Adequate calcium intake throughout life, as part of a well-balanced diet and regular exercise, may reduce the risk of osteoporosis. Alive!® plant source calcium provides 1,000 mg of calcium (100% DV), vitamin C, vitamin D3, vitamin K2, magnesium and supportive minerals.
MAX Absorption
Vitamin D3 enhances calcium absorption and utilization.*

Magnesium and vitamin C help maintain bone density.*
Gets to Bones, Not Arteries
Vitamin K2 (MK-7) directs calcium to the bones where it’s needed most, and away from arteries.*
Additional Minerals
Strontium, vanadium and silica assist calcium in promoting healthy bones.*
Plant Source Calcium Alive!®
Calcium is derived from Lithothamnion (calcified red algae seaweed sustainably harvested from pristine Icelandic waters), kale, spinach and collard greens.
Easy to Digest & Utilize
While many calcium supplements are sourced from limestone rock or animal bones, Alive! Calcium provides calcium and trace minerals that may be easier for the body to digest, absorb and utilize.
Fast Dissolving
Alive! Calcium tablets dissolve quickly to help ensure a maximum level of nutrients are available for absorption.

I recommend the ALIVE plant based calcium tablet over the traditional ground shellfish formulas.

Beginning senior with osteopenia
I take two tablets daily. I am taking them because of having osteopenia. I am experiencing constipation since I starting to take them. They recommend 3 tablets a day. Iâ??m going to hang in there taking 2. I take 3 flaxseed gel tabs daily to compensate the constipation problem. If it continues causing this issue, I will stop talking them. Itâ??s been 3 weeks. Not happy ð???

Hip bones improved GREATLY!
I had a test for bone density and my left hip was especially low. No surprise, it hurt with GREAT pain when I exercised on a thick rubber mat over carpet. I would recommend this formula to everyone! It strengthened that hip and other bones in this 60+ year old with Multiple sclerosis after the 1st bottle!!

I have a question. I am taking Alive Calcium, which contains Strontium. My doctor prescribed Alendronate Sodium, which I am also taking. Is it safe or approved to take both of these during treatment for osteoporosis?
