The liver plays vital roles in digestion, metabolism and the elimination of toxins from the body. Our largest organ produces bile to aid in the digestion of fats. Bile also helps eliminate excess cholesterol and toxins.
The liver stores and processes nutrients, including excess carbohydrates (as glycogen). When blood sugar levels drop, sugar is released by the liver to bring levels back up. Your liver also makes cholesterol to transport fats to and from body cells.
The liver is the primary detoxification center, breaking down metabolic waste and environmental toxins so they can be eliminated. As it filters the blood (over a liter of it each minute), the liver removes toxins and microbes from the body before they can damage cells. Chemicals in the body attach to cholesterol and are transported to the liver. Toxins are then eliminated through normal waste-removal channels.
A healthy liver can process heavy metals, cleaning solvents, gasoline fumes and toxic household cleaning products. But these can severely tax or overwhelm a dysfunctional liver.

The Hepatic Pack includes one bottle each of these products:
Milk Thistle Combination boasts liver-protecting and free-radical fighting ingredients, including milk thistle seed extract, N-Acetyl-Cysteine (NAC), dandelion root, choline bitartrate and inositol. NAC optimizes the production of glutathione in the liver, which is used in the breakdown and elimination of toxins. NAC, a powerful antioxidant, protects against oxidative damage. Milk thistle contains silymarin, which has shown remarkable ability to help liver cells regenerate and stabilize liver cell membranes.
Chinese Liver Balance TCM is a “harmonizing” Chinese formula that helps cleanse the liver, nourish the blood, improve digestive function and promote detoxification and elimination. It contains 12 Chinese herbs, including scute, peony, bupleurum and atractylodes—used traditionally to support both the nervous and digestive systems during tension and stress.
Nature’s Three contains various forms of soluble and insoluble fiber—psyllium, oat fiber and apple fiber—to support digestive health, promote
regularity and relieve occasional constipation. Increasing your dietary fiber can help the liver as fiber binds with toxins for removal.
