Vitabiotics Osteocare plus Glucosamine and Chondroitin Tablets
Osteocare® Glucosamine and Chondroitin
Many people who take a bone health supplement are also interested in maintaining the health of their cartilage and connective tissues. Osteocare Glucosamine has been designed so there is no need for taking separate products. The advanced formula provides great value by combining bone and cartilage health nutrients in one comprehensive formula.
Bone health Osteocare® is the UK's no.1 bone health formula and has been scientifically developed on the basis of the very latest research to provide a rich source of calcium, magnesium and zinc which contribute to the maintenance of normal bone plus vitamin D, which helps with the normal absorption and utilisation of calcium by the body. Osteocare® Glucosamine 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.
Cartilage is the flexible connective tissue found between bones. Vitamin C contributes to normal collagen formation for the normal function of bones and cartilage. Osteocare® Glucosamine also provides copper which contributes to the maintenance of normal connective tissues, plus Glucosamine, Chondroitin and Ginger Root extract.
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.
The UK Department of Health recommends that people aged 65 years and over should take a daily supplement of 10mcg of vitamin D. 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? Getting enough calcium is especially important for men and women over 50, during pregnancy and breastfeeding, and during and after the menopause. For those that do not like swallowing tablets, Osteocare® Fizz, Chewable or Liquid is an ideal alternative.
TWO TO THREE TABLETS PER DAY WITH YOUR MAIN MEAL.
Swallow with water or a cold drink. Not to be chewed. Do not exceed the recommended intake.
Osteocare® Glucosamine contains glucosamine sourced from natural chitin. Do not take if you are allergic to fish or shellfish. Diabetics and those using blood thinning medication (e.g. warfarin), should consult their doctor before using this product.
