Rowachol increases biliary secretion,
relieves spasm of the bile ducts, enhances metabolic liver function by reducing biliary stasis.
By inhibiting HMGCoA reductase, endogenous cholesterol production is reduced, maintaining
the bile above saturation level, assisting the dissolution of gallstones and preventing
precipitation of further stones. The choleresis produced by Rowachol increases
insulin production, assisting in the control of diabetic states.
