Skeletal Health Dietary Supplement*
What Is Ortho-Tabs?*
Introduced by MediNiche in 1997, Ortho-Tabs is the #1 recommended dietary supplement recommended by orthopedic surgeons to patients as part of a total care program for bone health.
Originally developed in conjunction with orthopedic surgeons, Ortho-Tabs contain key bone strengthening components such as a triple complex of calcium compounds along with vitamins D, C and K, minerals such as magnesium, manganese, boron, potassium and zinc, the soy plant derivative, ipriflavone, and the calcium absorption enhancer, L-Lysine.
Ortho-Tabs is specifically designed for patients who may be at risk of nutritional deficiencies as the result of poor diet associated with surgery, rehabilitation, trauma, injury, disease or age. Those that can benefit from Ortho-Tabs use include pre-/post-surgical patients, osteoporosis prone patients, peri- and post-menopausal women on biphosphonate therapy or HRT, young women 13 – 35 years and athletes.
Bottle Size: 90 Tablets Serving Size: 3 Tablets Servings per Container: 30
Who Can Benefit From Taking Ortho-Tabs?*
Patients with osteoporosis or at risk for osteoporosis…ORTHO-TABS can help increase peak bone mass in young women and help to maintain bone mass in post-menopausal women, possibly reducing the risk for osteoporosis later in life. It is recommended that women taking bone building therapies such as biphosphonate drugs, also take supplemental calcium. To learn more about osteoporosis click here.
Patients undergoing orthopedic surgery…extra nutritional support is required during times of stress such as surgery or trauma. Ortho-Tabs prepare your body pre-operatively for the stress of surgery by boosting your nutritional status and help to meet the body’s increased nutritional needs during the post-operative period.
Patients recovering from a recent fracture…nutrition is one of the most important influences on fracture healing. Inadequate nutritional status can delay healing.
Pre-, peri- and post-menopausal women…supplementation during pre-menopausal years appears to prevent bone loss, allowing women to enter menopause with greater bone mass which may reduce the risk of bone fractures later in life. Women who fail to receive adequate intakes of calcium and vitamin D can lose up to 5% of their bone mass during the first five years following menopause.
Young women (peak bone building years)…it is of utmost importance that you receive adequate amounts of appropriate nutrients during bone building years. Building your “bank” of bone when you are young may help decrease your risk for osteoporosis later in life.
Elderly Patients…elderly people are often at increased risk for nutritional deficiencies due to a poor diet and a sedentary lifestyle. Many elderly live alone, avoid cooking and often times have a difficult time getting around.
Can Ortho-Tabs be taken in addition to a general multivitamin multimineral supplement such as CENTRUM® (Pfizer) or ONE-A-DAY® (Bayer)?
Yes. The Ortho-Tabs formulation was carefully developed to ensure that the amounts of all components were within a safe intake range (NOAEL, LOAEL), even if taken with a general multivitamin multimineral supplement. There are vitamin and mineral components of Ortho-Tabs that exceed the maximum Daily Value or RDA. However, as stated by the Council for Responsible Nutrition (CRN), exceeding the maximum RDA in no way means that such overage amounts are unsafe. There is scientific evidence that in certain body metabolic and physiological processes there may be an increased need for vitamins and minerals to maintain tissues and cell integrity and growth.
