Diabetics and those using blood thinning medication should consult their doctor before using this product. For specific advice on taking Osteocare Glucosamine with medication, we recommend that you contact your doctor or pharmacist first. As with other supplements, seek professional advice before use if you are under medical supervision, pregnant, breast-feeding of suffer from food allergies.

How and when should Osteocare Glucosamine be used?

Osteocare Glucosamine tablets – Two to three tablets daily is recommended with meals, with water or a cold drink. Swallow without chewing. Always ensure that Osteocare Glucosamine is taken with plenty of liquid to wash down the tablet. We do not recommend chewing the tablets because they have not been formulated as chewable preparations. Chewable tablets usually include flavourings, sweeteners and/or added ingredients to help break the tablet up in the mouth. For a chewable tablet, please see Osteocare Chewable.

What are the active ingredients?

Please see nutritional information

For those people who experience difficulty swallowing tablets, are there any tips or recommendations to help ease swallowing Osteocare Glucosamine tablets?

In general calcium supplement tablets do tend to be larger than other pharmaceutical preparations. The Osteocare Glucosamine tablets have been specially designed with an oval, streamlined, easy to swallow coated shape. 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. However, if you do have difficulty swallowing, the same formula is available in a chewable tablet form. Osteocare is also available in a pleasant smooth, orange tasting liquid form.

What is the source of calcium used in Osteocare Glucosamine?

The calcium in Osteocare Glucosamine 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 Glucosamine formulation.

Can calcium supplements like Osteocare Glucosamine cause kidney stones?

It is important to select a calcium supplement such as Osteocare Glucosamine, 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 Glucosamine recommended with any other Vitabiotics product(s)?

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

featured information
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.
