Meldonium is a structural analogue of the precursor of carnitine - gamma-butyrobetaine (GBB), a substance that is found in every cell of the human body.
Under conditions of increased load, meldonium restores the balance between the delivery and demand of cells for oxygen, eliminates the accumulation of toxic metabolic products in cells, protecting them from damage; also has a tonic effect. As a result of its use, the body's resistance to stress and the ability to quickly restore energy reserves increases.
Mildronate has a stimulating effect on the central nervous system - increasing physical activity and physical endurance. Due to these properties, MILDRONATE® is used incl. to improve physical and mental performance.
After oral administration, the drug is rapidly absorbed, bioavailability - 78%. Cmax in blood plasma is achieved within 1-2 hours after ingestion. It is metabolized in the body mainly in the liver with the formation of 2 main metabolites, which are excreted by the kidneys. T1 / 2 when taken orally depends on the dose, is 3–6 hours. Trace concentrations of the drug remain in the body for a long time.
Reduced performance, mental and physical overload.
hypersensitivity to meldonia or any other component of the drug;
