Pharmacological action:
Vitamin B1 combines with ATP (Adenosine triphosphate) to form thiamine pyrophosphate, also known as co–carboxylase, a co-enzyme, which catalyzes the decarboxylation of pyruvic acid and other keto acids.
Vitamin B6 acts as a co-enzyme in the metabolism of proteins, carbohydrates and fats. It participates in the decarboxylation and transamination of amino acids and is responsible for the breakdown of glycogen to glucose -1-phosphate.
Vitamin B12 is essential for growth, cell reproduction, hematopoiesis and synthesis of nucleoprotein and myelin.
Folic acid is required for nucleoprotein synthesis and maintenance of normal erythropoiesis. Folic acid stimulates the production of red and white blood cells as well as platelets.

Trivarol tablets are indicated in painful neuritis, inborn errors of metabolism, inadequate dietary intake, pernicious anemia, hemolytic anemia and cases of increased vitamin requirement such as pregnancy and in treatment of megaloblastic anemia.
