All the popular calcium supplements on the market are made from rocks (limestone and marble). The ‘code’ word is used on a label is “calcium carbonate” or “calcium citrate”. Hauled out of open pit mines using heavy machinery, rock has been popularly used because it is high in elemental calcium – at 40% – and because it is cheap for the manufacturer.

Until plant calcium was available, rock calcium products could be seen as better that nothing, as they are able to slow down your bone loss. You naturally lose 1% of bone every year after age 35 or so. Rock calcium products (like Caltrate or Tums) do slow that loss to .5% per year. But you are still losing bone, and will get osteoporosis – IF you live long enough!

Hopefully since you are reading AlgaeCal News you are not one of the unsuspecting rock calcium users, and have learned that AlgaeCal products will help you actually increase your bone density, not just slow down the
loss.

    They keep saying it has 13 mineral included in the algae cal, but they don’t list any other than boron. Then they say 70 trace minerals. If there are minerals in it, don’t you have to list them?

    Hi Kathy,

    Great question, you can see the listed 13 bone-supporting minerals on our ingredients page here: https://www.algaecal.com/algaecal-ingredients/

    Right under the first table. Hope this helps!
