Description of the action "Cavinton"
"Cavinton" significantly improves the flow of free oxygen molecules in the cells of the nervous tissue and increases the absorption of glucose. This is a very positive effect on tissue regeneration and the growth of their energy potential – neurons using the drug becomes more secure and much better survive in partial or total oxygen deficiency in the affected parts of the brain.
Doctors often prescribe a "Cavinton" as adequate preventive measures with the threat of development of such severe diseases, like Alzheimer's.
Regular use of "reverse" causes increased permeability hemolytic encephalitic barrier for molecules of oxygen and glucose. Thanks to the Vinpocetine, glucose molecules break up into easily digestible forms without oxygen, and oxidants that cause premature aging of brain tissue, does not accumulate in them. In addition, "Cavinton" concentrates the content of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) in the structures of the cells and restores lost brain function by increasing mitosis, which occurs with increase of the cell potential on the background of reducing the activity of calcium channels. Also, the drug promotes release of the brain a large number of hormones that suppress the stress and depression that allows the patient to recover faster.
Most often, "reverse" is used in the form of intravenous infusion solution at the initial stage of disorders of cerebral circulation.

As a result, doctors can prevent such negative consequences of stroke, like paralysis, disorders of speech, vision loss and so on.
Children and adolescents "Cavinton" can assign in the presence of different forms of reduced brain activity.
Furthermore, the drug successfully used for the neurological manifestations of ischemic lesions of brain, recovery after hemorrhagic stroke, all forms of dementia caused by vascular disorders, vertebrobasilar weak functioning of the device, the internal of atherosclerotic lesions of blood vessels, as well as post-traumatic, hypertensive and diabetic encephalopathy. "Cavinton" is well established in the treatment of diseases of the inner ear and ocular blood vessels caused by blood disorder.
