Hi, I am from mumbai. I have a query regarding calcium deficiency that generally happens after the age of 30 in people. Now, I trust himalya brand and would like to go for a product from himalya. However, I am confused because of the word fracture in both the products of himalya. Details of the two products are: 1) hadjod --> accelerates fracture healing & increases bone strength. Active constituents: hadjod contains triterpenoids?-sitosterol, quadrangularins a, b and c, and calcium, which influence quick regeneration of connective tissues around the broken bones. 2) reosto --> phytoestrogens in reosto inhibit bone resorption. Indian bdellium (guggulu) helps in the remineralization of bones, increases bone mineral density (bmd) and supports connective tissues. Its anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties are beneficial in alleviating bone pain. Now, my query is that under normal circumstances which product should I go for? should I look to increase the bone strength or should I look for increasing bone mineral density? or whether these products are in case of healing after fractures and not for regular consumption. Your help would be very much appreciated.

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. Actually to be very honest you do not require any of the above mentioned products. You can just take vitamin d and normal calcium for a period of 3 months. Also regularly do exercises and eat diet which are rich in calcium like milk and milk products. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance. Thanks & regards
