“I got a phone call from my doctor asking me, "what is your secret?"”

Annie Croell

Chatsworth, California


Annie Croell - Chatsworth, California

I was looking for a solution to my bone density problem. And I came upon AlgaeCal online.

I was told in my early 40's that I needed to start taking calcium. My mother suffers from very bad bone density and has had multiple fractures and I didn't want that to happen to me. I've had numerous issues with acid reflux and I have a hiatal hernia and taking any kind of calcium in the past felt like I was swallowing rocks and it was very upsetting to my stomach and I could just never tolerate it. I found AlgaeCal and was really pleasantly surprised that I didn't have any issues in taking it. And I did the bone builder pack and I have gone, my T-scores have gone from a -3.0 to a -2.0 in about two and a half years. My bone density is basically normal in every part of my body now except for my spine which I anticipate having normal results probably within another year. I am a firm advocate for taking charge of your own life and your own health and stop being a victim, seek out the information you are never gonna find more support than you find in the AlgaeCal community. I am awed at the information that is available there from the team at AlgaeCal and just the support from the community that participate in helping people find solutions to their problems. I have my sister, my cousin, my friends when my bone density was done. Later that evening I got a phone call from my doctor asking me, what is your secret? And I knew she was going to be calling me. I knew it based on my results. They were so stellar, so amazing, to have year after year showing the increase in my bone density. I knew she was going to call. It was great. It was very validating and rewarding. Anyway that's my story.

I'm a firm advocate for AlgaeCal. I love the team, I love the product and I couldn't be happier, thanks.

“I’ve had no side effects. And the results have been amazing!”

Roxane Cummings

Cope, South Carolina


Roxane Cummings - Cope, South Carolina

Hi, my name is Roxanne Cummings.

At age 54, I had my first bone scan and realized that I was dealing with some bone loss. This was quite a surprise. I have always tried to eat right, at least for the last 10 or 15 years, I exercised daily and thought I was in pretty good health. So bone loss was something that wasn't even on my radar. I decided to add a vitamin D supplement to my daily routine and some calcium, and just sorta continued on. My followup bone scan two years later showed that what I was doing wasn't working. The bone loss had continued and progressed somewhat, not a great deal, but my vitamin D and calcium supplements certainly had not stopped the bone loss. I began doing more research and my research led me to the AlgaeCal website. I was so encouraged by what I saw and read there. It was a natural product, no side effects and those who had tried it showed some remarkable results. So in August of 2019, I began taking AlgaeCal and the Strontium Boost. And I did it faithfully for two years, waiting for my next bone scan. Well, that happened this past August in August of 2021. And when I got the results, I just sat there scared to open them, not knowing what I would find. But I was thrilled with the improvements in my bone density. My lumbar spine T-score had improved from a negative 2.5 to a negative 2.0 and the report indicated that there was a positive, significant change of 7.8% in mineralization. And my proximal femur T-score improved from a negative 1.6 to a negative 0.4, with a 6% increase in mineralization. I was thrilled!

Thank you, AlgaeCal, you've been an answer to prayer. I've had no side effects and the results have been amazing.

“My doctor said I should try AlgaeCal”

Lisa Reiss

Selden, New York


Lisa Reiss - Selden, New York

Hi, my name is Lisa Reiss and I'm 55 years old.

A few years ago, I was told that my bone density was low. I was really nervous and I did some research and I discovered AlgaeCal and I printed up everything I could from the website and showed my doctor. He approved and he said I could try it and in under two years, my bone density has increased 6.6% in my spine and 5.6% in my hip. I am so excited that I discovered AlgaeCal, Strontium Boost and Triple Power, and I plan to take it until my bone density is normal. I'm determined and I know it's gonna happen.

Thank you so much, AlgaeCal. So happy I found you.

“It was as if I was given back 30 years”

Mimi Guzman

Sandy, Utah


Mimi Guzman - Sandy, Utah

Hello, I'm Mimi. It's October, 2020, and I'm turning 74 this month. I was living abroad for six years, from the time I turned 63 to my 69th year and I was not taking calcium supplements. When I returned to the U.S. I was told that I was high risk for bone fractures. I'm 5'2, and weigh 95 pounds, so I'm definitely small boned. I live in Utah. We have wonderful hiking trails that I like to go on, and I also like to bike, and I have had a walking routine of three miles a day, at least six days a week, for some time, I was concerned if I had an accident and fell, I could easily break a bone. I saw the ad for AlgaeCal somewhere on the internet. I read all the material, I heard some of the testimonials, and I decided I was going to exercise faith that this was my solution. I took AlgaeCal and Strontium Boost starting in June of last year. Then a couple of weeks ago, I went to my doctor and he ordered a DEXA scan of my wrist, right there at his office, and when he came back in the room, I couldn't see his smile, because he was wearing a mask due to COVID, but from the tone of his voice, and the expression of his eyes, I could tell it was something important. And then he said, "well, you have super bones." And I jumped for joy. And I said, "yes, my bone supplement worked!" It was nothing short of a miracle to me. It wasn't just that my bone density loss had stopped, but my bones were back to normal. I went from a T score of -2.6 in 2016 to -0.6. I was thrilled, it was as if I was given back 30 years. I want to thank Dean Neuls and his team for bringing this wonderful, natural product to the market, and I'm telling all my girlfriends about AlgaeCal.

“I wanted a natural alternative to restoring my bone density”

Laura Farrell

Spring, Texas


Laura Farrell - Spring, Texas

Hello, my name is Laura Farrell. I am 53 years old.

In 2019, I had a DEXA scan and my doctor let me know that my scores indicated bone loss in my spine and hip. So I decided I wanted to seek out a natural alternative to restoring my bone density. And I came across AlgaeCal Plus. I watched all the videos and read all the success stories. And so I immediately called and ordered a year's worth of Strontium Boost and AlgaeCal Plus. And fast forward to May of this year, 2021, I am happy to report that my scores have improved. My spine is now in normal range and my hip has improved quite a bit. So I am a believer of AlgaeCal Plus, I will continue to take it. And I put my 76 year old mother on it who also suffers from bone loss. She is excited about my results and looks forward to her next DEXA scan. And I'm sure she will also have improved scores because AlgaeCal Plus works. Thank you.

Oh my god. I couldn't believe the results. The technician couldn't believe the results. My doctor couldn't believe the results.

Everybody's like, "what are you using? What are you using? So I can tell our other clients!"

I first found out about bone loss in a retirement article that I'd read that said that women over fifty should have their bone density checked.

Well, I didn't even know what bone density was, but I put it on my list of things to do with the doctor.

I was surprised to find out the results.

You know, I consider myself a very healthy person, but the numbers surprised me.

So my first thing I did was, you know, increase my calcium. Let's get those bones strong.

I don't wanna trip and fall and break a leg easily now that I'm over fifty. And one of my doctors recommended AlgaeCal. Of course I've never heard of it. I looked into it.

I ordered it.

Since then, I've been getting annual bone density studies.

And I am happy to report that my numbers have actually doubled since the baseline one was first done in 2021.

Oh, my god. I couldn't believe the results! The technician couldn't believe the results. My doctor couldn't believe the results.

Everybody's like, "what are you using? What are you using? So I can tell our other clients!", and I've told them I was using AlgaeCal. And the great thing was with the guarantee that they offer, you would get everything back that you invested in AlgaeCal if your numbers didn't improve!

What did I have to lose?!

I am a subscriber for life!

Thank you, AlgaeCal.

Thank you for saving my bone density and for making me feel healthier and happier than I ever have.

Hi, I'm Ella, and I'm going to tell you about my AlgaeCal experience. First of all, I'll start by saying that I was embarrassingly naive about the numbers and the importance of the DEXA scan and the T-scores until recently, which is crazy, but it's a truth. A year ago, my doctor encouraged me to get the DEXA scan, and I finally did.


And that was depressing. She said that I have to start taking medication immediately. They asked me if I had been in some major accident and medication for me is pretty much the last resort. So I went investigating and I found AlgaeCal and I took it religiously for a year with the Strontium and I just took another DEXA scan and it is good news.


My bone mineral density and my spine went up 9.3% and the T-score in my spine was -3.3 and it went up to -2.7, which is very... is awesome for one year, only one year! My total mineral bone density for my neck went up 13%. So these are pretty good numbers. And the T-scores went from like -2.6 to a -2.2.


So it is looking good, much better and I am looking forward to getting even better. AlgaeCal has never been a problem as far as getting a stomach upset or any other things that other calcium might have done, and I am just very happy. And I just also want to say that the support team are awesome. They're very knowledgeable and it's a pleasure to call them whenever you have a question.


So I have nothing but good things to say about AlgaeCal. Thank you AlgaeCal!



Hi, this is Ella, and this happens to be my second year using AlgaeCal. So this year, the second year I was actually skeptical to take another test. I know a lot of people wait two years to take another test, so it's not only skeptical. I was scared of the results. And when I received my results, I was ecstatic! Ecstatic! My bone density in my spine increased 15%.


The T-score went from a -3.1 to a -2.1. I was amazed, absolutely amazed. These are not opinions. These are not reviews. These are doctor reports. So I'm just happy, happy to spread the word about AlgaeCal. They say that, you know, the “bone density can't really change once it's there”, “it's written in stone”, and that's not true.


Here it's the fact that it can make it better. And I'm looking forward to getting better and better. And I'm so happy to spread the word about AlgaeCal!

Ann Rebera - Virginia

Hello. My name is Ann Rebera, and I wanted to share my AlgaeCal story with you. I have had bone loss since my thirties. And when my doctor told me that I needed to take medication, I'm a registered nurse, so I looked up the side effects of that medication, and I knew right away that I did not want to take that.

So I tried all other types of treatments, lots of different vitamin supplements, other types of things. I've never been able to tolerate regular calcium supplements, so that was never helpful to me. My bone density continued to decline with the greatest decline after menopause with my t scores anywhere from -1.9 to -2.9. So that was very concerning to me, and I kept searching for other ways to improve my bone density. I believe I saw an ad for AlgaeCal several years ago, and right away I felt that it would be right for me. It was an all natural source of high quality calcium.

And then I saw that the Strontium was also available as another thing that could help me.

So I immediately started taking it, and I've been taking both for about a year and a half now. And I just had another bone density scan. And this time, my t scores were between -1.6 and -2.4, which was a pretty good improvement in bone density. And then the percentages of my bone density increases were from 5.5% to 11.4%.

So to say I was happy is very understatement. I was really ecstatic and needless to say, I'm going to continue taking AlgaeCal and Strontium forever!

Beth Impson - Tennessee

I'm Beth. I'm a 70 year old retired college English professor. I'm not a very active person. If you say activity, I'm likely to think reading or writing or doing embroidery work. And if you say game, I think solitaire or crossword puzzles. This, I thought, put me at little risk of bone fractures. You have to do something to break a bone, don't you?

So when I received a diagnosis of significant bone loss in February of 2022 and was told I could fracture my spine or hip just by bending over to pick up my shoes, I was pretty startled. I decided it was time to pay better attention to my overall health. So I began researching and right away, AlgaeCal began coming up.

As an academic, I was intrigued by the excellent research which showed that AlgaeCal really does increase bone density even in older people like myself. So I decided to give it a try. I was amazed at how much information the AlgaeCal community held on every aspect of health. All of it based on excellent research. I learned how bone density can be rebuilt and what affects it both positively and negatively.

I learned about the role of various nutrients in that process and the role of weight bearing exercise. And I learned from community members who are living very active lives not to be afraid of living mine. Over my first year, taking both AlgaeCal Plus and Strontium Boost in the recommended doses with no side effects -- I also cut out most sugar and most highly processed carbs and I worked up to walking 20 to 30 minutes a day every day. Without trying, I lost 30lbs and I began to feel better than I had in years. I was hoping that I would at least not have lost any more bone density, maybe improved just a little bit. A year isn't a real long time for this anyway.

So when I got the results, I was ecstatic. I had improved so much in both my spine and my hip. I had gone from a -3.0 T-Score in my spine to a -1.8 and from a -2.5 score in my hip to a -1.6. I no longer have any significant fractures, and I'm still living the life that I love, not forcing myself to do things that I don't enjoy and yet improving in my health in every way.

AlgaeCal + diet + exercise + the expertise and the encouragement of those in the AlgaeCal community all add up to success. Thank you.

In October 2016, I fell and broke my ankle in lots of little pieces. The surgeon that repaired it mentioned that it broke that way because my bones were so brittle. After the cast was removed and all the physical therapy, I decided to do something about it. I began taking AlgaeCal and Strontium and immediately went for a bone scan in May of 2017.

I was thrilled to find out that my numbers had increased 8.80% in my spine. 10.35% in my left hip and 16% in my right hip. Hooray! I am convinced. I'm so convinced that if I can get this result at 84 years old, what can a younger person hope to realize? I've had three DEXA scans since 2019 and they all showed improvement in the numbers.

The last one I had this year actually showed amazing results for a woman of my age. I had two nasty falls in the past three years and each time I was taken to the hospital, against my better judgment. They found no broken bones. I could have declared a miracle if I hadn't been on your regime of AlgaeCal and Strontium.

Numbers are important because they show progress, and it's wonderful to know that your bones are getting better and better. But at my age of 88 years old, surviving two falls with no injury is of monumental importance. I'm not looking to be able to play tennis again, but surviving a fall is indeed a miracle. I am thankful for finding something that makes my bones stronger.

I live a healthy, active life and want to wish all of you much success in your goals. And perhaps at 88, you will also have the same peace of mind that I have.

Linda Rubin - New York


Hi, my name is Linda and I'd like to share my AlgaeCal experience with you going back 13 years to my very first DEXA scan, I was 50 years old. It was just a routine DEXA scan.

My doctor called me quite alarmed when he got the results, saying that I had severe bone loss. I being 50 at the time and I had really no experience with bone loss prior to this, didn't really take him too seriously. He did suggest several medications and I just decided, you know, I was going to go on with my lifestyle the way it was, maybe throw some extra exercise in.

So I started to do yoga and joined the gym and started to do weight bearing exercises over the next several DEXA scans. Unfortunately, my bones continue to deteriorate. I went to several different specialists at this point. They all wanted me to be on different medications that they picked. By this time I had researched the medication and thought: “These are not for me.”

There has to be a better, more natural way to heal my bones. So I started doing more exercise and hoped that I could increase my bone density to the point where the doctors would stop pressuring me. But that unfortunately did not happen, and it continued to get worse and worse and worse until in 2018 the T-score of my spine was a -5.

Now I was really getting scared and I was mindful of every step I took. It did affect my quality of life. I used to hike a lot and go bike riding and horseback riding and I kind of put a hold on all of that and started walking the track instead. Then I saw an article about AlgaeCal, and I saw all the wonderful reviews that people were posting and the wonderful results that they were getting and thought: “I should definitely give this a try.”

Of course, being skeptical with everything and afraid to try everything, I didn't quite know what to expect. I started it in August of 2021 and after about four months I said, you know, let me get a DEXA scan” just to kind of see what my numbers are at this point. So I'll have a better way to judge when I have my DEXA skin next year.

And I was like shocked to see that there was already quite a bit of improvement. So fast forward another year and I just had my another DEXA scan in November of 2022 and my spine went to 3.9. So that was amazing. That was at 12% increase in a year. My hip went from 2.8 to 2.5, so that was a 5.9% increase.

So I was pretty impressed. This is just like amazing for me. I always dreaded going for my DEXA scans and now kind of excited about my next one. I'm going to continue on this good route and I suggest it to anybody and everybody that has bone loss to give this product a try. It is truly a wonderful product out there and I'm so grateful for AlgaeCal and the whole AlgaeCal team for all their guidance that they've given me to find this wonderful option to stronger, healthier bones.

Linda Zarnowski - East Brunswick, NJ


Hi, my name is Linda Zarnowski and I'd like to share my story about my bone health. When I was 48 years old, I broke my foot and I also broke my ribs. And at that point the doctor suggested that I go for a bone density scan to see if there was any trouble.

And unfortunately, after the scan, I learned that I had significant bone loss. So at that point my choice was either to take medicine or to start with calcium, and I decided to take calcium. I didn't do much research on the calcium and after a few years I ended up with kidney stones. So I had to come up with a new way to help my bones.

That's when I started to do significant research. And my mother also heard about a company called AlgaeCal. So I started to research AlgaeCal, and I found out that there were important minerals in their products.

 AlgaeCal Plus and also Strontium. So I contacted the company and I started to take these vitamins and minerals to see if they could help improve my bone density. During that time

that I joined AlgaeCal, I spoke with bone health coaches, I joined the blog. I read Lara Pizzorno’s book about Your Bones, and I also joined the Facebook group. I found that their resources were excellent, they were very informative and really very helpful to keep me informed on the latest information about how to increase your bone density.

Most recently, I also started doing 12 yoga poses to help with bone loss, and after being with AlgaeCal for a while, I've gone for my recent bone density scan and I had I had significant improvement. There was an 8% improvement in my spine and there was a 16% improvement in my hips, which to me I was very thankful for.

And my doctor was also very pleased with that information. This was the second time that I had an increase as a result of taking AlgaeCal and Strontium. I strongly believe in these products. They made a difference for me and I believe they can make a difference for you. So I just wanted to say thank you for listening to my story I wish you good luck and healthy bones. All the best.

Sheila Hoffman - Seattle

Hi, my name is Sheila Hoffman. I live in Seattle and I'm 73. I went through menopause at age 45. As you likely know, women are prone to weakening bones, as our estrogen levels dwindle. As a health conscious vegan since 1990, I was opposed to taking standard HRT, as well as any pharmaceutical approach to my weakening bones.

Initially, I used topical creams and over-the-counter calcium supplements, but my bones did continue to progressively weaken over time. My husband and I ride a tandem bicycle and I’ve had a couple of accidents along the way. I have a plate in my foot from my very first bike accident in 1991. This had kept me from being much of a walker.

In 2013, I broke my hip in another cycling accident. I just had a DEXA scan the week before seeing a severe bone loss. While neither of these accidents were due to my bone loss, I started worrying and exploring options online. When I discovered AlgaeCal, I really appreciated how comprehensive and natural the product line is. I began the full Bone Builder program right away, along with wearing a step tracker to get some weight bearing exercise.

I finally started walking almost four miles every day. The combination has been nothing short of amazing. My bi annual DEXA scans have continued to improve over time. I went from “severe bone loss” to merely MILD bone loss, as evidenced with these numbers from my pre accident DEXA to my current scan just a week ago. Nine years after that accident, my spinal T score went from -2.4 to positive 0.7 and my femoral neck went from -3.1 to -1.8.

I've been telling all my friends ever since, and I urge you to give AlgaeCal a try and see for yourself. I wish you a lot of luck.

Bev Zizzy - Saskatchewan

Hi there! My name is Bev and I would like to share with you my experiences with bone density and with AlgaeCal. I'm 69 years old and I have had a very healthy lifestyle all my life. I've been a yoga practitioner all of my adult life, as well as having a very active lifestyle and a primarily vegetarian diet.

So I was really surprised when I had a bone scan two and a half years ago which indicated that I had low bone density issues. My previous scan, which I think was about three years prior to that, had indicated that things were normal and previous scans, perhaps a decade or so before, indicated that I had very high bone density.

I remember my doctor at that time telling me that I was going to have no issues with needing to worry about falling down and breaking my wrists when I'm 90 because my bone density was really high. But then menopause came along and a number of years passed and I found myself in this position two and a half years ago where I was looking at the surprising results of low bone density.

So my new doctor at that time made recommendations following tests that were not consistent with my lifestyle and my values. They were not in alignment with my approach to health care. So I declined. And instead I began taking AlgaeCal supplements, along with increasing my weight resistance asanas in my daily yoga practice, daily walks or bike rides or kayaks or snowshoeing or swimming, anything that fit seasonally with where I live and maintaining a healthy, balanced diet.

And I maintained that regime for a period of 15 months before going back for a second DEXA Scan to see if anything had changed. And it had. I was delighted, elated, really, to discover that in all measurable areas there was improvement, particularly in my hips, so that I am almost out of the loop concerning zone and almost back to normal.

And that was in 2020 when the second scan was done. So I'm really feeling very strong and feeling very healthy. I have no issues and I really, of course, maintaining all of the same regime with AlgaeCal and with the exercise, with everything and quite looking forward to my next DEXA Scan, which will be in six months from now.

And I'm not changing anything because I seem to be doing what I should be doing and going in the right direction. So I hope this helps you with your decision making and I thank you.
