Adcock Ingram Acei-Gap 30 Capsules
Each capsule contains:Vitamin D3 - 800 IU.Zinc - 15mg.www.adcock.com.Scheduling status:Not scheduled.Proprietary name and dosage form:Acei-Gap (capsule).List of excipients: colloidal anhydrous silica, magnesium stearate, microcrystalline cellulose.Pharmacological classification:D 22.2 vitamins, others.Pharmacological action:The Renin Angiotensin System (RAS) is a regulatory cascade that plays an essential role in the regulation of blood pressure, electrolyte and volume homeostasis. Inappropriate stimulation of the RAS has been associated with hypertension. Vitamin D is a potent endocrine suppressor of renin biosynthesis to regulate RAS. It is speculated that the pandemic of vitamin D deficiency might be related to, or induced by, the overstimulation of the renin angiotensin system, as seen in hypertension, heart attack, stroke and hypertrophy of the left ventricle and vascular smooth muscle cells. Vitamin D deficiency was identified as a potential marker for risk of stroke and cardiovascular disease.ACE inhibitors (ACEIs) are used in the management of hypertension, congestive heart failure, myocardial infarction and left ventricular systolic dysfunction. Captopril and enalapril are ACEIs producing their action by having a prominent zinc binding moiety which binds to zinc in the active site of the angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE). It should be noted that diseases such as diabetes and hypertension might also enhance zinc deficiency. The deficiency in zinc caused by ACEIs has recently been confirmed.Indications:Acei-gap capsules assist in the maintenance of the essential nutrients that may be depleted as a result of high blood pressure and the treatment thereof.Identification:Acei-gap are red and white hard gelatin capsules.Presentation:Acei-gap capsules are packed in PVC/PVDC/aluminium blister packs of 30 capsules.
