AlgaeCal’s Formulating Philosophy

AlgaeCal's Formulation Philosophy

They say ‘necessity is the mother of invention’, and this definitely applies to the motivation behind the creation of AlgaeCal multi mineral calcium supplements.

Over 10 years ago Dean Neuls, AlgaeCal CEO observed a completely flawed approach to bone health supplementation. The norm was to give women large pills with excessive amounts of calcium, little vitamin D, and no trace minerals – far from a balanced approach. Our bones are composed of more than 70 minerals so why only give one?

What’s worse, the vast majority of calcium supplements are made from rock. On top of that, rock based products (called calcium carbonate or calcium citrate) do not include any cofactors that science has proven are essential for bone growth, like trace minerals boron, silicon, vanadium, and vitamins D3 and K2.

Dean felt compelled to offer something more effective than typical rock calcium supplements, as every year more and more women and men are incapacitated by osteoporosis. This is partly due to the mineral and calcium deficiency that so many suffer from due to modern, nutrient-poor diets. It’s also a result of rock calcium supplements being able to only slow your bone loss. Slowing down a problem does not fix it, so Dean knew a better product was needed.

Dean noted the many problems with mainstream calcium supplements and decided to raise the bar with:

  • USDA Certified Organic organic, multi mineral, high calcium algaes (plants) crushed into powder.
  • Ample Vitamin D3 and Vitamin K2 that both are crucial for those with a calcium deficiency for the calcium to actually reach your bones, and not get stuck in soft tissues and arteries (a dangerous side effect of rock calciums).
  • Vegetable (not bovine) capsules that are dissolved and absorbed by the body much more than tablets that require glues and super pressure and heating to bind them.

The result? An exceptional supplement that in clinical studies renders superior bone health results.
