The basis of "Spongilla With The Medicinal Leech Extract" Gel is a combination of spongilla , leech , the extracts of buckeye and sea buckthorn. Gentle gel is specially designed to strengthen the walls of the blood vessels, relieve pain and heaviness in the legs. It facilitates the elimination of bruises, pigment and stagnant spots.
The gel has preventive effect against varicose veins dilatation and capillary network appearance. Gel relieves fatigue and heaviness in the legs, has analgesic, anti-inflammatory, resolving actions and reduces edema. It helps to strengthen the blood vessels, improve the elasticity of the walls of capillaries, it improves blood microcirculation. This is due to the properties of the components of the gel.
The medicinal leech extract prevents the growth of intravascular blood clots, stimulates their resolution and reduces blood viscosity. It contains hirudin , destabilase complex , bdelins, eglins, hyaluronidase , antibacterial and analgesic substances.
Destabilase is an enzyme that carries out the fibrinolytic activity.
Hirudin is the most specific in nature thrombin inhibitor which slows the reaction of blood clotting factors activated by thrombin.
Hyaluronidase is an enzyme which destroys the main substance of scar connective tissue.
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.
Buckeye extract increases venous vessel tone. It contains catechins, flavonoids (rutin, quercetin) and other organic compounds. Buckeye 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.
Sea buckthorn contains over a hundred substances which are necessary for human body- vitamins and microelements. It contains unsaturated fatty acids, organic acids, tannins, coumarins, flavonoids, essential oils and a significant amount of pigment and carotene, vitamins C, B1, B2, B6, P, nicotinic and folic acids, carotene, microelements (kalium, calcium, etc). Sea buckthorn has nourishing, anti-inflammatory, regenerative, bio-stimulating effects. In case of its use it softens the skin, increases its elasticity.
