Limestone and marble are the source of more than 95% of traditional calcium supplements
(PRWEB) April 11, 2012
Vancouver , BC: AlgaeCal Inc., the maker of AlgaeCal® plant-based calcium, announced today that one of the larger syndicated TV talk shows will be recommending their marine algae calcium as the best choice for supporting bone health. The show will air this Thursday, April 12th, revealing a quiet revolution in the calcium supplement market.
It is a little known fact that up until now, almost every calcium supplement on the market is made from inedible rocks. "Limestone and marble are the source of more than 95% of traditional calcium supplements", says Dean Neuls, CEO of AlgaeCal. "Two major studies recently published in the British Medical Journal are showing the dangers of taking rock calcium supplements may be outweighing the benefits. These same articles point out that calcium from foods are considered safe. AlgaeCal is a whole plant milled into a powder - essentially a food calcium that fits into a pill. Doctors disagree on many subjects, but they all agree on one thing. It is best to get your calcium from a food such as plants."
The TV airing is expected to trigger interest from other media sources as the calcium supplementation market is very large and very confused at the moment.
AlgaeCal® is a unique algas calcareas plant calcium. The only algae calcium with human clinicals showing greater effect on your bones than other forms tested. AlgaeCal is also the only algae calcium shown to be safe for pregnant women, nursing mothers and their babies and is the only algae calcium approved for sale in the USA with an FDA New Dietary Ingredient Number. AlgaeCal is also the only certified organic calcium source available (USDA NOP).
