Phyllanthus for Liver Disease Herbal Support
According to a recent study, published in The Journal of Pharmacy and Pharmacology, scientific evidence suggests strong pharmacological potential for Phyllanthus niruri to provide liver disease herbal support and antiviral therapy.
Evidence suggests that the extracts of Phyllanthus niruri has hepatoprotective, antiviral, antibacterial, hypolipidaemic, hypoglycaemic, analgesic, anti-inflammatory, cardioprotective, anti-urolithiatic and antihyperuricaemic properties due its novel bioactive compounds. The antioxidant hepatoprotective activity of the plant may be due to its rich content of flavonoids, tannins, lignans, and terpenes, which possess antioxidative traits.
Pharmacological Activity of Phyllanthus niruri
Phytochemical studies on Phyllanthus niruri from as early as 1861 have shown that the plant is rich in tannins, flavonoids, alkaloids, terpenes, coumarins, lignans, and phenylpropanoids, which are responsible for its pharmacological activity, including its potential ability to provide liver disease herbal support and antiviral support.
Phyllanthus niruri looseleaf herbal tea and extract offer pharmacological potential for a wide range of conditions. The plant shows the following activities:

Phyllanthus niruri Health Benefits
Best known for helping to eliminate kidney stones and gall stones, Phyllanthus niruri is also traditionally used in South America and around the world to address a variety of chronic illnesses and to provide liver disease herbal support.
Phyllanthus niruri has been traditionally used to help the immune and lymphatic systems combat viruses and bacteria, support the digestive system and renal system, and reduce stress on the pancreatic system.
The important thing to remember is that the same actions that help with chronic illness can help your body stave off the flu or a cold. Phyllanthus niruri blocks the RNA and DNA transferase, slowing or even stopping bacteria and viruses from multiplying and allowing a more balanced immune system to handle the remaining invaders.
Linden Botanicals sells small, 100g sizes of the extract for immune support, as well as larger sizes of the tea and extract. We’ve also included Phyllanthus niruri as one of the six extracts in our proprietary Immune Support Kit.
