Himalaya Liv.52 is a dietary supplement aiming at liver health. The product contains a combination of carefully selected herbs which restore the proper liver functions, promote cells regeneration and protect them from the harmful influence of toxins.
The supplement is a valuable element in the prevention of liver dysfunction. It is very popular among athletes using anabolic steroids, it is also recommended for people who receive pharmacological agents and alcohol abusers. It is perfect as a support for hepatic disease treatment, such as hepatitis C, cirrhosis, alcoholic and non-alcoholic fatty liver.
The product is based on natural plant extracts. The manufacturer used unique plants that have been used in the Ayurvedic medicine for centuries to improve the condition of the liver. Their effectiveness is confirmed by numerous clinical studies.
Caper (Capparis spinosa) is a bush occurring mainly in the Mediterranean. Its roots are used for medical purposes. They have scientifically proven hepatoprotective properties, resulting i.a. from the presence of routine. Routine is a very powerful antioxidant that can prevent damage to the liver cells caused by free radicals. The studies showed that Capparis spinosa extracts normalised concentrations of alanine aminotransferase (ALT) and aspartate aminotransferase (AST). Increased activity of these enzymes promotes liver cell necrosis and is related with the damage of this organ. Moreover, caper reduces lipid content in the liver, which can be used in the treatment of fatty liver.
Common chicory (Cichorium intybus) is a plant from the family Asteraceae. It is a rich source of valuable biologically active ingredients, such as phenolic acids, coumarins, flavonoid glycoside and lactones. They have a strong impact on the digestive system by stimulating the production of digestive juices and bile. They can also protect the liver from damage caused by an excess of toxins. Moreover, tests proved that even low doses of Cichorium intybus significantly improve the regeneration of hepatocytes.
Ferric Oxide (Mandur bhasma) is a combination of ferric oxide and Triphala Kashaya, a concentrated aqueous herbal extract. The mixture comes from the Ayurvedic medicine and is mainly used in the treatment of viral hepatitis and disorders of liver functions. Tests in rodents demonstrated that animals receiving Mandur bhasma and exposed to extremely toxic compounds were able to maintain the proper liver functions. All results indicated that liver cells were not damaged at all. In the control group, treated with the same toxins, there have been significant changes in the liver histopathology, which indicated the failure of this organ.
European black nightshade (Solanum nigrum) is a very common plant from the genus Solanum. Its fruits, especially unripe, are widely considered as poisonous, due to the presence of toxic solanin. However, the Ayurvedic medicine and the traditional Chinese medicine prove that the plant extract is very effective in relieving liver ailments. Hepatoprotective properties of the compounds contained in the leaves of black nightshade were confirmed by the research in rodents.
Arjun tree (Terminalia arjuna) is a high tree growing in India and Sri Lanka. Powdered tree bark is widely used in phytotherapy. It contains numerous pharmacologically active compounds, among which the most active are triterpene glycosides, saponins, oligomeric proantocyanids and phytosterols. In the Ayurveda, arjuna is used mainly to support the functioning of the heart and the circulatory system and to prevent cirrhosis. The researchers observed that the compounds contained in the arjun tree cause a significant increase in the level of glutathione, an endogenous antioxidant protecting liver cells and improving detoxification.
Coffee senna (Cassia occidentalis) is a plant popular in the Maldives and Jamaica. Its seeds are used as a coffee substitute. In turn, the leaves and roots are used in herbal medicine, mainly to regulate stool frequency and alleviate the digestive system problems. Cassia occidentalis extracts are also a popular ingredient in the Ayurvedic blends aiming at liver health. In studies, it has been observed that they effectively protect the liver against toxic influence of many compounds (i.a. medicines).
Yarrow (Achillea millefolium) is a plant from the family Asteraceae. The herb is a valued medicinal raw material of anti-inflammatory and bacteriostatic properties. It is also used in case of gastrointestinal disorders, because it stimulates the production of digestive juices and the flow of bile. It shows also detoxifying properties, as it removes both endogenous and exogenous toxins.
French tamarisk (Tamarix gallica) is a deciduous shrub growing in the Mediterranean. It is believed that the extracts from the French tamarisk leaves can improve the condition of the liver and restore its proper functions. The natives use them in case of hepatitis or cirrhosis. Tamarix gallica leaves extract were researched also for hepatoprotective properties. Rodents treated with large amounts of rifampicin and tamarisk extract had the proper results of liver tests and enzyme levels which are the markers of liver damage. Histopathological examination also did not reveal any dangerous changes in the liver. It seems that the extract from Tamarix gallica leaves effectively protects the liver cells from damage caused by toxins.
To sum it all up, Himalaya Liv.52 is a universal dietary supplement which is perfect both as a part of prevention and therapy of liver diseases. It is recommended especially for people who do not nourish well, are exposed to toxins, abuse drugs or alcohol. The supplementation is also recommended for athletes during and after steroid cycle.
