Description of Liver Guard, Silymarin / CoQ10 / NAC Complex, 30 Tablets, Source Naturals
Liver Guard NAC/Silymarin/CoQ10 30 tabs from Source Naturals
Liver Guard Bio-Aligned Formula
Liver Guard is a Bio-Aligned Formula, designed to protect and defend you from
the toxins and pollution that pervade the environment. Liver Guard addresses
multiple body systems involved with optimal liver function, which is crucial
to detoxification: liver cleansing and restoration, fat metabolism, antioxidant
production and defense, and energy generation. Lipoic acid, silymarin and N-acetyl
cysteine (NAC) are potent antioxidants that support healthy liver function.
NAC is a precursor to glutathione, one of the liver's primary free-radical scavengers.
And silymarin, the active flavonoid complex of the herb milk thistle, has been
shown in vitro to inhibit lipid peroxidation of cell membranes.
Liver Guard - Silymarin, CoQ10, and N-Acetyl Cysteine Complex
Much as we try to live healthy lifestyles, it's impossible to avoid the toxins
and pollution that pervade our environment. LIVER GUARD addresses the multiple
body systems involved with optimal liver function, which is so crucial to detoxification.
Liver Guard supports liver cleansing, fat metabolism, antioxidant defense, and
- Cleansing & Restoration
The functions of the liver are diverse, complex, and absolutely necessary
for human metabolism. As one of the primary organs of detoxification, the
liver is exposed to a vast array of chemicals, drugs and pollutants, especially
in our modern world. Traditionally, the following herbs have been used to
promote the flow of bile, cleanse, detoxify, and restore the liver.
- Fat Metabolism
The liver is the primary metabolizer of fats and cholesterol, so it is particularly
important to keep these substances circulating freely. Lipotropic agents function
to mobilize lipids and remove excess fats from the liver.
- Antioxidant Defense
In the process of its metabolic and detoxification functions, the liver generates
and is exposed to many free radicals. The following antioxidant compounds
protect the protein, lipid and DNA of the liver from free radicals. Vitamin
E and coenzyme Q10 are active in cell membranes, while vitamin C and lipoic
acid function in the intracellular fluid.
- Antioxidant Production
The liver synthesizes the antioxidant, glutathione, and the antioxidant enzyme,
glutathione peroxidase - perhaps the most important antioxidants made by the
body. Glutathione peroxidase contains four selenium atoms. It catalyzes the
oxidation of glutathione, present in all animal cells at high concentration.
Cysteine is the rate-limiting factor for glutathione synthesis. These two
molecules safeguard cells against oxidation and maintain the integrity of
red blood cells.
- Energy Generation
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, this vital organ converts
vitamins into their active co-enzyme forms and breaks down and excretes drugs
and hormones. The following nutrients are required by the liver for its energy
