    Coral calcium Coral calcium is essential for the human body for various purposes. Calcium can be taken together with Vitamin D to treat bone problems such as thinning of bones.

The salt form of calcium is used to treat indigestion problems and heartburn. Vitamin D3 Vitamin D3 is used for the treatment of vitamin D deficiency, treatment of bone disorders such as rickets, osteoporosis, osteomalacia, treatment of hypoparathyroidism, and other conditions where vitamin D3 is deficient which include celiac disease, Crohn’s disease, and liver problems.

    Mode of drug action


    Coral calcium Coral calcium is an essential mineral for the formation of bones. The increase in the levels of calcium in the blood inhibits the parathyroid gland from secreting the parathyroid hormone. Calcium 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. Vitamin D3 Vitamin D3 or 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.
