A healthy lifestyle coupled with a supplement such as USANA’s Hepasil DTX is a great way to support liver function, which plays a vital role in the body’s natural detoxification processes.
Your liver performs a number of functions vital to maintaining good health, including filtering almost everything that goes into your blood stream. Almost every nutrient you put into your mouth—from food, drinks, medications, and supplements—goes through your liver, where they are broken down into a form that can be used by your body or filtered out and eliminated. An unstable liver that isn’t functioning optimally may result in a build up of toxins in your system that could cause a wide variety of long-term health issues.
Hepasil DTX supports healthy liver function by supplying the body with nutrients that promote the natural detoxification process as well as endogenous antioxidant activity.
A key ingredient in Hepasil DTX, choline helps the liver metabolize fats and cholesterol and move them out of the liver. Upon entry into the cell, choline is oxidized to become betaine, which plays a role in donating methyl groups necessary for detoxification reactions.
Hepasil DTX also delivers a comprehensive array of phenolic compounds that exhibit antioxidant properties, including green tea extract, broccoli concentrate, and USANA’s patented Olivol. In addition, n-acetyl l-cysteine, alpha-lipoic acid, and milk-thistle extract help your body produce its own natural antioxidants—most notably, glutathione, which is most concentrated in the liver. Glutathione goes to work in three ways: it attaches to and carries toxins out of your body; it helps protect cells from oxidative stress; and it recycles other antioxidants so they can continue defending your cells. This is important not only for protection from the free radicals and toxins you are exposed to in the environment, but also because the detoxification process itself generates oxidative stress in your liver.
Taking three tablets of Hepasil DTX a day for 28 days can help significantly increase natural glutathione production and overall antioxidant capacity. In fact, the formula itself is now patent pending because of the increase in glutathione, vitamin C antioxidant capacity, and detoxification activity it helps produce within the body. Hepasil DTX is also patent pending because it safely combines two previously incompatible liver-supporting nutrients into one bi-layer tablet using USANA’s Nutritional Hybrid Technology.
