Calorate is the tablet preparation of Calcium Orotate 400 mg & 740mg. Calorate (Calcium Orotate) is a calcium supplement with a functional amino acid chelating ligand – orotic acid. Orotic acid assists the transport of calcium through cellular membrane structures, thus facilitating the intracellular uptake of calcium, particularly in bone. Calcium Orotate also helps in the maintenance of healthy cartilage. Calorate is used to prevent or treat low blood calcium levels in people who do not get enough calcium from their diets.
Adults: As an addition to the daily diet, 2-3 tablets are usually recommended with evening meal or as directed by health care professional. Absorption of calcium is the highest in doses less than or equal to 500 mg. So, taking more than 1,000 mg/day of calcium from supplements may be beneficial if the total amount is taken in divided doses in separate times during the day. Children: Consult your doctor before giving this or any dietary supplement to children.
