Twinlab launches liver detox formulated for athletes
GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. Twinlab on Friday announced the launch of Liver D-Tox Fuel, a daily liver detoxifying formula that combines L-glutathione and alpha lipoic acid along with an exclusive Purification Matrix formula.
Designed with athletes in mind, Liver D-Tox is made with natural ingredients and contains no harsh chemicals that interfere with the natural detoxification process.
“Most people would benefit from a detoxifying product, but athletes have additional needs,” stated Thane Slagowski, Twinlab director of research and development. “Not only do they introduce more free radicals into their system through intense exercise, but the additional stresses they put on their body also increase the toxins in their system, making their liver work even harder.”
L-Glutathione and alpha lipoic acid are antioxidants that help to dissolve toxic substances and maintain healthy enzyme levels, the company stated. The Purification Matrix formula contains: kudzu (root) powder and extract, milk thistle (seed) extract (standardized to 80 percent silymarin), artichoke (aerial part) and sarsaparilla (root).
