Detoxification to protect the liver
Liv.52 is a supplement formulated for the liver, an essential organ for healthy bodily function. Part of the digestive system, the liver performs vital functions, mainly those of storage, synthesis and purification. It participates in the metabolism of fats and carbohydrates and stores numerous substances such as glycogen and vitamins. It synthesizes a number of proteins such as albumin and bile, the fluid that helps digestion. Above all, the liver is known for its detoxifying action, which helps destroy or convert toxins such as alcohol, drugs and other waste products. Unfortunately, the liver sometimes has to deal with multiple external aggressors that can prevent it from functioning normally and produce harmful consequences for the body. It is therefore essential to support and protect the liver.
An effective formulation to detoxify the liver
The liver can sometimes be damaged, perhaps due to a disease such as viral hepatitis or a significant accumulation of toxins, as in the case of alcoholism. Without proper treatment, such liver damage can prove dangerous and cause serious complications, eventually leading to irreversible cirrhosis. Liv.52 can offer vital help in detoxifying the liver. Its 50 years of use are proof of its effectiveness, as are more than 170 clinical studies conducted on it. About a hundred studies have also focused on its potential in the prevention and treatment of viral hepatitis, alcoholism, cirrhosis, malnutrition and hepatotoxicity induced by radiation and chemotherapy.
Liv.52 protects, maintains and restores the liver
The Liv.52 formulation is widely used to prevent and fight liver damage. Through its various mechanisms of action, it helps protect, maintain and restore the liver. In particular, scientists believe it has a beneficial effect in:
- protect the liver parenchyma;
- stimulate hepatocellular regeneration;
- enabling the antioxidant activity to maintain the integrity of the cell membrane and increase the levels of the detoxifying enzyme
- of cytochrome P-450;
- stimulating the production of bile;
- facilitate the rapid elimination of acetaldehyde, a toxic intermediate metabolite produced during the degradation of alcohol;
