How does the drug work ?
Adenosylcobalamin Adenosylcobalamin plays an important role in the cell growth, cell reproduction, hematopoiesis, and myelin synthesis (in the nerves). It works in conjugation with folic acid and enhances the synthesis of DNA. Adenosylcobalamin maintains the functions of bone marrow and enhances the production of red blood cells. It is also required for the metabolism of carbohydrate, fat, and protein. Deficiency of Adenosylcobalamin can decrease the metabolism of folic acid and can lead to folic acid deficiency. Carbonyl Iron Carbonyl iron helps in the synthesis of hemoglobin which is required by the red blood cells to carry oxygen from the lungs to the other body parts and to carry carbondioxide from the body parts to the lungs. It is also involved in the synthesis of myoglobin which stores oxygen in the muscles. Folic acid Folic acid gets converted to tetrahydrofolate in the human body. Tetrahydrofolate helps in the normal production of red blood cells, amino acids, DNA components and other molecules. Zinc Zinc is an essential trace element, which supplies enough zinc required for the normal growth and functioning of the body.
