The liver may be the single most important organ in the body for supporting overall physical health. It is the largest organ in the body (besides the skin) and has an enormous amount of blood flowing through it every moment. It cleanses the bloodstream, with its Kuppfer cells acting as the filter, and is of vital importance to immunity and energy production. The liver is best known for its role in detoxification, transforming substances like ammonia, metabolic waste, drugs and chemicals, so that they can be excreted. The liver is also the source of bile, which functions to break down fats. It is a source of energy, storing glucose in the form of glycogen which is converted back to glucose. Metabolizing carbohydrates, proteins and fats, making food available to the body for energy, tissue building, activating enzymes…the list of the liver’s functions is long and reinforces the point that we need to protect it!Acts synergistically with N-Acetyl-Cysteine, assisting its active properties.This sulfur-containing amino acid is the primary methylating agent in the liver. The importance of methylation cannot be overstated. Methylation is the biochemical process in which certain molecules transfer or donate a methyl group (-CH3) to other molecules. The effectiveness of N-Acetyl-Cysteine (NAC) is primarily attributed to its ability to reduce extracellular cystine to cysteine, or to act in the cells as a source of sulfhydryl groups.It is the major amino acid required for the removal of toxic chemicals and metabolites from the body and is an essential component of cell membranes, where it plays a role in stabilizing transport across cell membranes. The most abundant and required antioxidant in the body, glutathione (GSH) is synthesized from the amino acids glycine, L-cysteine, and glutamic acid.
