How Lipifol-D3 Tablet works

Lipifol-D3 20 Tablet is a combination of five medicines: Atorvastatin, Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxine), Folic Acid, Methylcobalamin/Mecobalamin and Vitamin D3. Atorvastatin is a lipid-lowering medicine which works by blocking an enzyme (HMG-CoA-reductase) that is required to make cholesterol. It thus lowers "bad" cholesterol (LDL), triglycerides and raises "good" cholesterol (HDL). Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxine), Folic Acid, Methylcobalamin/Mecobalamin and Vitamin D3 provide essential nutrients.
