Your liver is vital to proper health. Its main function—and what it’s most commonly known for—is to filter bad elements from your blood and detoxify chemicals, such as alcohol and drugs. Due to today’s imperfect, processed diets and modern, fast-paced lifestyles, your liver may need additional support in order to function properly. Thorne Research uses a superior herbal formula in T.A.P.S. to provide you with this support.
This supplement has been formulated specifically to protect your liver. The main ingredients in T.A.P.S. all work towards this goal, and include curcumin, artichoke, picrorhiza, and silybin phytosome (where the name of this product is derived). T.A.P.S also contains flavonoid phytosomes, which are used to promote absorption of the main ingredients.
Curcumin has been used for centuries in traditional Chinese medicine, mainly to reduce inflammation and minimize free radical damage. One study found that mice that were given curcumin had lower levels of liver inflammation than those mice that were not provided with that dose.
Artichoke has been eaten and used as medicine for several centuries. Research has shown that artichoke can help protect the liver from harmful toxins and promote healthy liver function. This vegetable contains bioflavonoids, a type of antioxidant that fights against the free radicals that attack healthy cells in your body. Free radicals can enter your body through cigarette smoke, alcohol intake, environmental pollution, and other avenues.
Picrorhiza is used to promote healthy liver function due to its antioxidant properties. Studies have found picrorhiza to protect you from the damage that can result from certain free radicals like carbon tetrachloride. It may also be able to help stimulate liver regeneration.
Silybin phytosome, more commonly known as milk thistle, is typically used to treat liver disorders. Milk thistle has been utilized for over 2,000 years for this purpose. Studies have led researchers to believe milk thistle’s flavonoid properties help protect the liver from certain free radicals and toxins.

INTERACTIONS/CONTRAINDICATIONS Curcumin has been shown to reduce the therapeutic efficacy of cyclophosphamide (Cytoxan) in animal studies. In vitro research reveals curcumin decreased camptothecin-induced death of cultured breast cancer cells. Curcumin might also interfere with the absorption and efficacy of the chemotherapy drug irinotecan, used to treat colon cancer. The concurrent use of curcumin with these agents should be avoided.
Have been taking T.A.P.S. twice a day for a couple of years now at the advice of my naturalpathic doctor, to keep my liver healthy. Seems to be working as my liver function values as reflected in my annual blood work are staying in the normal range.

I'm taking T.A.P.S. by Thorne Research on the recommendation of my MD. I'm very sensitive so I'm usually cautious about introducing new products. T.A.P.S. has been fine! No digestive, headache, sleep or any other issues.
