 cytoflavin pregnancy
 Citoflavin, like all other drugs during pregnancy may be administered only by a physician with the necessary evidence and the absence of contraindications for such treatment. The main contraindication is the individual intolerance of components.


Hypoxia during pregnancy

One of the main hazards to the fetus during pregnancy is hypoxia, ie insufficient supply it with oxygen. At the same time the most affected cells in the brain of the child.

Hypoxia is a complex process in which there is a violation of the delivery and absorption of oxygen in the cells of the body. It can develop in violation of the functions of respiration, circulation, metabolism Metabolism: The basis of life of all living things  Metabolism: The basis of life of all living things
   in these cells and so on. At the same time developing a mismatch between tissue oxygen demand and entering the bloodstream. Sometimes hypoxia occurs with metabolic disorders in the cell itself due to lack of the necessary components for biochemical reactions. In most cases those components are vitamins - they are part of enzymes involved in the biochemical reactions.

Depending on how severe hypoxia was and how long it lasted, brain injury can range from minor to severe, resulting in the child's disability.

Such a complex mechanism of development and treatment of hypoxia are doing it is also quite complicated. In order to prevent loss of brain cells child under hypoxia today often prescribed cytoflavin - a drug that meets all the requirements of the treatment of hypoxia.


How does the drug

The structure of the combined drug cytoflavin includes four components (succinic acid, Riboxinum Riboxinum - a drug that will charge the cells with energy  Riboxinum - a drug that will charge the cells with energy
 , Nicotinamide and riboflavin mononucleotide) to reinforce the effect of each other and have a generally neuroprotective effect, i.e. to protect brain cells (neurons) from the harmful effects .  In addition, reduces the need cytoflavin neurons in oxygen, ie "make work properly" cell in a saving of oxygen .  This happens due to the fact that cytoflavin prevents significant reduction of the energy level in the cell, stimulating the activity of the enzymes involved in anaerobic (oxygen-free) reaction energy from glucose and is itself the source of energy .  It also activates the intracellular synthesis of nucleic acids and proteins, the intracellular accumulation of energy reserves, improves blood oxygen saturation, limiting the area of ​​ischemic tissue damage the fetal brain and stimulates the recovery of affected cells .

Succinic acid, part of cytoflavin can be used tissue cells as an additional source of energy: the energy produced by a lack of oxygen a little - this is the main cause of degradation of the cells. Succinic acid has also antioxidant (inhibits the action of free radicals) and cytoprotective (protects cells from any impacts) properties.

Riboxinum also has an antioxidant effect, which is realized by stimulating the process of formation of energy from glucose Glucose: The energy source  Glucose: The energy source
   without air activation and synthesis of nicotinamide enzymes that protect cells against free radicals.

Riboflavin (vitamin B2) has a direct anti-hypoxic action, as it is a part of enzymes involved in cell respiration. He has an antioxidant effect.

Nicotinamide (Vitamin PP) - as a coenzyme (part enzymes) activate enzymes of cells, including antioxidant system to protect the cell membranes from degradation by free radicals. Nicotinamide is also a selective inhibitor of the enzyme, which leads to disruption of the synthesis of intracellular proteins and subsequent apoptosis (self-destruction) of cells.

Thus, all components cytoflavin have a positive effect on cells and tissues primarily brain tissue of the fetus. They activate metabolism Improves metabolism and losing weight without dieting  Improves metabolism and losing weight without dieting
   in general, by increasing cell energy resources, promote the absorption of free oxygen, thereby reducing the level of oxidation-reduction reactions resulting in the formation of free radicals.


Application cytoflavin for treatment of hypoxia during pregnancy

Since cytoflavin has all the necessary properties for the treatment and prevention of fetal hypoxia, it quite often used in obstetric practice. For treatment of minor hypoxia it is prescribed in tablets, and treatment is carried out in an outpatient setting.

In severe hypoxia administered intravenous drip of the drug, most often this treatment is carried out in a hospital.

Hofitol during pregnancy: the late toxicosis

 Hofitol during pregnancy
 Hofitol is an antioxidant Antioxidants: the truth about the notorious benefits  Antioxidants: the truth about the notorious benefits
   - Reduces the harmful effects of free radicals produced as a result of redox reactions. Additionally, it protects the liver and kidneys, improves lipid metabolism and reduce the amount of cholesterol in the blood.

 Hofitol during pregnancy: the late toxicosis

Why pregnant women hofitol

Hofitol - a herbal medicine, extract of artichoke field with a mild antioxidant, diuretic, choleretic and anti-atherosclerotic effect. It improves the condition of blood vessels and blood flow in small blood vessels, including the vessels of the placenta.

During pregnancy, all the organs and tissues of women have an increased load. As a result, the body produces a large amount of free radicals formed as a result of redox reactions. These overactive "fragments" bring a lot of harm to the body, destroying a variety of cells. Therefore, the antioxidant properties of Chophytol pregnancy come in handy. It is especially necessary Chophytol antioxidant effect in the event that a woman has some inflammation or infection foci. For example, in infectious and inflammatory diseases of the kidney and urinary tract diseases - they are very common during pregnancy.

A particularly high load during pregnancy carries the liver is forced to process and display a large number of metabolic waste products. Hofitol possesses hepatoprotective action that helps to protect liver cells from the effects of toxins, including nitro compounds, alkaloids, heavy metals. Hofitol increases the production of coenzyme (often perform this function vitamins) cells of the liver and has an impact on fat metabolism Improves metabolism and losing weight without dieting  Improves metabolism and losing weight without dieting
 Including the exchange of cholesterol and certain toxic products of fat metabolism, improving the neutralizing function of the liver. It cleans the liver after treatment with antibiotics.

Bile properties Chophytol allow faster display products of metabolism from the body. Choleretic action takes place mainly due to the improvement of bile flow, increasing its volume and the active removal of bile salts. All of this helps to improve digestion, prevents the development of cholecystitis, reduces flatulence and restores intestinal function. As is known, pregnant women often suffer from flatulence, heartburn, bloating and constipation. Hofitol, restoring the function of the liver, is slowly but surely improving their condition.

Recently hofitol often used for the prevention of preeclampsia - the second half of pregnancy toxemia. If you suffer from this disease blood circulation in small blood vessels, resulting in over time, begin to suffer all organs and systems. Hofitol improves the condition of small blood vessels and blood flow in them, which is the prevention of preeclampsia. Also improves blood circulation in the placenta, results in improved perfusion of the fetus, arrival thereto of nutrients and oxygen. Therefore hofitol appointed well as placental insufficiency Placental insufficiency - deviation from the norm  Placental insufficiency - deviation from the norm
 When the fetus is suffering from circulatory disorders. This mainly affected the brain of the fetus from lack of oxygen. If the condition lasts long enough, the changes that occur in the brain of the fetus may become irreversible.

One of the earliest manifestations of preeclampsia are swelling. Hofitol improves blood and the kidneys, and displays the excess fluid How to withdraw excess fluid from the body - all sorts of ways  How to withdraw excess fluid from the body - all sorts of ways
   excreted. As a result of the impact of the progression of preeclampsia may stop at an early stage.

How to take hofitol, indications and contraindications for its reception

Hofitol prescribed to pregnant women in individually adjusted doses with different duration of treatment in the following diseases and conditions:

  • with the threat of preeclampsia;
  • when abdominal discomfort, nausea, belching, bloating;
  • for violations of the outflow of bile in the background dyskinesia (violation of motor activity), bile ducts and gall bladder;
  • in inflammation of the gallbladder - cholecystitis;
  • acute and chronic hepatitis and other liver lesions in a phase of recovery;
  • at different intoxication - poisoning substances organic and inorganic nature, including drugs;
  • with any kidney disease;
  • obesity and atherosclerosis.

Hofitol usually well tolerated by pregnant women, but sometimes it may cause diarrhea and vomiting, in this case, the reception Chophytol need to stop. Only the drug is contraindicated if you are hypersensitive and obstruction of the biliary tract (eg, when they are clogging the stone).

Hofitol - a drug that can be taken during pregnancy, but on prescription.
