MODE OF ACTION OF MAIN INGREDIENTS:
It is a fact that the liver governs almost the whole detoxicating system in the organism, especially in the intestines. All the food decomposed in the intestines is directed towards the liver, except for the facts which are concentrated in the chylifers.
It follows that the functional disorders of the liver will involve a repercussion in the intestines (stoppages). On the other hand the liver sends toxic elements outwards through the intestines. In this connection cholesterins and porphyrins deserve special mention as intermediaries among the homoglobin tissues; they are consumed by the liver. In modern therapy the liver is exposed to harmful retoxication in many ways. This entails a merely intermittent emission or absorption of intermediary elements and this intermittence has repercussions in the intestines. The outcome is flatulence, meteorism, flatulent colic, intestinal cramps which are often considered as the after-effects of appendicitis or even of tumours. These ailments can also be induced by nicotine. Chronic constipation is a frequent concomitant and R 37 becomes even more imperative.
