Calcium Sandoz contains a rich source of calcium which is an essential mineral, necessary for bone formation and maintenance.
Calcium Sandoz is used in the prevention and treatment of calcium deficiency and may be used, with other medicines, to prevent and treat a condition called osteoporosis (weakening of the bones). Calcium Sandoz is also used, together with vitamin D3, for the treatment of rickets (softening of growing bones in children) and osteomalacia (softening of adults bones).
Calcium is absorbed from the intestine and distributed throughout the body in the blood. Calcium plays an important role in several body functions. It is essential for nerve, muscle and heart function as well as for the clotting of blood. In addition, it is necessary for many hormones to work properly in the body. To carry out these various roles, calcium must be available in the appropriate concentration.
