ChinaMed Liver Detox Formula 78c
This formula is designed to support the liver’s detoxification functions and contains herbal ingredients that (in terms of TCM) nourish and tonify the Liver, soothe the Liver and resolve constraint (i.e. disperse stagnant Liver Qi) and clear Liver Heat. Several of the ingredients have a direct action on modulating the liver’s detoxification pathways by slowing Phase I and promoting Phase II biotransformation systems. In addition, most of the herbal ingredients are rich in antioxidants, which have a protective effect against the harmful free radicals that are produced during this process.
Phase I is the oxidation phase during which enzymes ‘burn’ or oxidize toxins into intermediate substances called free radicals. These free radicals are generally much more toxic than the original toxin. Free radical damage is linked to diseases such as cancer, heart disease and allergies and this is well documented in the scientific literature. Phase II is the conjugation phase, in which enzymes act to combine the free radical with neutralizing molecules (mostly endogenous antioxidants) to make the toxin water-soluble and easier for the body to excrete.
Generally a liver detoxification program is carried out after a gut detox and repair program, as one largely preventable source of toxic load on the liver arises from disordered GIT function. A comprehensive detoxification program may assist in the management or treatment of a wide variety of chronic diseases. In addition, reducing the toxic load on the body is an effective tool for improving overall health and wellbeing as it eliminates excessive immune inflammation responses, allergies, chemical sensitivities, balances the immune system, reduces free radicals, improves cognition, restores hormone balance, improves digestion and increases energy and vitality.
