Did you Know? YOUR LIVER IS RESPONSIBLE FOR OVER 500 JOBS EVERY DAY, but let’s start with the highlights.
Top 5 Reasons to take Liver Detox Supplement:
??COVERT HORMONES TO THEIR USABLE FORM (AKA T4 TO T3). For example, 70% of T4 is converted to T3 in the liver, which stalls when the liver is congested, resulting in thyroid disease and adrenal symptoms.
?? PREPARE HARMFUL CHEMICALS FOR DETOX THROUGH COLON, SKIN, BLADDER PATHWAYS. Especially pesticides, heavy metals, petrochemicals, GMO’s, pharmaceutical byproducts, and beauty toxins.
??PROVIDES IMMUNITY AGAINST INFECTIONS by removing bacteria from the blood
??COVERTS GLUCOSE TO ENERGY AND STARCH FOR STORAGE
??RELEASES BILE TO DIGEST FAT, MAKE HORMONES AND ABSORB FAT SOLUBLE VITAMINS (LIKE A, D, K)
SO WHEN WE DON’T ABC DAILY IN SOME WAY (ALWAYS BE CLEANSING), THE LIVER GETS MORE TOXIC AND MAKES US FEEL TOX-SICK AND EITHER LIKE THE WALKING DEAD OR LITERALLY DEAD!
I recommend you take this supplement every day because: If you’re not a liver, you’re a Die’er.
Visual: A person without a healthy liver, is like a sink without a functional garbage disposal.
“The odds are 100% that things will go down the drain, and without a reliable disposal, there’s likely to be back up. Liver congestion is among the leading health problems, yet conventional medicine rarely refers to it, nor do doctors have a reliable way to detect and diagnose such a condition.”
EVERY symptom, EVERY condition, EVERY diagnosis involved the liver in some way. The liver is your FIRST line of defense, that attempts to protect you from toxins that cause imbalances, inflammation and insufficiencies, as well as converts hormones to their usable form, such as T4 to T3. So if you want to fix ANY health issue, your liver is the FIRST place to start.
But it’s also important to simultaneously give your body the energy to do so by turning the lights of hormone production and metabolism, as the Adrenal and thyroid support, Hormone Hottie does. The liver cannot do its job properly in a stagnant, tired body. I recommend you take these 2 together as well as the Beauty Builder Multi, since it contains a handful of key minerals, vitamins and enzymes that optimize your liver and detox pathways plus endocrine glands and hormone optimization.
Top 20 Symptoms of a Congested Liver & Gall Bladder:
- skin irritation
- weak eyesight
- unhealthy bowel movements
- irregular menstrual cycles
- estrogen dominance
- recurring headaches
- unexplainable weight gain
- loss of energy
- sudden aging
- elevated cholesterol levels
- most allergies
- constricted blood vessels
- bloated abdomen
- fluid retention
- gastrointestinal trouble
- breathing difficulties
- poor memory and concentration
- pain in the joints or elsewhere in the body
- brittle bones
- any other major illness such as heart disease, cancer, auto immunity, diabetes or Alzheimer's disease.
If you experience major, persisting health problems, either physical or emotional, your liver may be congested with toxic compounds that are trapped within clumps of hardened bile.
Almost all health conditions, beauty problems and premature aging are closely linked with declined liver performance which most often is elusive to blood tests. Congestion in the bile ducts of the liver undermines the body's effort to make proper use of the food you eat. This, in turn, may lead to numerous physical ailments and accentuated expressions of discomfort, including fear, anger, impatience, greed, depression, dis-ease and cynicism.
Cleansing the liver of existing obstructions and impurities can help restore balance, vitality and happiness in every facet of your life.
A buildup of toxic substances will damage liver cells and other organs, glands and systems in the body, leading to increased risk for cancer and a variety of other degenerative diseases. In today’s toxic world, with the prevalence of drug use, chemicals, exogenous hormones and pollution, it’s hard to imagine a case where the liver is not involved to some extent.

More about the Ingredients:
Detox Diva synergistically combines nutrients, herbal extracts and other compounds that have positive effects on the body’s detoxification processes. The ingredients in this product were selected for their ability to combat free radicals and help detoxify harmful substances including heavy metals. This formula contains multiple nutrients known to raise glutathione levels, making it helpful for supporting phase II liver detoxification.
Designed to aid in the product of metallothionein, a cysteine-rich protein with potent antioxidant effects and heavy metal binding capacity, including to cadmium and copper,
Metallothionein has even greater free radical quenching capacity than glutathione for certain specific free radicals, such as the hydroxyl radical. Taken as a whole, the ingredients in Detox Diva have specific roles in the mitigation of heavy metal toxicity and can improve the mobilization and excretion of harmful compounds when used in conjunction with standard chelating agents.
Lipoic Acid: a sulfur-containing compound that exhibits amphipathic antioxidant properties (it is effective in both water- and lipid-based environments). This unique property allows it to quench free radicals in hydrophilic and lipophilic environments alike—cytosol, plasma membranes, serum, and lipoproteins.4,5 Lipoic acid (LA) is an “antioxidant of antioxidants.” When reduced to dihydrolipoic acid (DHLA), it serves to regenerate vitamins E and C, glutathione (GSH), and coenzyme Q10.5,6 Coupled together, oxidized and reduced LA have a greater redox potential than oxidized and reduced GSH, leading some researchers to refer to lipoic acid as a “universal antioxidant.”5 An additional effect of LA’s antioxidant capacity is its role in binding free, redox-active metals. LA has been shown to bind copper, manganese, zinc, and lead, while DHLA is effective in binding copper, zinc, lead, mercury, cadmium, and iron.5-7 Lipoic acid may increase the need for biotin by lowering levels of biotin dependent enzymes; thus, this formula includes biotin as LA should always be taken with biotin.
Selenium, Zinc: Selenium is needed for synthesis of at least five isoforms of glutathione peroxidase (GPx), which reduces damaging hydrogen peroxide to water.10,11 Selenium is also needed for the thioredoxin reductase enzyme family, considered to be among the major antioxidant enzymes and redox regulators in mammalian cells.10 Selenium has a key role in protecting against mercury toxicity.12-15 Some of the toxicity symptoms associated with high mercury levels may be due to reduced availability of selenium and the resulting reduction in activity of selenium-dependent enzymes such as GPx and the deiodinase enzyme needed for conversion of T4 to T3 for proper thyroid hormone levels. An adequate supply of selenium may help mitigate the effects of mercury toxicity or possibly even reverse some of the symptoms.12,13 Together with selenium, zinc (bound to methionine) aids in synthesis of metallothionine.
Manganese: a required cofactor for mitochondrial superoxide dismutase (MnSOD), a key antioxidant enzyme for protecting fragile fatty acids in mitochondrial membranes against lipid peroxidation. Manganese is also a cofactor for the arginase enzyme in the urea cycle, so it plays a role in proper dispensation of normal metabolic wastes.19 The body’s concentration of manganese is especially high in mitochondria and is also high in organs that have a large role in detoxification, including the liver and kidneys.
Molybdenum: an essential cofactor in multiple enzymes involved in detoxification, such as sulfite oxidase, xanthine oxidase and aldehyde oxidase. Among other roles, these are responsible for normal breakdown of purines and sulfur-containing amino acids, oxidizing harmful sulfites to sulfates, and metabolism of pharmaceutical drugs and xenobiotics. Deficiency in sulfite oxidase may result from inadequate molybdenum, potentially leading to sulfite/chemical sensitivity and alterations in CYP450 activities that affect metabolism of various drugs.
Turmeric and Green Tea Extract: inducers of various CYP450 enzymes to support effective detoxification. These compounds also induce the Nrf2 pathway (nuclear factor erythroid 2–related factor 2), “an emerging regulator of cellular resistance to oxidants.” “Nrf2-linked pathways are involved in protective mechanisms against oxidative stress by regulating antioxidant and phase II detoxifying genes.” Activation of Nrf2 appears to protect against chemically-induced apoptosis and promote mitochondrial biogenesis.
Vitamin E: a fat-soluble antioxidant that protects cell membranes and lipoproteins (including LDL) from oxidative damage.28 Human and animal studies indicate that vitamin E supplementation helps prevent oxidation of GSH and increases its levels in tissues.
Vitamin C: a potent free radical scavenger biochemically intertwined with GSH. Glutathione recycles oxidized dehydroascorbate back to ascorbate and GSH deficiency is associated with low tissue ascorbate levels. Vitamin C supplementation has been shown to increase GSH levels in healthy adults, and the combination of vitamin C with vitamin E may have additive effects. This combination significantly increased activity of superoxide dismutase and GPx while decreasing malondialdehyde (a marker for lipid peroxidation) in patients with cardiovascular disease.
Grape Seed Extract: a more potent antioxidant than vitamin C or E. Grape seed extract (GSE) contains the antioxidant compound oligomeric proanthocyanidin (OPC), which has been shown to have free radical scavenging properties and to inhibit lipid peroxidation. Animal studies show that GSE protects against cadmium-induced organ and tissue damage partly through Nrf2-related mechanisms and also protects against hepatotoxicity induced by perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA), an environmental contaminant known to be a carcinogen and endocrine disruptor.
N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine (NAC) and L-Leucine: The availability of cysteine is the rate-limiting factor for GSH re-synthesis. NAC is a primary source of cysteine and a precursor to GSH, and NAC itself is an antioxidant, with the sulfhydryl group (–SH) within the NAC molecule directly scavenging reactive oxygen species. (Lipoic acid also provides cysteine.) NAC plays a major role in healthy detoxification. Leucine, when taken with cysteine, prevents mercury from crossing the blood-brain barrier (BBB) and may also help protect the central nervous system from toxicity of other heavy metals
