Atorvastatin acts on an enzyme responsible for the production of cholesterol in the blood. Thus, the level of cholesterol produced in the blood gets reduced over time. Cholecalciferol (vitamin-D3), acts by promoting the absorption of calcium, phosphates and Vitamin A from different organs and helps in maintaining overall health.
