Rock vs Plant

Did you know most calcium products are made from ROCK? Why take limestone calcium when you can have a complete, PLANT whole-food mineral complex?

Why Food-Sourced Calcium Is a Big Deal

A quick internet search will tell you that food-sourced calcium is better than taking a calcium supplement. Of course, this is true, but what if you could get food-source calcium in a supplement? AlgaeCal® calcium comes from algae growing in the waters of South America; a food source.

Why Calcium Matters

Without a doubt, your body needs calcium. We’re not just talking about your bones and teeth, but your blood, your nerve cells, your connective tissue, your muscles and your bodily fluids all require calcium. When your body gets all the vitamins and minerals it needs, it can work in harmony. Remove even one of these vitamins and minerals, and your body won’t do what it’s supposed to do -thrive!

If you’re not getting the required amount of calcium on a daily basis, your body won’t be functioning like it should, and it’s structure, like your bones, starts to break down. At around the age of 30, your bones start to lose calcium, but it doesn’t have to be a losing war. If you know the difference between the types of calcium out there, you can make a better decision for your health, your body and your family.

The Food-Source Calcium

It matters because food-source calcium is the easiest for your body to digest. When you take in either calcium carbonate or calcium citrate, your body doesn’t get the same amount of calcium it would from a food source. Much of the calcium in a food-source is in its elemental form, and that’s the form your body needs. While it can do its job breaking down portions of the other forms of calcium, it makes the entire process easier when you can take elemental calcium.

If you’re not getting your calcium from a food-source, you might be putting yourself at risk for kidney stones, gas, bloating and constipation. At the very least, it could lead to some embarrassing side effects, but at most, you could suffer negative consequences that could be avoided.

AlgaeCal® Plus Calcium Supplement

Because we believe that a food-source calcium is the most important part, we harvest algae known to be high in calcium, sun dry it and mill it into a powder. That means there are no unwanted chemicals or materials in the supplement we provide you. Everything is completely natural, and the ingredients we list on the bottle are what you’ll find inside.

Don’t Stop There

If you’re looking for a better calcium regimen, try our AlgaeCal® Plus and Strontium Boost combination. Studies have shown that strontium plays a key role in helping your body use all the calcium it gets. If you need to know where to buy AlgaeCal® Plus and Strontium Boost, you can order from You can also review the various studies that have been conducted and do some independent research.

Where are you getting your calcium? AlgaeCal® plant calcium comes from an all-natural food-source, so you can trust that you’re making the best decision for your body and for the environment around you.

AlgaeCal®, The Planet’s ONLY Guaranteed Calcium

There are over 580 calciums available, but not one promises a result… until now! Sure, some offer a 30 day satisfaction guarantee, but that speaks nothing of results. New AlgaeCal Plant Calcium guarantees to stop your bone loss in 180 days – or you get all six months of your money back! This proven product promises to improve your bone strength quickly at any age.

Why don’t other calcium supplements offer such a guarantee?

The answer is easy. You see, over 90% of calcium supplements are made from rock. Go get your bottle and look at the “Supplements Facts” part of the label. You’re going to see “calcium carbonate” or “calcium citrate” on the label, which means you are eating stones. Super-heated, pressed with glues and binding agents into large, hard to swallow tablets, rock calcium is well documented to be constipating, poorly digested and therefore only slows your bone loss. Since most calcium products cannot stop your bone loss, they will not guarantee it.

How is this guarantee possible? Because AlgaeCal Plant Calcium is body-friendly sea algae, it is scientifically studied to be better absorbed than limestone calcium supplements. But better bio-availability of AlgaeCal is only the beginning. Another study on human osteoblasts showed AlgaeCal has a several fold better effect at mineralizing and proliferating these bone building cells versus calcium carbonate and calcium citrate. Most important, clinical studies have shown AlgaeCal formulas to have a superior effect on bone density of adults. In one recent study, women with an average age of 55 were able to stop their bone density loss completely within six months. That is why AlgaeCal Plant Calcium is the ONLY calcium supplement to offer you guaranteed results.

You wouldn’t eat chunky granite granola, or serve up a lemon and limestone pie, would you? So why eat rock derived calcium supplements? Smart shoppers choose certified organic, body-friendly AlgaeCal Plant Calcium.

A Symphony Or A Solo?

Since childhood you’ve been taught that bone health requires calcium. So you drink your milk, eat your cheese and yogurt, and take a single element calcium supplement- and still your bone density begins to decrease once you hit your mid 30s.

But this should come as no surprise since your bones are not made from calcium alone. They are made from many other minerals found in AlgaeCal®. Magnesium, selenium, manganese, boron, vanadium, zinc, copper, strontium, molybdenum, and silica are all proven bone building nutrients. Each of these minerals are present and serve a purpose in our bones… and each of these minerals are found in AlgaeCal Plant Calcium. Literature shows that excessive consumption of any mineral drives out other important minerals. For example, too much calcium can cause magnesium and zinc deficiency – both of which are critical to your bone health. That is why the correct balance of 13 bone supporting minerals in AlgaeCal Plant Calcium supports your bones better. Choose the symphony, not the solo.

Buyer Beware! Bleached Plant Calciums Posing as AlgaeCal®

AlgaeCal® is the ONLY marine algae calcium from hand harvested, living algae. There are other algae calciums available in supplements on the shelves of Canadian and American health food stores. These calcified algae are the product of industrial dredging operations with massive vacuums that suck mainly dead algae sand from the ocean floor. The process causes environmental damage by stripping the ocean bottom, then suffocating delicate ecosystems with silt. 80% of the vacuumed material is ocean debris that gets thrown back – and the remaining 20% is dead, decomposed algae that is then treated to a 24 hour chemical bleach bath, bottled, and sold as pure plant calcium. These calcium ingredients have no clinical studies on human bone health, or organic certification. They are not live-harvested, and the dredging is not ecologically sound, yet in a capsule or a tablet they look like a similar powder to AlgaeCal. They cost about 1/7th as much as AlgaeCal so it is very tempting for some manufacturers to use them. AlgaeCal Plant Calcium is licensed to bear the AlgaeCal logo, and contains only pure AlgaeCal and vitamin D3.

Patent pending AlgaeCal® is an ocean algae from South America that is revolutionizing calcium supplementation.

How Much Calcium Do You Need?

The National Academy of Sciences, Dietary Reference Intakes suggests that an average adult should get 1000-1300 mg elemental calcium each day. But studies indicate a typical North American adult gets only 500 – 700 mg elemental calcium per day from food. So AlgaeCal Plant Calcium was formulated to provide 750 mg elemental calcium per day to make up for shortfall of calcium in our diets. So, if you get 550 mg of calcium from your food, plus 750 mg from AlgaeCal your total is 1300 mg per day which is optimal for even the most needy groups.

Recommended Calcium Intakes

What’s In An AlgaeCal Supplement?

Calcium is getting a lot of attention lately. It seems every few days, there is another study released by a reputable organization either providing strength to the calcium debate or taking some of its steam away.

The majority of the studies conducted are done on a calcium type not found in the AlgaeCal supplement. Studies, which have been referenced below, are testing Calcium Carbonate. This form of calcium is not plant-based and is derived from rocks or salt. This type of calcium is harder to digest, and it can sometimes do more harm than good.

AlgaeCal calcium supplement is an all-natural, whole food calcium supplement containing no Calcium Carbonate. Studies that have been conducted on the AlgaeCal supplement show very different results from those done on Calcium Carbonate.

Where Does Calcium Carbonate Come From?

Most Calcium Carbonate is hundreds of millions years old. Long before you or me, the world was still teeming with life. Sea creatures inhabited the vast oceans, lived out their lives and died. After they passed, their calcite skeletons collected on the sea floor. As time pushed forward, the plates of the earth continued to move and the skeletons were pushed up against the earth’s crust with immense pressure. This pressure is what turns these calcite skeletons into calcium carbonate. Hundreds of millions of years later, these mineralized skeletons are harvested, processed as a supplement and sold to you, the consumer.

While this process may be mostly natural, scientific evidence is still showing that those who take calcium carbonate are experiencing negative side effects that can have drastic life consequences.

Where Does AlgaeCal Calcium Come From?

We don’t have to go deep into the ocean to find our whole food calcium. You can see it when you walk on the beaches of many South American countries. It’s known as Algas Calcereas, sp., and it is the main source of calcium in the AlgaeCal supplement. In an era where it’s hard to envision food being processed without the use of automated machinery or expensive factories, we’ve gone back to a natural process that has served humans for eons – gathering. The AlgaeCal supplement is handpicked and sun dried. The only process we put it through is the milling process, turning it into a powder. The rest is done by simple hands and the warm sun.

AlgaeCal Plus

To make our AlgaeCal calcium supplement more effective, we’ve added vitamin D3 to help with calcium digestion. Both play an essential role in the digestive process going on in your body.

Still Unsure If AlgaeCal Plant Calcium Really Works? Consider The Science

1. A Comparative Effectiveness Research Study on the Safety, Efficacy and Tolerability of a Plant-Sourced Calcium Supplement vs. a Leading Calcium-carbonate Supplement

In a 6 month Comparative Effectiveness Research Study, 50 women with an average age of 55 used AlgaeCal Plant Calcium and maintained a healthy diet and lifestyle. After just 180 days, bone loss was stopped, as indicated by before and after DEXA tests.

A 100 person clinical study showed AlgaeCal Plant Calcium affects bone density 1.6 times greater than the market-leading calcium carbonate, stopping bone loss completely at the 6 month mark. As part of the same study, subjects in the calcium carbonate group reported discomfort (gas, bloating, constipation) resulting in an 18% dropout rate. There were no such complaints or dropouts from the AlgaeCal participants . This study is ongoing with publication expected in 2011.

2. Comparative Effects of AlgaeCal vs. Two Common Calcium Salts on Proliferation and Mineralization in Human Osteoblast Cells

A study comparing effects of AlgaeCal to calcium carbonate and calcium citrate on human osteoblast cells showed AlgaeCal having several-fold greater effect on mineralization and proliferation of these bone building cells. Osteoblasts are the cells responsible for bone growth, and the increased effect due to AlgaeCal helps to explain the ability to stop bone loss. Other significant results from the same study showed AlgaeCal reducing oxidative stress on a cellular level.

References to studies that have been conducted are linked below for your consideration.

Vitamin D3

There have been a number of studies performed on vitamin D3, and the common thread is that the average person isn’t getting enough. In areas, like the west coast, that sometimes get weeks upon weeks of grey skies, it’s vital that you get enough vitamin D3 in your diet. This vitamin has been shown to work in tandem with calcium to promote strong, healthy bone structure. Boron Studies have shown that in as little as one month, boron can help increase bone strength and decrease the amount of pain one feels from arthritis. Science has made it clear that boron plays a key role in keeping your bones strong and healthy throughout your life.


25 g of your body is made up of magnesium. At least half of that portion resides in your bones. It stands to reason that magnesium plays a part in keeping your bones at optimal functioning level. The Office of Dietary Supplements at the National Institutes of Health says that magnesium is an integral part of the body’s functioning. Not just for bones, but for a wide range of purposes.

It takes time and effort to do all the research, but when it comes to something as important as your health, it’s well worth it. There’s nothing more important than knowing in your heart that the actions you are taking will, without a doubt, be beneficial to your health.
