Description

Osteocare Original | 30 or 90 Tablets

No.1 calcium formula based on scientific research

The Osteocare formulation is based on the very latest international findings on the role of nutrients in normal bone health, as well as multiple large-scale scientific studies in the past 30 years. It is UK’s No.1 calcium formula for women and men of all ages.

Bone Health

Bone health is important for us all. With Osteocare, get extra support for entire family. Specially formulated source of Calcium in Osteocare helps maintain normal bones combined with important co-factors including Vitamin D, Zinc and Magnesium. Osteocare is formulated for long-term use and can be taken for as long as required.

Improved formula with vegan vitamin D3 and co-factors

This improved formula has been developed in line with the latest ‘Vitamin D and Bone Health’ guidelines (ROS, 2018) for regular maintenance intake, providing 25μg of vitamin D3* alongside magnesium, calcium, zinc, plus four additional supporting nutrients.

Osteocare contains the preferred D3 form of Vitamin D. Vitamin D3, also known as colecalciferol, the form of vitamin D that is produced by the skin on exposure to sunlight. D3 is the preferred form of vitamin D because it is the specific form made in the human body and therefore more effective than D2 which is found in some supplements. Vitabiotics’ nutritional experts have formulated Osteocare Original with vitamin D3 derived from a natural vegan plant source (Algal).

Calcium is important for everyone

Ensuring an adequate intake of calcium is vital for men and women of all ages, as evidence suggests that healthy practices early in life, including the adequate consumption of calcium and trace elements, contribute to normal bone health and optimal bone mineralisation. Peak bone mass, obtained during childhood and adolescent growth is known to be of major importance in maintaining bones later in life.

Calcium is vital for older women

Both sexes lose bone mass during their lifetime but after the menopause women usually lose bone mass much faster than men. Postmenopausal women have an increased risk of bone loss for three reasons:

Bone mineral content tends to be lower in women than in men
Dietary calcium intake may decrease with age
The rate of bone loss accelerates at menopause

Osteocare Original FAQ

Q: Why has Osteocare Original been developed?

A: Osteocare is scientifically formulated, and developed by experts, and each ingredient is included on the basis of research evidence. Bone is living tissue and to help keep it healthy, you must have the right nutrients in your daily diet. Calcium contributes to the maintenance of normal bone health, along with vitamin D which contributes to normal absorption and utilisation of calcium in the body. Zinc and magnesium are also essential factors in normal bone health and unfortunately, many people, especially those cutting down on their dairy products, may not be getting all the calcium they need.

Q: When is Osteocare Original recommended?

A: Research shows the earlier both men and women receive a good supply of these nutrients the better. Getting enough calcium is especially important: For growing children, throughout pregnancy & breast-feeding, during and after the menopause, for elderly men and women, for athletes and those individuals avoiding food products containing calcium. Osteocare is formulated for long-term use and can be taken for as long as required, and is also suitable for vegans & vegetarians. Osteocare Original is officially approved by both the Vegan Society and the Vegetarian Society.

Q: Can Osteocare be used simultaneously with medication?

A: Generally, Osteocare can be taken alongside medications because it contains only moderate levels of minerals and vitamin D. For specific advice on taking Osteocare with medicines, we recommend that you contact your doctor or pharmacist first.

Q: How and when should Osteocare be used?

A: Osteocare is available in both tablet and liquid form. The liquid version is ideal for those who have difficulty swallowing tablets, and for younger children over 3 years of age. Osteocare tablets – Two tablets daily (or one tablet twice daily) is recommended before or with meals, with water or a cold drink. Swallow without chewing. Always ensure that Osteocare is taken with plenty of liquid to wash down the tablet. We do not recommend chewing the tablets because they have not been formulated as chewable preparations.

Q: What is the source of calcium used in Osteocare Original?

A: The calcium in Osteocare is in the form of calcium carbonate, which provides the highest concentration of elemental calcium possible in a supplement. This means that Osteocare can provide the full NRV of calcium and other minerals without the need to take lots of tablets. The calcium carbonate used is of high pharmaceutical grade from a natural source. To prevent possible contamination with metals such as lead, oyster calcium and bone-dolomite have not been included in the Osteocare formulation.

Q: Can calcium supplements like Osteocare Original cause kidney stones?

A: It is important to select a calcium supplement such as Osteocare , which includes calcium in combination with other synergistic co-factors such as magnesium. The presence of the mineral magnesium, as well as contributing to the maintenance of normal bones, also contributes to normal protein synthesis and electrolyte balance.

Q: Are Osteocare tablets absorbed by the body as quickly as the liquid version?

A: Osteocare tablets are tested to ensure the correct disintegration and dissolution profiles. Strict pharmaceutical disintegration tests, under the same comparative acidic conditions of the stomach, have shown the tablets to disintegrate between 6 to 15 mins (on average). Once the tablets have disintegrated the nutrients in tablet form will be absorbed at approximately the same rate as the liquid version.

Q: Is Osteocare Original recommended with any other Vitabiotics product?

A: Osteocare has been carefully formulated so that it can be used in combination with any other product in Vitabiotics multivitamin and mineral product range, or other food supplements such as garlic, fish oil etc. However, for maximum results we recommend Osteocare Original is taken at a separate time of the day, at least an hour apart from your main Vitabiotics multivitamin supplement.
