What is Pravastatin?

Pravastatin is a medical treatment aimed at reducing the LDL cholesterol level in a patient. If this is not taken, the person in question will be in danger of acquiring and developing serious conditions and ailments like heart attack and stroke because of high cholesterol count. Lipostat is the brand name and Pravastatin is the active ingredient.

This is the reason why it is important for patients to take this drug. Pravastatin is taken on a daily basis to ensure lowering of the cholesterol levels.

How does Pravastatin work?

Pravastatin’s main objective is to lower the levels of LDL cholesterol. It does this by suppressing the production of bad cholesterol by the enzyme responsible for it. HMG-CoA reductase is the enzyme the produces bad cholesterol. There are two types of cholesterol, the good and the bad. The good is called High-Density-Lipoprotein or HDL while the bad is called Low-Density-Lipoprotein or LDL. HDL insulates and conditions the blood vessels for a smooth flow of blood and also transports signals from one part to another. The LDL on the other hand builds up in the bloodstreams forming blockages which could led to worse problems in the future. A diagnosis of high cholesterol levels normally means the level of LDL is at a dangerous point.
