Q. What is Hepawin?

Hepawin is made up of two amino acids. It is most commonly used in cases of liver diseases in order to prevent it from abnormal brain function called hepatic encephalopathy.

This deteriorating condition of the liver starts affecting the functioning of the brain, causing Hepatic encephalopathy.
