With the liver as the body’s primary metabolic organ for processing micronutrients, toxins, hormones, alcohol, and medications – ensuring the optimal health of the liver should be a priority in healing. The health of one’s body does largely depend on the health and functioning of the liver and the gut. 

The supplements in Xymogen’s Liver Protect Formula are clinically proven to support liver function and optimal health. 

Liver Protect contains:

  • Selenium (100 mcg) 
  • Milk Thistle Extract (standardized to contain 30% silybins) 
  • ALA (Alpha-Lipoic Acid)
  • N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine 

Liver Protect is available in 60 and 120 capsules, with a recommended daily dose of 1 capsule two times per day. Those already taking prescription medication should discuss the potential interactions of NAC, ALA, and Milk Thistle with their doctor, healthcare practitioner, naturopath, or physician. 

Liver Protect supports:

  • Healthy liver function and detoxification 
  • Cytokine balance; reducing pro-inflammatory cytokines that can cause auto-immune driven illness or disorder, while improving anti-inflammatory cytokine activity
  • Glutathione production, as the “master antioxidant” 
  • Liver tissue

Aiming to comprise the best supplements for liver health, while retaining efficacy and a low-cost approach, Dr. Burton M. Berkson selected the three primary ingredients in Liver Protect, along with NAC to fully support liver health and detoxification. 

Selenium – a crucial co-enzyme factor for glutathione peroxidase antioxidant, selenium also supports a healthy cytokine balance by affecting the IL-6 transcription on Kupffer cells (macrophages). These cells play a role in helping to maintain the normal structure and function of the liver, especially during times of stress (infection, medication, alcohol, toxins). 

NAC (N-Acetyl-Cysteine) – now regarded as one of the most beneficial antioxidants, this tri-peptide is important to glutathione as a defense against hepatotoxic pollutants, including environmental toxins. NAC promotes the synthesis of glutathione and also acts as a chelator of heavy metals, and environmental toxins.

Alpha-Lipoic Acid – ALA is both water and fat-soluble and helps maintain the ratio of CoQ10 in mitochondria while supporting healthy levels of nitric oxide in the liver and kidneys. Much like NAC, ALA is also known for its “detox” properties, mostly tied to the excretion of hepatotoxic pollutants/toxins through antioxidant pathways. 

Milk Thistle Extract – the active component in milk thistle, “silymarin,” has a long history of use – specifically with regard to liver health. The action of milk thistle extract within the liver includes helping to maintain normal levels of fatty acid peroxidation, stimulating an immune response, and promoting the normal regeneration of liver tissue. Milk thistle extract is known to be well tolerated.
