Has Anyone Experienced Success In Treating Osteoporosis With Plant Based Calcium Supplements?

Has Anyone Experienced Success In Treating Osteoporosis With Plant Based Calcium Supplements?

Has anyone taken supplements such as Raw Calcium by Garden of Life or New Chapter Bone Strength?

I buy organic eggs, boil the empty shells, dry them out totally, under a grill or in the oven for a couple of minutes. Grind to a fine powder. Walla!! Natural calcium. Sprinkle it in curries or whatever you want. xx

I've been taking Garden of Life Raw Calcium for almost 1 year. I purchase it at my local Pharmaca, but it is also on Pharmaca website as well. I also do aerobics with weights (probably not as many times weekly as I should.) Hopefully, I can have a bone density scan this summer to see if this natural treatment is working for me. I strayed from Osteopenia to Osteoporosis while taking Fosamax so I totally stopped it last year and opted for the natural, Raw Calcium.

There are vegetable based Calciums that contain Vitamin K-2. This vitamin directs Calcium to your bones and NOT to your heart, thus preventing calcification of heart muscle and arteries. Unfortunately, must medical doctors don’t have this information about supplements and vitamins. A good supplement pharmacy, like Pharmaca, have employees who know more about natural remedies and how they work. Don’t let your MD discourage you from taking Calcium—just find one with K-2 and Google the research in how it works.

I take New Chapter for Bone Health plus a Strontium from The Vitamin Shoppe. I’m doing this for about a year but won’t know until next years DEXA if it’s working. I just refuse to take those meds for it....
