Nice 7 year trial of Algae Calcium - 2016

A 7-Year Longitudinal Trial of the Safety and Efficacy of a Vitamin/Mineral Enhanced Plant-Sourced Calcium Supplement
Problems with the study

  1. Not a controlled trial
  2. Great decrease in participants during the trial
  3. Funded by the supplier

But the results are most promising

Background: Calcium is an essential mineral which supports bone health as well as serves as a major
therapeutic intervention that can prevent and delay the incidence of osteoporosis. Multicellular aquatic
plants like Lithothamnion calcareum are a rich source of plant based calcium.

Aims/Objective: To characterize Plant based calcium and Synthetic calcium sources using sophisticated
analytical techniques.

Material and Methods: Plant based Calcium and Synthetic Calcium sources were subjected to
instrumental analysis such as SEM, ICP-OES and XRD, and comparisons were done followed by

Results and Discussion: In this study, three different instrument techniques like SEM, ICP-OES and XRD
were used for the characterization of plant based calcium and synthetic calcium. The results showed that
plant based calcium were smaller isotropic crystals as compared to synthetic calcium crystals which were
larger and anisotropic. Further, in case of XRD results, plant based calcium is shown to possess two 2θ
values, whereas in case of synthetic calcium, it showed a single 2θ value. Further, Magnesium and Boron
content were higher in case of plant based calcium as compared to synthetic calcium.

Conclusion: Both Plant based and Synthetic Calcium can be distinguished using SEM, ICP-OES and XRD
techniques. Outcomes of this study enlightens the probable reasons for enhanced bioavailability in case of
plant based calcium sources as compared to synthetic calcium sources.
