Tri-vitacid combines three factors of vitamin B complex: B1 , B6 and B12 which are essential for performance of normal metabolism and for proper functioning of the living cells.
Vitamin B1 (thiamine) forms the coenzyme cocarboxylase which has an important role in carbohydrate metabolism. It catalyses the decarboxylation of pyruvic acid and other ketoacids.
Vitamin B6 (pyridoxine) acts as a coenzyme in protein, fat and carbohydrate metabolism as well as haemoglobin synthesis. It has an important role in decarboxylation, deamination, transamination and transufuration of amino acids.
Vitamin B12 (Cyanocobalamine) is essential to growth, cell reproduction, hematopoiesis, and nucleoprotein and myelin synthesis so its deficiency results in neurologic damage. In addition, Vitamin B12 is associated with fat and carbohydrate metabolism and protein synthesis and has the main role in folic acid activation.
In addition, Tri-vitacid tablets contain folic acid which is required for nucleoprotein synthesis and maintainance of normal erythropoiesis. It stimulates specifically the production of RBCs, WBCs, and platelets in persons suffering from certain megaloblastic anemia.
