Traditional calcium supplements don’t make your bones stronger
Because they can’t. Calcium supplements have been studied since the 1930s and the conclusions are always the same: at best, they can slow bone loss – a little. But they have never increased bone density a single bit. AlgaeCal can and does. It’s true! Studies show that AlgaeCal doesn’t just stop bone loss; it actually makes bones stronger – even if you're in your 60’s, 70’s, and 80s.

They're increasing their bone density.
You Can Too.
Why don't traditional calcium supplements work?
Your bones need more than just calcium!
The problem with traditional calcium supplements is that they don’t have enough nutrients.
So if your store-bought calcium...
Is missing important nutrients your bones crave - it’s like trying to bake a cake with nothing but flour. That’s why every dose of AlgaeCal contains:
16 minerals and vitamins critical for building strong, healthy bones
These are the same nutrients shown in human clinical trials to increase bone density.
Plant vs Rock Calcium
Traditional calcium supplements:
Made from crushed rocks. Really! Big calcium companies blast slabs of limestone from ‘calcium quarries.’ Those rocks are then ground into a chalky powder and put into ‘health supplements.’ Does that sound healthy to you?
100% plant-based from algae hand-harvested on South American beaches. And because your body is used to eating plants, it’s easy to digest, gentle on your system, and the minerals are better absorbed
Plant-based Calcium VS. Calcium From Rock
Supported by 3 Clinical Studies!
Only AlgaeCal has been tested in three human clinical trials of adults conducted by experienced researchers. And every single clinical trial came to the same conclusion: It works!
In one study published in The International Journal Of Medical Sciences:
A team of scientists followed 414 AlgaeCal users for one year
The smallest recorded increase in bone density among study participants was 1.3%
No side effects were found in blood chemistry tests

Frequently Asked Questions
Who are we?
pioneered the multi-nutrient approach to bone health, has
supported its effectiveness with clinical studies, and guarantees
stronger bones as measured by DEXA, making us the leader in natural bone
health since 2002.
We are firm believers in the power of nature and the veracity of good
science. AlgaeCal is proud to be the first company to popularize a plant
as a calcium source in a world of limestone calcium supplements.
Will AlgaeCal Plus interfere with my prescription medications?
Some medications and supplements require separation from AlgaeCal Plus
to limit any potential interactions. For example, thyroid medication,
antacids, and certain antibiotics should be taken at least 4 hours from
both AlgaeCal Plus. Vitamin K, including the vitamin K2 in AlgaeCal
Plus, may interfere with certain anticoagulant drugs and should be
avoided unless otherwise directed by a physician.
Always check with your doctor for details about possible interactions
between AlgaeCal products and your medications.
Does AlgaeCal Plus cause side effects such as kidney stones or blocked
Unlike traditional, rock-derived calcium supplements, AlgaeCal does not
cause side effects such as kidney stones or arterial calcification.
AlgaeCal is a natural, plant-sourced calcium that is easy for your body
to absorb. It’s similar to calcium you get from eating vegetables such
as broccoli, kale and peas. Some studies have shown that calcium from
food sources does not increase soft tissue calcification because foods
that naturally contain calcium also supply other minerals, which helps
transfer the calcium directly into your bones rather than soft tissues
like arteries, kidneys and eyes.
Additional magnesium, boron, vitamin K2 and vitamin D3 are added into
AlgaeCal Plus to optimize absorption and transport to the bone rather
than soft tissues. All these factors translate to efficient absorption
and placement into bone tissue. AlgaeCal is also much safer for you
because it is more effective at a lower dose. At 720 mg per day of
calcium, AlgaeCal Plus is increasing bone density in adults. Compare
that to regular calcium supplements that have been studied at 1200 mg
per day – and only slow bone loss.
Does AlgaeCal Plus cause constipation, gas or bloating?
The vast majority of people who experience gastrointestinal side effects
from regular calcium supplements have no issue with AlgaeCal. These
stomach troubles usually derive from consuming rock-source calcium,
which our bodies are not designed to digest. Plant calcium contains a
variety of balancing minerals including magnesium, which make it more
easily digested. We recommend that you split your daily dose into
breakfast and dinner time. Taking AlgaeCal with food increases
absorption and reduces chances of any gastrointestinal issues.
I have trouble swallowing pills. How big are the capsules? Is it OK to
open the capsules and mix it with food/beverages?
AlgaeCal Plus, AlgaeCal Basic, and Strontium Boost all use soft capsules
which are ¾” long and easy to swallow. If you do have trouble swallowing
them, the two-part capsules can be pulled apart. You can then sprinkle
the tasteless powder into your favorite drinks and food.
We recommend semi-solid foods such as smoothies, applesauce or yogurt
and avoiding hot drinks as temperatures above 120 degrees Fahrenheit may
reduce the potency of the vitamins C, D, and K2. Please note that the
AlgaeCal powder is only partially water soluble due to the many natural
minerals and therefore does not dissolve completely in liquid.
Is AlgaeCal FDA approved?
The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) only approves medications.
Since AlgaeCal is a completely natural supplement, it’s simply not
possible for AlgaeCal to have FDA approval. In saying that, AlgaeCal is
registered with the FDA under GRAS status (Generally Recognized as
Safe). GRAS status means a food ingredient is deemed safe by a qualified
panel of experts.
Is AlgaeCal Plus Vegan?
We understand that more people are adopting a vegan lifestyle and take
this into consideration when formulating and sourcing our products.
However, we have not found a high-quality, vegan vitamin D source at
this time. So while AlgaeCal Basic and AlgaeCal Plus are vegetarian,
they are not considered vegan. The source for our vitamin D3 is from
lanolin (wool wax). Although no animals are harmed during this process,
it is considered an animal product.
Can I take AlgaeCal Plus if I have a shellfish allergy?
AlgaeCal Plus does not contain any shellfish – only calcium, minerals
from organic algae and added vitamins. Many of our customers have
shellfish allergies and take AlgaeCal safely with no adverse reactions.
That being said, for any severe allergies we do advise consulting with
your doctor/allergist for their best recommendation.
Can I buy AlgaeCal in stores?
AlgaeCal is only available online because we want to make AlgaeCal
accessible to as many people as possible - worldwide - while upholding
our high standards. To be completely honest, we wouldn’t have the
resources and capacity to do this worldwide if our products were made
available in stores. By having customers purchase directly from us,
we’re also able to set them up for bone health success by providing them
with resources specific to their needs and answering their questions,
whether they be about how to take AlgaeCal or about bone health in
