Desmodium is well known in Africa and Latin America where it has been used for centuries in traditional medicine. Its properties on the liver are surprising. Indeed, desmodium has great capacities to reduce the states of aggression of the liver, which gives it essential properties for its protection. Desmodium contains saponosides that act on the regulation of liver function.
A powerful protector of the hepatocyte, liver cell, Desmodium or Manayupa, as it is called in Peru, will therefore be useful in all situations where the liver is attacked (viruses, drugs, chemotherapy…)
Desmodium regenerates the liver cells. This major organ is involved in various vital functions: digestion, hormonal regulation, fat metabolism. It is also the body’s purification plant: it degrades and removes toxic substances (natural waste, medicines, alcohol, heavy metals)
It has also been used for a very long time as a symptomatic treatment for asthma. By acting on the contraction of the respiratory muscles, it also has anti-allergic effects because allergens can cause these respiratory tract disorders.
Desmodium can also be associated with other treatments after viral hepatitis, toxic hepatitis (intoxication, chemotherapy, etc.), liver failure and dysfunctions (alcohol-related, for example).
