Ethoxidol is a combination drug that inhibits free radical processes and has antioxidant, membrane-protective, anti-hypoxic, nootropic, anticonvulsant, anxiolytic, and stress-protective effects. It contains ethyl methyl hydroxypyridine malate, which is a compound that is very closely related to another drug Mexidol. Ethoxidol was shown to be more effective than Mexidol in cardiac antiarrhythmic effects, while other effects were very similar.

Apart from that, it should be noted that Ethoxidol contains other active ingredients such as dimethylethanolamine (DMAE), N-Acetyl-DL-glutamic acid, and glycine.

Buy Ethoxidol for usage in anti-ischemic therapy as it stimulates blood flow in the penumbra. It also reduces total cholesterol and low-density lipoproteins.

The drug increases resistance towards various damaging factors, as well as pathological conditions such as shock, hypoxia, ischemia, cerebrovascular accidents, and intoxication with alcohol and antipsychotics (neuroleptics).

Ethoxidol improves brain metabolism, brain blood supply, microcirculation, and blood’s rheological properties and reduces platelet aggregation. It stabilizes membrane structures of erythrocytes and platelets that are involved in hemolysis.

Pharmacodynamic properties

Ethoxidol’s effect is driven by its antioxidant, anti-hypoxic, and membrane-protective properties. It inhibits lipid peroxidation, increases the lipid-protein ratio, stabilizes the membrane fluidity, and stimulates the membrane-bound enzymes and receptors.

Pharmacokinetic properties

After ingestion, the drug is absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract and gets distributed to the organs and tissues of the body. It stays in the blood plasma for 7–10 hours. Then Ethoxidol is extensively metabolized in the liver.

Dosage and administration

Cytomaxes® are natural peptides extracted from organs and tissues of young calves by a patented method of thorough filtering. They have a low molecular weight of less than 5 kDa which does not allow for foreign DNA fragments and infectious particles to get into the preparation. Therefore these supplements are very safe for use. Cytomaxes are designed to optimize the functions of the body and regulate the processes of protein biosynthesis.

Cytogens® are synthesized short peptides of 2-3 amino acids. Cytogens have a faster action compared to extracted peptides Cytomaxes. By reducing peptide deficiency in organs and restoring protein synthesis, Cytogens regulate work and functionality of organs and slow down the ageing process. These peptides can be easily combined with other supplements and medicines and can be used in addition to conventional medical treatment.
