What Is It?
Proper liver function is essential to good health. Roughly 6% of apparently healthy people have abnormal liver function, and suboptimal liver function is present in many of the illnesses that people face today. Liver Support contains four powerful ingredients known to support the liver: milk thistle extract, the most well-known herb for liver health; N-Acetyl-Cysteine (NAC), the most important precursor for the powerful antioxidant glutathione, and in some countries, a recognized drug to prevent fatal liver damage from acetaminophen poisoning; Phyllanthus niruri, an herb traditionally used for kidney stones, gall stones and liver infections; and sulforaphane glucosinolate (SGS) from broccoli extract known to support detoxification.
What Does It Do?
Primary Uses: Liver Support was formulated with clinically proven nutrients to support optimal liver function. The ingredients found in Liver Support have collectively been shown in studies to protect the liver from toxins, stimulate liver regeneration, enhance levels of glutathione and support detoxification processes that take place in the liver.
Who Should Take It?
Those with liver illnesses, suboptimal liver function and those looking for a formula to support liver detoxification may benefit from Liver Support, as well as those looking to protect against liver damage caused by alcohol, drugs and other toxins.
