Herbal Medicinal Uses
St Marys Thistle in particulars liver-protecting and liver-repairing. Supports liver cells as well as a Liver detoxification. It has functions are due to two main actions: antioxidant and protein-restoring activities. Silymarin also stimulates protein synthesis so that new liver cells can grow and damaged liver cells can be replaced. Milk Thistle extract improves liver dysfunction in patients with acute and chronic hepatitis A, B and C, chronic alcoholic liver disease and fatty liver caused by chemical toxin damage. Often used for Liver and gallbladder disease, including hepatitis, cirrhosis, gallstones and fatty liver.
Turmeric is a liver protector, treats liver congestion, jaundice, and is often used to treat chronic Hepatitis. Turmeric increases the production of bile and improves gallbladder function; its effects are normalizing, mild and long-lasting. Taken in medicinal doses, it can be used to help flush the gallbladder of stones and sediment.
We have also added the Liver detox and regeneration homeopathic combination formula.
However, the herbal tonic "HAMPL Liver Tonic 88" is more suitable for canines and equines. i.e. must be diluted in food and given orally.

Herbal Medicinal Uses
St Marys Thistle herb - in particulars liver-protecting and liver-repairing. Supports liver cells as well as a Liver detoxification. It has functions are due to two main actions: antioxidant and protein-restoring activities. Silymarin also stimulates protein synthesis so that new liver cells can grow and damaged liver cells can be replaced. Milk Thistle extract improves liver dysfunction in patients with acute and chronic hepatitis A, B and C, chronic alcoholic liver disease and fatty liver caused by chemical toxin damage. Often used for Liver and gallbladder disease, including hepatitis, cirrhosis, gallstones and fatty liver.
Tumeric herb - is a liver protector, treats liver congestion, jaundice, and is often used to treat chronic Hepatitis. Turmeric increases the production of bile and improves gall bladder function; its effects are normalizing, mild and long-lasting. Taken in medicinal doses, it can be used to help flush the gall bladder of stones and sediment.
Danelion Root - The health benefits of dandelion include relief from liver disorders, diabetes, urinary disorders, acne, jaundice, cancer and anemia. E.g Cancer: Dandelions are high in antioxidants, such as vitamin-C and Luteolin, which reduce the free radicals (major cancer-causing agents) in the body, thereby reducing the risk of cancer. It also detoxifies the body, which further helps protect from the development of tumors and various cancers. Luteolin actually poisons essential components of cancer cells when it binds to them, rendering them in effective and unable to reproduce. This characteristic has been demonstrated most notably with prostate cancer, although there are other studies being done.
Jaundice: Jaundice is primarily a disorder of the liver in which the organ starts overproducing bile, which ultimately enters the bloodstream and wreaks havoc on the body’s metabolism. The excess bile is also reflected through color of the skin, and eyes, which typically develop a yellow tint. The treatment of jaundice includes three main steps. First, you need to curb the production of bile. Second, you must remove the excess bile from the body, and third, you have to fight the underlying viral infection. Dandelions are very helpful in all of these steps. It promotes liver health and regulates bile production.
Astragalus herb - As an immune system builder and strengthener, this herb is a deep tonic that replenishes bone marrow. Anti-fungal / diuretic / expels toxins / pus / aids adrenal. One of the best known herbs used in Chinese medicine, astragalus strengthens the digestion and stimulates the immune system. It also aids adrenal gland function, acts as a diuretic and dilates blood vessels. Astragalus can be used to boost the immune system in people who frequently suffer from infections such as colds. It can also be used in convalescence and to aid in cancer treatment and recovery from chemotherapy.
Globe Artichoke herb - are particularly high in antioxidants, in the form of vitamin C and phytonutrients, which are thought to protect cells against the attack of free radicals.
Cynarin and Silyamrin - The two major phytonutrients found in Globe Artichokes are Cynarin and Silymarin. These are of particular interest for their ability to lower cholesterol, protect and support liver function, increase bile production and prevent gallstones. Standardized supplements of Globe Artichoke extract with stated minimum amounts of active ingredients are available in tablets, capsules, gels and liquids. The notable side-effect of everything tasting sweet after eating an artichoke can be attributed to Cynarin. Studies suggest that Silymarin, which is also found in Milk Thistle, may also help control blood sugar in type II diabetics.
Lowers cholesterol - High cholesterol and triglyceride levels, particularly of the small particle LDL form of cholesterol, are strongly associated with heart disease. Globe Artichoke consumption has been linked to lowering cholesterol and triglycerides in the bloodstream and increasing the relative level of high density lipoprotein (HDL), also known as the "good" cholesterol. The liver makes bile acids from cholesterol and stores them in the gallbladder. By increasing the production of bile acids, Artichoke extract helps the liver reduce the amount of cholesterol in the bloodstream.
Protects liver - The ancient Romans prescribed Globe Artichokes to alleviate hangover symptoms, but a randomized study found Artichoke extract fairly ineffective against alcohol-induced hangovers. However, recent studies have shown that Silibinin, the active component of Silymarin, protects the liver from the poison found in the death cap mushroom (Amanita phalloides) and from carbon tetrachloride toxicity. Globe Artichokes have a mild diuretic effect that may assist in lowering blood pressure for some people.
The cynarin contained in an Artichoke increases bile production, which in turn helps the body digest fats more efficiently and receive greater benefit from the fat-soluble vitamins. Bile works by emulsifying the fats consumed, rendering them more easily absorbed and processed by the small intestine.
Most gallstones are created when high concentrations of cholesterol in the gallbladder crystallize.
Gallbladder or biliary disease is diagnosed when gallstones cause pain by stretching or blocking the bile duct. People who have had gallstone symptoms in the past should be aware that increasing bile production can push existing stones into the bile duct.
Studies indicate that Artichoke Leaf extract can reduce the symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and functional dyspepsia, activity that may be related to improved fat digestion.
Schisandra herb - Lowers Inflammation, increases hepatic glutathione levels and glutathione reductase activities, down regulates inflammatory cytokines, activates the eNOS pathway, inhibits apoptosis (death of harmful cells), and enhances cell proliferation. Adaptogenic herbs and superfoods have been used for thousands of years to naturally raise the body’s resistance to environmental stress, anxiety, toxin exposure, emotional trauma, mental fatigue and mental illnesses. Because schisandra helps nurture the adrenal glands and turns down an overproduction of “stress hormones” like cortisol, it’s linked with better mental capabilities, physical endurance and metabolic health. Improves Liver Function & Digestive Health.
A 2010 study published in the International Journal of Clinical Pharmacology and Therapeutics found that schisandra can even benefit patients following a liver transplant, since it increases production of a compound called Tcrolimus (Tac), which prevents the body’s rejection of a new liver following liver transplantation. Blood concentrations of Tac significantly increased in liver transplant patients after receiving schisandra sphenanthera extract (SchE). The average increase in the mean concentration of Tac in the blood was 339 percent for the group receiving higher doses of SchE and 262 percent for the group receiving lower a dose. Tac-associated side effects, such as diarrhea and indigestion, also decreased significantly in all patients as liver function improved.
