The Benefits of Algae Calcium
Made from Aquamin® Calcium, Algae Calcium is much easier for your body to recognize and absorb than the calcium sourced from limestone – basically rocks – which many supplements use. Not only that, Algae Calcium also provides vitamin D3 and vitamin K2 which bring the calcium directly to your bones where you need it.
Natural Marine Calcium is Better Absorbed by Your Bones
Algae Calcium is produced from Aquamin® Calcium, a natural marine mineral complex sustainably harvested from pristine shores along the Icelandic coastline and provides total 74 essential trace elements including bioactive calcium, magnesium.
The best time to build strong bones is when you are young. In fact, if you don’t get enough dietary calcium every day, your body will take calcium away from your bones. By getting calcium naturally from plants – rather than from limestone, the source of many calcium supplements – your body recognizes it immediately as a natural food and absorbs it better. With its unique porous honeycomb structure, the increased surface area of this plant-based calcium makes it easier to digest and absorb than its rock-derived counterpart. Backed by more than 30 peer-reviewed studies supporting its unique health-promoting properties, Aquamin® has proved superior to standard calcium carbonate in both calcium uptake and retention.
The Vitamin D and K Difference
Algae Calcium not only provides the natural potency of plant-based calcium, we added natural vitamin D3 which helps absorption into your arteries, and also natural vitamin K2 which not only brings the calcium from your arteries to your bones where you need it, but also cleans up any calcium deposits in your arteries. A variety of different studies have shown that long-term supplementation of the MenaQ7® vitamin K2 found in Algae Calcium significantly promotes joint health*.
Algae Calcium Helps with Minerals Deposit
Sourced from ocean algae instead of limestone, Algae Calcium has shown significant increase in bone metabolism and higher deposits of calcium*. In addition, Algae Calcium has also increased deposit of other important minerals you need for optimal bone formation including magnesium, manganese and iron*.
Vitamin D3 Enhances Bone Forming in the Body
Studies have shown that vitamin D has enhanced the bone alkaline phosphatase (BAP) activity, which reflects the biosynthetic activity of the bone-forming cells and bone metabolism in the body, when taken with Algae Calcium *. The bone forming activities was increased when subjects were supplemented with Algae Calcium daily*.
Vitamin K2 Formula that Direct Calcium to Bones Instead of Arteries
Vitamin K2 is essential for building and maintaining strong bones because it brings the calcium from blood vessels to the bones and avoid calcium deposits stored in the arteries. Studies have shown that long term supplementation of vitamin K2 may improve bone mineral density and bone strength*.
Mini tablet for easy use
As supplement bioavailability is highly dependent on how much can be absorbed at a given time, we split the daily dose into 4 tablets for optimal uptake. Study shows that calcium absorption is highest in doses ≤500 mg. As a result, our tablets are small, easy to swallow and absorb, as well as being free from sugar, artificial coloring, flavoring and synthetic preservatives.
Take 2-4 tablets daily with a meal
