The drug is a type of Vitamin D and helps the body absorb calcium as well as phosphate properly, to prevent the development of related health problems.

    How does this medication work?

    This kit is used to maintain and balance the parathyroid hormone in the body. It is a form of vitamin D and helps in the absorption of calcium and phosphate in the body. Calcium Carbonate is minerals which help build and maintain bones. Zinc is a supplement that is generally used to treat depressive disorder and diarrhea in some cases. Mechanism of action for such a supplement is simple. It merely looks to supply the mineral, which may have been lost or absent in the body, otherwise. Risedronate is used in the treatment of osteoporosis. The drug affects hydroxyapatite and inhibits FPP synthase., thereby halting the biosynthesis of isoprenoid lipids. As a result bone reabsorption and turnover is reduced.
