HepZone SST Clinical Proven Herbal Formula for Liver Health.
- To improve liver function.
- To increase immune against harmful damages on the body.
- To enhance digestive health.
An herbal product based upon Asian traditional medicine, has been successfully used for liver health in Japan and China for decades.
HepZone SST (Sho-Saiko-To) is based on the traditional Japanese medicine called "Kampo", a concept described in the classical medical literature dating back to the Han Dynasty during 200 A.D. in ancient China. Today, this traditional medicine system is obtaining more and more scientific recognition. In Japan, fully 75% of physicians use at least some of the traditional Kampo formulas in their daily practice.
Liver function can be compromised by a number of things - pollution, pharmaceuticals, pesticides, steroids, poor diet, insufficient rest, stress, obesity, smoking, and illness, to name a few. Since the liver is one of the most important organs when it comes to fighting illness, liver problems can have serious consequences.
HepZone SST formula has stayed the same for hundreds of years, because it has repeatedly proven successful for protecting the liver. While the ingredients work synergistically, they are also quite potent individually.
Sho-Saiko-To is a mixture of seven botanicals:
- Bupleurum root (Chai hu)
- Pinellia tuber (Ban xia)
- Scutellaria root (Huang qin)
- Ginseng (Ren shen)
- Jujube (Da zao)
- Licorice (Gan cao)
- Ginger (Sheng jiang)
A number of pharmacologically active components have been isolated including:
The standardization specification (HPLC assay) by Honso Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd.:.
- Glycyrrhizin: 24.7-46.0 mg/day
- Baicalin: 110.6-205.6 mg/day
- Saikosaponin: 6.5-19.7 mg/day
Due to the complexity of this formula, only limited data is available. One study indicates that the serum concentration of glycyrrhizin after a normal daily dose is 1.2 mcg/ml.
Sho-saiko-to may cause interstitial pneumonitis, a potentially fatal condition. Concurrent use of interferon may increase this risk.
Women who are nursing or pregnant and patients currently undergoing interferon treatment should not take Sho-saiko-to.
Sho-saiko-to related pneumonitis has been reported in 74 patients (approximately 1 in 20,000).

What is Kampo?
Kampo medicine is integrated into the national health care system in Japan. Kampo describes Japanese herbal medicine and it is part of the Chinese medicine tradition. In order to validate the Chinese medicine, starting from the 1960's Japanese physicians began to combine their historical medical wisdom with modern medical research. Today, all Kampo manufacturers in Japan are required to meet the same quality standards as Western pharmaceutical companies. Kampo products are strictly regulated pharmaceutical-grade formulas. Chinese medicine formulas are standardized to contain consistent levels of active constituents. For example, HepZone's Sho-saiko-to is standardized by Japanese specifications to contain three markers: Glycyrrhizin, Baicalin, and Saikosaponin measured by HPLC. These are the important active compounds in establishing a normal liver function. Now it is easier than ever to benefit from the secrets of the ancient Chinese medicine system!
