                Comments about Garden of Life Raw Calcium (Algaecal) - 120 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!

                        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.

                            Plant based product so hopefully more easily absorbed than mineral bases calcium products.

                            Best Answer: The box does not say where the magnesium comes from. I would check the gardenoflife web site.

                            I was told to not take calcium of any form along with strontium, because they compete with each other. This product contains both calcium AND strontium and all it says is to take 3 in the morning and 2 at lunch time.
                            Explain, someone, please?
                            Linda W on Feb 16, 2014
                            Best Answer: 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.

                            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.

                            Have you had a bone density test after taking this product? Did you improve bone density?

                            Best Answer: 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.
