Mechanism of Action of Drugs

Mechanism of Action of Drugs

Cobalife capsule contains essential supplements that work together to help build a stronger immune system and development of nervous system. Alpha lipoic acid provides an antioxidant effect to protect peripheral nerves and enhances the function and conduction of neurons in diabetes. Benfotiamine gets converted to thiamine when taken by mouth and treats thiamine deficiency and helps to reduce oxidate stress on neurons thereby preventing death of neurons. Inositol balances certain chemicals in the body and makes insulin work better, thereby helping in nerve problems caused by diabetes, panic disorder, depression, polycystic ovary syndrome. Lycopene has antioxidant properties that helps in maintaining heart healthy and also help the physical body respond better against invading infections by neutralizing the damage caused by harmful chemicals called free radicals. Folic acid and methyl cobalamin help in lowering elevated homocysteine levels and also plays a key role in helping the body make red blood cells, thus helps in treating anaemias. Pyridoxine (B6) aids in improvement of metabolism, burning of more calories, enhancement of immunity and supports nervous system activity. Anaemia and peripheral neuropathy may result from lack of pyridoxine. Vitamin B6 must be acquired from diet since humans cannot produce it.
