Maximus Bone Details

maximus bone petsCalcium alone does not grows bone!

Calcium alone is not the "magic bullet" that guards against bone loss. Bones are composed of 73 minerals. Calcium is just one of the minerals your pet’s bones needs. They also need zinc ... magnesium ... vanadium ... strontium ... silica ... boron ... and more. Each mineral plays a unique role in your pet’s bone's health. So, today's emphasis on just one mineral is a big mistake. Without other minerals present, calcium can't even do it's job!
Your Pet’s Bones Need 13 Minerals...


USDA Organic certified. No side effect.

Where most common side effect of feeding normal calcium supplement to your pets are constipation, bloating, gastritis, lost of appetite and kidney stones. Maximus Bone AlgaeCal®. It is a plant based bone supplement. Not a calcium supplement, BONE supplement. It is derived from a plant algae. This algae absorbs nutrients from the ocean - much the way vegetables take up minerals from the soil. But marine algae minerals are much more concentrated than plants minerals. Algas calcareas (Maximus Bone AlgaeCal) absorbs all 13 bone-building nutrients right from the ocean. And that includes calcium. Maximus Bone, AlgaeCal® is USDA Organic certified, means you can rely on this ingredient to be pure, clean and chemical free so that it nourishes your pet’s bones and feeds your pet’s organs.

Maximus Bone, AlgaeCal is the planet's only certified organic calcium source! USDA Organic means you can rely on this ingredient to be pure, clean and chemical free so that it nourishes your pet’s bones and feeds your pet’s organs, without having the risk of reported fur loss, weight loss, stomach upset, diarrhea, constipation and lost of appetite.


5 stages bone fracture healingThe 5 stages of a bone fracture healing

A bone fracture—while varying in severity—is the clinical term for a broken bone. The force exerted on the bone before the fracture was stronger than the bone itself. Soon after, the bone undergoes a natural healing process. Here are the 5 stages of the fracture healing process:

Stage 1: Hematoma Formation During the break, blood vessels are damaged as well. This creates a hematoma: clotted blood that swells inside the bone tissue.

Stage 2: Granulation Tissue Formation (Inflammation) Hours later, the hematoma is reabsorbed while being replaced by inflammatory molecules. These molecules act to clean out dead bone and prepare the fracture site for tissue, cartilage and bone formation. A rebuilding of vessels and cells affected by the fracture.

Stage 3: Callus Formation A soft callus is formed. The callus is made of newly formed osteoblasts (bone-building cells) and osteoclasts (bone-resorbing cells), the two types of cells needed for your natural bone remodeling process. Capillaries and supporting blood vessels connect into the callus as the rebuilding process continues.

Stage 4: Consolidation The new bone built to this point is a softer bone called woven bone, but during Consolidation, the woven bone is replaced with a stronger type, lamellar bone.

Stage 5: Bone Remodelling The lamellar bone ultimately fills in the fracture site and aligns in direction of the external forces on the bone. This stage can last anywhere from a few months to a few years.

Maximus Bone - more bone cell friendly!


x ray dog bonesStudy provides evidence that AlgaeCal® calcium powder is a more “bone cell friendly” form of calcium. After more than 80 years of traditional limestone based calcium supplements, this study shows that a more bio-accessible plant form is now available. Researchers from the Harvard Medical School and University of Connecticut, collaborated on this landmark study which was In direct head-to-head tests, the scientists compared the effects of AlgaeCal® with the two top-sellers, calcium carbonate and calcium citrate. Focused on the proliferation, mineralization and oxidative stress in cultured human osteoblast cells, the study results showed that AlgaeCal®, increased alkaline phosphatase activity 200 percent more effectively than calcium carbonate and 250 percent better than calcium citrate. In addition, AlgaeCal outperformed calcium carbonate and calcium citrate by 300 and 400 percent respectively on DNA synthesis – the ability of these osteoblasts to produce new bone building cells.

Maximus Bone is made of 100% AlgaeCal®.


Safety and Toxicological Evaluation of AlgaeCal, A Novel Plant-based Calcium

In preparation for GRAS (Generally Recognized as Safe) status which AlgaeCal® achieved in May 2010, an excellent safety profile was established through testing. Six different safety studies have been conducted on AlgaeCal in the United States and Europe and combined into one manuscript which has been published in the peer-reviewed journal, Toxicology Mechanisms and Actions. These studies include one which tested the toxicity of AlgaeCal® on pregnant and nursing female rats.
