HEPUDRAIN is a dietary supplement that provides, by means of the six active ingredients in a fully natural way for an efficient detoxification of the liver.
Nowadays, our body is constantly inundated by toxins, mainly originating from our daily food (pesticides, preservatives, artificial flavors, fragrances and dyes), but also from medication and environmental pollution.
Therefore our body needs to detoxify permanently from these toxins. Detoxification occurs mainly in the liver. In case of a high toxic load and/or a liver disorder, an overload of the liver may concur resulting in a insufficient detoxifying effect of the liver. Often, this leads to a reduced quality of life with momentary complaints such as fatigue, headache, abdominal discomfort, constipation, nausea, a metallic taste, skin complaints and itching.
HEPUDRAIN contains as active ingredients milk thistle,artichoke, boldo, choline, turmeric and N-acetyl-cysteine. The synergistic effect of these six active ingredients ensures an detoxification effect acting at phase 1 and phase 2 of the detoxification of the liver.
