Product Mechanism of Action
Meldonium Olainfarm contains meldonium dehydrate (further in the text referred to as meldonium), which is a structural analogue of gamma-butyrobetaine, substance found in the body cells.
Meldonium positively affects energetic metabolism of the organism and moderately activates the central nervous system.
Under the conditions of ischemia (oxygen deficiency in tissues), Meldonium Olainfarm restores energetic balance between oxygen delivery and its consumption in cells, activating those metabolism processes that need less oxygen for energy creation. Meldonium dilates the blood vessels improving blood supply to the body tissues. Meldonium Olainfarm also exerts cardioprotective effect (heart protection) under the conditions of ischemia and oxygen deficiency. Meldonium decreases the frequency of angina pectoris attacks (chest pain) and increases physical activity In case of heart failure the medicine improves myocardial (the heart muscle) contractility and increases tolerance of the organism to physical overload.
In cases of acute and chronic ischemic cerebrovascular disorders Meldonium Olainfarm optimizes cerebral blood flow redistribution in favour of ischemic areas.
Meldonium Olainfarm possesses CNS (central nervous system) stimulant activity. As a result the medicine improves memory, ability to concentrate and movement coordination.
