Calcium Orotate is a premier calcium supplement for the discriminating consumer. Calcium orotate is a mineral transporter where calcium is bound to orotic acid, a natural component of whey. Calcium orotate penetrates the entire cellular membrane and delivers the calcium to the INTRACELLULAR structures (mitochondria, and other organelles). This compound is attracted to bone, cartilage, liver, brain and the circulatory system where the molecule can enter the cells of these tissues releasing calcium inside the cell avoiding the hypercalcemia common to other calcium supplements.
How do mineral transport substances work? Mineral transporters release mineral ions at a site where we want it to be released. Dr. Hans Nieper believed that mineral transporters can write an address on the mineral — and have it go to selective organs to activate enzymes, or for restoring tissue structure. Calcium orotate along with calcium arginate are ideal mineral supplements in conditions connected with decalcification and injury of bones and joints, such as bone fractures, cartilage degeneration, spinal pain, muscle cramps, osteoporosis, rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis. Dr. Nieper believed that the use of these active mineral transporters could be beneficial in improving calcium metabolism in these conditions.
