Why does it work?

 (Sig, et al 2017). Cooper and Mologne (2017) report that leech saliva contains over 100 bioactive substances:

  • anaesthetics(to reduce or stop pain)

  • vasodilators (to improve blood supply)

  • bacteriostatics (to stop bacteria from reproducing)

  • anti-inflammatories (to reduce or stop inflammation)

  • anti-edematous (to reduce oedema)

  • anti-coagulants (to stop blood clotting)

Medicinal leeches are single use.
