Alleviates any general fluids dyscrasia (abnormal or pathological condition) within the blood vessels, tissue-systems or mucous membranes that leads to various degenerative conditions associated with any addictive tendencies towards alcohol, caffeine, chemicals, drugs or food, and eliminates any form of cachexia (state of malnourishment and general debility) within the blood vessels, tissue-systems or mucous membranes throughout the entire organism in order to provide increased protection against any nutritional deficiencies or insufficiency associated with the excessive use of synthetic chemicals, recreational drugs or alcoholic beverages; accelerates extremely significant protective activity against any liver damage caused by various toxic substances (such as alcohol, chemical prescription drugs, recreational narcotics or food additives) by inhibiting the harmful effects of these factors, and stabilizes the body's alcohol levels in those conditions involving alcoholism and alcoholic addictions or dependency; reduces any short-term toxicity or long-term degenerative effects upon the liver from the excessive intake of alcohol or alcoholic beverages, and normalizes the ability of the liver to produce phospholipids (including cholesterols) in recovering alcoholics; prevents any liver damage associated with the use of psychopharmacologic drugs, and provides supportive treatment for any chronic inflammatory liver disorders or cirrhosis of the liver (due to the excessive intake of alcoholic beverages); removes any toxic metabolic liver damage (such as chemical- or alcohol-induced fatty degeneration of the liver), due to the presence of silymarin; inhibits the primary absorption of various toxins, and prevents their re-absorption (due to enterohepatic circulation); inhibits various toxic poisons from penetrating through the cellular membranes or into the interior of the cell by competing with them for the same site of occupancy, thereby preventing them from entering or overcoming the nucleus of the cell itself; enhances the detoxification process by increasing the glutathione levels in the liver in order to improve its capability to neutralize a wide range of hormones, drugs and chemicals, and increases the redox state and total glutathione content of the liver, stomach and intestines; cleanses, stabilizes and repairs the cellular membranes of the liver while improving its overall functional capabilities, due to the presence of flavonoid-like compounds (flavanolignins) that are collectively referred to as "silymarin"; possesses flavanolignins (silybin, silydianin, silychristin, apigenin and silybonol) that bind themselves to the hepatocyte membranes in the liver cell in order to protect them from any injury or damage by chemical residues, drug deposits or endogenous toxins, and enhances the ability of the liver cells to produce certain enzymes that are vital to the proper functioning of the liver by stimulating increased protein synthesis in order to regenerate liver tissue and produce healthy new liver cells; accelerates the process of cellular regeneration of liver tissue by enhancing the activity of certain compounds in the nucleus of the cell in order to stimulate RNA factors (specifically, nuclear polymerase A activity), thereby activating the ribosomal RNA and the subsequent increased protein production and synthesis within the cell in order to build and nourish healthy new cells; displays biocatalytic activity in order to enhance greater assimilation of those essential nutrients that are necessary for the increased production of energy and vitality, thereby accelerating certain rejuvenative processes associated with the repair of any damaged blood vessels, tissue-systems or mucous membranes throughout the entire organism; acts as a biocatalyst in order to accelerate and accentuate the transport of all the other herbal ingredients throughout the entire organism to specific parts of the body (especially the head region), and exhibits powerful antioxidant effects in order to enhance the transport of additional oxygen directly into the cells and tissue-systems throughout the brain and cerebro-spinal centers; acts as a cell proliferant in order to stimulate increased cellular mitosis (cell division and reproduction) in an adequate nutritional environment, as well as to accelerate the healing processes by promoting increased granulation and greater resolution during the repair of any damaged blood vessels, tissue-systems or mucous membranes; throughout the entire organism; displays cell proliferant activity in order to inhibit the normal aging process within the cells or tissue-systems, thereby extending the overall lifespan of the entire organism; exhibits anabolic activity in order to accelerate the production of DNA and RNA (which enhances the production of proteins in the form of antibodies), while increasing protein and lipid synthesis in the bone marrow and DNA/RNA content in the adrenals and lymph nodes (along with increased body weight and enhanced re-synthesis of glycogen and high-energy phosphate compounds); demonstrates powerful adaptogenic (balancing and strengthening) activity upon the endocrine glands, immune system, and both the central and peripheral nervous systems, thereby increasing non-specific resistance towards any adverse influences or stressful conditions associated with the excessive abuse of various addictive substances (such as alcohol, caffeine, synthetic drugs, narcotics and other toxic chemicals); exhibits immuno-potentiating and immuno-stimulatory effects in order to enhance greater long-term immune potential and overall non-specific systemic immunity (or immune cell activity) and increased immune response (by activating the body's natural defense mechanisms), particularly in relation to the repair and restoration of any damaged or congested blood vessels, tissue-systems or mucous membranes throughout the entire organism; displays adaptogenic (balancing and strengthening) activity in order to increase the overall resistance of an organism towards any adverse influences or stressful conditions (whether they be physical, chemical or biological in nature), especially upon the glandular, immune and both the central (cerebro-spinal centers) and peripheral nervous systems; acts as a secretolytic stimulant in order to promote increased gastric, pancreatic or intestinal secretory and motor activity, and enhances greater peripheral circulation (due to its antioxidant activity); exhibits significant antioxidant effects in order to provide greater oxygen-transport capabilities throughout the bloodstream, as well as enhance the transport of additional oxygen directly into the cells and tissue-systems throughout the entire organism; acts as a circulatory stimulant by increasing the blood flows through the arteries and blood vessels in order to enhance greater nutrient transport, absorption and utilization, thereby accelerating the healing processes associated with the repair of any damaged mucous membranes or tissue-systems; acts as an effective nutritive and rejuvenative tonic during convalescence (due to the presence of rich sources of calcium, chromium, iron, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, protein, selenium, zinc, and vitamins A and B12) in order to enrich, nourish and replenish any nutritional deficiencies or insufficiency within the cells or tissues throughout the mucous membranes, which leads to the development of various degenerative conditions associated with addictive behavioral patterns or substance abuse problems; demonstrates significant rejuvenative and restorative properties upon the basic plasma tissue-systems throughout the entire organism, thereby enhancing the production of vital bodily fluids while providing greater enrichment through increased assimilation of the various organic mineral salts; accelerates the recuperative processes that are essential in order to overcome any chronic debilitating or degenerative diseases or illnesses, while facilitating greater recovery response during convalescence in order to regain optimal health and well-being; activates the bodily processes of detoxification and elimination in order to cleanse and purify the bloodstream and tissue-systems, and increases the secretion and elimination of urine in order to provide further support to the inner cleansing process; displays alterative activity in order to correct any disordered bodily function, thereby activating increased alterations in both metabolic and tissue functions as a defensive measure against the onset of acute or chronic disease; exhibits restorative effects in order to regain increased vigor or vitality and greater strength, while enhancing normal tissue and metabolic functional capabilities; demonstrates alterative and restorative properties in order to re-establish healthy systemic functional capabilities, as well as to establish greater vascular tone throughout the entire organism (due to its ability to stimulate increased secretory flows); exhibits alterative effects in order to stimulate the anabolic growth processes, thereby enhancing the repair of any degenerated, deteriorated and debilitated cells or tissues (while promoting the elimination of any catabolic waste materials); displays tonifying effects in order to permanently enhance the overall energy-levels throughout the entire organism, without adversely affecting the functional capabilities of any particular organ or system.
