Uses of Calcium Aspartate in details
This medication is used to prevent or treat low blood Calcium Aspartate levels in people who do not get enough Calcium Aspartate from their diets. It may be used to treat conditions caused by low Calcium Aspartate levels such as bone loss (osteoporosis), weak bones (osteomalacia/rickets), decreased activity of the parathyroid gland (hypoparathyroidism), and a certain muscle disease (latent tetany). It may also be used in certain patients to make sure they are getting enough Calcium Aspartate (e.g., women who are pregnant, nursing, or postmenopausal, people taking certain medications such as phenytoin, phenobarbital, or prednisone).

Having the right amount of Calcium Aspartate is important for building and keeping strong bones.
