Buying Guide For Bio Combination (BC) Medicines

Bio combination

You might be aware of homeopathic medicines which are commonly used to treat and prevent various health problems. A recent addition to these medicines is bio combination (BC) medicines which are widely used to improve overall health. Moreover, these tablets are considered safe for everyone including children and old people.

What are bio combinations?

Bio Combination (BC) medicines are homeopathic combinations which contain salts developed by Dr. Schuessler. The body contains around 12 biochemical minerals. Any imbalance in these minerals can create a favourable environment for bacterial growth and increase the risk of illness. The bio combination salts help to maintain the correct balance of these minerals and aid in the proper functioning of the body. The 12 biochemical minerals are mixed in different combinations to produce 28 different BC medicines.

Here we describe the top 11 common types of BC in detail. But before that, you need to know about the dosage, contraindications and precautions regarding the use of these medicines.

Dosage

To know the right dose of medicine, consult your physician before taking these bio combinations. The typical dosage of BC medicines is:

Adults — 4 tablets each twice a day

Children — 2 tablets each twice a day

Contraindications

There are no contraindications reported so far. But if you are a pregnant woman or a lactating mother, then consult a homeopathic physician before taking these bio combinations.

Precautions

-Maintain a gap of at least 30 minutes between meals and medication.

-Avoid taking two different bio combinations or allopathic medications with BC at the same time.

-Do not take these medicines after having foods that a emit strong odour such as onion, hing, garlic and coffee.

-Avoid taking these medicines just after brushing your teeth or flossing as the strong smell in these products can reduce the efficacy of the medicine.
