is used for

Lipopharm is used for the treatment of a

wide range of liver damage conditions such

as liver failure, fatty liver, scarring of liver

How Lipopharm

works

The liver is the main organ responsible for

detoxifying the body. Lipopharm serves to

protect the liver cells from any damage from

breakdown products of toxins present in liver

cells. Furthermore, it also encourages liver

cell recovery and regeneration after cell

injury. Besides this, Lipopharm also provides

the body with ready phospholipids that are

essential for our body cells maintenance.

liver cells. A ready supply provided by
