The liver is the primary filter for toxins within the
body. Accumulated chemicals and toxins can
adversly affect the proper structure and function of
Livdetox is a formulation of key nutrients and herbs
including choline, betaine, methionine, dandelion,
milk thistle, artichoke and curcumin, each selected
to support healthy liver detoxification.
Livdetox tablets, provided by Douglas Laboratories,
contain several nutrient and herbal ingredients shown to maintain liver
structure and function in response to environmental toxins.
Livdetox contains several dietary constituents that
have been shown to support against various toxic environmental
stresses that affect the function and structure of the liver.
Choline, betaine, and methionine are involved in methyl group
metabolism, which is essential for normal liver function. Choline, as
an integral component of lecithin (phosphatidylcholine), is used for
synthesis and maintenance of normal cell membranes. Choline deficiency
results in steep increases in serum enzyme markers of liver
injury. Animals deficient in choline and inositol have an excess liver
accumulation of fat. Inositol and choline supplementation of animals
prone to fatty livers prevents this liver dysfunction.
Taraxacum (dandelion) has been traditionally used as a detoxifying
herb working principally on the liver and gallbladder. This herb is
thought to stimulate the elimination of toxins and is one of the
strongest cholagogues and choleretics known.
Silybum marianum, milk thistle, is rich in flavonoids known collectively
as silymarin. Silymarin has also been shown to support healthy
liver function under a variety of environmental stress factors such as
alcohol consumption and exposure to pollutants and other potentially
harmful substances. Silymarin compounds are known for their
antioxidant activities preventing damaging lipid peroxidation by
excessive free radical levels.
Cynara scolymus (artichoke) has been used medicinally for centuries.
Similar to milk thistle, it is beneficial to the liver as it protects
it against environmental and infection-generated toxins. Extracts of
artichoke can stimulate the flow of bile from the liver and prevent
cholestasis.† It also can protect liver cells from oxidative damage.
Cynara’s usefulness in liver support is thought to be due to its content
of caffeoylquinic acids, e.g. cynarin, and flavonoids.
Curcumin has been demonstrated to be a potent antioxidant, and
may also provide important support for healthy liver function.
