Britain's favourite bone health formula, Osteocare® provides natural source calcium carefully balanced with magnesium, zinc and vitamin D which all contribute to the maintenance of normal bones. Osteocare® is especially recommended during and after the menopause, and has been designed so that it can be taken alongside Menopace® Original, Plus, Night or Red Clover.
Osteocare® Original tablets (available in 30 or 90 tablets)
The UK's no.1 bone health formula* developed by nutritional experts to provide 100% NRV (daily nutrient reference value) of calcium and zinc. The rich source of calcium helps to reduce the loss of bone mineral in post-menopausal women†. Low bone mineral density is a risk factor for osteoporotic bone fractures.
The calcium in Osteocare® has always been ideally balanced with magnesium. The magnesium to calcium ratio in the body is vital as magnesium contributes to normal functioning of the nervous system and muscle function. Osteocare® also contains the preferred Vitamin D3, known as cholecalciferol, which is the form of vitamin D that is produced naturally by the skin on exposure to sunlight. Vitamin D is important during this time as it contributes to the normal absorption and utilisation of calcium.
Osteocare® Chewable (30 chewable tablets)
If you experience difficulty when swallowing tablets then Osteocare® Chewable may be for you. It provides the same trusted formula as Osteocare® Original but in a great tasting, orange and peppermint flavour chewable tablet.
Osteocare® Plus (56 Osteocare® tablets plus 28 Omega-3 and Soy Isoflavones capsules)
With even greater support, Osteocare® Plus provides a dual pack combining the Osteocare® Original tablets with specialist capsules. As well as Soy Isoflavones, Osteocare® Plus capsules provide additional vitamin D which contributes to normal absorption and utilisation of calcium, vitamin C which contributes to normal collagen formation for the normal function of bones and cartilage, and essential fatty acids DHA and EPA which contribute to normal heart function‡.
Osteocare® Glucosamine (60 tablets)
Because many people who take a bone health formula are also interested in maintaining the health of their cartilage and connective tissues, Osteocare® Glucosamine has been designed so there is no need for separate products. The advanced formula provides a comprehensive bone health formula together with additional vitamin C which supports normal collagen formation for the normal function of bones and cartilage, with glucosamine, chondroitin and ginger extract, in a convenient all-in-one supplement.
Osteocare® Liquid (200ml liquid)
Osteocare® Liquid is a smooth, great tasting orange flavour liquid providing a rich source of calcium and co-factors. The liquid format is ideal for those who have difficulty with swallowing tablets. Osteocare® Liquid contains no dairy products and is 100% fat free. It is ideal for those using soya milk who wish to supplement their diet with calcium and magnesium. Osteocare® Liquid is also suitable for vegetarians.
Osteocare® Fizz (20 effervescent tablets)
Osteocare® provides a rich source of calcium and co-factors in a great tasting orange flavour effervescent drink, ideal for those who have difficulty with swallowing tablets. When taken twice daily Osteocare® Fizz provides 100% NRV (Nutrient Reference Value) of calcium.
