Osteocare® Liquid

Osteocare Liquid has been scientifically developed on the basis of the very latest research and provides a rich source of calcium and co-factors in a smooth, great tasting liquid. The formula also provides vitamin D which helps with the normal absorption of calcium by the body.

Osteocare® contains the preferred D3 form of Vitamin D. Vitamin D3, also known as cholecalciferol, is the form of vitamin D that is produced by the skin on exposure to sunlight. D3 is the preferred form of vitamin D because it is the specific form made in the human body and therefore more effective than D2 which is found in some supplements.

Calcium plus co-factors

Osteocare Liquid carefully combines calcium with co-factors including vitamin D, zinc plus magnesium which help to maintain normal bones.

Calcium is important for everyone

Ensuring an adequate intake of calcium is vital for men and women of all ages, as evidence suggests that healthy practices early in life, including the adequate consumption of calcium and trace elements, contribute to normal bone health and optimal bone mineralisation. Peak bone mass, obtained during childhood and adolescent growth is known to be of major importance in maintaining bones later in life.

Calcium is vital for older women

Both sexes lose bone mass during their lifetime but after the menopause women usually lose bone mass much faster than men.

Postmenopausal women have an increased risk of bone loss for three reasons:

  • Bone mineral content tends to be lower in women than in men
  • Dietary calcium intake may decrease with age
  • The rate of bone loss accelerates at menopause

Have difficulty swallowing tablets?

This liquid formula is ideal for those who have difficulty with swallowing tablets, and provides calcium, magnesium, vitamin D and zinc which contribute to the maintenance of normal bone health. Getting enough calcium is especially important for men and women over 50, during pregnancy and breastfeeding, and during and after the menopause.

Children’s growth and development

With a delicious orange taste, Osteocare Liquid is ideal for children. Osteocare liquid provides calcium and vitamin D which are needed for normal growth and development of bone in children.

Dairy and fat free

Osteocare Liquid contains no dairy products and is 100% fat free. It is ideal for those using soya milk who wish to supplement their diet with calcium and magnesium. Osteocare is also suitable for vegetarians.

Calcium intake guidelines

Medical Aspects of Food and Nutrition policy 1998.

Based on scientific research

The Osteocare® formulation is based on the very latest international findings on the role of nutrients in normal bone health, as well as multiple large-scale scientific studies in the past 20 years.

Balanced with Magnesium

The calcium in Osteocare® 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.
