A Brief History of the Invention of the Orotates Used in IntraCal
IntraCal is designed around Dr. Hans Nieper's groundbreaking research!
Dr. Hans Nieper, a physician and experimenter, believed minerals in an
orotate form pass through cell membranes easily without breaking apart
and reach the areas where it’s needed most. The unique molecular
structure of calcium orotate is able to penetrate bones, cartilage, and
other tissue to act as a superior mineral transporter.
Dr. Hans Nieper’s explanations rely heavily on a theory called "fixed
pore mechanism," which suggests attaching a carrier molecule, Orotic
Acid (B-13), to the compound being transported. This research has
inspired the creation of mineral chelates called orotic acid chelates
(or orotates) which offer a 20-fold increase in mineral utilization.
Dr. Nieper often combined magnesium orotate with calcium orotate to
achieve optimal effect. Magnesium orotate acts as a "transporter" to
help push calcium more efficiently through your cells so it can reach
bones, brain, and the cardiovascular system. Magnesium promotes the
proper absorption of calcium by your bones and is vitally important for a
healthy cardiovascular system.
