Desmodium is well known in Africa and Latin America where it has been used for hundreds of years in traditional medicine. Its properties on the liver are surprising, in fact, desmodium has great capacities to reduce the liver’s states of aggression, which gives it major properties for its protection. Desmodium contains saponosides that have an action on the regulation of liver function, so it is ideal for detoxification or to promote elimination and digestion processes.
Powerful protector of the hepatocyte, liver cell, Desmodium or Manayupa as it is called in Peru will therefore be useful in all situations where the liver is attacked (virus, medication, chemotherapy…)
Desmodium regenerates liver cells. This major organ is involved in various vital functions: digestion, hormonal regulation, fat metabolism. It is also the body’s purification plant: it degrades and evacuates toxic substances (natural waste, medicines, alcohol, heavy metals)
it has also been used for a very long time as a symptomatic treatment for asthma. By acting on the contraction of the respiratory muscles, it also has anti-allergic effects since allergens can be at the origin of these respiratory tract disorders.
Desmodium can also be combined with other treatments in the aftermath of viral hepatitis, toxic hepatitis (intoxication, chemotherapy, etc.), liver deficiencies and dysfunctions (linked to alcohol, for example)
