    Mode of drug action


    Calcium carbonate Calcium carbonate supplements provide calcium required for the body. It also prevents absorption of phosphate from the gastrointestinal tract in people with kidney disease. Vitamin D3 Vitamin D3 is a steroid hormone which binds to the vitamin D receptors and helps in the absorption of calcium. 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 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 vitamin B12 can decrease the metabolism of folic acid and can lead to folic acid deficiency. 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.
