Hirudoid contains MPS (mucopolysaccharides) which is similar to the body's naturally occurring MPS found in the dermis layer of skin.
MPS accelerates healing in the following ways:
• Improves blood flow to the area
• Promotes tissue regeneration by increasing collagen and elastin fibres in the connective tissue matrix
• Improves moisturising capacity of the skin by increasing the hyaluronic acid content
• Accelerates the absorption of bruises
• Reduces swelling and inflammation
This results in healing benefits for not only bruises but scars, sprains and various inflammatory conditions of the veins.
The MPS in Hirudoid is able to attract water and therefore loosen the connective tissue, preventing a dense accumulation of the fibres, which create a thick scar. Several studies have shown that Hirudoid softens scars, increases flexibility of the scar tissue, reduces redness and results in a better cosmetic appearance.
The pain of sprains and other minor injuries is a common problem and frequently causes absence from work. Hirudoid increases the blood flow by dilating the peripheral blood vessels. This promotes speedier absorption of fluid from the tissues. In one study, 83% of patients who used Hirudoid were fully mobile within one week.
Doctors know about the powerful anti-inflammatory effect of Hirudoid and recommend it for various inflammatory conditions of the veins. Symptoms are tired, painful legs with swelling and inflamed veins. Many studies have shown that the MPS in Hirudoid reduces the inflammation. Hirudoid can be used for various inflammatory conditions of the veins under medical supervision.
