The liver plays dozens of roles in immune health. It repackages
nutrients, it produces and releases hormones, and it breaks down toxins
for elimination and manufactures protein structures for hormones,
enzymes, neurotransmitters and tissue repair. It is central for overall
strength and good liver support is vitally important, especially for
children with compromised digestive systems.
One consequence of liver stress is insufficient bile production. Bile, produced by the liver, (but stored in the gall bladder,) emulsifies fat which allows for its proper digestion. Bile is also important in preventing constipation, candidiasis, and helps provide the correct environmental pH for beneficial gut flora to flourish. Bile also helps reduce food allergy and food sensitivities. Other symptoms of liver stress include dark eye circles under the eyes and skin issues such as eczema and dermatitis.
There are four products that we'd recommend for reviving a poorly functioning liver, or one that is over-stressed with de-toxifying. If someone uses all 4 of them for 3 months, their liver should be back in good shape.
The number before the product name is the number of bottles to use per month.
1-3 bottles per month UltraLiver 12
1-9 bottles per month Glutathione Specialist
1-4 bottles per month Nymsar
UltraLiver12 builds upon the established antioxidant combination of alpha-lipoid acid, silymarin and selenium originally developed by Burt Berkson M.D. for the highly successful treatment of hepatitis C and acute liver degeneration. It brings together therapeutic levels of these 3 much researched hepato-protective nutrients, in their most effective and absorbable forms, with the addition of 5 other liver protective antioxidants including a patented German CoQ10.
In addition to antioxidants UltraLiver12 provides cell membrane stabilizing agents, bile secretion enhancing compounds, and nutrients that prevent depletion of endogenous antioxidants such as glutathione. UltraLiver12 works to protect the liver from free radical damage, increase the levels of other fundamental antioxidants, interfere with virus proliferation and provide your liver with comprehensive nutritional support.Serving size: 3 Capsules (2,100mg) Servings per container 30

LIPOIC ACID TIMES 40
According to Dr. Berkson, (the above mentioned NM based MD, University Professor and Author who has studied Lipoic Acid’s action in liver regeneration in humans after “normally fatal” amanita poisoning). Lipoic Acid properties include:
• Free radical scavenger
• Antioxidant recycler (converts used antioxidants back to usable form)
• Major Glutathione Generator
• Rate limiting factor for the production of energy from food
• Stimulates Organ regeneration
• Prevents ischemia reperfusion injury
• Heavy Metal chelator
• Restores cell function
• Modifier of gene expression
• Enhances insulin sensitivity
While little known to the general public, there are thousands of clinical studies published on the wellness boosting and anti-aging effects of Lipoic Acid, and the benefits outlined here are well established. “In fact, to our knowledge there are few compounds as multifaceted as lipoic acid as a bioactive agent.
It is an inducer of cellular signaling pathways, an insulin mimetic, a hypotriglyceridemic agent, a vasorelaxant/anti-hypertensive compound, a metal chelator and an adjuvant for neurocognitive function.” From the published study Alpha-lipoic acid as a dietary supplement: Molecular mechanisms and therapeutic potential. Shay et al; 14 Dr. Aubrey de Grey (world expert on aging) on the benefits of R-Lipoic Acid “...it would not add a 1,000 years to our life spans but probably at least 10 years.” The best natural source of RLA is spinach but you would have to eat 500 lbs/day in order to obtain a 100 mg dose. This is not very practical and no research has shown that extremely low amounts of RLA has any effect whatsoever.
The anti-aging and other benefits are achieved by higher doses in the range of 400 - 800mg/day. Your daily 3 capsules of UL12 provides the equivalent of 8 times this amount – when you take into account how the proprietary form of Lipoic Acid used is absorbed (see below).
Types of Lipoic Acid
There are four forms of alpha lipoic acid available on the market: (R lipoic acid, S lipoic acid, the combination R/S lipoic acid (known as Alpha Lipoic Acid) and Stabilized R Lipoic Acid). S Lipoic Acid is the synthetic form – and the form most used by nutritional companies.
R Lipoic Acid is the natural form and the obvious choice for nutritional use – but it has two major drawbacks: stability and bioavailability, without special processing, R-Lipoic Acid is unstable and difficult to absorb. In fact, only a very small percentage of unstabilized R-Lipoic Acid is actually absorbed.
Newest and Best Lipoic Acid
Bio-Enhanced® R-Lipoic Acid raises blood levels of Lipoic Acid FORTY times over a similar amount of RLA.
A pivotal study by a team of US researchers (including Lester Packer, PhD – one of the world’s foremost authorities on the role of antioxidants in clinical medicine - showed that Stabilized R-Lipoic Acid is the most bioavailable (i.e. best absorbed) oral form of Lipoic Acid on the market.
This human trial found that people who took Stabilized R-Lipoic Acid (also known as NaRALA, N-RLA and Bio-Enhanced R-Lipoic Acid) achieved blood concentrations of Lipoic Acid a full 40 times higher than those who took standard (unstabilized) RLA. 1 In other words, 100mg of Bio-Enhanced R-Lipoic Acid is equivalent to 4,000mg of the previous best form of R-Lipoic Acid – and certainly a therapeutic amount.
Lipoic Acid and Liver Repair
The first large human clinical studies using ALA in the United States were carried out by Drs. Fredrick C. Bartter, Burton M. Berkson, MD, MS, PhD, and associates from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in the 1970s.
When administered to 79 people with severe and terminal liver damage, at various hospitals around the United States, 75 recovered full liver function. ALA has also shown the ability to restore liver enzymes levels back to normal levels.
Lipoic Acid and Life Extension
Most experts on aging no longer consider increased longevity (increasing the maximum lifespan of 90% of the population of a test species) as the desired endpoint for aging studies.
It is far more relevant to find compounds and methods to increase the “health-span” (improving life quality for longer periods of time rather than the dramatic decline and loss of function occurring in most humans between the 5th and 8th decades of life).
One recent study by Rick Weindruch and Tom Prolla’s group at the University of Wisconsin showing lipoic acid altered gene transcription profiles in aging mouse cerebellums as effectively as caloric restriction (the most widely established method of life extension in animal models).
Lipoic Acid and Alzheimer’s Disease
Life extension (increasing the life span) alone is not the “gold standard” or even the primary goal since long lived people would almost all be susceptible to and to ultimately die from Alzheimer’s disease or cancer.
Therefore, if lipoic acid can help protect geriatrics from either disease then it could qualify as an “anti-aging” compound. Our study below was based on a human clinical trial of AD patients in Germany and showed that lipoic acid slowed the progression of AD.
Lipoic Acid and Inflammation
“In another set of experiments, we found that treatment of mice with alpha-lipoic acid strongly inhibited the production of adhesion molecules in response to a bacterial toxin called LPS. Moreover, alpha-lipoic acid significantly protected against death induced by large doses of LPS (also called “septic shock”).
These studies provide the first evidence that alpha-lipoic acid inhibits LPS-induced endothelial activation in animals, suggesting a possible role for alpha-lipoic acid in the prevention and treatment of atherosclerosis and inflammatory conditions in humans.” Weijian Zhang, M.D., Ph.D. LPI Assistant Professor (Sr. Res.) LPI, Oregon State University.
Lipoic Acid and Diabetes
Numerous studies show that ALA is useful for the treatment of diabetes mellitus and syndrome X because it increased cellular glucose utilization . And significantly reduces insulin resistance. Diabetic neuropathy originates from a decrease in blood flow to various organs. This results in an accumulation of free radicals that can destroy nerve function. In one study, ALA brought about a significant reduction of neuropathic symptoms in 23 patients .
This was accomplished by abolishing the products of lipid peroxidation and increasing the entrance of glucose into the cell . Burt Berkson, M.D., PhD - why Alpha Lipoic Acid is NOT a drug: “Well you know originally I was the Food and Drug Administration principal investigator for lipoic acid as a drug, and I think, I could be wrong, but I think the, I won't name the pharmaceutical company that was working with it. But I suspect they were having trouble working out a deal with the Germans who own a patent on it.
also, and this is my own opinion, I think that you know the Mayo Clinic studied it for the reversal of diabetic neuropathies and they had fantastic results, amazing results. You know people grew new blood vessels, new nerves into their toes and did not require amputation. And then they stopped doing it. My own personal opinion is probably the drug company thought well, you know, if we put this out for diabetes it will also help liver disease and it will help so many other things.
It's just too good of a drug and it does too many things and you know we'll lose money on our products.” An Interview between Kirkham R. Hamilton, PA-C and Burt Berkson, M.D., PhD. January 22, 2010 available on…www.prescription2000.com UltraLiver12 provides the equivalent of 6 grams of regular ALA and 1 gram of CoQ10 per serving with many important cofactors.
(Standardized 30:1 Extract, Yielding 80% Silymarin) Silymarin is the mixed extract of the milk thistle plant (sylibum marianum) which has been used for hundreds of years as a treatment for liver and gall bladder disease. The liver is the body’s second largest organ and is in effect the body’s toxic waste disposal plant and chemical factory, and Milk Thistle is said to have no pharmaceutical equivalent (except for perhaps Lipoic Acid) in the remarkable way in which it supports the liver.
Its assistance is very valuable in all instances where the digestive tract is under stress. Notably in the case of leaky gut syndrome whereby the liver will be overloaded and can use the nutritional support that Milk thistle provides.
Historically milk thistle was recommended as a remedy against gallstones, jaundice, spleen disorders and bronchitis. Recent research indicates that milk thistle is a “smart herb”, able to promote new cell growth where needed for repair, but slow or stop cell division in tumor tissue; likewise, it can allow activity of certain enzymes, but inhibit others, as the situation requires.
Emerging evidence suggests that milk thistle extract is a COX-2 inhibitor-another example of its selective action. Many medicinal uses have been validated in modern studies. Milk thistle extract (silymarin) and its main component silibinin are now attracting more and more attention as effective adjuvant therapy for liver dysfunction, including cirrhosis and hepatitis C.
Silibinin was first extracted from silymarin in 1980 and today higher doses are becoming more affordable.
In Germany, milk thistle extract has been officially approved for the treatment of both chronic and acute liver disorders by the world-renowned Commission E. Some American doctors favor the standardized German product (silibinin) for the treatment of hepatitis and cirrhosis. Research on silibinin, however, seems to confirm that silibinin is approximately equivalent to silymarin in effectiveness. This may be because silymarin has within it other cofactors (isosilybin B. for example) that augment the effects of silibinin.
Milk thistle extract protects organs other than liver, especially the kidneys and the pancreas. Its support against toxic and ischemic damage is now well documented.
More recently, both silymarin and silibinin have shown as promising natural agents in the prevention and treatment of cardiovascular disorders, and diabetes.
Standardized milk thistle extract (silymarin) usually consists of 60-70% silibinin. Silibinin’s main hepato-protective property is that of free radical scavenger and membrane stabilizer.
Other important antioxidant effects of silibinin are due to its influence on the Superoxide Dismutase. Superoxide Dismutase is an enzyme that repairs cells and reduces the damage done to them by superoxide, the most common free radical in the body and the enzyme system associated with glutathione.
In addition, silymarin and silibinin actually help maintain a normal rate of protein synthesis in the liver, leading to more efficient cellular functions such as cell division. Silibinin and silymarin neutralize the toxins that destroy the cellular membrane systems and liver cell’s genetic material .
As it protects the liver from toxins and pollutants it also stimulates the production of new liver cells. It is considered a remarkable herb for relieving temporary discomforts associated with cirrhosis, alcoholic poisoning, jaundice, fatty liver, hepatitis and viral hepatitis.
Human viral hepatitis studies with silymarin show normalization of liver enzymes, reduction of bilirubin levels, and shorter hospital stays .
It increases cellular glutathione levels and decreases tumor promoter activity. As a demulcent with mucilaginous properties, Milk Thistle soothes mucous membranes from irritating substances and helps to protect the intestinal lining (reducing inflammation of the intestine), alleviating conditions such as irritable bowel syndrome and Crohn’s disease, as well as other inflammatory bowel disorders.
Milk Thistle helps regulate fat digestion and helps alleviate common stomach problems, including nausea, lack of appetite and heartburn, and it may also help ease abdominal bloating and fatigue.
Milk Thistle is thought to help protect Kuppfer cells (specialized immune cells in the liver) and may help destroy harmful cells that have entered blood circulation (a common issue with leaky gut).
Over the past 50 years more than 100,000 scientific papers, not to mention popular articles and books, have been written about Selenium. These publications continue to appear without showing any sign of diminution today. This makes Selenium one of the most highly researched minerals in nutrition.
Selenium and Liver Health
Selenium shows its importance in your fight against viruses, according to recent research at the U.S. Department of Agriculture. In selenium deficient mice a normally harmless virus mutated into a virulent one, inflicting damage on heart muscle. It seems that selenium may help curb viruses, from colds to Hepatitis.
Chinese scientists had noticed a similar effect with a virus that caused serious heart muscle inflammation and attributed the worse outbreaks to selenium deficiency.
Other studies indicate that certain viruses may deplete selenium in the host making it much easier for them to replicate. The addition of dietary selenium helps neutralize this viral strategy and slows down its reproduction mechanisms. Investigators believe that this gives the immune system a chance to control the hepatitis C or HIV disease process
Selenium and Immune Response
In a double-blind study of elderly people, researchers at the University of Brussels found taking 100mcg of selenium a day improved certain factors in immune functioning by 79 percent. One reason: The body needs selenium to produce a critical antioxidant enzyme. This enzyme, glutathione peroxidase, is responsible for destroying lipid-damaging peroxides and it helps detoxify cellular fats that otherwise lower immunity, foster cancer and destroy arteries.
In this role, selenium complements the anti-oxidizing function of vitamin E. Conversely, low levels of glutathione peroxidase lowers overall immunity, and its lack creates a climate for cancer and hastens the erosion of the arteries. Therefore, selenium is crucial in protecting the heart, liver and cardiovascular system. In the Penland study mentioned below, the high Selenium diet significantly elevated plasma Selenium and platelet glutathione peroxidase activity.
Whether selenium helps prevent heart disease is unclear. Some studies suggest that it does, but a recent Harvard University study found no link between blood levels of selenium and heart attacks in men.
Selenium and Better Moods
Low selenium can leak your energy, increase anxiety and put you out in the doldrums. USDA psychologist James G. Penland and colleague Finney found that men who boosted their intake of dietary selenium to 220 mcg daily felt less anxious and more energetic, confident and agreeable. Those with the most selenium in their red blood cells felt the best. Men who initially felt the worst improved the most.
Interestingly, Penland also found selenium triggered dramatic improvement in men showing no signs of selenium deficiency. He concluded many Americans aren’t getting enough selenium for peak well-being.
Welsh researchers documented the same mood lift in a double-blind study of men and women after taking 100 mcg of a selenium supplement daily.
Selenium and Aging Well
Residents of Norfolk, England are said to be among the longest living people in their county. Scientists believe it’s because of a higher than normal concentration of selenium in their soil, thus showing up in the food they eat. Within 3 days after taking Selenium, people with abnormal pH levels began to normalize at the proper 7.5 pH.
This is important because your body’s pH level to some degree effects all the other chemical reactions in the human body. It has also been reported that Selenium can help rid the body of parasites – this may be due to increased enzyme activity. Selenium also aids the body in the elimination of toxic minerals, like lead and especially fluoride.
Super-soluble CoEnzymeQ10, 18 times better absorbed ProCoQ10 is the most powerful and absorbable CoQ10 as proven in the latest in CoQ10 science — new to US markets. 18 times better absorbed and utilized than regular CoQ10 and at least twice as absorbable as the used-to-be newest and best quinols.
*Enhancement of Oral Bioavailability of Coenzyme Q10, published in Nutritional Research 26 (2006) 503-508. Human trials show that taking ProCoQ10 results in 18 times higher serum levels of CoQ10 than standard CoQ10. The solubility and absorbability of the CoQ10 in ProCoQ10 has been greatly increased through using “ester science” that gets the nutrients through the digestive system and into your cells.
Other human clinical trials show that at just 30mg a day, ProCoQ10 reduced daily DNA damage in humans by 51%, and shrank human skin wrinkles in 6 weeks. Japanese Human Clinical Study:
Oral Bioavailability of ProCoQ10 - Study Synopsis: Change in Blood Plasma levels of CoQ10 with single dose. Graph below shows concentration over next 48 hours.
CoQ10 is a “conditionally essential nutrient”, since the body does not make enough to meet the needs under certain conditions. It maintains energy levels and is an excellent antioxidant. CoQ10 production in the body slows down as we age, staring from the 20s.
In addition, there are many stress and disease conditions under which CoQ10 status is further compromised. Tissues and organs with high-energy requirements such as the heart, liver, skeletal muscle pancreas, and kidney are ones most affected when CoQ10 supply becomes low (Ernster and Dallner, 1995).
Co-Q10 and Heart Health
CoQ10 is highly concentrated in heart muscle due to its high energy requirements. For the past 20 years, much of the clinical research with CoQ10 has focused on heart disease.
For instance, congestive heart failure (from a wide variety of causes) has been strongly correlated with low blood and tissue levels of CoQ10. Indeed – the greater the CoQ10 deficiency the greater the severity of heart failure. CoQ10 deficiency is thought to play a role in all types of heart muscle dysfunction and thus appears to be a major treatable factor in the recovery and maintenance of heart health.
Congestive heart failure (CHF) and cardiomyopathy are among the major causes of morbidity and mortality in the US. Deficiencies of Co-Q10 and associated cardiovascular function, have been documented since the 1970s.
With low levels of CoQ10, the heart muscle is in a constant energy deficit – and thus its pumping power is weakened. Hard working muscle such as heart tissue is extremely vulnerable to low Co-Q10 concentration. It simply cannot perform without its energy-producing capacity intact. In trials involving patients with weak heart muscle (idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy). CoQ10 was added to previous treatments for heart failure such as ACE inhibitors, digitalis preparations (Lanoxin), and fluid pills (diuretics).
Some trials involved the comparison between supplemental CoQ10 and placebo on heart function as measured by echocardiography. CoQ10 was given orally in divided doses at mealtime. Heart function (the fraction of blood pumped out of the heart with each beat - the ejection fraction), showed a gradual and sustained improvement in tempo with a gradual and sustained improvement in symptoms of fatigue, palpitations and chest pain, and in some cases, the degree of improvement was dramatic including patients developing normal heart size and function on CoQ10 alone.
The most dramatic reversals were with patients who began CoQ10 early after congestive heart failure onset. With more established disease, patients showed improvement but not a return to normal heart size and function. As mentioned above, CoQ10 levels drop with age - the ability to absorb CoQ10 from food also decreases.
Researchers now recommend that even with diets high in CoQ10, like spinach, eggs and fish, supplemental high quality CoQ10 can be a life saver. Even younger adults can benefit with CoQ10 – supporting gum and heart health most noticeably.
CoQ10 and Neurodegeneration
Dr. Sinatra reports – in The Coenzyme Q10 Phenomenon – Co Q10 may be beneficial for brain and nerve cells by preventing the depletion of ATP at the same time as exerting an antioxidant effect.
One study of 80 patients with early signs of tremors, rigidity, and loss of posture control, showed increased levels of CoQ10 caused significant slowing of the progression of symptoms. And a small study published in the Lancet showed CoQ10 and other nutrients prevented the progression of mental deterioration with memory loss, for between 1 and 2 years.
Other Roles of CoQ10
• Mitochondria are the “energy generators” in each and every cell in the body. CoQ10 serves as a critical cofactor for at least three mitochondrial enzymes (called complexes I, II and III), that enable ongoing energy production through the synthesis of ATP, the energy that drives all cellular activities and without which cells cease to function.
• CoQ10 is also an essential fat-soluble network antioxidant (it can regenerate and recycle other antioxidants). CoQ10 is also a membrane stabilizer. Among the other functions of CoQ10 are cell signaling and gene expression.
• Improve function in stretched, thinned weakened hearts.
• Alleviate hearts too weak to pump effectively.
• Help improve outcomes in patients about to have heart surgery.
• Lower blood pressure.
• Help pregnant women with high blood pressure.
• Reduce the stickiness of blood.
• Improve the condition of 91 percent of heart attack patients within 30 days.
• Normalize function of heart valves.
• Prevent blood clots blocking oxygen to the brain.
• Improve blood circulation.
Safety of CoQ10
CoQ10 has an excellent safety record. It should be noted that CoQ10 is not a foreign substance but a naturally occurring nutrient that is synthesized in the body. Long-term safety of high dose CoQ10 supplementation has been very well documented in both animals and humans.
ARTICHOKE LEAF EXTRACT
Related to milk thistle, Artichoke was first studied in 1966 showing positive effect on liver regeneration in rats. Artichoke leaf extracts demonstrate significant benefits and potential as hepatoprotective agents and antioxidants. In addition, artichoke extracts have demonstrated benefits to the gallbladder with the ability to stimulate the secretion of bile in the liver. Like milk thistle, artichoke extract’s key benefit is in supporting regeneration of damaged liver tissue. Further it has shown ability to reduce fat buildup in the liver.
Studies on its hepatoprotective have been done only in animals as the normal procedure involves exposure to toxins. The research approach for this type of investigation is to administer the test substance (in this case the artichoke leaf extract) to the animal just prior or simultaneously with administration of toxin(s) and observe the results.
In studies of this nature, the use of artichoke leaf extract has indicated an apparent reduction of liver injury. A double blind German study showed that bile secretion was higher in the group that received artichoke extract.
An additional open label study was done on 417 volunteers with liver or bile duct disease. The majority of these participants had longstanding symptoms, some for countless years. They were all given artichoke leaf extract for approximately four weeks.
Following a one week period, 70% of the patients experienced improvement of their symptoms, and the percentage went up to 85% three weeks later.
Artichoke leaf extract has demonstrated to be a safe and natural way to preserve and improve general health due to its numerous applications to essential physiological functions.
Researchers all over the world continue to investigate applications in areas such as diabetes, cancer and HIV. Artichoke leaf extract has demonstrated to be a safe and natural method to help your liver and can be used harmlessly as an addition to conventional therapies.
BENEFIT OF BROCCOLI SPROUTS
New human Study indicates Broccoli Sprouts raise the body’s ability to eliminate cancer-causing toxins - Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and Bloomberg School of Public Health team observed that broccoli sprouts can help the body detoxify carcinogens, which may reduce the risk of developing liver cancer.
The study used three-day-old broccoli sprouts with known levels of sulforaphane glucosinolate and involved 200 subjects. November, 2005 issue of Cancer Epidemiology Biomarkers and Prevention.
Broccoli sprouts contain sulforaphane, a substance that has anti-bacterial and anti-cancer properties. Sulforaphane is a potent inducer of protective enzymes that give front-line defense against cancer-causing chemicals. Sulforaphane glucosinolate (SGS), is present in high levels in broccoli sprouts.
In a further study testing the effects of the sprouts on an animal model for hypertension in humans, researchers found evidence of increased tissue antioxidant defense mechanisms, lowered inflammatory response and improved cardiovascular health. “Nearly all the studies to date on sulforaphane, glucoraphanin and broccoli sprouts have focused on the protective effects of these substances against cancer. This study is the first to show that broccoli sprouts rich in these compounds raise the antioxidant and thereby the anti-inflammatory capacities of cells, and can profoundly affect the cardiovascular system and correct major dysfunctions such as hypertension and stroke,” said study leader Bernhard H.J. Juurlink, from the University of Saskatchewan, Canada.
SGS helps boost the body’s natural Phase 2 enzyme antioxidant defense systems and thus is a powerful and valuable indirect antioxidant detoxifying carcinogens before they can damage cells.
Typical direct antioxidant molecules, such as vitamins C and E, scavenge one free radical or other oxidant molecule at a time. Once a direct antioxidant molecule binds to a free radical molecule, rendering it harmless, the antioxidant is consumed and is no longer active.
The indirect antioxidant SGS works as a catalyst. It does not neutralize free radicals directly, but rather boosts the body’s own antioxidant systems (including Phase 2 detoxification enzymes) that exert ongoing and prolonged antioxidant activity. This is a broad spectrum of activity, cycling over and over, removing many free radicals.
Active form of Vitamin B6 Pyridoxal 5-Phosphate (P-5-P) is the most bioavailable coenzyme form of Vitamin B6, thus the preferred form for those who need optimal absorption of this critical B vitamin.
P-5-P is essential for healthy amino acid metabolism, neurotransmitter balance, immune function, and responsible for over sixty enzymatic reactions. Research shows that P-5-P or B-6 plus magnesium is the most critical vitamin/mineral combination in the treatment of autism and ADD/ADHD.
Other prominent uses for P-5-P include heart health, diabetes, PMS, and pregnancy induced nausea. Since P-5-P is about five times more absorbable than vitamin B-6, a 50mg capsule is considered equivalent to 250mg B-6.
People who have a history of liver problems should consider supplementation with pyridoxal-5-phosphate over other forms. The reason is that the commonly used Vitamin B6 - pyridoxine HCL – requires Vitamin B2, magnesium and a well-functioning liver to convert it to the active form of B6 which is P-5-P.
Without adequate vitamin B6, the amino acids in dietary protein are not of much use to you. Vitamin B6 literally controls the amino acid absorption, metabolism and transformations in your body. It also directly participates in carbohydrate and fat metabolism, as well as the formation of red blood cells and antibodies.
It is necessary for the absorption and utilization of certain minerals and is required for the proper functioning of over sixty enzyme systems in our bodies.
Pyridoxal-5-Phosphate is essential to any natural anti-depressant program and detailed in Dr. Slagle’s book, “The Way Up From Down”
• Helps to relieve premenstrual symptoms.
• Helps boost immunity.
• May be protective against some forms of cancer.
• May be effective with some forms of fertility.
• Has anti-convulsant effects.
• Helps with skin disorders.
• Helps maintain healthy blood sugar levels.
Glutathione is your body's primary cellular detoxifier and antioxidant. Your liver uses it too but depleted levels always occur with chronic ill health situations.
Glutathione is an amino acid and is available in vitamins. Unfortunately, free glutathione as a supplement is not absorbed by your cells. Whether you take it in pill form or via injections, almost none gets into your cells or the liver. For years health practitioners have tried to come up with a way to get glutathione into cells.
The only solution available before Glutathione Specialist, was to consume undenatured whey protein like ImmunoPro or RenewPro. The amino acids in this type of whey can be used by the body to make glutathione. However, this process works slowly and requires that you be able to properly digest the proteins.
In Glutathione Specialist, the glutathione is hidden inside healthy fat molecules that the cells love to consume. Consequently, glutathione gets pulled inside the cells without being broken down, where it can do its work of neutralizing toxins.
I consider it a real breakthrough in detoxification, for any situation where toxins must be eliminated from the cells. Using Glutathione Specialist, you can more rapidly and effectively detoxify your cells then you can with any other product.
Ingredients: Essential phospholipids 1500 mg, reduced glutathione 500 mg, methylcoboamine (B12) 1 mg, folinic acid 800 mcg.
Other ingredients: Water, lecithin, alcohol 12%, natural flavor.
Nymsar calms down the inflammatory, over-responding immune system that activates when pathogens or anything unwanted in the body is killed. For example, in the case of candida overgrowth, (which leads to food allergies), Nymsar can help reduce allergies by calming down the over-responding immune system that is causing the allergic response. It reduces inflammation throughout the body as it calms the immune system's inflammatory response.
In addition, the energies in Nymsar focus the body on increasing support for the liver. These energies improve cellular detoxification. This will enable your body to handle the toxins released when candida or other pathogens are killed, or when your body is exposed to high doses of toxins from external sources, such as chemotherapy.
An overload of toxins, whether released by killed pathogens or unwanted cells, can overwhelm the liver’s ability to handle those toxins. As they build up, your cells’ detoxification systems become overwhelmed. This causes a buildup of toxins in the body which make you feel just plain lousy and sick.
In addition, Nymsar has energies that deactivate or calm down candida and other pathogens so they are not as active or aggressive. This would help to reduce flare-up reactions such as rashes and itching, or any flare up of symptoms the pathogen may be causing. By calming them down,
Nymsar reduces their ability to activate or fight back, enabling them to be more easily destroyed. Ingredients: Frequency enhanced water
