    Mode of drug action


    Chromium Chromium is an essential trace nutrient that induces insulin action thus influencing carbohydrate, lipid and protein metabolism. Selenium Selenium plays a role in the metabolism of carbohydrates, fats, and proteins. It has antioxidant activity and prevents the cell damage. It reduces the risk of cancer and cardiovascular diseases. 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). Nicotinamide Nicotinamide acts as a substitute for the vitamin B3 deficiency in the human body. Pyridoxine Pyridoxine is also known as vitamin B6. It consists of pyridoxine, pyridoxal, pyridoxamine, and their phosphorylated derivatives. These compounds are closely related and are collectively called as vitamin B6. Vitamin B6 acts as a coenzyme in various biochemical reactions such as metabolism of amino acids, glycogen, and synthesis of nucleic acids, hemoglobin, sphingomyelin, and sphingolipids. It also takes part in the synthesis of neurotransmitters such as serotonin, dopamine, norepinephrine and gamma-aminobutyric acid. Vitamin B12 Vitamin B12 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. Vitamin B12 maintains the function 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 vitamin B12 can decrease the metabolism of folic acid and can lead to folic acid deficiency. Zinc Zinc available in this drug supplies enough zinc required for the normal growth and functioning of the body. 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. It converts the fat and other complex sugar molecules into glucose and produces energy. It initiates 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. Beta-carotene Beta-carotene is a precursor of vitamin A. It is used for the treatment of vitamin A deficiency disorders. It has photo protective action so it used to prevent cell damage caused due to harmful sun rays. It also has antioxidant activity and reduces oxidative stress. It improves the retinal functions and reduces risk of cancer. It plays a role in the formation of epithelia tissue and maintains skin integrity. Copper Copper is an essential trace mineral which plays an important role in the formation of red blood cells. It enhances the absorption of iron and stores the iron in the body. It has anti-inflammatory action and reduces the symptoms of arthritis. It is essential for proper growth and functioning of the body. It plays a role in the production of melanin and prevents the greying of hair. It protects the myelin sheath that surrounds the nerves and prevents nerve damage. It acts as a cofactor in various enzymes. It plays a role in the synthesis of ATP- the energy molecules. It enhances the seep of wound healing and helps in tissue repair. Manganese Manganese plays an important role in the development and metabolism of various antioxidant activities. It reduces the free radicals. It acts as a cofactor in various enzymatic reactions. It plays a role in the metabolism of cholesterol, carbohydrates and protein. It is also involved in the formation of bone. Molybdenum Molybdenum is a trace mineral which helps to breakdown proteins, carbohydrates and other macronutrients. It acts a cofactor in various enzymatic reactions. It combines with sulfite oxidase and catalyzes the sulfur-containing amino acids. 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. Boron Boron helps to handle other minerals such as magnesium and phosphorus. It also increases estrogen levels in women and men. It helps to maintain healthy bones and mental condition. Phosphorous Phosphorous is taken externally together with calcium to maintain the bone health. Phosphorous is absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract to maintain the normal level of phosphorous in the body. Choline bitartrate Choline bitartrate is a natural ingredient and is a direct precursor for Acetylcholine, which acts by altering certain chemical reactions in the body. Vanadium Vanadium works by mimicking or increasing the activity of insulin in the body.
