Pharmachologic effect:

Selectively enhances cerebral blood flow and microcirculation, improves the supply of oxygen to the brain. Providing neuroprotection, cerebral hypoxia enhances portability by activating aerobic glucose utilization and metabolism of epinephrine and serotonin in the brain tissues. It improves oxygen transport to the tissues. Reduces the aggregation of platelets and increased blood viscosity, increases the plasticity of erythrocytes.

Description of the pharmacological actions:

Selectively improves blood flow to the brain, reducing the resistance of the blood vessels spasm, which prevents the "steal" phenomenon (normalizes blood supply to the ischemic region). It improves microcirculation and hemorheological parameters. It enhances glucose disposal brain tissue and supply it with oxygen.
