Zinc and 4 supporting nutrients.
A complete formula to help maintain strong bones for men and women of all ages.
No. 1 UK BONE HEALTH FORMULA.
The UK's No. 1 calcium formula.
To help keep your bones strong and healthy, you must receive enough of certain nutrients in your diet every day. Osteocare has been scientifically developed on the very latest research to help maintain strong bones and teeth. Its natural source mineral calcium is the most concentrated form of calcium available.
Are you getting enough magnesium?
As well as calcium, other specific nutrients such as magnesium are vital for bone metabolism. Most of the body's magnesium is found in the bones. Because this mineral is so important for bones, Osteocare's unique formula provides the ideal balance of magnesium (300mg) and calcium (800mg) both at full RDA levels.
No other calcium supplement provides this special formula:
More magnesium than 4 pints of milk.
More calcium than a whole pint of milk.
Plus vitamin D, zinc and 4 additional supporting nutrients.
No other supplement provides the exact Recommended Daily Allowance of Calcium, Magnesium and Vitamin D plus zinc and 4 additional supporting nutrients.
Osteocare does not contain any drugs or hormones, but is produced in accordance with high pharmaceutical standards of quality control.
Osteocare tablets are free from artificial colourants. Other calcium tablets, if coloured, are likely to be coated with added colourants.
Osteocare Fizz, Liquid and Chewable are also available for those who prefer not to swallow tablets.

Considering that most people taking calcium supplements are likely to be over 50, when your body starts to have more difficulty to absorb nutrients, I really think this supplement is not only a complete waste of money but it might be a little dangerous as you might end up taking too much of this less absorbable form of calcium in order to "make ends meet". Moreover, the hard tablet form makes this supplement a risk of choking and I know of more than one person who had choked on hard tablets.
Unfortunately, this is not the only poor calcium supplement around. Literally all calcium/magnesium supplements in the high street are poor and use the cheapest calcium carbonate, which needs more stomach acid to digest and is likely to cause more side effects such as bloating or constipation ( what is less likely with calcium citrate, for example ).
There are plenty of far better calcium supplements in the market. They are easier to absorb, much easier to take and you will have the flexibility to choose exactly how much calcium you want to take at once, instead of being forced to take at least 400 mg of calcium per tablet ( it is known that your body can't absorb more than about 500 mg or less of calcium at once ).
Besides being far better supplements, you will not pay much more ( apart from the PE one).Read more ›
I wouldnt buy this again though just because of the difficulty of swallowing
I have to say these are not the easiest pills to swallow as they are huge and not coated so they kind of get stuck in my throat and often take me several swallows and strategic placing of the offending pill at the back of my throat before I manage to get it down.
There are other forms of this supplement from Vitabiotics which are easier to take as they are chewable, or liquid or fizz if you struggle to swallow these.
These pills are white and not coloured nor do they have any coating on them and they don’t contain any drugs or hormones. They are gluten free, have no lactose, no preservatives, no salt or yeast and have not been tested on animals.
They have apparently been awarded” the Queen’s Award for enterprise in innovation in Vitamin research”.
Now personally I take one a day as I feel that I do have a good diet now and also because I do struggle to get these down. I do also sometimes forget to take one as we have our main meal at night and by the time I have cooked and served it out I forget these and have to take one after the meal.
I find it hard to measure whether I am better off having taken these pills but I plan to continue as I really do not want to suffer with brittle bones as I get older. They are not the easiest pills to take and in future I might be a baby and get the chewable ones instead as they taste foul when they get stuck in my throat and once stuck I have to have several swallows to get one down.Read more ›
