NutriClean® HepatoCleanse is a dynamic way to help the liver reach optimal levels of functioning and detoxification. As a part of NutriClean 7-Day Cleansing System, HepatoCleanse can be used as a part of the system or alone as a maintenance dietary supplement, which contains a unique, proprietary formula designed to help you maintain proper liver health.
HepatoCleanse capsules are a combination of special botanicals and nutrients that can help support healthy liver function. * The liver is the body's primary filter for toxins. The filtering process is acheived through a coordinated effort of two families of enzymes known as cytochrome P450s and conjugation enzymes. These enzymes can underperform due to a poor diet, excessive alcohol consumption, and chronic stress. The cytochrome P450 enzymes split molecular oxygen (O2) and create activated oxygen radicals to react with a foreign compound. The conjugation enzyme can then act upon the oxidized compound and add other types of molecules to make the foreign compound more water soluble and excretable.*
Milk Thistle Seed (extract standardized to 80 % silymarin)
Milk thistle promotes liver and gallbladder health by providing free radical scavenging activity and support for normal liver cell regeneration. Milk thistle has shown to demonstrate strong, supportive activity when various toxins challenge liver cells. Milk thistle promotes a healthy liver by supporting the normal regeneration of liver tissue and helping the body maintain helthy levels of bile cholesterol. It contains the compound, silymarin, a powerful antioxidant that scavenges free radicals. Additionally, it has shown to promote kidney health and may support the prostate gland. The name silymarin is a general term for the active chemicals known as flavonolignans. These chemicals are only in the seeds of milk thistle plant. Silymarin, as well as an isolated form of flavonolignan known as silybin, can support a healthy liver and promote the body’s natural ability to combat toxins such as alcohol, environmental toxins and poisons. There is preliminary evidence that silymarin may support healthy serum transaminase levels and liver health. There are many studies that indicate silymarin’s effectiveness in promoting cleansing the liver.*
N-Acetyl Cysteine (NAC) comes from the amino acid cysteine. One of NAC’s key functions is its metabolism for intracellular glutathione (GTH), one of the body’s primary cellular antioxidants. GTH not only acts as a reducing agent and antioxidant in the body, it is also known to detoxify chemicals into less harmful compounds, support the normal transport of nutrients to the lymphocytes and phagocytes (two major types of immune cells), and promote the health of cell membranes. Many experts consider NAC to be a top source of increasing GTH levels. Additionally, reviews of studies that confirm NAC’s conversion of GTH in the body show that oral NAC supplementation can enhance levels of glutathione in the liver, plasma and the bronchioles of the lungs. The body produces NAC naturally.*
Dandelion root has shown in studies to support a healthy liver, kidney, gallbladder and digestive system. The bitter properties of dandelion promote healthy liver function by supporting healthy bile production in the gallbladder as well as bile flow from the liver. The support of normal bile flow may also help support healthy fat metabolism in the body. Dandelion root may also help support a healthy appetite and a healthy digestive system, and dandelion compounds have shown to protect against oxidative stresses and support normal antioxidant enzyme status.*
Many experts believe garlic may help maintain normal cholesterol-levels and normal triglyceride levels. Experts also believe garlic supports digestive health, and its compounds may contain antioxidant properties. Additionally, the use of garlic supports the cardiovascular system.*

Herbalists have long used rosemary to support healthy energy levels and help with normal digestion. It is also used to support a healthy appetite, liver and gallbladder, and help maintain normal blood pressure. Some less than conclusive evidence hints that rosemary, or its constituents, may have antioxidant effects.*
Ginger contains a root from which uses for this plant originate. For years, ginger has been used medicinally to support gastrointestinal health and healthy bowel movements. Ginger may also support a healthy cardiovascular system.*
Green Tea Leaf Extract
Green tea is long known for its health properties for centuries in India and China. A number of beneficial health effects are related to regular consumption of green tea. The active components in green tea are a family of polyphenols and flavonols that possess antioxidant activity, including tannins and catechins. Several catechins are present in major quantities: epicatechin (EC), epigallocatechin (EGC), epicatechin gallate (ECG), and epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG). EGCG appears to be the most powerful of all the catechins. Green tea extract may also provide cardiovascular system support by helping to maintain normal cholesterol levels and triglycerides levels.*
Hyssop (aerial parts)
The herb hyssop (Hyssop officinalis) has a long history in both religion and health. Its health benefit is promoting digestive health.*

In traditional Ayurvedic care, turmeric is thought to support overall health. It is used as a dietary supplement to support gastrointestinal and liver health. The primary active compound in turmeric is curcumin, which helps deliver its antioxidant properties.*
Why is the liver so important?
The human body is continuously digesting toxins through food, lifestyle and the environment. The liver plays an important role in helping eliminate these toxins from the body. The liver functions as a detoxifier in several ways: it filters the blood to remove high molecular weight toxins from circulation, enzymatically inactivates toxins, and converts fat-soluble toxins into water-soluble so they can be excreted in the urine. Lifestyle factors that we may or may not be able to control (e.g. genetics, diet, environment, stress) can influence the functioning of the liver.
How does NutriClean® HepatoCleanse support normal liver detoxification?
NutriClean® HepatoCleanse is a dynamic way to help the liver reach optimal levels of functioning and detoxification. It not only supports the health of the liver and gallbladder, it is also a strong antioxidant and helps maintain healthy glutathione levels, which help support the liver’s natural defense system. The powerful blend of herbs and botanicals in HepatoCleanse goes a long way in supporting liver health and promoting the liver’s normal detoxification of toxins.*
What is glutathione and how does it support the health of the liver?
The ingredients found in HepatoCleanse help maintain normal glutathione levels. Glutathione is necessary to the enzymatic reactions that must take place for proper filtration and elimination of bodily toxins. Glutathione is also known as a phase II enzyme in that it bonds with separate phase I enzymes in making the filtered products more soluble for elimination through the bile or the kidneys.*
I don’t drink a lot of alcohol. Do I need to take NutriClean® HepatoCleanse?
No one is exempt from the harmful chemicals, pollutants and hidden preservatives found in everyday life that can wreak havoc on an otherwise healthy liver. The liver is a precious organ and deserves the best treatment in the way of maintenance. The ingredients found in HetpatoCleanse support the liver in its efforts to cleanse the blood and filter out substances that can have an impact on all body systems and organs.*
