According to The National Osteoporosis Foundation: Approximately 9 million Americans have osteoporosis and another 43 million have low bone density, placing them at increased risk. One in two women and up to one in four men will break a bone in their lifetime due to osteoporosis. For women, the incidence is greater than that of heart attack, stroke and breast cancer combined.  With numbers like that, we all know someone or someone who knows someone that has been affected by osteoporosis or what is often called, “the silent disease.” That’s why it’s so important to raise awareness. As Bone Health Ambassador for the National Osteoporosis Foundation, Barbara Hannah Grufferman said in her recent article, So You Broke a Bone…Now What?: “If you’re over 50 and fracture a bone, there’s a very good shot you’ll be treated and released without first having…

Boron is a trace mineral, which means your body only needs it in small amounts.  But don’t let that fool you.  Just because your body only needs a tiny bit, does not mean it’s any less important when it comes to your health. That’s why I want to share what this trace mineral can do for you! The 7 Surprising Benefits of Boron You Didn’t Know Of  Boron is an anti-inflammatory agent. This is extremely beneficial because when your body is chronically inflamed, it activates osteoclasts and increases bone loss. Boron protects against oxidative stress. Oxidative stress means there is an imbalance between the production of free radicals and the ability of your body to detoxify their harmful effects.  In animal studies, boron not only decreased induced oxidative stress, but it increased the antioxidant defense mechanisms of the animals and…

An Experiment by Swedish Grocery Chain Coop Has One Family Demonstrate The Difference Eating Organic Makes. “The organic effect is presented by Coop, a Swedish supermarket chain that promises to do everything it can to support organic farming, and urges others who sell food to do the same.” As this video shows, Coop had a typical Swedish family participate in a three-week experiment switching from conventional to organic food. During the first week of the experiment, the five members of the family ate their usual conventional meals and gave urine samples each day. The urine samples were tested independently by the Swedish Environment Research Institute IVL. 12 pesticides were chosen to test and 8 out of the 12 showed up in the family of 5. After one week, the family switched to a 100% organic meal plan for two weeks.…

I couldn’t wait any longer to tell you the incredible news… As you know, we at AlgaeCal Inc believe in the truth of properly conducted science. That’s why we had AlgaeCal Plus and Strontium Boost studied by some of the top researchers in the field – to make sure that our products are safe and effective. And that’s how we came to be the only calcium supplement proven to increase bone density at any stage and at any age in your life (even in your 80’s). But all 5 groups of study participants up to this point have been studied at 6 or 12 months – relatively short term.  So nobody could predict bone density results if taken for longer. Of course, each of the nutrients in our products are natural components of human bone – so one would guess…
