Lithohenz Tablet is a dietary supplement, used for the prevention and treatment of calcium and vitamin D deficiency, osteoarthritis (degenerative joint disease), osteoporosis (loss of bone), weak bones, and hyperparathyroidism.
It contains calcium and vitamin D3 as active ingredients that helps meet up the calcium requirements of the body when the dietary intake is not sufficient.
If there is calcium deficiency in the blood, then the body will take calcium from bones, thereby weakening them. Calcium carbonate plays a very important role in the body for the normal functioning of nerves, cells, muscle, and bone. Vitamin D helps absorb calcium and phosphorus and is essential for building and keeping strong bones.
Always take Lithohenz Tablet exactly as advised by your doctor. Before taking it, inform your doctor if you have high levels of calcium or vitamin D in your blood, or any heart, kidney, liver, immune, bowel or stomach disease. Ask your doctor before taking it during pregnancy or breastfeeding.
