One ampoule contains
active substance – L-Alpha glycerylphosphorylcholine (alpha–GPC, choline alfoscerate) in terms of 100% substance – 1000 mg,
excipient – water for injection
It easily penetrates the blood-brain barrier, 85% is excreted by the lungs as carbon dioxide, the rest (15%) is excreted by the kidneys and through the intestines.
Nootropic agent. Central anticholinergic stimulant, which contains 40.5% of metabolically protected choline. Metabolic protection promotes the release of choline in the brain. Provides the synthesis of acetylcholine and phosphatidylcholine in neuronal membranes, improves blood flow and enhances metabolic processes in the central nervous system, activates the reticular formation. Increases the linear velocity of blood flow on the side of traumatic brain injury, promotes the normalization of the space-time characteristics of spontaneous bioelectric activity of the brain, regression of focal neurological symptoms and restoration of consciousness; has a positive effect on the cognitive and behavioral responses of patients with cerebrovascular diseases (discirculatory encephalopathy and residual cerebral circulation disorders). It has a preventive and corrective effect on the pathogenetic factors of the involutionary psychoorganic syndrome, changes the phospholipid composition of neuronal membranes and reduces cholinergic activity. Stimulates the dose-dependent release of acetylcholine under physiological conditions; participating in the synthesis of phosphatidylcholine (membrane phospholipid), it improves synaptic transmission, plasticity of neuronal membranes, and receptor function. It does not affect the reproductive cycle and does not have a teratogenic, mutagenic effect.
Indications for use
