Advanced Liver Detox
Why do we need Liver Detox?
The liver is a vital organ involved in the human digestive system. It performs over 500 varieties of functions, including metabolism, detoxification, protein synthesis, decomposition of red blood cells, hormone production and converting sugar into glycogen. The liver is also responsible for processing many vitamins and nutrients into a form that can be utilized by the body. Heavy use of chemicals in modern living generates numerous toxic substances to our bodies, which imposes a heavy load on the liver. It is critical to your well being to protect the liver and maintain its function at optimal level.
Why do we choose to take Andorra International’s Advanced Liver Detox?
Andorra International’s Advanced Liver Detox contains 9 forms of natural and effective ingredients that help our bodies to regulate and maintain the healthy liver function.
Milk Thistle Extract:
Over the past forty years, intensive chemical, pharmacological and clinical research has confirmed the effectiveness of milk thistle in a wide range of human liver-related and non-liver-related conditions. Literally hundreds of modern research studies have confirmed the remarkable ability of milk thistle to protect the liver and the body against virtually all types of damage.
Additionally, the United States National Library of Medicine and the National Institutes of Health (NIH) have catalogued more than 400 scientific studies of milk thistle and its active compounds in their medicine database. These studies reflect what generations past knew and depended on – that milk thistle is one of the most valuable and beneficial herbal remedies and treatments available anywhere in the world.
The milk thistle extract is commonly used to treat mushroom poisoning, alcoholic cirrhosis, chronic hepatitis, drug and alcohol-induced liver damage and acute viral hepatitis, just to name a few.
Choline is similar to the B vitamins. It can be made in the liver. It is also found in foods such as muscle meats, fish, nuts and beans. Choline is used to improve conditions of liver disease, such as chronic hepatitis and cirrhosis.
N-Acetyl L-Cysteine (NAC):
NAC is listed on the World Health Organization (WHO)’s list of essential medicines, as of the one most important medication needed in a basic health system. NAC is also commonly used for its antioxidant and liver protection effect.
Turmeric Extract (Curcumin):
In India and other parts of Asia, turmeric is used to treat many health conditions. It is believed to have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. As a substance in Turmeric, Curcumin helps to reduce liver inflammation.
Proprietary Herb Blends:
Andorra’s Proprietary Herb Blends include Dandelion Root Extract, Artichoke Flower Extract, Schisandra Berry Extract, L-Methionine and Burdock Root Extract. These optimal blends of the best quality herbs help to maintain and keep your liver as well as gut’s healthy function.
