Why Plant Calcium is Better for Bone Health!

This week, we’re discussing the benefits of organic plant calcium as a supplement for bone density – and why it’s better than the calcium found in most supplements.

Many of us may not realize that the calcium found in most supplements actually comes from rocks, like limestone. In fact, its estimated over 90% of supplements contain inorganic calcium from rocks. But here's the thing, our bodies are not designed to digest and utilize minerals from rocks effectively because we don’t eat rocks.

That's where plant calcium comes in. Plants have the unique ability to convert inorganic minerals into organic minerals that our bodies can readily absorb and use. This process is called chelation. But it's not just about the calcium itself, it's also about the supporting nutrients that come with it. When we consume nutrients derived from plants, we also get other essential cofactors that our bodies need for optimal functioning.

One specific source of plant calcium, called AlgaeCal, has been shown to be a game-changer when it comes to promoting bone density and maintaining strong, healthy bones. AlgaeCal is derived from a marine algae plant and offers a rich source of trace minerals, including calcium, magnesium, silica, and more. Unlike calcium from rocks, the calcium and other minerals in AlgaeCal are already in an organic form that is easily digestible by our bodies.

In this episode, we'll dive deeper into the science behind plant calcium, its advantages over rock calcium, and the impressive results that users of AlgaeCal have experienced. We'll also address common questions, such as why the recommended daily allowance for calcium is lower for AlgaeCal compared to other sources, and why combining dietary calcium with a supplement can help meet our calcium needs.
