Chemical composition and pharmacological propertiesHepasafe is a hepatotrophic drug.
1 ml contains silymarin - 12 mg and vitamin E - 2 mg (as active ingredients), as well as excipients.
The drug contains complex of isomeric bioflavonoids (flavolignans including silibinin, silicristin, silydianin, isosilibinin and dehydrosilibinin) derived from medicinal herb of holy thistle (Silybum marianum (L.)), as well as essential phospholipids and vitamins.
Holy thistle flavolignans are strong antioxidants inactivating both free radicals and active cellular oxygen, blocking receptors and transportation systems on cellular membrane (which are responsible for transmission of toxic substances to the cell), reducing macrophage cell activity (which participates in antigen presentation), decreasing gamma globulin production, blocking lipoxygenases and cyclooxygenases, thus providing immunomodulatory and anticarcinogenic effect.
