What is Coral Calcium?

Coral calcium is a calcium supplement that is derived from coral that has become a fossil (such as what is found in limestone). It is often sold as a health supplement that can cure anything from obesity to cancer, but coral calcium is calcium carbonate, just like most other calcium supplements.
