Alpha™- Liv Drops

Alpha – Liv Drops Due to high demand from the market, for a formulation in drops for the liver, apart from the syrup already available in the market, Schwabe India developed this product. Introduction The liver plays a key role in metabolism. It has anabolic and catabolic, exocrine and endocrine functions. The liver is a blood reservoir, filter and store of different substances (e.g. glycogen, vitamins). It is the site of serum protein (e.g. albumin, prothrombin, fibrinogen) and enzyme synthesis. Metabolic processes (e.g. bilirubin, hormone, carbohydrate and lipid turnover) and the removal of toxic products are important liver functions. 1 Hepatotoxins (e.g. alcohol, tetracycline, acetaminophen, fungal toxins, and anabolic steroids) can cause specific damage to liver cells. Toxic hepatitis may be clinically silent or severe enough to lead to the rapid development of hepatic failure. Clinical features include hepatomegaly, enzyme abnormalities, fever, abdominal pain, anorexia, nausea, vomiting and weight loss. In patients with underlying cirrhosis, manifestations of portal hypertension may predominate. Aversion to fatty food, abdominal discomfort, nausea and vomiting after meals may be symptoms of 2 cholelithiasis. Jaundice results from accumulation of bilirubin. It has non-hepatic as well as hepatic causes. Hyperbilirubinaemia may be due to abnormalities in the 3 formation, transport, metabolism or excretion of bilirubin. TM Alpha -Liv Drops aids recovery and normalisation of liver functions. Severe liver disease needs specialised treatment. Indications: Slow liver functions, fatty liver, and for supportive treatment of hepatocellular jaundice and toxic liver damage.

Field Emission Scanning Electron Microscopic (FESEM) and Energy Dispersive Spectroscopic (EDS) Studies of Centesimal Scale Potencies of the Homoeopathic Drug   Lycopodium clavatum

Homoeopathic medicines are prepared by pharmacological method of potentisation or trituration in any of three scales viz. decimal, centesimal and 50 millesimal. In each process original quantity is divided by 10, 100, and 50,000 in each step respectively. Conventional medicine is generally available in concentration of 10-6M (equivalent to 6x/3C in homoeopathy) micro molar to 10-9M nanomolar (9x/4.5C in homoeopathy). So, in high homoeopathic dilution single molecule of the source substance is said to be theoretically impossible, however it has biological action on the individual. Hence researcher of this paper had sought to examine the potential physical properties of a homoeopathic medicine Lycopodium clavatum.

With the help of Field Emission Scanning Electron Microscopy (FESEM) and Energy Dispersive Spectroscopy (EDS), potency of Lycopodium clavatum was studied for particle and their elementary composition.

Result showed that nanoparticle were present in all the potencies tested. Carbon and oxygen were present in the entire sample particle. The present study confirms the presence of nanoparticle in common homoeopathic medicine Lycopodium clavatum.

Earlier a study by IIT-Bombay had showed that highly diluted homoeopathic remedies made from metals still contain measurable amounts of the starting material, even at extreme dilutions of 1 part in 10 raised to 400.
