@criss It sounds as if Lara Pizzorno may have an interest in Algae Cal. Do you know that she does not? Obviously if a person has a stake in it then they are going to recommend it highly.
I am still in the process of figuring out what course I will take. I have a DEXA at the end of the month and then appointments with two endocrinologists about my osteoporosis. I have heard from other sources that Algae Cal is no better than taking the recommended supplements like Calcium, Vitamin D, and possibly K and Boron. I have seen Strontium not recommended.
I am not an expert in this area at all, like all of us, I am just trying to make sure I have the most accurate information which can be difficult because there are those who favor drugs and those who vehemently oppose them. I was prepared to start with something but then it occurred to me that I tend to have negative side-effects very often from drugs. Knowing the potential side-effects of these drugs is pretty frightening.
I have this habit of not really looking into side-effects so then when one presents itself I am perplexed not knowing what could be causing whatever my problem is. That happened recently when I complained to a friend about my legs aching badly. She immediately asked me if I was on a statin which I had started a couple of months previous to that. Sure enough, that was what was causing the problem. I explain this because I would not want it to be thought that I read the side-effects and then immediately imagine that I have them.
