3. Cucurbitacins are anti-carcinogenic (ethno botanical and anecdotal data).

The African Cucumis is favoured by African herbal doctors for its curative properties and rapid results. It is widely used for acute liver disorders, hepatocirrhosis, hepatitis and has strong anti-inflammatory properties.

Due to its detoxifying and nourishing of the liver together with promoting body immunity, LiverMax has an invigorating effect on the whole body. This action is further strengthened by its anti-parasitical properties (in-vitro data). To regard LiverMax as an herbal supplement is underestimating the true value of this product. The African Cucumis full potential is only now being discovered, as it keeps amazing everyone involved in its research. In-vitro research carried out in South Africa, has shown that the African Cucumis has anti-parasitical properties.
