Indication of Alpha-Liv Syrup

Slow liver functions, fatty liver, and supportive treatment of hepatocellular jaundice and toxic liver damage.

The liver plays a key role in metabolism. It has anabolic and catabolic, exocrine, and endocrine functions. The liver is a blood reservoir, filter, and store of different substances (e.g. glycogen, vitamins). It is the site of serum protein (e.g. albumin, prothrombin, fibrinogen) and enzyme synthesis. Metabolic processes (e.g. bilirubin, hormone, carbohydrate, and lipid turnover) and the removal of toxic products are important liver functions.

Hepatotoxins (e.g. alcohol, tetracycline, acetaminophen, fungal toxins, and anabolic steroids) can cause specific damage to liver cells. Toxic hepatitis may be clinically silent or severe enough to lead to the rapid development of hepatic failure. Clinical features include hepatomegaly, enzyme abnormalities, fever, abdominal pain, anorexia, nausea, vomiting, and weight loss. In patients with underlying cirrhosis, manifestations of portal hypertension may predominate. Aversion to fatty food, abdominal discomfort, nausea, and vomiting after meals may be symptoms of cholelithiasis. Jaundice results from an accumulation of bilirubin. It has non-hepatic as well as hepatic causes. Hyperbilirubinaemia may be due to abnormalities in the formation, transport, metabolism, or excretion of bilirubin.

Alpha-Liv Syrup aids recovery and normalization of liver functions. The severe liver disease needs specialized treatment.
