Liver damage/disease are no fun. Liver disease can be inherited (genetic). Liver problems can also be caused by a variety of factors that damage the liver, such as viruses, alcohol use and obesity. If signs and symptoms of liver disease do occur, this may include: Skin and eyes that appear yellowish (jaundice), abdominal pain and swelling, and swelling in the legs and ankles.
Beyond Health’s extra-strength Liver Care is a unique, synergistic liver protection and detoxification formula. It provides effective nutrients offering superior natural support for liver health.
This formula was designed to strengthen and rebuild a damaged liver or a liver under siege. It contains milk thistle (Silybum marianum) extract standardized to greater than 80 percent silymarin, dandelion root extract, alpha lipoic acid, n-acetyl-l-cysteine (NAC), thiamin diphosphate (cocarboxylase), ornithine alpha-ketoglutarate, glycine, taurine, molybdenum and selenium.
Studies have shown that dandelion root enhances the flow of bile, improving such conditions as liver congestion, bile duct inflammation, hepatitis, gallstones, and jaundice. Lipoic acid is an important nutrient that enhances metabolism, acts as both a water soluble and fat-soluble antioxidant, and is a toxic metal chelator (including chelation of free iron, copper, cadmium, mercury, and lead).
Thiamin diphosphate is a coenzyme form of Vitamin B1 and is especially helpful in those with impaired liver function. NAC is an effective nutrient for increasing liver concentrations of glutathione an extremely important antioxidant in the liver. Glycine and taurine play important roles in the phase II liver detoxification pathways. Ornithine plays a key role in the urea cycle and allows the liver to eliminate the buildup of toxic levels of ammonia. Molybdenum and selenium are essential minerals in the synthesis of enzymes which support liver detoxification.
