Liver Support contains the amino acid N-acetyl-L-cysteine, a key component of glutathione—a tripeptide that plays a significant role in detoxification and antioxidant support. Liver Support also contains a combination
of alpha-lipoic acid, silymarin from milk thistle, and selenium for support of antioxidant activity, regeneration of other antioxidants, and promotion of healthy immune function.*

The liver is the body’s major metabolic organ. It processes, packages, stores, and ships out carbohydrates, fats, proteins, and micronutrients. It is responsible for the breakdown and elimination of alcohol, toxins, hormones,
and medications, as well as for the synthesis of vital proteins, such as albumin, prealbumin, and clotting factors. It may be stated that the health of the body depends on the health of the liver. Research suggests that providing targeted nutrition supplementation may help support liver function and health.*
N-Acetyl-Cysteine (NAC) An acetylated derivative of the sulfur-containing amino acid L-cysteine, NAC promotes the synthesis of glutathione—a tripeptide that is active in detoxification and antioxidant systems. Glutathione also supports a healthy defense against hepatotoxic environmental pollutants, gamma-radiation, and other potential toxins.*[1,2] Alpha-Lipoic Acid Sometimes referred to as thioctic acid, alpha-lipoic acid is both water- and fat-soluble. It supports glutathione, helps regenerate antioxidant vitamins C and E, helps maintain the ratio of reduced to oxidized CoQ10 in the mitochondria, and helps support healthy levels of nitric oxide in the liver and kidney.
Kupffer cells play a crucial role in maintaining normal structure and function in the liver. Supporting their function and the body’s normal inflammatory response in turn supports liver health overall.* Upon studying targeted nutrition support for liver health, physician and researcher Dr. Burton M. Berkson chose to combine alpha-lipoic acid, silymarin, and selenium to obtain a balanced and low-cost approach to liver support. These three ingredients plus NAC are all present in Liver Support to support liver health, antioxidant activity, and the body’s natural immune defenses.*
