Benefits of Deplatt-CV Capsule

In Prevention of Heart attack

Deplatt-CV 20 Capsule is a combination medicine that is used to prevent heart attack. It contains Atorvastatin that works by reducing the amount of “bad” cholesterol (LDL) and raising the amount of “good” cholesterol (HDL) in your blood. High levels of cholesterol can cause your blood vessels to narrow (atherosclerosis). Lowering the amount of cholesterol reduces the chances of heart diseases and helps you remain healthier for longer.

Besides, it also contains two blood thinners, Aspirin and Clopidogrel, that together prevent the formation of blood clots and also prevent the existing ones from growing blogger in size. Take it regularly and make appropriate lifestyle changes (such as eating healthy and staying active) to maximize the effectiveness of this medicine. Keep taking it even if you feel well.
