  • Hirudin is the most studied component of leech saliva. It is a powerful anticoagulant / blood-thinner which prevents unhealthy blood clotting, reduces blood viscosity and improves blood circulation throughout the body.
  • Destabilase in leech saliva cleans blood by dissolving blood clots and thrombus and prevents formation of new ones. It lengthens the blood clotting time and has strong  anti-aggregating properties causing decomposition of clotted blood.
  • Apyrase – cleans blood vessels by dissolving cholesterol plaques on vessel walls and prevents arteries from hardening. It determines the anti-sclerotic effect of leech saliva. Apyrase increases the activity of the  lipoprotein lipase enzyme that decreases the total cholesterol and low-density  betalipoproteins levels which lead to formation of atherosclerotic plaques in the blood vessels.
  • Hualuronidase smoothes the inner walls of blood vessels which helps the blood flow. It also improves microcirculation by promoting the formation of new capillaries
  • Histamine-like substances in leech saliva have antispasmodic effect thanks to vasodilator agent that causes arteries to dilate which eases the blood flow.
