I just started taking AlgaeCal Plus twice daily with the Stontium Boost at bedtime. I am experiencing intestinal upset from it with loose bowels, and it is certainly an unpleasant experience. I am also iron intolerant. Could this have anything to do with it? Please help! I have osteoporosis, and need help building my bones!

OMG! ODF lists to print out. What a concept and what a smart site. So sick of scrolling for HOURS through crap to be able to say NO or to get what I want. These are GREAT!

I noticed that you did not list dried prunes in your top 42 calcium rich food list. I believe I read one of your prior articles about a study that concluded that dried prunes seemed to be superior in calcium content as compared to figs and oranges.???? Like eating approx. 7 per day? Also as a plant based eater, I wondered what the calcium content is in flax seeds?

Jenna AlgaeCal

Hi Bernice,

Prunes are great for our bone health because they are an excellent source of antioxidants like polyphenols, vitamin C, vitamin K, and fiber! They’re also high in boron, one of the essential minerals our bones need to be replenished.

As far as calcium content, prunes contain around 20 mg of calcium in 5 pieces – so you would need to eat a lot more to get a similar amount of calcium as a single orange! And flax seeds contain around 255 mg of calcium per 100 g ๐Ÿ™‚

Hope that helps, Bernice!

Thank you for your list. Wish more would give you true and accurate list when they tell you what you shouldn’t eat or do, but most of the time they only want to sell you something. You say your product will work in 6 months if taken with your strontium product. I do have a question for AlgaeCal. What do you think about the new research that says strontium may not actually improve bone density as quickly as you say but due to it’s heavier molecular structure only gives a false reading? Also there are companies that, just as you do, tell you that certain things should not be taken together, yet if you get these minerals and elements from nature they are most of the time together. People also need to remember that you can give your body everything that might help but if your body is not digesting properly or absorbing properly that makes a big difference. And your gut needs to function properly as far as elimination and absorption. Your body needs to get all the proper nutrients together, in many if not all cases, to work properly or best.

Does this product cause calcium deposits in the breast tissue?

Jenna AlgaeCal
Jenna AlgaeCal

Hi Karen,

Great question! AlgaeCal is a natural, plant-based calcium that does not cause calcium deposits in soft tissues! Because it is a plant calcium, our body actually recognizes it as food, similar to broccoli, spinach, and other leafy greens. We have also added in vitamin K2 which helps transport calcium away from soft tissues and into your bones! The safety of AlgaeCal is demonstrated in all 3 of our human clinical studies you can see here.

Feel free to call our Bone Health Consultants at 1-800-820-0184 if you have any questions! We’re here to help ๐Ÿ™‚

Will algaecal help with fibromyalgia, psoriatic arthritis and spondilytis?

Jenna AlgaeCal
Jenna AlgaeCal

Hi Sarah,

Thank you for commenting! AlgaeCal is clinically proven to increase bone density, as based on numerous peer-reviewed and published human clinical studies you can find here: https://www.algaecal.com/research/. While we do not have any specific studies of AlgaeCal and its benefits for these conditions, we do know that the program provides much-needed nutrition and beneficial minerals to the skeletal system and our body overall! Many members of our community share with us that theyโ€™ve seen benefits in this context, however, our proven clinical research is based on the measured increase in bone density as recorded in a DEXA scan.

Sarah, all three of these conditions are related to chronic inflammation in the body! We have a natural anti-inflammatory product called Triple Power Fish Oil that has helped many members of our community with arthritic pain, skin conditions, and other inflammatory issues. We would love to share with you a success story sent in by Annette Mitchell, who has suffered from fibromyalgia for many years and is now almost 100% pain-free after taking Triple Power:

We are temporarily out of stock of Triple Power, but you can join our waitlist here: https://www.algaecal.com/product/triple-omega3-fish-oil/

We hope this helps ๐Ÿ™‚ You can always email [email protected] or call 1-800-820-0184 to speak with one of our Bone Health Consultants if you have any questions!

I’m having some problems with the Algecal,whenever I take it it gives me loose bowels. I have the same problem with the power boost. The fish oil also bothers me. What could it be in the capsules that is causing this? I really wanted to continue this but it seems I’m running to the bathroom a half hour after taking it & yes I take it with food.

Hi Rita,

Sorry to hear AlgaeCal is not agreeing with you. We will be reaching out shortly to find the best solution for you. In the meantime, please discontinue use.

I have just returned from a 3 day food wellness conference.
It was emphasiz that we should not consume low or nonfat dairy – and that whole fat dairy is better for us. Do you have any comments on this.
Cheers

Monica
Monica

Hi Patricia,
Great catch! We actually do recommend whole fat dairy as we agree it’s a better option. I’ll make sure to update the infographic ๐Ÿ™‚

What does alcohol consumption have to do with increasing bone density ?
I am taking your products and I hope after a year, my bone density will be back up to normal. I was 1/2 way to osteoporosis when I got a compression fracture of a bone in my back.
