The liver is responsible for a number of essential functions. As a part of the digestive system, the liver helps promote the optimal breakdown of food and converts nutrients from your food into substances the body can use. The liver is also responsible for removing contaminants from your blood and processing potentially harmful substances.
The liver is a vital organ that requires daily maintenance. Everything we ingest has to be detoxified and processed through the liver before it reaches the rest of our body. So a healthy liver gets exerted, and then it regenerates, and it repairs. However, concerns with the liver are becoming more common, and for this reason, it is important to promote liver health now to keep this vital organ flourishing.
The liver is the largest and one of the hardest working organs in the body. Every cell in our body produces compounds, including metabolic waste products, digested nutrients, and toxins. All blood passes through the liver before cycling through the heart to prevent compounds from traveling where they should not be.
The important functions of the liver expose it to a wide variety of substances, which can occasionally strain the liver. The continuous cleansing and detoxification of blood also requires 30,000 enzymatic reactions per second, so even a healthy liver is exerted at times.
Increased consumption of the western diet has contributed to excess salt, sugar, and fat consumption, all of which can negatively impact liver health. Convenience foods are common, but they contribute to excess fat storage around the liver, which affects its ability to perform necessary cleansing functions. Therefore, maintaining a balanced diet is essential for optimal liver function.
The best evidence for what constitutes a healthy liver diet shows that healthy fat (mono- and polyunsaturated), fresh vegetables, fruit, and legumes, as well as fish, are important. Some experts also recommend limiting the consumption of animal products, especially red and processed meat and dairy. In combination with a healthy diet and lifestyle, naturally-derived supplements can further promote liver health.
You made the decision to take care of your liver and better support its function. With the groundbreaking LiverMD®️ formula, you have made the right choice. The clinically effective and bioavailable ingredients will help nourish and maintain liver function for active energy and focus while promoting a healthy metabolism and overall health. Properly using and storing your LiverMD®️ is the next step, so you get the best these ingredients have to offer.
The Right Choice
Milk thistle, specifically its key compound silybin, has been used for centuries to promote liver health. Silybin can help strengthen liver cells, protect the liver, and promote the optimal breakdown of everyday toxins. LiverMD®️ uses Siliphos®️, which combines silybin with phospholipids to form a bio-enhanced, absorbable compound. Studies indicate that this compound has superior absorption compared to generic milk thistle extract, providing optimal liver support.
When To Take Them
It is recommended to take your LiverMD®️ supplement twice daily. The liver is continuously working, and it takes time for the nutrients to be properly absorbed. One capsule should be taken with a meal and a full glass of water, once in the morning and once in the evening. The stomach’s acidic environment can cause issues with the supplement, so it helps to take it with food to provide some additional protection to get through the stomach gauntlet.
How To Store Them
Your LiverMD®️ supplement should be stored in a cool dark place, preferably a refrigerator. Always keep an eye on the expiration date because this will tell you how long the ingredients will be effective. Over time, these naturally -sourced ingredients will break down, becoming ineffective.
It is important to remember that in the same way that it takes time for the liver to process nutrients and detox the body, it also takes time to transform your health. Adherence to a routine that involves taking clinically effective ingredients for three months or more will produce the best results. Digestive and cleansing processes will get better as the ingredients are processed and delivered to your liver. As nutrients rejuvenate liver cells, your body will reap the benefits, as overall health is achieved.
LiverMD®️ contains just the right amount of essential nutrients to support liver detoxification, cleansing, and overall function. As you support daily liver health with each of these powerful ingredients, the optimal function of your liver will, in turn, have a positive impact on numerous additional body functions, including metabolism, energy production, and focus.
This herb has been known to support liver health for centuries, and 1MD Nutrition’s LiverMD®️contains Siliphos®️ Bioavailable Silybin, a highly bioavailable form of silybin for more effective liver support. Silybin has been shown in clinical studies to be 167 times more absorbable than a generic milk thistle extract and to strengthen liver cells, promote antioxidant activity to protect the liver, and support the proper breakdown of toxins.1
This clinically studied vitamin has been shown to effectively promote proper cell division in the liver. The LiverMD®️ formula specifically contains TocoGaia™, a supercharged complex version of vitamin E, with a full spectrum of tocotrienols and tocopherols shown in a 2012 clinical study to have better absorption and bioavailability.2
L-cysteine, an amino acid that replenishes glutathione, an important antioxidant in the body, helps liver cells detoxify themselves. As the liver is constantly exposed to oxidative stress through its detoxification processes, the liver cells have heightened demand for glutathione. L-cysteine encourages production of this important antioxidant enzyme to fight oxidative stress, which helps support liver health and function.3
ALA, another powerful antioxidant, has the ability to protect the liver from oxidative stress and has been shown to help sensitize insulin receptors, which can help promote long-term liver health. ALA may also help support lipid peroxidation in the plasma due to its antioxidant properties.4
Deficiency in this micronutrient is commonly observed in patients with chronic liver conditions, as it has an essential role in thousands of enzymatic reactions and the encouragement of antioxidant activity.* An essential element for your health, zinc also helps with your body’s detoxification process to support the digestive tract and your liver.
This essential trace mineral is a natural antioxidant that helps promote a healthy environment for your liver. Proper uptake of selenium into the liver cells depends on vitamin E5 and in combination with other compounds, such as zinc and ALA, this trace mineral can promote the functioning of these liver cells and can even support the kidneys.
Maximize Your Results by Adding Probiotics
The liver is known for its detoxification abilities, but it is also an integral part of the digestive system. There is a strong relationship between the liver and the gut. And the benefits of LiverMD®️ can be further enhanced when you also support the beneficial bacteria in your gut.
A balanced microbiome is essential for optimal digestion and nutrient absorption, and when you provide nourishment and balance, beneficial bacteria that promote digestive health will also support your liver. The gut supplies the blood and its contents to the liver and promoting proper balance in the microbiome results in maintaining healthy blood content that can benefit liver function .
On the other side of the gut-liver axis, the liver secretes bile, influencing intestinal function and digestive processes. A normally functioning liver should be able to properly assist with food breakdown, resulting in fully-digested food that can nourish gut bacteria and function. With such a close relationship between the liver and the gut flora, it is not uncommon for individuals with poor gut health to also have poor liver function.
Complete ProbioticsTM Platinum contains 51 billion colony-forming units of 11 robust probiotic strains that support the growth of your friendly flora and provide better support for your liver, so it doesn’t have to work as hard. As a result, you enjoy the benefits of optimal detoxification, digestive function, better nutrient absorption, and active energy, all of which make feeling good the new normal.
LiverMD®️ was created to be the most effective liver health supplement available on the market today, formulated with patented ingredients to provide naturally sourced and safe everyday care for your liver. Adding this support to your diet benefits your liver and overall health in a number of ways.
♦ Helps the liver cells function and supports the production of new liver cells

As the largest internal organ, the liver has digestive and non-digestive functions essential for life, so the benefits of LiverMD®️ extend beyond the digestive tract. In addition to promoting the proper breakdown of food through bile action, the liver is responsible for converting stored energy into usable energy and filtering everyday toxins and contaminants from the blood.
Liver health is the best place to send reinforcements for the promotion of better health. Your body relies on the liver to perform essential functions that at the same time expose it to stress and exertion. It is important to take care of the largest and hardest working organ in your body, and with LiverMD®️, your liver gets the nutrients and support it needs to regenerate, so it can better take care of you.
