Liver syrups support the functioning of liver. The major ingredients of liver syrups include globe artichoke, herbs milk thistle and dandelion. Some more components of liver tonic include vitamin B group, and the amino acids like cysteine, glutamine, glycine, glutathione and taurine. Some of the benefits of liver tonic in improving the liver functioning influence certain processes. These processes include efficient loss of weight and burning of fat, less retention of fluid, decreased irritable bowel syndrome, regulation of triglycerides and cholesterol, and improved gall bladder functioning.
Livatone Plus is liver syrup that consists of liver herb called St. Mary’s thistle in combination with aminoacids glycine, taurine, glutamine and cysteine. This syrup consists of important vitamins like vitamin B and lipotrophic factors like inositol, biotin and folic acid. This liver syrup also consists of green tea, vitamin E and C, natural beta carotene and antioxidants which help in reduction of damage due to free-radicals. The liver functioning is improved by the components like broccoli powder and lecithin in the Livatone Plus syrup.
The phase I and phase II detoxification pathways occurring in the liver are supported by the necessary nutrients that are present in the Livatone plus. The amino acids mentioned above are helpful in breaking down of drugs and toxins as well as in carrying out effective metabolism in the liver. Glutamine is beneficial in the phase II detoxification of liver and is required in higher quantities by the people who consume alcohol as it decreases the temptation to drink alcohol. Glutamine is also helpful in leaky gut condition where the indigested food is absorbed into the liver.
Glutathione is an antioxidant produced in the liver and helps in neutralizing the free-radicals that damage the cells. Large amounts of glutathione are stored in the liver detoxifying the unnecessary compounds and excrete them through the bile. Taurine is the aminoacid that is required by the liver for removing chemicals such as aldehydes, alcohols, chlorine, ammonia and petroleum based solvents.
Cysteine is a sulfur containing aminoacid that is the precursor of glutathione. Cysteine and glycine are necessary for the phase II detoxification of pathways in the liver. The damage to the liver cells that might occur by the chemical overload is reduced by the antioxidant vitamin C. It helps in neutralizing the free-radicals that are produced during the phase I detoxification process. Vitamin C helps the liver to improve immunity and control cholesterol levels.
Vitamin E protects the cell membranes from becoming rancid and prevents the oxidation of cell membranes by the free-radicals. Vitamin E is beneficial in handling the fatty liver condition where oxidized unhealthy fats are deposited in the liver cells. The toxic effects of alcohol and smoking are reduced by vitamin B1, B6, folic acid, B12 and B3. Riboflavin is helpful in the phase I detoxification of liver and is important for the generation of body energy. Vitamin B6 blocks the production of toxic homocysteine that enhances the cardiovascular disease. Vitamin B12 is necessary for the liver to carryout methylation that inactivates the hormone estrogen and increases the bile flow. A research study has shown that calcium pantothenate or vitamin B5 accelerates liver detoxification of acetaldehyde following the alcohol intake. Vitamin B5 is largely necessary for the people who take excess alcohol.
