Because toxic components increasingly find their way into food‚ water‚ and the environment‚ the liver can be a very busy organ for companion animals. Hepagen-Fc provides a unique combination of the beneficial liver herbs milk thistle and curcumin (from turmeric)‚ with antioxidants and important ingredients that support the liver's normal phase I and phase II detoxification processes. Hepagen-Fc contains the curcumin phytosome‚ CurcuVET®‚ a unique‚ well-absorbed curcumin/phosphatidylcholine complex.
Whether taken from food or as a supplement‚ curcumin is generally poorly absorbed into the bloodstream. Indena S.p.A.‚ the worldwide experts in botanical extract technology‚ has uncovered the key to curcumin absorption – phytosome technology. CurcuVET is Indena?s unique curcumin extract that is significantly better absorbed than other curcumin extracts. The beneficial effects of curcumin may be due to the fact that‚ in addition to being a potent antioxidant‚ it can help maintain the animal's normal inflammatory response.
Silybum marianum (milk thistle) contains several flavonolignans‚ the most potent of which is silybin. The antioxidant activity of silybin appears to stabilize hepatocyte membranes‚ neutralize free radicals‚ and maintain the liver's glutathione levels. Hepagen-Fc contains silybin in the form of a well-absorbed phytosome bound to phosphatidylcholine (Siliphos®).
The phosphatidylcholine content of CurcuVET and Siliphos – in addition to enhancing the absorption of these important hepatoprotective flavonoids – also provides liver support in its own right. Phosphatidylcholine is the most significant phospholipid in hepatic cell membranes. It helps regulate the gallbladder and is used extensively in the liver to move fats in and out of cells.
Pyridoxal 5'-phosphate acts as a cofactor for enzymes‚ catalyzes reactions with amino acids‚ and aids in the synthesis of non-essential amino acids. In this formula‚ the active form of vitamin B6‚ pyridoxal 5'-phosphate‚ is provided because healthy liver function is necessary for activation of vitamin B6. Vitamin B12 is required for proper digestion and absorption of food and is provided in one of its active coenzyme forms – methylcobalamin.
Dimethylglycine (DMG) is a derivative of glycine‚ the simplest amino acid. It is a building block for many important substances‚ including methionine and choline. Methionine is an essential sulfur-containing amino acid necessary for phase II detoxification. It helps metabolize fats and is a precursor to cysteine and taurine synthesis. It can be converted to cysteine‚ a component of glutathione‚ an important endogenous antioxidant.
N-acetylcysteine (NAC) is composed of the amino acid cysteine and a sulfhydryl group‚ enabling it to interact with disulfide bonds. NAC serves as a precursor for the synthesis of glutathione.
Inositol is an important lipotropic factor – a substance that helps the liver metabolize fats.

Great Holistic Supplement
Hepagen-Fc was recommended by a few of my MVD forums/seizure forums for my Biewer Yorkshire Terrier who gets seizures and was diagnosed with MVD (Hepatoportal microvascular dysplasia). Been using Hepagen-Fc now for over 2 years and seems to be working as my dogs blood count has not gone up and stabilized. This is a great price for this and very pleased with Pureformulas.com - fast ship as well. Love that Hep contains milk thistle a natural healing herb to help detoxify the liver.
√ I would recommend this item to a friend.
