AlgaeCal Calcium Supplement Now Has Twice the Vitamin D

December 18, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Health News
Las Vegas Nevada, December 18, 2007 – AlgaeCal International, producers of AlgaeCal Plus calcium supplement has now doubled the amount of vitamin D contained in their natural bone health formula. AlgaeCal Plus now contains double the amount of vitamin D, giving a very generous 1600 IU of vitamin D3 in a daily serving.

AlgaeCal Plus calcium supplement is the world’s only pure plant source calcium and mineral complex, all derived from a South American marine algae, called Algas Calcareas. AlgaeCal Plus was introduced as a natural alternative to a calcium market that is dominated by calcium carbonate (limestone) and laboratory made calcium forms.

Mounting evidence suggests that, in addition to vitamin D’s well known roles in skin, bone, and muscle physiology, vitamin D may play a crucial role in the prevention of cancer, and much more. Decreased vitamin D concentrations have been associated with an increased risk of developing autoimmune diseases, such as multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, and even type 1 diabetes. This convincing evidence has lead to discussions of increasing the RDI levels for vitamin D. The Current recommended daily intake for vitamin D is only 400 IU, where in the past few years there have been several studies showing vast health benefits with a daily intake of up to 2000 IU.

Dean Neuls, CEO of AlgaeCal International says “AlgaeCal is always trying to stay ahead of the curve with the emerging science around bone health, so we wanted to lead the charge and increase the amount of vitamin D found in our formula now, rather than wait for the government to raise the RDI for vitamin D intake”

“With the recent improvements made to our AlgaeCal Plus formula, we believe we definitely have the most well rounded product available on the market, people have been crying out for a natural osteoporosis and osteopenia treatment, and now they have it” Adds Neuls.

The differences between the original AlgaeCal Plus and the new version 2 formula include:

• twice the amount of vitamin D3
• increased vitamin K2 as MK7
• increased magnesium (magnesium carbonate)
• includes Boron (FruiteX B® OsteoBoron™)
• added vitamin C (calcium ascorbate)
• now available in vegetable capsules
