Contains: Vitamins B, E and PP, Linoleic, Linolenic and Oleic Acids. 

This is a very unique product in that it presents a vitamin and essential fatty acid supplement in the form of an injectable compound (although a tablet form is also available). The vitamins and fatty acids function synergistically to assist in the removal of fatty deposits in the liver, thereby helping to maintain normal liver function.

B vitamins are essential when it comes to metabolism and cell growth and, as water soluble vitamins, they need to be replaced daily. Vitamin E is a valuable antioxidant, which is known to reduce the effects of free radicals on the body. When it comes to fatty acids, although the fatty acids presented here are added for their liver protecting properties, their importance in the process of muscle growth cannot be ignored. In fact, a deficiency of any of the essential fatty acids will result in a decrease in muscle growth and repair.

When muscle cells are broken down due to weight training it is not just the internal protein content that is affected, the fatty cell membrane (comprised of essential fatty acids) also needs to be repaired. The failure to ingest adequate EFA’s along with protein will seriously impair the growth process. With this in mind, ‘Essentiale Forte N’ not only serves as a valuable product to assist in the optimum function of your liver, it also has the added benefit of assisting cellular renewal and growth.

The Linoleic, Linolenic and Oleic acids (also known as omega 3, 6 and 9 respectively) also contribute to hormone production and – in the case of Oleic acid – may present the added benefit of increasing metabolic rate.

‘Essentiale Forte N’ is normally used for the treatment of:

  • Hepatic Steatosis
  • Acute and chronic hepatitis
  • Cirrhosis
  • Liver cytoclasis
  • Hepatic coma and pre-coma, toxic liver effects
  • Psoriasis, neurodermatitus

That being said, it is easy to see that it is a very interesting product to consider adding to any supplement schedule that may compromise the liver (e.g. the use of c-17 alpha-alkylated drugs).

It is also a safe, natural product to use in terms of general health. The only side effect associated with its use seems to be gastric upset. Having said that, it seems that this effect is only experienced by those taking high doses (which is true for most supplements anyway)

Leigh Penman, in addition to be a staff writer at MuscleSport Mag, has been writing for bodybuilding magazines, websites and nutritional supplement companies since 1985. Whilst residing in the UK, she earned the reputation of being one of the top female writers in bodybuilding-related media. Her credits included being a contributing editor on all the magazines in production as well as filling the shoes of Ladies Editor and Showbiz Editor on two publications (the later being on Arnold’s sanctioned magazine, ‘Bodypower’). During this time she also competed successfully on four occasions (placing in the top four in all contests).

Relocating to New York in the late 1990s she focused her writing attention to crystal healing techniques and metaphysics – however, she still maintained a five day workout schedule during this time and gained her personal training certificate.

Having also studied pharmacology in relation to sports performance, her writing began taking her in that direction until the present day which sees her embarking on a return to the magazine world, as well as extending her web-related work in the bodybuilding and fitness field.

Leigh has been working out for close to thirty years so she is clearly a writer who ‘walks her talk.’
