Esvical Forte consists of Ca carbonate, vit D, simethicone.
Ca carbonate - this antacid is useful for the temporary relief of occasional indigestion and heartburn. Frequent, daily or nightly symptoms usually mean a more serious problem. Antacids by themselves do not correct these problems. The medications that are now available to treat acid problems are generally superior to antacids. The second and more important use of calcium carbonate is as a source of calcium, necessary for bones and teeth and to prevent osteoporosis. A quart of milk contains about 1500 mg of calcium which is about what you need. Otherwise this or a similar calcium preparation can be taken (see osteoporosis diet).
vit D - Treatment and/or prevention of vitamin D deficiency states.
simethicone - Esvical Forte (simethicone) allows gas bubbles in the stomach and intestines to come together more easily, which allows for easier passage of gas.
