My mother-in-law is 88 and during the last 6 months has sustained spontaneous vertebral thoracic and lumbar fractures to 5 vertebrae on separate occasions. Each has resulted in excruciating pains and great distress. Balancing the amount of analgesia she has needed has been very difficult because of the side effects such as over-sedation and reduced appetite. Her reduced motibility has lead to significant loss of muscles and her stature has gone from normal to scoliosis with greatly reduced height. The last episode required hospitalization to try and control her pain and nutrition.
Osteoporosis is a truly devastating condition and its prevention is not discussed widely enough.

Hi Clive,

We are so sorry to hear about everything your mother-in-law has been going through. We agree, it’s so important to talk about prevention, and spread awareness on how to better care for our bones.

Wishing you & your mother-in-law all the best.

The only options the specialist offered me to heal my osteoporosis were the drugs with terrible side effects. When I asked about a more natural approach, she said there wan’t one and abruptly ended the appointment.
Thankfully, I found AlgaeCal on FB and am trying it. I’m looking forward to my next bone density to see the improvement. Thank you, AlgaeCal for being there to give me and so many others hope!

Is taking too much calcium the reason I have a massive (2cm) kidney stone? My urologist says to stop taking it. My endocrinologist wants me to take more. I’m baffled!

Jenna AlgaeCal
Jenna AlgaeCal

Hi Vicki,

Good question. Traditional rock-based calcium supplements (like calcium carbonate or calcium citrate) have been known to cause kidney stones and could be a contributing factor – as they often contain an excess of calcium and lack additional nutrients.

AlgaeCal, on the other hand, is a wholefood supplement that does not cause kidney stones because it has a complex of naturally occurring minerals that help direct the calcium into bone rather than soft tissues like kidneys!

And ironically, restricting calcium intake does not prevent kidney stone formation. In fact, high dietary calcium intake decreases the risk of kidney stones.

You can learn more about kidney stone formation in this blog post! Hope this helps.

I’m in my 40s and was diagnosed 5 years ago with severe osteoporosis in my spine and femoral necks as a result of being left on proton pump inhibitor drugs for 20 years. Doc says I have a very high fracture risk and have the bones of an 80 year old. I have taken two prescription bone drugs and cannot take the side effects any longer. Hope to be able to start my bone builder pack soon and look forward to seeing positive results!

I have been diagnosed with osteoporosis for some years. When I fell 4 years ago and fractured my wrist the doctor showed me the X-ray which showed spongy bone. I begin taking Algaecal and the bone building regime. When I fell several weeks ago and was told I had an inversion fracture by my ankle the doctor said that my done looked very good. I consider that as a sign that the Algaecal and bone builder regime is working. Yay

I am 67. I have had osteopenia that moved to osteoporosis etc for about the last 10 years. I always refused the standard pharma recommendations of my doctor after reading of side effects. I started the Bone Booster series in January of 2017. Six months later the DEXA scan showed I had moved back to osteopenia! I have continued taking these and expect my next scan in a few months will show even more improvement. I’ve shared these results with several people who have begun to use the AlgaeCal and Strontium Booster. My doctor said to keep on keeping on! The DEXA scan technician was VERY enthusiastic about my results by the way!

Monica AlgaeCal

Wow, Barbara! Thank you so much for sharing, it’s really wonderful to hear about your improvement! Just like your doctor, I’d like to say keep on keeping on 🙂

I was recently diagnosed with osteoporosis in my spine and rather than go on the pharmaceuticals, decided to research more natural methods of treated it. Had run across AlgaeCal in my research and was considering trying it when it randomly came up in a conversation with a friend of mine who was diagnosed 5 years ago with osteoporosis. She’s been using AlgaeCal for 3-4 years now and showed me her dexa scans – no more osteoporosis, just some slight osteopenia. I ordered AlgaeCal immediately and am looking forward to my next bone scan!

In 2001 , at the age of 64, I was diagnosed with osteoporosis. A decade later it was again confirmed. I don’t remember when I started Algae Cal but it has been years. The last DEXA scan had my marker touching the line between osteopenia and normal – just below the normal line. My doctor was impressed.

I was on bioidentical hormone replacement for 5 years after menopause & quit cold turkey when my friend got breast cancer on the same hormones. My Dexa scan showed osteopenia in the spine & mild osteoporosis of the hip. 1 year later, after taking other calcium products with vitamin K, D, & C, BOTH measurements had worsened to osteoporosis! I just started Algaecal & I’m excited to take another scan in 6 months to see positive results.

My PCP showed me my most recent DEXA scan results last month, which to my surprise showed that my osteopenia, which I have had since having estrogen-positive breast cancer 17 years ago (I am now 70 years old) has moved into the osteoporosis range in one area, the neck of my left femur. My spine is still in the normal range. I was surprised that she recommended highly that I start taking a prescription bone medication, because she has always been one to explore holistic and naturopathic treatments first. I started doing extensive reading about it (I am an academic librarian) and interviewing everyone I know to find out what their status or experience has been with this disease and its treatments. During my interviews, I learned that a cousin has been taking AlgaeCal for a few years and has had great results. I also learned that the “rare” side effects of the pharmaceutical answer to osteoporosis are not nearly as rare as is claimed. After making up my mind about what to do, I ordered a year’s supply of the Bone Booster Pack, and began taking the supplements two weeks ago. I am now concentrating on strengthening my muscles, increasing my balance capability, cutting sugar – as much as possible – from my diet, and focusing on good health in general. I am confident that I will see good results from AlgaeCal, and I know I made the right decision. I can “feel it in my bones” already!

I was diagnosed with osteoporosis and osteopenia last fall. It was devastating news for me. I have walked 4 miles every morning for over 20 yrs, taken more calcium than prescribed, just to prevent it. I am recovering from mercury poisoning, which depleted all the calcium from my bones, as well as causing numerous health issues. I started taking Algaecal, but cannot tolerate the fermentation in Algaecal Plus. I am taking Algaecal Basic along with the Strontium, hoping my next scan will show an improvement. Thank you for all your information. Keep up the good work.

I had ankle replacement surgery 3 weeks ago. Surgeon informed me that he could see that I had osteoporosis. My husband happened across a facebook ad for Algaecal and thought I should give it a try. Lots of good reviews. I had been taking calcium supplements for a number of years–but evidently they have not been helping much. Hoping Algaecal will help in bone restoration and healing.

in the video it said tennis was a good safe and valuable one to help with osteoporosis

is there anything that I should be wary of when playing?

is osteoporosis a common cause for pains in the back?

Jenna AlgaeCal
Jenna AlgaeCal

Hi Tom,

While tennis is a great exercise for strengthening our bones because it is weight-bearing, it’s definitely best to check with your doctor on what exercises should be included (or not) in your bone health regimen!

Osteoporosis is often called the silent disease because its symptoms can be very subtle. However, bone pain is one of the symptoms. You can click here for more signs that can indicate bone loss.

Hope that helps!

Jenna AlgaeCal
Jenna AlgaeCal

Hi Betty,

Good question. AlgaeCal does provide some of our raw material for Garden of Life to use in their own formulation. Although their formulation will have a similar makeup, including things like vitamin D3 and K2 along with their own blends of fruit and vegetable extracts; AlgaeCal’s proprietary blend of vitamins and minerals combined with our unique algae, make AlgaeCal the only calcium supplement on the market that has been proven time and time again to show a measured increase in bone density.

These studies have all been peer-reviewed and published in respected journals, and you can find them all here. In contrast, other calciums may simply slow down the rate of bone density loss. AlgaeCal is also the only calcium supplement guaranteed to increase bone density. There is more reading on our guarantees here.

If you would like more information, please don’t hesitate to call our Bone Health Consultants at 1-800-820-0184 or email [email protected] 🙂

I am 62 and was diagnosed with osteopenia and mild osteoporosis about a year ago. I did not like the side effects of the medications my doctor offered and told him I had researched another option and ordered algaecal and strontium. He told me at the end of the visit that he would have done the same thing if he were me. So, I am hoping for an improved DEXA score this summer, not just for me, but also for this doctor, so he can offer his osteoporosis patients another option!

I was diagnosed with osteoporosis. At the same time I found out I also have Eosinophilic Esophagitis which makes the esophagus stiff, making it hard swallowing. Because pills stay in my esophagus longer than normal, I cannot take prescription bone drugs as they will cause esophageal cancer so I researched and found AlgaeCal. I am very impressed with all the studies, reviews and literature provided by AlgaeCal & Dean Neuls. I am currently on my 6th month of taking AlgaeCal & Strontium. I just ordered my second 6 month bone builder pack. I plan on getting another DEXA scan in a few months and look forward to seeing great results.
I know I should have asked sooner but I have one question. Will AlgaeCal Plus or Strontium Boost cause any issues to my esophagus?

I want to try this so so bad! I am only 32 but have had hypothalamic amenorrhea for over ten years. I know that the low estrogen from not having a period could mean bone issues. I have tried to get a DXA to find out but no one will order it since I am not 50. I imagine that is an insurance thing. I would love to take this while I am waiting to get a period back.

Hi Sheena,

Thank you for taking the time to share, we’re sorry to hear you’re unable to get a DXA scan – this is likely based on insurance coverage like you said. In the meantime, the vitamins and minerals would definitely help to provide your bones with the essential nutrients they need to be replenished!

I have been on AlgaeCal Plus and Strontium Boost for about a year and a half and finally this year in June I will be able to get my next DXA scan. (My insurance will only cover a scan every two years.) I am looking forward to finding out how much I have improved in the past two years. My original scan showed a T-score of -2.9 in the spine and -4.9 in my left wrist. (I’m only 54 but at age 36 I had both hips replaced due to a disease called osteonecrosis, caused by taking corticosteroids for lupus.) Now I also have hyperparathyroidism which has accelerated the bone loss and given me kidney stones to boot. Unfortunately I still have to take corticosteroids for the lupus but I try to take as small a dose as possible for the shortest time as possible. Thank you for making such a wonderful product!

I found out I had osteoporosis the hard way…3 falls within 11 months, almost 2 years being bedridden, and 8 years in a wheelchair….in my 40’s. My life completely changed, and not for the better.

I have been reading about AlgaeCal and really would love to begin taking it but I need to budget for it before I can start. My doctor gave me a prescription for Adoral (I think that’s the way to spell it) but I don’t like taking medication/chemicals. So I hope to begin soon and then share my improved numbers!

Are there any drug interactions with the drugs used for endocrine therapy for breast cancer – GnRH drugs to suppress ovarian function and aromatase inhibitors?

Jenna AlgaeCal
Jenna AlgaeCal

Good question, Joscelyn. We have customers taking similar medications who see wonderful results with AlgaeCal! With any medication, however, it’s important to take it separately from AlgaeCal to avoid any potential absorption interactions. Please feel free to contact our Bone Health Consultants at 1-800-820-0184 for more information! We also suggest double checking with your doctor that AlgaeCal is right for you 🙂

I was diagnosed with osteoporosis eight years ago. My doctor prescribed a prescription bone medication and told me that the best thing he could tell me to do was to walk. I took his advice and began walking at least one mile per day. About 18 months ago I had another bone density scan — no osteoporosis but a little osteopenia. Needless to say, I still walk at least a mile every day!

Jenna AlgaeCal

Keep up the great work, Patty! So glad walking has made a difference for you. 🙂

All my t scores are scary I fear to write them down as I like to keep my thoughts up high above the negative and focus on the positive outcomes like “Health is Normal” for all of us.
I have only been on Algae Cal just short of 6months and my bone scan is due later in the year. I would love to add Strontium Boost to my bone strength regime but have financial constraints being a pensioner. I remember the days when I first commenced taking AlgaeCal I could feel it doing me good all the way round my body as my bones were so starved of the right nutrient’s…..I look forward to my next scan so I can say it’s good news week.
Susanne.

My sister told me about AlgaeCal and I started taking it after my doctor wanted to start me on one of the high powered twice a year injectable drugs. After I researched it, I didn’t want to put that in my body so I decided to give AlgaeCal a try and I’m so glad I did. My bone density has improved since I began taking it. 🙂

I have been wanting to try the Algaecal product, but take Tamoxifen ( I was diagnosed with breast cancer 6 years ago) and also use Kenalog ointment on psoriasis. It covers a large part of my body and don’t know how much I absorb. Would Algaecal be safe for me to try?

I’ve been using AlgaeCal Plus & Strontium for nine years with great success.
I’ve been experiencing musclar pain due to inflammation or?? I’ve had hips, knees, and spine xrayed. Very minimal degeneration, it’s all soft tissue discomfort. Will the Triple Power help reduce the discomfort?

Monica
Monica

Hi Jean,
Wonderful to hear of your success with AlgaeCal!
Yes, Triple Power is an anti-inflammatory with clinical doses of omega 3 fatty acids, astaxanthin and turmeric. These nutrients work together synergistically to combat inflammation in the body, and therefore, reduce discomfort. Here’s some additional information: https://www.algaecal.com/product/triple-omega3-fish-oil/ but please let me know if you have further questions.

I’m taking AlgaeCal and Strontium now after being diagnosed with osteoporosis but am still concerned about coronary calcium buildup. My last coronary calcium test was around 25 so I do have some buildup. My cardiologist says the jury is still out on whether taking calcium can contribute to this problem.

Monica
Monica

Hi Barbara,
AlgaeCal Plus contains vitamin K2, which directs calcium straight to your bones and keeps them out of arteries. AlgaeCal has had three human clinical trials conducted, the last was 7 years long – with no adverse side effects from participants, which includes heart issues.

I’m going to quote Lara Pizzorno, our Bone Health Expert as she replied to a similar concern recently…

“We’ve known for more than 20 years now that one of the proteins that vitamin K2 activates, called matrix Gla protein, not only prevents calcium from depositing in the vasculature, but actually removes calcium deposits from our blood vessels (and other soft tissues, like our kidneys, breasts and brain).

The first human evidence for a link between nutritional vitamin K status and vascular health was provided by the Rotterdam study, whose results were published in 2004.
Geleijnse JM, Vermeer C, Grobbee DE, Schurgers LJ, et al. Dietary intake of menaquinone is associated with a reduced risk of coronary heart disease: the Rotterdam Study. J Nutr. 2004 Nov;134(11):3100-5. PMID: 15514282

In this study, dietary intake of phylloquinone (vitamin K1) and menaquinone (vitamin K2) was analyzed in relation to risk of aortic calcification and coronary heart disease (CHD) in 4,807 elderly subjects recruited from the general population. Risk of incident CHD, all-cause mortality, and vascular pathology (aortic calcification) was found to be inversely related to intake of vitamin K2 (i.e., greater K2 intake resulted in significantly lower risk), but no such benefits were detected with respect to different levels of vitamin K1 intake. This is because K1, while beneficial for our bones because it lowers inflammation (and chronic inflammation is a key underlying cause of excessive osteoclast activation and bone loss), does not activate the vitamin K-dependent proteins, osteocalcin, which pulls calcium into bone, and matrix Gla protein, which prevents calcium from depositing in soft tissues and removes calcium that has deposited in the vasculature.

Since the Rotterdam study, a number of additional studies have shown that insufficient intake of vitamin K2 is associated with increased risk of cardiovascular calcification, whereas higher intake of vitamin K2 exerts cardiovascular protection. Here are just a few of these papers (perhaps you might want to share these with your doctor since K2 is an extremely safe, effective and inexpensive treatment to prevent and reverse arterial calcification that he or she should know about):

Juanola-Falgarona M, Salas-Salvadó J, et al. Dietary intake of vitamin K is inversely associated with mortality risk. J Nutr. 2014 May;144(5):743-50. doi: 10.3945/jn.113.187740. Epub 2014 Mar 19. Erratum in: J Nutr. 2016 Mar;146(3):653. PMID: 24647393
Vissers LE, Dalmeijer GW, Boer JM, et al. Intake of dietary phylloquinone and menaquinones and risk of stroke. J Am Heart Assoc. 2013 Dec 10;2(6):e000455. doi: 10.1161/JAHA.113.000455. PMID: 24326161
Vissers LE, Dalmeijer GW, Boer JM, et al. The relationship between vitamin K and peripheral arterial disease. Atherosclerosis. 2016 Sep;252:15-20. doi: 10.1016/j.atherosclerosis.2016.07.915. Epub 2016 Jul 25.
PMID: 27494446
Shea MK, Holden RM. Vitamin K status and vascular calcification: evidence from observational and clinical studies. Adv Nutr. 2012 Mar 1;3(2):158-65. doi: 10.3945/an.111.001644. PMID: 22516723
Gast GC, de Roos NM, Sluijs I, et al. A high menaquinone intake reduces the incidence of coronary heart disease. Nutr Metab Cardiovasc Dis. 2009 Sep;19(7):504-10. doi: 10.1016/j.numecd.2008.10.004. Epub 2009 Jan 28. PMID: 19179058

Vitamin K2 has been also been studied in postmenopausal women with osteoporosis and found to help prevent excessive bone loss, and in patients with chronic kidney disease, a condition that results in arterial calcification. The most recently published study looking into the effects of K2 on arterial calcification in patients with chronic kidney disease was a small, pilot trial of 42 subjects with CKD stage 3-5 who were randomized into two treatment arms: one group receiving 400 iu of vitamin D3 only and a second group receiving 400 IU of D3 plus 90 mcg of K2 daily for 270 days. Progression of atherosclerosis was assessed by measurement of the intima-media thickness of the common carotid artery and was significantly lower in patients treated with both D3 and MK-7. Several additional prospective, interventional studies are now in process that will further investigate vitamin K2’s cardiovascular benefits.
Brandenburg VM, Schurgers LJ, Kaesler N, et al. Prevention of vasculopathy by vitamin K supplementation: can we turn fiction into fact? Atherosclerosis. 2015 May;240(1):10-6. doi: 10.1016/j.atherosclerosis.2015.02.040. Epub 2015 Feb 24. PMID: 25744701

One of these is focusing specifically on coronary arterial calcification — a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial: “The Effects of Vitamin K-2 Supplementation on the Progression of Coronary Artery Calcification.” This study is being conducted from Maastricht, The Netherlands (ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier: NCT01002157 and is investigating daily supplementation with 360 mcg Vitamin K-2 (MK7) in patients with established coronary artery calcification (CAC). The study is investigating whether MK-7 supplementation results in a decreased progression-rate of CAC after 24 months of follow-up. I am following this research and will be reporting the results when each of these studies is published.

Hope this helps,
Lara”

I appreciate your product but I take ‘Vitamin Code Raw Calcium’ formulated by Garden of Life not just because they use Algae Cal in their supplement but also, it does not contain Magnesium Stearate, and that is very important to me.

My husband, Steve, (59) has advanced stage osteoporosis (& fibromyalgia and scoliosis) …He is using Jarrows Bone supplement. He is in a lot of physical pain due to fractures in his spine, pulled muscles/ tendons. Unable to work since 2000…was taking opiates…now smoking medical marijuana…he feels his bones shifting/ moving & is very concerned. Doctors just tell him to ice & use Ibuprofen. Your calcium product will really work?? This is my hope. I’m new to your website. At work need to go for now. Thank you.

Hi Celine,
AlgaeCal Plus and Strontium Boost will absolutely help as it provides the vitamins and minerals needed for optimal bone health. It’s also been clinically proven to increase bone density. Our Triple Power Omega 3 Fish Oil can also help manage pain and reduce inflammation at the source. We’ve actually had customers with scoliosis and fibromyalgia find relief. You can see one of those stories here: https://www.algaecal.com/success-stories/?testimonial=parts-body-can-say-nearly-100-pain-free-now

Two years ago i decided to “try” a bone builder pack because I had been diagnosed with osteopenia. I knew that I did not want to take Pharmaceuticals to overcome the problem so I searched and found this product period because of the money back guarantee I was immediately on board. One year later when I went in for my next bone scan the technician reading my results was surprised that I had an increase of over 8% in my bone density. I will never stop taking these products. They are worth every penny!

Having been recently diagnosed with osteopenia/osteoarthritis, I would love to try this combination, but learned that it creates negative side effects for users of levythyroxine. Please advise and thanks!

Hi D.H.,
Thyroid medications interact with calcium, yes, but that shouldn’t deter you from taking AlgaeCal Plus. You can simply just take your thyroid medication 4 hours apart from calcium-containing foods or supplements. Same with Strontium Boost, if you plan to take that as well. Here’s a short video by Lara Pizzorno, our Bone Health Expert, who discusses this: https://www.algaecal.com/expert-insights/video-lara-pizzorno-thyroid-medication-strontium/

Hello,
I’m 57 recently diagnosed with osteoporosis. DEXA scan -3.8 lumbar. I just started taking both AlgaeCal and StrontiumBoost. Walking 30 minutes several times a week, and really trying to eat right. I have Lara’s book, which is great. I would highly recommend it. My concern is how much improvement (if any) can I expect with next years DEXA scan. Assuming I continue with the supplements and exercise. ~thank you,

Monica
Monica

Hi Terri,
Sounds like you are on the right track to reclaiming your bone health. Lara’s book is super valuable and we recommend everyone read it, too!

We guarantee you will increase your bone density with AlgaeCal Plus and Strontium Boost. How much, however, varies among each individual as each situation is different. That is one thing we can’t predict, unfortunately.

DEXTA scan figures are based on a 30yr old. At 61, I was diagnosed with osteoporosis after a wrist fracture. The Consultant stated that if I didn’t accept her findings and failed to take injections of these chemical drugs, I would be in a wheelchair in ten years. GP also tried to push these drugs on me. A Harley street nutritionist also suggested I take these drugs. Information in UK is so sadly lacking.

I found out the painful way that too much Vitamin D can cause kidney stones.
Two years ago I had osteoporosis in three of the places they scanned and osteopenia in several other locations. After only 6 months on AlgaeCal and strontium I only have osteoporosis in one location and all the osteopenia numbers have improved. I take thyroid med so I was stoked to see my latest scan after only 6 months! I have high hopes for my next scan in two years.

Monica
