The liver, along with the kidneys, skin, and intestine, is the waste management plant of the body. The liver filters blood to remove bacteria, modulate bile secretion to eliminate cholesterol, regulate hemoglobin, breakdown products, and remove negative results left by prescription drugs.

If you have any of these symptoms, your prescription drugs, over-the-counter remedies, and even some natural alternatives could be making these problems worse.
The Functions of the Liver
The liver is our body’s most important organ after the heart, performing many important functions. It also filters, regulates, and stores blood. Stress, poor diet, and over-medication are common problems in our “civilized” lifestyle. These may lead to stress and functional damage to the liver. As a result, “sluggish” liver has become a common ailment. It may affect memory, sleep, thyroid, body weight, and other body functions.
Weighing in at just over one kilogram, the liver is a complex chemical factory that works 24 hours a day. It processes virtually everything you eat, drink, breathe in or rub on your skin and that’s just some of its over 500 different functions vital to life.
Every day, your liver helps your body by providing it with energy, fighting off infections and toxins, helping clot the blood, regulating hormones and much, much more. To give you an idea of the liver’s critical roles, here are some of its functions:
Cleanses the blood:
– metabolizing alcohol and other drugs and chemicals,
– neutralizing and destroying poisonous substances.
Assists with Circulation:
The liver filters, stores and regulates the blood and is responsible for nourishing every cell in our body. Every part of the body depends on blood from the liver for nourishment and sustenance.
Regulates the supply of body fuel:
– producing, storing and supplying quick energy (glucose) to keep the mind alert and the body active,
– producing, storing and exporting fat.
Manufactures many essential body proteins involved in:
– transporting substances in the blood,
– clotting of blood,
– providing resistance to infection.
Regulates the balance of many hormones:
– sex hormones,
– thyroid hormones,
– cortisone and other adrenal hormones.
– Eliminates hormones through the bile or urine. Since estrogen and androgen are both growth hormones which stimulate cell division, elevation of their levels in the blood due to the liver’s failure to remove them efficiently can cause their accumulation in tissue. This in turn may lead to abnormal growths such as uterine fibroids, ovarian cysts, endometriosis, breast cysts and breast cancer, prostate enlargement or prostate cancer. Excessive estrogen is also the most common cause of painful menstruations.
Regulates body cholesterol:
– produces cholesterol, excretes and converts it to other essential substances.
Carbohydrate, protein, lipid (fat), mineral and vitamin metabolism; manufacturing and storage of many nutrients such as glucose and vitamins; production of heat through metabolism.
Regulates the supply of essential vitamins and minerals such as iron and copper.
Produces bile which eliminates toxic substances from the body and aids digestion.
Taking into account the functions and importance of the liver in maintaining good health, we have developed Liver-Assist Capsules to help the liver function efficiently thus eliminating many liver-related illnesses.
Liver-Assist capsules contain Milk Thistle that protects and regenerates the liver in most liver diseases such as Cirrhosis (hardening of the Liver), Jaundice and Hepatitis, (inflammation of the Liver), and Cholangitis (inflammation of bile ducts resulting in decreased bile flow). It is one of the best examples of preventative medicine that we have today as it not only protects each cell of the liver from incoming toxins, but simultaneously encourages the liver to cleanse itself of damaging substances, such as alcohol, drugs, medications, mercury and heavy metals, pesticides, anesthesia, and even the most poisonous of mushrooms, the Amanita or Death-cap mushroom.
Liver-Assist Capsules are specifically designed to:
Maintain healthy cholesterol
Promote healthy weight loss
Maintain balanced blood sugar levels
Relieve occasional gas, bloating, indigestion, diarrhea or constipation
Experience higher energy—no more morning or afternoon “crashes”
Enjoy better-feeling muscles
Support a sharp memory
Discover clearer, younger-looking skin
Liver-Assist is wonderful and appropriate for anyone who is under stress, uses alcohol, recreational drugs, prescription medications, or lives in today’s modern times of pesticides, environmental toxins, and pollution. Virtually every person in an industrial nation.
One of the special qualities of Liver-Assist is that it cleanses and detoxifies an overburdened and stagnant liver while also being able to strengthen and notify a weak liver; thus, delivering potent medicine to clogged, excess conditions as well as to weakened, deficient conditionals. One of the tasks of the liver is to cleanse the blood. If the liver energy is stagnant it will be unable to effectively cleanse the blood; this can result in skin problems ranging from acne to psoriasis, eczema, and dermatitis. Liver-Assist is a powerful herb for supporting the liver to purify the blood and is one of the best herbs for the skin disorders mentioned above. It is also effective for treating congestion of the kidneys, spleen, and pelvic region.
Each 400mg Liver-Assist Vegicap contains:
Milk Thistle. Your liver helps process some of the 850 million pounds of toxic chemicals released into the environment every year. An overload of these toxins can easily wear out your liver—and leave you prone to developing a host of health problems! Researchers have discovered that silymarin—a powerful bioflavonoid antioxidant found in milk thistle—can help your liver replace dead or damaged cells—and effectively repair itself! Studies conducted by the Center for Cancer Causation and Prevention at the AMC Cancer Research Center in Denver, Colo., also suggest that milk thistle provides protection from carcinogens that affect the prostate, breast, and cervical cells!
Artichoke Leaf. Artichoke leaf has been used for centuries to enhance healthy bile secretion. Why is this important? Well, think of bile as the liquid detergent you use to wash your dirty, greasy dishes. Without that detergent, you can’t break up the grease and dishes stay dirty. Without bile, your liver can’t properly break up cholesterol and other fatty molecules that can wreak havoc on your health!
Turmeric Root. This popular spice has been traditionally used to help remove dangerous toxins from the liver and stimulate the production of bile. According to the book, Herb Bible, turmeric can also help reduce liver inflammation!
Burdock—Purges poisons to purify blood! Noted health expert Varro E. Tyler, Ph.D., in The Honest Herbal recommends burdock as a blood purifier. Why? Because this remarkable herb, has the uncanny ability to help neutralize most poisons, that enter the liver. What’s more, it can soothe irritated kidneys and enhance urine flow!
Dandelion Root .This age-old herb helps filter toxins from your liver and kidneys without overstraining or tiring out these organs. Dandelion is a natural diuretic that can increase urine production by promoting the excretion of salts and water from the kidneys. Plus, it helps keep optimal water balance in your kidneys… encourages healthy electrolyte balance in the blood… and helps keep liver and pancreas enzymes in balance. Dandelion is also a rich source of potassium!
Oregano – is capable of preventing tissue damage and encouraging healing in the liver.
Amla. Regular use of pain killers, antibiotics and medication, regular intake of alcohol, all cause toxin build-up in the liver. Amla helps strengthen the liver, and rid the body of these toxins. Studies have proved that Amla has properties that protect the liver from oxidative damage caused by chemicals or alcohol.
