Calcium Salts
CALCIUM SALTS (PhosLo®, Citracal®, and many others) are needed by the body to maintain normal nerve, muscle, bone, blood, and tissue structure and function. Calcium supplements treat or prevent calcium deficiency in patients whose calcium needs are greater than the amounts supplied by a normal diet (most often children, teenagers, pregnant or nursing women, or post-menopausal women). Calcium helps prevent the bone disease osteoporosis, in which bones become porous and easily broken. Calcium salts also help remove too much potassium or magnesium from the body; to bind phosphate during dialysis; or to improve heart function. Some calcium salts are also used as antacids. Generic tablets of calcium salts are available Source:,3915,7907%7CCalcium+Salts,00.html
