Bone & Joint Health

Inhealth.ie stock only top quality and high performing nutritional supplements to support your bone and joint health now and into the future.  Recent research undertaken by the NDC (National Dairy Council) has shown that 29% of adults are not meeting their recommended calcium intake and missing out on essential nutrients such as calcium, which can result in serious long term health risks such as osteoporisis. Osteoporisis is termed a silent disease and currently affects one in five men over 50 and one in two women over 50 in Ireland. It can also affect children, however it is both preventable and treatable by ensuring your diet is rich in calcium and vitamin D and that you engage in regular weight bearing exercise that strengthens muscles and joints at least two to three times a week. Inhealth.ie offer a choice selection of Bone & Joint supportive supplements from market leading brands chosen for their potency and effectiveness, including Eskimo 3 with Vitamin E Liquid, D-Pearls Pharma Nord and Omega-3 Pharma Nord to a selection from Quest such as Quest Vitamin B6, Quest Omega 3 and Quest 3+6. Choose from the award winning NHP Osteo Plus to Biocare and Eskimo Brain 3-6-9 Flash.
