Fotia Plus Tablet is a unique combination of Benfothiamine with Methylcobalamin, Folic acid Pyridoxine and Alpha Lipoic Acid. This medication is a vitamin prescribed to treat or prevent beri-beri, wenicke-korsakoff syndrome, diabetic neuropathy. It is an essential nutrient for development of the nervous system. Treatment with benfotiamine leads to increased intracellular thiamine diphosphate levels,a cofactor of transketolase. This enzyme directs advanced glycation and lipoxidation end products (AGE's, ALE's) substrates to the pentose phosphate pathway, thus reducing tissue AGEs. Methylcobalamin normalizes protein transport in the cells of diabetic patient. It exhibits inhibitory effects on nerve degeneration in people with neuropathies.Methylcobalamin accelerates the metabolic pathways of nucleic acids, proteins and lipids through its involvement in the transmethylation reaction; thus, it exerts a repairing effect on injured nerve tissues. Alpha-lipoic acid or ALA is a naturally occurring compound that's made in the body. It serves vital functions at the cellular level, such as energy production. Alpha-lipoic acid helps to prevent certain kinds of cell damage in the body, and also restores vitamin levels such as vitamin E and vitamin C. Alpha-lipoic acid breaks down carbohydrates and to make energy for the other organs in the body. Alpha-lipoic acid works as an antioxidant, which means that it might provide protection to the brain under conditions of damage or injury.
The trio of Methylcobalamin, Folic acid and Pyridoxine helps in bringing down the level of homocysteine in blood, the major factor for atherosclerosis. Thus, Folita Plus reduces the major risk factors for atherosclerosis and neuropathies.
