An optimally functioning liver is critical for ALL aspects of health. It’s almost impossible to have a discussion about the hardest working organ in the body without your liver being nominated. You probably already give your liver credit for filtering toxins out of your blood stream 24/7, but did you know it’s also responsible for breaking down these toxins? Aside from dealing with toxins, your liver is also responsible for a host of other activities, including methylating B vitamins, helping to regulate blood sugar, converting excess blood glucose to triglycerides, creating cholesterol, storing glycogen, creating clotting proteins, creating bile, and much more. These are big, often dirty jobs, and in today’s toxic environment, your liver can use all the help it can get!
Milk thistle is your liver’s best friend. Milk thistle is an amazing herb that is famous for supporting liver health. Used for over nearly 2000 years, it contains a polyphenol called silymarin that has a powerful propensity for liver cells. In the liver, milk thistle helps protect liver cells from the damage done by toxins and heavy metals that the liver works hard to metabolize and detoxify. Milk thistle also supports bile flow and viscosity, and supports healthy levels of inflammation in the liver. Excellent for far more than just liver support however, milk thistle has also been shown to support healthy cholesterol levels and support healthy mucous membranes.
Amy Myers Liver Support formula contains a potent dose of Alpha Lipoic Acid. As said before, your liver can use all the help it can get, and lipoic acid does not run from a fight. Alpha lipoic acid is another amazing free radical scavenger that is extremely unique in that it is both fat and water soluble. This means that it can often go where other antioxidants cannot. It also helps recycle antioxidant vitamins C and E, as well as amplifies the free radical fighting power of CoQ10 and glutathione! All of which are vital in supporting the liver in its fight to protect your body from a constant barrage of toxins.
Selenium isn’t your average antioxidant. This trace mineral powerhouse is not only a potent antioxidant, it also helps kickstart and maintain your body’s glutathione production cycle. Aside from protecting your liver tissue (and the rest of your body!) from oxidative stress, it also helps support normal inflammation levels and helps detoxify liver enzymes.

Liver Support is appropriate any time of the day, morning or night. Amy Myers generally have my patients take it with breakfast and lunch with a full glass of water.
Is Liver Support safe for pregnant women, breastfeeding mothers, and children?
Amy Myers always recommend speaking with your child’s pediatrician or nutritionist if you have concerns about any of the ingredients or adjusting the dosing for them. And, as always, we recommend reaching out to your physician, midwife, or other qualified healthcare practitioner if you have any questions or concerns about using it while pregnant or breastfeeding.
Can I take Liver Support while I am addressing gut issues or following a detox protocol?
Yes! Amy Myers custom formulated Liver Support formula to complement and support your liver, and this is especially important when you are undertaking any kind of detox protocol! During detox, your liver is working double time and is exposed to and responsible for metabolizing a much higher volume of toxins than on a normal day to day basis. While liver support is great year round, it’s even more vital when your liver is taking on a greater workload!
