Holistic Recommendations

The ultimate fat burner - your liver!

Most over-weight and obese individuals have a common form of liver dysfunction called "fatty liver," caused by the liver becoming over-taxed with additives and poisons from junk foods and trans-fats. Persons with "fatty liver" find it almost impossible to lose weight. The reason is really quite simple:

The liver is the major fat burning organ in the human body. It removes fatty acids from the blood stream and regulates both fat and carbohydrate metabolism. Just as an automobile cannot operate at maximum efficiency with a clogged oil filter, the human body cannot burn fat efficiently with a clogged liver. Clean the patient's "liver filter" and you restore his or her ability to effectively burn fat!

The majority of individuals - as well as many health professionals - concentrate their efforts fighting the symptoms of obesity with diet drugs and weight loss products rather than the causes of obesity. One of the major causes of obesity is a toxic and over-taxed "fatty liver."

The human body is designed and programmed for health and rejuvenation at any age. Factor Nine: Liverzyne may prove to be exactly the help you need to achieve your weight goal.

Overcoming distress and digestive disease on a poisoned planet!

 

It is not "fate" that decides who gets sick and who doesn't!  In today's unhealthy environment where, according to the EPA, even drinking water contains over 700 chemicals including lead, our exposure to harmful substances has escalated to incalculable levels. Our "liver filter," the sinusoidal system, is easily overloaded under such conditions. Such overload can cause stress, anxiety, and lead to hyperactivity or a state of depression.

 

Modern medicine and unhealthy diet programs promulgated by members of the medical profession exacerbate the situation. Consider the following:

 

Over the counter Painkillers are the Leading Cause of Liver Failure!

 

Acetaminophen products, like Tylenol, are responsible for tens of thousands of liver poisonings a year, with hundreds of fatalities. A recent three-year study published in the Annals of Internal Medicine looked at 308 patients with acute liver failure from 17 different liver care centers and determined that acetaminophen accounted for 39% of cases.30

 

Swiss researchers report that NSAID (Non Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs) pain medications are probably killing 2,000 patients each year in the UK (Great Britain) and suggest that one in 1,000 patients who take these drugs for at least two years will die from them.31

 

High Protein Diets can lead to Mental Confusion.

 

Too much daily protein may cause hepatic encephalopathy (mental confusion) according to the Hepatitis Foundation. This occurs when the amount of dietary protein is greater than the liver's ability to use it. This results in a build-up of toxins that can interfere with brain function. Diet plans, such as the Atkins Diet, can cause weight loss in individuals, however, the down side the individual pays for this weight reduction is never stated!

 

Thanks to modern OTC pain relievers and governmental failure to regulate today's industrial and agri-business practices which poison our soil, air, and water, twenty-five million (25,000,000) Americans are or have been affected with liver disease.32

 

Nearly 20 years ago, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimated that up to 20% of all deaths in America were due to pollutants and environmental hazards.33 Since then, environmental conditions have deteriorated!

 

Our most current research indicates a simple Three Step protocol is necessary to achieve maximum liver detoxification:

 

Step One: Proper assimilation of food and gastrointestinal support.  Liver dysfunction begins with digestive problems caused by enzyme depletion. The pancreas is the major producer of digestive enzymes and is the first organ to be overwhelmed by toxins. Fats are the most difficult foods to be broken down by pancreatic enzymes which is why "fatty liver" affects more than 50% of people over the age of 50!

 

Factor Seven: Digestin complements the body's enzyme production and ameliorates stress to the pancreas and liver. Enzyme supplementation is therefore recommended as an important adjunct to liver detoxification.

 

Step Two: There are two major detoxification pathways inside the liver, Phase I and Phase II.  

 

Phase I detox pathway  is known as the Cyto-chrome P-450 monooxygenase system and is the body's way of transforming non-polar, non-water soluble toxins into less harmful compounds in preparation for Phase II. During this process free radicals are produced which can damage the liver cells. Antioxidants, such as vitamins C and E, natural carotenoids, and the B complex group, reduce such damage. If sufficient antioxidants are lacking, the liver becomes stressed and Phase I detox is jeopardized.

 

Phase II  detox is known as the conjugation pathway in which water soluble chemicals are ready to be turned into excretable substances. It is here that the selected herbs and natural sulphur compounds and enzymes formulated in Factor Nine: Liverzyne facilitate the Phase II detox process.

 

Step Three.  The liver takes fat in the form of cholesterol and pumps it via the bile into the intestines where it will be eliminated provided the diet has sufficient fiber - an intake of 40 to 50 grams per day. (Most American diets are 20 grams per day!)

 

Individuals suffering from liver dysfunction usually have difficulty metabolizing fats and have high cholesterol levels. If bodily waste cannot be efficiently eliminated, an accumulation of toxins will build up in the lymph, blood stream, and intestines. It is therefore important that a fiber based diet be incorporated into the liver detox protocol if the diet is high in fat and fried foods and/or low in vegetables and fruits.

 

We caution against fasting for any patient diagnosed with "fatty or sluggish liver." Fasting is an extreme and temporary method of cleansing the body and can cause  acute side effects. The liver, like any filter, needs to be cleansed regularly and it is easier to do so on a daily basis. This is easily and pleasantly achieved by adhering to the simple three step protocol above.

Validation of Ingredients

DL-METHIONINE is an essential sulphur containing amino acid that assists in the breakdown of fats, thus helping to prevent a buildup of fat in the liver and arteries.1 Methionine was probably one of the first amino acids available in the earth's ancient primordial seas and is a powerful antioxidant shown to help detoxify harmful heavy metals such as lead in the blood.2

 

Because dl-methionine can reduce oxidative damage done by immune cells activated by antigen-antibody complexes in autoimmune diseases, it is believed to be beneficial in treating autoimmunity ailments such as allergies and asthma.3

 

Substantial evidence indicates that daily supplementation of dl-methionine may prevent the onset of diseases related to smoking. The National Center for Health Statistics indicates the incidence of lung cancer per smoker is 8 times higher in the U.S. than in Japan.One mechanism of lung damage done by cigarette smoke is thought to involve the oxidation of a protein, which normally protects the lung connective tissue. The protein which protects lung tissue is called alpha-1-protease inhibitor. In in-vitro testing, methionine protects this protein.5

 

It is therefore believed the Japanese diet, which is high in dl-methionine, may provide smokers with benefits not available to the U.S. population because of our methods of food processing.

 

CHOLINE BITARTRATE is an essential nutrient which has been convincingly linked to benefits in memory, liver function, and brain development.6 Unfortunately, this nutrient is lost in food processing, storage, and cooking which makes supplementation highly advisable.

 

Humans deficient in choline have decreased plasma choline concentrations and develop liver dysfunction that is similar to that seen in choline-deficient animals.7

 

Choline has also been proven to reduce fatty infiltration in the liver of alcoholics.8

 

ARTICHOKE LEAF EXTRACT ( with 2% Caffeylquinic acid) is considered a liver protectorate, choleretic, diuretic, and cholesterol-reducing herb.9  Statistically significant reduction of symptoms, such as abdominal pain, bloating, flatulence, and nausea, were reported in various studies.10  Germany's Commission E has authorized its use for the above ailments which reduce liver stress.11

 

Artichoke leaf inhibits cholesterol synthesis by indirect inhibition of the enzyme HMG CoA-reducatase. This is the mode of action utilized by the "statin" drugs such as Mevacor. however, statin drugs have side effects which artichoke leaf does not.12

 

It is of interest that the artichoke is one of the oldest cultivated plants. The ancient Greeks and Romans considered it a valuable digestive aid and reserved it exclusively for consumption by the royal and the rich.13

 

DANDELION ROOT EXTRACT is a natural diuretic for a wide range of conditions such as poor digestion, liver disorders, and high blood pressure. Furthermore, dandelion root is a rich source of potassium, a mineral often lost through the use of other natural and synthetic diuretics.14

 

Dandelion root acts to purify the blood and may prevent or control diabetes mellitus. Dandelion is high in the nutrient inulin which converts to fructose in the presence of hydrochloric acid in the stomach. Fructose forms glycogen in the liver without requiring insulin.15 

 

Dandelion root may eliminate or drastically reduce acid indigestion and gas buildup by cutting the heaviness of fatty foods.16

 

SCHISANDRA BERRY POWDER (Schizandra chinensis), known in China as wu wei zi, is an ancient Chinese medicinal herb for increasing the body's natural ability to fend off chemical, physical, and environmental stresses.17

 

Schisandra fruit has been reported to prevent liver damage and stimulate liver repair and normal liver function. These properties are thought to be related to the ability of the schisandrins to stimulate hepatocyte cell membranes and elevate liver microsomal enzyme activities.18  Liver regeneration has been stimulated in laboratory animals with Schisandra following partial liver removal.19

 

MILK THISTLE (Standardized for 80% Silymarin) is one of the most potent liver-protecting substances known. Silymarin is used for oral treatment of toxic liver damage (induced by alcohol, drugs, or environmental toxins) and for supportive therapy in chronic inflammatory liver diseases and in liver cirrhosis.20, 21, 22

 

It has also been shown that silymarin inhibits leukotriene production which explains its anti-inflammatory effect and that it has an antifibrotic action. Clinical trials confirm the positive effects found in experimental studies.23, 24

 

The most interesting effect of milk thistle components on the liver is their ability to stimulate protein synthesis.25  This stimulation results in an increase in the production of new liver cells to replace the damaged old ones. Astoundingly enough, silymarin does not have a stimulatory effect on malignant liver tissue!26

 

BUPLEURUM ROOT (Bupleurum falcatum) is found in a large number of formulas used for treating liver disease. The active ingredients of Bupleurum are steroid-like compounds known as saikosaponins. These compounds have diverse pharmacological activity including lowering cholesterol levels, preventing liver damage, and improving liver functions in chronic hepatitis.27, 28, 29
