Uses Of SUPRACAL PRO TABLET

Uses Of Salt: Vitamin D3

Uses:

  • Bone strength
  • Prevention of bone disorders like rickets, osteomalacia
  • Prevention of Osteoporosis
  • Vitamin D is also used with other medications to treat low levels of calcium or phosphate caused by certain disorders (such as hypoparathyroidism, familial hypophosphatemia and pseudo-hypoparathyroidism).
  • It may also be used in kidney disease to keep calcium levels normal and have normal bone growth.
  • Vitamin D drops are given to breast-fed babies as breast milk has low levels of vitamin D usually.

Vitamin D (D2, D3, D4) is a vitamin that is fat soluble. It helps the body in absorbing phosphorus or calcium.

It is important to have adequate levels of vitamin D, phosphorus and calcium for building strong bones and also maintaining them.

Body gets vitamin D from sunlight. Any hindrance between skin and sunlight, like protective clothing, sunscreen, staying indoors or having limited exposure to sunlight, dark skin etc. may prevent absorption of vitamin D by body.

As the age advances, body’s ability of absorb sunlight reduces.

Vegetarian people are more prone to vitamin D deficiency as it is found more in animal based foods.

What Is Anaemia

  • In Anaemia, lesser oxygen is carried around the body by red blood cells. Anemia can be of different types.

What Is Common cold

The common cold is simply referred to as cold as well. The common cold is a contagious disease caused by viruses. It occurs in the upper part of the respiratory tract which affects mainly the nose. The body parts that may get affected by common cold are voice box, sinus, and throat. Symptoms and signs of the common cold may start to appear within two days after the exposure to the virus.The common cold is accompanied by a headache, sneezing, runny nose, sore throat, coughing and sometimes fever as well. Generally, it might take a week to 10 days in the recovery. Some of the symptoms can stay even for three weeks. When the symptoms of common cold worsen, it can turn into Pneumonia.

The force of around 200 viruses is involved for causing the common cold. A virus known as rhinovirus is the most prevalent cause of common cold. Common cold vaccines are not yet available. The antidote of the common cold is also not yet made but relieve to the patients can be provided by treating the symptoms.

In humans, the common cold is one of the most reoccurring infectious diseases. Averagely, an adult may suffer from cold from a couple of times to four times in a year. Cold occurs mainly in winters. 

What Is Diarrhoea

  • Diarrhoea is an increased frequency of bowel movements (stools) and also increased looseness of the motion. Diarrhoea can be due to higher fluid secretion into the intestine, minimal fluid absorption by the intestines or swift passage of stool from the intestine.
  • Acute Diarrhoea stays for 4 to 5 days but the chronic Diarrhoea can last up to 4 weeks. Recurrent and severe Diarrhoea can be a sign of an intestinal disease. 

What Is Arrhythmias (abnormal heart rhythm)

Arrhythmias means the heartbeat is not in rhythm. Also called dysrhythmia, this condition is characterized by irregularity in the heartbeats. Generally, it feels like the heart is beating too fast, or too slow, or skips a beat or flutters.

When the heart does not beat in sequence or beats erratically, it fails to pump blood to the vital organs like brain, lungs and other parts of the body. This damages the organs and can cause organ failure.

Arrhythmias can generally be harmless, but if the irregularities in the heartbeats are high or due to damaged heart conditions, then arrhythmias can be dangerous or can also be fatal.

The different types of arrhythmias which can be seen in people are:

  • Premature atrial contractions: These are extra heartbeats which originate in the upper chambers of the heart called atria. These contractions are harmless and generally do not require any treatment.
  • Premature ventricular contractions: These are the skipped heartbeats which we generally feel and are the most common type of arrhythmias. Stress, caffeine and nicotine are believed to cause these. Sometimes premature ventricular contractions are linked to heart disease.
  • Atrial fibrillation: This is the condition when both the upper chambers of the heart beat in an irregular way and are not in synchronisation with the lower chambers.
  • Atrial flutter: It happens in people with heart disease, mostly few days after surgery.
  • Paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardia: Rapid heart rate which starts and ends suddenly.
  • Accessory pathway tachycardias: A rapid heart rate due to an extra path between the atria (upper chambers) and the ventricles (lower chambers) of the heart. The impulses travel through the normal route as well as the extra pathway causing the heartbeats to travel unusually fast within the heart, thereby causing a very fast heart rate.
  • AV nodal reentrant tachycardia: This is also another type of rapid heartbeat. It is caused by an extra pathway in the AV node of the heart. The patient suffers from palpitations, fainting or even heart failure.
  • Ventricular tachycardia: A very fast heart rhythm originating from the lower chambers (ventricles) of the heart.
  • Ventricular fibrillation: This is a serious problem and an emergency. It is caused because of the ventricles quiver and fails to pump blood to the different parts of the body.
  • Bradyarrhythmias: Due to a problem in the heart’s electrical system, the heart rate becomes slow.
  • Sinus node dysfunction: This is also a slow heart beat problem caused by problems in the sinus node of the heart.
  • Long QT syndrome: Disorder in the heart’s rhythm characterized by fast and uncoordinated heart beats. This is a potentially dangerous condition.
  • Heart block: In this condition, there can be a delay or entire blockage of the electrical impulse when it travels from the sinus node of the heart to the lower chambers. As a result, the heartbeat becomes irregular or may become slow.

What Is Immunity building

Immunity building refers to any measures taken to assist and strengthen the body’s immune system to function optimally and to help ward off disease. Proper functioning is necessary for us to maintain ideal health.

The state in which the immune system is functioning sub-optimally is called immunodeficiency. Immunodeficiency states can have serious consequences e.g. predisposing to life-threatening infective diseases or cancer. Overfunctioning of the immune system is also common. Conditions in which the immune system over functions are hypersensitivity reactions or allergies, as well as autoimmune diseases (when the immune system recognises the body's cells as "foreign" and starts to attack them).

The immune system is intricately and very detailed in its design. The system is divided into innate and adaptive immunity. Innate immunity is the body’s first defence against external factors. These include physical defence mechanisms such as skin, mucosa and cell walls, as well as scavenger immune molecules that catch foreign particles in the blood and lymphatic streams.

 It is an immediate defence mechanism and non-specific. It does not adapt over time. White blood cells called macrophages and phagocytes form part of the body’s innate system. Once the innate immune system recognises a threat to the body, these cells activate a system called the complement cascade which leads to further activation of more of the immune system's cells.

The adaptive immune system is more focused and contains antibodies that are formed after exposure to specific foreign substances called antigens. Antibodies are called immunoglobulins, and lymphocytes are the cells responsible for activation of the innate immune system.

Poor diet, fatigue, stress as well as certain substances or medications can all lead to over- or underperformance of the immune system. Organs that form part of the immune systems include your spleen, tonsils/ adenoids, lymphatic system and bone marrow.

What Is Osteoarthritis

  • Osteoarthritis (OA) is also known as degenerative joint disease, degenerative arthritis is a chronic condition that can harm any join. However, the most likely affected parts are knees, hips, lower back, and neck, small joints of the fingers, thumb and the big toes’ base.

Causes of diseases where SUPRACAL PRO TABLET is used

What Are The Causes Of Anaemia

  • Deficiency of nutrients like iron, folic acid, vitamin B 12, sickle cell anemia (a genetic blood disorder) or kidney disease can be amongst few causes of anemia.
  • The type of food you eat also affects the absorption of iron and folic acid.

What Are The Causes Of Common cold

  • The common cold is the infection causes in the upper-respiratory tract. It is caused by the attack of the viruses. It is a myth that not wearing enough cloth in winters or cold weather causes the cold. Some of the ways one can catch infections are as follows:
  • Exposure to the virus by touching any contaminated object like cell phone remote controls, laptops, etc. or any virus containing surface like door knobs, taps, etc.
  • Close contact with an infected person.
  • Using the personal belongings of a person suffering from the common cold like the towel, clothes, etc.
  • A mild infection may be caused in adults by three types of viruses responsible foe cold. However, in old people, children, and individuals with a weak immune system it can cause serious lower respiratory tract problem. Also, patients with heart and lung diseases, asthmatic patients, and premature babies are at a higher risk of getting the complications like pneumonia and bronchitis. 

What Are The Causes Of Diarrhoea

  • The main cause is the virus that infects gut. However various other causes are an allergy to a food, alcohol, diabetes, diabetes to the intestines, medications, Laxatives, radiation therapy, running, surgery, cancers, troublesome nutrition absorption.

What Are The Causes Of Arrhythmias (abnormal heart rhythm)

Whenever there is an interruption in the electric impulses travelling across the heart and hence causes the heart to contract, it can result in arrhythmia.  

There are many reasons  which can make the heart to dysfunction:

  • Diabetes.
  • Hyper tension (High BP), heart disease.
  • Hyperthyroidism.
  • Stress.
  • Excessive alcohol consumption, drug abuse, heavy smoking.
  • Excessive caffeine.
  • Imbalance of electrolytes like sodium and potassium in the blood.
  • Scarring or injury to heart after a heart attack.
  • Changes in the structure of the heart.
  • Post surgery healing.

People with a normal and healthy heart may also experience an arrhythmia. 

What Are The Causes Of Immunity building

Causes of reduced immunity can either be intrinsic/ hereditary or acquired.

Intrinsic or primary immunodeficiencies are inborn genetic errors. There are more than hundred different types and forms of primary immunodeficiency syndromes described. These include immunodeficiency syndromes such as selective IgA deficiency, DiGeorge syndrome and Ataxia Telangiectasia.

Secondary or acquired immunodeficiency states can be due to diseases or conditions such as:

Systemic disorders:

  • HIV/AIDS
  • Cancer
  • Diabetes
  • Malnutrition or being underweight
  • Auto-immune disorders

Medications or substances:

  • Long-term corticosteroid use
  • Tumour Necrosis Factor (TNF) used in auto-immune diseases like inflammatory bowel disease or rheumatoid arthritis. Chemotherapy or radiation.
  • Alcoholism

Physiological states:

  • Pregnancy is a normal physiological state of lowered immunity.
  • Ageing is also a natural process that causes lowered immunity.

What Are The Causes Of Osteoarthritis

  • Aging and obesity are the most common causes, though there are many more reasons that can cause OA.    

Worst Foods With SUPRACAL PRO TABLET

What Are The Worst Foods For Bone health

  • High-Sodium Foods: The more salt you eat, the more calcium you lose as salt causes excessive calcium excretion through the kidneys.
  • Sugary snacks, high sugar items
  • Soda, cola drinks as they lead to higher risk of hip bone fracture
  • Caffeine
  • Alchohol: Heavy and chronic consumption of alcohol may result in decreased bone formation, higher chances of bone fracture, low bone mass, and delay in fracture healing.
  • Legumes
  • Inflammatory foods

What Are The Worst Foods For Anaemia

  • Junk food.
  • Coffee, tea, red wine as these inhibit the absorption of iron.
  • White bread.
  • Sugar
  • Desserts

What Are The Worst Foods For Common cold

Some of the foods to cut down to curb common cold and its symptoms are as follows:

  • Avoid consuming alcoholic beverages: Immunity of one’s body gets weakened by alcohol, also body experiences dehydration. Such conditions make one even more vulnerable to common cold. So, one should not consume alcohol, especially in a hefty amount to prevent the common cold. Some of the beverages to avoid are beer, wine, tequila, vodka, and whiskey.
  • Dairy Products: The Dairy product should be cut down during the common cold, as consuming dairy items may worsen the mucus formation. Excessive mucus causes the common cold to irritate even more. Some of the dairy products that one should avoid completely are milkshakes, cold coffee, milk ice creams, butter, cheese, yoghurt, cream, pudding, and other milk desserts.
  • Packed Juices: When one is suffering from the common cold he/she must stay away from packed fruit juices as they consist of high amount of added sugar. Sugar decreases the efficiency of WBC to fight against infections. The Vitamin C benefits from the packed juice are cancelled by excessive sugar present in them.   

What Are The Worst Foods For Diarrhoea

Don’t consume the following if suffering from Diarrhoea:

  • Fatty foods as they make Diarrhoea worse
  • Dairy products except for yogurt, as Diarrhoea leads to lactose intolerance

Sugar not only causes an  inflammation, but also has the ability to cause palpitations in the heart. So limit your intake of sugar.

Too much salt is also bad for the heart. Salt causes irregularities in blood pressure levels which in turn affects heart activity. Hence reduce consumption of salt. A large amount of salt is used as the preservative in processed food. Read labels before you stock your kitchen cabinets with processed food.

Fatty food, junk food and food which is deep fried are all bad for the heart. They increase cholesterol and clog arteries, thereby increasing the chances of heart stroke.

What Are The Worst Foods For Immunity building

  • Sugar and refined carbohydrates. High glycemic index carbohydrates and sugar wreak havoc on your body's immune system, by causing insulin spikes and blood sugar surges, increasing inflammation and lowering immunity.
  • Processed foods especially high in colourants, preservatives and chemicals all increase inflammation and lower immunity.
  • Foods high in saturated fatty acids.
  • Excessive alcohol intake reduces white blood cells in the immune system after long term use.

What Are The Worst Foods For Osteoarthritis

Foods that make Osteoarthritis worse are:

  • Refined carbohydrates
  • Meat and Eggs
