In order for your skin to look fresh and attractive you need to make healthy lifestyle choices. Most people choose proven skin creams, SPF protection during sun exposure and drinking ample amounts of water as some of their top skin-protecting secrets. There are also masks, exfoliation…the list goes on. But calcium for healthy skin is the little known secret to keeping you looking vibrant at any age. It may come as a surprise, considering it’s not mainstream knowledge that calcium is just as crucial as say…Lancome for your skin. But calcium may be just as, if not more important than any of your typical skin-beauty regimens. Let me tell you why… Give Your Skin What it Needs to Regenerate The epidermis, which is the top outermost layer of your skin, suffers more direct and recurring encounters with the outside world…

This week I wanted to introduce you to Dr. Robert Heaney, M.D., who is an internationally recognized expert in the field of bone biology and calcium nutrition. He has published over 375 original papers and is a frequent editorial writer for major medical journals including JAMA, the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, Annals of Internal Medicine and Clinical Chemistry to name a few. Dr. Heaney has provided nearly 50 years of advancements in our understanding of osteoporosis, vitamin D and many other topics. Recently, I came across a blog post of his called, “Calcium: The Real Story” and had to share it with you. In this post Heaney crushes an age old calcium myth. The myth is that building bone is a long, gruelling process that could take not only months, but years when in fact research shows bone remodelling…

You probably already know that once you hit your mid-thirties, you lose about 1% of your bone mass each year. That’s why doctors recommend calcium supplements. But in four years of medical school, doctors only get about a single afternoon’s worth of training in nutrition. So it’s no wonder that when it comes to calcium supplements, most doctors don’t understand the nuances. Your doctor may have recommended you take calcium supplements, but chances are, he or she didn’t tell you these 3 vital pieces of information: 1. Most Calcium Supplements Only Slow Bone Loss – They Don’t Reverse It For over 70 years, researchers have known that calcium carbonate and calcium citrate, the two most common forms of supplemental calcium, slow down the bone loss that occurs as we age. That’s why doctors recommend it—because slow bone loss is better…

Picture a classroom full of students taking the same course. Also, imagine if you can that they all have perfect attendance during the year. What is the chance that they will get the exact same score, come exam time? Very low, right? And that is in large part because their ability to absorb information is very different from each other. You can make a similar comparison with calcium. Statistics show we Westerners get the most calcium in the world, but still suffer from the highest rates of osteoporosis. Why? In part because of an inability to fully absorb it. Dr. Elson Haas, writer of “Staying Healthy with Nutrition,” states that 30-80 % of dietary calcium is not absorbed by the body. Other study results found that pre- and menopausal women absorb anywhere from 17-58%. Calcium supplement makers, knowing this is…

Don’t bring sand to the beach. It’s wise advice we’ve all heard cautioning against our redundant tendencies. And the debate of what is redundant, or wasteful, overlaps into health issues. At AlgaeCal we get asked “I’m taking a multi – do I need to take vitamin D as well?”, or “I eat well, why do I need to supplement with capsules as well? Isn’t that like bringing sand to the beach?” The answer to both those questions rests simply upon – how much minerals/vitamins are you getting from say, your multi, or from the food you are eating? If you look into it you will likely find that the amounts you get fall below what our bodies need to thrive (as that’s generally what the statistics reveal for many people). If so, then supplement. Because being mineral/vitamin deficient will cost…
