Natural Support for Liver Detoxification
Livdetox from Douglas Laboratories may help protect liver health from environmental toxins with a blend of nutrient and herbal ingredients.
Liver's Critical Role
Your liver holds around 13% of your body's blood supply at any given time. When this vital organ is compromised through disease or hindered by stress from a poor diet and other environmental factors, it cannot operate healthily.
Your liver's primary responsibility is to filter the blood coming from the digestive tract, before passing it to the rest of your body.
However, it also detoxifies chemicals and metabolizes drugs, secreting bile as it does so.
Your liver also makes proteins important for blood clotting and other functions.
Livdetox contains numerous dietary constituents that may help protect against toxic environmental stresses that affect the function and structure of the liver.
Choline, betaine, and methionine are involved in methyl group metabolism, which is essential for normal liver function. They carry and donate the methyl molecules needed to carry out some of your body's essential chemical processes.
And deficiencies in choline and inositol may result in excess liver accumulation of fat.
Taraxacum (dandelion) has been traditionally used as a detoxifying herb for the liver and gallbaladder.
Silybum marianum, milk thistle, is rich in flavonoids known collectively as silymarin, which may help your liver deal with such environmental stress factors, as alcohol consumption and exposure to pollutants.
Cynara scolymus (artichoke) may help protect your liver against environmental and infection-generated toxins.
Cynara's usefulness in liver support may be due to its antioxidants known as caffeoylquinic acids, such as cynarin, and flavonoids.
Curcumin is another potent antioxidant, and may also provide important support for healthy liver function.
To use Livdetox as a dietary supplement, adults can take three tablets a day, or as directed by your healthcare professional.
