Liver Optimizer® combines herbs and other nutrients known to affect detoxification and overall liver function.
It is particularly directed toward phase 2 enzymes, which aid in the processing and removal of toxins from the body. Milk thistle extract has been shown to influence glutathione levels and aid liver cell regeneration.
R-alpha lipoic acid (the bioactive form) and N-acetyl-L-cysteine (NAC) are also involved in glutathione regulation.
Sulforaphane glucosinolate, from broccoli, is a precursor to sulforaphane, an inducer of phase 2 detoxifying enzymes.
Artichoke extract supports glutathione levels and promotes bile production.
B-complex vitamins support liver enzymes and promote liver regeneration. In addition, uridine nucleoside supports liver detoxification, as does NAC.
