Hepamin OD: Silymarin in Action to Protect our Liver

Wazzup Pilipinas!

The liver is the largest glandular organ of our body which performs many vital functions to keep the body from toxins and harmful substances. However, it is also a silent organ that can be damaged without us knowing it because there are no visible or felt symptoms until its already in a worst condition.

With the proliferation of fatty, oily and junk foods, and the indulgence of many to different varieties of alcoholic drinks and liquor, many of us are highly susceptible to many kinds of liver diseases including the Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease (NAFLD) which is the abnormal accumulation of fat in the liver cells. This disease may cause the liver to swell with risk factors such as obesity, diabetes, overweight and metabolic syndrome. Thus it is very important to take some form of liver care supplements to get the protection we won't normally get from our regular diet and exercise.

Hepamin OD, brought to us by pharmaceutical company Trianon International Inc., is now being introduced to the market to provide the much needed silymarin on a once-a-day dosage as part of the management of liver diseases such as NAFLD.

Silymarin is a unique flavonoid complex containing silydianin, silychrisin and silybin that is derived from the milk thistle plant. Milk thistle is the number one recommended plant extract for the protection and detoxification of vital liver function.

At a media health forum organized by Trianon International, members of the blogging community were treated to a short talk about NAFLD from Dr. Katherine Arupo-Reyes. The forum was held last September 4, 2014 at the Trianion Plenary Hall of Trianon International located at the Narra Building at Pasong Tamo Extension of Makati city.

Dr. Katherine recommends the use of liver protective supplements, lifestyle modification such as regular exercise, eating in moderation and avoiding fatty foods, soda and sugar.

The officers of Trianon International were also present to add additional information to further increase our knowledge of the Hepamin OD product that is said to be imported from abroad.

Hepamin OD has a high silymarin content of 300 mg with an additional 150 mg of other hepato-protective agent (Dandelion Root and Artichoke Leaf). Silymarin is now also being prescribed as a prophylaxis for progression of fatty liver to more severe forms of liver disease.

Some of the metabolic functions of the liver are the maintenance of blood sugar levels, conversion of fat and fatty acids to energy, protein metabolism and synthesis, production of bile for fat breakdown, productio of triglycerides (lipogenesis), metabolism and production of cholesterol (LDL and HDL Cholesterol), breakdown of toxic susbstances, and storage of vitamins and minerals (A,D, B12 and Iron).

Though the product is imported due to the scarcity of the ingredient not commonly found in Asia or the Philippines, the supplement is available to us thanks to Trianon International. This may actually be the best form so far to effectively aid in the protection of our liver.

Since most of us have the habit to over-indulge especially during special occasions and celebrations, it is but important to ingest something that will balance the excess. But we should also remember not to make the taking of the Hepamin OD product as an excuse to go beyond the normal intake of food and liquor.

Frequent nights of excessive drinking and debauchery may cause so much harm that no form of liver care supplement could be able to control and manage. It is still up to our discipline to keep our body fit and healthy.

Trianon is indeed your partner towards a better life for providing us with an alternative source of liver care to supplement our need to protect one of the most important glandular organs of our body. The once-a-day capsule makes our task a lot more easier and convenient to avoid opportunities to forget.
