Becosules are a multivitamin formulation by Pfizer that comprise Vitamin B complex, Vitamin C and Calcium pantothenate. Becosules capsules are easily available and are used to treat symptoms like diarrhoea, acne, gastrointestinal disorders, and mouth ulcers. These capsules are also useful for those on reduced diets. While you can obtain these over the counter without a doctor’s prescription, over dosage of Becosules can lead to side effects, and it is best to consult a doctor before you take them.

Alongside the regular Becosules strip, you’ll find variants such as Becosules Z and Becosules syrup at pharmacies. To know the significance of these and the top uses and benefits of Becosules, read on.

However, here the advantage is in the additional amount of Zinc. Zinc is an essential mineral and important for immunity, protein and DNA synthesis, healing of wounds, growth of the body and enzymatic functions. It also helps the WBCs respond to infection and can help you keep colds at bay.
