Liver Optimizer combines herbs and other nutrients known to impact detoxification and overall liver function. It is especially directed toward Phase 2 enzymes, which assist in the processing and removal of toxins from the body. Milk thistle extract has been shown to affect glutathione levels and aid in the regeneration of liver cells. The sulfur-containing compounds, R-alpha lipoic acid (the naturally-occurring form) and N-acetyl-L-cysteine (NAC), are also involved in the regulation of glutathione. Sulforaphane GlucoSinolate, from broccoli, is a precursor to sulforaphane, an inducer of Phase 2 detoxifying enzymes. PicroMax, a standardized extract of Picrorhiza kurroa, is a hepatoprotective herb well-regarded in Ayurveda. B complex vitamins support liver enzymes and promote liver regeneration. Additionally, the nucleoside uridine supports liver detoxification, while NAC conjugates and promotes excretion of acetaldehyde, a toxic intermediate of alcohol metabolism.
