Raising Awareness for National Osteoporosis Month (+FREE Bone Building Prizes)

Updated: April 25, 2023

May is National Osteoporosis Awareness Month.

And chances are, you or someone you know suffers from osteoporosis.

So you understand that a sudden fracture can not only interrupt your regular routine, but change your lifestyle for the worse.

That’s why today (and the rest of the month), I’m asking you to join us in spreading the word about the importance of building and maintaining strong bones.

What You Need To Know About Osteoporosis

According to The National Osteoporosis Foundation:

Around 10 million Americans have osteoporosis. And another 44 million have low bone density, placing them at increased risk.

One in two women and up to one in four men will break a bone in their lifetime due to osteoporosis.1,2 For women, the incidence is greater than that of heart attack, stroke and breast cancer combined. 

Besides gender and family history, other factors that can put you at risk for osteoporosis include:

  • Age
  • Ethnicity
  • Hormone levels
  • Hyperthyroidism
  • Hypothyroidism
  • Overexposure to toxins
  • Certain conditions (chronic kidney disease, rheumatoid arthritis, etc.)

To stay ahead of osteoporosis it’s important to know the common signs and symptoms of low bone density. And it’s crucial to share what you know with others.

Get the Edge: How to Strengthen Your Bones Naturally

The good news is that, in many cases, you can reverse the loss of bone and increase bone strength and integrity. 

As you likely know, your bones need calcium. But that’s not all they need. Clinical studies show that it takes 13 minerals and 3 vitamins to strengthen your bones. So if you’re taking just a calcium supplement, you’re only getting ONE of the 16 essential nutrients for bone health. 

So that’s 15 missing ingredients you must have if your bones are going to get stronger. 

But you can just get them from your diet, right? Well, there’s a catch…

Modern agricultural techniques and mass food production have changed the mineral content of our produce. In fact, the mineral levels in many common vegetables are 30-50% below what they were only 50 years ago! 

So how can you make sure you get all 13 essential minerals and three vitamins — in amounts similar to that found in healthy bone — without buying 16 separate supplements?

Well, there’s a simple solution. AlgaeCal Plus. It’s a natural, plant-based calcium source that contains all the clinically supported minerals and vitamins that your bones need to stay healthy and strong! 

Teams of scientists, researchers, and professors from Harvard Medical School, Georgetown University Medical Center, and the University of Connecticut have studied AlgaeCal.

And all the studies came to the same conclusion: AlgaeCal is the only natural supplement shown in human studies to increase bone mineral density. 

When you take AlgaeCal Plus along with our natural strontium supplement Strontium Boost —  (together they form our Bone Builder Pack) — you’re guaranteed to increase your bone density in as little as six months!

Now your bone health doesn’t have to decline as you age. It can actually improve — just like it has for the thousands of people who’ve taken AlgaeCal!

When it comes to your health, take control. Share the information below to join us in raising awareness for osteoporosis.

Load Up on Bone Boosting Nutrients

Not getting enough bone-friendly nutrients puts you at higher risk of bone loss. It can also slow down the healing process if you have a fracture

That’s why it’s critical to include the right minerals and nutrients in your diet to help you rebuild and maintain healthy bones.

As you know, there are 13 minerals and three vitamins  that are shown to contribute to the bone-building process. 

And don’t forget about protein. It’s also critical for bone health. It makes up about 50% of your bone volume and about one-third of its mass!3 And it raises insulin-like growth factor (IGF-1) levels — a hormone that’s important to boost bone density, muscle growth, and healing.4

Keep Your Body Moving

Move it or lose it. Weight-bearing exercise is one of the best things you can do to increase your bone strength because of the concentrated pressure it puts on your bones. 

When you don’t regularly stress your muscles, joints and bones, they begin to weaken over time. So add some osteoporosis-friendly exercises to your weekly routine to slow bone loss and improve your muscle strength.

Test Your BMD

Get your bone mineral density tested. A DEXA scan is the standard way to determine your bone health by identifying your risk for fractures and osteoporosis. For everything you need to know about bone density testing click here.

Take A Bone Building Supplement

Remember you don’t have to accept deteriorating bone health as just “part of getting old.” Give your bones the best chance to remain strong by taking a bone-building supplement. 

As you know, AlgaeCal Plus provides ALL 13 essential minerals and the three vital vitamins in one convenient capsule.

And clinical studies show that using Strontium with AlgaeCal Plus can at least triple the rate of your bone building over a year’s time! Our Bone Builder Pack completely stacks the odds in your bones’ favor. 

AlgaeCal Plus and Strontium Boost provide your bones with all the nutrients they need. So you can keep living your fun, active lifestyle!

You now have the resources and bone health knowledge. But do your loved ones? If you want to make sure, share the information in this post to join us in spreading the word.

And don’t forget to enter our National Osteoporosis Awareness Month GIVEAWAY where you can win one the following bone-building prizes:

  • A FREE 6-month supply of AlgaeCal’s Bone Builder Pack
  • A FREE 3-month supply of AlgaeCal’s Bone Builder Pack

Osteoporosis FAQs

What is the main cause of osteoporosis?

During and after menopause, estrogen levels can take a major dip — which leads to accelerated bone loss. But other contributing factors include:

  • Family history
  • Ethnicity
  • Smoking
  • Hormone levels
  • Hyperthyroidism
  • Sedentary lifestyle
  • Pro-inflammatory diet 
  • Overexposure to toxins
  • Certain illnesses such as chronic kidney disease and chronic liver disease
What are the early warning signs of osteoporosis?

There are many early warning signs of osteoporosis. These include:

  • Height loss 
  • A curved spine
  • Receding gums
  • Bone fractures
  • Low bone density
  • Gastrointestinal issues 
  • Cramping and aching muscle or bone pain
Can you fix osteoporosis?

Yes, you can build new, healthy bone at any age, naturally!

What is the fastest way to increase bone density?

AlgaeCal Plus is clinically supported to increase your bone density. In one study published in the International Journal of Medical Sciences, 216 men and women took AlgaeCal Plus with our Strontium Boost supplement. In just 6 months, they saw an average increase of over 2% in bone density

What should you NOT do if you have osteoporosis?

Avoid doing activities that involve rounding your spine forward from the waist such as situps or toe-touches.

What can I do to decrease my chances of getting osteoporosis?

Here are nine things you can do to help prevent osteoporosis:

  • Eat a bone-building diet
  • Quit smoking and limit your alcohol intake
  • Get early DEXA scans
  • Check your hormone levels
  • Minimize stress
  • Do weight-bearing exercises
  • Get enough sleep
  • Discuss any medications with your doctor
  • Take a bone building supplement like AlgaeCal Plus
How fast does osteoporosis progress?

On average you can expect to lose about 1% of your bone density every year from 40 onwards. During and after menopause, estrogen levels can take a major dip — which leads to accelerated bone loss. This process of gradual bone loss eventually leads to osteoporosis.

What is the best exercise for bone density?

Weight-bearing exercises are great for strengthening your bones. Resistance exercises such as lunges and squats are also helpful.

What do you feel when you have osteoporosis?/ What are the symptoms?

One symptom on its own may not be cause for concern, multiple symptoms may be a good indicator of bone loss. So be on the lookout for the following symptoms:

  • Height loss 
  • A curved spine
  • Receding gums
  • Bone fractures
  • Low bone density
Should I worry if I have osteoporosis?

Although osteoporosis is a condition you should take seriously, you don’t have to live in fear. That’s because clinical studies show the nutrients in AlgaeCal can protect you from age-related bone loss. When taken with Strontium Boost, bone mineral density increases in just 6 months!

    I have osteoporosis in my spine. My dr recommended Algae Cal & Strontium Boost when I was reluctant to start medication. After taking the supplements for a year, I had a 2nd bone density test. My score had improved by .4. I’ve now added standing on a Rumblex machine for 10 minutes, 3 times a week. Dr. will order a 3rd bone density test next year. So I am hopeful for more improvement.

  20. Chelsea Dugas

    Thank you so much for this info. I have been searching and searching for help on how to strengthen my bones NATURALLY. The therapies offered by the doctors I’ve seen always involve drugs with many side effects and a wait and see attitude – if it’s not worse on your next bone scan THEN you know it’s working. I wish I had this information years ago. Still, it’s comforting to find it’s not too late to make a real difference in my bone health going forward. Thank you.

I haven taken other calcium supplements in the past which only raised my parathyroid…when I stopped, my parathyroid balanced…back to normal. I love that Algaecal is plant-based.

    I plan to send this info out to my friends and family so they can be aware of osteoporosis. The info in this article is very important. Osteoporosis is real and I don’t want my family and friends to fracture before they pay attention

    This is the perfect time to share the awareness

    I always learn something new in you articles. I did not know that the hormone IGF1 was important for bone density. I like that you include vitamin K in Algaecal, so it doesn’t clog up my arteries but go into the bone

    Osteoporosis can really creep up. I have led an active lifestyle with good nutrition. It was the DEXA scans though that really enabled me to keep track of what was happening with my bone health and take pro-active measures to pull back from an osteoporosis diagnosis. Thank you AlgaeCal!!

  221. Yoori AlgaeCal

    May 3, 2023 , 5:39 pm

    I take AlgaeCal and Strontium Boost every day to help me fight getting osteoporosis. I get a bone density test every two years. I am very active and exercise whenever possible. I have been taking AlgaeCal and Strontium Boost for many years and I prefer it to taking perscriptions. My primary care doctor knows that I take this supplement, and we are both happy with it.

    I had no idea that my bone density was low. Now, I realize my genetics and low calcium and vitamin D3 intake throughout my life are mostly responsible.
    Would love to win a trial bottle of AlgeaCal to make sure they agree with my sensitive stomach
    Looking forward to learning more!

    May 3, 2023 , 9:48 am

    Lots of great info. Since my Mom was diagnosed with Osteoporosis I knew it was coming my way, too. As with my mom, I was put on bone medication for awhile, but that caused acid reflux for me and other gastro issues for my mother. Doctor recently put me on a calcitonin-salmon nasal spray, but it’s only supposed to address spinal density & has other side affects. Why don’t doctors recommend AlgaeCal as a supplement if it does indeed help bone density issues? Just curious & really hope AlgaeCal does what it claims to do!

  237. Yoori AlgaeCal

    May 3, 2023 , 6:52 pm

    I’m so sorry to hear of all the sensitivities you and your mom went through, Fran. It’s quite common for doctors to be less familiar with natural products. In saying that, many doctors who have seen their patients’ improvements first-hand have now started to recommend AlgaeCal! 🙂

    In New Brunswick, you cannot get a bone density test unless you break a hip or an arm or femur, osteoporosis is not a priority here. I have shown AlgaeCal to my physio therapist.

    Early menopause at age of 33 was a mayor factor that led to osteoporosis very quickly. More awareness should be considered and implemented, specially among young women.

  245. Yoori AlgaeCal

    We certainly agree, Nelsie, and one of our goals is to continue to create awareness for bone loss across the world!

  247. Yoori AlgaeCal

    May 3, 2023 , 11:54 am

    As a kid, I watched my Mother and Grandmother suffer from progressive osteoporosis. I fully expected that I would also suffer from it as I grew older. My early DEXA scans supported my worry. When my GYN suggested that I look into AlgaeCal, I hesitated because it was so expensive. Finally, I splurged and I couldn’t be happier. My last 2 DEXA scan showed continued improvement (scans free every 2 years). I’m hoping and expecting that my next scan in November 2023 will also be good news. Expensive, but worth the price!

    I have been using Algae Cal Plus for several years, and now also the Strontium Boost and have seen a definite slowing of bone loss. I have a family history of osteoporosis and am aware of the challenges it increasingly presents as we get older (I am 61). I have long taken supplemental thyroid for hypothyroidism and have learned that it can reduce the absorption of supplemental Calcium. Allowing a few hours between taking the thyroid and the Calcium has helped.
    AlgaeCal’s videos with bone-strengthening exercises are excellent! I especially appreciate Dr. Fishman’s yoga sequence and the precision with which Cal Buckley demonstrates them.

    AlgaeCal is a wonderful resource on many levels. I’m hoping it will expand its reach to so many more potential customers who are interested in its benefits but deterred by the costs. Perhaps the creative folks working on strategy could consider meeting their costs by increasing customer base while lowering prices, even a bit. I have quite a few people who’d be ready to come on board (or return)!

    Thank you!

    May 3, 2023 , 1:13 pm

    I have been trying to get my calcium through diet, and have thought I was according to all food charts, until I saw information that the calcium from dairy is about 30% bioavailable. If this is correct I’d need to triple my intake? Other sources ie: vegetables are more available but still If this right one would to consume an enormous amount for daily requirements. ?

  372. Yoori AlgaeCal

    May 7, 2023 , 9:32 pm

    Great question, Rebecca!

    When the RDAs (recommended daily allowance) were established, they took into account bioavailability and absorption, though we aren’t sure about the specific numbers they used. You can read about this here. The best way to ensure that you meet your needs is to keep track of how much calcium you’re getting on a daily basis, and ensure it’s around 1200 mg. On average, American diet contains 400-500 mg of calcium per day so it may be difficult for you to reach the daily requirement just by diet. This is why we included 720 mg of calcium in AlgaeCal Plus. AlgaeCal Plus not only helps us to reach the daily requirement of calcium very easily, but also helps us to get 13 bone essential minerals along with 3 vitamins to strengthen our bones.

    I hope this helps, Rebecca! Do let us know if you have any follow-up questions! 🙂

    AlgaeCal has been my go-to place to get the best information on Osteoporosis. My entire life I listened to my doctors, and my bones have gotten worse each year. I found AlgaeCal about 9 months ago, and have learned so much more and in taking AlgaeCal I am actually seeing improvement in my bone density – for the first time in 20 years!

    Thank you for a very informative article. Both my grandmother
    on my mom’s side and my mom had osteoporosis. My grandmother’s
    doctor put her on Boniva which caused side effects. My mom did not
    do anything or take anything to help her bone density increase.
    At age 82 she fell and broke her hip and never recovered due to other
    health issues and passed away. I had osteoporsis which has now
    gone back to osteopenia while taking Algae and Stronium. I am
    so glad that this product is available for me. I wish it had been for
    my grandmother and my mom.

  398. Samantha AlgaeCal

    May 5, 2023 , 8:26 am

    Great question, Leslie! While a DEXA scan is the most accurate way to determine changes in bone density, there are other markers that can give you an indication of your progress with AlgaeCal. These are called Bone Turnover Markers (BTMs). BTMs appear in your blood as your bones remodel (they can also be detected in urine, however, blood tests are more accurate). There are two groups of BTMs: markers of bone resorption that are released by osteoclasts’ activity and markers of bone formation that are released by osteoblasts’ activities. Currently, serum C-terminal cross-linking telopeptide of type I collagen (CTX) is considered the key marker of bone resorption, and N-terminal collagen type I extension propeptide (PINP) is considered the key marker of bone formation.
    Just like a DEXA, you’ll first need to request baseline measurements from your doctor to compare with going forward. But unlike a DEXA, you can run the lab tests to check the status of your BTMs again after just 3 months. I hope this helps! Don’t hesitate to call us at 1-800-820-0184 (USA & Canada toll-free) if you have further questions. 🙂

    Thank you for the key advice for Osteoporosis. I esp. like your regular newsletters and the video talks by your scientists which educate us about so many aspects of our bones and other health factors. I appreciate your advisors who have always helped me when i reached out with questions! I am currently taking the double pack for combatting osteopenia and looking forward to improved results in the future.

    These articles tell the true story of keeping yourself and your bones in the best of shape regardless of age. AlgaeCal has been truly a miracle worker for my bones. I’ve been taking it for many years now and have dramatically changed my bone mass.

    Surprised to hear vegetables have 30% or more fewer minerals than 50 years ago. Is the numbers better for organic?

  465. Samantha AlgaeCal

    May 5, 2023 , 11:35 am

    Great question, Kate! Organic is better and a safer option as synthetic pesticides are not used. Some studies also suggest that organic foods contain higher levels of certain nutrients. You can find some more information on organic foods here. 🙂 I hope this helps!

    Hi Carole,

    Thank you for reaching out! Gosh, we’re sorry if you’re feeling a little concerned about attending your yoga class, as this was not or intention! Yoga can be a fantastic form of exercise for those battling bone loss, but we do always recommend erring on the side of caution and making sure the movements are safe for you. As such, it may be a good idea to check in with a physical therapist or doctor to ensure safety if it would set your mind at ease. 🙂

    That said, we do have a wonderful article on our blog called the Ultimate Guide to Yoga for Osteoporosis HERE, and I hope you find it useful!

    After being diagnosed with osteoporosis already in my hip(s) and osteopaenia in my lumbar region, I’ve been taking bone building supplements for about 6 months now and I’m ready to do another DEXA scan to check if there’s been improvement. I’m ready to start taking better care of my bone health and switching to AlgaeCal Bone Builder Pack might just be what I really need to do next. I’m going to share this information with family and friends, and patients where I work.

  478. Rich

    May 3, 2023 , 4:51 pm

    I am surprised to see that one in four men break a bone at least once in their lifetime due to osteoporosis as that seems higher than I would have thought. You usually just think of women breaking bones as they get a little older.

  479. Yoori AlgaeCal

    May 4, 2023 , 8:30 pm

    Exactly, Rich! Bone loss and fractures can surprisingly happen to anyone, regardless of their age, gender, ethnicity, etc!

    I have osteoporosis in my back and one hip. Osteopenia in the other hip. I work in a warehouse that processes orders, so I get a good deal of exercise. I feel this helps it from progressing. I worry when I retire that it will get worse.

  484. Christine

    May 3, 2023 , 5:08 pm

    How much protein should you have daily to build new bone?

  485. Samantha AlgaeCal

    May 5, 2023 , 11:16 am

    Great question, Christine! Recent research recommends that you consume 1-1.5 grams of protein per kg of body weight. Protein makes up about 50% of your bone volume and about one-third of its mass! You can find a handy calculator to determine your protein intake as well as additional information here! I hope this helps, please don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any further questions. 🙂

    What are the statistics for people taking strontium with AlgaeCal vs those that take AlgaeCal alone? How do we know that strontium won’t give false results?

  491. Samantha AlgaeCal

    May 5, 2023 , 11:30 am

    Great question, Lisa! You can find our detailed study here. Plan 1 refers to our AlgaeCal formulation alone without Strontium Boost which showed an increase of 1.3% in a year. Plans 2 and 3 included our AlgaeCal formulation with Strontium Boost, which showed on average, a 3% increase in a year.

    Additionally, strontium does weigh more than calcium, and its mass does impact DEXA readings but only by a very small amount. To learn more about why you don’t need to be worried about false increases, visit our blog here (scroll down to Myth #3). I hope this helps! 🙂

    I wish I would’ve been completely informed about Osteoporosis, and all the risks to my bones, when I was diagnosed at the early age of 43… the doctor just told me “take these pills for your bones”, but never educated me about the severity of this condition.

    I’m blessed to have found AlgaeCal, after massive damage to my spine due to compression fractures (yes, in plural)…. I can'[t reverse what already happened to me, but with AlgaeCal and God’s help, I can prevent it from happening again!

    I was diagnosed with osteoporosis but had previous issues with jaw health which meant the infusion based medicines like Prolia and others were not recommended. I researched available solutions to find AlgaeCal and have been taking it for about a year or so. Hoping my next bone density test will show improvement.

    Being a woman with history of 8 broken bones in the last 5yrs made me very aware of my risk for Osteoporosis. I was taling over the counter Calcium products but since have switched to AlgaeCal. It will be interesting to see whar my next DEXA scan shows. I’m looking forward to seeing the improvement since I have beem using AlgaeCal almost a year straight now

    This was very helpful…I do feel the AlgaeCal Plus is helping me as I had for a while this popping in my back /spine. It had gotten so bad I felt things were actually moving or sliding in my spine….but, thankfully I am not experiencing that at all since I have been taking the AlgaeCal Plus. I am thankful it is natural and without the side affects of the other products offered by my Dr.

    Great information! My mom broke her hip and I was extremely surprised how high the chance of death is for this situation. Several months later, I was diagnosed with osteoporosis, so it was a real eye opener. They say bone loss is a silent killer, but providing this information gives hope that something can be done to improve the situation. Thank you!
