Product Info

Caltrate 600+D3 offers a high level of vitamin D3 to help maximise calcium absorption and support healthy bones, joints and muscles - so you can live life to the fullest. Sufficient calcium & vitamin D as part of a healthy diet may reduce the risk of osteoporosis.

Calcium not only nourishes your bones, but also plays a role in:

  • Nerves
  • Hormones
  • Muscles
  • Teeth

Advanced levels of vitamin D3 in Caltrate help:

  • Maximise calcium absorption
  • Maintain healthy bones
How To Use

The recommended dose is 1 tablet twice a day for adults and older people (e.g. one in the morning and one in the evening).

Pregnant women should only take 1 tablet per day. You should take the tablet with a large glass of water (200 ml). If you are more than 65 years-old or have difficulties swallowing, you should divide the breakable tablet in two parts and take them with a large glass of water (200 ml). The scoreline is only there to help you break the tablet if you have difficulty swallowing it whole.

In the two hours before taking Caltrate, you should avoid eating foods containing oxalic acid (e.g. spinach and rhubarb) or phytic acid (e.g. wholegrain cereals), which can reduce calcium absorption.

This medicine may be used during pregnancy, however the total daily intake of calcium should not be higher than 1500 mg and the daily intake of vitamin D not higher than 600 IU. Therefore, in the case of pregnancy, the daily dose of Caltrate must not exceed one tablet per day. Higher amounts may have a negative effect on the unborn child.
