Thorne Research - MediClear-SGS Powder Chocolate - 37.9 oz.

MediClear SGS Chocolate by Thorne Research
MediClear dietary supplement powder is formulated specifically to aid the detoxification of the liver. It is made with allergen-friendly pea and rice protein, multiple vitamins and minerals, essential cofactor nutrients the liver needs to function properly, and botanicals that support liver health such as milk thistle and green tea. MediClear is low carb, containing only 9 grams per serving. Plus, it offers high protein (20 grams), low sugar content (only 5 grams) with no added sugars, and 2 grams of dietary fiber. This great-tasting chocolate protein powder will support your gastrointestinal tract, liver, and detoxification of your body and liver. Simply mix with juice or water for a delicious supplement for daily support, during the detoxifying MediClear Program, an elimination diet, or to assist phase I and phase II of detoxification and internal body cleansing. SGS is sulforaphane glucosinolate which is an advanced antioxidant that supports the liver during detoxification. Each serving contains 30 mg of SGS which is equivalent to eating 1.2 pounds of broccoli! The possible life-changing benefits of using MediClear include increased energy, relief from fatigue, better digestion, less allergy irritation than other products might cause, and boosted nutritional intake that covers the gaps in your diet.

    MediClear Detox
    We are constantly exposed to chemicals, pesticides, hormones, heavy metals, and other environmental toxins. Pollutants are in our food, floating around in the air we breathe, in products we touch and ingest… it’s difficult, if not impossible, to steer clear of toxicity. The liver tries to keep up with all that and more. It carries most of the body’s responsibility for internal detoxification and cleansing. Unfortunately, most of us don’t give our livers enough support. We tend to eat the wrong kind of fats, too much sugar, too many carbs, nutrient-deficient vegetables laden with GMO’s and pesticides, and meats pumped full of hormones. It’s no wonder that many of us suffer from poor digestion and gut bacteria imbalance. In liver detox phase I, toxic water-soluble substances are expelled. In phase II, those substances which can be more toxic upon release become surrounded by other, less toxic molecules that help them pass safely out of the body. Thorne MediClear assists both of these actions with appropriate liver detoxification nutrients, vitamins, and minerals. Green tea and milk thistle are two of the botanicals included in the formula that support the liver during the cleansing process. You’ll get bioavailable and easy to absorb vitamins and minerals such as pyridoxal 5'-phosphate (active vitamin B6), methylcobalamin (active vitamin B12), L-5-MTHF (active folate), and high-quality absorbable glycinate chelates from Albion Laboratories.



    MediClear Elimination Diet
    Thorne has created the MediClear Program to assist detoxification and allergy elimination. The MediClear Program is based on scientific research about how the body detoxes and the kind of support and protection it needs during the process. Conventional, harsh detox products release toxins too fast without protecting the body’s systems. Thorne’s MediClear products are different. They provide a gentle, science-based approach to internal cleansing while promoting optimal liver function. The pea and rice protein included in this dietary supplement are used because they are less likely to cause allergic reactions than dairy or soy proteins. Green tea delivers powerful antioxidant support for the liver. Milk thistle is a botanical known to promote healthy liver function. Grape seed phytosome helps strengthen the tissues and blood vessels in the liver. Sulforaphane glucosinolate (SGS) is a powerful, liver health promoting antioxidant that is crucial to making this one of the best cleansing products available.

    Liver Detox Smoothie
    Even though MediClear has a pleasant taste on its own when mixed with water or juice, you might want to try this recipe for some variety. The Chocolate-Almond Delight smoothie is easy to make, nutritious, and delicious. Combine 2 scoops of MediClear SGS in Chocolate flavor, 1 small banana, 1 tablespoon of almond butter, 4 to 6 ice cubes (or less if you want to freeze the banana first), and 10 ounces of water. Enjoy! You might forget you’re detoxing!

    When to Liver Detox
    There are some important signs that indicate when the liver is not functioning at its best: poor digestion, bloating, gas, intestinal discomfort, and fatigue. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, it might be time for a liver detox. Be aware that jumping in feet first, so to speak, for a liver detox is not necessarily the best idea. You’ll get the best long-term results and be less likely to experience unwanted short-term results if you take it slow and gentle with a product like this high-quality MediClear SGS protein powder that provides your liver and your body with the nutrients, vitamins, and minerals it needs during the detoxification and cleansing process.

    The liver and other organs of elimination in the body are challenged by environmental and diet-related toxins, as well as the inability of nutrient-deficient vegetables, grains, and fruits to provide all the nutrients that are necessary for detoxification. MediClear-SGS is a low-allergenic rice-and-pea-protein-based supplement that is formulated to support liver and colon detoxification. It offers essential nutrient cofactors and a complete range of vitamins and minerals in their most absorbable, tissue-ready forms. MediClear-SGS offers enhanced liver support by adding sulforaphane glucosinolate (SGS) – a natural substance from the seeds and sprouts of select broccoli varietals. SGS provides effective up-regulation of the body's natural phase II detoxification enzymes, and is an indirect antioxidant that provides long-lasting cell protection from free-radical damage.

    • A high concentration of proteins aids in tissue repair and regeneration. The amino acids in these proteins – along with the additional amino acids glycine, N-acetylcysteine, taurine, and glutathione – aid in the detoxification and elimination of harmful substances from the body.*
    • Green tea phytosome provides potent antioxidant and liver-protective activity.
    • Milk thistle extract is one of the best-known botanicals for liver support.
    • Curcumin (as the well-absorbed Meriva phytosome) helps provide a balanced inflammatory response to toxic insults to the body.
    • Sulforaphane glucosinolate (SGS) from broccoli seed extract provides phase II liver support and long-lasting cell protection from free-radical damage.
    Health-care practitioners know that many challenges to health can arise when a patient's liver is not functioning as it should, such as poor digestion, imbalances in intestinal bacteria, and fatigue. MediClear-SGS includes beneficial detoxification nutrient cofactors, as well as an array of extra nutrients and botanicals.

    MediClear-SGS also contains curcumin, green tea, and grape seed extracts in phytosome form for enhanced absorption and optimal delivery to the tissues. Phytosomes are specific plant extracts bound to phospholipids, which greatly increases the absorption and blood levels of the desired botanical constituents.

    MediClear-SGS contains the vitamins and minerals that support the liver's detoxification actions. These nutrients are provided in the most absorbable, best utilized forms, pyridoxal 5'-phosphate (active vitamin B6), L-5-MTHF (active folate), methylcobalamin (active vitamin B12), and well-absorbed mineral chelates from Albion Laboratories.

    In the liver's phase I detoxification process, harmful and unwanted fat-soluble substances are converted to intermediate metabolites by a group of enzymes called cytochrome p450 enzymes. The intermediate metabolites are often more reactive and potentially more toxic than the original substances. The liver's phase II detoxification process involves the attachment of other molecules onto these intermediate metabolites, which makes them non-toxic and water-soluble, thus allowing their elimination via the urine or intestines.

    Rice and pea protein are used in MediClear-SGS because of their low incidence of allergenicity. It is far more likely for dairy or soy protein to initiate an allergic reaction. Using rice and pea proteins facilitates the elimination of most allergenic proteins from the diet, while maintaining high-quality protein intake.

    Thorne Research's Mission
    At Thorne Research, their mission is to enhance the health and well-being of people by providing superior dietary supplements that have the highest level of quality and purity – thereby creating the most respected and valued company in the dietary supplement industry.

    The Thorne Difference.
    For more than 25 years, Thorne has relentlessly pursued the highest possible quality and bioavailability in dietary supplements. At Thorne, they actually manufacture products that they sell – a key difference that allows Thorne to control every aspect of the manufacturing process and ensure that every Thorne product is in pure, completely hypoallergenic form, and without the common additives, flowing agents, and binders used throughout the industry.

    A few other companies have tried to do what Thorne does, and many others claim to have the same philosophy and quality, but nobody has been able to duplicate what Thorne's clients call "Thorne Quality." Thorne has changed the industry in many ways over the past two decades, and they continue to raise the bar and set new standards in product formulation, raw material purity, manufacturing, and quality control.

    Thorne's Commitment to Purity
    Practitioners have become accustomed to seeing the vague "We use only the purest ingredients" in the promotional materials of almost every dietary supplement company. Perhaps these companies truly believe that. Perhaps they don't know any better. Nevertheless, Thorne Research, for more than 25 years, has been the standard by which companies in the industry are judged for product purity. Practitioners rely on Thorne as the company they trust for their extremely allergic, chemically sensitive, and immune-compromised patients.

    Ingredients You Don't Want
    Magnesium Stearate: Good for speed-hungry encapsulating machines. Not necessarily good for you. Manufacturing encapsulated dietary supplements isn't easy. Pure powdered ingredients are difficult to mix because they are either extremely dry, sticky with botanical oils, or attract unwanted moisture. So most manufacturers add magnesium stearate and other agents such as lactose and dextrose to make the powder flow quickly and easily through their high-volume machines. Problem is, these additives may compromise the bioavailability of the nutrients in the supplement, and might cause allergenic problems. At Thorne, they take a different approach.

    Thorne will never utilize large fatty acid excipients in its manufacturing processes – ingredients such as magnesium stearate or stearic acid. These excipients are utilized as flowing agents to ensure that maximum productivity is obtained from capsuling and tableting machines. There are documented detrimental effects directly attributed to long chain fatty acids utilized as manufacturing flowing agents. Every qualified pharmaceutical compounder recognizes that large fatty acids, such as magnesium stearate, can interfere with product dissolution and influence absorption. Virtually all companies, because of the economic impact, ignore this data. As with most industries, the bottom line dictates the level of quality. The dietary supplement industry has one exception: Thorne Research, the company that does not compromise. Nevertheless, if a company cannot manufacture products without using detrimental excipients, they should not allude to being either "hypoallergenic" or "pure."

    The Bottom Line?
    Thorne is the only hypoallergenic dietary supplement manufacturer with the highest degree of purity that you – and your most severely allergic, chemically sensitive, and immune-compromised patients – can truly trust.

    Quality Ingredients: A Higher Standard
    At Thorne, they are committed to setting a higher standard of quality when it comes to ingredients. To produce their truly hypoallergenic encapsulated supplements, Thorne uses only the purest and finest ingredients available.

    Every manufacturer has two basic options when purchasing raw materials: purchase either truly pure raw materials, or purchase raw materials to which substances have been added to facilitate manufacturing. This fundamental dilemma translates to these very typical questions: "Do I purchase pure vitamin C or vitamin C with additives?" "Do I purchase pure B vitamins or coated B vitamins for taste masking?" "Do I purchase pure enzymes such as pancreatin, pepsin, and bromelain or enzymes diluted with lactose?"

    There are few commercial sources for vitamins B12, D, K, or biotin that are not diluted with substances such as lactose, cornstarch, and preservatives such as BHT. That's why Thorne developed methods that allow them to use pure, undiluted sources of these nutrients – and many others. It's just one more example that when it comes to quality, what everyone else accepts as an industry standard isn't good enough. While some companies say they are raising their standards....at Thorne they set them.

    WARNINGS

    Allergy Warning
    This product is contraindicated in an individual with a history of hypersensitivity to any of its ingredients.

    MediClear-SGS contains green tea phytosome, curcumin phytosome, and grape seed phytosome - plant extracts complexed with phosphatidylcholine, which is derived from soy. Phosphatidylcholine contains no soy protein. There are no other soy-based ingredients in MediClear-SGS.

    Purity
    This product does not contain wheat, gluten, corn, yeast, egg, dairy products, or artificial colors, artificial sweeteners, or artificial flavors. This product also does not contain lactose, palmitic acid, magnesium stearate, or stearic acid.

    Pregnancy Warning
    If pregnant, consult your health-care practitioner before using this product.

    Interactions
    Folinic acid and 5-methyltetrahydrofolate supplementation is not recommended concurrent with methotrexate cancer therapy, as they can interfere with methotrexate's anti-neoplastic activity; however, these folate sources have not been shown to interfere with the anti-inflammatory activity of methotrexate. An individual taking methotrexate for psoriasis or rheumatoid arthritis can safely take a supplement containing folate.

    Curcumin has been shown to reduce the therapeutic efficacy of cyclophosphamide (Cytoxan) in animal studies. In vitro research revealed that curcumin decreased camptothecin-induced death of cultured breast cancer cells. Curcumin might also interfere with the absorption and efficacy of the chemotherapy drug irinotecan, used to treat colon cancer. The concurrent use of curcumin with these agents should be avoided.

    Other Warning
    This product is intended to be utilized in conjunction with a complete dietary program. Do not use in diets supplying less than 600 calories per day without complete medical supervision.
