Jointace® Magnet Action
Maintaining an active lifestyle
Cartilage and bone health are important for long term wellbeing. Jointace® Collagen has been developed by Vitabiotics nutritional experts and provides unique combinations of trace minerals, vitamins and nutrients, ideal for those with an active life, in sport or in later life.
Collagen (Type II)
Jointace® Collagen provides a high-grade collagen which is hydrolysed to improve absorption and unlike some sources of collagen it contains high levels of the key amino acid hydroxylysine.
Collagen is a structural protein found in several connective tissues in the body including bones, cartilage, gums, skin, tendons and blood vessels.
Trace minerals and vitamins
- Vitamin C contributes to normal collagen formation for the normal function of bones and cartilage.
- Copper contributes to the maintenance of normal connective tissues and therefore can be beneficial to cartilage (as cartilage is made up of connective tissues).
- Vitamin D, zinc and manganese all help to maintain normal bone. Vitamin D3 is provided in its Cholecalciferol form as naturally produced by the body on exposure to sunlight.
Glucosamine & Chondroitin
Along with trace minerals, Jointace® Collagen provides Glucosamine present in the preferred potassium form, and a high quality LMW (low molecular weight) form of Chondroitin.
Jointace® Collagen is available in the UK from Boots, Superdrug, Tesco, Waitrose, supermarkets and pharmacies, health stores including Holland and Barrett. Alternatively you can order online here.

Jointace® Collagen FAQ
Jointace® Collagen tablets have been scientifically developed to help safeguard your diet with specific nutrients which help to support normal cartilage and bone health which are important for long term wellbeing and maintaining an active lifestyle. [Top]
Jointace® Collagen tablets are a food supplement and contain only moderate levels of vitamins and minerals. For specific advice on taking Jointace® Collagen tablets with medicines, we recommend that you contact your doctor or pharmacist first. Diabetics and those using blood thinning medication (e.g. blood thinners) should consult their doctor before using this product. [Top]
Jointace® Collagen contains 30 tablets per pack. It is recommended to take 2 tablets per day. [Top]
Two tablets per day are recommended with or immediately after your main meal, with water or a cold drink, and not tea or coffee as this may cause the tablets to disintegrate too early. Jointace® Collagen tablets should not be chewed. Taking the tablets with a large meal maximises the absorption of the nutrients and can reduce nausea, which is sometimes experienced if vitamin supplements are taken on an empty stomach. [Top]
Jointace® Collagen tablets have no known side-effects when taken as directed. Do not exceed the recommended intake. In case of overdose, seek medical advice immediately. Jointace® Collagen tablets may not be suitable for use by those allergic to fish or shellfish. Diabetics and those using blood thinning medication (blood thinners) should consult their doctor before using this product. [Top]
Jointace® Collagen tablets contain the following active ingredients per two tablets: Type II Crodaflex Collagen (300mg); Glucosamine Sulphate 1000 mg; Chondroitin Sulphate 100 mg; Vitamin E 40 mg; Vitamin D (800 IU) 20 mcg; Vitamin C 60 mg; Folic Acid 400 mcg; Vitamin B12 20 mcg; Zinc 10 mg; Manganese 4 mg; Copper 1 mg; Selenium 120 mcg; Ginger Root extract 80 mg. Jointace® Collagen tablets are free from artificial colourings, gluten, preservatives, sugar, salt and yeast. Jointace® Collagen tablets have not been tested on animals. [Top]
Results vary amongst individuals. There is no maximum length of time over which Jointace® Collagen tablets may be used. A regular intake is recommended. [Top]
The benefits of Jointace® Collagen tablets may be enhanced by use alongside other topical (external use) products in the Jointace® range, such as Jointace® Patch, Gel and Magnets. Jointace® Collagen is also ideal in combination with a calcium supplement, such as Vitabiotics® Osteocare®, and/or additional fish oil, such as Vitabiotics® Ultra™ Omega-3 oils. [Top]
Calcium is an essential mineral as it is needed for the maintenance of normal bones. However, it has not been included in the Jointace® Collagen formula as it is not possible to include the right amount in one or two tablets as well as the other ingredients in Jointace® Collagen. Rather than including a token amount of Calcium, Jointace® Collagen has been designed so that it can also be taken with Vitabiotics Osteocare® tablets, chewable tablets, effervescent fizz or liquid. [Top]
Difficulty in swallowing tablets is quite a common experience. Vitabiotics have researched this extensively, trying different methods, and hope that our tips will help you swallow tablets with ease.
The usual advice for those who have difficulty in swallowing tablets, is to break the tablets into 2-3 pieces, before swallowing with plenty of liquid. For capsules (which contain liquid), and in cases where people have more difficulty in swallowing tablets we recommend after chewing some food (e.g. banana), just before you swallow, pop the tablet into your mouth and swallow it together with the chewed food, followed by some liquid. The throat opens up wider automatically to swallow the chewed food and hence the tablet should go down with greater ease. Alternatively the tablets or capsules may be swallowed with thicker liquids such as yoghurts or smoothies. We hope these tips are of help.[Top]
Certain vitamins are very safe at levels tens or even hundreds of times the RDA, whereas for others the safety level is much closer to the RDA. For this reason every vitamin and mineral needs to considered on an individual basis in terms of its upper safe level.
The Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA) is the amount of a vitamin or mineral which has been calculated to help prevent basic deficiency states in the general population. However, certain vitamins and minerals at optimal levels, above the RDA, have consistently been shown to have positive benefits in specific areas of health. This is why some Vitabiotics formulas have certain nutrient levels greater than 100% RDA.
All Vitabiotics products has been developed using the latest research and contain effective levels of vitamins and minerals, while avoiding any excessive amounts, in accordance with official upper safe limits for vitamins and minerals.
Vitabiotics avoids ‘mega dose’ levels of isolated nutrients and instead we have always stressed the importance of safe, moderate and sensible levels of vitamins and minerals, carefully balanced to maximise their combined effect; an approach which has been supported by many experts and researchers over the years.
