How Does Co-Telsan 80mg+12.5mg Tablet 7.0 ‘S Work

Two things that increase blood pressure levels from the normal (120/80mmHg) range are increased amounts of fluid in the body that leads to a higher than normal amount of blood flowing through vessels that aren’t built to withstand such high amounts of fluid on a daily basis.Excessive fluid together with narrowed blood vessels (decrease in diameter) cause Hypertension. Co-Telsan 80mg+12.5mg Tablet 7.0 ‘S works by preventing both the unnecessary retention of fluid in the body and the narrowing of blood vessels and therefore,allowing normal amounts of blood flow and easy access of blood to the various organs and easing the flow of blood within the vessel itself.

Co-Telsan 80mg+12.5mg Tablet 7.0 ‘S is able to bring about the desired effect by the perfect and unique combination of two chemical groups known as Angiotensin II Receptor Blockers (prevent decrease in blood vessel diameter by blocking angiotensin,a natural hormone found in the human body that works by narrowing blood vessels) and Diuretics (prevent fluid retention in the body by allowing excessive  fluid to be lost via urine).
