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.

Dizester

Introduction

It is an era where everything has to happen fast. Fast eating, fast food, it is true in cases of foods and snacks. Indigestion and related problems are on rise. Many ready-to-prepare instant food items have occupied significant space in our food habits. Instead of preparing Diwali and other festival snacks at home, most people prefer to get mass-made commercial sweets and food items generally without quality checks and snack packages containing unwanted preservatives and taste enhancers. Frequency of dinner outing has increased. Every time one goes out, snack-pack pick up by children is common. Healthy snacks likes boiled sprouts are replaced by prepared branded or unbranded snacks. These taste enhancers make us to eat more. It makes more difficult our digestive system to digest them. Keeping this altered lifestyles in mind; Schwabe has developed a new product Dizester to aid digestion. It is equally useful in cases of sluggish digestion and sluggish liver function.

Altered food habits and role of Dizester

Many people don’t have enough time to prepare food at home. This leads to increase in proportion of junk foods. Over the time, people develop the liking for them. This goes on. It becomes a habit, unaware of the consequences. According to reports (Sanjay Kalra et al. 2012) many people in major cities eat and drink frequently unhealthy foods containing trans-fats like chips, burgers, pizzas, french fries, noodles and colas. Many of these have unwanted effects on digestive system resulting in acidity, indigestion, flatulence dyspepsia, gastric & bowel disturbances and related secondary effects as urinary & respiratory troubles, weak immunity and allergic problems. Dizester is developed to overcome these problems.

Dizester covers bloating, deranged digestion, flatulence dyspepsia, colic, flatulent colic, deranged digestion, infantile colic, bilious colic with great accumulation of gas, nervous irritation of the intestinal tract (IBS), diarrhoea, loss of appetite. It improves weak digestive system. Useful in acidity. Pain in stomach area due to gastritis or gastric ulcer. It covers diarrhoea and flatulence. Hot, sore, painful anus especially during pregnancy. Chronic intestinal catarrh, anus red, sore and inflamed especially in case of haemorrhoids.  Its ingredients are known drugs for flatulence and spasmodic contraction of stomach and oesophagus sometimes with reverse peristalsis. Difficulty in bringing the bloating out. Flatulence and regurgitation of liquid. Forcible eructation of gas. Covers obstinate constipation.

Dizester is clinically proven for its antispasmodic and carminative actions and improving appetite. It has soothing effect on digestive tract. It also works as diuretic, anti-inflammatory, and protective against gastric mucosal lesion.
