COMPOSITION

Each film coated tablet contains

Calcium Orotate.......................... 740 Mg

 


DESCRIPTION
Calcium Orotate is a calcium salt of orotic acid ( Vit B13). Orotic acid is a mineral transporter that ensures highest calcium absorption of 95%. This is the only calcium that deposits in the bone. Calcium Orotate remains undissociated in stomach. So, it does not chelate with Fe & Mg. This ensures maximum intestinal calcium absorption and no G.I intolerance. Also optimal Fe & Mg absorption occurs if given concomitantly. Calcium Orotate exhibits vitamin D3 independent Calcium absorption. It ensures highest elemental absorption of 95% as compared to other calcium supplements like Calcium citrate maleate (40%), Calcium aspartate (85%) and Calcium carbonate (8%). It is directly deposited inside the osteoblast, where it dissociates. This leads to maximum bone mineralization. The final outcome of calcium Orotate therapy is powerful recalcification of bone and reverses bone loss and relieves pain.

 Post Menopausal women
 Osteoporosis
 Low back pain

CONTRAINDICATIONS

Hypersensitivity to any of the ingredients, and Hypercalcemia.

One or two tablets daily preferably with food.

 

PRECAUTIONS
Any calcium supplement taken without food may increase the risk of kidney stones. Therefore, it is advisable that calcium orotate be taken with food. Nevertheless, renal calculi are not reported with calcium orotate.

 

DRUG INTERACTIONS
Concomitant use of a bisphosphonate (alendronate, risedronate) and calcium may decrease the absorption of the biphosphonate. Quinolone and calcium when taken together may decrease the absorption of quinolone. Concomitant administration of tetracyclines (Doxycycline) and calcium may decrease the absorption of tetracyclines.

 

ADVERSE EFFECTS
Calcium Orotate is generally well tolerated. Published literature documents no adverse effects.
