• HEPA PLUS is a unique, synergistic liver protection and detoxification formula. It provides effective nutrients offering superior natural support for liver health.
• HEPA PLUS 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.
• 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.
• 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.
• HEPA PLUS may be used by itself or together with our Antioxidant Formula or Ultimate Protector™ in order to provide optimal support for important liver detoxification processes.
