BioLivX contains a variety of nutrients and herbs with proven benefit for protecting and enhancing hepatic function, as well as supporting detoxification pathways. Sodium glucuronate supports the phase II pathway of detoxification by providing the precursor for glucuronidation. Conjugation of glucuronic acid with a wide variety of functional groups, including hydroxyls, phenols, and carboxyls, is mediated in the liver as well as the intestine. Licorice has been shown to have hepatoprotective effects, including protection against toxins such as carbon tetrachloride, as well as from free fatty acid excess which accompanies nonalcoholic fatty liver disease. Alpha-lipoic acid is a water- and fat-soluble antioxidant, involved in hepatoprotection and cell damage prevention. It has the ability to alter the redox status of cells and interact with thiols, increasing hepatic glutathione content. Silybin is the most active flavonolignan isomer of silymarin, acting through a number of pathways, including antioxidative, anti-lipid peroxidative, antifibrotic, anti-inflammatory, and liver regenerating mechanisms. It also enhances glucuronidation and protects against glutathione depletion. Schizandra, Curcumin, and Panax Ginseng are also hepatoprotective, support detoxification pathways, and enhance liver function.
