For nutritional support that’s easier to swallow, Osteocare Chewable gives you Calcium and co-factors like Vitamin D in great-tasting orange and peppermint chewable tablets.
- Based on the original Calcium, Magnesium, Vitamin D and Zinc formula
- Calcium, magnesium, vitamin D and zinc which contribute to the maintenance of normal bones
- With Vitamin D3, the preferred form of Vitamin D
- UK’s No.1 calcium supplement brand
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% NRV (Nutrient Reference Value) 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.
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
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.
