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 (a large and diverse group of enzymes, which catalyze the oxidation of organic substances), hastens the recovery period and ensures early restoration of hepatic functions in infective hepatitis. It facilitates the rapid elimination of acetaldehyde (produced by the oxidation of ethanol that is popularly believed to cause hangovers) and ensures protection from alcohol-induced hepatic damage. Liv.52 DS also diminishes the lipotropic (compounds that help catalyze the breakdown of fat) effect in chronic alcoholism and prevents fatty infiltration of the liver. In pre-cirrhotic conditions, Liv.52 DS arrests the progress of cirrhosis and prevents further liver damage.
Improves appetite: In anorexia and less than optimal growth and weight gain, Liv.52 DS normalizes the basic appetite-satiety rhythm. It also addresses loss of appetite during pregnancy. As a daily health supplement, Liv.52 DS improves appetite, digestion and assimilation processes and promotes weight gain.
* Liv.52 DS is a double strength hepatospecific formulation, designed for the treatment and management of liver disorders
Liv.52 was launched in 1955, and millions of physicians worldwide recommend Liv.52 (tablet, syrup, and drops forms), for various hepatic disorders. Liv.52 is an extensively researched product of The Himalaya Drug Company. Various clinical studies such as open clinical studies, randomized controlled studies, meta-analysis, as well as independent investigator initiated clinical studies (including those carried out abroad) have reported that Liv.52 is beneficial in various hepatic conditions. The product has more than 300 research articles published in scientific journals.
Each herbal ingredient of Liv.52 is been analyzed as per the standards set by Pharmacopoeia. The battery of non-clinical toxicological studies (acute, subacute, chronic, genotoxicity, developmental, and reproductive toxicity studies) have further reinforced the safety of Liv.52, with a wide margin. We ensure consistent quality in every batch (as per WHO standards for herbal medicine). Himalaya’s manufacturing facility is GMP certified and audited at regular intervals by several regulatory agencies around the world, wherever our products are marketed. Also, The Himalaya Drug Company’s advanced Research and Development (R&D) Center is certified for Good Laboratory Practices (GLP) for following international OECD guidelines.
With reference to heavy metals, considering some trace levels of heavy metals occurring naturally in botanical/ plants/ food ingredients, many regulatory agencies have defined the permissible limits for heavy metal contaminants in herbal medicines after considering the epidemiological aspects of such contaminants. In this direction, both WHO and AYUSH have defined the limits of heavy metals (NMT 10 ppm of lead) in Ayurvedic Medicines. We, at The Himalaya Drug Company, follow these guidelines for all our medicinal products and ensure that our products comply with these regulations. Apart from these, we align with the quality guidelines published by major regulatory agencies like USFDA (12.5mcg/day of lead), Health Canada (10 mcg/day of lead), HSA Singapore (10 ppm of lead), etc., to ensure highest quality of the product. The table below indicates the permitted levels of heavy metals by different international agencies, and Liv.52 complies with all the below mentioned standards.
