Heparinoid is a mixture of sulphated glycosaminoglycans prepared from a starting material extracted from pig intestines.
Heparinoid has anti-inflammatory, anti-exudative and anticoagulant effects. It reduces the increased coagulability of blood in the inflammation or wound in the case of injury, prevents the formation of blood clots, accelerates resorption in the case of haematomas, reduces the formation of oedema and has an anti-inflammatory effect, consequently reducing the sensation of tension and pain at the inflammation or wound site.
