About Biotor Gold 20/75/75Mg Capsule

Biotor Gold 20/75/75Mg Capsule belongs to a class of medication called 'cardiovascular drugs' used to prevent heart attack and stroke. It also lowers bad cholesterol and triglyceride (TG) levels. Heart attack refers to blocked blood flow to the heart due to blockage of arteries. The blockage is mostly a build-up of cholesterol, fat, and other substances that form a plaque in the arteries which feed the heart (coronary arteries). A stroke occurs due to blocked blood flow to the brain.

Biotor Gold 20/75/75Mg Capsule is a combination of two blood thinners (Acetylsalicylic acid, Clopidogrel) and one lipid-lowering agent (Atorvastatin). Acetylsalicylic acid and Clopidogrel work by inhibiting platelets (blood cells) from sticking together. Thereby, it prevents the formation of blood clots. Atorvastatin belongs to the class of lipid-lowering medicines called statins that works by inhibiting the HMG-CoA reductase enzyme in the body that is essential to make cholesterol, thereby decreasing the production of LDL (bad cholesterol) by the liver. Thus, it reduces the risk of stroke or heart attack by reducing the brain's excess cholesterol deposition and the heart's major blood vessels.
