Broncopulmin

Broncopulmin

Oral Bronchodilator for Horses

Oral bronchodilator for use in horses.

Clenbuterol is a sympathomimetic amine. It has selectivity for the β2-receptor sites within the body, which include the lungs and the uterus. This selectivity allows intense bronchodilating properties with minimum direct effect on the cardiovascular system. Clenbuterol also has a stabilising effect on mast cells, preventing the release of histamine, serotonin and bradykinin. Broncopulmin Powder therefore has a beneficial effect on mucociliary clearance by increasing the amount of mucus cleared by the mucociliary escalator.
