Every active individual over the age of 25 should be concerned with the health of their liver. LivClean provides targeted support to maintain healthy and optimal liver function and protect against both “oxidative stress as well as the damaging effects of environmental pollutants that are part of our everyday lives. Intense Physical Training (IPT) exacerbates oxidative stress and damage.
LivClean is formulated with the following:
Dandelion Extract 12:1 stimulates bile production . It contains waste products from hemoglobin break down from oxidative stress. This is known as bilirubin and is normally formed by the body as it gets rid of old red blood cells which are rich in hemoglobin.
Milk Thistle Extract (80% silymarin) exerts a powerful anti-oxidant effect and interrupts recirculation of toxins in the liver. It is the most studied herb for its hepato-protective effect.
N-Acetyl Cysteine (NAC) is an altered form of the amino acid cysteine and is the major building block for glutathione production in the liver. Glutathione is the single most powerful antioxidant. It also assists in the breakdown of toxic fat compounds that are the result of high-intensity training as well as environmental pollutants.
Alpha Lipoic Acid is a vital nutrient in improving liver health and function. It plays an important role in protecting against the damaging by-products of fat metabolism and is shown to be more effective in combination with MTE (milk thistle extract) and NAC (n-acetyl-cysteine)
Resveratrol (3,4′,5-trihydroxy-trans-stilbene) is found in over 300 edible plants. The mechanisms underlying the beneficial effects of resveratrol are not totally elucidated, but have been related mainly to its antioxidant activity that has been demonstrated to protect tissues such as liver, kidney, and brain against a variety of damage caused by oxidative stress.
