Special warnings and precautions
Calcium rich diet (milk and diary products) is recommended during the treatment
with Phytin. In cases of prolonged administration of the preparation, regular checks
of plasma calcium levels should be performed.
The effect of the drug increases in cases of concurrent administration of calcium
agents. There are no data for interactions with other drugs.
In cases of prolonged administration of high doses, disturbances in calcium equilibrium
can be observed (the phytinic acid forms insoluble salts with calcium and magnesium,
and favors an increase in their elimination out of the body).
Phytin belongs to the group of the organic phosphates and represents a mixture
of calcium and magnesium salts of the phytinic acid. Phytin is a product possessing
general strengthening and tonic action on the organism. It improves the exchange
of substances, stimulates hematopoiesis (formation of the red blood cells by the
bone marrow). It stimulates the activity of the nervous system, particularly in
states associated with phosphorus deficiency in the body. Phytin improves the building
of the bone tissue. Phytin is a natural antioxidant of vegetable origin. The phytinic
acid forms common helate complexes with the iron ions, which inhibit iron catalysed
cellular oxidative processes, and also inhibit lipid peroxidation and the associated
damage of the intestinal and the hepatic cells. The phytinic acid forms insoluble
helate complexes with the calcium ions and binds the existing free radicals, the
base for its antioxidant activity.
