ORTHO-TABS®
Vitamin and Mineral Supplement for Bone Health


What Is ORTHO-TABS?*

Introduced by MediNiche in 1997, ORTHO-TABS is the #1 recommended vitamin and mineral supplement recommended by orthopedic surgeons to patients as part of a total care program for bone health.

Developed in conjunction with orthopedic surgeons, ORTHO-TABS contain key bone strengthening components such as calcium with vitamins D and K, magnesium, manganese, and zinc, and hematopoietic (blood building) components folic acid, vitamin B12, copper and vitamin C.  Unlike most bone health supplements, each serving of

ORTHO-TABS contains 800 IU’s of vitamin D; an amount in line with growing scientific support advocating increased amounts of vitamin D.

Each ORTHO-TABS tablet is coated with Opti-Sol™; a safe water based tablet coating system. The Opti-Sol system allows the tablet to dissolve rapidly in the body; making nutrients more available for absorption. Many supplements contain chemical-based tablet coatings that do not dissolve well and therefore may pass through the body without being absorbed.

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.

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 such as Fosamax® or Evista®, 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 postmenopausal women…calcium 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 loose up to 5% of their bone mass during the first five years following menopause.

Young women 12-35 (peak bone building years)…it is of utmost importance that you receive adequate amounts of calcium 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® (Lederle) 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.
