BioLivX contains a variety of nutrients and herbs with proven benefits for protecting and enhancing hepatic function, as well as supporting detoxification pathways. Sodium glucuronate supports the phase II pathway of detoxification by providing the precursor for glucuronidation. Conjugation of glucuronic acid with a wide variety of functional groups, including hydroxyls, phenols and carboxyls, is mediated in the liver as well as the intestine.
Licorice has been shown to have hepatoprotective effects, including protection against toxins such as carbon tetra-chloride, as well as from free fatty acid excess which accompanies nonalcoholic fatty liver disease. Alpha-lipoic acid is a water- and fat-soluble antioxidant, involved in hepatoprotection and cell damage prevention. It has the ability to alter the redox status of cells and interact with thiols, increasing hepatic glutathione content.
Silybin is the most active flavonolignan isomer of silymarin, acting through a number of pathways, including antioxidative, antilipid peroxidative, antifibrotic, anti-inflammatory and liver regenerating mechanisms. It also enhances glucuronidation and protects against glutathione depletion. Schizandra, curcumin, and Panax ginseng are also hepatoprotective, support detoxification pathways and enhance liver function.

4 capsules 2 times per day or as directed by a health care practitioner. Consult a health care practitioner for use beyond 2 weeks.
Consult a health care practitioner prior to use if you have diabetes, gallstones or a bile duct obstruction, stomach ulcers or excess stomach acid, a liver disorder, or if you are taking blood thinners or digoxin, or antidepressant medications. Some people may experience insomnia, anxiety, or headaches, in which case discontinue use. Discontinue use and consult a health care practitioner if you experience sweating, paleness, chills, headache, dizziness and/or confusion (as these may be symptoms of serious low blood sugar). Do not use if you are taking thiazide diuretics, cardiac glycosides, corticosteroids, stimulant laxatives or other medications which may aggravate electrolyte imbalance, if you have hypokalemia, high blood pressure, or a kidney or cardiovascular disorder, or if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. Consult a health care practitioner if symptoms persist or worsen. Keep out of reach of children.
Licorice may be contraindicated with the use of potassium depleting diuretics as well as digoxin, due to the potential for hypokalemia. Licorice also slows the metabolic breakdown of steroid hormones, and dosing may need to be monitored closely if taken concomitantly. Alpha-lipoic acid may have a hypoglycemic effect, and may need close monitoring in individuals taking antidiabetic therapy. Because Schisandra induces P450 2C9 activity, medications metabolized by this enzyme, such as warfarin, need close monitoring. Curcumin may also increase bleeding risks if taking anticoagulant medications. Consult a health care practitioner prior to use if you are taking antiplatelet medication, blood thinners or medications that may affect blood sugar levels. Do not use if you are taking thiazide diuretics, cardiac glycosides, corticosteroids, stimulant laxatives or other medications that may aggravate electrolyte imbalance.
