Osteocare Original FAQ

Why has Osteocare been developed?

Osteocare 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.

When is Osteocare 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 and those individuals avoiding food products containing calcium. Osteocare is formulated for long-term use and can be taken for as long as required, and is also suitable for vegans & vegetarians. Osteocare Original is officially approved by both the Vegan Society and the Vegetarian Society.

What do I need to know before starting to use Osteocare Original ?

Osteocare is a calcium combination supplement, specially formulated as a daily nutritional safeguard for men and women of all ages.

Can Osteocare be used simultaneously with medications?

Generally, Osteocare can be taken alongside medications because it contains only moderate levels of minerals and vitamin D. For specific advice on taking Osteocare with medicines, we recommend that you contact your doctor or pharmacist first.

How and when should Osteocare be used?

Osteocare is available in both tablet, chewable tablet and liquid form. The liquid version is ideal for those who have difficulty swallowing tablets, and for younger children over 3 years of age. Osteocare tablets - Two tablets daily (or one tablet twice daily) is recommended before or with meals, with water or a cold drink. Swallow without chewing. Always ensure that Osteocare 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.

How many tablets does Osteocare Original contain?

Osteocare Original is available in 30 tablet and 90 tablet packs. It is recommended to take two tablets per day.

Are there any undesired effects whilst taking Osteocare?

Osteocare has no known side effects when taken as directed. Do not exceed the recommended intake.

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

In general calcium supplement tablets do tend to be larger than other pharmaceutical preparations. The Osteocare 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 Are The Nutrients Included In Osteocare Original?

The key nutrients found in our Osteocare Original product includes vitamin D, calcium, magnesium, zinc, copper and selenium. To see the full list of ingredients for this product please click on the nutritional information tab found on this listing.

What is the source of calcium used in Osteocare Original ?

The calcium in Osteocare is in the form of calcium carbonate, which provides the highest concentration of elemental calcium possible in a supplement. This means that Osteocare can provide the full NRV of calcium and 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 formulation.

Can calcium supplements like Osteocare Original cause kidney stones?

It is important to select a calcium supplement such as Osteocare , 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.

Are Osteocare tablets absorbed by the body as quickly as the liquid version?

Osteocare tablets are tested to ensure the correct disintegration and dissolution profiles. Strict pharmaceutical disintegration tests, under the same comparative acidic conditions of the stomach, have shown the tablets to disintegrate between 6 to 15 mins (on average). Once the tablets have disintegrated the nutrients in tablet form will be absorbed at approximately the same rate as the liquid version.

Is Osteocare Original recommended with any other Vitabiotics product(s)?

Osteocare 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 Original 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.

Balanced with Vital Magnesium
The calcium in every Osteocare product has always been carefully 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.
