Beta-Adalat Capsule contains 2 active ingredients: atenolol (a beta-blocker) and nifedipine (calcium channel blocker). The atenolol works by blocking beta receptors in the heart, which reduces the action of adrenaline and noradrenaline on the heart, causing it to beat more slowly and with less force. This will therefore help to lower blood pressure.
The Nifedipine on the other hand, works by slowing down the movement of calcium through the muscle cells that are found in the walls of blood vessels. As calcium is needed by muscle cells in order for them to contract, a deprivation of calcium will help the muscle cells to relax. As the arteries in the body are relaxed and widened, there will be less pressure in the blood vessels and it will be easier for the heart to pump blood around the body. The widening effect on the arteries will improve blood and oxygen supply to the heart in order to prevent angina attacks.
