A side question - why are you supplementing calcium? Are you aware of the research in the last few years (actually spearheaded in New Zealand) indicating that supplementation does not reduce osteoporosis and may increase cardiovascular risk? And the traditional "target" was derived on shaky evidence? We don't routinely supplement any more unless the diet overall is woefully inadequate.

So glad you are sharing some information about red algae calcium. You may have already heard about this, but some other ways to stop bone loss is doing strength training and I just saw the other day that fasting is starting to show some improvements. One woman had a dexa scan before and one three months later after fasting and she showed a good increase and was now in osteopenia.
There may be some more information you may find useful in the Primer and the Wiki.
And if you feel comfortable feel free to share your story in the Our Stories forum.
Again welcome to the community!

I have a 25% bone loss and was told recently to continue with calcium supplements by a specialized treatment group for Osteoporosis at Kaiser Permanente. However, they told me that I should try a "premium source" of calcium like Red Algae. I've read studies about red algae calcium and it does increase osteoblasts and bone density if taken. Some suggest taking it with Strontium to maximize the benefits.

I took 4000iu vitamin D3, Alpha GPC, PQQ and Meriva 500 (Curcumin), and for some reason within a day I got abdomen area cramps and when pressing the appendix directly a sharp pain. I immediately stopped all supplementation and it went away after 3-4 days.
I searched google for supplement side effects appendix' but couldn't see any relevant answers.
