I think the bone supplement recently recommended by Dr Oz is AlgaeCal plus.

Dr. Oz is a nice enough guy, but he's too quick to declare something as fact based on just one scientific study. He's also too quick to talk as if only one magic supplement will do the trick, when there are many equally effective supplements out there.

For bone health, you need Calcium, vitamin D to help you absorb the calcium, and protein.

The key is to finding a form of calcium that won't constipate you (calcium carbonate is never a good form of calcium to take). Anything in the form of a hard pill isn't good, because it's hard for your system to break down. (That's why anything you get at a supermarket or chain drug store isn't very effective.) A clear capsule with powder inside is a better bet, and there are many brands like this available at places like GNC or any health food store.


If you can't find a calcium supplement like this that's paired with vitamin D, then you can buy the D separately, either as an oil-filled type of capsule or a dry type in a clear capsule. Drug store vitamin D capsules are fine, in this case.

As for protein, you should pretty much try to get that from your diet. Your doctor can recommend dietary sources, and there's info on the internet as well. Just don't fall into any fad diet traps! :)

Another very important thing for bone health is any sort of impact exercise, like walking. It stimulates your body to produce more bone. A trampoline won't work, as that softens the impact too much.

Good luck!

Dr. Oz has had a couple of shows recently that were devoted to building strong bones. The supplement he mentioned is Algaecal (made from marine plants in South America). Dosage: 1 capsule 3 times per day.


Hope this answers your question! Blessings.
