Your Liver- Why is it so Important?

October 13, 2009

Without a good, strong liver, the brain, heart, lungs, kidneys, and all the glands become vulnerable to various toxins, drugs, chemicals, and poisons. Very few diseases can be established in the body as long as the liver is healthy and able to perform its full function. One of the most effective means of protecting our liver is by taking a complimentary combination of antioxidants. Antioxidant formulas are not only designed to significantly help protect the liver, but to help cleanse and strengthen it as well.

Our liver’s health is one our most important assets. A proper combination of antioxidants is highly effective in guarding our liver from a wide spectrum of illnesses caused by toxic chemicals, poisons, poor diet, polluted air and water, stressors, free radicals, and more. Not only that, antioxidants can stimulate our body’s immune response to help overcome existing disorders, for they can help normalize various hormone-like chemicals that control pain, fever, and inflammation. Antioxidants are also effective in combating cell-damaging free radicals, which are known to contribute towards aging and disease.

Studies have shown that different antioxidants are unique and each may have a specific function in the body. Each antioxidant is synergistic and will work most effectively when combined with certain other antioxidants. With the proper combination, they can perform a wide range of metabolic activities, free radical scavenging, and preventative actions. This antioxidant formula uses a blend of antioxidants specifically designed to assist the liver in overcoming a vast array of physiological stress agents and to help avert the effects of aging and illness.

The Synergists

Selenium and Vitamin E interact to provide strong protection against oxidative damage to the liver. Vitamins C and E work as a team to produce an antioxidant effect that is far greater than any one individual antioxidant; they also help to protect each other from the onslaught of free radicals. Selenium and Vitamin A work together to help prevent cancer. Selenium interacts with glutathione (GSH), which is a vital component in the production of glutathione peroxidase, an enzyme that is essential for life. The liver can only survive for about 3 days without the action of GSH; hence, this antioxidant formula contains the essential supportive components of GSH activity – Selenium, GSH, L-Cysteine, Coenzyme Q10, and Beta-carotene. In a recent study on GSH and aging, it was found that GSH concentrations are positively correlated with age and good health. Chromium seems to have a regulatory role in glucose and insulin metabolism. Without glucose balance, we become vulnerable to all sorts of diseases, including: Candidiasis, hypoglycemia, and a substantial increase in free radical activity. Therefore, adequate supplies of chromium assist all other antioxidants by reducing the need to battle free radicals. Both vitamin C and coenzyme Q10 interact with vitamin E to regenerate its antioxidant form. When there are enough of the other antioxidants, such as these bioflavonoids, selenium, and beta-carotene, CoQ10 can significantly reduce free-radical damage in the liver, kidney, and heart cells. As an antioxidant, lipoic (thioctic) acid is synergistic with vitamins C and E, and they work together to produce a stronger antioxidant effect.

Silymarin, curcumin bioflavonoids, lipoic acid, glutathione, selenium, and L-Cysteine prominently help to detoxify, strengthen, and protect the liver – this is a brilliant combination. Ginkgo Biloba is well known to strengthen the walls of even the smallest blood vessels and capillaries; it is also known as the most effective nutrient for improving blood circulation. Another important antioxidant is lipoic (thioctic) acid. In addition to its importance in the production of cellular metabolism, energy production, and its ability to detoxify tissue of heavy metals, lipoic acid is particularly important in protecting the integrity of neural tissues.
