Valsartan is a angiotensin II receptor blocker to angiotensin I, which is mainly found in tissues such as smooth muscles and adrenal glands. Angiotension exerts vasoconstriction and aldosterone effects and this inhibition results in dilation of blood vessels that reduces blood pressure. This combination drug helps patients to reduce the elevated level of blood pressure effectively.
