Almost every calcium supplement on the market is made from marble or limestone. If you look at your current calcium product, the supplements facts box will call it "calcium carbonate" or "calcium citrate" or some other name, but it is simply ground up rocks! You wouldn't think of making a peanut butter and marble sandwich, or a lemon and limestone pie, so why eat rock calcium supplements?
You might have wondered why your calcium pills are large and hard to swallow, then constipate and cause digestive discomfort. The absorption rate is very low. Sometimes calcium in the body can turn to kidney stones, heel spurs, calcifications in the joints, arteries, etc..
Two major British Medical Journal studies, involving thousands of participants, show traditional limestone calcium supplements are increasing heart attack risk. You probably saw the alarming headlines in major newspapers in the summer of 2010 and spring of 2011 when these study results were announced. Many in the medical community were dumbfounded and criticized the design of the first study, but now the second study is hard to refute. The fact is, when we consume large quantities of non-food calcium supplements, some of the calcium gets deposited in arterial plaque. This calcified arterial plaque clogs arteries, causing an increased risk of heart attacks and strokes.
Why Do We Still Carry Some Rock Brands?
We carry less and less and try and educate, but for some of our customers we carry what they ask for or what they are told to buy.
The good news reported in these two studies, is that calcium from FOODS do NOT cause arterial calcification. Foods that naturally contain calcium also supply other minerals which direct the calcium into bone rather than soft tissues like arteries, kidneys and eyes. A food source of calcium from an ocean algae is a safer choice than rock calcium because it is a natural balance of nutrients.
Food calcium is also safer because it is effective at a lower dose. Less calcium means less arterial plaque.
Algae calcium along with K-2 is worth educating yourself to make the choice of which calcium is best for you.

1. Proper levels of stomach acid are needed to adequately absorb many nutrients including minerals (iron, copper, zinc and calcium), vitamin B12, folic acid and proteins.
2. Stomach acid is also a crucial part of the immune system. The acid barrier of the stomach during normal states of health easily and quickly kills bacteria and other bugs that enter the body. It also prevents bacteria in the intestines from migrating up and colonizing the stomach.

What are essential oils?
Essential Oils are the naturally occurring volatile oils obtained by steam distillation or cold pressing (expression), having the characteristic aroma of the plant part from which it was derived. These pure oils are "neat", meaning they have not been processed, diluted or manipulated in any way with solvents or other additives. Although a particular species of plant harvested and distilled for its essential oil during a particular growing season in a specific region may produce a fragrance that differs from the same species grown in a different region, many of the main chemical markers and physical specifications may be very similar.
NOW's citrus fruit essential oils are 100% cold pressed. Our other essential oils are typically 100% steam distilled.
Do essential oils have a grading system to tell me which is better?
There is no official grading system that grades essential oils as A, B, C or Therapeutic grade. All NOW pure essential oils are accurately labeled as such and are the highest purity and quality available.
Are NOW essential oils pure or do they have anything added to them?
All of our pure essential oils are labeled as such. We also sell clearly labeled oil blends that are formulated with essential oils or absolute extracts and another oil as a base, usually pure grapeseed oil. Natural Essential Oils by their very nature will vary slightly from season to season. We allow nature to take its course and do not add isolated compounds to the oil to try to standardize the naturally occurring variations of a particular oil. We take both the organoleptic (sight, smell and taste) and chemical properties into account when selecting and testing NOW essential oils.
What are NOW's criteria for testing essential oils?
Our Quality Assurance and Quality Control departments adhere to specifications used by the Essential Oils and Flavor Industry and published in The Essential Oils by Guenther, as well as Fenaroli's Handbook of Flavor Ingredients. These texts, as well as other sources of scientific information, detail specific physical and chemical properties of a particular oil. A partial list of the components that we analyze include Specific Gravity, Refractive Index, Optical Rotation, Flash Point, Infrared Absorption (as published in FCC), Solubility, Taste/Odor, Color/Appearance, Heavy Metals and Predominant Active Chemical Components.
Our in-house laboratory employs state-of-the-art analytical equipment that allows us to perform highly specialized analyses, such as Gas Chromatography and Infrared Spectrometry. We use our own analysis results to confirm specification sheet results and certificates of analyses received from 3rd party outside laboratories and vendors. As always, when it comes to Essential Oils, individual practitioners and consumers will decide for themselves which variety of a flower or leaf produces the essential oil that best suits their particular need. With NOW pure essential oils, you can be assured that you have the real thing.
