A bit about each product:
- BitterX: BitterX is a whole body bitter tonic and potent blend of four herbs, which builds on the immensely popular Quicksilver Scientific product, Dr. Shade's Bitters No. 9. This new medley contains four digestive, liver, gallbladder, and kidney supportive botanicals, including dandelion, gentian, solidago, and myrrh. Sweet orange essential oil is added for flavor and it can have a calming, uplifting effect.*
- BPC 157: Body Protection Compounds (BPC)-157 is a naturally occurring peptide in human gastric fluid, but is also found in small amounts in the gastric juice of other mammals. BPC-157 is a peptide composed of 15 amino acids and designed to be quickly absorbed by the body. BPC-157 has enhanced stability compared to other peptides, and is one of the only peptides that is available to be taken as an oral supplement. Because BPC-157 is stable gastrically, it can be taken with or without food once a day. Clinical research has shown BPC-157’s benefits for mental, gastrointestinal, cardiac, and autoimmune health.*
- Milk Thistle: Milk Thistle or Silybum marianum, has been utilized worldwide for over 2,000 years for its remarkable ability to support the liver and to aid healthy digestive function. Milk thistle contains three phytonutrients (silybin, silydianin, and silychristin) together known as silymarin. Silymarin may prevent the absorption of compounds into the liver’s cells. It can support healthy digestive function and bile flow, and can help protect the body’s stores of glutathione, our primary endogenous antioxidant.*
- R-Lipoic Acid: is the most active isomer of alpha-lipoic acid, which is a versatile antioxidant. It has important characteristics that contribute to liver, nerve, and eye health. Alpha-lipoic acid occurs naturally as a 50/50 mixture of R-lipoic acid (R-ALA) and S-lipoic acid (S-ALA). R-lipoic acid by itself functions as an essential cofactor for many enzymes involved in energy production. It also has characteristics, including significant antioxidant effects, that help contribute to liver, brain, nerve, and eye health.* Studies indicate that supplements containing only R-lipoic acid appear to be better absorbed than supplements containing both R-lipoic acid and S-lipoic acid, with results showing twice as much ALA appearing in the bloodstream after an oral dose of R-Lipoic acid. Because R-Lipoic acid is the form best utilized by the body, Thorne provides R-lipoic acid bound to sodium, providing it in its most stable, absorbable form.*
