Algae-Sourced Calcium offers a natural, plant-based solution for calcium supplementation providing calcium and magnesium derived from red ocean algae harvested in a sustainable and eco-friendly way.
Designed to offer bone health support, Algae-Sourced Calcium provides high levels of key ingredients that support or contribute to the maintenance of normal bones - calcium, magnesium and vitamin D. The algae that is used to derive the calcium is known as Algas Calcareas and studies have found that algae-derived calcium is a more 'bone-friendly' form of calcium as it is easily absorbed by the body and better tolerated than other calcium forms. As it is derived from the sea it naturally contains full spectrum support with a wide range of trace minerals that help support normal bones.
750mg of calcium and 65mg of magnesium, a therapeutic amount to support bone health
1000IU of vitamin D3, the body's preferred form of vitamin D to maximise absorption
Vitamin D contributes to blood calcium levels, the maintenance of normal bones and the absorption and utilisation of calcium within the body
Clinical trials have shown algae-sourced calcium is more effective at supporting bone growth than other calcium forms
Naturally contains 13 essential bone-supporting nutrients including manganese, phosphorus, nickel, boron and strontium for broad spectrum support
Easy to swallow capsules unlike traditional chalky, calcium carbonate supplements
How is Algae-Sourced Calcium sourced and is it sustainable?
The Algas calcareas used in Algae-Sourced Calcium is hand-harvested in an ecologically responsible way.
It washes up on the beach naturally, and is then hand-harvested within 48 hours.
The crop is rotated from beach to beach to be sure not to interfere with the natural cycle of the marine algae meaning Algae-Sourced Calcium offers a natural and eco-friendly way to supplement with key minerals to support bone health.
Why choose Algae-Sourced Calcium?
Algae-Sourced Calcium offers wide spectrum support for bone health unlike traditional calcium-only supplements. Calcium, magnesium and vitamin D3 work together synergistically to create a blend of nutrients which may support the bones. As well as being organic and sustainably sourced, it is a lot easier to take compared to traditional calcium tablets that are often large, chalky tablets that have to be chewed. Clinical studies have shown that this natural form of algae-sourced calcium increases ALP activity - a marker of bone growth - more effectively than calcium carbonate and calcium citrate - see graph below. The vitamin D3 that is also present in Algae-Sourced Calcium is the body's preferred form as it is the same form we naturally produce in response to sunlight so is easier for the body to absorb than vitamin D2.

Who is it suitable for?
Ideal for those who are looking for a natural way to support their bone health. Bone density decreases as we get older, in particular women over the age of 40, pregnant women and those breastfeeding. Algae-Sourced Calcium is also suitable for those who's diet may be lacking in balanced calcium sources such as lactose intolerant people.
What other areas of health are supported?
As well as supporting normal bones, Algae-Sourced Calcium contains minerals that support many other areas of the body. Magnesium is often referred to as the 'spark of life' as it is necessary for energy production in the body, as is calcium as they both contribute to normal energy-yielding metabolism. Calcium, magnesium and vitamin D also contribute to the maintenace of healthy teeth as well as bones and normal muscle function. Vitamin D is well known for its role in supporting immune health and the amount delivered is well above the NRV (Nutrient Reference Value) - the daily amount recommended.

Algae-Sourced Calcium is an exciting plant-based calcium formula source from red ocean algae. It is a natural source of both calcium and magnesium. Vitamin D has been added to complete this synergistic blend, designed to support and contribute to the maintenance of normal bones and teeth.
3 capsules a day provide 750mg of calcium, 65mg of magnesium and 1000iu of vitamin D3.
Clinical studies have shown that algae-derived calcium is a more “bone friendly” form of calcium, outperforming other forms of calcium.
Many calcium supplements are big, hard tablets, that can be challenging to swallow. Algae-Sourced Calcium is consumed in easy-to-swallow capsules.
• Calcium is necessary for the maintenance of both bones and teeth.
• Magnesium and vitamin D contribute to the maintenance of bones and teeth.
• Calcium and magnesium both contribute to normal energy-yielding metabolism.
• Calcium, magnesium and vitamin D all contribute to the maintenance of normal muscular function.
• These nutrients also play an important role in cell division, meaning they’re important for every single cell in the body!
Algae-Sourced Calcium may be indicated for those who may be concerned they are not consuming enough dietary calcium, those who wish to support their bone health, or those who are pregnant.
