HepataDetox™ is a comprehensive formula designed to support liver functions in the following ways:
+ Phase I and Phase II liver detoxification* + Fat metabolism* + Antioxidant protection* + Glutathione production*
✚ Phase I detoxification involves a group of enzymes, known as the cytochrome P450 family, which are all imbedded in healthy cell membranes of liver cells. When cytochrome P450 metabolizes a toxin, it chemically transforms it to a less toxic form, and/or makes it water soluble for the Phase II enzymes.
✚ Phase II detoxification involves a process called conjugation, which neutralizes the toxin and makes it easily excreted through the urine or bile. There are six Phase II detoxification pathways; glutathione conjugation, amino acid (namely glycine) conjugation, methylation, sulfation, acetylation and
