          Comments about Garden of Life Raw Calcium - 150 Vegan Capsules:

          I had heard of Alge-Cal in the spring on the Dr.Oz
          show. When it was available at The Vit. Shop. I was very excited to try it. Much to my dismay, my normally excellent blood pressure , after 2 weeks of taking the Alge-Cal went to 189/98, 175/89 etc. This was on a daily basis. I did some serious thinking to try to find out what had changed to cause this situation. When I was about to take my noon time dosage I thought about it and stopped. With in 2 days my blood pressure was going back to normal. It is possible that I am more sensitive to the product then others. However, if anyone else is experiencing this I would be interrested in hearing about it.

              I like this product and how well it works, but I wish it was only Calcium for my Family Dr. wanted me to take 2000 I.U. of D3 and 1200-1400 Calcium. If I add the Multi Vitamin & the Calcium and the D3 I am way the amount of D3. A bit off trying to get the right amounts. Any suggestions? I do like all the Garden of Life porducts!

                  Comments about Garden of Life Raw Calcium - 150 Vegan Capsules:

                  I've tried several types of calcium supplements and they all have caused problems of constipation. This product does not cause a problem with that or anything else. Very gentle on the system. The downside is the dose of 5 tablets a day. I also take hypothyroid medication and there is a conflict between hypothyroid meds and many calcium supplements. Even though this product contains only raw plant materials, I still take it at least four hours after taking the am thyroid medication, just to be sure. So far, things have been working very well. So pleased to have found this product.

                      Explain, someone, please?

                      Sharon H: Algae based supplements contain a small amount of naturally occurring strontium. The strontium in Vitamin Code Raw Calcium is only 3.8 mg which is an insignificant amount and is probably not an addition, but a natural occurrence in this formula. If you take a separate strontium SUPPLEMENT, which would be a much higher dose, that should come later and not with the calcium. Feb 16, 2014

                      Linda E: I use this brand of calcium supplementation because I trust Jordan Rubin to come up with an effective product. Not sure who told you not to take calcium with strontium, but if it was a healthcare professional who's care you are under, then follow their advice. Feb 24, 2014

                      Sara S asked: The directions are to take three capsules with breakfast and two with lunch. I already get calcium with my milk at breakfast. In order to guarantee absorption, I would like to take them throughout the day. Garden of Life's customer service, however, told me that their products should always be taken exactly according to the label. How do you take the Raw Calcium? Thank you. Jul 19, 2013

                      Sharad Y: Hello,

                      My father has been using Vitamin Code's Bone Growth for almost 1 year and he has seen an improvement in density (0.1, which is a big deal).

                      I guess the improvement has been attributed to the bone growth complex and not just the raw calcium. The complex has strontium as well, which stops bone loss.

                      I am not sure if the improvement can be attributed to Raw Calcium alone. However, this is very good product as it has better absorption into the bones.

                      Janice D: I have been taking this product for about 2 years. My latest bone density scan showed a slight progression of the osteopenia in my spine, but increased mineral bone density in my hip -- about 2.5% in the last 2 years. This is a product that my internist recommended as being the best OTC supplement she has found. She particularly likes the fact that it includes magnesium, which is very important for bone health.

                      Barbara Y: Yes, Ramona, I have had the bone density test. However, I do the complete Grow Bone 2-part program. I have had two bone density tests since I started using this product about 4 years ago and both test showed improvement over the previous scan. I do not take any prescription anti bone loss products.
