Mode of Action of Thrombophob Gel 20gm
How Does It Work?
- Thrombophob gel works by the combined action of both of its components - heparin and benzyl nicotinate.
- Heparin is an anticoagulant that works by blocking certain chemical substances (eg. thrombin and fibrin) involved in the blood clotting process. Thus, heparin ultimately helps to reduce blood clots formation in your body.Read less
- Benzyl Nicotinate is a vasodilator; it widens the blood vessels and enhances local heparin absorption. Hence, the healing process is substantially improved and pain is rapidly reduced.
