Silymarin, CoQ10, and N-Acetyl Cysteine Complex
Cleansing and Restoration
The functions of the liver are diverse, complex, and absolutely necessary for human metabolism. As one of the primary organs of detoxification, the liver is exposed to a vast array of chemicals, drugs and pollutants, especially in our modern world. Traditionally, the following herbs have been used to promote the flow of bile, cleanse, detoxify, and restore the liver.
N-Acetyl Cysteine, Dandelion Root, Silymarin, Turmeric
The liver is the primary metabolizer of fats and cholesterol, so it is particularly important to keep these substances circulating freely. Lipotropic agents function to mobilize lipids and remove excess fats from the liver.
In the process of its metabolic and detoxification functions, the liver generates and is exposed to many free radicals. The following antioxidant compounds protect the protein, lipid and DNA of the liver from free radicals. Vitamin E and coenzyme Q10 are active in cell membranes, while vitamin C and lipoic acid function in the intracellular fluid.
Coenzyme Q10, N-Acetyl Cysteine, alpha-Lipoic Acid, Silymarin, Turmeric, Selenium, Zinc, Vitamins C and E
The liver synthesizes the antioxidant, glutathione, and the antioxidant enzyme, glutathione peroxidase ? perhaps the most important antioxidants made by the body. Glutathione peroxidase contains four selenium atoms. It catalyzes the oxidation of glutathione, present in all animal cells at high concentration. Cysteine is the rate-limiting factor for glutathione synthesis. These two molecules safeguard cells against oxidation and maintain the integrity of red blood cells.
N-Acetyl Cysteine, Selenium, Vitamin B-2
The liver requires a tremendous amount of energy to perform its diverse metabolic functions, which include maintaining a normal blood glucose concentration, forming cholesterol and phospholipids, and synthesizing amino acids, plasma proteins and other important compounds. In addition, this vital organ converts vitamins into their active co-enzyme forms and breaks down and excretes drugs and hormones. The following nutrients are required by the liver for its energy needs.
Coenzyme Q10, alpha-Lipoic Acid, Magnesium, Potassium, Vitamins B-1, B-2, B-5, B-6 and B-12, Folic Acid, Niacin, Niacinamide
