About Alafin Tablet 10's

Alafin Tablet 10's belongs to the class of 'Vitamins', primarily used to treat nutritional deficiencies. Alafin Tablet 10's effectively treats various conditions caused due to lack of vitamins, such as folate, vitamin B1, B6, and B12 deficiencies. Nutritional deficiency occurs when the body is unable to absorb or get enough nutrients from food.

Alafin Tablet 10's contains Alpha lipoic acid, Folic acid, Pyridoxine, Thiamine, and Methylcobalamin. Alpha-lipoic acid is an antioxidant that prevents cell damage and restores vitamin levels in the body. Folic acid is the synthetic form of folate, a water-soluble Vitamin B naturally found in food sources. It helps in the formation of red blood cells and prevents DNA changes that may lead to cancer. Pyridoxine (vitamin B6) is a water-soluble vitamin that regulates body functions, such as cell multiplication, blood formation, and protein synthesis. Thiamine (vitamin B1) helps generate energy for the body from nutrients and aids in the growth and development of body cells. Methylcobalamin (Mecobalamin), a form of vitamin B12, regulates body functions, such as cell multiplication, blood formation, and protein synthesis. 

Alafin Tablet 10's is available in the form of oral formulations. Your doctor will decide the dosage based on your medical condition. Sometimes, Alafin Tablet 10's may have common side effects like nausea, stomach upset, and rash. These side effects do not require medical attention and gradually resolve over time. 

Let your doctor know if you are using a prescription, non-prescription drugs, and herbal products before starting Alafin Tablet 10's. Please inform your doctor if you are known to be allergic to Alafin Tablet 10's or its inactive components. Vitamins are absorbed readily through oral administration. Please tell your doctor if you have malabsorption syndrome (difficulty absorbing nutrition from food). If you are a pregnant or breastfeeding mother, please consult your doctor before taking Alafin Tablet 10's.

Medicinal Benefits

Alafin Tablet 10's is used to treat nutritional deficiencies. It contains Alpha lipoic acid, Folic acid, Pyridoxine, Thiamine, and Methylcobalamin. Alpha-lipoic acid is an antioxidant that prevents cell damage and restores vitamin levels in the body. It also protects the nerve cells from damaging degradation products and free radicals. Folic acid is the synthetic form of folate, a water-soluble Vitamin B. It helps in the formation of red blood cells and prevents DNA changes that may lead to cancer. Pyridoxine (vitamin B6) is a water-soluble vitamin that treats and prevents vitamin B6 deficiency, anemia, peripheral neuropathy, and seizures (fits). It is involved in protein, fat, and carbohydrate metabolism and the creation of red blood cells and neurotransmitters. Thiamine is vitamin B1 found in yeast, cereal grains, beans, nuts, and meat. It helps generate energy for the body from nutrients and aids in the growth and development of body cells. Methylcobalamin (Mecobalamin) is a coenzyme form of vitamin B12. It regulates body functions, such as cell multiplication, blood formation, and protein synthesis.

FAQs

Alafin Tablet 10's is a vitamin supplement and consists of Alpha-lipoic acid, Folic acid, Pyridoxine, Thiamine, and Methylcobalamin. When you lack these vitamins in your body, which cannot be recovered even with the food sources, Alafin Tablet 10's helps in normalizing these deficient levels. Collectively, Alafin Tablet 10's treats nutritional deficiencies.

Vitamin B6 deficiency occurs when your body lacks adequate Pyridoxine levels. You can overcome this deficiency by including food sources rich in Pyridoxine like milk, eggs, beef, pork, chicken or turkey, fish, peanuts, soya beans, wheat germ, oats, and bananas. If your Vitamin B6 levels are still low, your doctor may prescribe its supplements.

You can include natural Vitamin B12 sources like eggs, beef, liver, chicken, trout, salmon, tuna fish, clams, fortified breakfast cereal, low-fat milk, yogurt, and cheese in your diet for treating the deficiency. If you still have low levels of B12, please consult your doctor for its supplements.
