Some of the ingredients are different.

Shelcal contains Calcium Carbonate and Vitamin D3.


Gemcal contains:calcitriol 0.25 mcg, calcium carbonate 500 mg amd zinc 7.5 mg.


So it is what they provide and their formulations, it depends on what your body needs and what your doctor recommends that you use.

Which has your doctor recommended?
