Liver is the biggest of all internal organs and has an important role in many metabolic processes. The metabolism of carbohydrates, proteins and fats as well as detoxication of the body goes on in liver. Liver excretes bile. When an agent attacks liver, in lighter cases liver defends itself, but if that's not possible, the illness become chronical and starts to destroy liver and organism.
The most common reasons of liver toxifications are:
- alcohol-"the biggest enemy of liver"
- medicaments; some drugs; paracetamol and some antibiotics
- xenobiotics-poisonous mushroom's toxins
- viruses; hepatitis; exotic viruses (ebola)
- Epstein Barr's virus, rubeola
- industrial chemicals
Liver exposed to these agens and/or chemotherapy, X-rays, drugs, environmental factors (pesticides, heavy metals, air pollution, smoking) diminishes the ability of self-regeneration or its activity even stops.
HEPATOVIT enhances liver´s activity acting positively in a number of illnesses, from hepatitis to chirrosis.
HEPATOVIT is a natural product based on a plant Silybum marianum (Milk thistle), the well-known plant in pharmaceutical industry for its antihepatotoxic effect, but also for asthma, hemorroids, skin disorders, strengthening of body.
The active ingredient-silymarin- is a common name for a group of three flavonolignans (silybinin, silychristin and silymarin), whose antihepatotoxic effect has been proved in numerous pharmaceutical studies.
The silymarin complex acts in two ways:
1. Protect toxins entering into liver by blocking outer wall membranes of hepatocytes, or transport system in a liver cells.
2. Enhances regeneration of liver cells already damaged by hepatotoxic agents activating biosynthesis of proteins in a liver.
That´s mean that silymarin´s effect in preventing liver destruction and enhancing liver function relates largely to its ability to inhibit the factors that are responsible for hepatitis damage i.e. free radicals and leukotriens, coupled with an ability to stimulate liver protein synthesis.
Basically, silymarin prevents free radicals damage by acting as an antioxidant, many times more potent than vitamin E.
Other components of the "HEPATOVIT"; eteric oils of the peppermint and Helichrysi, bitter substances of Achillea, dandelion and bogbeas, as well inulin from dandelion and other componenst act together synergistically and guarantee the mighty herbal product which effectively protects against damages caused by risic factors of the environment and life style.
"HEPATOVIT" exerts both a protective and restorative effect on the liver. It has positive effect in treating liver diseases of various kind, including chirrosis, chronic hepatitis, fatty infiltration of the liver and inflammation of the bile duct.
"HEPATOVIT" capsules are used as food supplement, until "HEPATOVIT FORTE" capsules are medicament in form of food supplement (isolated silymarin in 70-80%), and are used especially in case of difficulty damages of liver.
