Osteocare Liquid FAQ
Why has Osteocare Liquid been developed?
Osteocare Liquid 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 the normal absorption and utilisation of calcium in the body. Zinc and magnesium are also essential factors and unfortunately, many people, especially those cutting down on their dairy products, may not be getting all the calcium they need.
When is Osteocare Liquid recommended?
Research shows the earlier both men and women receive a good supply of these nutrients the better. Getting enough calcium is especially important:
For growing children
Throughout pregnancy & breast-feeding
During and after the menopause
For elderly men and women
For athletes, dancers and slimmers
Osteocare Liquid is formulated for long-term use and can be taken for as long as required, and is also approved by The Vegetarian Society.
What do I need to know before starting to use Osteocare Liquid?
Osteocare is a calcium combination supplement, specially formulated as a daily nutritional safeguard for men and women of all ages as well as children from 3 years old.
Can Osteocare Liquid be used simultaneously with medications?
Generally, Osteocare Liquid can be taken alongside medications because it contains only moderate levels of minerals and vitamins. For specific advice on taking Osteocare Liquid with medicines, we recommend that you contact your doctor or pharmacist first.

What is the source of calcium used in Osteocare Liquid?
The calcium in Osteocare Liquid is in the form of calcium carbonate, which provides the highest concentration of elemental calcium possible in a supplement. 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 Liquid formulation.
Can calcium supplements like Osteocare Liquid cause kidney stones?
It is important to select a calcium supplement such as Osteocare Liquid, which includes calcium in combination with other synergistic co-factors such as magnesium. The presence of the mineral magnesium, as well as contributing to the maintenance of normal bones, also contributes to normal protein synthesis and electrolyte balance.
Is Osteocare Liquid recommended with any other Vitabiotics product(s)?
Osteocare Liquid has been carefully formulated so that it can be used in combination with any other product in Vitabiotics multivitamin and mineral product range, or other food supplements such as garlic, fish oil etc. However, for maximum results we recommend Osteocare Liquid is taken at a separate time of the day, at least an hour apart from your main Vitabiotics multinutrient supplement.
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.
