BENEFITS OF LARETOL CAPSULE
In Treatment of Calcium deficiency
In Treatment of Post menopausal osteoporosis
Osteoporosis is a common condition that weakens bones, making them fragile and more likely to break. It often occurs in women after menopause. This condition can be treated with bone-strengthening medicines. Laretol Capsule helps in the absorption of more calcium from your intestine and slows down the rate at which bone is broken down in your body. This maintains bone density and reduces your risk of breaking a bone.
You can help improve the strength of your bones by doing regular exercise (especially weight-bearing exercise), eating healthy foods containing calcium and vitamin D, and reducing alcohol and tobacco consumption.
