It belongs to the group of natural flavonoids and is very close in chemical structure to quercetin and rutin, as well as to silibinin.
It is used as a "hepatoprotective" agent for improving liver function in patients with viral hepatitis, with compensated liver cirrhosis of viral etiology, chronic liver lesions of alcoholic etiology (moderate), and other toxic liver lesions.
It is believed that the mechanism of hepatoprotective action is due to the binding of toxic free radicals and stabilization of cell membranes and lysosomes (which is also characteristic of other flavonoids).
