This formula contains all the necessary ingredients to intensely enhance the production of intracellular glutathione, the most critical intracellular antioxidant. Extracellular glutathione concentrations are also increased by the addition of pre-formed glutathione.
Since collaboration of antioxidant systems is critically important, it further contains curcumin, a potent anti-inflammatory and antioxidant compound that will, together with milk thistle extract and the critical antioxidants Lipoic acid and Selenium, provide a fairly broad protection from oxidative and inflammatory insults to liver cells, thus protecting healthy function and possibly inhibiting the process of fibrosis, that is fueled by hepatic inflammation.
The amino acid Glutamine that is also provided will help gastrointestinal health, reducing the impact of toxic stimuli to the liver.
When the body is subjected to prolonged illness or physical or mental stress, many critical protective elements become depleted, slowing or preventing full recovery. Replenishment of these components, the building blocks required for their manufacture, the co-factors necessary for their function, and the modulation of the inflammatory stress response can speed recovery and optimize future health and performance. HeptoBoost addresses all these factors and optimizes recovery from multiple directions.
HeptoBoost's unique combination formula consists of:
- N-Acetylcysteine, Glutamic Acid, Glycine, the three building blocks of the master intracellular antioxidant Glutathione
- Intact Glutathione to instantly provide circulating levels of this protective antioxidant
- Vitamin C and Selenium, essential co-factors in the synthesis and regeneration of Glutathione
- R-Alpha Lipoic Acid - a critical membrane soluble antioxidant and coenzyme in mitochondrial function, that co-operates with Glutathione and Vitamin C in the safe elimination of free radicals and reactive oxygen species that are formed under conditions of stress
- Curcumin, a potent and natural anti-inflammatory and immune regulating agent
- Glutamine, an amino acid which is essential for optimum support of intestinal health and muscle regeneration
HeptoBoost has been formulated with the highest quality ingredients to ensure effectiveness:
- Our N-acetyl cysteine is made in Germany and does not come from human, avian or pig sources, like almost all other NAC products available today do
- Our Glutathione is produced to the highest quality standards in Japan
- We use only the active purified R-isomer of Alpha Lipoic Acid, unlike many others which use the less potent and potentially inhibitory R/L mixture
- Finally, our Curcumin is the most researched type from India, and has found to be eight times more bioavailable than standard curcumin
We have determined the most researched ingredients from their respective parts of the world, found the absolute highest quality manufacturers, and brought them together in a formula which is designed to optimize health and recovery.
HeptoBoost can be taken as a stand-alone product to provide substantial antioxidant, immune regulating, and cellular health effects required for bodies under prolonged and extreme conditions. Or it can be taken in conjunction with the other Hepatitis Technologies products to provide maximal levels of antioxidant, immune regulating, and cellular health effects.
HeptoBoost's protective and recovery enhancing properties make it an essential component to optimize any training plan or treatment therapy.
