Hepto Care Pro contains Milk thistle extract (silymarin 80%) and provides silymarin 120 mg and Picrorhiza kurroa 130 mg. Silymarin stimulates liver tissue regeneration by increasing protein synthesis in damaged liver. Silymarin inhibits the transformation of stellate hepatocytes into myofibroblasts which are responsible for the deposition of collagen fibers leading to cirrhosis. Moreover in patients with liver diseases, silymarin increases superoxide dismutase (SOD) activity of lymphocytes and erythrocytes as well as expression of SOD in lymphocytes.
Picrorhiza kurroa/kutkins/picroliv are a group of pharmacologically active compounds present in Pirorhiza kurroa. Its antioxidant effect has been shown to be similar to that of superoxide dismutase, metal ion chelators and xanthine oxidase inhibitors. It has shown to have an anti-lipid peroxidative and anti-inflammatory effect. It has also been shown to stimulate the regenerative ability of the liver possibly via nucleic acid and ribosomal protein synthesis.
Hepto Care Pro is indicated for non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), anorexia of liver origin, jaundice, chronic fever, acute viral hepatitis, cholestasis, IBS, skin disorder of liver origin, cirrhosis of liver and chronic hepatitis.
