About Calciflex-XT Tablet 10’s

Calciflex-XT Tablet 10’sbelongs to the class of ‘Multi-minerals’ primarily used to treat low blood calcium levels. Calciflex-XT Tablet 10’s effectively treats various conditions caused by low calcium levels in the body, such as osteoporosis (weak and brittle bones), osteomalacia/rickets (weak bones), hypoparathyroidism (low levels of parathyroid hormone), and latent tetany (a muscle disease with low blood calcium levels). Calciflex-XT Tablet 10’s can also be given to pregnant, nursing, and postmenopausal women to ensure that they are getting enough calcium. Additionally, Calciflex-XT Tablet 10’s is used to treat hyperparathyroidism (overactive parathyroid glands) and metabolic bone disease in people with chronic kidney disease, surgery, or other conditions.

Calciflex-XT Tablet 10’s consists of three medicines, namely: Calcium carbonate (mineral), Calcitriol (Vitamin D3), and Zinc (mineral). Calcium is a mineral that is used to prevent or treat a calcium deficiency. It provides essential nutrients to maintain bone formation and maintenance. Calcitriol is a synthetic version of Vitamin D3 and treats calcium deficiency with hypoparathyroidism (the parathyroid glands’ decreased activity) and metabolic bone diseases in people with chronic kidney failure. It raises Vitamin D levels and thereby increases calcium levels in the blood. This helps in improving the absorption rate of calcium from the intestine. Zinc is a mineral that has an essential role in bone health. Zinc helps to stimulate osteoblastic bone formation and mineralization.

Medicinal Benefits

Calciflex-XT Tablet 10’s is a combination of three drugs, namely; Calcium carbonate (mineral), Calcitriol (Vitamin D3) and Zinc (mineral) used to treat low blood calcium levels and various associated conditions caused by low calcium levels in the body, such as osteoporosis (weak and brittle bones), osteomalacia/rickets (weak bones), hypoparathyroidism (low levels of parathyroid hormone), and tetany (a muscle disease with low blood calcium levels). Calcium carbonate is a mineral and prevents or treats calcium deficiency. It helps to maintain bone and teeth health. Calcitriol, a synthetic form of Vitamin D3, treats calcium deficiency with hypoparathyroidism (the parathyroid glands’ decreased activity) and metabolic bone diseases in people with chronic kidney failure. Zinc is an important mineral in the normal growth and development of the skeletal system. It helps maintain bone density by increasing protein synthetase, which helps protect bone health.
