Bone Builder Pack
AlgaeCal Plus and Strontium Boost are now available as convenient Bone Builder Packs, providing your bones with all the nutrients they need at an economical cost.
The most popular bundle is our six month bone builder pack, which includes 8 bottles of AlgaeCal Plus and 6 bottles of Strontium Boost. To increase bone density, the daily dose is 4 capsules of AlgaeCal Plus per day, just like in clinical studies. So you need 8 bottles for a six month supply.
Together, AlgaeCal Plus and Strontium Boost are GUARANTEED to increase your bone density in as little as six months! But remember, bone building is an ongoing process (on average, you continue to lose about 1% of your total bone mineral density every year!) requiring all the nutrients your bones need for a lifetime. So our best best possible pricing is with the 12 month Bone Builder Pack.
AlgaeCal Plus Overview
AlgaeCal marine algae supplies a full spectrum of calcium, magnesium, and over 70 trace minerals. Plus, clinical doses of vitamin D3, vitamin K2, boron, and additional magnesium have been added to the algae powder to make AlgaeCal Plus your complete, multi-nutrient approach to bone building.
AlgaeCal wild-harvested, plant-sourced calcium is derived from a South American marine algae called Lithothamnion superpositum (or Algas Calcareas as the locals call it). 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 it dissolves 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.
The “Plus” in AlgaeCal Plus
AlgaeCal is more than a plant-source, whole-food calcium supplement. It’s a multi-nutrient approach to your bone health that includes full, clinically supported doses of:
- Vitamin D3 and vitamin K2
- These two fat soluble vitamins work synergistically to support calcium absorption and distribution to your bones
- The Western diet tends to be magnesium deficient, so to make up for this shortfall AlgaeCal Plus provides you with the 2:1 calcium to magnesium ratio that is optimal for bone health.
- Several studies show boron playing a crucial role in bone health at 3 mg per day, which is the exact amount added
These additions make AlgaeCal Plus the most complete calcium supplement on the planet.
Strontium Boost Overview
Strontium Boost is composed of strontium citrate. The earth element strontium (naturally found in small amounts in your food) is combined with citrate (common in fruit) to bond the two into strontium citrate. Strontium Boost taken together with AlgaeCal Plus is guaranteed to increase your bone density in six months.
Strontium is a similar mineral to calcium in many respects and is naturally present in trace amounts with around 100 micrograms in every gram of your bone.
Various forms of strontium have been tested on bone strength since the 1950`s with positive bone building effect, so strontium citrate was added to AlgaeCal in some of the clinical research groups with excellent additive results. Depending on formulation, study participants increased bone density by 3 to 4%.
Research shows that strontium may overstate DXA scan bone results anywhere from 8.5%- 11.2%, maximum. However, the positive results in the strontium studies (including AlgaeCal studies) are still outright increases in bone density in older adults who should be losing bone. To put it in perspective, if you gained a modest 1% after taking strontium and you reduce that score by 10%, you still gained .9% of bone density.
Strontium drug studies have also shown reduced fracture risk independent of bone density readings. In other words, while strontium may affect your DXA results some, the important thing is that it improves your bones’ quality and lowers risk of fractures. And that’s the goal, isn’t it – healthier bones that are more resistant to fracture!
