And she said, the doctor wants to put you on medicine because you have osteoporosis. I said, yes I still do have osteoporosis, but why would she want to put me on medicine if what I’m taking is working? She was a little disgruntled with me because I was countering what the doctor said, and she said that the doctor still wanted to see me, so I said did you guys not look at the bone test to see that I increased 7.5%? And they hadn’t, they had just looked at the bottom line which just said osteoporosis.</p> <p>My name in Lori Yob, I live in Spokane Washington. I went to the health fair, and they had the ankle scan there and I just took it because they had it. At the time I had no history of osteoporosis. The results on the ankle scan showed osteopenia, it was scary when I first got the results and I decided I better go see my doctor and get a follow up bone density and it showed osteopenia in my spine, my hip was normal, but my spine showed osteopenia. It was scary, I had never been in a situation like that before and I was concerned for my bone health at that time. Mine showed -2.3, it was getting down to where I would be concerned about osteoporosis. I was taking another product that had calcium, vitamin D, I took that for 2 more years before I had another bone test and when I had that test everything stabilized it hadn’t gotten any worse, it hadn’t gotten any better, it pretty much stayed the same. I didn’t have another bone density for 3 more years. When I had that bone density test I got a call from the doctors office that it had turned to osteoporosis in my spine, that was when I became really concerned,. It was a -3 which is into osteoporosis, not even on the borderline, it’s below that. So I was pretty scared at that point and wanted something that would work that would help build my bone back up. The things I was afraid of were limited activity, I was afraid I wouldn’t be able to do the things I like to do, we jog, we bike ride, we do a lot of physical activities. We swim and water ski at the lake. We snow ski, cross country ski, there’s a lot of physical activity I love to do.</p> <p>I was really afraid of a fracture in my lumbar spine which would’ve been awful, terrible, painful and limiting to my lifestyle. I’ve seen other people do it, I’m a nurse, I work in a hospital and I’ve seen other people with osteoporosis that have had bone fractures in their back and it’s devastating. It’s a terribly painful way to live. I see patients that have undergone different procedures in the hospital to put bone cement in those fractures to seal them up so that they weren’t hurting so bad. I’ve seen patients that have been bed ridden because of the fractures and not able to get around. I think that immobility is what really caused me to want to do something. My husband was also afraid for me and as I explained it to him in medical terms he was really concerned. My sister in law who is a naturopath told me, I actually contacted her because I knew she completed a course and maybe she would know a supplement I could take that could help. She told me about AlgaeCal. She told me that she had seen that, she knew that it had clinical studies that went with it. So I started researching it at that point. I looked at the clinical studies online and read about them and that impressed me the most being from a medical background. It impressed me that they had done clinical studies and patients had actually tried the product and seen a difference. So as I researched AlgaeCal I was skeptical, there’s a lot of other supplements out there that have some of the same kinds of claims, although they don’t have clinical studies to back it up. I’ve been taking AlgaeCal since 2008 when I was first diagnosed with osteoporosis.</p> <p>So I waited almost a year and a half until I went to the doctor and had another bone strength test. I came home from work that night and I went to the mailbox and I had the results of the test in my mail that had been sent to me and it showed a 7.5% increase in my spine! The next year I increased 9.7% in my lumbar spine. We’ve had wonderful results, I know that at the beginning of all this I had aching in my spine and now I have none of that and I feel strong and I’m doing things that I love to do and it’s working. I’m only going to keep going up because Im not going to quit taking the product. It’s worked, it’s shown results, and I do feel strong and I’m seeing that it’s going to be something that i’ll be living with the rets of my life. Even if I get into the normal range I wont quit taking the product because I want to maintain that bone health. It’s given me peace of mind that the bone is going back to where it needs to be. I’m most happy about being able to continue in the activities I love doing. I love exercising, I love running, and biking, and playing with my little grand daughter and I’m going to be able to do those kind of things because my bone is getting stronger. I wish that more people knew about it, and I’m doing my best to tell people what I know and how it’s helped me. I wish that it was more widespread for people to hear, especially the clinical trials, I know that’s what made the difference for me. I’m thankful that it’s given me my life back because I can keep doing the things I love to do.</p> <div class="disclaimer success-stories-disclaimer text-success"> <p>Increased bone density results are consistent with 3 published studies.

I’m a 55 year old wife, mother of three, grandmother of three, and a proud dog owner. This is my personal story. March 11th, 2012, I was rear ended, at a high rate of speed. My car was completely totaled. I sustained a whiplash, a concussion, soft tissue damage, bruised liver, and L4, L5, and S1 herniation. I was in physical therapy for months, massage therapy for months, I had steroid injections. I was taking steroids. I was on anti-inflammatories – the entire protocol.</p> <p>Months went by and the pain was not subsiding. I was told that if it didn’t subside by the third round of steroid injections that I would probably end up having to have spinal surgery. Well, in October of 2015, I had a fall. With that fall, I ruptured the disk that got injured during that car accident.</p> <p>So, needless to say, 2015, I had my first lumbar spinal surgery. After the spinal surgery, I was very dedicated to doing everything that I was told by my surgeon, which was to walk, to rest, to ice, to take the medications, go back in for steroid shots if need my. Also, engage in physical therapy. I did all those things again.</p> <p>Nothing worked. So needless to say, months later I go back in and Im telling my doctor that I’m still in excruciating pain. So we did more tests, and we found out that the surgery had failed. Where the screws were into my spine. They were now wobbly, the bone did not grow back. I also learned that I had a degenerative bone disease that came from my mother’s side of the family, and I was blessed with it.</p> <p>So, in June, 2016 I went back in for my second lumbar spinal surgery where spaces were put in to decompress some of the vertebrates, to take some of the pressure off of the nerves. After that, I started losing hope because I was back to walking, back to physical therapy, back In hydrotherapy where I was water walking, back to doing slow weights – easy weights, eating right – eating all the calcium-rich fortifying foods, all the things that I thought would help my bones get stronger. Because I was devastated to learn that I had a degenerative bone disorder, on top of two spinal surgeries.</p> <p>So at my age, once you do a mammogram, you can also do a bone density test, and I was brave, and did the bone density test. During that time, I had learned that my neck T-Score was a -2.3, my lumbar spine at L3 was a -2.2. I was pretty bummed, but determined to find something that could help increase my bone density. There had to be something out there!</p> <p>So after searching the web and social media I stumbled across this product called AlgaeCal Plus. I read all the literature that I could find on it. I watched the tutorials, I read blogs, I read the research, and then another day when I’m sitting there, scrolling through the TV channels, I see on Dr. Oz that they advertise this AlgaeCal Plus, and how it increased bone mineral density.</p> <p>So I thought “well, if it’s on Dr. Oz, and it’s on social media, there’s gotta be something to it right?”. So i took the chance. I ordered AlgaeCal Plus with Strontium Boost. My order arrived on April 28th, 2017, and I immediately started taking it. I was so excited and I had so much hope that I couldn’t wait until 7 months came to have another bone density test to see if I had any improvement. My goal was just to stop. Just to stop the bone loss. So on November 16th, 2017 I went in for another DEXA scan. And my doctor herself came out to the waiting room, and got me to give me my results. She came in, got me, went back, didn’t even have the door closed when she’s telling me “you’ve got to scan your report and send it to AlgaeCal because you have 11.1% bone mineral density increase. 11.1%! That’s greater than my anticipation.</p> <p>My hope ballooned! My choice of taking AlgaeCal Plus, with Strontium Boost paid off, and it’s paying off even more because now my doctor, who says “scan your report, send it to AlgaeCal, get me the information on AlgaeCal Plus, tell all your friends about AlgaeCal Plus, go on social media! Do what you have to do, but there’s something to this product”.</p> <p>So I’m here to tell you that November 16th, I got my results back, and from April, when my neck was a -2.3, it is now a -1.9, and at L3 when it was a -2.2, it is now a -0.5. So AlgaeCal team, AlgaeCal researchers. Thank you! Thank you for coming up with such an incredible product that has given me back my life, and given me back hope. I suffer with pain, but it’s not because of the bone, it’s because my bones don’t like the hardware, and I better sign off now because my dog decides that he needs to go outside! So all I can say is good luck everyone! Try AlgaeCal Plus, give it a try and I too hope that you have greater bone mineral density than I have! Have a great day, take care from sunny Florida.

Approximately 10 years ago, I was diagnosed with very poor, low bone density after breaking my foot and my ribs on a different occasion.</span></p> <p class="p1"><span class="s1">Immediately my doctors wanted to put me on a prescription medication drug. However, I was not comfortable with the side effects. So, I started taking a calcium supplement, and I started walking daily on the treadmill.</span></p> <p class="p1"><span class="s1">After approximately a year, I ended up with a kidney stone, which was a very painful and unpleasant experience.</span></p> <p class="p1"><span class="s1">I did go for a DEXA scan only to learn that my bones had gotten worse.

I ordered my AlgaeCal. I continued to walk daily on the treadmill. I started eating a very rich calcium diet, and I also started lifting weights.</span></p> <p class="p1"><span class="s1">I did some research and learned about another supplement to add to my daily routine, and it was Strontium Boost. At this point my doctors still did not want me to go the natural route. They insisted I take a prescription drug. I still didn’t feel comfortable, and I had to do what felt right for me.</span></p> <p class="p1"><span class="s1">Well, to make a long story short, what actually happened was, I went for another bone density scan, and I am so pleased to report that <strong>my bone density increased by 8%!</strong></span></p> <p class="p1"><span class="s1">So, taking my AlgaeCal Plus, taking the Strontium Boost, walking daily on the treadmill, eating a calcium rich diet, and lifting weights was starting to become successful for me.</span></p> <p class="p1"><span class="s1">My doctor was so impressed with the results, he said “do exactly what you’re doing! Don’t stop, it’s working.” So I wanted to share my story with you in hopes that you could also stop taking the prescription drug, and do a natural routine to better health and better bone density.

I’m 55 years old and I’m beyond thrilled about just learning of some very impressive results that I’ve received on my bone density. And this is after using AlgaeCal for a year. So I’ve benefited so much from testimonials that I read and listened to on the website a year and a half ago so I hope this is helpful for you.</p> <p>At age 47 I discovered that I had moderately poor bone health. It actually scared me. It was so jarring that I thought I was going to break a bone walking across the room. The recommendation was to start a bone building medication, and out of fear I did that. I did two IV infusions over a years time and I just decided that the long term side effects of that were not worth it. So I took supplements and tried to make sure I was exercising.</p> <p>So fast forward to a year ago when I was 54, despite my yoga practice and climbing a 1.5 mile hill once a week and taking my supplements, my bone density now was worsening to the point where I’m at a high risk for fracture. I’m 55 years old now wondering why I would be at high risk for fracture with all that activity. It seemed unfair. A friend forwarded me the AlgaeCal website in 2017 and I reviewed it and I was impressed and peer-reviewed research means something to me in my health care decisions. And I found that peer review research on the AlgaeCal website. So I poured through that website, I spent several hours looking at everything on there, there’s a lot of interesting material and I decided to start the program.</p> <p>So I want to tell you after a year on this program I’ve had a whopping 7% improvement in my hips and a 3% improvement in my femur. I’m beyond thrilled! My activity level was pretty much the same; about 6 months into that year I added another day a week of the hill climb and I added some weights during the week also. AlgaeCal is definitely providing me a very safe and natural means of restoring my bone health and I could not be happier, so much so I’ve committed another year to the Bone Building Program and I’m looking forward to some fabulous results.</p> <p>I hope this video has helped you and will help you in your decision process. Thank you so much.</p> <div class="disclaimer success-stories-disclaimer text-success"> <p>Increased bone density results are consistent with 3 published studies.

My doctor recommended 3 different medications that I could take, and she wrote the names down and I took them home to research. When I did speak with her again, I told her that I didn’t want to take the weekly medication, nor did I want to take the 6 month medication, or the annual, because of the side effects of those medications.</p> <p>And so what I did do was, I checked other things on the internet, and I increased my physical activity to playing tennis every day – Monday through Friday for at least an hour, sometimes 2 hours, and sometimes 3 hours, and would join my husband a couple times a week on his daily walks with the dog – 3 miles!</p> <p>Then I found AlgaeCal, with Strontium. It guarantees improvement within the 7 year period or your money back! I wanted bone improvement. I’ve been taking different kinds of supplements for the last 14 years, and my T-scores have continued to decline within that time. So for the past 8 months, I’ve been taking AlgaeCal Plus with Strontium Boost, and the Triple Power Omega 3 Fish Oil, and my bone scan this month (December 2017) came back with the best results!</p> <p>All of my T-Scores have improved. I’m overjoyed! I don’t know what to say.. I’m so grateful to have found AlgaeCal. My hip scores have increased 5% on the left, and 6% on the right hip. My lumbar spine has increased 13%! It went from a -2.9 to a -1.7!</p> <p>I have shared my good news with everyone, my sister, my daughters, my cousins, my nieces, my friends, all of my friends. I can’t thank you enough AlgaeCal for providing a product that works… Thank you!</p> <div class="disclaimer success-stories-disclaimer text-success"> <p>Increased bone density results are consistent with 3 published studies.

I take it easily, regularly. I remember it. I take it with meals and it’s had the amazing results. Amazing results. It is the best value for your money because it works and it’s easy to take and it solves your medical problem. I had healthy, a lot, significant, not just a little, significant healthy new bone growth is what they told me. I no longer have osteoporosis. I have tons, a lot, significant I think was their terminology. I have the confidence to do anything that I wanna do and I still wanna do lots of things in my life. I tell everybody. It saved my life.</p> <div class="disclaimer success-stories-disclaimer text-success"> <p>Increased bone density results are consistent with 3 published studies.

In 2009, a bone density scan revealed that I had osteoporosis, and in some areas of the body extreme, meaning that I was at high risk of fracture. I’m very active with running, biking, working out in the gym, so this situation was just not acceptable to me.</p> <p><strong>I did a lot of research online</strong> and I came across AlgaeCal. I liked what I read. I called the company and had a very productive conversation. In 2009, November of 2009 exactly, I started taking AlgaeCal. Sixteen months later in March of 2011, bone density scan revealed a dramatic increase in bone density. In fact, <span style="text-decoration: underline;">the doctor said he had never seen anything like it</span> in that amount of time, especially because of the fact that I was on thyroid medication.</p> <p>Follow-up bone scans in 2013 and 2016, in May of 2016 also revealed significant positive changes. I have now gone from -2.70 T-score in the left hip to -1.4. The spine which was at -2.5 T-score had now become totally normal.</p> <h5>The moral of this story is my osteoporosis has been totally reversed.</h5> <p>What makes this product not only unique but absolutely phenomenal is the fact that everything is natural. There were no side effects whatsoever. I’ve known people on Fosamax. I’ve known people who get injections, and the side effects well, they have to take additional medication in addition to that medication because of the side effects.</p> <p>I just want to thank you so much, AlgaeCal, for allowing me to have a lifestyle that has so much in joy, and I am very appreciative.</p> <p><strong>More About David via Email:</strong></p> <p class="p1"><span class="s1">David Sabot’s Bone Density Improvement of 8.7% (Spine) And 15.1% (total Hip) After Taking AlgaeCal for Six Years</span></p> <p class="p1"><span class="s2">My name is David Sabot, I am from League City, Texas, and I am seventy years old.

And so I contacted them and ended up going on AlgaeCal myself. I was real <span style="text-decoration: underline;">impressed with the research</span> I read, so I started taking AlgaeCal.</p> <p>Let’s see- it was the summer of 2011. And when I had my next DEXA run, my bone density had gone up hugely. <strong>My T scores in my spine went from a -1.9 T score to -1.5. Actually it was -1.7 to -1.5 and my femur went from -1.9 to -1.5.</strong></p> <p>So it was a really huge positive change. And I had been doing everything right for my bones- I know a lot about bone health. And I had been doing all the other things that I know about eating properly; taking all the nutrients and getting lots of weight bearing exercise- and <span style="text-decoration: underline;">the only thing I changed in my bone building regimen was switching to AlgaeCal</span> as my source of calcium. So I’m sure it’s made a big difference in me.</p> <p>So after I finished doing this I was thinking about why this form of calcium was so effective for me; why was it doing so much better of a job on the osteoblast cells in the studies, and the women who were using it in the clinical trials? And what I believe is going on is <strong>AlgaeCal is not just calcium</strong>. It is calcium in the matrix of all the other trace minerals that the sea algae uses to form itself. And the interaction amongst the nutrients is synergistic. And I think there may be trace minerals in AlgaeCal that were missing from my diet- and are probably missing in a lot of peoples’ diets that are in just the right proportions to be effective.</p> <p>I know it’s been a huge help to me and I will continue to be using it.</p> <p>I’d also like to add that I had been writing some blogs for AlgaeCal about the scientific research and I’m not doing that anymore- so I’m definitely not being paid to provide this testimonial for AlgaeCal.<br /> I want you to know I’m doing it because I think the product is effective and I hope you’ll give it a try.</p> <h3><strong>2015 Update:</strong></h3> <div class='ac-embed' id="wistia-inc-1w41udj28l"> <div class='embed-responsive embed-responsive-16by9'><iframe src="https://fast.wistia.com/embed/iframe/1w41udj28l?dnt=1&playButton=false&playerColor=676767&videoFoam=1" title="Lara's Latest DEXA Results, How She Found AlgaeCal Video" allowtransparency="true" frameborder="0" scrolling="no" class="wistia_embed" name="wistia_embed" allowfullscreen mozallowfullscreen webkitallowfullscreen oallowfullscreen msallowfullscreen width="500" height="281"></iframe></div> </div> <p>Hello, my name’s Lara Pizzorno. I’m the author of “Your Bones” and I’m here to share some information with you that I hope will help you and will encourage you to have healthier bones.</p> <p>As I mentioned in the last video, I just had my latest DEXA run last week. And I have to tell you I was nervous about it because of all that has happened to me since my last DEXA was run in 2012 and I haven’t had one done since then.</p> <p>In August of 2012, my smart car was rear-ended by a person who gunned it to get through a red light as it was changing and my little car was totally destroyed. I was hit so hard that I was thrown under the car in front of me and both the front and back ends were completely crushed. Besides lots of bruising, I broke a tooth, over the next year I had several jaw infections, I lost the tooth, I had to have a dental implant.</p> <p>In over the next eight months, my back began to hurt and it began to hurt more and more. What was happening, which we didn’t understand yet, was that I was developing a fluid-filled cyst between two of my lumbar vertebrae and until we figured that out, which took more than a year, the pain kept getting worse and worse because the cyst was growing and pressing on nerves coming from my spine.</p> <p>Finally, when I could no longer sit, or stand, or sleep because of the pain, my doctor referred me to an orthopedic specialist who ran an MRI. In a week later, this was in February of 2014, I had back surgery to remove the cyst and I began to heal. But, I had also suffered damage to my left elbow and my abdominal wall. So, eleven months after the back surgery, just this past January, I underwent more surgery to repair my arm and my abdominal wall.And then four days after that surgery, I caught the flu and I was really sick for more than two weeks.</p> <p>Ten weeks after all of this, just this past week, I had my most recent DEXA run and as I said, I was nervous about it because chronic inflammation triggers the activation of the specialized cells that remove bone; our osteoclasts. So, chronic inflammation promotes bone loss and let me tell you, I’ve had a lot of chronic inflammation these past couple of years.</p> <p>As I’ve said before, I’m also at <strong>genetically very high risk for osteoporosis</strong> in great part because I have a vitamin D receptor polymorphism, that I inherited from my family that makes it very hard for me to absorb vitamin D.</p> <p>Plus, I also have other, vitamin, what they’re called SNPs, single nucleotide polymorphisms. They’re genetic polymorphisms that increase my risk for bone loss. I have a parathyroid hormone polymorphism that translates to my having an overactive parathyroid. So, I’m more likely to produce too much parathyroid hormone and parathyroid hormone in excess promotes bone loss when it is chronically elevated. I have a polymorphism in my body’s production of immune cells. So, I tend to have a stronger and a longer lasting inflammatory response than most people, and thus I have a tendency to be chronically inflamed.</p> <p>I knew that I was doing everything that I knew how to do to make up for this. I was eating the bone-building diet I talk about in “Your Bones.” I was getting extra weight-bearing exercise as often as I could and I was being very good about taking my <a href="https://www.algaecal.com/product/algaecal-plus/" title="AlgaeCal Plus (Product Page)"><span class="brand-green">Algaecal Plus</span></a> and the extra vitamin D and extra vitamin K2 that I personally need because of my faulty genetics. But I didn’t know if it would be enough.</p> <p>I was quite worried, but, in short, yes, my DEXA results were just wonderful.</p> <p>I am now well within the <strong>completely normal range</strong>.<span style="text-decoration: underline;"> I am not even the tiniest bit osteopenic</span>.</p> <p>And given all that’s happened to me since my prior DEXA, that’s just amazing. As you know, a T-score between 1, +1.0 and -1.0 is what is considered normal or healthy. Well, my T-score is now -0.2 which is well within the healthy range and a huge improvement despite all of the above from what it was in 2012. My Z-score is also better than healthy normal which is 0.</p> <ul> <li>Mine is 0.6 and my overall age match score is better than perfect. Perfect is 100% and I’m now clocking in at 106%.</li> <li>Plus, since 2012, <strong>my body fat dropped</strong> 3.4% from 26.5% to 23.1%.</li> </ul> <p>I haven’t changed my already healthy diet, I just made a real effort to consume calcium-rich foods along with AlgaeCal Plus to make sure that I’m getting at least 1200 milligrams of calcium every day.</p> <p>And if you saw the videos in which I explain that <strong>AlgaeCal Plus is not just calcium</strong>, but contains four different kinds of plant dried calcium plus the other 12 known essential bone supporting minerals that the sea algae use to build its bony structure. Plus vitamin D3 and vitamin K2 and magnesium and vitamin C and boron and if you’ve turned in for any of the videos on other really great things that boron does for our bones, you understand that it really takes a nutrient village to build healthy bones.</p> <p>A <strong>whole team</strong> of nutrients that Algaecal Plus supplies for us.</p> <p>So, that’s my story. Today, despite my unhappy genetics, despite car accidents, and surgeries and living in Seattle where the rain festival runs from September through August, I am the proud possessor of strong, healthy bones.</p> <p>And <strong>my goal in this life is to end osteoporosis</strong>. I know it can be done, both from the science and from my personal experience.</p> <p>I hope you will join together with me, because I know we can do it. And if I can beat osteoporosis, truly, so can you.</p> <p>Thanks for tuning in and I hope this information was helpful to you.</p> <div class="disclaimer success-stories-disclaimer text-success"> <p>Increased bone density results are consistent with 3 published studies.
