All coral supplied to NOW FOODS by Coral Inc. is harvested from an above sea area in Okinawa, Japan. Thousands of years ago this coral was a thriving coral reef. Geologically, this coral was pushed up above sea level, free from the ocean pollution of the industrial era. Only the pristine white coral heads are harvested. This harvesting process involves removal of the protective layer of soil that accumulated over the years and collecting the ancient coral. After the coral is collected it is ground into a 2 to 10 micron size powder (smaller than a red blood cell). After grinding the coral is purified in a vacuum ozone chamber and then packaged for distribution.
