MANUFACTURER: SMITHKLINE BEECHAM CONSUMER. INDICATIONS: Oscal 500 Plus Vitamin D Tablets For Strong Bones
Os-Cal is the brand which has been proven effective in more clinical studies. And Os-Cal 500+D has the added benefit of vitamin D, which helps the body absorb calcium.
Vitamin D helps the body absorb calcium, which helps to reduce age-related bone loss and bone fractures related to osteoporosis. The body produces its own vitamin D through exposure to sunlight, but that process slows down as a person ages. As we age, we tend to reduce our exposure to sunlight, so 'we need to increase our consumption of vitamin D to enhance calcium absorption, ' says Michael Thomas, M. D. , associate professor at the University of Cincinnati Medical Center. Warning
