Calcium is important for everyone
Men and women of all ages should ensure an adequate intake of calcium. As the adequate consumption of calcium and trace elements contributes to normal bone health and mineralization. Peak bone mass during childhood and adolescence is very important in maintaining bones later in life. The United Kingdom Department of Health recommends that everyone should take a daily supplement of vitamin D, specifically in winter and autumn.
Calcium is necessary for older women
Men and women lose bone mass with age, but post-menopausal women lose bone mass faster than men due to:
- Bone minerals are usually lower in women than in men.
- The rate of bone loss fastens at and after menopause.
- Dietary calcium intake usually decreases with age.
What to do if I find swallowing tablets difficult?
You can use chewable tablets if you have difficulty swallowing tablets. Osteocare Chewable tablets include the same levels of calcium, magnesium, and zinc which is important for normal bone health. Enough calcium is particularly important during pregnancy, breastfeeding and for men and women over 50, as well as during and after menopause.
