    Mode of drug action


    Calcium orotate Calcium orotate plays a vital role in the body. It supports normal functioning of nerves, cells, bone, and muscles. It provides sufficient calcium useful for the body, as the body takes calcium from bones if enough calcium is not present in the blood. Calcium orotate treats the conditions and makes calcium available for utilization. Calcium citrate Calcium citrate plays a key role in the body. It is a water soluble calcium supplement. It is the combination of calcium salt with citric acid and malic acid. It has high bioavailability and dissolution. When absorbed by the body it releases calcium ions and calcium citrate complex. Calcium ions are directly absorbed into the intestinal cells, and citrate complex enters through paracellular absorption. Cholecalciferol Cholecalciferol is a steroid hormone that regulates calcium and phosphorus absorption, bone mineralization, and vitamin A assimilation. In the body, vitamin D3 is converted into its active form calcitriol. Calcitriol acts by increasing the absorption of calcium and phosphorus, bone resorption, and renal tubular reabsorption of calcium. It also promotes intestinal absorption of calcium. Thus, calcitriol increases the levels of serum calcium. Calcium Calcium is an inorganic salt that neutralizes the hydrochloric acid, this results in the formation of calcium chloride, carbon dioxide, and water, thus increasing the levels of calcium in the body. Calcium is used along with vitamin D3 for better absorption.
