Why Ocean Algae

The AlgaeCal Difference

Our formulas start with a novel, plant-based calcium source that is clinically supported to protect bones and increase bone density when taken per protocol.

Natural Support for Your Bones

Patients increasingly seek out natural ways to support health, including that of their bones. They find that hope in mother nature’s very own Lithothamnion superpositum. This oceanic plant naturally contains all 13 bone-supporting minerals. These minerals can stop bone loss, and even increase bone density – according to published clinical studies.

The Problem With Traditional Calcium

Traditional calcium supplements alone don’t make bones stronger. They can’t. That’s because bone loss isn’t a loss of calcium. It’s a loss of all the minerals in bones. Calcium supplements that contain only calcium are missing 12 vital bone-supporting minerals.

“The bone density in my spine is back to normal.”

Why Youthful Bones Are Strong

When we’re young, our bones are packed with minerals. That’s what makes them strong. But sometime after our 40th birthday, we start to lose the 13 minerals that keep our bones healthy and strong. And every year we lose more and more, which makes our bones weaker and weaker. But there’s good news.

    • Lost bone minerals can be replenished with a rare ocean algae, researchers have found. After conducting a year-long health study, scientists have confirmed that Lithothamnion superpositum (AlgaeCal) increases their bone density.
    • Hand-harvested from a beach in South America, AlgaeCal naturally contains all 13 minerals that make bones strong. Besides calcium, this natural superfood has magnesium, potassium, boron, copper, manganese, silicon, strontium, nickel, phosphorus, selenium, vanadium, and zinc.
    • To restore bones to their youthful state, you need the full spectrum of minerals — not just a couple of them.

The Only Calcium That Increases Bone Density

AlgaeCal is a powerful plant-based calcium that naturally contains all 13 bone-supporting minerals. In human clinical trials, these 13 nutrients have been shown to increase bone density — even for folks in their 60s, 70s, and 80s. That’s why AlgaeCal is backed by some of the world’s leading bone health scientists, doctors, and nutritionists.

Scientifically Backed by Published Clinical Studies

Scientists from The International Journal of Medical Sciences followed 414 AlgaeCal users for one year. Each person had a bone density test at the beginning and end of the study. These tests revealed that the smallest increase in bone mineral density among participants was 1.3%. That surprised the American research team because no other natural product had ever increased bone density.

When you consider that people lose on average 1% of bone density every year after age 40, this intervention delivers significant long-term results. With our recommended bone-building protocol, instead of losing 7% in seven years, you're enabling patients to gain 7%.

That’s a 14% swing! And almost like turning back the clock on bone loss for a full 14 years.

Review Summary

Recommended by Leading Bone Health Experts

“AlgaeCal is unique,” says medical expert Dr. Lawrence May, a professor at the University of California School of Medicine. “Taking calcium alone is never enough — you need all the minerals.”

That’s why Dr. May recommends AlgaeCal Plus to patients looking for a natural way to increase bone density.

I got a phone call from my doctor asking me, ‘What’s your secret?’

— Annie, Chatsworth, CA

AlgaeCal user Annie from Chatsworth, CA, is thankful she found AlgaeCal because, after two and a half years, her bone density is now “back to normal.” And because AlgaeCal is 100% plant-based, it was gentle on her tummy with no adverse side effects.

AlgaeCal is the only natural product on the market that’s been clinically shown to increase bone density. So if you’re looking for a natural way to make your bones stronger – AlgaeCal isn’t an option – it’s the only option!
