    Mode of drug action


    Calcium Calcium citrate plays a key role in the body. It is a water soluble calcium supplement. It is the combination of calcium salt with citric acid and malic acid. It has high bioavailability and dissolution. When absorbed by the body it releases calcium ions and calcium citrate complex. Calcium ions are directly absorbed into the intestinal cells, and citrate complex enters through paracellular absorption. Folic acid Folic acid is required for the proper development of the body. It plays a major role in the formation of genetic material - DNA. Folic acid present in the dietary substances is in its inactive form. It is converted to tetrahydrofolic acid and methyltetrahydrofolate in the presence of the enzyme dihydrofolatereductase. Folic acid takes part in erythropoiesis and produces red blood cells. It also plays a role in the synthesis of nucleic acids. Folic acid along with vitamin B12 causes remethylation of homocysteine to methionine and helps to maintain the normal levels of homocysteine. Methylcobalamin 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.
