You can say that that the health of the body depends on the health of the liver.
Thats’s because the liver is the body’s major metabolic organ and a healthy liver can keep your whole body healthy. It processes, packages, stores, and ships out carbohydrates, fats, proteins, and micronutrients. It is responsible for the breakdown and elimination of alcohol, toxins, hormones, and medications, as well as for the synthesis of vital proteins, and clotting factors. Research supports the fact that providing targeted nutrition supplementation can support liver function and overall health.
HepatoProtect contains four powerful ingredients that include potent antioxidants and herbs that nourish and support liver cells and support its metabolic actions. Let me introduce you the four powerful nutrients in HepatoProtect. First I included N-Acetyl-Cysteine (NAC), NAC is made by the body from the amino acid cysteine and is the precursor to glutathione, the ‘master’ or most powerful antioxidant in your body so aside from having antioxidant and health promoting properties itself, it helps increase glutathione levels in your body. NAC and Glutathione help counteract free radical damage and are active in detoxification. Glutathione also supports a healthy defense against environmental pollutants, gamma-radiation, and other potential toxins that are damaging to your liver. Many of the liver’s crucial functions for the body depend on the master antioxidant Glutathione. Levels of glutathione decline with age, poor nutrition, infections, alcohol use, excessive exercise, exposure to toxins, high blood sugar and certain genetics. Supporting Glutathione production supports optimal liver function, detoxification, immune health, natural killer cell function, helps reduce free radical damage and oxidative stress, regenerates antioxidants, supports male fertility, helps increase magnesium levels and more.
Next, I included Alpha-Lipoic Acid, a powerful antioxidant that helps support liver health. In addition, Alpha-Lipoic Acid has numerous important functions including supporting glutathione production, regenerating antioxidant vitamins C and E, supporting Coenzyme Q10, helping mitochondrial cellular energy production, and supporting healthy levels of nitric oxide in the liver and kidney, and promoting balanced inflammation and immune functions in the body.
I made sure to include Silymarin, the active component in milk thistle extract, that has a long history of use in promoting optimal liver health. Sylmarin from Milk Thistle, supports antioxidant activity, neutralizes toxins, and also may protects the genetic material of liver cells. Like alpha-lipoic acid, silymarin supports the production of cellular glutathione, the master antioxidant. It has powerful liver protection properties that include supporting normal fat metabolism, supporting a healthy immune response and the natural response to inflammation and promoting healthy protein synthesis and normal regeneration of liver tissue.
Lastly, HepatoProtect includes Selenium, in its main natural food form selenomethionin. Selenium is a powerful mineral with essential body functions especially in supporting liver health. It is an important coenzyme for the glutathione detoxification system. Selenium also supports antioxidant defenses and healthy inflammatory response in liver cells which play a crucial role in maintaining the normal structure and function in the liver. Selenium is also important for normal thyroid gland function, reproduction, DNA production, and protecting the body from infection among other benefits. These 4 nutrients work together to provide powerful, effective and balanced targeted support for liver health and offer a low-cost, comprehensive approach to optimal liver support.

Generally if your child is over the age of 12 and normal body weight without serious medical conditions they may take Hepatoprotect. There are no ingredients in Hepatoprotect that are contraindicated in children. That being said I always suggest that you first speak with your child’s pediatrician so they can take your Child’s full health and history into consideration.
