How Shelcal Tablet works

Shelcal XT Tablet is a combination of five medicines : Calcium Carbonate, Vitamin D3, Methylcobalamin, L-Methyl Folate Calcium, and Pyridoxal-5-phosphate. Calcium carbonate is a dietary supplement used when the amount of calcium taken in the diet is not enough. Vitamin D3 is a form of vitamin D. It raises vitamin D levels in your blood. This in turn raises calcium levels in your blood by helping you absorb more calcium from food. Methylcobalamin is a form of vitamin B12 that restores its level in the body thereby helping in treating certain anemias and nerve problems. L-Methyl Folate Calcium and Pyridoxal-5-phosphate are nutritional supplements that provide essential nutrients to our body and improve overall health.
