Following this daily routine will make sure that everything is spaced out correctly.

  • AlgaeCal Plus and AlgaeCal Basic should be taken with food.
  • Strontium Boost and AlgaeCal Plus/Basic should be taken 2-3 hours apart to ensure that they do not compete for absorption.
  • Strontium Boost should also be taken 2-3 hours apart from consuming calcium-rich foods. Most customers take it right before bed.
  • We also recommend taking Triple Power with food because some customers feel uncomfortable taking it on an empty stomach due to the richness of the omega 3 fatty acids.

Many of our customers enjoy taking it with breakfast because of the natural mango flavor that pairs well with tropical fruits and yogurt.

Let us know if hope you have found this helpful. Don’t forget to share, like and comment 🙂

I’ve been using Strontium Plus and AlgeaCal Plus for a couple of years (with great success according to my DEXT scans). But, I’ve been taking one Strontium Plus in the morning upon rising and one at bedtime. The recommendation above is to take it before bed. Is there a problem taking one in the morning and and one at bedtime instead of just at bedtime?


Hi Patricia,

You can take both capsules of Strontium Boost at the same time to make it easier. We do recommend right before bed because when people wake-up they usually have breakfast soon after. Strontium should not be taken within 2-3 hours of calcium-containing foods so it makes it easier to take it at night, a few hours after dinner and before bed to avoid any absorption issues. But, if you take it in the morning and don’t eat 2-3 hours after taking it, then you can continue your routine!

This information is very helpful and important.
Having the photo behind the important information is very distracting. is there a way to send it again without the picture of the woman.


Hi Kathy,

Thanks for the feedback! I just sent you a new version without the picture in the back via email 🙂

I’ve always taken my Strontium Boost about halfway between breakfast and dinner, leaving 3-4 hours either direction. Is there any reason bedtime would be better?


Hi Ellen,

As long as you are taking Strontium Boost 2-3 hours apart from meals, it is fine. Most people find it easier to take it right before bed, but if your routine works, then that is great!

My husband and I take Strontium at lunch time to keep it away from the Algaecal Plus but as we have not been on it for long I don’t know if this is working. As we are retired we usually have meat, salad and potatoes for lunch so I didn’t think it was a problem as I don’t think there is any calcium in this type of meal. Should we change to before bed?


Hi Barbara,

Taking Strontium Boost at bed will definitely yield the best result. In a salad depending on the portion and type of veggies, there can be between 50 to 100mg or even more of calcium. Those would occupy the receptors strontium needs in order to be absorbed and may cause some Strontium Boost to be flushed out from your system. Ideally, Strontium Boost should not be taken with a meal.

I am taking Vegan EPA+DHA with10000IU Vit. D by Spectrum with food. Will that interfere with my AlgaeCal Plus at all?


Hi Dhatreyi,

These will not interfere with AlgaeCal Plus 🙂

Liz Williams

How do AlgaeCal Plus and Strontium Boost fit in with my Levothyroxine dose? Currently I take the AlgaeCal with breakfast and dinner, the levothyroxine at bedtime and the strontium on waking, which is several hours before breakfast.


Hi Liz,
Usually, levothyroxine is taken first thing in the morning and so we would recommend AlgaeCal Plus at lunch and dinner (4 hours apart to prevent any possible interaction) and Strontium Boost at bed time.

But your current schedule works as well!

Thank you for that information
I usually have wholemeal toast for breakfast
I have read it’s not good to take calcium supplement for two hours after whole grain foods
So do you think this applys to me algaecal
It would be so helpful to know
Kind regards


Hi Eleanor,

It’s true that you should avoid eating foods with phytic acid and oxalic acid when taking AlgaeCal or other supplements. Wheat and whole grains tend to be high in these acids, but don’t affect calcium absorption as much as other foods such as spinach, beans, nuts, and seeds. [] For extra precaution you could space this out.

I take my Algaecal plus with my breakfast ,smoothie which consists of seeds, black sesame ,hemp,sunflower ,fruits and Veg plus almond milk. What do you suggest I should have for breakfast .


Hi Brittha,

Sounds like a nutrient-packed breakfast! You could add some greens or healthy fats like avocado as well :). Keep it up!

Your printable dose information doesn’t specify what size of spoonful????


Hi Joy,

Sorry about that – it’s a tablespoon for Triple Power.

Vicki Kaufman

I measure out one tablespoon of Triple Power each day. My bottle lasts about 18 days, not 28 as stated on the label. Is my measuring spoon too big? Am I taking too much?


Hi Vicki,
Yes, it seems like you’ve been taking more than one tablespoon per day. It should be equivalent to 15g per day, which will give you 28 days of Triple Power.

I cannot swallow pills. Is it okay to mix AlgaeCal in milk and drink it? I do not know if it is good to take it with milk or if water would be better… Thanks


Hi Linda,
You can absolutely pull apart the capsules and put the powder in milk or juice. We also recommend apple sauce or yogurt as alternatives too, depending on your tastes.

Paulette M BEYRIES

since i started to take algaeCal + strontium (2 algaecal w/BRF and 2 w/dinner – 2 strontium w/lunch + 1 probiotic before bed time) i feel blooded and always thursty specialy when i wake up, i also have headaches.
do you think it has anything to do with it or should i take it at different time ?
Thanks for your help


Hi Paulette,

Although uncommon, increased thirst after probiotic supplementation has been reported as a side effect. Switching to a different probiotic, supplementing with a lower dose or discontinuing altogether are options – but it is best to discuss this with your doctor.
