Calcium play very important role in the body. Our product is used to prevent or treat low blood calcium levels in the people who do not get enough calcium from their diets. it is necessary for normal functioning of nerves, cells , muscles and bones. If there is not enough calcium in the blood, then the body will take calcium from bones, thereby weakening bones.
As you all know about kidney stones. And we have to consider only increase of urine volume as a means of stone prevention. Supersaturation with respect to the calcium stones depends upon urine concentrations of calcium, oxalate, phosphate, and citrate, and, in the case of calcium phosphate stones, or uric acid stones, urine pH. Giving citrate salts can reduce urine calcium excretion and increase urine citrate. Urine citrate binds urine calcium in a soluble citrate complex, which reduced calcium salt supersaturations. Citrate inhibits crystal formation, growth and aggregation. The alkaline citrate salts can raise urine pH.So, citrate derivatives of calcium are also useful in kidney stones.
