Overview

Mesoglycan is a substance obtained from cow lungs, cow blood vessels (aorta), or pig intestines. It is sometimes extracted and used as medicine for various blood vessel disorders.

Mesoglycan is used for long-term blood flow problems in the brain (cerebrovascular diseases), narrowing of blood vessels that causes poor blood flow to the limbs (peripheral arterial disease), poor circulation that can lead to varicose veins and other conditions (venous insufficiency), and leg sores caused by weak blood circulation (venous leg ulcer). It is also used for vision problems in people with diabetes (diabetic retinopathy), high blood pressure, and many other conditions, but there is no good scientific evidence to support these other uses.

How does it work ?

Mesoglycan appears to have effects that improve blood flow and reduce the risk of clotting.
