The liver has many vital functions to perform in the human body. It plays such a dominant role in the metabolism (sugar, proteins and fats) in the digestion (Secretion of bile) and in the detoxification of wastes. Any form of liver damage causes changes in the membranes of liver cells and thus affect the functional capacity of the liver.
Silymarin, the active principle of Legalon, is of plant origin. It acts as a cell membrane stabilizer and is capable of protecting liver against deleterious agents. It also helps to restore damaged liver cells so that they regain their capacity.
These effects are reflected in an improvement in the general condition and relief of digestive disorders.
