What is Meldonium Mildronate ?
The active substance in Mildronate is Meldonium dehydrate . Meldonium positively affects oxygen metabolism of human organism and mildly activates central nervous system. These two effects combined means that Meldonium often increases energy levels and enhances performance in sports and every day life.
Movement and agility
Health of hearth
Recovery process after workouts
When Meldonium is used?
Athletes use it to improve their stamina, enhance oxygen metabolism , speed up recovery process , increase performance.
It is used to help recover from various heart conditions.In recovery period after cerebrovascular illness, head trauma and encephalitis.
Lowered work ability, physical and psycho-emotional overload.
The science behind MELDONIUM
When organism is physically active Mildronate restores oxygen supply and restores balance of oxygen consumption in cells, it activates metabolism processes which leads to oxygen less oxygen consumption while producing energy. Usually under intense physical activity organism gets tired fast, but if Mildronate is consumed ,organism gets used to physical activity , it economically uses oxygen and rapidly renews energy reserves.
Meldonium Mildronate increase speed of nerve impulses in organism by undertaking functions of gammabutyrobetain , thus all the corresponding reactions and impulses in organism becomes faster which leads to faster metabolism. That’s why consumption of Meldonium Mildronate leads to patients feeling more energised and athletes improve their performance.
Back in 1975, the creator of Mildronate (also known as Meldonium), professor Kalvins, was studying all body chemicals that can be deplenished during endurance trainings. He found that one particular chemical – Gamma Butyrobetaine – is being deplenished under physical workloads. He changed this molecule by replacing one atom of Carbon with that of Nitrogen so that the new molecule would not decompose and could act as a transmitter from CNS to peripheral cells.
Mildronate was approved for use to general public in 1984. It is a metabolic enhancer that can normalise cellular energy metabolism. As such, it is usually used to treat angina, myocardial failure and reduce alcohol withdrawal symptoms. Off – label use of Meldonuim in otherwise healthy individuals includes increasing exercise tolerance, learning, memory and even sexual function.
Mildronate gained popularity after Sharapova, a famous tennis player, said that she has been taking this drug for the last 10 years because of healthy reasons. Also, a number of other world and olympic champions admitted taking it.
Interesting facts about Mildronate:
Latvia is selling about 70 million Euro of Mildronate annually, which is about 0.7% of the total exports of this country.
The creator of the drug, professor Ivars Kalvins, claims that Meldonium has never been found to have anabolic properties; it is rather a cardioprotector that can protect cardiovascular system of athletes from ischemia under high physical workloads. He also says, that, as such, most athletes actually should use it to diminish the negative effects associated with high-intensity trainings.
