PHYTOCAL O is a multi-mineral formula design for each blood type. Designed by Dr. Peter D'Adamo, these products feature a unique natural source of calcium: The small red seaweed called "Maerl" found only in the isolated areas off the pristine coast of Northwest Ireland. Of all sources of calcium Maerl has one of the lowest levels of undesirable contaminants. Using Maerl calcium as a base, Dr. D'Adamo has crafted four different mineral formulas using unique cofactors and micro-mineral ratios specific for each blood type.
Maerl is composed of a wide variety of essential nutrients including calcium, magnesium, boron and zinc. Maerl's unique structure gives it great versatility, and when woven into formulas tailored to the genetics of ABO blood type, insures a phenomenal rate of bioavailability and utilization.
All Phytocal® mineral formulas feature Maerl-based sea calcium, the only natural source of calcium with a broad enough buffering range to work effectively amid the widely differing digestive capabilities of each blood type. Because each blood type possesses variable assimilation capabilities and requires differing cofactor and trace mineral requirements Dr. D'Adamo designed four different formulas.
