    Calcium Calcium 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.

Calcium ions are directly absorbed into the intestinal cells, and citrate complex enters through paracellular absorption. Calcitriol Calcitriol promotes absorption of dietary calcium from the gastrointestinal tract and increases renal tubular reabsorption, thereby increasing blood calcium levels. It also promotes calcium release from bone cells. Zinc Zinc supplements are required for the normal growth of the body. Menaquinone Menaquinone or Vitamin K2-7 is required for coagulation. This vitamin plays a vital role as cofactor for the enzyme γ-glutamyl carboxylase. It is involved in the vitamin K2-7 dependent carboxylation. Carboxylation of vitamin K-dependant proteins facilitates coagulation of blood. Magnesium Magnesium acts by increasing the water content in the intestine which helps in inducing defecation.
