The science of good bone structureThe number one calcium supplement, the CURA OSTEO®tablet formula has been developed by leading doctors and pharmacists. The well-balanced formula provides a rich source of calcium with co-factors to help maintain strong bones and teeth, as well as the health of the heart, muscles, and nerves. The formula includes the full-recommended daily allowances of calcium and magnesium, which play a vital role in bone development, along with vitamin D3 and zinc.With vitamin D (in the preferred D3 form) and zincVitamin D contributes to normal bone growth and development by helping the bones absorb calcium. It is also responsible for bone mineralisation and producing the hormones which maintain healthy levels of calcium and phosphorus levels in the bones and bloodstream.CURA OSTEO® 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.CURA OSTEO® 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:
(1) bone mineral content tends to be lower in women than in men;
(2) dietary calcium intake may decrease with age, and
(3) the rate of bone loss accelerates at menopause.

Directions for Use
Two tablets daily (or one tablet twice daily), with a main meal. Swallow with water or a cold drink. Swallow without chewing. Do not exceed the recommended intake.
Bones are living tissue, and as such, they need to be fed essential vitamins and minerals to keep them strong and healthy. The following steps will help your bones stay in the best possible condition.
Eat a calcium rich diet. Calcium gives our bones strength and rigidity. The best sources of calcium are milk, cheese and yoghurt as these contain large amounts of readily available calcium. For people who are watching their weight, low-fat versions of milk and other dairy products contain just as much calcium as the higher fat varieties.
Remember not all dairy products contain lactose – the sugar found naturally in milk. Some people cannot tolerate lactose, but for practical purposes natural yoghurt and hard cheeses are lactose free.
Remember that foods such as spinach, fibre-rich foods and nuts are high in calcium. However, the calcium in these foods is far less well absorbed than that in dairy products. This is because they contain oxalates and phytates which bind with the calcium making its absorption more difficult.
Try to avoid eating too much animal protein. Animal protein is a rich source of amino acids which need to be “neutralized” in the body with calcium and other substances. A diet high in animal protein may increase the normal daily loss of calcium in the urine.
