Osteocare Chewable FAQ


Why has Osteocare chewable been developed?

Osteocare Chewable 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.

Top

When is Osteocare chewable 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 chewable is formulated for long-term use and can be taken for as long as required, and is also approved by The Vegetarian Society.

Need help swallowing a tablet or capsule?

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.

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

The Osteocare Chewable tablets have been specially designed for those who have difficulty swallowing tablets. However, if you are not comfortable with chewing the tablet Osteocare is also available in a pleasant smooth, orange tasting liquid form.

Top

What is the source of calcium used in Osteocare chewable?

The calcium in Osteocare Chewable is in the form of calcium carbonate, which provides the highest concentration of elemental calcium possible in a supplement. This means that Osteocare Chewable 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 Chewable formulation.

Top

Can calcium supplements like Osteocare chewable cause kidney stones?

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

Osteocare Chewable 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 Chewable is taken at a separate time of the day, at least an hour apart from your main Vitabiotics multivitamin 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.

"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.

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." Mr John Umolu , United Kingdom
