Hi Cal Liquid Calcium and Vitamin D 150's

Hi Cal general information

What is Hi Cal used for?

Hi Cal capsules are a dietary supplement used to help maintain healthy bones and prevent osteoporosis, which is often associated with lack of oestrogen in postmenopausal women and also with aging.  Osteoporosis is the loss of bone mass resulting in brittle bones, which increases risk of fracture, particularly in the hip and vertebrae.  This can be painful, debilitating and can cause loss of height if the fracture occurs in the spine.  Osteoporosis can be caused by some medications that can cause bone loss, such as anti-inflammatory corticosteroids; also by smoking and excess alcohol intake.  Weak bones can be the result of defective calcium metabolism, for example due to kidney disease or hyperparathyroidism (over activity of the parathyroid gland, which is involved in calcium metabolism), low calcium diet, defective vitamin D metabolism or vitamin D deficiency.  Weak bones can result in rickets, a disease in children characterised by softening of the bone due to low density bone formation; also osteomalacia, softening of the bones in adults.  Calcium is the most abundant mineral in the body and is involved in many physiological processes, including, nerve transmission, contraction and dilation of blood vessels, intracellular signalling and hormone secretion, as well as mineralisation of bones.  Vitamin D also has an important role to play in maintaining healthy bones and is synthesised in the skin by the action of sunlight; it is also obtained in the diet from oily fish, eggs and dairy products.  Hi Cal capsules can be used to support healthy bone density by promoting optimal calcium levels and providing vitamin D supplementation, where needed.  

How does Hi Cal work?

Hi Cal capsules contain a combination of calcium and vitamin D in liquid form for increased absorption.  Hi Cal capsules contain calcium in the form of calcium carbonate, which contains the equivalent of 40% calcium).  Calcium balance in the body is strictly regulated and the bones and teeth act as reservoirs for calcium.  Low blood calcium levels can cause calcium release from the bones, which can cause loss of bone density.  Bone turnover is a normal part of bone remodelling, which is a dynamic process that allows bones to grow and repair.  The balance between bone formation (laying down of new bone tissue) and bone resorption (the process for removal of old bone tissue) changes with age, it is therefore, important to maintain calcium intake.  Cholecalciferol (or Vitamin D3) in Hi Cal capsules is a natural prohormone of calcitriol (1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D3), which is the active metabolite of vitamin D3.  Calcitriol is converted from Vitamin D3 in the kidneys into a hormone that regulates calcium metabolism by controlling absorption of calcium and phosphate by the intestine and their secretion by the kidneys and it also regulates bone remodelling (bone formation and resorption) and bone mineralisation.  If there is a lack of Vitamin D3 then calcium levels may become low and this contributes to brittle bones and to osteoporosis.  Cholecalciferol in Hi Cal capsules helps promote absorption of calcium from the intestines and balance normal bone remodelling, thereby, helping to make bones stronger and more resistant to fracture.   

What does Hi Cal contain?

Hi Cal capsules contain the active ingredients calcium carbonate (875mg, equivalent to 350mg calcium) and cholecalciferol (2.5 mcg, equivalent to 100IU vitamin D3), used in combination to promote healthy bones.  They also contain soya bean oil, lecithin, calcium phosphate, magnesium stearate, vegetable cellulose, vegetable cellulose, titanium dioxide.

What are the side effects of Hi Cal?

The most commonly reported side effects when taking Hi Cal capsules include bloating and constipation due to Calcium carbonate.  If taken in too high a dose, vitamin D can cause weakness, fatigue, sleepiness, headache, loss of appetite, dry mouth, metallic taste, nausea, vomiting.

When should Hi Cal not be used?

You should not use Hi Cal capsules if you:

  • are allergic to calcium carbonate, cholecalciferol or any ingredients in Hi Cal
  • are pregnant or are breastfeeding, without discussion with your doctor
  • have severe kidney disease
  • have hypercalcaemia (high calcium levels in the blood)
  • have hypercalcuria (excess urinary calcium secretion)
  • are taking medicines that interact with Hi Cal, including, bisphosphonates for osteoporosis, fluoroquinolone antibiotics like ciprafloxin, tetracycline antibiotics like doxycycline, thyroid hormone, the anticonvulsant phenytoin, bisphosphonates like tiludronic acid for paget’s disease, thiazide diuretics, aluminium and magnesium containing antacids, some laxatives, anti-inflammatory glucocorticoids like prednisone, orlistat for weight loss, cholestyramine for cholesterol lowering

What medications interact with Hi Cal?

Several medications interact with Hi Cal capsules and should either not be taken while you are taking Hi Cal or only after discussion and instruction from your doctor:  

  • Drugs that increase risk of hypercalcaemia (high calcium levels in the blood) or hypercalcuria (excess urinary calcium secretion) with Hi Cal: thiazide diuretics
  • Drugs that affect Hi Cal: anti-inflammatory glucocorticoids like prednisone, aluminium and magnesium containing antacids, some laxatives, orlistat for weight loss, cholestyramine for cholesterol lowering,
  • Drugs that are affected by Hi Cal: bisphosphonates for osteoporosis, fluoroquinolone antibiotics like ciprafloxin, tetracycline antibiotics like doxycycline, thyroid hormone, the anticonvulsant phenytoin, bisphosphonates like tiludronic acid for paget’s disease
