Comprehensive activated vitamins, Albion chelated major and minor minerals, complete pea and rice proteins, Aminogen plant digestive enzymes, and all the Phase 2 detoxification cofactors for Whole Body Detox...
Life Support™ contains macro and micronutrients, as well as a host of ingredients (some patented or proprietary)
that support fatty acid metabolism, gastrointestinal health, and anti-inflammatory pathways. Activated
co-factors support mitochondrial energy production needed for biotransformation. This formula’s ingredients
inhibit phase 1 detoxification, up-regulate and support each phase 2 pathway, and provide antioxidant support.
VegaPro™ is a proprietary blend of rice protein concentrate and pea protein isolate, L-Glutamine,
Glycine, Taurine, and Aminogen®. The latter is a patented, natural, plant-derived enzyme system clinically proven
to increase protein digestibility and amino acid absorption. Generation of glutathione and sulfation co-factors that
are vital for phase 2 conjugation requires an array of amino acids. The combination of pea protein and rice protein
achieves an Amino Acid Score of 100%.
L-Glutamine, crucial in nitrogen metabolism, is hepatoprotective, supports intestinal cell proliferation, and plays
a key role in the preservation of gut barrier function. Glycine, a building block for other amino acids, is needed
for bile synthesis. Taurine, a derivative of sulfur-containing cysteine, is also important for synthesis of bile salts
and helps stabilize cell membranes.
Ginger root, included to support the release of bile from the gallbladder, also acts at several sites to inhibit
PGE(2)production. Fiber Blend (Inulin from non-GMO Chicory, Beta Glucans, Oat Fiber, Corn Bran)
provides fibers that favorably impact intestinal flora and the formation of short-chain fatty acids. Beta glucans and
lignins impact the binding of bile acids. MeadowPure™ organic flax seeds, which possess excellent oxidative
stability, provide lignins and soluble fiber, as well as antioxidants, anti-inflammatory omega 3s, and alpha linolenic
Ellagic Acid (from pomegranate extract) prevents over-induction of CYP1A enzymes, works at the gene level to
induce synthesis of glutathione-S-transferases and other phase 2 activities, binds directly to toxins, and protects
DNA and hepatocytes. Watercress combines PEITC (a phase 1 enzyme inhibitor) with at least three phase 2
enzyme inducers: PEITC, 7-methylsulfinylheptyl ITC, and 8-methylsulfinyloctyl ITC. Green Tea catechins are
not only antioxidants, but also appear to act as modulators of phase 1 and phase 2 detoxification.
Folic acid, methylcobalamin, betaine, and methylsulfonylmethane are present to support methylation.
Preventium®, a patented form of potassium hydrogen d-glucarate, supports glucuronidation. Sulfation is
supported by methylsulfonylmethane, alpha lipoic acid, and sodium sulfate. Acetylation is supported by
d-calcium pantothenate, pyridoxal-5’-phosphate, and magnesium. Pyridoxal-5’-phosphate, along with folic
acid, methylcobalamin, and glycine, which all support amino acid conjugation, are vital for the detoxification of
