Description: LV-GB Complex provides support for liver and gallbladder function by providing lipotropic substances to aid in the elimination of fatty substances from the liver, as well as promoting proper bile flow.
Who Should Take LV-GB Complex?
Patients without a gallbladder, patients needing to improve liver or gallbladder function, those with inability to handle fatty foods and those with bloating, gas, GI distress, or skin problems. This synergistic formula will aid fat digestion and improve absorption of fat soluble vitamins. This product is excellent for detoxification support.
Who Should Not Take LV-GB Complex?
Patients experiencing acute upper abdominal pain or are known to have a bile duct obstruction should not take LV-GB Complex.
Key Ingredients: Critical catalysts of hepatic detoxification enzymes are included (i.e.: pyridoxyl-5-phosphate form of B6 and B12). These are mixed with a combination of hepatic (aid the liver) and cholagogue (aid bile flow) herbs, such as Milk Thistle, Greater Celandine, Dandelion, Fringe Tree, Artichoke, and Beet root for optimal processing and elimination of toxins.
Dandelion (Taraxicum) is a well-established cholagogue (stimulates bile flow), diuretic and
appetite stimulant. Milk Thistle (Silymarin) is a well-researched protective herb for the hepatocytes (liver cells), and has even demonstrated the ability to promote the regeneration of liver cells in subjects with hepatitis and other liver disorders. It can also aid in the flow of bile to promote optimal gallbladder function. Greater Celandine (Chelidonium majus), Fringe Tree (Chionanthus virginicus), and Artichoke (Cynara scolymus) can reduce pain in the bile ducts and the gastrointestinal tract by virtue of their antispasmodic properties, and they are often traditionally used in liver and gallbladder disorders, including non-obstructive gallstones. Beet Leaf (Beta vulgaris) is a valuable source of betaine (trimethylglycine), which can act to reduce fatty infiltration and degeneration of the liver. LV-GB Complex is designed to also support optimal digestion and assimilation of essential fats and fat soluble vitamins making this formula appropriate for patients who have had their gall bladder removed surgically and patients suffering from skin disorders.
