Don't Forget Your Liver!


Wednesday, July 12th 2006

Why is your liver important?

Each minute nearly 2 litres of blood pass through the liver for detoxification. When working properly, it clears most impurities before the blood re-enters circulation.

Every day a healthy liver also produces a quart of bile, which carries toxins to the intestine for elimination.

Through a complexity of enzymatic processes, a healthy liver neutralises toxins or converts them into fat or water soluble forms to be eliminated from the body.

Super Thisilyn - Your Liver's Best Friend

Nature's Way Super Thisilyn in Vegetarian capsules is the ultimate combination of maximum absorption milk thistle, supportive herbs, amino acids and food based nutrients to support healthy liver function and detoxification. Super Thisilyn may assist where acute or chronic liver disease has compromised overall liver health and function.

Ingredients in Super Thisilyn and their role

Thisilyn's patented processing significantly improves the absorption of its bioflavonoid complex - silymarin. Thisilyn is twice as bioavailable as other milk thistle brands - meaning twice as much silymarin actually reaches the liver. Silymarin promotes healthy liver function.

Also included are the following great liver ingredients: Artichoke is both protective and restorative to liver tissues, helps promote bile production, enhances excretion of cholesterol and flushing of accumulated fluids. Turmeric helps protect the liver, L-Methionine and N-Acetyl cystine are sulphur-containing essential amino acids. Dandelion root is used to assist with liver and kidney detoxification, disturbances in bile flow and loss of appetite.

Protectamins are a blend of concentrated cruciferous vegetable extracts containing Sulforaphane, an antioxidant and potent stimulator of natural detoxification enzymes in the body. Alpha lipoic acid is a powerful antioxidant, regenerator of other antioxidants and an energy enhancing enzyme.
