Easy Calcium Frequently Asked Questions:

What is in Easy Calcium?

Easy Calcium is made of organic compounds. Unlike inorganic calcium sources such as calcium carbonate, calcium citrate, or coral calcium, which are easily found in the earth as reefs, rocks or limestone, Easy Calcium is scientifically extracted based on proprietary technology, and is guaranteed to be soluble for absorption and subsequent bio-utilization.Easy Calcium is made of Calcium Gluconate Lactate, in a base of Calcium FructoBorate and Fiberrific (Partially Hydrolyzed Inulin). Both Calcium FructoBorate and Fiberrific are clinically proven calcium absorption enhancers.All raw materials contained in Easy Calcium are extracted from plants and vegetables.

How do I take Easy Calcium?

Easy Calcium can be mixed in any non-carbonated drink (hot or cold). For best results, blend into water, juices, milk, tea, coffee, or any other beverage and enjoy.

When do I take Easy Calcium?

You can achieve optimal absorption by taking Easy Calcium twice daily on an empty stomach.

Why is Easy Calcium superior to inorganic calcium sources?

In contrast to the high-tech nature of Easy Calcium, common inorganic minerals that are used in majority of vitamin and mineral supplements today are minerals that are easily found in nature or in the earth as rocks or limestone.

Easy Calcium is made using Organic Calcium Gluconate Lactate. Common inorganic calcium supplements are not considered in the same league in the school of nutrition.

Other calcium supplements are difficult to take, poorly absorbed and can cause digestive problems. Easy Calcium is tasteless, odourless and can be mixed in any drink or food without changing its taste. Easy Calcium is highly absorbable and bioavailable, without causing digestive difficulties

.Easy Calcium is the only calcium supplement that increases bone density by stimulating osteoblast activities and enhancing collagen production.*Easy Calcium also prevents gastrointestinal (G.I.) distress. Inorganic calcium supplements can cause magma precipitation. This precipitation can coat the mucous membrane, resulting in diarrhea and constipation. Calcium Gluconate Lactate, however, does not form magma precipitation, and using them will not cause stomach disorders, small intestine stones or kidney stones.

In addition Easy Calcium is kept intact from many compounds regularly found in foodstuffs. Those compounds that commonly exist in foods, such as carbonates, phosphates, oxalates and phytates, oftentimes attach themselves to inorganic calcium to form insoluble precipitates. These precipitates will further reduce the absorption of calcium in the small intestine.

What are the benefits available only from Easy Calcium?

Easy Calcium has created a gap between itself and other calciums with its unmatched high absorption rate and high bioavailability. Its unique approach of increasing bone density by stimulating osteoblasts activities and enhancing collagen production also sets it apart from competition.*

There are many benefits you can only get from Easy Calcium but not other calciums. To name a few, choosing Easy Calcium will help prevent G.I. distress, kidney stones or small intestine stones.

Easy Calcium can be most effectively used for the following symptoms*:

  • osteoporosis loss of bone mass
  • arthritis (osteoarthritis)
  • joint and cartilage damage
  • bone fracture
  • bone spur
  • back pain / lower back pain
  • nerve / muscle pain, and
  • boost energy

Easy Calcium is the best choice for children and teens for bone, teeth and muscle development. Its high absorption rate guarantees that the young generation will have the opportunities to develop to their full potential.

Easy Calcium is ideal for seniors for bone, teeth and heart health. Its high absorption rate and gentle effect on the digestive system guarantees that seniors will be able to obtain all the calcium they need to remain healthy.

How do you compare Easy Calcium with other calciums?

Inorganic calcium supplements are not in the same league with Easy Calcium. Competing products including various forms of amino acid chelates of calcium available for commercial use are in hydrous form, in other words, they all contain two or more crystalline water in the molecules. As a result, the bonding of amino acid molecules to calcium ions is often too weak to stay stable. In essence they are not better than common inorganic calcium supplements.

Easy Calcium is made of Calcium Gluconate Lactate, in a base of Calcium FructoBorate and Fiberrific (Partially Hydrolyzed Inulin). Both Calcium FructoBorate and Fiberrific are clinically proven calcium absorption enhancers. We guarantee that Easy Calcium is soluble in the small intestine for absorption and subsequent bio-utilization.

How do you compare Easy Calcium with Coral Calcium?

The longevity myths of the Okinawa have been around for centuries. It did not get attention from the West until recent years. After years of research, scientists have successfully identified one of the key factors that contribute to the unusual healthiness of the Okinawans: the drinking water in Okinawa contains organic calcium compounds that are highly absorbable.

What is in the coral calcium? Coral calcium products are composed of calcium carbonate, the very same inorganic calcium compound you may find in other sources such as rocks or limestone. From a scientific point of view, there is hardly any difference between coral calcium and other once popular traditional calcium supplements such as Tums. They are all hard to absorb, and may all cause kidney stones, lung stones and small intestine stones. On the other hand, the development of Easy Calcium was powered by many years of persistent research on the myth of the Okinawa and the latest technology breakthroughs. As a result, Easy Calcium has significantly higher absorption rates and works in a wider range of pH environment.

Dr. Stephen Barrett, whose Quackwatch website is dedicated to exposing medical quackery and who has investigated Barefoot's activities, reports that his advertising has generated over 300 inquires to his site, more than for any other product.


Why doesn't Easy Calcium contain Vitamin D or magnesium?

Traditional calcium supplements are made of inorganic calcium and are hardly absorbed in the pH medium of the small intestine. They rely on "active transport" sites, located at the beginning of the small intestine, for absorption. These sites are vitamin D dependent and are limited as to the amount of calcium that they can absorb.

Taking traditional calcium supplements suppresses your body's ability to absorb magnesium. In the pH environment of the small intestine, inorganic minerals tend to attach themselves to one another and form precipitation. Once precipitated, the minerals fall out of solution and become nonabsorbable. Therefore, taking inorganic calcium supplements will dramatically reduce magnesium absorption. That is exactly why one needs to supplement magnesium while taking inorganic calcium.

Easy Calcium, on the other hand, does not need Vitamin D for absorption. Easy Calcium is absorbed in its molecular form therefore it doesn't need to use Vitamin D as a carrier to penetrate the mucous membrane. Easy Calcium is able to take advantage of the independent "passive diffusion" sites in the more alkaline environment at the end of the small intestine. These sites allow absorption regardless of stomach acid levels, age, gender, nutrition or hormone status. Highly soluble throughout the entire digestive tract, Easy Calcium is an extremely bioavailable form of calcium. Easy Calcium doesn't interact with other compounds thanks to its calcium having a strong molecular structure. Therefore Easy Calcium will not affect magnesium absorption.

What should I expect to feel when I start taking Easy Calcium?

You will notice that you have more energy. And symptoms such as pain, cramps, and weakness subside in about a week or two.

I'm on medication. Is it safe to take Easy Calcium?

Easy Calcium is absolutely safe and does not interfere with any prescription drugs.

Will Easy Calcium cause kidney stones?

It is common for inorganic calcium supplements to cause kidney stones and small intestine stones due to low solubility and poor absorption rate. Easy Calcium is made of a highly soluble and absorbable organic calcium. Easy Calcium is one of the few, if not the only, calcium supplements that will not cause kidney stones.

I'm a 32-year-old man. Do I need Easy Calcium?

Osteoporosis and low bone mass are a major public health threat for an estimated 44 million US women and men aged 50 and older. A new National Osteoporosis Foundation (NOF) report estimates, by state, congressional District and the top 25 metro areas, the prevalence of low bone mass and osteoporosis in women and men aged 50 and over

While women who have osteoporosis are four times more than men, almost 12 million men are now estimated to have low bone mass. By 2010, this figure is expected to climb to over 14 million and reach over 17 million men by 2020. Studies show low calcium intake during younger ages is the major cause of osteoporosis or low bone mass at a later date. The NOF recommends that men of all ages have adequate daily calcium intake to prevent development of osteoporosis. So the answer to your question is yes. You should start taking Easy Calcium as early as possible.

Are there any side effects with Easy Calcium?

Easy Calcium is perfectly safe. There are no known side effects to this date.

Can I use Easy Calcium for my children?

Easy Calcium is the best friend for children and teens. Calcium is essential to their bones, teeth and muscle development. Choosing a good calcium supplement for your kids is critical to their growth. Traditional calcium supplements may damage their stomach and cause problems in the long run.

No calcium supplement will be effective if your child refuses to take it. Easy calcium is ideal because your children won't even know they are getting a calcium supplement. Just mix into any non-carbonated drink (milk, water, juice, lemonade, ice tea, hot chocolate, sports drinks, etc). They'll never be able to smell, feel or taste the difference. Easy Calcium is highly absorbable and bioavailable and it does not have any side effects. It is simply the best calcium source for all ages.

Why can't I just increase absorption by taking more doses of inorganic calcium?

You could. But as a result there will be more inorganic minerals precipitated in your stomach and small intestine, and the excess amount of magma precipitation will cause G.I. tract distress such as diarrhea or constipation. The precipitate can also absorb crucial vitamins as it is excreted, thus depriving the body of essential vitamins. Therefore, increasing the amount of common inorganic calcium supplements would actually be detrimental to your health.
