Legendary ointment "Asterisk" appeared in the pharmacies of the Soviet Union in about 70 years. I remember her literally everything, because it was really effective (sometimes indispensable) and inexpensive drug. Balm tried to treat everything from acute infections to chronic rheumatism. Most surprising was the fact that the drug actually helped in many cases.
At some point, the ointment has disappeared from the shelves. However, the healing properties of it was so high that Russian pharmacists assist in the return of a medicinal balm on the market. Today we will tell you what really is this legendary substance, how it is constructed and how it can be applied at the present time.
The original ointment was called the "Vietnamese star", and produced it, respectively, in the Vietnamese factories. Specific author of the original lineup were the scientists of Vietnamese pharmaceutical companies of "Danava", Danapha Pharmaceutical JSC. The name Cao Sao vàng American pharmacists translated as "Balm "gold star"" with this label he appeared on our market. The Soviet people ointment tasted not immediately delivered for some reason she with instruction in their native language. In the first embodiment, the ointment did not contain the healing eucalyptus oil — add it turned the drug a miracle.
In the original ointment contains only those substances for several hundreds of years used in folk medicine the Vietnamese themselves. This is actually one of the very few folk medicines, which is recognized as useful by pharmacologists around the world. It is composed exclusively of essential oils of medicinal plants — no chemicals here was not. The manufacturer lists included here are components in the supplied instructions: there is clove, eucalyptus and peppermint oil, flavored with auxiliary substances from various herbs.
Red jar with a gold star is the best fit in the Soviet and post-Soviet reality. Maybe that is why the design did not change and are currently: brand in our country, is recognizable almost the same as any "Coca-Cola".
We have so far produced four of the "Gold star". It is a gel, cream, liquid balm and inhaled a pencil. They differ only in ease of use, the same everywhere. By and large, stuck only ointment, everything else still looks for our rights pretty exotic.
Most often, the ointment is used for colds, colds and other similar diseases. "Gold star" is a great cure for mosquito bites: cooling and irritant receptors in the skin the effect is so strong that the body is forced to focus on the new sensations.
Apply the ointment only needs externally. Contact with mucous membranes even the slightest particle of " * " may cause extreme discomfort to the patient and, as a side effect, unhealthy fits of laughter to others. The ointment must be rubbed in certain places: for headache — whiskey, colds treated by rubbing in the back, chest and abdomen.
