    Uses :

    Calcium Calcium is essential for the human body for various purposes. Calcium carbonate can be taken together with Vitamin D to treat bone problems such as thinning of bones. In kidney failure patients, calcium carbonate helps to reduce the parathyroid hormone levels. Calcium carbonate is also used to treat the symptoms of premenstrual syndrome (PMS) (e.g. mood swings, pain, food cravings, bloating, etc.). Cholecalciferol Cholecalciferol or Vitamin D3 is used to treat hyperparathyroidism (increased production of the hormones). In patients with chronic kidney failure, vitamin D3 helps to treat metabolic bone disease and calcium deficiency. It is given during the treatment of rickets disease in children (a bone deformation disorder) which occurs due to vitamin D deficiency.

    Mode of drug action


    Calcium Calcium is an essential mineral for the formation of bones. Increase in the levels of calcium in the blood inhibits the parathyroid gland from secreting the parathyroid hormone. Calcium carbonate works by neutralizing the acid in the stomach. Correcting the calcium levels helps in the adequate release of chemical substances from the brain involved in regulating the ovarian hormones, thus, reducing PMS symptoms. Cholecalciferol Cholecalciferol is a steroid hormone which binds to the vitamin D receptors and helps in the absorption of calcium.
