Buckeye with Spongilla Gel is a wonderful gel formula which combines buckeye and spongilla extracts , is also enriched with arnica extract , juniper and cedar oil . This gel is applied for rubbing as venotonic and antithrombotic medicine in case of stagnation and leg varicose veins dilatation, in case of thrombophlebitis because it activates blood supply, tones up blood vessels which improves blood microcirculation as well as in cases of rheumatic and arthritic pains, podagra and sciatica, neuralgia and radiculitis. We recommend to use Buckeye with Spongilla Gel as analgetic in cases of injuries, bruises, haematomas. It provides anti-inflammatory and resolving actions. Buckeye extract improves resistance of capillary walls and red blood cells, venous vessel tone, increases blood flow in the veins. It contains catechins, flavonoids (rutin, quercetin, pectines and tannins) and other organic compounds. Extract action is connected with the presence of the flavonol glycoside esculin and saponin escin in it. Esculin reduces capillary permeability, stimulates antithrombotic activity of blood serum, increases antithrombin production in the vessel system, intensifies vein blood filling especially if there are pathological changes in the veins. Escin is triterpenic glycoside which has evident capillary protective activity and has anti-inflammatory action. Escin lowers blood viscosity. These properties are used for acceleration of tissue function recovery (edema reduction, sense of pain) after injuries (separately – sport injuries), operations, in cases of phlebitis, varicose veins dilatation and in cases of some other pathological states. Spongilla lacustris is the representative of the Spongia type and belongs to the sponge silicon group (Cornacuspongia, Spongillidae Family).Traditionally it was used as a ground Spongia powder, silica which has needles which penetrate in the upper layer of epidermis causing local irritation of the cutaneous covering, hypodermic capillary and blood vessels expansion, which occur deeper. It facilitates the activization of the superficial blood supply, relieving of local pain, it provides dispersion on the affected areas. While using spongilla biologically active substances (such as autakoids, kenins, histamines, prostaglandins) are locally released. These substances facilitate healing of the injured tissues, scars and indurations resorption, they also renew local immunity and protective skin functions. Arnica extract helps in cases of injuries, bruises improving local blood circulation. Oil is made from the needles of juniper which has disinfecting, phytonsidic, anti-inflammatory, analgetic actions, facilitates gereneration. Juniper oil has high antimicrobial activity. Cedar oil has favourable effect on the skin, that’s why it is suitable for delicate, sensitive skin care even in cases of inclination to irritation and reddenings, it eliminates unpleasant skin smell, improves its state. Cedar oil molecules have high bactericidal activity concerning microorganisms, viruses, fungi.
