Overview

AlgaeCal marine algae supplies a full spectrum of calcium, magnesium, and over 70 trace minerals. 1000 IU of vitamin D3 has been added to the algae powder to make AlgaeCal Basic an excellent bone maintenance support.

AlgaeCal wild-harvested, plant-sourced calcium is derived from a South American marine algae called algas calcareas. The entire kiwi-fruit size algae ball is hand harvested, sun dried, then milled into a powder. There is no extraction process or additives used – just pure whole food.

Pre-Digested Calcium is Body-friendly

The AlgaeCal plant draws calcium and 70 other minerals from sea water and pre-digests it for you much like a carrot or potato root breaks down the in-edible rock minerals in soil converting them into a useable form your body recognizes as food. Most traditional calcium supplements are made from pulverized limestone or marble.

AlgaeCal plant-digested calcium is so body-friendly that 97% of AlgaeCal’s calcium goes into solution in 30 minutes using USP standard tests simulating stomach conditions – proving it is very bio-accessible.

Algas Calcareas is Certified Organic and Kosher

Organic certification attests to both the purity, and to the sustainability of this algae. A third party organization called IBD Certificacoes has certified that the harvest area is free of pollutants and that the harvest levels are allowing this resource to regenerate. IBD is held responsible by the USDA and IFOAM (International Federation of Organic Agriculture Movements) ensuring that AlgaeCal is the highest quality, wild-harvested ingredient. See Organic Certification for Algas Calcareas.

Algas Calcareas is kosher certified through Natural Food Certifiers. See Kosher Certification.

Minerals are the Key

Did you know that clinical studies demonstrate trace minerals are important for bone growth in addition to calcium and magnesium? Patent pending AlgaeCal is more than a plant-source, whole-food calcium supplement. AlgaeCal also contains high levels of natural magnesium, plus more than 70 trace minerals, and phyto-nutrients. You get a full spectrum of minerals and plant nutrients working for you instead of one or two elements like most calcium supplements provide.

AlgaeCal Plant Calcium has 1000 IU per day of vitamin D3 added.

Supplement Facts

Directions

Take AlgaeCal Basic with your meals to optimize absorption. Ideally split the dose taking one or two caps with breakfast and one or two caps with your evening meal.

How Much Calcium Do You Really Need Each Day?

The daily target is 1200 mg per day of calcium intake from food and supplements for low bone density. An average person who consumes dairy products gets 500 – 700 mg of calcium from daily diet, so you would need to supplement 500 – 700 mg of calcium. Each AlgaeCal Plant Calcium capsule contains 250 mg of calcium. So 2 to 3 capsules of AlgaeCal Basic = 500 to 750 mg calcium. The clinical studies resulting in modest bone density increases were based on participants taking 3 capsules per day.

Drug Interactions

Calcium supplements, including AlgaeCal, should not be taken at the same time throughout the day as(at least 3 hours apart):

  • quinolone antibiotics
  • tetracycline antibiotics
  • bisphosphonate bone drugs
  • some heart medications
  • thyroid medications such as levothyroxine
  • water pills
  • Iron supplements
  • Strontium supplements

This drug interaction information is just a brief overview. Always check with your doctor for details about possible interactions between AlgaeCal products and your medications. In some cases calcium reduces the effectiveness or required dose for certain medications. Often the solution is to take calcium and the medication at a different time of the day. Your doctor should be consulted if you have any questions whatsoever.
