Are you at risk for osteoporosis? Do you already have osteoporosis and want to slow your bone loss and increase your bone mass density? If so, there’s a new supplement called AlgaeCal that’s been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and is organically certified.
How AlgaeCal Is Different
Most people continue to build up bone mass until their mid-thirties. Beyond that, we begin to lose bone mass density at a rate of approximately one percent each year. While many people take calcium supplements to combat this bone degeneration, they may not be enough, and these supplements often need to be combined with others to promote absorption.
AlgaeCal is much different than traditional calcium supplements because it isn’t made of calcium carbonate, calcium citrate, limestone or marble. AlgaeCal is naturally sourced from marine algae in South America. The algae grows into a ball about the size of a kiwi. The algae are then harvested by hand, placed in the sun to dry and then milled into a powder. No further processing or additives are involved, leaving you with a completely natural product. AlgaeCal has been certified organic by IBD Certificacoes, and endorsed by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and the International Federation of Organic Agriculture Movements (IFOAM), certifying the algae is also free of pollutants.
Support for AlgaeCal
In two clinical studies conducted by Integrative Health Technologies, Inc. and the International Journal of Medical Sciences, AlgaeCal was found to increase the bone density of participants in as little as six months and stopped bone loss at a year. There were also no reported side effects.
On the April 12 episode of "Dr. Oz," Dr. Mehmet Oz recommended AlgaeCal to help strengthen bones and increase bone density. He raved about how natural and effective this dietary supplement can be for those who are at risk for osteoporosis.
Protecting Your Bones With AlgaeCal
As you age, you lose many of the naturally occurring minerals and nutrients in your body, which contributes to bone degeneration. AlgaeCal contains minerals and nutrients not found in other calcium supplements, including magnesium and 70 types of minerals and phytonutrients. All of these work together to slow down the process of bone loss.
Another component of AlgaeCal that’s important to your bone health is silica. Most people don’t get nearly enough silica in their diet -- only about five to 20 milligrams -- and it’s crucial to prevent brittle bones. AlgaeCal contains 65 milligrams of silica to keep bones strong.
AlgaeCal is highly bio-accessible and easy to digest. In fact, 97 percent of the calcium in AlgaeCal begins integrating itself into the bones within 30 minutes of taking it. AlgaeCal can be taken as an individual supplement and is being added to other supplements as their primary calcium component. These products are in either capsule or softgel form and can be taken daily with food or water.
