Ultra Calcium

Ultra Calcium provides a rich source of calcium which contributes to the maintenance of normal bones and teeth, carefully balanced with vitamin D which contributes to normal absorption and utilisation of calcium.

Ensuring an adequate intake of calcium is vital for men and women of all ages and is especially important:

  • For growing children
  • Throughout pregnancy and breast-feeding
  • During and after the menopause
  • For elderly men and women

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.

Bone Mineral Density

Calcium and vitamin D contribute to the maintenance of normal bones, teeth and normal muscle function. They also help to reduce the loss of bone mineral in post-menopausal women††. Low bone mineral density is a risk factor for osteoporotic bone fractures.

Cell Division & Neurotransmission

Calcium and vitamin D have a role in the process of cell division. In addition, calcium contributes to normal neurotransmission.

With D3, the preferred form of Vitamin D

Ultra Calcium provides 20mcg vitamin D, in the preferred D3 form as produced naturally by our skin when exposed to sunlight. As well as being important to support normal blood calcium levels, vitamin D also contributes to the normal function of the immune system.

The 20mcg level of vitamin D included in Ultra Calcium is within limits recommended by the Food Standards Agency and reflects the latest research recommending general increases in vitamin D intake levels in the population.

Ultra Calcium FAQ

Why has Ultra Calcium been developed?

Ultra Calcium is scientifically formulated, and developed by experts, to provide a rich source of calcium which contributes to the maintenance of normal bones and teeth, carefully balanced with vitamin D which contributes to normal absorption and utilisation of calcium, and normal blood calcium levels. Ensuring an adequate intake of calcium is vital for men and women of all ages. Top

When is Ultra Calcium 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 and breast-feeding

Ultra Calcium is formulated for long-term use and can be taken for as long as required. It is also suitable for vegetarians. Top

Can Ultra Calcium be used simultaneously with medications?

Generally, Ultra Calcium can be taken alongside medications. For specific advice on taking Ultra Calcium with medicines, we recommend that you contact your doctor or pharmacist first. Top

How and when should Ultra Calcium be used?

Take one or two tablets per day, swallow with water or a cold drink. Do not exceed the recommended intake. As with other food supplements, seek professional advice before using if you are under medical supervision or suffer from food allergies. Ultra Calcium may be used for as long as required, and a regular intake is recommended unless advised otherwise by your physician. We do not recommend chewing the tablets because they have not been formulated as chewable preparations. Top

Difficulty swallowing tablets or capsules is fairly common - do you have any advice?

Difficulty in swallowing tablets is quite a common experience. Vitabiotics have researched this extensively, trying different methods, and hope that our tips will help you swallow tablets with ease.

The usual advice for those who have difficulty in swallowing tablets, is to break the tablets into 2-3 pieces, before swallowing with plenty of liquid. For capsules (which contain liquid), and in cases where people have more difficulty in swallowing tablets we 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 automatically to swallow the chewed food and hence the tablet should go down with greater ease. Alternatively the tablets or capsules may be swallowed with thicker liquids such as yoghurts or smoothies. We hope these tips are of help. 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 be 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.

"I’ve been taking Ultra Sage for all most a year. I would recommend it to anyone who is currently going through the menopause. ''Brilliant'' thank you."

Mrs Joanne Eaton, United Kingdom

"I decided to try Ultra Bilberry, Lutein and Zeaxanthin tablets (already aware that bilberries are good for your eyes) and see if they made any difference. I'm delighted to be able to say that there has been a distinct improvement. Thank you for an excellent product."

Miss Z , United Kingdom

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."

Mr John Umolu, United Kingdom

"I cannot recommend Vitabiotics Ultra Krill Oil enough. I have been taken them for 6 months they are great. I have told my doctor about what they have done for me. I have never recommend any thing before but these I feel I must tell you"

Mrs Mary S, United Kingdom

"I cannot recommend these enough! They support so many functions of the body, and this is the perfect level (I take 2 each day). They are individually sealed for freshness, and the price is perfect for the amount provided."
