How well do you know your bones?
Millions of Brits are unable to tell their femur from their fibula, research has found. A study of 2,000 adults revealed that despite six in 10 claiming to have a good knowledge of their bones and what they need to do to keep them healthy, more than one in four could not correctly name the thigh bone as a femur.

Balanced with Vital Magnesium
The calcium in every Osteocare product has always been balanced with magnesium. We believe that based on a wealth of international published research, calcium should always be supplied with vitamin D and balanced with meaningful levels of magnesium, as the magnesium to calcium ratio in the body is vital. Magnesium contributes to electrolyte balance, normal muscle function and of course the maintenance of normal bones.

Why Is Calcium Important For Bone Health?

Calcium is an essential mineral found in our bones, helping to support normal healthy bone strength. Your body contains around one kilogram of calcium - 99% of which is in your bones. To help keep bones healthy you must have the right nutrients in your daily diet. Ensuring adequate intake of calcium is vital for the maintenance of normal bones, as is vitamin D, which is necessary for the normal absorption and utilisation of calcium. Getting enough of these nutrients every day may actually help support your bones for the years to come.
