When I was deciding between the barrage of calcium supplements, the saleswoman put in her two cents:
She explained that she prefers Calcium Hydroxyapatite due to the fact that it contains all the normal minerals that bones contain in them. And why is that?
Because Calcium Hydroxyapatite is derived from actual bone – ground up animal bone.
Interesting notion. Sorta makes sense. But where are those animals from? Were they watered with municipal water? Or did they roam around drinking river and well water?
Because if they drank municipal water, they’re full of fluoride – and their bones are full of fluoride – and the calcium in the Calcium Hydroxyapatite capsules is full of fluoride (and the broth made from their bones is full of fluoride).
In fact more than 60% of our supplement product ingredients are from China. I don’t have anything against China . . . but that does leave a lot of questions unanswered. In terms of fluoride, China doesn’t intentionally fluoridate its water however some parts of that huge country have high levels of naturally fluoridated water. As a matter of fact there have been some excellent studies that have been conducted in China regarding the effects of that “natural” fluoride on children’s IQ and on children’s kidneys.
And if the Calcium Hydroxyapatite in a particular supplement is sourced in the U.S.A., does that make me feel any more confident that it doesn’t contain high levels of fluoride?! NOT!!
Where does the calcium in our supplements come from? – I mean the calcium that is NOT Calcium Hydroxyapatite. Regular Calcium.
