Plant-Sourced, Certified Organic Calcium Builds Stronger Bones in 180 Days
I have a hard time taking calcium. It usually upsets my stomach, but I have recently discovered plant-based calcium. It is much more gentle, and as a vegetarian, I am ensured my dietary ethics are not being compromised by my supplements.
AlgaeCal is derived from the South American Algae Algas Calcareas.
Most of the calcium supplements sold today are derived from limestone, so unless you know what to look for, the chances are that you're swallowing things like citric acid, oyster shells, coral and stones. This rock-sourced calcium can be difficult to absorb and can cause digestive problems. We're just not meant to eat rocks!
However, there's another type of calcium that's ideal for the vegan or vegetarian diet. Plant-sourced calcium comes from an edible substance: algae. A study shows that plant calcium can increase the growth of human bone building cells from 200 to 400% more than other types of calcium. AlgaeCal is raw, unbleached, completely plant-based and the only USDA Certified Organic calcium available. It is easy to digest, rich with other essential bone health minerals and ecologically harvested.
Furthermore, AlgaeCal backs its products with a 6 month refund guarantee if after 180 days your bones are not stronger as evident on a body DEXA scan.
In a six-month randomized, open label human clinical study, 176 women and men ages 18 to 85 used AlgaeCal Plus and Strontium Boost supplements and followed a healthy diet while participating in a light exercise program. In just six months (180 Days), participants experienced a significant average INCREASE in bone mineral density of 2.8% as evidenced by before and after DEXA scans. Highly compliant participants experienced an INCREASE in bone mineral density by an incredible 3.7%.Disclosure: I was sent free samples of these products to review. No prior assurances were given as to whether the review be positive or negative.
