Recently we asked Lara if she would help us provide a series of short, ongoing videos to help you (our customers and readers) stay up to date on the latest facts and science related to bone health and overcoming osteoporosis naturally. In this latest video, Lara talks about a study conducted by researchers from the Harvard Medical School and University of Connecticut where the scientists compared the effects of AlgaeCal with the top-sellers, calcium carbonate and calcium citrate. Watch the video below (or read the transcript provided) and let us know what you think in the comments. Hello, my name is Lara Pizzorno the author…

With the Vancouver weather being beautiful, sunny and hot the past couple of weeks, the AlgaeCal team has been taking advantage of it and doing some cool summer activities. Our CEO Dean Neuls and Director of Marketing, Adam Killam are off for another fishing trip, this time up the coast of Vancouver Island!

In this article, we’re sharing an important message that we feel has the potential to save lives. In light of it being National Osteoporosis Month in the U.S, please take a minute to fully read this content. We’re also going to ask that you forward this article on to other women and men that you know who could be at risk of developing osteoporosis. As you’ll see in a moment, it often affects people who seem healthy on the outside but have no idea they’re coming down with this potentially fatal disease. You’ve probably heard that osteoporosis is known as “the silent killer.” What you may not know, is why. The fact is that even seemingly healthy individuals can develop osteoporosis without ever showing a single symptom. In fact, most people never find out they have osteoporosis until they suddenly…

Algaecal / Exercise / May 15, 2014

Stair climbing is considered a convenient and beneficial weight-bearing exercise. While walking is a great bone-building exercise, climbing the stairs can be considered ‘taking-it-up-a-notch’ in terms of putting increased stress on your muscles and joints (in a good way) to build strength and reduce your risk of falling. When you are climbing the stairs, you must concentrate on your balance and work muscles and joints in a way they would not be working if you were to go for a walk instead. So the next time you see a flight of stairs next to an elevator, opt for those stairs because you are not only getting your daily physical activity in, but you are also increasing your bone strength too.

Barbara Briddle from Arizona was crushed when her doctor broke the news… …she had osteoporosis in her lower spine, and osteopenia (borderline osteoporosis) in her hip and neck. She was immediately prescribed traditional medication for her treatment. But Barbara feared the warnings associated with chemical drugs and was extremely concerned about their side effects. She began researching alternative osteoporosis treatments, read an article about multi-mineral, all natural plant based AlgaeCal and decided to give it a try… And it changed her life. Within a year and a half of her initial DEXA test, the bone density in Barbara’s spine had increased by 6.5%, and her hip by 1.5%. Two years later, her spine improved again – by 10.3%, and also her hip, by 14%! This has put her in the “normal” bone density range. The bone density in Barbara’s neck…

I hope to meet you soon!   In today’s world, it’s difficult to get all the nutrients we need. Depleted soils just don’t offer all the nutrients to plants that they used to. Pollution, chemicals and toxins that end up in our food, air and water also reduce the amount of nutrients we are able to absorb. Inflammation, compromised gut lining, sugar and stress all drain our system of nutrition. With all of this working against us, what’s a person to do to maintain healthy bones? In my integrative…

Due to an explosion of information, it sometimes takes longer to sift and find pertinent data than it does to read it! And health advice is no exception. With baby boomers being such a large, often affluent demographic, many ‘Experts’ have jumped on board proffering advice, tips, stretches, lunges, dips, recipes, mantras and more, all intending to make seniors healthier. Confused by all the advice? Wouldn’t fault you if you were. To save you sifting through all the information out there, we’ve gone ahead and asked 40 known Health Experts to boil down all their wisdom into a couple of bite sized chunks. Specifically we wanted to know : If you could only recommend 2 exercises for seniors, which 2 would you recommend? Here’s what they said… Tara Marie Segundo, M.A., Personal Trainer – TaraMarie.com TOP TWO SENIOR EXERCISE RECOMMENDATIONS If…

Study Says When You Supplement Is Crucial Apparently it’s better to arrive at the gym on an empty stomach if you want to speed up fat burning and weight loss. And who doesn’t want to do that, right? But new evidence states that if you work out having skipped breakfast, you may be losing not only fat, but bone density too! One of the benefits of what is called ‘intermittent fasting’ is that you accelerate weight loss, kind of by tricking your own body. And that’s the intention if you hit the gym in the morning before eating. The theory is that the energy you expend to lift weights comes from carbs. So working out on empty means, because carbs are not available, your energy must come from elsewhere. The ‘elsewhere’ is the only thing left that’s available – stored…

Listen HERE as Lara Pizzorno, MDiv, author of Your Bones discusses her book and bone health with Elena del Valle, host of the HispanicMPR.com podcast. Lara is member of the American Medical Writers Association with 29 years of experience with bone health. Her motivation to learn how to naturally fight osteoporosis came from being directly affected by it, as it’s a condition that runs in her family. Lara discovered AlgaeCal because she has been a medical writer and editor of a medical journal and recently wrote ‘Love Your Bones’, a book on bone health. She was constantly looking at the research on bone health and found a number of studies that got her interested in AlgaeCal. She discovered two laboratory studies (in vitro and cell culture) in which AlgaeCal greatly outperformed the other forms of calcium: calcium carbonate and calcium…

Algaecal / Calcium / Nutrition / July 18, 2013

Many people are beginning to discover, and are intrigued by a new type of calcium supplement that is made entirely from plants. It is called AlgaeCal and it is the only plant calcium supplement on the market sourced from South American USDA Certified Organic marine algaes. The sales of this plant calcium are beginning to challenge traditional blue chip calcium products, like those made from calcium citrate. Why? Because the public is becoming aware that traditional calcium products (like calcium citrate) are made from rock. And once you find out that you can choose between eating plants versus rocks, which would YOU choose? Exactly! Let’s say, for some reason, you still chose rocks over plants… Would you reconsider if you knew that plant calcium is the only calcium clinically proven to increase your bone density? (1) Read on to learn…
