Product Information

For proper detoxification of toxins, adequate liver function is essential. The liver uses a two-phase method of detoxification. In phase I, fat-soluble substances, including toxins, are converted by the cytochrome p450 enzymes into intermediate molecules that, while they are now more water-soluble, are not yet ready to be eliminated. In phase II of liver detoxification, the intermediate substances created during phase I are attached to other substances, such as glutathione, sulfur, and methyl groups, to create sufficiently water-soluble compounds that can be excreted from the liver in the bile. A number of botanicals have demonstrated the ability to improve the liver's detoxification function as well as to increase the liver's output of bile.*

Liver Cleanse is a potent combination of herbs that work synergistically to enhance the function of the liver and is specifically helpful during a comprehensive detoxification program.* The herbs in this formula enhance the production and flow of bile, which helps to optimize metabolism and the excretion of substances detoxified by the liver.* Several of these herbs also provide support for the kidneys.*

As with all detoxification regimens, proper intestinal elimination is essential. A person should be having at least one healthy bowel movement daily. An individual who is constipated should not supplement with Liver Cleanse because the toxins released into the bile may be reabsorbed. Vitamin C and MediBulk can be used in conjunction with Liver Cleanse to assist in bowel cleansing.* The suggested starting amount is one capsule taken in the evening. If more liver cleansing is indicated, supplementation can be gradually increased.
