Hepato DR is a marvelous hepatoprotective and restorative, for use as an adjunctive therapy, for protection from the deleterious effects medications may have upon the system, especially upon the liver. Whenever liver function tests must be done while on a medication, this indicates that the medications have a potentially damaging effect upon the liver. This formula helps to protect and restore the liver from such damage.

Hepato DR™ is a marvelous hepatoprotective and restorative, for use as an adjunctive therapy, for protection from the deleterious effects medications may have upon the system, especially upon the liver. Whenever "liver function tests" must be done while on a medication, this indicates that the medications have a potentially damaging effect upon the liver. This formula helps to protect and restore the liver from such damage. For those suffering with infectious hepatitis, combine with the Astragalus combo. If poor digestion is a problem, combine with Canadian Bitters, a great tonic for "dyspepsia" (poor digestion accompanied by gas and bloating). For sluggish bowels and constipation (one sign of compromised liver function), consider this in combination with Psyllium Seed Combo. For hemorrhoids (another sign of compromised liver function), consider this in combination with Stone Root Combo. Combine with Crampbark Combo, for dysmenorrhea (painful periods). Menstrual irregularities are often associated with compromised liver function. Use during cancer chemotherapy, with Astragalus Combo and 4 Herb Combo, for protection from deleterious effects (under the advice of your physician; not meant as an alternative to conventional therapies).
Hepato DR™ (Silybum marianum)
Pliny (77 AD) described Milk Thistle as being "excellent for carrying off the bile". Milk Thistle is our best restorative and protectant of the liver. Milk thistle and silymarin, one of its active components, has been shown to reduce liver enzymes (signs of destruction) significantly, in individuals suffering with chronic hepatitis, as well as in alcoholic cirrhosis,. Silibinin, another component of this herb, has shown to also be completely protective against kidney damage induced by a form of chemotherapy (in lab animals).
Dandelion (Taraxacum officinalis)
Dandelion is a valuable liver and kidney alterative medicine. "Alteratives" are that class of herbal medicine that stimulate health, function, and secretion of an organ, thereby correcting chronic disease. Alteratives stimulate detoxification of the body by various routes. Dandelion root acts primarily on the liver, whereas the leaves act primarily upon the kidney. The whole plant extract of Dandelion is thus one of our best all-around alteratives. This activity is necessary in cases of chronic disease of various types, especially for arthritis, cancer, immune, and skin diseases. Dandelion is classified as a bitter digestive stimulant, liver trophorestorative, diuretic, and detoxicant. Specific uses include inflammation and congestion of liver; gall bladder colic (from stones); eczema; acne; gout and rheumatism.
Artichoke (Cynara scolymus)
Containing Cynarin, a potent choloretic (promotes flow of bile), Artichoke is useful for congestion of the liver, and has liver regenerative effects similar to Milk Thistle. Can be used specifically for high cholesterol and hypoglycemia; as a bitter stomachic for dyspepsia (poor digestion accompanied by gas and bloating), and gallstone disease. Artichoke also has potent diuretic effect.
Oregon Grape Root (Berberis aquifolium, Mahonia aquifolium)
Where the center of intoxication is upon the skin, Oregon grape is an especially valuable alterative. Oregon Grape acts to increase the elimination of toxins via the liver, being of value for chronic acne, eczema, psoriasis,
