Want strong bones?
Ostelin Calcium & Vitamin D3 is a combination supplement with naturally occurring calcium and vitamin D3 for strong bones.
Each tablet contains Calcium (from Calcium Carbonate) 600mg and Vitamin D3 500IU (Colecalciferol 12.5 micrograms).
Calcium is essential throughout life to build and maintain bone strength, as it increases bone mineral density, while Vitamin D is key for calcium absorption and maintaining bone and muscle strength.
The human body cannot produce calcium, therefore we have to ensure we get enough calcium through our diet to meet our daily requirement.

Did you know?
73% of Australian women don't get enough calcium through diet alone.¹
Milk: provides a rich and absorbable source of calcium with 1 cup containing approximately 300mg of calcium.²
Cheese: 60g portions of feta, cheddar and brie provide approximately 270mg of calcium, 480mg of calcium and 240mg of calcium respectively.4
Yoghurt: A 200g tub of yoghurt provides roughly 300mg of calcium.²
Sardines and salmon (with soft edible bones) should be included in a healthy diet for good bones. ½ cup of canned salmon delivers approximately 400mg of calcium.²
Bean & legume based
Tofu: ½ cup of tofu provides around 430mg of calcium.³
Beans: ½ cup of white beans contains 81mg of calcium and ½ cup of red kidney beans contains 25mg of calcium.³ Beans also contain phytic acid, a component that can reduce how much of the calcium is absorbed into the body. For this reason, you may need to consume more of this food to meet your calcium requirements.³
For infants, the most important factor in the development of a potential vitamin D insufficiency is their mother's vitamin D status. Generally, breast milk is low in vitamin D.
Infants who are breast-fed and dark-skinned may require vitamin D supplementation to maintain adequate vitamin D nutrition.
Children & Adolescents
Calcium is essential in youth and throughout life to maximise and strengthen bones. It increases bone mineral density and assists normal healthy bone development in teenagers.
Bone mass increases about seven-fold from birth to puberty, and half of a person's bone mass is accumulated during adolescence.
Sufficient dietary calcium is needed to maintain bone mass.
Up until around the age of 30, the body creates bone faster than it is broken down. After age 30, this balance changes and more bone is lost than is gained.
Increase calcium intake.
Maintain bone strength.
