Legalon-70 capsules Pharmacological group

Drugs used to treat liver diseases. Hepatotropic drugs. ATC code A05B A03.

The ability of silymarin to bind free radicals provides its antioxidant activity. Thus, the pathophysiological process of lipid peroxidation, which is responsible for the destruction of cell membranes, is interrupted or prevented. In damaged hepatocytes, silymarin stimulates protein synthesis and normalizes the metabolism of phospholipids, as a result of which silymarin stabilizes cell membranes and limits or prevents the loss of soluble components (in particular transaminases) of liver cells. Silymarin inhibits the penetration of some hepatotoxic substances into the cell (the poison of the pale toadstool). Silymarin enhances protein synthesis by specifically stimulating RNA polymerase A, an enzyme found in the nucleus. This leads to increased production of ribosomal RNAs, and therefore to stimulation of the synthesis of structural and functional proteins (enzymes). As a result, the regenerative ability is improved and the regeneration of liver cells is accelerated.

Absorption – low and slow (half-absorption period – 2.2 hours), metabolized in the liver by conjugation, half-life – 6.3 hours. It is excreted mainly in the bile in the form of glucuronides and sulfates. Does not accumulate in the body. Intestinal-hepatic circulation is noted.
