Will taking Coral Calcium help me Live Longer?

In theory, Yes. Calcium is needed to support overall health and is essential for our survival. However, I'm guessing your question is a result of what you've read about the Japanese, their longevity, and coral calcium's role in the aging process of these unique people. This hypothesis may have some relevance.

The inhabitants of Okinawa's southern coral islands (Japan) have an average life expectancy of over 100 years, while the mainland Japanese are less than 80 years of age. Research has shown that these islands are made of coral reefs which are composed primarily of calcium. They have integrated coral sand into all aspects of their lives; including animal feed and fertilization of the land. Interestingly, this has to greater production of animal products and crops harvested. Theories also abound about how the addition of coral calcium to the soil has led to seepage into the drinking water, and the calcium purity of this water source. Some researchers claim that this water is the key to their longevity! [top]


There are many conflicting reports regarding the absorbability of Coral Calcium. Is it really any better than my regular calcium supplement?

Coral Calcium may provide the greatest absorption of all calcium supplements currently available. Scientists believe that this form of calcium provides a long-lasting matrix that is comparable to natural bone. Coral calcium is actually limestone made by living coral organisms. It is largely calcium carbonate, with an abundant amount of magnesium and other essential trace minerals. What's more is that these essential minerals have been previously digested by the coral polyp, thus the coral minerals are readily absorbed into the human body. The calcium and other naturally occurring minerals in coral support the delicate pH balance of our body's fluids and tissues. Calcium is the most abundant mineral in the body making up 1.5 - 2% of its total weight. [top]


What about the toxicities issues, and other contaminates, that are reported to be in Coral Calcium supplements?

Progressive Health ensures that all its supplements are tested for both maximum potency and maximum safety. The lead levels for Acktiva are less then .5ppm and are well below the established safety standards for calcium supplements. As well, Acktiva Coral Calcium is free of any dangerous, radioactive elements. [top]


If I decide to order Acktiva, are Progressive Health's products sent discreetly?

Yes; Progressive Health respects your privacy. All orders will be shipped in a plain, unmarked envelope with a return address from Progressive Health Nutraceuticals Inc. (For more information about our shipping and billing policies, see Shipping and Billing below) [top]


What results should I expect?

Every person's body chemistry is different and results vary. Some notice dramatic results within the first few days, others notice gradual differences over a period of time. The average time span for starting to achieve results reported by our customers is between 30-60 days of taking our products.

Due to the fact that our products are all-natural, there is no way to accurately determine the outcome of taking our products for every customer.

Are there any side effects when taking Acktiva?

As with all nutritional supplements, there is potential for reaction. Progressive Health ensures that all potential conflicts and side effects are listed on the product information pages. However, we strongly recommend consulting with your physician if you suffer from any pre-existing conditions, known allergies, or if you are currently taking any medications. Based on customer feedback, order history, and regular product overview, there has yet to be a report of any serious side effects resulting from the implementation of Progressive Health products into existing treatment programs.
