Meet the Man Who Started A Bone Health Revolution
AlgaeCal founder Dean Neuls’ passion for all things bone health was born out of a desire to relieve a sudden pain he began experiencing in his own bones. Pain that kept him from doing the things he loved.
He wanted a better, natural alternative to calcium from crushed rocks. That’s because traditional rock-based supplements could only slow bone loss — but Dean wanted calcium that could actually build new bone.
He found it on a beach in South America.
That’s where he was introduced to an ocean algae that contains all 13 of the essential minerals scientifically shown to support healthy bones. That moment was the birth of AlgaeCal, and it changed the world of calcium supplements forever.
