Synergistic liquid calcium with magnesium, zinc & vitamin D3.
The smooth tasting, easy-to-take formula to help maintain normal bones
Osteocare® Liquid provides a rich source of calcium in a smooth, great tasting liquid, for efficient absorption into the body. This is carefully combined with co-factors including magnesium and vitamin D3.
Fat and dairy free
Just two teaspoonfuls provide as much calcium as one glass (250ml) of full fat milk, but unlike milk it is 100% fat free. Osteocare® Liquid contains no dairy products. It is ideal for those using soya milk, which is low in calcium and magnesium unless fortified.
Calcium is also vital for men and women over 50 and during pregnancy and breast-feeding. It is especially important to help maintain normal bones during and after the menopause, though research shows that the earlier women receive an adequate supply of calcium the better..
Vitabiotics Osteocare Liquid is also ideal for those who have difficulty swallowing tablets.
