DADA, the so-called Vitamin B15, has strong lipotrophic action, supports liver function, and reduces serum cholesterol. By its vasodilating action, DADA also enhances peripheral muscle blood perfusion.
L-Arginine has been effective in detoxification of blood ammonia, in the improvement of blood cell production, and the promotion of wound healing. It is one of the essential amino acids for growth in young animals. Arginine infusions are used to correct alkalosis in liver disease.
L-Lysine is effective in controlling Herpes simplex virus in humans, and may be valuable in prophylaxis in outbreaks of stable virus infections.
HEPTENAL is indicated to stimulate hepatic function and appetite in the face of the physical stress of training, racing, convalescence, stimulation of recovery after viral illness or surgery, and as an adjunct to treatment of intoxication by heavy metals, nitrites and organophosphates.
