They are those substances that help protect the liver from external agents (such as alcohol or a high-fat diet), free radicals and, above all, help it do its job well.

HEPATALGINA is a hepatoprotector of plant origin , which traces its bases to the Greek writings of the 4th century BC where reference was already made to the medicinal properties of the leaves of Cynara scolymus (artichoke).

What Is The Liver

The liver is an organ located on the upper right side of the abdomen and is mostly protected by the ribs.

It is one of the largest organs in the human body and receives about 1.3 liters of blood per minute.

This organ is vital to obtain our energy and to keep our body healthy, free of toxins!

How Does The Liver Work?

The Liver Has 6 Main Functions:

1    Digest food: extract essential nutrients for the body such as carbohydrates, lipids and proteins. And it secretes bile that helps the body absorb fats.

2    Regulate blood glucose and store energy in the form of glycogen (reserve sugar).

3    Eliminate toxic substances: filters and eliminates toxins from what we consume, for example, alcohol and medications.

4    Stores vitamins, fats and minerals.

5    Controls the production and elimination of cholesterol.

6   Produces proteins and clotting factors that the body needs

The liver receives blood rich in nutrients and toxins from the intestine.

As it passes through the liver, the blood is filtered. During this process, toxins are transformed into harmless substances to be later eliminated and protect the body from their harmful effects. Medications, for example, are metabolized through the liver so that our body is able to use them and then eliminate them.  

On the other hand, the liver intervenes in the metabolism (synthesis) and regulation of the levels of normal substances in the blood such as carbohydrates (glucose or sugar), lipids (cholesterol and triglycerides) and proteins. It can store or release them into the blood as needed and is a reservoir of vitamins, minerals and clotting substances.

In turn, the liver secretes bile, an essential substance for proper digestion. Bile is made up of bile acids and other substances that help especially to absorb fatty substances (cholesterol, some vitamins, etc.) during digestion. Bile is stored in the gallbladder. When a food rich in fat reaches the stomach, it activates the contraction and emptying of the gallbladder, delivering bile to the intestine. If the amount of bile is insufficient, the sensation of “poor digestion or heaviness” is generated.

Once it has gone through this process, the blood is returned to the general circulation to carry nutrients throughout the body.
