Many decades ago shepherds in Switzerland noticed that young calves are able to heal their injuries and regenerate their tissue much faster than older calves. However, it was only in 1957, when Swiss scientists obtained a highly purified extract from the blood of young calves and developed the drug which is now, after countless improvements, called Actovegin.

Actovegin enhances aerobic oxidation, absorption of glucose, and oxygen uptake in tissue. For this reason, Actovegin has been used by athletes who wanted to speed up the recovery process and enhance physical performance and stamina. It is also a great drug to treat various sport injuries. Similar to Bemitil

From a medical viewpoint, you can buy Actovegin for the following treatment applications:

  • Malfunction of the blood circulation and trophic disturbances in the brain;
  • Impairment of peripheral blood circulation and associated diseases;
  • Dermal transplants and acute and chronic wounds.

 

The drug is a combination of various physiologically active ingredients:

  • Amino acids, e.g. ornithine, leucine, alanine, glutamate, proline, glycine, taurine, etc;
  • Oligopeptides;
  • Lipids;
  • Oligosaccharides;
  • Nucleosides, e.g. adenosine, uridine;
  • Antioxidants;
  • Electrolytes, e.g. Na, Cl, K, Mg, Ca, F, Fe;
  • Microelements, e.g. Cu, Si, Se, Zn.

 

The organic compounds account for 30% of the extract. There is also an ointment with the same active ingredient – Solcoseryl.
As a starting material, the blood of young calves less than 3 months is used. The extract is obtained by the ultrafiltration method, which ensures that there is no prion.

As of 2015, Actovegin has been approved in 17 countries including Russia, China, South Korea, Latvia, and some others.

Produced by Takeda, Austria/Russia. Read more about the producer in this blog post.
