Active ingredients

UNII: OFG5EXG60L - RISEDRONATE SODIUM

Risedronic acid is a pyridinyl bisphosphonate that binds to bone hydroxyapatite and inhibits osteoclast-mediated bone resorption. The bone turnover is reduced while the osteoblast activity and bone mineralisation is preserved.

UNII: H0G9379FGK - CALCIUM CARBONATE

Calcium carbonate releases, in a pH-dependent manner, calcium ions in the stomach. Calcium carbonate is widely used as antacid and extensively used as a dietary supplement.
