With the high incidence of toxic chemicals in our environment, food, water, medications and even body tissues, some individuals experience an accumulation of harmful compounds in their bodies. A concentration of such substances can lead to a variety of metabolic dysfunctions, particularly to the immune, neurological and endocrine systems of the body. Additionally, fat build up in the liver can lead to liver damage. Patient One LiverCare™ is a synergistic blend of antioxidants, vitamins, herbs and amino acids that enhance the body’s ability to detoxify and protect the liver. This unique combination aids in fat metabolism within the liver, promotes glutathione synthesis, supports the safe elimination of toxins and supplies a broad range of antioxidants to help reduce free radical damage.
Prior to embarking on a detoxification program it is important to achieve optimal bowel function. Therefore, we recommend using a fiber formula such as Patient One C-Cleanse as it supports the elimination of toxins from the body, binding toxins released into the intestines from the liver and preventing their reabsorption.
Vitamins A, C and E:
Vitamins A, C and E work in conjunction with each other to provide cofactors for toxin breakdown and removal from the liver via urine. Once contaminants are in a form that can be safely excreted, the bowel and kidneys take over in the final task of toxin elimination. Vitamin C neutralizes intermediate toxins and has a synergistic relationship with Vitamin A and E. All are essential for increasing glutathione levels. Vitamin C aids the detox process by limiting damage to the body from free radicals. Vitamin C strengthens the immune system and is especially effective in helping the body rid itself of heavy metal toxins like mercury, lead, cadmium and nickel. Vitamin E supports stability and integrity of cellular tissue and membrane throughout the body by inhibiting free radical damage.
Selenium is a trace mineral with an important role in detoxification. It is a cofactor for the production of glutathione peroxidase, a form of glutathione that enhances antioxidant protection against free radical damage. Selenium assists in the detox of heavy metals by enhancing the activity of lymphocytes and macrophages.
Proprietary Liver Support Blend:
Our proprietary blend combines natural botanicals and amino acids with powerful antioxidants to simulate the various phases of liver detoxification. N-acetyl-l-cysteine is an antioxidant that boosts tissue glutathione levels and also plays a role in binding heavy metals. Tumeric and Siliphos® milk thistle (standardized for 29.7-36.3% silibin) enhance phase II detoxification enzymes, support glutathione synthesis and promote gastric, colon and liver cell function. Sulforaphane from broccoli is a potent natural inducer of phase II detoxification enzymes, which eliminate many types of free radicals and environmental pollutants and trigger ongoing antioxidant action. Red clover and red raspberry are included for additional antioxidant protection.
Artichoke extract aids the digestive process by promoting healthy bile flow and intestinal motility, reducing toxin exposure in the gut. It also supports hepatic cell function and blood flow in the liver. Trimethylglycine functions in the body as a methyl donor and is involved in liver function, including detoxification reactions. Burdock root, dandelion root and yellow dock root have been studied for their protective effects on the liver, specifically protecting the body against cellular damage and abnormal growths caused by toxic chemicals. Licorice root supports neutralization of strong chemical toxins. Horsetail works as a diuretic to help flush toxins out of the body, and alfalfa acts as a natural body cleanser by eliminating retained water and carbon dioxide from the body.
