    Mode of drug action

    Benfotiamine Benfotiamine acts by combining with an energy molecule called adenosine triphosphate (ATP). This forms a coenzyme required for the metabolism of carbohydrates, thus, producing necessary products for the body. Alpha-lipoic acid Alpha-lipoic acid prevents cell damage and restores vitamin levels such as vitamin E, and vitamin C. It also improves the conduction and functioning of neurons in diabetes. Methylcobalamin Methylcobalamin 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. Methylcobalamin 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 Methylcobalamin can decrease the metabolism of folic acid and can lead to folic acid deficiency. Inositol Inositol maintains neurohormonal balance and reduces the symptoms of neurological disorders. Vitamin D3 Vitamin D3 regulates calcium and phosphorus absorption, bone mineralization, and vitamin A assimilation. In the body, vitamin D3 is converted into its active form calcitriol. Calcitriol acts by increasing the absorption of calcium and phosphorus, bone resorption, and renal tubular reabsorption of calcium. It also promotes intestinal absorption of calcium. Thus, calcitriol increases the levels of serum calcium. 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. Iron supplements also may benefit people with depression, fatigue, and Crohn’s disease (of the intestine). Biotin Biotin is a water soluble vitamin. It is also known as vitamin B7 or vitamin H. Biotin is a cofactor plays a role in several enzymatic reactions such as carboxylation, formation of acetyl co A etc. Biotin plays an important role in the catalysis of metabolic reactions such as biosynthesis of fatty acids. It decreases the serum triglycerides and vLDL and reduces the risk of heart attack. Biotin also plays a role in the gluconeogenesis. It converts the fat and other complex sugar molecules into glucose and produces energy. It plays a role in the amino acid catabolism and enhances the formation of protein. Biotin along with folic acid enhances the fetus growth in the uterus. Biotin improves growth of hair and nails. Biotin is safe to take during pregnancy as it improves fetal growth.
