Clinical evidence suggests that calcium is useful for prevention and treatment of osteoporosis and associated fractures. Vitamin-D is also essential for healthy bones as it aids in calcium absorption from the GI tract. In addition to this it stimulates bone formation. Controlled clinical studies shows that calcium and vitamin-D has synergistic effects on bone growth as well as in osteoporosis and fracture prevention.Indications• Treatment of osteoporosis, rickets, osteomalacia, tetany and hypoparathyroidism• In pregnancy & lactation due to increase demand• In kidney disease and pancreatitis• During therapy with antiseizure medications• The prevention and treatment of calcium deficiency/vitamin D deficiency especially in the housebound and institutionalized elderly subjects.Dosage & AdministrationAdults and Elderly and children above 12 years of age: 2 tablets per day, preferably one tablet each morning and evening.Children: Not recommended for children under 12 years.Side EffectsThe use of calcium supplements has, rarely, given rise to mild gastro-intestinal disturbances, such as constipation, flatulence, nausea, gastric pain, diarrhoea.
