Uses For LVR Formula
Liver Tissue Support: LVR Formula helps rejuvenate liver function with antioxidants designed to offer multifaceted liver cell protection. The flavonoid components in silymarin, curcumin and artichoke have powerful free radical scavenging activities, helping to protect and promote liver cell health. Studies indicate that silymarin supports metabolism and detoxification through the liver, hepatocyte protein synthesis and DNA integrity within the liver cells. Curcumin offers additional cellular protection. Luteolin is a key component found in artichoke. Research suggests that it promotes healthy matrix metalloproteinase activity to support hepatic cell regeneration and liver tissue health. N-Acetyl cysteine (NAC) is a precursor of the endogenous antioxidant glutathione. In the body, NAC restores glutathione levels in the liver and helps protect the liver from toxic metabolites produced during normal detoxification processes. Experimental models suggest that the antioxidant properties of alpha lipoic acid provide further liver cell protection.*
