Jalcium-T Capsule 15’s belongs to the class of ‘Multi-minerals’ primarily used to treat low blood calcium levels. Jalcium-T Capsule 15’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). Jalcium-T Capsule 15’s can also be given to pregnant, nursing, and postmenopausal women to ensure that they are getting enough calcium. Additionally, Jalcium-T Capsule 15’s is used to treat hyperparathyroidism (overactive parathyroid glands) and metabolic bone disease in people with chronic kidney disease, surgery, or other conditions.
Jalcium-T Capsule 15’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.
