It is quite alarming to know that Filipinos are said to be the 3rd heaviest drinkers not just in Asia but the world. This is based from a report by Euromonitor.
This finding is alarming because excessive alcohol consumption is tagged as one leading cause of liver disease. While Filipinos may reason that drinking alcohol is difficult to avoid as it is frequently served during parties and gatherings, it is not really impossible to say no to. As the saying goes: if there is a will, there is a way.
A decision to keep one’s self healthy can be and must be made. The liver which is said to be “the largest glandular organ in the body”, performs key functions, keeping our body free from toxins and other harmful substances. We need to take care of our liver.
The good news is that there is a dietary supplement which can help us protect our liver: LiverMarin. It contains 250mg of Silymarin or Milk Thistle, and 100mg of Sodium Ascorbate.
Milk Thistle’s active ingredient “flavonoids” break down into two main components, Silydianin and Silychristin, which together form Silymarin – a supplement found in LiverMarin. It has the potential to protect our livers by acting as an antioxidant. It promotes the growth of new liver cells and at the same time prevents liver damage. It also prevents cirrhosis, or scarring of the liver, which by the way, is an irreversible damage. This can cause a person to have a weakened immune system.
Regular intake of LiverMarin can also help in digesting fat. It also helps in the treatment of fatty livers, which prevents and treats hepatitis A and B, managing SGPT and SGOT levels and insulin overproduction.
LiverMarin is not a medicinal drug but a dietary supplement and should not be used to treat symptoms of any disease.
Recommended dosage: 1 capsule 3 times a day before meals, or as prescribed by your doctor. LiverMarin at SRP P9.00 per capsule is available at Mercury Drug and other leading drugstores nationwide.
