Coral

IN THIS ARTICLE

How does Coral work?

Surgeons use coral as a replacement for bone. It seems to allow the body to grow new bone in its place.

Are there safety concerns?

Coral used in surgery seems safe for most people. There is not enough information to know if coral taken by mouth is safe. Some oral coral products contain lead.

Do not use coral if:
  • You are pregnant or breast-feeding.

Dosing considerations for Coral.

The appropriate dose of coral depends on several factors such as the user's age, health, and several other conditions. At this time there is not enough scientific information to determine an appropriate range of doses for coral. Keep in mind that natural products are not always necessarily safe and dosages can be important. Be sure to follow relevant directions on product labels and consult your pharmacist or physician or other healthcare professional before using.
