Supports Liver Function and Detoxification
Includes Milk Thistle & Dandelion Root Extract
HEPA PLUS is a effective, natural, and synergistic liver support formula. It provides nutrients both protecting the liver and offering support for detoxification. Hepa Plus contains milk thistle (Silybum marianum) extract standardized to greater than 80% silymarin, dandelion root extract 4:1, alpha lipoic acid, n-acetyl-l-cysteine (NAC), thiamin diphosphate (cocarboxylase), ornithine alpha-ketoglutarate, glycine, taurine, and the minerals molybdenum and selenium.
NUTRITIONAL CONSIDERATIONS & APPLICATIONS
Extensive research has shown that silymarin (the major component of milk thistle extract) exerts both a protective and a restorative effect on the liver and can stimulate the growth of new liver cells to replace old, damaged cells. Studies have shown that dandelion root enhances the flow of bile, improving such conditions as liver congestion, bile duct inflammation, hepatitis, gallstones, and jaundice.
Alpha-lipoic acid is an important nutrient that enhances metabolism, acts both as 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 for impaired liver function.
NAC is an effective nutrient for increasing liver concentrations of glutathione—a critically important antioxidant in the liver.
Glycine and taurine play important roles in 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 for the synthesis of enzymes that support liver detoxification.
