Innovation in the market of phlebopreparations
To significantly reduce the stagnation of blood in the extremities, to give the walls of the vessels tone and to restore the transcapillary exchange help special preparations.
One of the most effective drugs in this field is the analogue of the Russian Diosmina, Phlebotens Plus, belonging to the pharmaceutical group of angioprotectors( substances normalizing the metabolism in the walls of blood vessels).

As active substances, each pill includes:

The rest of the preparation is made up of auxiliary substances.

Practice of prescribing and using
Reviews of doctors and patients who managed to buy Phlebotenz Plus and try it in practice.
Phlebotens became my salvation. Usually after a long trip or a shopping trip, the legs were like shackles. The same was observed when the weather changed. I even had to quit training in the gym, because it was impossible to perform half the exercises. I did not drink the pills, but used them when there was a need - with symptoms. The relief came within an hour. And soon all has absolutely passed.
During pregnancy, I got swelling on my legs. My legs just tired. My doctor prescribed a diet and appointed Phlebotens.
At first I was surprised - what kind of diet can there be in the situation. However, soon the swelling began to gradually decrease, and after I drank the entire course, I did not recall more about this problem.
Varicose diseases are a real scourge of modern people. As a practicing therapist with 25 years of experience, I can say that the lower age threshold of patients suffering from such diseases has fallen to 25-30 years in recent decades. Most leading experts attribute this fact to a sedentary lifestyle.
In my appointments, I often prescribe Phlebotens Plus as one of the most effective means of toning up blood vessels. I advise it to everyone who knows the problem of heaviness and severe pain in the legs, local bloating, etc.symptoms.
Self-medication is not worth it. First you need to contact your doctor.
As a therapist, I prescribe this drug solely as an adjuvant, combining it with therapeutic gymnastics and other procedures that I focus on.
The drug maximally restores the permeability of the capillaries and normalizes the walls of the vessels. For all the long practice of its use I do not remember a single case when side effects were noted. It should be used strictly according to the instructions and only if prescribed by the doctor, if there are corresponding symptoms.
