EZorb Calcium
Jun 29, 2005
I have now been using this product (supposedly the most absorbable calcium) for 3 months. I, like many, have trouble absorbing calcium. I think something must be different about this product because prior to using it my nails were always very thin and split unmercifully. I'm happy to say that I now have strong and decent looking nails. This is the only change I have made in the products I use, so I attribute it to this calcium supplement. Just thought I would share. There is information available at their website.

I'm glad that your getting positive effects from the calcium. What type of calcium is it? Citrate, etc? Is it prescription?

It is not a prescription. You can get all that information . . . and more at their web site. Do a a search on the name or Elixir Industry.

I have started EZORB and was wondering if anyone has had a bone scan and if it showed any inprovement. I hope it lives up to all the hype on-line. I take predisone for Lupus but was hoping this would slow the osteoporosis down. Can't tale fosamax or actonel and worried about the black box warning on other meds.

I've been on EZorb for about a year and a half. This product is godsend! My tscore went from -3.21 to -2.46 for the lumbar spine and from -2.82 to -1.93 for the hip within a year. I don't care what everybody else says this product rocks!

I'm[I] so[/I] glad to hear this! I started EZorb about 4 months ago and am not due for a Dexa for another 9 months. But a change I [I]have[/I] noticed is that my fingernails are now strong and I actually [I]have[/I] fingernails. Prior to using this product they were thin and would constantly split. I'm hoping it is having a similar affect on my bones.

I'm glad to hear positive T-scores. I have only been on E-Zorb for a couple of months but I went to my doctor last week and he has been wanting me to start Forteo. I started to tell him I'am trying E-zorb and natural progesterone cream and before I could get it out he said "Blah, blah, blah! That is what he though about going natural. I know being on prednisone will be against me but I'm hoping to just keep my scores from getting worse.

I think that if a doctor said that to me I would be quickly looking for a new doctor. It is very demeaning not to have one's views respected.

Amen! He's welcome to his opinion, of course, and totally free to disagree with me BUT he darn well better treat me and my opinions with some respect!!!

I'm sorry to report that it is rather expensive, I guess. "Expensive" is subjective. Right? But that would be mostly in the beginning because they recommend that you double the dose for the first few months. I purchase the combo package i.e., 2 bottles of caps and l bottle of powder for (I believe) $103. But after the recommended double dosing period, it actually isn't that much for what you get and should last for quite awhile. When it comes to my bones (and health in general) I'm willing to spend a little more if it means avoiding more dire problems 'down the line'.

I'm sorry for your situation, but will hope that you might find a way to try this, if you think it might be beneficial to your situation.

All the best!

Cloudancin, I understand your concern about your spine. My husband has.d had similar surgery but with Isola instrumentation: 2 stainless steel rods vertically the entire lumbar area and two stainless steel crossbars plus the necessary screws. He is 67. He had the surgery at Mayo in MN.

He's 5'8", thin build, ex-smoker, likes his beer. I managed to get him to at least have the LifeLine screening for osteoporosis with the heel ultrasound which indicated he "might" be at risk for osteoporosis but his doctor just pooh-poohed the results and said he was silly to have paid for that when he could have had a DEXA and insurance pay for it. BUT despite the screening results his doctor didn't send him for the DEXA and didn't even keep the screening results in my husband's chart but sent the results back home with him (one way to CHA!). I've suggested by letter that his doctor order a DEXA for him but his comment to my husband was if Mayo thought it might be necessary due to the surgery then let Mayo order the DEXA. I never said that Mayo suggested the scan!!! Just that since he had had the surgery at Mayo and had those rods and screws in his vertebrae, wouldn't it be a good idea to have a DEXA done given his age, build, etc., etc.

So, I sit and worry about him, but have no input. Obviously, we do NOT go to the same doctor. His doctor is stuck in the HMO/PPO mind set mode. You would think each procedure he ordered came out of his own pocket.

My apologies for the vent. But I do understand your worry and concern. Good luck and God bless.

Thank you for the support as I thought the "Blah,Blah, remark was out of line too. I will be changing Doctors after my next dexa scan in 3-4 months. I'm so glad to hear positive results from Ezorb. I know the prednisone is eating up my bones but need it for my Lupus.

I hope this works out to be a wonderful product for all of us who can't take the fosomax, forteo etc.

It sounds great for osteoporosis, but has anyone used it for bone spurs? Their website has great info in that area as well, but I would like to hear from a satisfied bone spur customer.
