Mark Martin of Martell, Nebraska has always strongly believed in taking the natural approach to health. “I have been eating healthy for 30 years and taking hefty doses of vitamins for around 25 years. I’m in better health than most of my friends.” But unfortunately, Mark’s DEXA scan results revealed a startling fact - he had extremely low bone density in his spine and his hip was borderline osteoporotic.

Of course the flip side of that (the conundrum I just mentioned) is when we find out that people who have achieved such incredible results stop taking AlgaeCal! When this happens, it actually pains me to think that those customers are heading right back down the slippery slope of inevitable bone loss. Let me tell you why… Why You Should Always Take Your Calcium  A study carried out by New Zealand’s University of Auckland examined data from 322 healthy men to find out whether the proven positive effects on bone mineral density (BMD)…
