Osteocare Fizz

National Osteoporosis Society

Osteocare is the UK's no.1 bone health formula and has been scientifically developed on the basis of the very latest research to provide a rich source of calcium and co-factors including vitamin D which helps with the normal absorption of calcium by the body.

Osteocare Fizz makes a convenient, great tasting natural orange flavour drink and is ideal for those who have difficulty with swallowing tablets.

Osteocare Fizz 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.typical changes in bone mass with age

Calcium plus co-factors

Osteocare Fizz provides 100% NRV (Nutrient Reference Value) of calcium (based on two tablets) 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. The UK Department of Health recommends that people aged 65 years and over should take a daily supplement of 10mcg of vitamin D.osteocare

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

Calcium intake guidelines

The National Osteoporosis Society (NOS) recommends the following guidelines for calcium intake

Age Suggested daily calcium intake
0-12 months (non-breast-fed infants only) 525 mg
1-3 years 350 mg
4-6 years 450 mg

Based on the Department of Health Committee on the Medical Aspects of Food and Nutrition policy 1998.

Osteocare Fizz FAQ

Why has Osteocare Fizz been developed?

Osteocare Fizz is scientifically formulated, and developed by experts, and each ingredient is included on the basis of research evidence. Bone is living tissue and to help keep it healthy, you must have the right nutrients in your daily diet. Calcium contributes to the maintenance of normal bone health, along with vitamin D which contributes to normal absorption and utilisation of calcium in the body. Zinc and magnesium are also essential factors in normal bone health and unfortunately, many people, especially those cutting down on their dairy products, may not be getting all the calcium they need.

Osteocare Fizz contains 20 tablets per pack. It is recommended to take one per day. Top

The calcium in Osteocare Fizz is in the form of calcium carbonate, which provides the highest concentration of elemental calcium possible in a supplement. This means that Osteocare Fizz can provide the full NRV of calcium (based on taking one tablet twice daily) plus other minerals without the need to take lots of tablets. The calcium carbonate used is of high pharmaceutical grade from a natural source. To prevent possible contamination with metals such as lead, oyster calcium and bone-dolomite have not been included in the Osteocare Fizz formulation. Top

It is important to select a calcium supplement such as Osteocare Fizz, which includes calcium in combination with other synergistic co-factors such as magnesium.

Osteocare Fizz has been carefully formulated so that it can be used in combination with any other product in the Vitabiotics' multivitamin and mineral product range, or other food supplements such as garlic, fish oil etc. However, for maximum results we recommend Osteocare Fizz is taken at a separate time of the day, at least an hour apart from your main Vitabiotics' multivitamin supplement.

"Although you market this for healthy bones I am taking it for muscle cramps and after 6 weeks I don't think I have had a single one; it has made such a difference to me as a very active 62 year old builder, thanks."

Mr M O Ahmad, United Kingdom

Jemiah Umolu is a true up and coming football star of the future! At just nine years old, he is already signed by Arsenal FC to play in their Under 12 team and is rated one of their best in his age group. 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."

Mr John Umolu, United Kingdom

"Wonderful product for vegetarians and the liquid is great to drink. Thanks :)"

Miss C C, Singapore

"My mother is now 80 and has needed joint support for over 10 years. About 5 years ago I started sending her Vitabiotics Jointace plus Osteocare. She recently had another round of tests and the specialists were astounded to find that her bone health is completely normal for a woman of her age!"

Mr S L, United Kingdom

These tablets have really made a tremendous difference to my life and i have great energy levels and sense of overall wellbeing. I am very grateful to Vitabiotics for such a great range of quality products. "
