Ezetrol Tablets 10mg
Ezetrol Tablets 10mg are used globally to lower increased levels of cholesterol preventing health risks associated with the heart, such as coronary heart disease (CHD), heart attacks and angina. When a low-fat diet does not adequately lower cholesterol levels, Ezetrol (alone or in combination with other medications) provides additional help for reducing cholesterol. High-cholesterol is often caused by a high-fat diet and lack of exercise, or is inherited.
The body needs cholesterol for functions such as building cell membranes, producing certain hormones and transporting fat-soluble vitamins around the body. When the body has too much cholesterol, unused cholesterol is deposited in the artery walls where it can build up.
This can lead to the blocking of arteries and consequently heart disease.
Ezetrols main ingredient, ezetimibe, acts directly on the small intestine to inhibit the intestinal absorption of cholesterol and related plant sterols. The result is less cholesterol storage in the liver, which helps lower blood cholesterol.
