Osteocare Chewable

 

Osteocare® Chewable

 

Osteocare® is the UK's no.1 bone health formula and has been scientifically developed on the basis of the very latest research to provide a rich source of calcium and co-factors including vitamin D which helps with the normal absorption of calcium by the body.

 

Osteocare® Chewable contains the preferred D3 form of Vitamin D. Vitamin D3, also known as cholecalciferol, is 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.

Calcium plus co-factors

Osteocare® Chewable provides 100% RDA (Recommended Daily Allowance) of calcium carefully combined with co-factors including vitamin D, zinc and magnesium which help to maintain normal bone health.

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. The UK Department of Health recommends that people aged 65 years and over should take a daily supplement of 10mcg of vitamin D.

Calcium is vital for older women

Balanced with Magnesium

The calcium in Osteocare® has always been balanced with magnesium. We believe that, based on a wealth of international published research, calcium should always be supplied with vitamin D and balanced with meaningful levels of magnesium, as the magnesium to calcium ratio in the body is vital. Magnesium contributes to electrolyte balance, normal muscle function and of course the maintenance of normal bones.

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

Have difficulty swallowing tablets?

This Chewable formula is ideal for those who have difficulty with swallowing tablets. Getting enough calcium is especially important for men and women over 50, during pregnancy and breastfeeding, and during and after the menopause.
