Pharmacological properties.


Escin is a natural mixture of triterpene saponins obtained from horse chestnut seeds (Aesculus hippocastanum L.), which have decongestant, venotonic, and anti-inflammatory activity. In addition, escin acts at the initial stage of the inflammatory process associated with increased membrane and capillary permeability and the production of exudate in adjacent tissues.

Escin reveals anti-serotonin and antihistamine effects.

Escin inhibits the activity of prostaglandin synthetase. This enzyme is necessary for the formation of prostaglandins, which play an important role in the mechanism of inflammation.

Escin prevents the decrease in ATP content in endothelial cells and increases the activity of phospholipase A2, an enzyme responsible for the release of precursors of inflammatory mediators.

Escin reduces the activity of lysosomal enzymes that break down proteoglycans that are contained in the walls of capillaries. This increases the resistance of capillaries, reduces their permeability, thereby reducing the amount of exudate and the formation of edema.
