in drug burden

The liver is the only gland in the human body that simultaneously receives blood from a vein and an artery (about 100 liters per hour), due to which it plays the role of a filter.

The liver has a lot of work to do, while the blood is purified from toxins, microbes, and decomposition products. Therefore, even when one maintains a perfectly correct lifestyle and has a strong immunity, the liver needs support! This is especially the case when you have to take all sorts of drug products that increase the burden on the liver.

Sometimes, an increased drug burden can even lead to medicamental liver damage that develops for 5 to 90 days after administration of a drug product. The risk of occurrence of this condition is increased when several medicines are taken concomitantly (paracetamol; non-hormonal anti-inflammatory drugs — nimesulide; antibiotics — amoxicillin with clavulanic acid, cefazolin, macrolides, doxycycline, levofloxacin; biseptol; enalapril; allopurinol; methotrexate; azathioprine; carbamazepine; phenobarbital; sulfasalazine; omeprazole; herbs).

After detoxification by biochemical reactions in the liver cells, these substances in the form of harmless products are excreted by the kidneys or bile.

The intensity of excretion depends on their binding to proteins and the activity of liver enzymes.

The role of Betargin in detoxification

Normalizes microcirculation in the liver and increases the activity of detoxification enzymes (cytochrome P450), which helps accelerating the neutralization and elimination of toxic metabolic products, as well as drug cleavage products

Involved in the protein synthesis, which contributes to its binding to toxic substances and accelerates the excretion

Protects and repairs damaged liver cells by repairing their membranes

Fills energy deficiency by synthesizing ATP molecules (energy) in the Krebs cycle and eliminates asthenic syndrome (apathy, malaise, increased fatigue)

Advantages of Betargin


PROMOTES the decrease of hepatotoxicity manifestations

ENHANCES liver detoxification function
MAINTAINS energy production in liver cells

Recommended administration regimen


Dissolve the contents of 1 stick or 1 glass container of Betargina in ½ of a glass (100 ml) of drinking water of room temperature and take 2-3 times daily after meal.


Can Betargin be taken in hepatitis C, liver cirrhosis, and encephalopathy?… Irina, 05.11.16


In patients with liver cirrhosis, Betargin promotes the improvement of protein synthesis function, enhancement of detoxification, and improvemen of microcirculation in the liver. But in any case, the doctor determines the therapy scheme, its duration and doses on a case-by-case basis.

I take several medications on a permanent basis, I have even begun to feel nausea and pain in my side, and the doctor says it’s from taking the medications, but they can’t be withdrawn, so she prescribed Betargin to support the liver. I’m worried, wouldn’t it make me sick too? Victor, 25.04.14.

Yes, indeed, there is such a phenomenon as drug burden on the liver, when, during long-term use of medications, the liver does not have time to neutralize the drug cleavage products, and this may soon lead to its inflammation. With long-term dysfunction of the liver, patients may experience dyspeptic manifestations – nausea, heaviness in the right hypochondrium, etc. Betargin in such cases exerts several effects at once – due to arginine, it restores the detoxification functions of the liver, reduces inflammation, and also eliminates dyspeptic phenomena due to citrate ions in its composition. Therefore, nausea will soon resolve, and the pain in the hypochondrium will also be alleviated.
