Hepax forte powder

Supporting the liver function.

Hepax forte powder combines many beneficial ingredients for liver health and supports the intrinsic synthesis of S-Adenosyl methionine (SAMe). It contains a high concentration of the hepato-protective milk thistle. This stabilizes and protects the cell walls of the hepatocytes. Other ingredients, such as reishi, betaine and lecithin, slow down the accumulation of fats in the tissues and support detoxification processes. The metabolic processes related to SAMe, which is crucial for detoxification, are supported by betaine, lecithin, vitamin B, magnesium and zinc.

Hepax forte in powder form is easy to mix into food and administer, making it perfect for dogs and cats that refuse tablets. Hepax forte powder contains no added flavorings and is suitable for allergy sufferers.

Ingredients (excerpt)

  • Milk thistle extract (Silybum marianum fructus)

    The fruit of the milk thistle has positive, supportive properties when it comes to liver function as it helps eliminate free radicals in the liver. Extraced from the milk thistle fruit, silymarin can positively influence the biosynthetics capacity of hepatocytes. In a double-blind study of humans with alcohol cirrhosis, silymarin significantly reduced the mortality rate.

  • Artichoke extract (Cynara scolymus folium)

    Artichoke leaves are known to have choleretic, cholicinetic and hepato-stimulating properties. They are also known to reduce cholesterol and lipid-levels. That's why artichoke leaves can help support a dysfunctioning liver and gallbladder.

  • Reishi ground (Ganoderma lucidum)

    Often called the mushroom of immortality, the reishi has been used for over 4000 years in traditional Chinese phytoscience and is now known worldwide as one of our most important medicinal mushrooms. It supports liver function by inhibiting lipid accumulation and collagen storage. Additionally, the triterpene of the reishi has been proven to inhibit the angiotensin-conversions-enzyme (ACE) in humans, which is responsible for producing angiotensin which, in turn, increases blood pressure. It also facilitates blood oxygenation, which means that organs are provided with more oxygen.

  • Lecithin

    Once it reaches the liver, lecithin is converted into choline, which is the chemical compound responsible for eliminating excess fats from the liver. Its absence can lead to fatty liver, which is why replenishing its numbers supports liver function. Choline can also be converted into betaine, which forms part of S-Adenosyl methionine (SAMe) – one of the key compounds responsible for liver detoxification.

  • Betaine

    Betaine plays an important role in methionine synthesis in the liver, where the amino acid methionine is converted to S-Adenosyl methionine (SAMe). SAMe, in turn, plays a crucial role in liver detoxification. Betaine also help prevent fatty liver.

  • B vitamins

    B vitamins are stored in the liver and are cofactors in its detoxification processes and syntheses. Vitamin B12 (cobalmin) is particularly important as it is a cofactor in the methionine and S-Adenosyl methionine syntheses.

  • Magnesium

    Magnesium is necessary for the synthesis of S-Adenosyl methionine (SAM), which plays an important role in liver detoxification processes.

  • Zinc

    The liver is the primary organ for zinc metabolism so healthy zinc levels help improve the liver's regenerative capacity and maintain its functionality.

  • Vitamin E

    As an antioxidant, vitamin E has the ability to bind free radicals in the liver. Free radicals are a very active form of oxygen that can damage tissues and reduce metabolic functions. Vitamin E significantly reduces the number of free radicals, thus protecting the liver's tissues and functions.
