Relgin comprises of an active ingredient Rasagiline that works by increasing the level of dopamine in the brain. Decreased level of dopamine affects the body movements and gives rise to symptoms like tremors and shaking of legs. Being an inhibitor of monoamine oxide, Rasagiline increases the level of dopamine in the brain. Once the level of dopamine starts increasing in the brain, it ultimately results in the improved muscle control. Dopamine plays a vital role in maintaining the chemical balance in the brain.
