Description

Liver Protect contains the amino acid N-acetyl-L-cysteine, a key component of glutathione—a tripeptide that plays a significant role in detoxification and antioxidant support. Liver Protect also contains a combination of alpha-lipoic acid, silymarin from milk thistle, and selenium for support of antioxidant activity, regeneration of other antioxidants, and promotion of healthy immune function.*

Available in 60 capsules and 120 capsules

Does Not Contain:
Wheat, gluten, yeast, soy, animal or dairy products, fish, shellfish, peanuts, tree nuts, egg, ingredients derived from genetically modified organisms (GMOs), artificial colors, artificial sweeteners, or artificial preservatives.
Other Ingredients:
HPMC (capsule), stearic acid, microcrystalline cellulose, magnesium stearate, and silica.

The liver is the body’s major metabolic organ. It processes, packages,
stores, and ships out carbohydrates, fats, proteins, and micronutrients.
It is responsible for the breakdown and elimination of alcohol, toxins,
hormones, and medications, as well as for the synthesis of vital
proteins, such as albumin, prealbumin, and clotting factors. It may be
stated that the health of the body depends on the health of the liver.
Research suggests that providing targeted nutrition supplementation
may help support liver function and health.*[1]

N-Acetyl-Cysteine (NAC) An acetylated derivative of the sulfurcontaining
amino acid L-cysteine, NAC promotes the synthesis
of glutathione—a tripeptide that is active in detoxification and
antioxidant systems. Glutathione also supports a healthy defense
against hepatotoxic environmental pollutants, gamma-radiation, and
other potential toxins.*[1,2]

Alpha-Lipoic Acid Sometimes referred to as thioctic acid, alpha-lipoic
acid is both water- and fat-soluble. It supports glutathione, helps
regenerate antioxidant vitamins C and E, helps maintain the ratio of
reduced to oxidized CoQ10 in the mitochondria, and helps support
healthy levels of nitric oxide in the liver and kidney.[3] The redox couple
of lipoic acid and dihydrolipoic stabilizes NF-kappaB transcription and
may help support healthy immune functions in the body.*[4,5]

Milk Thistle Seed Extract Silymarin, the active component in milk
thistle, has a history of use in promoting liver health. It supports
antioxidant activity, neutralizes toxins, and also may protect
hepatocytes’ genetic material. Like alpha-lipoic acid, silymarin
supports production of cellular glutathione. Its actions in the liver
include maintaining normal levels of fat peroxidation and fibrous tissue
formation; supporting a healthy immune response and the natural
response to inflammation; and promoting protein synthesis and
normal regeneration of liver tissue.[6] A randomized placebo-controlled
study of 103 individuals suggested that silymarin yielded statistically
positive results and was well tolerated.*[7]

Selenium (as selenomethionine) An important coenzyme for the
glutathione peroxidase detoxification system, selenium also appears
to support the endogenous antioxidant defenses of hepatocytes
by upregulating their manganese superoxide dismutase (MnSOD)
expression. At the same time, selenium appears to support healthy
cytokine balance by affecting interleukin-6 (IL-6) transcription
in Kupffer cells (liver-based macrophages).[8] Kupffer cells play a
crucial role in maintaining normal structure and function in the
liver. Supporting their function and the body’s normal inflammatory
response in turn supports liver health overall.*[9]

Upon studying targeted nutrition support for liver health, physician and
researcher Dr. Burton M. Berkson chose to combine alpha-lipoic acid,
silymarin, and selenium to obtain a balanced and low-cost approach
to liver support.[10] These three ingredients plus NAC are all present
in Liver Protect™ to support liver health, a
