Stephanie Bain - Edinburgh, UK

Hi, I am a 55-year-old therapist and fit and healthy Pilates teacher. Every 2 years I have a DEXA scan. I have now had 3 DEXA scans (2007, 2009, 2011). Until 2011, I was diagnosed with bone loss. Alarmingly from my last scan in Oct 2011, I showed a 6.3% drop in bone density in the lumbar spine. The calcium supplements and weight-bearing Pilates exercises had had no effect.

Then I discovered and started to take AlgaeCal 3 months ago and already I notice and feel the difference in my bones as various Pilates exercises I teach and practice are no longer causing slight discomfort which I had previously experienced. Interestingly my hair always very fine and fly away has strengthened and thickened. Could this be due to some of the minerals in the AlgaeCal? I look forward to the next scan due in 2013 as I am hopeful there will be an increase in bone density, certainly some reversal.

**Increased bone density results are consistent with 3 published studies. Typical bone density increases ranged from 1-4% within 6 months to one year. See studies here. Individual results may vary.
