Pharmacological actions of Liv.52 DS:
Hepatoprotective action: The natural ingredients in Liv.52 DS exhibit potent hepatoprotective properties against chemically-induced hepatotoxicity. It restores the functional efficiency of the liver by protecting the hepatic parenchyma and promoting hepatocellular regeneration. The antiperoxidative activity of Liv.52 DS prevents the loss of functional integrity of the cell membrane, maintains cytochrome P-450 enzyme system. Liv.52 increases glucose uptake, enhances fatty acid metabolism, possesses antioxidant effect, and thus decreases fat accumulation in the liver. These actions synergistically help in preventing non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH). In pre-cirrhotic conditions, Liv.52 arrests the progress of cirrhosis and prevents further liver damage.
Improves appetite: Liv.52 helps overcome anorexia during pregnancy.
Key ingredients in Liv.52 DS:
The Caper Bush (Himsra)contains p-methoxy benzoic acid, which is a potent hepatoprotective. It prevents the elevation of malondialdehyde (biomarker for oxidative stress) levels in plasma and hepatic cells. Caper Bush also inhibits elevation in the ALT and AST enzyme levels and improves the functional efficiency of the liver and spleen. Flavonoids present in the Caper Bush exhibit significant antioxidant properties, as well.
Chicory (Kasani) protects the liver against alcohol toxicity. It is also a potent antioxidant, which evidenced by its free radical scavenging property. The hepatoprotective property of Chicory suppresses the oxidative degradation of DNA in tissue debris.
