Hepatik Defense is a powerful and fast-acting formula for liver detox. Hepatik Defense helps reduce cholesterol and triglyceride levels. It lowers the risks of hepatitis and cirrhosis, and aids liver cell regeneration.
The liver is responsible for over 500 of the body’s functions. These include bile production, glycemic regulation, glycogen storage and the production of certain vitamins and minerals.
A liver that is sick or not functioning optimally is a precursor to many chronic illnesses. Hepatic disease is frequent in North America, with about 400,000 people suffering from cirrhosis every year in the US (NIH, 1994) and no fewer than 2 million North Americans dealing with hepatic issues caused, notably, by the overconsumption of alcohol. Cigarettes, coffee, fatty foods, overeating, alcohol and the side effects of some medication or drugs are among the bad habits that can cause a “liver attack.”
More serious disease
“Liver attack” is actually a misnomer. When the liver is affected, it is because we are facing more serious illnesses, hepatitis, for example, and not a passing episode. Since the liver regulates a wide range of body functions, many symptoms can be observed from an imbalanced liver. These include fatigue, sleep issues, itchy skin, greater sensitivity to cold and asthma.
Digestion-related attacks are caused by a poorly functioning gallbladder (a frequent cause of pain in the right shoulder, stomach aches and vomiting), stomach ulcers, gastric reflux (often calmed by medication) or intestinal issues (gas, abdominal pain, flatulence, burping, diarrhea or constipation).
The symptoms of a congested liver
The liver can be congested, however. When this occurs, people experience digestive problems or a feeling of heaviness in the liver area (under the ribs on the right-hand side). Certain foods and drinks, including rich sauces, fried foods, fatty meats, white sugar, food preservatives and alcohol, should be avoided for several days or even weeks until digestive function is re-established. One last piece of advice: be sure to drink a lot of water with any alcohol to avoid dehydration and its unpleasant side effects.
Hepatik defense by ATP: To care for your liver when it is imbalanced, first keep an eye on your diet. Then, take 1‒2 capsules of Hepatik defense 3 times a day for 4‒6 weeks. Placing a hot water bottle on your tummy will activate your liver functioning.
Choline: Long considered a B vitamin, choline was recognized in 1998 by American authorities as an essential nutrient. Choline is the precursor for acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter that plays a very important role in muscle control as well as in memory. It also participates in the synthesis of lecithin (or phosphatidylcholine), an indispensable element of cellular membranes. Choline is also a component of bile, which favours the digestion of lipids.
Inositol: Inositol levels in the nerves decline with age, as do reflex speed. Considered the “vitamin for the Golden Years,” inositol or vitamin B7 is indeed a nutritional tonic for the nervous system and the liver. It mobilizes fats, thus inhibiting fat accumulation, and favours the second phase of liver detoxification.
NAC (N-acetylcysteine): NAC is a precursor for glutathion peroxidase, one of the body’s most powerful antioxidants. NAC protects the liver from free radicals, the side effects of some medication and many environmental pollutants.
Milk thistle: Used for over 2,000 years in traditional Chinese and Ayurvedic medicines to treat the liver, milk thistle has many anti-diabetic and anti-cancer virtues. It also regulates cholesterol and triglycerides. Milk thistle is a powerful agent of detoxification and a regenerator of hepatic cells and the famous P450 cytochromes, which come into play in the first phase of liver detoxification.
Artichoke: Artichoke reduces cholesterol levels and re-establishes LDL and HDL ratios. It fosters effective digestion and an increased elimination of toxins. It also plays a protective role for the liver and is a choleretic or cholagogue activator (increased bile flow).
