Calcium Lactate 1000mg antacid - 60 tablets

What is Calcium Lactate and how does it work?


Calcium lactate is a white crystalline salt made by the action of lactic acid on calcium carbonate. It is used in foods (as a baking powder) and given medicinally.  In medicine, calcium lactate is most commonly used as an antacid and also to treat calcium deficiencies.  Calcium deficiencies may be caused by inadequate intake of calcium as well as several medical conditions. If the intestines are unable to absorb adequate amounts of calcium, a deficiency occurs. Calcium is necessary for many normal functions of your body, especially bone formation and maintenance. Insufficient levels of Vitamin D or parathyroid hormone in the body can also cause calcium deficiencies. Calcium deficiency can lead to osteoporosis, brittle bones and weak teeth.

Calcium is essential for many functions in the body, including:
  • regulating the heartbeat
  • conducting nerve impulses
  • stimulating hormone secretions
  • clotting blood
  • building and maintaining healthy bones.

Do not take calcium lactate or antacids that contain calcium without first asking your doctor if you also take other medicines. Calcium can make it harder for your body to absorb certain medicines. Calcium lactate works best if you take it with food.
