Why have Jointace Original tablets been developed?
Jointace Original 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.
Can Jointace Original tablets be used simultaneously with medicines?
Jointace Original tablets is a food supplement and contains only moderate levels of vitamins and minerals. For specific advice on taking Jointace Original tablets with medicines, we recommend that you contact your doctor or pharmacist first. Diabetics and those using blood thinning medication should consult their doctor before using this product.
How many tablets does one pack of Jointace Original contain?
Jointace Original is available in 30 tablet and 90 tablet packs. It is recommended to take 2 tablets per day.
How and when should Jointace Original tablets be used?
Two tablets per day are recommended with or immediately after your main meal, with water or a cold drink. Jointace Original 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 multivitamins are taken on an empty stomach. Always ensure that Jointace Original tablets are taken with plenty of liquid to wash the tablets down, and not tea or coffee, as this may cause the tablets to disintegrate too early.
Are there any undesired effects whilst taking Jointace Original tablets?
Jointace Original 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 Original tablets may not be suitable for use by those people allergic to shellfish. Diabetics and those using blood thinning medication should consult their doctor before using this product.
Need help swallowing a tablet or capsule?
Difficulty in swallowing tablets is quite a common experience. Vitabiotics have researched this extensively and 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 to swallow the chewed food and so the tablet should go down with greater ease. Alternatively, the tablets may be swallowed with thicker liquids such as yoghurts or smoothies.
There is no maximum length of time over which Jointace Original tablets may be used. A regular intake is recommended.
Are Jointace Original tablets recommended with any other Vitabiotics’ product(s)?
The benefits of Jointace Original tablets may be enhanced by use alongside other topical (external use) products in the Jointace range, such as Jointace Patch, Gel & Magnets. Jointace Original 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.
Why has Calcium not been included in the formula?
Calcium is an essential mineral as it is needed for the maintenance of normal bones. However, it has not been included in the Jointace Original formula as it is not possible to include the right amount in one or two tablets as well as the other ingredients in Jointace Original. Rather than including a token amount of Calcium, Jointace Original has been designed so that it can also be taken with Vitabiotics Osteocare tablets, chewable tablets or liquid.
Difficulty swallowing tablets or capsules is fairly common - do you have any advice?
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.
Some Nutrient Reference Value (NRV) levels are above 100%, is this safe?
Certain vitamins are very safe at levels tens or even hundreds of times the NRV, whereas for others the safety level is much closer to the NRV. For this reason every vitamin and mineral needs to considered on an individual basis in terms of its upper safe level.
The Nutrient Reference Value (NRV) 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 NRV, 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% NRV.
All Vitabiotics products have 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.

"I’m very addicted to the gym, especially jogging on the treadmill , despite the scientific claims that being overweight and running that might hurt the knees and joints of the runner. After months of jogging and running, almost 4-5 times a week, and due to my age, 38 years old, I felt my knees and joints are exhausted. I went to a doctor to check on my knees, and he prescribed Jointace Collagen tablet, after a couple of months of using Jointace Collagen tablets every day , I feel now my joints and knees are much stronger. Most importantly I still keep running with no worries. Thank you so much for this amazing product , I hope others get benefits from my experience. "
Jemiah Umolu is a true up and coming football star of the future!

Jemiah is a convert to Vitabiotics and this is his father’s testimonial… "Roughly eight weeks ago my son was registered injured by his football club, Arsenal FC. He was advised to have three to six months rest from all sport. Given he plays for a professional academy, he couldn't afford to take this amount of time off. A week later he started a course of Vitabiotics Jointace, Osteocare and Ultra Omega 3, and just three weeks later he was himself once again. He has and will remain taking Jointace and other Vitabiotics products to maintain healthy joints, teeth and bones as he is still growing."

Now retired, I am the present President of the Dental Practitioners Association. In our 'Goodie bag', was a sample of your gel, which I applied -more in hope than expectation! to my surprise (and pleasure) I had almost immediate benefit.

You have my permission to use this letter in any promotion. Yours sincerely, B Lux. LDS.RCS"
