Diosmin and Hesperidin is a phlebotonic drug and a vascular protecting agent. It reinforces venous tone by prolonging the activity of parietal noradrenaline. Thus Diosmin and Hesperidin decreases venous capacitance, venous distensibility, and venous emptying time.
Diosmin and Hesperidin protects the microcirculation by fighting the microcirculation damaging process; It combats venous inflammation by decreasing leukocyte activation, and as a consequence, by inhibiting the release of inflammatory mediators, principally free radicals and prostaglandin. Thus Diosmin and Hesperidin normalizes capillary permeability and strengthens capillary resistance.
Diosmin and Hesperidin acts on the lymphatic system, It improves lymphatic drainage by increasing lymph flow and lymph oncotic pressure.

Diosmin (up to 900 mg/day) has been administered to a small number of breast cancer patients who were experiencing lymphedema following surgical and nodal irradiation treatment with resultant reduction of arm edema but no effect on the cancer. Animal studies and more than 20 years of clinical use in Europe have not found any evidence of carcinogenicity or mutagenicity when the components of Diosmin & Hesperidin are used as recommended. As a precaution, Diosmin & Hesperidin is not recommended for patients with a history of cancer since no specific studies have been performed in this population.
