Active substance: Ginkgo biloba leaf extract.
Description of the pharmacological actions:
Biologically active substances of Ginkgo biloba leaf extract (standardized to a content of 9.6 mg and 2.4 mg ginkgoflavonoglikozidov terpenlaktonov (ginkgolides and bilobalide), 40 mg of extract) help to strengthen and improve the elasticity of the vascular wall, improve the rheological properties of blood and thus improves microcirculation, supply of the brain and peripheral tissues of oxygen and glucose. The drug has cerebroprotective properties. Decreases vascular permeability (decongestant effect – both on the level of the brain and in the periphery). The drug normalizes metabolism in cells, prevents the aggregation of red blood cells, inhibits platelet activating factor. Lets increase blood fibrinolytic activity. It prevents the formation of free radicals and peroxidation of cell membrane lipids. It has a dose-dependent regulating effect on the vascular system, expanding small arteries, increases the tone of veins, regulates blood circulation in blood vessels. The preparation increases the stability of the whole body and particularly brain tissue to hypoxia, traumatic or inhibits the development of toxic cerebral edema.
