Osteocare Liquid has a formula that includes the full-recommended daily allowances of calcium and magnesium, which play a vital role in bone development, along with vitamin D3 and zinc. Vitamin D contributes to normal bone growth and development by helping the bones absorb calcium. It is also responsible for bone mineralization and producing the hormones which maintain healthy levels of calcium and phosphorus levels in the bones and bloodstream.
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 action of sunlight (UVB ultraviolet radiation) on a cholesterol-like molecule present in the skin. 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. Osteocare also contains zinc to help in the constant regeneration of bone and to help maintain healthy muscles and nerves.
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 greater bone strength and optimal bone mineralisation. Peak bone mass, obtained during childhood and adolescent growth is known to be of major importance in maintaining the strength and integrity of 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
How to take Osteocare Liquid:
Children: (1-2 years) 1 teaspoon twice daily.
Children: (3-12 years) 2 teaspoons 2-3 times daily.
Adults: (men & women) 2 teaspoons twice daily.
Pregnancy and breastfeeding: 2 teaspoons twice daily is recommended.
1 teaspoon = approx. 5ml.
