Osteocare Liquid

National Osteoporosis Society

Osteocare Liquid has been scientifically developed on the basis of the very latest research and provides a rich source of calcium and co-factors in a smooth, great tasting liquid. The formula also provides vitamin D which helps with the normal absorption of calcium by the body.

Osteocare 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.

Calcium plus co-factors

Osteocare Liquid carefully combines calcium with co-factors including vitamin D, zinc plus magnesium which help to maintain normal bones.

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.

Calcium is vital for older women

Osteocare - Liquid 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

Have difficulty swallowing tablets?

This liquid formula is ideal for those who have difficulty with swallowing tablets, and provides calcium, magnesium, vitamin D and zinc which contribute to the maintenance of normal bone health. Getting enough calcium is especially important for men and women over 50, during pregnancy and breastfeeding, and during and after the menopause.

Children's growth and development

With a delicious orange taste, Osteocare Liquid is ideal for children. Osteocare liquid provides calcium and vitamin D which are needed for normal growth and development of bone in children.

Dairy and fat free

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 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. Top

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. Top

Please see nutritional information click here Top

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. Top

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. Top

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. Top

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 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.

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."
