Calcium / Nutrition / Research / January 19, 2015

This week I wanted to speak to you about a bit of a conundrum. You see, the best phone calls we receive each week are calls from customers telling us how happy they are to have increased their bone density and be back to ‘normal’ bone density. Of course the flip side of that (the conundrum I just mentioned) is when we find out that people who have achieved such incredible results stop taking AlgaeCal! When this happens, it actually pains me to think that those customers are heading right back down the slippery slope of inevitable bone loss. Let me tell you why… Why You Should Always Take Your Calcium  A study carried out by New Zealand’s University of Auckland examined data from 322 healthy men to find out whether the proven positive effects on bone mineral density (BMD)…

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.
