Cleansing and Restoration
The functions of the liver are diverse, complex, and absolutely necessary for human metabolism. As one of the primary organs of detoxification, the liver is exposed to a vast array of chemicals, drugs and pollutants, especially in our modern world. Traditionally, the following herbs have been used to promote the flow of bile, cleanse, detoxify, and restore the liver.
The liver is the primary metabolizer of fats and cholesterol, so it is particularly important to keep these substances circulating freely. Lipotropic agents function to mobilize lipids and remove excess fats from the liver.
In the process of its metabolic and detoxification functions, the liver generates and is exposed to many free radicals. The following antioxidant compounds protect the protein, lipid and DNA of the liver from free radicals. Vitamin E and coenzyme Q10 are active in cell membranes, while vitamin C and lipoic acid function in the intracellular fluid.
The liver synthesizes the antioxidant, glutathione, and the antioxidant enzyme, glutathione peroxidase - perhaps the most important antioxidants made by the body. Glutathione peroxidase contains four selenium atoms. It catalyzes the oxidation of glutathione, present in all animal cells at high concentration. Cysteine is the rate-limiting factor for glutathione synthesis. These two molecules safeguard cells against oxidation and maintain the integrity of red blood cells.
The liver requires a tremendous amount of energy to perform its diverse metabolic functions, which include maintaining a normal blood glucose concentration, forming cholesterol and phospholipids, and synthesizing amino acids, plasma proteins and other important compounds. In addition, this vital organ converts vitamins into their active co-enzyme forms and breaks down and excretes drugs and hormones. The following nutrients are required by the liver for its energy needs.
Leaders of the Wellness Revolution
Source Naturals was created in 1982 by C.E.O Ira Goldberg to support each individual’s potential to enjoy optimal health. At that time, the kind of nutritional formulations he envisioned – for the maintenance of well-being and the enhancement of life – simply didn’t exist. The idea of combining many nutrients, herbs and nutraceuticals in one formulation, though common today, was then a rarity. Source Naturals pioneered the concept with Wellness Formula™, now the industry’s #1 immune support product. Source Naturals subsequently introduced numerous award-winning formulas, recognized for their excellence in independent surveys and nutritional analyses. In addition to Wellness, these award-winners include Life Force Multiple™, Mega-Kid Multiple™, Inflama-Rest™, the Skin Eternal™ line, Higher Mind™, Essential Enzymes™, Male Response™, and more.
Source Naturals’ comprehensive Bio-Aligned Formulas™ help bring the power of alignment to your body. When formulating, Source Naturals evaluates the underlying causes of system imbalances, and then provides targeted nutrition to interdependent body systems. Source Naturals' line of more than 600 products also includes well-researched, single entity nutrients in their highest quality and most bioavailable forms. Source Naturals' nutritional supplements are at the leading edge of today’s Wellness Revolution. This transformation in health consciousness also includes new perspectives in diet, lifestyle, emotional and spiritual development, and complementary health care. Source Naturals Strategy for Wellness is to provide education that empowers individuals to take responsibility for their health, rather than relying solely on outside medical authority. The result is people who are more productive and fulfilled, and a world that is stronger and healthier.
