How Lifepill 4 Kit works

Lifepill 4 Kit is a combination of four medicines: atorvastatin, aspirin, ramipril and metoprolol which prevent heart attack and lower blood pressure. Atorvastatin is a lipid-lowering medication that blocks an enzyme required in the body to make cholesterol. It lowers the “bad” cholesterol (LDL), triglycerides and raises the “good” cholesterol (HDL). Aspirin is an antiplatelet medication. It prevents the platelets from sticking together and decreases the formation of harmful blood clots. Ramipril and Metoprolol are blood pressure lowering medicines which works by relaxing the blood vessels, so that blood flows more smoothly and the heart can pump blood more efficiently.
