Osteocare Original is the UK’s no.1 bone health formula and has been scientifically developed on the basis of the very latest research to provide a rich source of calcium and co-factors including vitamin D which helps with the normal absorption of calcium by the body.
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 skin on exposure to sunlight. 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.
Calcium plus co-factors
Osteocare Original provides 100% NRV (Nutrient Reference Value) of calcium carefully combined with co-factors including vitamin D, zinc and magnesium which help to maintain normal bone health.
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 normal bone health and optimal bone mineralisation. Peak bone mass, obtained during childhood and adolescent growth is known to be of major importance in maintaining bones later in life. The UK Department of Health recommends that people aged 65 years and over should take a daily supplement of 10mcg of vitamin D.
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
Have difficulty swallowing tablets?
This Original formula is also available in a chewable tablet for those who have difficulty with swallowing tablets. Osteocare Chewable provides the same levels of calcium, magnesium, vitamin D and zinc which contribute to the maintenance of normal bone health. Getting enough calcium is especially important for men and women over 50, during pregnancy and breastfeeding, and during and after the menopause.

Energy Release, Health & Vitality
Wellman Original contains a comprehensive formulation of over 29 nutrients. Wellman has been specially developed for men of all ages to help maintain general health and vitality in an otherwise hectic lifestyle. Wellman represents a simple solution, with an advanced one-a-day tablet, which unlike a general multivitamin, has been specifically formulated for the specific needs of men.
The Original Supplement for Men
Wellman is different from a regular multivitamin as its formula has been optimised for men’s health on the basis of international research evidence, so some nutrients are provided at levels above the Nutrient Reference Value. While Wellman provides a core source of all the major vitamins and minerals, it also provides more than 100% of certain nutrients, plus Siberian Ginseng, Co-enzyme Q10 and amino acids.
A healthy immune system is important for good health. Wellman includes vitamins A, C, D, B6 and B12 plus folic acid and copper which contribute to the normal function of the immune system. It provides 10mcg vitamin D, the level recommended by the UK Department of Health.
Sport & Exercise
To be on top of your game you can’t afford to be tired. Wellman provides pantothenic acid and magnesium which contribute to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue.
Wellman provides zinc which contributes to normal reproduction and the maintenance of normal testosterone levels in the blood. The formula also includes selenium which contributes to normal spermatogenesis. Since men lose an estimated 5 mg of zinc every time they ejaculate, a good intake of zinc is essential. Folate, iron, magnesium and vitamin B12 have a role in cell division, plus vitamin A which has a role in the process of cell specialisation.
Based on the latest scientific research, Wellman has been developed by a team of scientific experts. Wellman is currently used in training by several professional sports men.
Wellman Original is available in the UK from Boots, Tesco, Sainsburys, Superdrug, Waitrose, supermarkets, pharmacies and health stores including Holland & Barrett. Alternatively you can order online here.
