Introduction

D3 FLOW SACHET helps your body to absorb a mineral called calcium. It is important for maintaining strong bones. This medicine is used if your diet does not provide enough and may be used to treat certain bone conditions such as thinning of the bones (osteoporosis).

D3 FLOW SACHET should be taken as directed by your doctor. It is best taken with or after food as this helps your body absorb it and you should take it regularly to get the most benefit. If you are using it to treat osteoporosis you will be prescribed other medicines as well. This medicine may be only part of a complete program of treatment that also includes making changes to your diet and taking calcium and vitamin supplements. Learn about the foods you should eat to make sure you get enough calcium and vitamin D in your diet.

D3 FLOW SACHET has few side effects and none are common. If you take too much you may feel weakness, muscle pain, or have a metallic taste in your mouth.

Before taking this medicine, tell your doctor if you have high levels of calcium in your blood or if you have any heart, kidney, or liver disease. Some other medicines can decrease the absorption of vitamin D3 so let your doctor know all other medicines you are taking to make sure you are safe. This medicine may help during pregnancy when your body needs more vitamin D but too much could harm your baby. While using this medicine you may have extra blood tests and possibly X-rays.

Uses of D3 Flow Sachet

Benefits of D3 Flow Sachet

In Vitamin D deficiency

Normally your body creates vitamin D from sunlight, but you will be prescribed this medicine as a supplement if you do not have enough. It is important to keep taking it regularly to get the benefits. You may not notice it working but keep taking it in order to protect your bones. Additionally, it can boost your immunity and increase the body's resistance against various infections.

In Osteoporosis

Osteoporosis is a common condition that weakens bones, making them fragile and more likely to break. It often occurs in women after menopause. Vitamin D is important for absorption of calcium and helps regulate the amount of calcium and phosphate in your body. If you do not have enough calcium it can damage your bones. It will help to keep your bones strong and healthy and reduce the risk of them becoming weak and more likely to break.

You can help improve the strength of your bones by taking regular exercise (especially weight-bearing exercise), eating healthy foods containing calcium and Vitamin D, and reducing your consumption of alcohol and tobacco.
