- Why is this product important?
Liver Guard™ is an important tool for liver support. The liver is the largest of your vital organs and the chemical factory for your body. The liver is central to processing vitamins and minerals for use in the body, most of which cannot be utilized in their originally ingested form. Many nutrients are of no use to us unless they are chemically altered and activated, primarily by the liver. The liver is also one of the primary organs for detoxification of your body. The liver detoxifies the byproducts of digestion and other harmful substances in the body through a complex series of enzymatic chemical reactions. Source Naturals Liver Guard helps maintain optimal liver function with 28 essential nutrients identified in studies as nourishing or protecting the liver.
- Why is this called a BioAligned formula™?
BioAligned formulas™ address the interrelated processes and systems that contribute to optimal health. For Liver Guard™, the BioAligned approach focuses on providing liver-centric supporting nutrients for healthy detoxification, antioxidant defense, and energy. Each system uses an array of nutrients. To help support healthy detoxification and to help the liver clear the body of pollutants, the following supportive ingredients are used: vitamins B-1, B-2, niacin, magnesium, selenium, vitamins C & E, alpha-lipoic acid, artichoke, bupleurum root, calcium D-glucarate, dandelion root, milk thistle (silymarin), N-acetyl cysteine, Oregon grape root, turmeric, and wasabia.
- Why is energy part of this system?
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, the liver needs energy to convert vitamins into their active coenzyme forms, so the body can utilize them.
- What nutrients are used for energy?
Liver Guard provides energy support with ingredients like alpha-lipoic acid, coenzyme Q10, the B vitamins B-1, B-2, B-5, B-6 and B-12, as well as folic acid, niacin, and niacinamide. These are all valuable nutrients required by the liver to support its energy needs.
- Who should take this product?
Source Naturals® recommends that everyone support healthy liver function, but this is especially important for people who work or live in a polluted environment, whose sources of food are not the best, and for people who carry excess weight or who struggle with low energy. Liver Guard is a valuable core product in any person’s supplementation regimen.*
