Vitabiotics Osteocare Fizz Effervescent - 20 Tablets
OsteocareŽ formulation is now available as a convenient, great tasting effervescent drink.
The number one calcium supplement in the UK, the original Osteocare® tablet formula has been developed by leading doctors and pharmacists. The well-balanced formula provides a rich source of calcium with co-factors to help maintain strong bones and teeth, as well as the health of the heart, muscles, and nerves. The formula includes the full-recommended daily allowances of calcium and magnesium, which play a vital role in bone development, along with vitamin D and zinc.
Vitamin D contributes to normal bone growth and development by helping the bones absorb calcium. It is also responsible for bone mineralisation and producing the hormones which maintain healthy levels of calcium and phosphorus levels in the bones and bloodstream. Osteocare® 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 action of sunlight (UVB ultraviolet radiation) on a cholesterol-like molecule present in the skin. 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 .Osteocare® also contains zinc to help in the constant regeneration of bone and to help maintain healthy muscles and nerves.
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 greater bone strength and optimal bone mineralisation. Peak bone mass, obtained during childhood and adolescent growth is known to be of major importance in maintaining the strength and integrity of bones later in life.
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: (1) bone mineral content tends to be lower in women than in men; (2) dietary calcium intake may decrease with age, and (3) the rate of bone loss accelerates at menopause.
Also available as a pleasant tasting liquid, especially recommended for children, Osteocare® is the only calcium supplement in the UK with the full RDA of calcium to be officially approved by the Vegetarian Society.
Dissolve one tablet in a glass of water to make a refreshing orange flavoured drink. Take once or twice daily.
Do not exceed the recommended intake as excessive consumption may produce laxative effects.
Osteocare®Fizz does not contain any drugs or hormones and is produced in accordance with high pharmaceutical standards of quality control, beyond those normally required for food supplements.
