The liver is the largest gland and the most important detoxification organ in the body. More than 500 functions have been attributed to the liver. These functions include the production of bile and the secretion of glucose‚ proteins‚ vitamins and fats. The liver also stores energy in the form of glycogen and decomposes red blood cells and unwanted proteins. These important functions explain why the liver has two distinct blood supplies: one to bring oxygen to the liver‚ the other (called the hepatic portal system) to bring substances absorbed from the GI tract to the liver for processing and detoxification.
Liver disorders are a major health problem in North America. While most of the severe liver disorders are related to alcohol consumption‚ viral hepatitis and related to alcohol consumption‚ viral hepatitis and hemochromatosis‚ most o us should be taking better care of our liver disorders are related to alcohol consumption‚ viral hepatitis and hemochromatosis‚ most of us should be taking better care of our liver because when we overindulge‚ our liver suffers. 10-15% percent of North Americans drink excessively and 5% of us have a genetic disorder known as Gilbert's syndrome which causes abnormal bilirubin metabolism. It should come as no surprise that roughly 6% of healthy people have abnormal liver function. Since a liver in good health effectively decides what nutrients to keep and which ones to throw away‚ it deserves to be looked after.
Liver Support was formulated to support optimal liver function. The ingredients found in liver Support have collectively been shown in studies to protect the liver form toxins‚ stimulate liver regeneration‚ inhibit lipid peroxidation‚ enhance levels of glutathione and induce cytochrome P 450 (phase II detoxification).
Milk thistle has been used as a traditional remedy for over 2000 years. Milk thistle protects the liver against toxins and has been used succesfully to treat chronic liver diseases. More recent trials have also suggested that milk thistle has anticancer‚ antidiabetic‚ and cardioprotective effects.
Phyllanthus niuri (PN) - PN is a perennial herb common in hot central and southern areas of the Indian Subcontinent. One of the most impressive applications of PN is in the treatment of certain viruses‚ particularly hepatitis B. Hepatitis B is a virus that affects the liver‚ causing inflammation and jaundice‚ possible leading to liver cirrhosis‚ cancer‚ or even death. The effect of Phyllanthus for the treatment of infective hepatitis has been studied clinically in 160 patients suffering from jaundice. Of the 160‚ 101 were completely cured while there were 59 dropouts. PN has also been documented to protect the liver from damage by a variety of chemical liver toxins and oxidative stress.
Sulphorane glucosinolate (SGS) is a naturally occurring isiothiocyanate found in the brassica family of vegetables‚ such as broccoli. Sulphoraphane has been shown to stimulate the natural defenses of the body to prevent or ameliorate chronic disease. It is a natural anti-oxidant and a potent inducer of phase II liver detoxification enzymes. These effects sulphoraphane not only potent hepatoprotective properties‚ but also anti-carcinogenic properties.
N-Acetyl-Cysteine (NAC) is an effective precursor to glutathione‚ one of the most important antioxidants of the body. Glutathione is a protein made from 3 amino acids and its synthesis is limited by the availability of cysteine. NAC protects the liver against free radicals and toxins and is now no further - Liver Support is based on the latest research trials and contains ingredients shown to prevent liver injury and support normal liver function.
