Olimp Labs Hepaplus is a dietary supplement that effectively promotes the liver health, its proper functioning as well as supporting the digestion of food and the excretion of unnecessary metabolic products. This supplement contains three groups of ingredients - artichoke extract, L-ornithine aspartate and B group vitamins.
Hepatic protection and the comprehensive support of the liver are extremely important because the organ is exposed to many factors that interfere with its functioning. These include, among others, caffeine, drugs, alcohol or even fatty foods. We are not always able to avoid potentially harmful factors, but when providing liver with additional protection, we will be able to enjoy our health for longer.
Artichoke extract (Cynara scolymus) is a natural extract from a plant originating from the Mediterranean. This extract is standardized for a content of 5% cynarin - the most valuable health-promoting substance contained in the artichoke.
Cynarin is a compound that focuses on the functioning of the liver, but it can also positively affect some of the blood parameters. It has hepatoprotective effects and supports the regeneration of the liver cells, which is why it is often a component of medicines used in the cirrhosis of this organ. In addition, it also stimulates the production and secretion of bile, which is responsible for the emulsification of fats, what greatly facilitates and accelerates their digestion.
Cynarin helps in the disposal of toxins that reach the liver and shows a mild diuretic effect, which speeds up the removal of harmful metabolites from the body. In addition, this compound causes a reduction in a total blood cholesterol. Another component present in this extract is inulin, which has a fiber-like effect - it causes a feeling of fullness, thus promoting slimming. It also regulates the level of glucose in the blood.
L-ornithine aspartate is a combination of two amino acids - aspartic acid and ornithine. Ornithine accelerates the synthesis of harmful urea in the urea cycle that takes place in the liver. Thanks to this, it facilitates more efficient hepatocyte regeneration and has a beneficial effect on the metabolism of macronutrients supplied with food. In addition, L-ornithine aspartate also participates in the synthesis of glutamine, which is formed as a result of binding of urea by aspartate and in this way can be safely transported in the body without damaging the surrounding tissues.
Vitamin B1 (thiamine) in the cell participates in the transformation of keto acids as a coenzyme of thiamine pyrophosphate, which indirectly allows the metabolism of carbohydrates, which are the source of energy in the form of ATP. It also intensifies the action of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine and enhances the secretion of follicle-stimulating and luteinizing hormone, which enable normal function of testes and ovaries. Large deficiencies of this vitamin are the cause of disorders of the nervous, circulatory and digestive systems.
Vitamin B2 (riboflavin) is an important compound that allows oxidation and reduction reactions and supports the proper functioning of the nervous system. Its presence also determines health of the organ of sight and the proper functioning of mucous membranes and skin.
Vitamin B3 (niacin) present in this preparation as a nicotinamide plays a key role in the transformation of carbohydrates, amino acids and fatty acids. It stimulates the proliferation of red blood cells and inhibits the synthesis of bad cholesterol (VLDL) in the liver while contributing to an increase in its good variation (HDL).
Vitamin B5 (pantothenic acid), or actually calcium D-pantothenate is another vitamin involved in the transformation of proteins, fats and carbohydrates, as well as the synthesis of hormones. It supports the action of almost all systems in the body, and also allows the production of neurotransmitters and energy in cells. Its deficiency is may lead to the deterioration of cognitive functions - people with too low levels of this vitamin suffer from problems with learning, concentration and memory.
Vitamin B6, in this case pyridoxine hydrochloride is a substance that improves the body's immune system and is often used to relieve the symptoms of premenstrual syndrome or carpal tunnel syndrome and to treat kidney diseases; it also prevents the formation of stones in the urinary tract. It is involved in the regulation of blood pressure and the production of biologically important compounds - enzymes, hormones and hemoglobin.
In summary, Olimp Labs Hepaplus is a dietary supplement aimed at supporting the functioning of the liver. It contains active ingredients with hepatoprotective and detoxifying properties. The product facilitates the removal of unnecessary metabolic products from the body. The substances contained in this preparation have a positive effect on the lipid profile, especially on the concentration of bad and good cholesterol. This product also contains a set of vitamins from group B, which positively affect the whole body, preventing frequent deficiencies and supporting its operation in a comprehensive way.
Artichoke extract has cholagogic and cholepoietic effects. The preparation is recommended to people who are prone to the effects of harmful substances and among others in case of arteriosclerosis, fat metabolism disorders, inflammations of gallbladder and bile ducts. The preparation may be combined with the Silybum marianum extract to increase its effects.

Artichoke extract - an extract of Mediterranean perennial, which is a rich source of active compounds, such as chlorogenic acid (eg. cynarine), sesquiterpenes (eg. cynaropicrin), flavonoids and glycosides. Artichoke extract is widely used in medicine: a shielding action for liver, stabilizing cell membranes, is antioxidant, inhibiting oxidation of LDL cholesterol (the so-called bad cholesterol). In the etching process, not only protects the gastrointestinal tract itself, but by increasing the secretion of digestive juices, beneficial effect on the assimilation of nutrients. It has a soothing effect on the digestive system. It has a slight potential diuretic.
Extract of artichoke is an extract used in health-enhancing supplements, supporting digestion, protecting the liver and lowering LDL cholesterol. It is often combined with other plant extracts, and aspartate-I-ornithine.
Dosage: 600-1000 mg per day.
L-aspartate L-ornithine (salt of the amino acids L-ornithine and L-aspartic acid), which is involved in the detoxification of ammonia and affecting regeneration of liver cells. L-aspartic acid is involved directly or synthetics in assisting in the physiological processes: energy conversion, synthesis of purines and urea enhances the synthesis of nitric oxide. L-ornithine, endogenous non-protein amino acid which is a precursor of arginine. Mediates in the metabolic cycle of urea synthesis from ammonia and nitrogen excretion. It is a citrulline acceptor. Synthesizes polyamines regenerating the liver. Part of the preparations for health, used in supplementation in the form of no-boosters. Available at the www.muscle-zone.pl
Dosage: varied from a few dozen mg to a few g / 24h
Vitamin B1 (thiamin, vitamin B) improves mental alertness and strengthens the nervous system ensuring the proper functioning of the brain. It improves cardiac and muscular system. It is suportive in the treatment of shingles. Involved in the metabolism of carbohydrates and fats. Natural source of vitamin B1 are brown bread, yeast, eggs, raw vegetables, meat, milk, legumes, cheese.
Vitamin B1 deficiency hinders the processes of decomposition of sugars (catabolism), causes a loss of appetite and disorders in the functioning of the digestive tract, can cause polyneuritis and disease beriberi.
Dosage: Recommended daily intake is 1-2 mg.
Thiamine hydrochloride - a highly bioavailable form of thiamine, also called vitamin B1. Due to an important role that it plays in carbohydrate metabolism, its increased supply is recommended to people with excessively high concentration of sugar in blood. It facilitates their processing in the organism and supports the activities that aim at restoring optimal glycemia. An important role in the metabolism of nutrients is also played by an integral component of carboxylase coenzyme - thiamine pyrophosphate.
Some source suggest the effectiveness of thiamine in relation to the health of the cardiovascular system, apart from decreasing glucose level in blood, it is also reflected in optimization of blood pressure. Although this aspect of effectiveness of vitamin B1 requires further research, it is another argument demonstrating special needs of taking care of proper thiamine supply by people from the risk group of the circulatory system diseases.
Among people who are especially prone to vitamin B1 deficiencies there are also people fighting with excess weight and frequently drinking alcohol.
Vitamin B2 (riboflavin) is soluble in liquids, is involved in the metabolism of proteins, fats and carbohydrates. Required for growth of the organism. Takes part in the production of erythrocytes (red blood cells). It is located in natural foods, such as yeast, meat (especially liver, kidney, heart), milk, fish and green leafy vegetables.
A deficiency of vitamin B2 inhibits the growth, diseases of the mouth, loss and greasy hair, seborrhea and stratification of nails. Increases skin roughness and susceptibility to acne and oily skin.
Dosage: 1-2 mg per day.
Vitamin B3 (vitamin PP, niacin, nicotinic acid, nicotinamide) is niacinamide niacin. It is used in interaction with vitamins B1, B2 and B6 in the synthesis of hormones during lactation. It provides proper functioning of the brain and nervous system. It is helpful in inflammatory conditions of the skin. Required for synthesis of sex hormone, estrogen, testosterone, cortisone, and insulin. It does not lose its properties in the manufacturing and storage. The source of acquiring vitamins PP are both products of animal origin (the lean meat, eggs, fish) and vegetable origin (dates, figs, hazelnuts, plums).
Dosage: 2-12 mg / day for children, 14 mg / day for women, 16 mg / day for men and 17-18 mg / day for pregnant or nursing women.
Nicotinic acid amide – also known as nicotinamide, belongs to a group of compounds referred to as vitamin B3, along with nicotinic acid and inositol hexanicotinate. It exerts its main biological activity as a precursor to two key coenzymes for efficient energy metabolism of the body: nicotinamide adenine dinucletodide and nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate. They are responsible for carrying hydrogen and electrons in the respiratory chain and thus facilitate efficient energy production by the human body.
Nicotinamide supplementation is recommended for active persons not only because of its ability to promote the body’s energy efficiency. It has also a beneficial impact on mind, increases tolerance to stressors and may reduce symptoms of depression. It is pointed out that niacin supplementation correlates positively with sleep quality.
Unlike nicotinic acid, nicotinamide does not show the ability to produce a “flush effect”, namely redness in the face caused by taking large doses of niacin. It has been also shown to influence partly cardiovascular function.
Nicotinamide is also indicated to influence beneficially the absorption of other B vitamins and vitamin D. This compound should be taken with caution by diabetics because it can increase the body’s demand for insulin.
Vitamin B5 (calcium pantothenate, pantothenic acid, pantotenol) is part of a complex of B vitamins affects the development of the central nervous system, is the building substance of cells. In the body synthesized by the intestinal bacteria. It occurs in animal products (meat, kidneys, liver) and plants (wheat germ, wheat bran, nuts, grains, green vegetables). Prevents fatigue and excessive stress, accelerates the healing of cuts and wounds, acts as a stimulant for the side effects of the use of antibiotics. Deficiency causes skin changes, and difficulty in blood clotting.
Calcium (element chem. symbol Ca, atomic no. 20, the group of alkaline earth metals) is the basic building substance of bones and teeth, in which stored is 99% of the element, in the form of hydroxylapatite. When building bones and teeth, phosphorus is very important in the right proportion. It is a base-forming element and activator of many enzymes (ATPase) necessary to release the energy of ATP. It has a significant effect on blood clotting and regulates blood pressure and neuromuscular conductivity. Thanks to the reduced permeability of cell membranes, it soothes the symptoms of food allergies. Calcium is actively involved in the metabolism of iron interacts with vitamins A, C and D and phosphorus, magnesium. Natural source of calcium are animal products (dairy products, sardines, salmon, sprats eaten with bones) and plant products (nuts, soybeans, sunflower seeds). Absorption takes place in the small intestine (less in the colon), it has an effect on the level of lactose, insoluble fibre, organic acids, alkalinity (low pH). The best absorption have organic compounds (lactates, amino acid chelates etc.). Obstructing the absorption of calcium is caused by: phytic acid and oxalic acid as well as excess fat. Scientific studies have confirmed that the combination of calcium, magnesium, boron and vitamin D in dose 3 mg / 24h effectively prevent osteoporosis. Supplements on the market are both mono-preparation supplements (enriched with vitamin D3) and multi-component supplements, available at www.muscle-zone.pl.
Calcium deficiency disorders manifested in the construction of the bones (osteoporosis) and iron metabolism. The symptoms are: rickets, cramps and muscle tremor, osteoporosis.
Excess resulting from an overdose of calcium supplements containing vitamin D3 for children and adults overdose of calcium (hypercalcemia). Symptoms of hypercalcemia are: lack of appetite, vomiting and constipation.
The dosage administered in various publications are inconsistent: 800 - 1000 mg / 24 h (100 - 500 mg / 24h)
Vitamin B6 (pyridoxine, pyridoxal, pyridoxamine) is soluble in the liquid. It participates in the metabolism of proteins, fats and carbohydrates. By reducing the amount of fat in the blood do not enable deposition of the body. It helps the absorption of magnesium and vitamin B12 (cobalamin). It works on the muscle antispasmodic and anti-inflammatory pain in the joints. It acts anti. It provides efficient operation of the brain. It increases energy increasing vigor of a man. The demand for vitamin B6 increases during pregnancy and breast-feeding infants. The natural product is: yeast, eggs, wheat germ, meat (liver), wheat bran, nuts, peanuts peanuts, soybeans. There is a hypothesis that can be synthesized by intestinal bacteria.
Deficiency of vitamin B6 causes abnormal metabolism of proteins, decrease in lymphocytes in the blood, causes a feeling of lethargy and fatigue intensifies.
Dosage: 1.5-2.5 mg daily (increased demand during pregnancy and lactation).
What is pyridoxine hydrochloride?
Pyridoxine hydrochloride is a basic, the most commonly used form of vitamin B6 in supplements and fortified foods. It is a vitamin soluble in water. It converts to the active form of the vitamin - pyridoxal phosphate.
Vitamin B6 is a cofactor in many enzymatic reactions. It takes part in the production of many neurotransmitters, such as GABA, serotonin and catecholamines and it takes part in the metabolism of amino acids, carbohydrates and lipids. It is an important factor for the process of the creation of red cells and hemoglobin and its deficit may be one of the factors causing anemia. This vitamin contributes to maintaining proper energy metabolism and is important for maintaining well-being and good psychological condition. Its presence supports the breakdown of pro-inflammatory homocysteine to cysteine and further metabolites, thanks to which it may decrease the risk of atherosclerosis and cardiological incidents.
Pyridoxine hydrochloride may be found in many vitamin B complexes and vitamin-mineral preparations available in the offer of muscle-zone.pl.
