    Mode of drug action


    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. 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 dihydrofolate reductase. 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. Niacinamide Niacin and niacinamide are the components of vitamin B3. They are usually indicated for prevention and treatment of vitamin B3 deficiency diseases. Niacin is the precursor to nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD) and nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate (NADP), which are the cofactors for various enzymes. Niacin is converted into niacinamide in the body. Niacinamide reduces LDL cholesterol, triglycerides, and HDL cholesterol levels. It reduces the risk of coronary diseases in the patients. Lactobacillus Lactobacillus maintains the required balance of other microflora in the intestine, thereby, improving the patient’s condition.
