Liver cleaning drugs
Any domestic or industrial poisoning primarily damages the cells of the liver - the barrier of the body that helps remove harmful compounds from the human body. Liver cells capture and process not only nutrients entering the body through food, but also toxic products. This can lead to damage and accumulation of slags in them. Therefore, it is necessary to periodically purge the liver with drugs or traditional methods.
Let's look at this article, when it is necessary to clean the liver, which drugs are used for this, the mechanisms of their action. And also recall the basic rules for such cleaning.
What is the liver cleaning done for?
The liver filters the blood of the body and cleanses it from harmful substances. This is the detoxification function of the liver. Neutralized toxic substances are excreted with bile. When the outflow of bile is disturbed, it becomes stagnant, which leads to inflammation of the gallbladder and the deposition of toxins, metabolic products in hepatocytes (liver cells).
Cleaning should be carried out in conjunction with the cleaning of the biliary tract, intestines. This helps prevent the re-absorption of toxins into the blood. Used for cleaning drugs, the action of which provides:
- hepatocyte protection;
- restoration of damaged hepatocytes;
- stimulation of bile formation;
- improved bile excretion;
- removal of toxins from the intestines.
To do this, use drugs to clean the liver, bile ducts and intestines:
- hepatoprotectors (Essentiale Forte, Antral, Karsil, Berlition);
- detoxification drugs (sodium thiosulfate);
- cholagogue preparations (“Kholosas”, “Sorbitol”, “Bonjigar”);
- drugs that remove toxins from the intestines (Magnesia, activated carbon);
- complex drugs ("Darsil", "Gepabene", "Galstena", "Gepatsept").
Many complex preparations contain plant extracts and have choleretic and hepatoprotective effects. Such biological additives as Ovesol help to clear the liver. A good effect when cleaning the liver gives a medical procedure - tubage.
How to cleanse the liver drugs
Hepatoprotectors are not easy preparations for cleaning the liver, they have a number of properties that allow to improve the detoxification function of cells, which is achieved by:

- increase the protective function of the cell membrane;
- repair damaged cells;
- removal of toxic substances from them.
Then, with bile, slags enter the intestine and are naturally eliminated from the body.
Drugs that enhance the choleretic effect, help to eliminate toxins along the biliary tract into the intestine. They do not purify the hepatocytes, therefore, to cleanse the liver, they should be taken only against the background of hepatoprotectors, as well as drugs to cleanse the intestines.
Many of these drugs contain natural substances that help improve the metabolic processes in the liver and restore the cell membrane of hepatocytes, which protects them from toxins. If the hepatocytes have already died, the hepatoprotectors cannot recover them. The course of treatment and the dose of the drug is selected by the doctor. You need to strictly adhere to the dosage.

The drug of plant origin, its action is based on the improvement of fat and carbohydrate metabolism in hepatocytes, it also normalizes the level of blood cholesterol.
The drug not only cleans the liver and removes toxins from its cells, but also stimulates the restoration and renewal of hepatocytes, has a choleretic effect.
Hepatoprotective effects also have drugs, which include essential amino acids for the recovery of the liver (methionine, ornithine), vitamin E, vitamins of group B, the combined drug "Aevit" (overdose is possible - take only as directed by a doctor). They should be used in conjunction with other hepatoprotectors, this will speed up the recovery of hepatocytes.
