Jean Riggio Said No to Bone Strengthener

“There has been a 5.8% increase in the BMD in the lumbar spine, a 13% increase in the right femoral neck and a 5.4% increase in the left femoral neck.”

 

My story goes like this.

I’m a 74 year old woman who was recommended by her gynecologist to start taking a prescription bone strengthener for Osteopenia of the AP spine. I was already taking AlgaeCal but not seriously until she suggested the alternative. I have read enough to know the prescription products could cause exactly what I didn’t want such as fractures or jaw bone problems. I have taken both versions along with the Strontium. I don’t always take the Strontium and wasn’t when these tests were done.

I had a bone scan and another a year later. The findings were fairly significant. The radiologists comments were:

The current scan is compared with the previous one dated a year earlier. In the interval, there has been a

  • 5.8% increase in the BMD in the lumbar spine,
  • a 13% increase in the right femoral neck
  • and a 5.4% increase in the left femoral neck.

I can only attribute the results to AlgaeCal, a healthy diet and some exercise. I take no other meds except for a periodic baby aspirin.

Thank you for a product that actually does what it says.
