About CHERIFOL CAPSULE

CHERIFOL CAPSULE belongs to the class of 'Vitamins,' primarily used to treat nutritional deficiencies. It is used to treat and prevent vitamin B6 deficiency, folate deficiency and vitamin B12 deficiency. CHERIFOL CAPSULE effectively treats various conditions caused due to lack of vitamins, such as anaemia (lack of red blood cells), peripheral neuropathy (nerve disorder), seizures (fits), hyperoxaluria (excess oxalate levels in urine), homocystinuria (accumulation of an amino acid called homocysteine in urine and blood), cyanide poisoning and hyperhomocysteinemia (high levels of homocysteine in the blood). This medicine is also suggested for boosting the memory, thinking ability of infants, helping develop the brain and eye in a child during pregnancy.

CHERIFOL CAPSULE contains three medicines, namely Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), Folic acid and Methylcobalamin. DHA plays an essential role in the development of the brain and is vital during pregnancy and infancy. DHA omega-3 fatty acids (oils) which reduce excess cholesterol levels in the body, thereby keeping the heart, brain and nerves healthy. DHA is usually located in cell membranes where it helps make more cells membrane that make it easier for nerve cells found in the brain to receive and send electric signals. Folic acid is the synthetic form of folate. Folate is a water-soluble vitamin naturally found in food sources. It helps in the formation of red blood cells and prevents DNA changes that may lead to cancer. It prevents and treats low blood levels of folate (folate deficiency) and high blood levels of amino acid, homocysteine (hyperhomocysteinemia). Methylcobalamin, a form of vitamin B12, protects the nerves from damage and promotes blood cell production.

FAQs

Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) is an omega-3 fatty acid. It is a natural part of cells and is an important component of the skin, eyes and brain. It plays an important role in developing the brain during pregnancy and infancy. It is also used in treating high cholesterol levels in the body. It does so by reducing the thickness of the blood and lowering the body's levels of triglycerides.

Usually, every person should take foods that boost the production of folate in their body or the person can take it directly in the form of supplements. However, women, who can become pregnant should focus more on their intake. If a woman who can be pregnant has enough folic acid in her body before her pregnancy then it can help to avoid the risk of major birth defects of her baby's brain and spine.

DHA is good for health and a person should consume it from either food and supplements or in both as the body cannot produce the required DHA (2 grams) by the body. It also helps to prevent or treat health diseases and high cholesterol levels in the body.

CHERIFOL CAPSULE is possibly safe when used in patients with thyroid problems. However, make sure to inform your doctor before taking this medicine as CHERIFOL CAPSULE may interact with levothyroxine used to treat hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid).

CHERIFOL CAPSULE can be safely used in patients with diabetes unless you have other problems such as kidney diseases or bone-related problems. So, it is recommended to inform your doctor before taking CHERIFOL CAPSULE to avoid any risks.
