Lara Pizzorno is the author of “Your Bones: How You Can Prevent Osteoporosis and Have Strong Bones for Life – Naturally” and a member of the American Medical Writers Association with 29 years of experience specializing in bone health. 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 discusses the latest research confirming that calcium burns fat and makes us feel fuller, longer. Watch the video below (or read the transcript provided) and let us know what you think in the comments. 🙂   Hello, I’m Lara Pizzorno and the author of “Your Bones” and I’m here today to share some information with you from the…

Not Enough Minerals Essential Trace Minerals and Mineral Deficiency Explained by Dr Robert Thompson M.D. – Watch this video to find out why everyone needs to supplement in order to obtain the minerals our body needs! Video Transcription We have a health crisis that’s been determined by the Surgeon General of the United States with regards to our bones and the lack of minerals that exists. We’ve also known for over 70 years that the agricultural mineral content of our soil has been severely depleted and it’s gotten worse over the decades as we’ve over-fertilized, over-farmed, not rested the soil, and not subjected our land to natural flooding, which certainly redistributes minerals. This process and the fact that our foods are very rarely vine-ripened, which is a huge aspect with regards to mineral absorption; 80% of the minerals are absorbed…

Scientists at the Canada’s Intitut De Recherches Cliniques De Montreal have discovered a gene that they believe has controlling influence on bone mass of an individual thus proving critical to predisposing a person to osteoporosis. (1) The study was funded by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) and the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) and it’s findings were published in the October issue of Cell Metabolism. The research team was trying to find out about the mechanisms that were involved in bone formation and bone mineral dissolution causing bone breakdown. Bone formation was brought on by the production of bone cells called osteoblasts. Dissolution of bone known as resorption of bone was caused by the manufacture of bone cells called osteoclasts. These two types of bone cells work in tandem which reshapes the bones and…

AlgaeCal Osteoblast Study Researchers from the Harvard Medical School and University of Connecticut, collaborate on this landmark study which was accepted for publication in an upcoming issue of the peer-reviewed journal, Molecular and Cellular Biochemistry. In direct head-to-head tests, the scientists compared the effects of AlgaeCal with the two top-sellers, calcium carbonate and calcium citrate. Focused on the proliferation, mineralization and oxidative stress in cultured human osteoblast cells, the study results showed that AlgaeCal®, increased alkaline phosphatase activity 200 percent more effectively than calcium carbonate and 250 percent better than calcium citrate. In addition, AlgaeCal outperformed calcium carbonate and calcium citrate by 300 and 400 percent respectively on DNA synthesis – the ability of these osteoblasts to produce new bone building cells. In other words, the AlgaeCal calcium increased the number of human bone building cells by 400 percent more…

Make no bones about it. The human skeleton is remarkable. It constantly rebuilds itself throughout life. For bones to stay strong, you need a steady supply of regulating hormones and minerals. Upset that balance and you can get osteoporosis, a condition that causes brittle bones. So even a slight bump or a fall can cause a fracture. That’s why this video on bone health tips from Dr. Oz is one you need to watch! Here’s how to shore up your bones Get 1,200 miligrams (mg) of calcium and 1,000 international units (IU) of Vitamin D — ideally, through food and natural sunlight. But supplements can work, too. Also try fermented dairy like real yogurt. And do weight-bearing exercises. Those are the ones that cause you to push, pull or lift.   AlgaeCal Can Help Prevent and Treat Osteoporosis Strengthening your…
