VitaSupport Liver Function is a healthy liver support formula, with a combination of herbal extracts and powders, plus vitamins - choline, biotin, artichoke, garlic, burdock root, parsley leaf, N-Acetyl L- Cysteine, beetroot, liquorice root, Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA), fennel seed, turmeric, ginger root, cayenne and dandelion root.
The liver has many vital functions, including removing harmful waste products from the body, the storage of nutrients for timely energy release and maintaining vitality and well-being. VitaSupport Liver Function is designed to support the liver and other detoxification organs and systems of the body - particularly during periods of over-indulgence in food, alcohol or smoking.
We are continually exposed to toxins - in the air we breath, in the water we drink and bathe in and in the food we eat. Our bodies are therefore continually trying to remove these toxins through our natural detoxification systems.
The primary detox organ in the body is the liver. Vital for cleansing the blood of impurities and keeping the body working well, it performs over 500 functions, including: cleaning the blood of toxins and chemicals, excreting wastes via bile, acting as a 'factory' for proteins and cholesterol, converting excess glucose to starch and excreting bile for fat digestion.
Every toxin we are exposed to (whether eaten, inhaled or absorbed) arrives at the liver. Such toxins include metabolic end products, micro-organisms, contaminants, pollutants, insecticides, pesticides, food additives, drugs and alcohol.
If one of the body’s detox systems is over-burdened, this also places strain on the other systems, which include the digestive system, urinary system, lymphatic system, lungs and skin.
In particular, the ingredients in this comprehensive food supplement help to cleanse a congested liver and gallbladder and support cell repair and protection. It has been formulated to stimulate, flush, cleanse and protect these two important organs. If you thought milk thistle worked well, this formula will "blitz" internal congestion and toxins.
Working with the body’s other detoxification systems, the liver converts these toxins into a form more easily excreted.
The liver works in harmony with the body's other detox organs
Waste products are eliminated from the body via the:
- gallbladder: using bile and bowel actions
- skin: through sweat
- kidneys: through urine
Top tip: Alcohol is a hormone disruptor because it taxes the liver, which is responsible for eliminating excessive or waste hormones from the body. If the liver is busy dealing with breaking down alcohol, it is unable to fulfil the important role of ridding the body of waste hormones.
Choline contributes to normal homocysteine metabolism, normal lipid metabolism and to the maintenance of normal liver function.
Biotin contributes to normal energy-yielding metabolism, normal functioning of the nervous system, normal macronutrient metabolism, normal psychological function, normal hair and skin and the maintenance of normal mucous membranes.
