I’m the “the Inside Out Girl” and there’s nothing more thrilling than seeing real time results that I’m changing on the inside. It was just over one year ago that I began a 12 month journey to put AlgaeCal and its Bone Builder Pack Guarantee to the test. It’s not often that I’m given the opportunity to empirically prove that a product I love and believe in does what it says. It takes a strong brand to deliver on a strong promise.

AlgaeCal told me that in one year of using their Bone Builder Pack, I would gain bone density and stronger bones, at an age where women are losing bone density … every year. In order to do so, I had to get a baseline of where I was … I was fortunate to do something that not everyone gets to do … test and see my own skeleton! It’s called a Dexascan.

The journey began by visiting Dr. Susan Nattrass, the Director and Primary Investigator for Puget Sound Bone Density & Clinical Research Center. Susan’s list of credentials in the analysis of bone density, osteoporosis, and women’s bone health are second to none. She’s a masterful researcher and competitor … a six time Olympian (Yeah, that’s right … every four years!) and seven time World Champion trapshooter.

I had my first Dexascan last January and went back this January for a second scan as a way of putting AlgaeCal’s Stronger Bones Guarantee to the test. I was delighted to return to Susan’s expert care as I always learn something new from her. This time, I was sharing my 30 day challenge and cold water plunges, and this crazy idea to swim across the Puget Sound, and began telling her that I was so inspired by Diana Nyad, having recently watched the movie, Nyad, starring Annette Bening. Of course, she immediately left me speechless by sharing that Diana is a good friend of hers.

Grinning, I hopped back onto the Dexascan to see how the Inside Out Girl did over the past year. Let me preface this by saying that this journey with AlgaeCal has been a deeply personal experience. As I shared last year, I come from a family with a long line of osteoporosis and fragile, brittle bones. I watched my mother, grandmother and grandfather all become completely bedridden following falls that left them unable to walk. That was a big part of the reason I consciously chose a very different and holistic path over 30 years ago.

I believe in leading a healthy and happy life for as long as possible. The best way to do that was to make different choices. At 62, I can keep up with most 20 and 30 year old’s. My daughter loves to call me Benjamin Button. Yes, I’ve aged well and it has little to do with my genetics. It has everything to do with my choices. And, when you see my results, you’ll understand why AlgaeCal is my one and only choice when it comes to building stronger bones. It’s important to know that AlgaeCal is the only calcium supplement in the world clinically supported to increase bone density.

After Susan was done with calibrating my bones via the Dexascan, it was time to see my results. During and after menopause, the average woman loses 4% of her bone density per year. At 62, I was over the moon to find out that my bone density increased over 3% by taking AlgaeCal Bone Builder Pack twice a day for the last year!

I maintained my usual healthy lifestyle, but I want to stress that the only change in my regimen was AlgaeCal! Here’s the thing, I thought I was doing all the right things to build stronger bones. I exercised almost every single day. I lift weights. I do weight bearing activities regularly. I follow a high quality diet incorporating bone healthy foods that include homemade bone broth, salmon and protein. The one thing I wasn’t doing was taking a calcium supplement. Choosing to add AlgaeCal’s Bone Builder Pack to my daily routine made perfect sense. Plus, AlgaeCal’s guarantee made it that much more enticing.

While the average postmenopausal woman is literally shrinking, I am growing on the inside via stronger, healthier bones. I get really excited by news like this. To me, bone health is sexy. And, it’s satisfying. It also keeps me in a fierce and fearless mindset knowing that I can continue pushing the boundaries on what it means to be 62. Research shows that many people over 50 and 60 are fearful of falling which prevents them from staying healthy by doing their favorite activities.

Strong bones make for a strong mind. I don’t believe in worrying. I believe in staying healthy, strong, and fit. Strong bones are like a permission slip to play harder! When I think back to my baseline scan results one year ago, Susan let me know that I was developing osteopenia in the L4 area of my spine. Osteopenia is a precursor to osteoporosis. It’s like a blinking red light that I was going in the wrong direction and needed to do something about it, especially given my family history. So, I took action … with AlgaeCal.

One year later, Susan delivered the incredible news that my low bone density was gone! Why? I’ve been taking AlgaeCal Bone Builder Pack faithfully twice a day while also leading a healthy active lifestyle along with a nutrient dense diet. I knew I was on a good path. When I found out that the low bone density was gone, kicked to the curb by AlgaeCal, I was floored. I’ll be taking AlgaeCal’s Bone Bone Builder Pack for life. And, I’m on a mission to spread the word and to get every woman over 50 to take it too! And, to put AlgaeCal to the test, like I did. After all, that’s why they offer a money back guarantee. Trust me, it will be the one time you’ll be happy you didn’t get your money back!

Something important for women to know is that being female puts you at risk of developing osteoporosis and broken bones. Here are some facts: Of the estimated 10 million Americans with osteoporosis, about eight million or 80% are women. Even more, approximately one in two women over age 50 will break a bone because of osteoporosis. Women tend to have smaller, thinner bones than men. And then there’s the Estrogen factor, a hormone in women that protects bones, decreases sharply when women reach menopause, which can cause bone loss. This is why the chance of developing osteoporosis increases as women reach menopause.

Menopause is a time for action! There’s no better time to begin taking AlgaeCal’s Bone Builder Pack than when most women are losing bone. You’ll be so glad to know that you’re bucking the statistics and building stronger bones. After all, stronger bones make for a stronger life. Begin by visiting AlgaeCal and taking the Bone Health Quiz. You’ll be glad you did.

A huge thank you to the team at AlgaeCal for the privilege of partnering with you over the last year and allowing me to publicly put your Bone Builder Pack Guarantee to the test. You passed with flying colors and now have the Inside Out Girl seal of approval!



Catherine this is so valuable! I love that you gave us a years worth of research on AlgeaCal! To be able to build bone density is wowing me!


OMG, that’s amazing. I love hearing this news and I need to take this for sure.
