Silymarin with Vit B Complex syrup ( Liver tonic syrup)
Vitamin B complex refers to the family of B vitamins, which includes thiamine, riboflavin, niacin, folate, biotin and vitamins B5, B6 and B12. These vitamins serve many important roles throughout the body but are particularly important in supporting some essential liver functions — including detoxification of drugs and chemicals, and processing and metabolism of dietary proteins, fats and sugars.
B vitamin deficiencies occur in some people with advanced cirrhosis, which can result from various forms of hepatitis. People with alcoholic liver disease are particularly prone to B vitamin deficiencies. These deficiencies typically develop because of malnutrition, poor absorption of vitamins from the intestines and changes in blood circulation that result in increased loss of B vitamins through the kidneys.
