Desmodium adscendens and its medicinal virtues
Desmodium adscendens Hepato-protector. Desmodium is above all a plant whose primary objective is to protect the liver, it is a reference in the treatment of viral hepatitis. Desmodium works by reducing the marker of liver damage called transaminases. As soon as the liver is attacked by an external element such as viruses, alcohol or by a drug such as chemotherapy, desmodium proves its therapeutic utility by combating and regenerating liver cells. Numerous medicinal studies have certified the hepato-protective properties of desmodium. Desmodium adscendens is ideally recommended for its antiasthmatic nature, it opposes negative substances which are naturally secreted by the body during the phases of asthma attack. Desmodium will work by relaxing the tissues of the lungs and stopping the pulmonary contractions, this action occurs quickly in one to two minutes. Desmodium adscendens is essential in the prevention of seasonal allergies, in fact, it acts on bronchial muscle contractions in cases of hay fever and all other allergies of the same kind, by its relaxing action of this organ. Desmodium relieves various inflammations due to contractures, as well as muscle cramps and aches while increasing recovery time, it is beneficial in lower back pain, as well as to relieve people with migraine.

Desmodium hepatic protection, regenerates and protects the liver digestive disorders, excess alcohol The liver is an essential and considerable organ due to its metabolic functions in the service of energy and the protection of our body. The liver has a useful function in all the attacks that we make on our body, by the excess food or chemicals that we ingest. It is our liver that will capture, transform, and render harmless the toxins to which we may be exposed by eating, drinking or breathing. It allows the stimulation of our natural defenses and an adaptation to the climatic changes of the different seasons (spring and autumn cure). Because of the importance of this organ, the diseases that affect it are often of concern. These conditions, which can interfere with the proper functioning of our liver, are numerous and diverse. They can be due to exposure to toxins (such as alcohol), viruses (such as the hepatitis C and hepatitis B viruses), genetic abnormalities, metabolic disorders, cancerous diseases, etc. . It is therefore most important to take care of this organ, and to give it considerable help by providing a natural hepatic protector, and especially without harmful side effects for our body. It is above all a wild plant that grows naturally in equatorial Africa. It is primarily a protector of the hepatocyte (The liver contains 300 million hepatocytes endowed with a great capacity for regeneration.) And hepatic. It is therefore important in all situations where our liver is attacked by an exogenous agent such as viruses, drugs, chemotherapy and others, or an endogenous agent, that is to say the autoimmune reaction in particular .
