Heparsan

Properties and actions:

Heparsan has an antioxidant activity as it contains curcumin which protects the liver against exogenous toxins. Curcumin also proved, in studies, to suppress hepatic stellate cells and decrease fibrosis which may delay fibrosis in chronic liver diseases.
Heparsan has an anti-inflammatory activity due to isoquinoline alkaloids in chelidonium; its curcumin content inhibits prostaglandins while the volatile oils suppress acute edema by inhibition of hyaluronidase enzyme.
Heparsan has a choleretic effect, which stimulates production of bile and pancreatic digestive enzymes that improves dyspepsia. It also has a cholecystokinetic effect.
The alkaloids in chelidonium and curcumin in curcuma relieve the spasm and stimulate the under-active gallbladder, that help in biliary dyskinesia, cholecystitis, and gallstones.
