Nano Calcium Essential is produced by the award winning, World’s first, Top-Down technology - the process appropriate for producing nano-particle organic and inorganic materials.
This method crushes, cuts off, pressurizes, utilises friction, plus other -dimensional systems, for the manufacture of the highest quality, sphere-shaped nano-particle calcium, from mass volume edible oyster shells. The particle size distribution for Nano Calcium Essential is very narrow and uniform, mostly within 30-900nm, smaller than a human blood cell, see Fig 1.
The spherical shape of the particle allows perfect contact with other elements enabling it to be readily dissolved and ionized, then quickly absorbed into the body after consumption within the upper part of the small intestine, the duodenum. This innovative calcium product is produced by stringent quality controlled management systems. Nano Calcium Essential is 100,000 times smaller in particle size, and has 4 times better absorption, than general calcium supplements due to its unique nano-technology manufacturing process, enabling almost 100% absorption of calcium into the blood stream for utilisation by the body.
The average size of general calcium supplement particles commercially available is about the same as the diameter of a human hair, approximately 100μm, with a needle shape which cannot be easily digested or absorbed by the body, see Fig 2. Only ~23% of this elemental calcium consumed will be absorbed into the bloodstream due to its relative large particle size and shape. Some of the remaining undigested calcium may cause unwanted side effects, for example constipation or kidney stones. Therefore, a very small amount of Nano Calcium Essential is enough, compared to general calcium supplements, to provide the required additional calcium intake. This high absorption of Nano Calcium Essential also minimizes the risk of the side effects associated with undigested calcium.
According to recommendations from healthcare professionals calcium is absorbed most efficiently by our bodies when it is taken as 500mg or less per dose.
