Essentiafarm® is a highly effective fixed-dose combination, containing centrolex-F and Silyum marianum. It is recommended in diets in case of liver dysfunctions as an additional source of biologically active compounds of plant origin.
Ingredients: essential phospholipids – 140 mg, milk thistle – 100 mg, excipients.
Basic properties of active ingredients:
Centrolex-F is a soy lecithin in form of high-concentration phospholipids (the concentration of the latter is 97%) in the same ratio as in soybeans. Phospholipids are the main component of cell membranes and energy-yielding material. They are also called essential phospholipids, what reflects their importance for the body as essential growth and development factors, which are necessary for all the cells, without exception.
One of the best investigated representatives of phospholipids is lecithin (centrolex-F), a substance, which is of essence for human body, basic constructional material for cell membranes. Great amount of lecithin is contained in the brain, liver, nerve fiber membranes. Influence of lecithin on human body is enormous:
It is the most important constructional material for brain (multiple sclerosis, impaired memory and other disturbances of brain activity are usually accompanied by low lecithin level in human body; lecithin deficiency in children results in distractible attention, low learning capability);
It decreases cholesterol level and fatty acids concentration in blood, helps cleaning vascular walls from cholesterol plaques;
It helps absorbing fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E, and K, which are necessary for nutrition of all body cells (lecithin helps body to produce energy; its deficiency is often observed in case of high physical loads).
Phospholipids are of especial importance for the liver, being one of the most important organs in human body, which is a digestive, circulatory and metabolic organ at the same time. Carbohydrate, lipid, water, mineral, pigment, vitamin, hormonal metabolism in the body are closely connected with correct liver functioning. It is responsible for specific, protective and detergent enzymatic and excretory functions of the body, aimed at homeostasis support. Phospholipids deficiency leads to development of fatty liver infiltration, bile synthesis and excretion disorders, increased cell membranes permeability and hepatocytes dysfunction.
The main constituent of milk thistle, being the second component of Essentiafarm® dietary supplement, is a rare biologically active substance – sylimarin. In addition, it contains such microelements, as zinc, copper, selenium, the whole range of fat-soluble vitamins, quercetin, polyunsaturated fatty acids, some amino acids, flavolignans – about 200 biochemical components in total, which determine multiple use of milk thistle. Silymarin (a complex of flavolignans – silibinin etc.) has expressed hepatoprotective effect; it restores liver cells, provides antioxidant, detoxification (neutralizing toxins and poisons) action. Silymarin prevents penetration of poisonous substances to liver cells and decomposes other poisons before they start affecting the liver adversely. It is the only known natural compound, protecting liver cells and restoring its functions as of today.
Due to its complex formulation Essentiafarm® dietary supplement has positive effect on the body, viz.:
Prevents hepatocytes (liver cells) disruption and promotes their regeneration;
Has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties;
Improves bile secretion (choleretic effect);
Promotes lipids decomposition and reduction of cholesterol level in blood;
Neutralizes toxins in case of alcohol, food-borne and drug intoxications;
Improves skin state;
It is recommended for auxiliary therapy in complex treatment of liver diseases of various etiologies.
