Duovit tablets Pharmacotherapeutic group
Multivitamins with trace elements. ATX code A11A A04.

Duovit®, film-coated tablets containing vitamins and minerals. Vitamins and minerals are closely related in their functional activity and exhibit an additive effect. Some vitamins and minerals cannot coexist, which is why they are separated in red (vitamins) and blue (minerals) Duovit® tablets.

B vitamins (B1, B2, B6, pantothenic acid and nicotinamide) are involved in the metabolism of carbohydrates, proteins and fats, and they are also involved in the functioning of the nervous system. Vitamin B12 is involved in erythropoiesis, contributes to the normal functioning of the nervous system. Vitamin A is essential for the development of epithelial cells and for the synthesis of visual pigment. Vitamin D3 regulates calcium absorption and promotes proper mineralization of bones and teeth. Vitamin C controls the absorption of iron and is involved in redox processes in the body. Vitamin E, a physiological antioxidant, protects cell membranes from damage and maintains their functionality.

Minerals and oligoelements are very important for the body. They are constituents of tissues or activators and constituents of enzymes and hormones. Calcium and phosphorus play an important role in the mineralization of bones and teeth. Calcium ions activate many enzymes involved in the regulation of the tone of the heart muscle, in the transmission of nerve impulses and regulate the permeability of cell membranes. Iron and copper, along with B vitamins, are important for the formation of red blood cells. Magnesium, manganese, zinc and molybdenum play the role of enzyme constituents in many reactions that are important for the body.

There is no available pharmacokinetic data for Duovit® tablets. However, in the scientific literature there is information about the absorption, distribution and excretion of certain vitamins and minerals.

Water-soluble vitamins (B vitamins, vitamin C) are absorbed within the daily requirement. Amounts exceeding tissue absorption are excreted in the urine, in some cases also in the faeces. These vitamins are found in very small amounts in the body, therefore, their proper level in the body must be maintained.

After oral administration, fat-soluble vitamins A and D3 are absorbed in the small intestine in the presence of fats. The absorption of vitamin E is relatively low (25% to 85% of the dose). These vitamins are stored in large quantities in the liver and therefore are also toxic than water-soluble vitamins.
