This softgel contains Calcitriol, Calcium Citrate, Magnesium and Zinc. Calcitriol is a form of vitamin D. Calcitriol administration enhances calcium absorption, reduces serum alkaline phosphatase levels, and may reduce elevated parathyroid hormone levels and the histological manifestations of osteitis fibrosa cystica (a skeletal disorder caused by hyperparathyroidism) and defective mineralization. Calcium is an important mineral for the formation of normal bone tissue. Magnesium helps keep calcium in the cell to do its job far better. Zinc is known to play an important role in the bone remodeling cycle and is also essential for many bodily functions including the immune response, reproduction, growth and development, and neurological roles.
The main benefits of this combination are:
âUseful in bone health
âUseful in joint pain
âIncrease muscle power
âIncrease elasticity of the joint
âMaintain calcium level in body
Calcium being the most abundant mineral in the human body, it is used in the formation of bones, relaxation and contraction of blood vessels, the transmission of neuronal messages and secretion of hormones. Calcium is also used in the body for blood clotting. This prevents the loss of excess blood when bleeding. The absence of calcium in our bodies would slowly make our cell deteriorate and perish eventually. Calcium citrate is used maintain calcium levels in the body in case there is any reduction of calcium levels in the body.
Magnesium helps maintain normal muscle and nerve function, keeps heart rhythm steady, supports a healthy immune system, and keeps bones strong. Magnesium also helps regulate blood sugar levels, promotes normal blood pressure, and is known to be involved in energy metabolism and protein synthesis.
Zinc is essential for many bodily functions including the immune response, reproduction, growth and development, and neurological roles. Zinc acts as a cofactor for enzymes that are involved in protein and nucleic acid synthesis, and is known to play an important role in the bone remodeling cycle. Where it is involved as a cofactor for proteins involved in deposition and resorption of the bone matrix: plays a regulatory role and is involved in the structure of the bone itself.
Calcitriol is a form of vitamin D that is used to treat and prevent low levels of calcium in the blood. Calcitrol works by helping the body to use more of the calcium found in foods or supplements. It is also sometimes used to increase the amount of calcium in the blood of premature babies.
