The liver is an extremely busy and hardworking organ, as evidenced by its huge blood flow; blood passes through the liver at a rate of around 3 pints (approximately 2 cups) per minute.

The liver is behind the ribs on the right side of the upper abdomen. It has two anatomical parts called lobes. The right lobe is approximately six times larger than the left. The right and left lobes of the liver are separated by fibrous tissue known as the falciform ligament.

The liver is not only unique by virtue of its large size, but also by its dual blood supply. It is the only organ to have two separate sources of blood supply; the hepatic artery bringing freshly oxygenated blood from the heart and the portal vein bringing blood from the stomach and intestines loaded with nutrients from food.

The liver is very versatile and performs the following metabolic and regulatory functions:

Regulates carbohydrate metabolism - it turns glucose (sugar) into glycogen for storage in the liver. Liver glycogen can release glucose into the blood to maintain normal blood sugar levels if needed. If the body is low in carbohydrates the liver can manufacture more carbohydrates from fat or proteins. 

Has storage functions - stores glycogen, vitamin A and D, iron, copper, and many of the B complex vitamins.

Regulates protein metabolism - the liver manufactures many body proteins such as albumin and blood-clotting factors such as prothrombin and fibrinogen that cause the blood to clot when needed. It transports substances such as fats, iron, hormones, and drugs around the blood stream. One particular liver protein called High Density Lipoprotein (HDL) is checked frequently in blood tests, as a high reading is beneficial in reducing the risk of heart disease. This is because HDL transports cholesterol out of the blood vessel’s walls back to the liver for excretion. 

Detoxifies many toxic substances and chemicals - the liver detoxifies by adding a substance to a toxin for its elimination or deactivation. It metabolizes or bio-transforms illegal drugs, medications, steroid hormones, and waste products of the body such as toxic ammonia. Ammonia is formed in the organism from the breakdown of protein and a healthy liver is able to break it down into urea, which is then excreted via the kidneys. The most important enzyme system in the liver’s detoxication process is the cytochrome P-450-dependent microsomal oxidase system. 

Hepa Cleanser™ is a combination seven important ingredients for optimum liver function.

Therapeutic use of milk thistle can be traced back more than 2,000 years. The dried fruit of milk thistle contains a flavonoid complex known as silymarin. This constituent is responsible for the medical benefits of the plant. Silymarin is made up of three parts: silibinin, silidianin, and silicristin. Silibinin is the most active part and largely responsible for the benefits attributed to silymarin. This plant may protect liver cells by blocking the entrance of harmful toxins and helping remove these toxins from the cells. Silymarin is considered a powerful antioxidant.

Yellow dock is found in many places throughout North America. The root of the plant is used in herbal medicine. It has a long history of use as an alternative. Alternative herbs have nonspecific effects on the gastrointestinal tract and liver. As a result, they are thought to help skin conditions attributed to toxic metabolites from poor digestion and weak liver function. Yellow dock contains relatively small amounts of anthraquinone glycosides, which may contribute to its mild laxative effects. It is also thought to stimulate bile production.

Dandelion is commonly used as food. The leaves and roots have been used for hundreds of years to improve conditions of the liver, gallbladder, kidney, and joint problems. In some cultures, dandelion is considered a blood purifier. The primary constituents for dandelion’s action on the digestive system and liver are the bitter principles. 

Before European colonists arrived to America, the indigenous people used Oregon grape for many health complaints. Alkaloids, including berberine, berbamine, canadine, and hydrastine, may account for the activity of this herb. The bitter-tasting compounds as well as the alkaloids in Oregon grape root are thought to stimulate digestive function. 

The root of gentian is used for therapeutic purposes. It has been used in Europe as a digestive aid. Gentian contains bitter substances such as the glycosides gentiopicrin and amarogentin. Besides stimulating secretion of saliva in the mouth and hydrochloric acid in the stomach, gentiopicrin may promote the protection of the liver. 

Red clover grows in Europe and North America. The flowering tops are used in botanical medicine. Traditional Chinese Medicine and Western folk medicine used this plant for various conditions. Red clover is also considered an alternative agent and known as a “blood cleanser”.

Traditional Chinese Medicine has recommended ginger for over 2,500 years. Ginger has a wide range of applications. Studies with mice have shown that ginger possesses a protective role against alcohol-related liver disease and fatty liver, based on the biochemical data and histopathological examination.
