Straight-chain heteropolysaccharides with varying degrees of sulfation

Heparinoids are mucopolysaccharides obtained from different tissues of animal origin through a gentle extraction process that guarantees integrity of their active elements.

What is it? What is it for?

Heparinoids are straight-chain heteropolysaccharides with varying degrees of sulfation. Their main constituents, dermatan sulfate A, heparan sulfate, and chondroitin sulfate, have a wide spectrum of biological activities, but a very limited anticoagulant capacity.


Functional properties

Heparinoids possess the same functional properties as each of their individual components. There is however, a pronounced synergism that increases the individual pharmacological effect of their components.

Therapeutically, effects have been proven on:

  • Activation of lipoprotein removal through stimulation of lipases responsible for their degradation (lipasemic activity).
  • Inhibition of cell proliferation in vascular walls.
  • Regulation of plasma protein transport through capillary walls, preventing protein loss in the glomerular structures of the kidney.
  • Prevention of lipoprotein deposition in vascular walls and inhibition of cholesterol accumulation in arterial tissue, contributing to decreased atherosclerotic disorders.



  • Acting at the epidermal level as an antiedematous and anticongestive agent, promoting the elimination of minor superficial bleeding, enabling the rapid reabsorption of bruises.
  • Hydrating effect due to their chondroitin and dermatan sulfate content.
  • Effectiveness against flaccidity and inflammation of altered epidermal areas due to their anticellulitic and antivaricose properties.
