Water-Purifying Agent Made From Natural Coral Grains
The natural coral grains used in this product are harvested from the beautiful ocean off semi-tropical Okinawa. Also known as coral sand, this product is composed primarily of the shells and skeletons of reef-building coral and Foraminifera, such as star sand, that inhabit the area. To form their shells and skeletons, these organisms ingest minerals – mainly calcium and magnesium – from the ocean. As a result, coral sand is constituted mainly (approx. 95%) of calcium carbonate. However, it also contains abundant amounts of many minerals – calcium, magnesium, etc. – that people need from their daily meals in order to be healthy.
When coral sand is used as a water-purifying agent, its minerals flow into the water, creating delicious mineral water with a balance of minerals. At the same time, it turns acidic tap water slightly alkaline and removes the bleachy odor from it. Moreover, since coral sand is a porous substance with innumerable minute holes of 10 µm or less, it also absorbs and removes heavy metals, foreign matter, and more.
- As a water-purifying agent for drinking water used in the food industry.
