Zetia
Product Ingridients:

Therapeutic actions:

Zetia contains the active ingredient Ezetimibe which belongs to a group of medicines called cholesterol absorption inhibitors. Zetia works by selectively inhibiting absorption of cholesterol and some other stirol in the intestine. Ezetimibe is localized in the brush border of the small intestine and prevents the absorption of cholesterol. This lowers the amount of cholesterol in the liver and thus decreases its elimination out of the blood. Zetia reduces the amount of total cholesterol in the organism including low density lipoproteins and triglycerides.
