CALCIUM C SANDOZ 10 EFFERVESCENT TABLETS
Calcium-Sandoz is a calcium with vitamin c supplement used for supplementation of the two.
Calcium Sandoz is essential for the functional integrity of the nervous, muscular, and skeletal systems. It plays a role in normal heart function, kidney function, respiration, blood coagulation, and cell membrane and small blood vessels permeability. Also, calcium-Sandoz helps to regulate the release and storage of neurotransmitters (chemicals that transmit messages in your system) and hormones, the uptake and binding of amino acids for making of proteins and? absorption of vitamin B12.It’s uses may also include protection against immune system deficiencies, eye diseases, and even skin wrinkling. It has been proven to be a good remedy for common cold and alleviating flu symptoms.
Calcium is also essential in bone mineralization and lack of it leads to fractures. Since the functions of calcium are essential for life, when there is a disturbance in the calcium balance because of dietary deficiency or other causes, the stores of calcium in bone may be depleted to fill the body’s more urgent needs. Therefore, on long term, normal mineralization of bone depends on adequate amounts of total body calcium that should be ingested through diet.
CALCIUM SUPPLEMENTATION IN PREGNANCY/REPRODUCTION
Second and third trimesters: Some studies have shown that calcium supplementation begun in the second trimester may be effective in lowering blood pressure in pregnant women with pregnancy-induced hypertension or pre-eclampsia, both of which may possibly be associated with increased calcium demand of the fetus during the last trimester. During pregnancy, there is an increased need for calcium to mineralize fetal bones and to increase the maternal skeletal mass in preparation for lactation. This therefore means that insufficient intake in time of high demand will always cause deficiencies. Calcium supplements during pregnancy are therefore necessary since standard prenatal vitamins along with normal intake of dairy products may not provide sufficient elemental calcium for the average pregnant woman.
CALCIUM SUPPLEMENTATION IN THE ELDERLY
