About swertimarin

Swertia , a Gentianaceae plant, mainly grow in China, India and Nepal. Swertiamarin is a class of Iiridoids extract from Swertia millensis which can reduce liver injury cause by toxicity substances and prevent for liver injury cause by absence of oxygen. Swertiamarin can also inhibit to central nervous system, it is a significant role of removing spasm and pain, it shows good effect as a treatment of gastroente ritis. Researches confirmed that swertiamarin show 50% inhibition rate to liver cancerunder consistency of 35~50μg. We can expect that Swertiamarin still have deeper level of research value as a new anti-cancer drugs.
