    Uses :

    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. In kidney failure patients, calcium helps to reduce the parathyroid hormone levels. Calcium is also used to treat the symptoms of premenstrual syndrome (PMS) (e.g. mood swings, pain, food cravings, bloating, etc.) in women. The salt form of calcium is used to treat indigestion problems and heartburn.

    Mode of drug action


    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 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.

    What are the common side effects?

    The common side effects include belching, gas formation, bloating, and constipation.
