What is Xtraglo?

Xtraglo is a form of vitamin B found in foods. Xtraglo helps the body break down fats, carbohydrates, and other substances.

Xtraglo has been used in alternative medicine as a likely effective aid in treating or preventing Xtraglo deficiency. Xtraglo deficiency can be caused by malnutrition, rapid weight loss, long-term tube feeding, and other medical conditions.

Xtraglo has also been used to treat seborrhea (skin rash) in babies. However, research has shown that Xtraglo may not be effective in treating this condition.

Other uses not proven with research have included treating brittle nails or thinning hair, diabetes, nerve pain, and other conditions.

It is not certain whether Xtraglo is effective in treating any medical condition. Medicinal use of this product has not been approved by the FDA. Xtraglo should not be used in place of medication prescribed for you by your doctor.

Xtraglo is often sold as an herbal supplement. There are no regulated manufacturing standards in place for many herbal compounds and some marketed supplements have been found to be contaminated with toxic metals or other drugs. Herbal/health supplements should be purchased from a reliable source to minimize the risk of contamination.

Xtraglo may also be used for purposes not listed in this product guide.

Xtraglo indications

An indication is a term used for the list of condition or symptom or illness for which the medicine is prescribed or used by the patient. For example, acetaminophen or paracetamol is used for fever by the patient, or the doctor prescribes it for a headache or body pains. Now fever, headache and body pains are the indications of paracetamol. A patient should be aware of the indications of medications used for common conditions because they can be taken over the counter in the pharmacy meaning without prescription by the Physician.

Xtraglo description

A dibenzoxepin tricyclic compound. It displays a range of pharmacological actions including maintaining adrenergic innervation.

The anticonvulsants carbamazepine, phenytoin, Phenobarbital, and primidone may accelerate Xtraglo metabolism, leading to a reduction in available Xtraglo. Chronic use of these drugs has been associated with decreased plasma concentrations of Xtraglo.

The use of antibiotics may reduce the contribution of Xtraglo made by bacteria within the large intestine.
