A first for New Zealand, non-gluten, non-GMO, vegan, LipoRevolution™ Estro Detox Ultra, an easy to take dietary supplement supporting both Phase l and Phase ll Liver detoxification.
Our Liposomal Estro Detox Ultra contains a complex variety of natural ingredients that are found to support hormone balance for Men and Women with advanced delivery liquid liposomal technology, working harmoniously to balance your endocrine system.
Selenium is a nutrient that is prominently deficient in New Zealand soil and so in turn our produce is deficient in this nutrient, Selenium is important due to its critical roles in reproduction, thyroid hormone metabolism, DNA synthesis, and protection from oxidative damage and infection . Selenium and female reproductive system have been closely linked; Selenium is an essential nutrient of fundamental importance in human biology . Selenium deficiency implicated in Selenium miscarriage and infertility, in one trial, 100% of infertile women achieved pregnancy after selenium supplementation .
Pyridoxal 5’-Phosphate (P-5-P), the active form of vitamin B6, is a coenzyme in a variety of enzymatic reactions and can be directly utilized by the body without conversion. P-5-P is simply a more efficient form of pyridoxine and avoids the hepatic conversion processes needed to create the active enzyme form. This would likely be beneficial for those with impaired liver function. Ultimately, the case for P5P comes down to it being a bio-optimized form of Vitamin B6 that our body can put to work immediately. Using P-5-P has been linked to reduced inflammation , boosted immune response , supporting positive mood and relaxation , promotion of healthy red blood cell formation , and increased plasma magnesium . Researchers have found that women who take a combination of Magnesium and activated B6 vitamins experienced reduced premenstrual stress symptoms, these results were significantly improved in comparison to placebo groups .
Zinc is a trace element that is necessary for a healthy immune system, a lack of Zinc can make a person more susceptible to disease and illness; this is due to its role in activating T lymphocytes (T cells) which control and regulate immune responses and attack infected or cancerous cells . Only a small amount of Zinc is required to reap the benefits as it is responsible for a large variety of functions in the human body and helps stimulate the activity of at least 100 different enzymes .
Calcium D-glucarate is the calcium salt of D-glucaric acid, oral supplementation of calcium D-glucarate has been shown to inhibit beta-glucuronidase, an enzyme produced by colonic microflora and involved in Phase II liver detoxification . Elevated beta-glucuronidase activity is associated with an increased risk for various cancers, particularly hormone-dependent cancers such as breast, prostate, and colon cancers . Other potential clinical applications of oral calcium D-glucarate include regulation of estrogen metabolism and as a lipid-lowering agent, studies have shown that ingesting calcium D-glucarate lowers serum estrogen levels, because many breast cancers are estrogen-dependent, calcium D-glucarate’s ability to affect estrogen and other hormone levels has led to Phase I clinical trials at several major cancer centers in the United States .
Taurine is a conditional essential amino acid, naturally synthesized within the body in small amounts and found abundantly within the brain, muscles, retinas, heart and blood cells . It serves as an essential building block for certain proteins and processes such as bile salt synthesis (which is essential in liver detoxification), and without it must be attained by additional supplementation .
Methionine is an amino acid that is used to prevent liver damage in acetaminophen (Tylenol) poisoning. Other proven uses for methionine include, increasing the acidity of urine, treating liver disorders, and improving wound healing. In a study by James D. Finkelstein it was found that methionine has a proven role in liver metabolism aiding in the methylation cycle .
Chasteberry or Vitex Agnus-Castus is a popular herbal supplement used to treat a variety of ailments, it is most popularly used to treat PMS and menopausal symptoms. Researchers believe that chasteberry works by decreasing levels of the hormone prolactin, this helps rebalance other hormones, including estrogen and progesterone — thus reducing PMS symptoms    .
Maca root – Maca root powder from the Maca plant (Lepidium meyenii), it is also sometimes referred to as Peruvian ginseng. Maca has been widely used to enhance fertility and improve sex drive, studies suggest that after a minimum of 6 weeks on Maca root powder an improvement in sex drive and sperm quality can be expected . One review of four studies in menopausal women found that Maca helped alleviate menopausal symptoms, including hot flashes and interrupted sleep . Additionally, Maca root has been proven to improve mood and reduce anxiety .
Glucuronolactone is a small molecule that contributes to the structure of connective tissues, it is an essential precursor of ascorbic acid (Vitamin C) synthesis and detoxicant. Glucuronolactone combines with toxic substances and converts them into water-soluble conjugates that can be excreted in urine, it may have hepatoprotective effects in this capacity meaning that it can function to protect and maintain a healthy liver .
Glycine is one of three amino acids that your body uses to make glutathione, a powerful antioxidant that assists to protect your cells against oxidative damage caused by free radicals, which are thought to underlie many diseases . Without enough glycine, your body produces less glutathione, which could negatively affect how your body handles oxidative stress over time. In addition, because glutathione levels naturally decline with age, ensuring that you get enough glycine as you get older may benefit your health .
Glutathione is an amino acid with strong antioxidant properties produced naturally by the liver, it plays key roles in metabolism and it has been suggested that glutathione could help treat nonalcoholic fatty liver disease due to its antioxidant properties and potential to detoxify, however more research is required .
Turmeric contains curcuminoids, the most important of which is curcumin an active ingredient within LipoRevolutionTM Estro Detox Ultra. Curcumin is the main active ingredient in turmeric, it has powerful anti-inflammatory effects and is a very strong antioxidant . It blocks NF-kB, a molecule that travels into the nuclei of your cells and turns on genes related to inflammation, NF-kB is believed to play a major role in many chronic diseases .
N-acetyl cysteine (NAC) is a supplement form of cysteine, cysteine is a semi-essential amino acid. NAC is valued primarily for its role in antioxidant production, along with two other amino acids — glutamine and glycine — NAC is needed to make and replenish glutathione. Glutathione is one of the body’s most important antioxidants, which helps neutralize free radicals that can damage cells and tissues in your body. Due to its anti-inflammatory and detoxification features NAC is an essential amino acid that has been widely linked to supporting liver health and function .
