BioGenesis BioLiv Lipotropic Support Formula, 90 count
BioGenesis BioLiv, 90 capsules
Bio-Liv (Lipotrophic Support Formula) is a comprehensive formula offering a unique blend of lipotrophic nutrients. These lipotrophic nutrients are combined with methyl-donors, antioxidants, and select herbs, such as dandelion, milk thistle, and beet root, that are used to support bile flow and healthy liver function.
PYRIDOXAL 5’-PHOSPHATE (VITAMIN B6) is involved in the metabolism of amino acids and glycogen. It is a coenzyme in the synthesis of nucleic acids, hemoglobin, neurotransmitters (serotonin, dopamine, norepinephrine and gama-aminobutyric acid) and many other compounds. P 5’-P is a coenzyme for over 100 enzymes, including the transaminases (some liver specific) and decarboxylases. Along with folic acid and vitamin B12, vitamin B6 lowers homocysteine, an independent risk factor for cardiovascular dysfunction.
FOLIC ACID, like vitamin B6, is a member of the B vitamin family. B vitamins play key roles in healthy liver detoxification pathways. Folic acid appears to be more important than either B6 or B12 in reducing elevated homocysteine levels. Folate specializes in one carbon or methyl transfers. As such, it aids the liver in establishing healthy methyl transfer functions. Folate is essential for DNA replication and repair.
VITAMIN B12 is part of the trinity of B vitamins shown to reduce the risk of arteriosclerosis and coronary heart disease. It does this through its role in lowering homocysteine levels. B12, along with folate, is involved with DNA and RNA synthesis, as well as genetic and neurological integrity. B12, folate, and B6 are important cofactors in red blood cell production, as well as healthy detoxification process in the liver.
CHOLINE is necessary for the structure and function of all cells. Choline is the precursor to phosphatidyl choline, sphingomyelin, acetylcholine, and the methyl donor betaine (Trimethylglycine). A low choline diet can result in fatty infiltration of the liver. Choline prevents fat deposition in the liver through its lipotropic action. Other well known lipotropics include folic acid, vitamin B12, and methionine. Choline supports liver function and may be helpful in some disorders of the liver.
METHIONINE supports the production of the antioxidant glutathione.
INOSITOL is also a lipotropic agent. As such it may help protect against increases in total cholesterol and fatty acids in the liver.
TAURINE is an antioxidant that enhances bile acid synthesis.
