"HAICAO GAI" - Seaweed Calcium Capsule
The role and importance of green seaweed to the human nutrition was mentioned before in the section about Spirulina, as an ingredient of “Gaoqian’’. The green Liucao seaweed, which is present in soft capsules ‘Chajcao Gaj’, resembles Spirulina and has a similar effect. It is worth to mention a large amount of vitamins present in the seaweed, (beta carotene, vitamins C, E, B, etc.) and minerals (magnesium, iodine, iron, selenium, zinc, etc.), and calcium among them.
There are many different calcium preparations sold at the chemist’s. Unfortunately, an easy to absorb calcium has not been obtained yet. However, it has to be mentioned that for the first time in the world wide practice due to the high technologies Chinese corporation ‘’Fohow’’ managed to extract calcium from the seaweed, which is almost completely and easily absorbed by a human organism, and it does not provoke any side effects.
It has to be mentioned, that the food supplement contains D group vitamins, obtained from vegetable oil, which make calcium better absorbed in the intestine and remain in the bones.
Calcium is very important, especially when we face osteoporosis problems, bone breaking, heart work disorders, etc. It is not enough to use the food which is rich in calcium; calcium needs to be absorbed. That is why it has to be transformed into ionic form. It happens in the stomach, under the influence of salt acid, and when its production is reduced, calcium absorption is disturbed. Gradually a deficit of calcium develops in the human organism: at the age of 40 it is typical to 50% of people, at age of 60 – 90%; it causes tiredness, early aging, reduced attention concentration, calf muscle spasms, heart and blood vessel system diseases and respiratory diseases. When growing older the process of bone tissue restoration slows down, it can cause bone disease – bone osteoporosis, resulting in the reduction of bone tissue volume. The reason for the disease – slow down in the absorption of calcium in the human organism, which can be hereditary or caused by the lack of feminine hormones in the period of menopause. Osteoporosis can develop because of bad ecological situation, poor nutrition, and insufficient amount of calcium entering a human organism. Very often osteoporosis is developing unnoticed and is identified only in cases of bone breaking even due to a light load or soft hit. Often osteoporosis is called “invisible epidemic”, placing it in the forth position in the list of fatal diseases (after heart and blood vessel, oncological and diabetes). Age factor is important in the development of the disease. According to the medical statistics, osteoporosis is registered among 30-50% of fifty year olds (mainly women), and after 75 a half of men and women suffer from it. Nowadays osteoporosis becomes a problem to young people as well.

More information about the product:
The green Liucao seaweed, an ingredient of Haicao Gai capsules, resembles spirulina seaweed - an ingredient of the previously described Gaoqian tablets - which plays an important role in human nutrition. The effects of Liucao seaweed are similar. It contains numerous vitamins including beta-carotene, C, E, B and others, minerals such as magnesium, iodine, iron, selenium, zinc and others along with calcium.
Many different calcium preparations are available for sale - unfortunately, no easily absorbed calcium has yet been obtained. However, calcium from the seaweed - easily and nearly entirely absorbed by a human organism with no side effects - was extracted by the Fohow Corporation in China for the first time in worldwide practice by its high technologies.
The B group vitamins in this food supplement are obtained from vegetable oil, which aid calcium absorption in the intestine and its retention in bones. Calcium is always important and especially so in the face of osteoporosis, broken bones, heart disorders and other maladies. Foods that are rich in calcium are not sufficient. Calcium must be absorbed. Thus it must be transformed into an ionic form, which occurs in the stomach under the influence of salt acid. If salt acid production is reduced, calcium absorption is disturbed. Gradually the human organism suffers a deficit of calcium. At age 40, calcium reduction is typical in up to 50% of people, and at age 60 - up to 90%. Calcium reduction causes fatigue, early aging, reduced attention concentration, calf muscle spasms, heart and blood vessel system diseases and respiratory diseases. While aging the process of bone tissue restoration slows down, and this can cause bone disease - osteoporosis -resulting in reduced bone tissue. The reason for the disease is a slow down in the absorption of calcium, which can be hereditary or, for women, a lack of female hormones after menopause. Osteoporosis can develop due to a poor ecological situation, poor nutrition and an insufficient amount of calcium entering a human organism. Very often osteoporosis develops unnoticed until bones break even when suffering a light load or soft hit before it is identified. Osteoporosis is often called the “invisible epidemic”. It is fourth in the list of fatal diseases following heart and blood vessel problems, cancer and diabetes. Age is an important factor in the development of this disease.
