Osteocare Glucosamine and Chondroitin
If you’re striving for all-round bone and cartilage health, Osteocare Plus Glucosamine and Chondroitin gives you one comprehensive formula to safeguard your diet.
- Support based on 30 years of research
- Includes 1000 IU Vitamin D plus Vitamin C which contributes to normal collagen formation for the normal function of cartilage
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 everyone should consider taking a daily supplement containing of vitamin D, particularly during autumn and winter. (Source: NHS Choices).
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.
