Metabolic Detox is a product designed to support the liver in detoxification processes. We combine the classic liver botanical Silymarin with antioxidants N-Acetyl Cysteine (NAC), Alpha Lipoic Acid and Selenium.

Medical providers at Defy Medical suggest Metabolic Detox when liver enzymes are elevated.  Elevated liver enzymes may be a sign of a more serious medical problem and can lead to liver damage.  As our medical team continues to monitor each patient’s blood work we have found that Metabolic Detox plays an important role in restoring liver health.  Of course, in addition to the detoxification provided by Metabolic Detox, we must identify and treat the cause. 

Breakdown of ingredients:

Silymarin: Silymarin is a powerful antioxidant said to protect liver cells (and other cells in the body and brain) from toxins. Sylimarin apparently promotes liver cell protein synthesis and decreases the oxidation of glutathione. Milk thistle or silymarin may potentially be beneficial in a number of diseases involving liver disease, if in the early stages. Silymarin is not likely to work in cases of late stage cirrhosis. Early research indicates that silymarin may also have anti-cancer properties+

N-acetyl cysteine (NAC) is an antioxidant that is used as a prescription drug and as a dietary supplement. As a drug, it is given orally to treat acetaminophen overdose. The inhalant and oral solution forms have a mucolytic effect to relieve obstructions in bronchial diseases and in tracheotomy procedures. The oral capsule is marketed as a dietary supplement for its liver protective function and is popular among patients with AIDS and cancer. Clinical studies show NAC can treat drug-induced hepatotoxicity, prevent and treat conditions of oxidative stress and reduced GSH levels caused by diseases such as HIV/AIDS and cancer, and alleviate toxicity from chemo- and radiotherapy.  Results for treatment of chronic lung disease with NAC are mixed. NAC reduces the number of acute exacerbations in patients with chronic bronchopulmonary disease and significantly improves lung function and endurance in COPD patients after exercise, but these effects were not observed in other trials. NAC has no significant benefits in patients with cystic fibrosis or with Lou Gehrig’s disease. NAC has glutamate modulating effect and has been tested as a treatment for psychiatric disorders including addictions and substance abuses. It also reduced symptoms of trichotillomania. Studies in smokers and patients with a history of adenomatous colonic polyps show NAC inhibits cancer biomarker development, although it did not inhibit the formation of secondary head and neck or lung tumors. One study suggests oral NAC can help reduce chemotherapy-induced neuropathy.  NAC is generally safe, but gastrointestinal side effects have been reported. Due to its antioxidant activity, it may interfere with the actions of some chemotherapy drugs. ++

Alpha-Lipoic Acid: Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA) is a fat-soluble and water-soluble antioxidant. In cells, the reduced form can regenerate antioxidants such as glutathione, vitamin C and vitamin

Selenium: Selenium is a trace mineral that incorporates itself into proteins, making the proteins into antioxidant enzymes. These enzymes aid the body in fighting cellular damage from free radicals. Our selenium is in an amino acid form L-selenomethionine, which research indicates is better absorbed and more bioavailable compared to other forms of selenium.
