HepatoCleanse (1260 mg) Proprietary Blend:
The first step in the NutriClean system features HepatoCleanse™ capsules, a combination of special botanicals and nutrients that can help support healthy liver function.* The liver is the body's primary filter for toxins. The filtering process is acheived through a coordinated effort of two families of enzymes known as cytochrome P450s and conjugation enzymes. These enzymes can under perform due to a poor diet, excessive alcohol consumption and chronic stress. The cytochrome P450 enzymes split molecular oxygen (O2) and create activated oxygen radical to react with a foreign compound. The conjugation enzyme can then act upon the oxidized compound, and add other types of molecules to make the foreign compound more water soluble and excretable.
Milk Thistle Seed (extract standardized to 80 % silymarin)
Milk thistle promotes liver and gallbladder health by providing free radical scavenging activity and support of normal liver cell regeneration. Milk thistle has been observed to demonstrate strong, supportive activity when liver cells are challenged by a variety of toxins. Milk thistle supports the normal regeneration of liver tissue, healthy liver and bile cholesterol. Milk thistle contains a compound called silymarin, a potent antioxidant that scavenges harmful free radicals. Additionally, it has been found to promote kidney health and may also support the prostate gland. The name silymarin is a general term for the active chemicals, known as flavonolignans, which are found only in the seeds of milk thistle plant. Silymarin, as well as an isolated form of flavonolignan called silybin, can support a healthy liver and promote the body’s natural ability to combat toxins, such as alcohol, environmental and bacterial toxins, and poisons. There is preliminary evidence that silymarin may support healthy serum transaminase levels and liver health. There have been many studies that indicate silymarin’s effectiveness in cleansing the liver.
N-Acetyl Cysteine (NAC) is derived from the sulfur-containing amino acid, cysteine. It is produced naturally in the body and is found in foods. Along with glutamic acid and glycine, NAC supports the conversion of cysteine into glutathione. Glutiathione is one of the body’s primary cellular antioxidants. NAC has indicated that it enhances the immune system, detoxifies certain substances, supports a healthy heart and reduces exercise fatigue. It is thought that NAC’s suggested benefits come from either of its two primary actions in the body. First, NAC is quickly metabolized to intracellular glutathione. Glutathione (GTH) and the enzyme complexes that it forms acts as reducing agents and antioxidants in the body. GTH also detoxifies chemicals into less harmful compounds. GTH is also known to support the normal transport of nutrients to lymphocytes and phagocytes, two major types of immune cells, and to promote the health of cell membranes. NAC is thought to be the best source method of boosting cellular GTH levels. NAC cleaves disulfide bonds by converting them to two sulfhydryl groups. Further, NAC has also been shown to support healthy platelet aggregation and supports healthy lipoprotein levels.
Several studies have confirmed that NAC is converted to glutathione in the body. Reviews of these studies show that oral NAC supplementation was successful in enhancing the levels of glutathione in the liver, in plasma and in the bronchioles of the lungs. NAC has also been shown to help reduce levels of fatigue and promote the ability for muscle contraction during exhaustive exercise (possibly due to reduced levels of oxidative stress).
The dandelion, the common stubborn plant of many a front lawn, is an unusually nutritious food. Its leaves contain substantial amounts of vitamin A as well as moderate amounts of vitamin D, vitamin C, various B vitamins, iron, silicon, magnesium, zinc and manganese. Dandelion takes its name from the French dent de lion, or lion's tooth - a reference to the toothed edges of its leaves. Dandelion root has been shown to support a healthy liver, kidney, gallbladder and joints.
Dandelion root is regarded as a "liver tonic," a substance believed to support the liver in an unspecified way. The bitter properties of dandelion help to support healthy bile production in the gallbladder and bile flow from the liver. These compounds are unique to the dandelion plant and were previously referred to as taraxacin. These constituents are sesquiterpene lactones of the eudesmanolide and germacranolide classification. The bitters from dandelion are recommended to support healthy liver function. The support of normal bile flow may also help support healthy fat (including cholesterol) metabolism in the body. Dandelion root is also used like other bitter herbs to help support a healthy appetite and support a healthy digestive system.
Garlic was used in China as early as A.D. 510. Louis Pasteur studied the antibacterial action of garlic in 1858. These days, it is largely used because it supports the cardiovascular system. Garlic experts agree that the herb does help maintain normal cholesterol levels. It may also help maintain normal triglyceride levels. Garlic also has some antioxidant properties.
Hawthorn Berry Extract
Hawthorn, or Crataegus oxyacantha, grows as a thorny shrub with white or pink flowers and berries that resemble miniature apples. This shrub is native to northern temperate climates in Asia, Europe and eastern North America. Hawthorn has been used in China for centuries for digestion. As early as the Renaissance, Europeans have used this supplement for digestive health; beginning in the late 1800s, doctors in Europe began to use hawthorn to promote a healthy heart. The main benefit of Hawthorn seems to be in heart health. Hawthorn contains a group of chemicals known as flavonoids, the main group of components in this plant, thought to work together to support the heart in several ways. First, hawthorn extract can support healthy vessels of the heart by promoting normal blood flow. Second, hawthorn helps maintain normal blood pressure. Lastly, as an antioxidant, hawthorn helps to maintain healthy collagen matrices of arterial walls so that the vessels maintain elasticity.
Schizandra Chinensis Fruit and Seed Extract
Schizandra, has an extensive history in ancient Chinese medicine as an herb promoting general well-being and vitality. Schizandra originates from the red berries that grow on a vine-like plant belonging to the magnolia family. Approximately 25 species of schizandra exist, and all are indigenous to Asia except for a rare form of the vine that grows in wooded areas in North Carolina and surrounding states. In addition to its traditional uses for increasing energy and helping decrease stress-induced fatigue, schizandra has traditionally been taken to support the sex organs, to promote mental function and to beautify the skin. It promotes liver and kidney health, enhances aerobic capacity and energy levels, promotes normal vision, and supports mental functioning.
Schizandra is part of the adaptogen family made up of compounds believed to promote balance in the body. Schizandra contain lignans, which are a concentrated component of the seeds of the schisandra berry that may support the immune system, promote liver health, and promote the body’s ability to cope with stress.
Yellow Dock Root
Yellow dock is related to the buckwheat family that is native to northern Europe and Asia, but its ability to adjust to various climates has allowed it to spread to many parts of the world. It is also known as curly dock, because of the shape of its leaves, or sour dock, due to its bitter taste. In ancient times, the Chinese and Romans used yellow dock as a digestive aid and for skin health. Today, it can be found in many forms, and still functions to promote skin and liver health, and as a mild laxative. Yellow dock helps support a healthy digestive system. It supports the appetite, and promotes normal bile flow and digestion. Like other popular herbal laxatives, yellow dock contains anthraquinone glycosides, contributing to the herb’s frequent usage as a laxative to support healthy bowel movements. The tannins in yellow dock also give it a digestive bitter quality that could support appetite and bile flow, which promote normal digestion.
Burdock is a well-respected, health-promoting herb. It was used to support healthy joints and a healthy digestive system. Burdock root also contains high amounts of inulin and mucilage. This may explain its soothing effects on the gastrointestinal tract. Also, burdock has been shown to support a healthy liver. Burdock is widely used to moisturize the skin.
Licorice root has long been used in both foods and health products. In Chinese medicine, licorice is an ingredient in nearly all herbal formulas. Among its most prominent uses are as a demulcent (soothing, coating agent) in the digestive and urinary tracts.
Barberry Bark and Root
Barberry has been used extensively throughout the world for its health properties. Berberine is isolated from the roots and bark of Berberis vulgaris. Berberine is a plant alkaloid with a long history of health-promoting use in both Ayurvedic and Chinese medicine. Berberine is a key constituent of the immune enhancing herb, goldenseal (Hydrastis canadensis). Berberine helps to support a healthy immune system. This compound also supports healthy bowel movements. Berbamine is another alkaloid found in barberry. It is an antioxidant. The bitter compounds present in barberry, including the alkaloids mentioned above, support normal digestion. Additionally, barberry has shown to support healthy liver and gallbladder functions.
Herbalists have long used rosemary as an energy booster for the elderly and to help with normal digestion. In China, it is used to promote head comfort. Rosemary has been used to support a healthy appetite, liver and gallbladder, and maintain normal blood pressure. Some less-than-conclusive evidence hints that rosemary, or its constituents, may have antioxidant effects.
Ginger is a shoot-like plant with a single purple-green flower that contains a thick root from which uses for this plant originate. It is native to coastal India, but it now grows and is harvested in Jamaica, China, Africa and the West Indies. The root is the source of ginger’s aroma and is also the source of the spice. Ginger has been used for years to support healthy gastrointestinal health and to support healthy bowel movements. Ginger also supports a healthy cardiovascular system.
Green Tea Leaf Extract
Green tea has been used for its health properties for centuries in India and China. A number of beneficial health effects are related to regular consumption of green tea, and dried/powdered extracts are available as a part of dietary supplements. Green tea is prepared by picking, lightly steaming and allowing the leaves to dry. The active components in green tea are a family of polyphenols (catechins) and flavonols which possess potent antioxidant activity. Tannins, large polyphenol molecules, form the bulk of the active compounds in green tea, with catechins comprising nearly 90 percent. Several catechins are present in major quantities: epicatechin (EC), epigallocatechin (EGC), epicatechin gallate (ECG), and epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG). EGCG makes up around 10-50 percent of the total catechin content, and appears to be the most powerful of all the catechins with antioxidant activity about 25-100 times more powerful than vitamins C and E. Green tea extract is reported to have positive effects, including cardiovascular system support via helping to maintain normal cholesterol levels and triglycerides levels. It is a potent immune enhancer and has been found to be a potent energy promoter. Recent studies have suggested that catechins may be important in promoting weight loss. In some studies, green tea is associated with promoting thermogenesis (caloric expenditure) – which is generally attributed to its caffeine content. At least one study has shown that green tea extract stimulates thermogenesis to an extent that is much greater than can be attributed to its caffeine content per se – meaning that the thermogenic properties of green tea may be due to an interaction between its high content of catechin-polyphenols, along with caffeine. A probable theory for the thermogenic effect of green tea is an increase in levels of norepinephrine because catechin-polyphenols are known to inhibit catechol-O-methyl-transferase (the enzyme that degrades norepinephrine).
Hyssop (aerial parts)
The herb hyssop also known as Hyssop officinalis has been used for ages in both religion and health care. A two-foot high, evergreen shrub with dark blue flowers, hyssop grows naturally throughout the Mediterranean region but is also cultivated elsewhere. Hyssop has been used to promote digestive health.
Red Clover Flower
Red clover is a member of the legume (bean) family — the same class of plants as chickpeas and soybeans. Red clover was and is considered one of the premier purifying herbs for the blood. Red clover extracts are used as dietary supplements for their high content of isoflavone compounds. These compounds have proven to be of some benefit for women going through menopause. A double-blind trial found that red clover supported a healthy cardiovascular system in menopausal women.It is claimed that red clover can balance moods, support healthy sleeping patterns, reduce hot flashes, support a normal libido, support heart health and promote the maintenance of bone mass, as well.
Turmeric Root Extract
Turmeric is part of the ginger family. Its stalk is used in both food and medicine, creating the common yellow ingredient that colors and adds flavor to curry. In traditional Indian Ayurveda, turmeric is thought to support general body strength, vision and normal milk secretion. Within dietary supplements, turmeric is found both alone, and in combination with products created to exert antioxidant activity and provide gastrointestinal support. The primary active compounds in turmeric are the flavonoid, curcumin and related “curcuminoid” compounds which deliver potent antioxidant properties.
Release (1160 mg) Proprietary Blend
Nutriclean’s Release tablets are a combination of special herbs and botanicals that provide a safe, easy, and effective means of maintaining a healthy digestive tract via regularity. They produce a laxative effect on the gastrointestinal system by promoting perstalsis, which are the natural contractions and movements initiated by the body’s digestive system. Release tablets work to cleanse the bowel gently, supporting the gastrointestinal tract’s ability to both absorb necessary vitamins and minerals, and eliminate toxins.*
Rhubarb is a remedy for occasional constipation. It works by helping to support healthy bowel movements. Rhubarb can also be utilized in cleansing the intestines as a part of the NutriClean detoxification system. Rhubarb contains compounds called anthraquinones, laxative substances similar to those found in senna or cascara. It actually has a very strong laxative effect as it promotes secretion of fluid into the bowel, causing strong muscular contractions of the bowel wall and speeding up bowel movements. It is thought that rhubarb may support both the kidney and liver.
Buckthorn is a tall shrub native to northern Europe. It is primarily used for supporting healthy bowel movements. Buckthorn has been used as a beneficial laxative in northern and central Europe, including England, for many years. Buckthorn bark and berries are high in anthraquinone glycosides. Anthraquinone glycosides, as found in rhubarb, have a cathartic action, promoting the large intestine’s muscular contraction or peristalsis, and then supporting water movement from the cells of the colon into the feces, resulting in soft bowel movement.It takes six to 10 hours for buckthorn to act after taking it by mouth.
Cascara Sagrada bark extract (20 percent hydroxyanthracene derivatives calculated as cascaroside A)
Cascara is quite powerful in supporting normal bowel movements. Indigenous to the Pacific Northwest, Cascara probably got the name sacred bark due to its ability to promote normal bowel movements. The bark is dried for one year before it is used in order to allow the potency to dampen a bit before human ingestion. Cascara promotes passage and a softer stool. This herb works to support normal bowel movements.
Gentian promotes a normal appetite. It is a perennial plant that grows to about four feet and produces yellow flowers. Its name derives from Gentius, King of Illyria (180-167 BC), who discovered the plant's health properties. It works by stimulating the taste buds, thus promoting saliva and digestive juices, which is attributed to gentian’s bitter properties.
Originally deriving from the Near East, the anise plant can now be found in southern Europe, Turkey, central Asia, India, China, Japan, and Central and South America. The ripe fruit and dried seeds provide the plant's healthful oil. Anise is used to support a normal appetite and gallbladder health.
Fennel first grew in the Mediterranean region and then spread to England, Germany and Argentina. Today, it also grows in Iran, Iraq and China. Fennel seed is used to promote normal digestion.
Black Walnut Bark
Black walnut promotes liver and gallbladder health. In homeopathic medicine, it's used to help promote head comfort and skin health. The main chemical compound, Juglone, serves as a gentle laxative.
Oregon Grape Root
Oregon grape root is a close relative to Barberry. It’s used to promote gall bladder health. In addition, it has been used as a bitter tonic to support a healthy appetite and digestive function. Isolated berberine has been shown to effectively support healthy bowel movements. Berberine promotes the health of the urinary tract.
Scutellaria Root extract
Scutellaria root may have beneficial antioxidant and sleep aid value. According to ancient Chinese medicine, scutellaria is used for supporting healthy blood pressure. Three bioactive flavonoids - baicalin, baicalein and wogonin - have been extracted from scutellaria and are thought to contribute to the major activities of the plant. All three flavonoids have exhibited potential support of the immune system.
Goldenseal (aerial parts)
Goldenseal is an herb with a wide variety of indications. It has been reported to promote normal digestion and urinary tract health.
The oil from the peppermint leaf can promote normal appetite, liver and gallbladder health, normal digestion and healthy bowel movements. Germany's Commission E indicates the use of oral peppermint oil for promoting normal digestion. Some preliminary evidence has shown that peppermint oil may in fact be effective for this purpose. The active ingredient of peppermint oil for this purpose is thought to be menthol. It relaxes the muscles of the small intestine. Peppermint has shown benefits for maintaining general gastrointestinal comfort.
NutriClean Advanced Fiber Powder
NutriClean Advanced Fiber Powder mixes easily with water and is composed of fibers, probiotics and gastrointestinal nutrients shown to help relieve occasional constipation. It comes in a delicious mixed berry flavor and mixes easily with water. NutriClean Fiber Powder relieves occasional constipation†, thereby balancing the activity of the bowel. The bowel is the major point of excretion from the digestive system and a major determinant in overall digestive system health. This blend of fibers and probiotics team up to deliver optimum cleansing by purifying the colon as it balances the bowel, and promotes a healthy immune system. NutriClean Advanced Fiber Powder delivers top quality soluble fiber, with beneficial probiotics, which promotes the growth of good bacteria in the colon, keeping things in balance in terms of microorganisms. Verified by our in-house scientists, NutriClean Advanced Fiber powder contains one of the most advantageous mixtures of L-glutamine, inulin, Fibersol-2 and probiotics. Advanced Fiber Powder’s probiotic blend supplies 1.5 billion healthful microorganisms.
Fibersol-2® (soluble fiber flucose polymer complex)
Fibersol-2 is a soluble fiber having a positive impact on the elimination of wastes and colon cleansing, as well as helping to maintain balanced bowels, helping support normal bowel regularity and fecal volume, and supporting healthy digestive function. Fibersol-2 is a spray-dried powder made by the pyrolysis and stabilized enzymatic hydrolysis of cornstarch. It is a safe (GRAS) maltodextrin, easily mixed in water and carries no flavor. Fibersol-2 has a very low viscosity, high solubility, low hygroscopicity and clarity in solution. Because it is high in naturally-occurring chemical bonds that remain undigested even in the digestive tract, it helps to support overall health by helping to maintain normal cholesterol levels, helping to maintain normal blood glucose levels and promoting immune health.
A general review article by Kazuhiro Ohkuma and Shigeru Wakabayashi (Advanced Dietary Fibre Technology, 2000) covered the beneficial properties of Fibersol-2. "Its viscosity is lower than that of a conventional maltodextrin, although both have the same DE value," they noted. "A solution of Fibersol-2 is very clear and stable and does not become cloudy or show signs of any precipitation when kept for long periods of time. It also has very good anti-acid properties, and can be cooked and sterilized at high temperature in food applications due to its stability in heat processes." Many studies on Fibersol-2 have looked at its health benefits. Physiologically, the ingredient has been shown to promote normal bowel regularity and stool volume.
Fibersol-2 is capable of increasing the amount of good bacteria, probiotics, within the large intestine due to the fact that most of this fiber is transported to that specific area of the colon. In a normal absorption pattern of a sugar and starch mixture, the majority is absorbed in the stomach and in the beginning of the small intestine. Ohkuma and Wakabayashi hypothesized that most of Fibersol-2 escapes digestion in the upper gastrointestinal tract. "It is estimated that approximately 90 percent of the administered Fibersol-2 reaches the large intestine and half of that is metabolized by intestinal bacteria," they noted.
Fibersol-2’s slow digestion helps maintain blood glucose levels. In one study, changes in postprandial blood glucose levels were monitored in 40 healthy humans. The subjects were given a fixed menu of Japanese udon noodles with fried bean curd and rice, with either green tea or a beverage containing 5.0 g of Fibersol-2. Postprandial blood glucose levels for subjects receiving green tea and Fibersol-2 remained low, compared to subjects ingesting only green tea, despite the subjects eating the same food. (Tokunaga K and Matsuoka A, "Effects of a [FOSHU] which contains indigestible dextrin as an effective ingredient on glucose and lipid metabolism," J Japanese Diabetes Society, 42:61-65, 1999.) Animal models have taken this finding further to determine how it could promote weight loss.
Inulin Fiber (fructo-oligosaccharide extract of chicory root)
Inulin fiber delivers prebiotic, which is a subset fiber. These types of prebiotic fibers are food sources that are preferred by friendly bacteria. Inulin, an important prebiotic, exists in foods such as asparagus, chicory, garlic, Jerusalem artichoke and onion. Inulin or fructo-oligosaccharides (FOS) are fibers in the form of starches that the human body cannot fully digest. When a person consumes prebiotics, the undigested portions provide nourishment for beneficial bacteria in the digestive tract. Inulins may promote the growth of favorable bacterial populations, such as bifidobacteria in the colon. Bifidobacteria may inhibit the growth of pathogenic bacteria, such as Clostridium perfringens and diarrheogenic strains of Escherichia coli.
Probiotic Blend (Lactobacillus acidophilus, Lactobacillus plantarum, Bifodobacterium bifidum, Lactobacillus casei)
Probiotics, such as acidophilus or lactobacillus acidophilus, are strains of "beneficial" or "good" bacteria, known to help to maintain a healthy digestive tract. The digestive system naturally houses trillions of these good bacteria that directly help the body digest, modify and convert the foods we eat. Disruptions to these populations of probiotics (good bacteria) are common and must be kept at adequate levels in order to overwhelm other bacteria, which may begin to run rampant in the event the good bacteria levels decrease. In displacing other bacteria and yeast, acidophilus (and other beneficial bacteria like plantarun, bifidum and casei) may also play a significant role in maintaining a healthy immune system, and promoting a healthy colon. Such beneficial bacteria can be found naturally in foods, such as cultured yogurts and kefir.
Both human and animal studies have demonstrated direct benefits of consistent ingestion of acidophilus and other beneficial bacteria on immune system function. Overall, the probiotic bacteria support the ability of the immune system to recognize and destroy invading organisms. Several key fighters of the immune system, including macrophages, immunoglobulins cytokines, are benefited by regular intake of beneficial bacteria. Consuming beneficial bacteria helps maintain healthy white blood cell counts.
L-glutamine (1,000 mg)
High-protein foods, including meat, fish, beans and dairy products are excellent sources of glutamine. L-glutamine is an amino acid derived from another amino acid, glutamic acid. Glutamine is a restorative amino acid that is used by the GI tract as its source of fuel. Glutamine helps to support overall health by helping to maintain normal cholesterol levels, helping to maintain normal blood glucose levels and promoting immune health. Heavy exercise, infection, surgery and trauma can all deplete the body's glutamine reserves, particularly in muscle cells. Because the cells of the intestine use glutamine for fuel, supplemental L-glutamine has been used to promote digestive health.

Why is maintaining colon health so important?
Few people notice their digestive system until there is an apparent problem, such as gas, indigestion, irregularity or diarrhea. But these common occurrences could also constitute symptomatic markers of much larger problems that place the spotlight on proper colon health and digestive system maintenance. It is well accepted that the average American diet tends to be quite high in both fat and calories. Modern lifestyles are not conducive to good colon health. Over a period of time, a diet lacking in certain nutrients and fiber can cause undigested food to slow down its transit time in the colon. Also, toxins and bacteria from this leftover residue can lead to occasional constipation. Such consequences certainly make the case for paying attention to the maintenance of sound colon health and a viable reason to cleanse the colon.
What Makes NutriClean Advanced Fiber Powder different from something I can find in a local store?
NutriClean is revolutionary in the way of colon health. While most fibers in grocery stores or pharmacies may help to promote a laxative effect, they are still leaving out key ingredients. Market America’s NutriClean fiber goes several steps further to ensure gut and bowel are kept in optimal working condition. Unlike common fibers which supply only simple laxative fibers, NutriClean Fiber contains the nutrient L-Glutamine which fuels the digestive system. Next, only the highest potency, most well-researched and cutting edge fibers are used in our special formula, including the dynamic inulin fiber and Fibersol-2. Our fiber blend contains 1.5 billion probiotic microorganisms, which help maintain the balance of gut flora which is integral for overall body health.*
Why is fiber so important to overall health?
Unfortunately, the average American doesn’t get nearly enough fiber in their daily diet. This is definitely unfortunate because fiber should be among one of the most important components of your diet, yet this overlooked nutrient is often forgotten. Fiber benefits include the ability to help maintain healthy levels of cholesterol, triglycerides, glucose, intestinal regularity and healthy intestinal microflora (food for good bacteria).
What is Fibersol-2?
Fibersol-2 is a newly innovated, dynamic type of fiber on the market. It is a unique soluble fiber from a readily available source — corn. It isn’t absorbed into the blood stream, which means that it remains intact, ready for action in the lower portion of the digestive tract, the colon. It offers all of the benefits of fiber previously listed. It has been scientifically studied and can support the regularity of the average American who consumes a typical diet which is often laden with processed foods of little to no nutritional value.
What exactly are probiotics?
Probiotics are a type of healthy bacteria. The use of probiotics has been found to be helpful for the immune system, helping to maintain normal cholesterol levels and maintaining an optimally functioning digestive system. For centuries, cultures all over the world (Georgia, Azerbaijan, Ecuador, Himalayas) have used a variety of healthy microflora (probiotics) to sustain a healthy body. Probiotics need to be given in high amounts with over one billion per serving to be effective. They should also be consumed regularly. NutriClean’s Fiber includes 1.5 billion CFUs per serving, including lactobacillus acidophilus, lactobacillus plantarum, lactobacillus casei and bifidobacteria bifidum.
How do I take NutriClean Fiber?
At bedtime, mix one rounded scoop of NutriClean Fiber Powder in an 8-fluid ounce glass of cold water, stir or shake briskly and drink immediately. Drink plenty of fluids while using this product. With one daily scoop of Market America’s NutriClean Fiber Powder, you receive 10 needed grams of fiber to supplement what you are not able to ingest from food.
Why is the liver so important?
The liver is one of the most important organs in the body. It is the way the body eliminates many unnatural, detrimental substances that enter the body on a consistent basis. Maintaining optimal liver health is a must in modern times, where free radicals, toxins and harmful chemicals bombard the body daily. The liver’s function is to sort out and eliminate all of these harmful substances, removing them from the body. Internally, the liver must break down compounds, such as excess hormones and other byproducts of a healthy metabolism. Externally, the liver must filter and eliminate foods, food preservatives and added chemicals, pollutants, toxins and excessive alcohol. Lifestyle factors that we may or may not be able to control, such as genetics, diet, environment and stress can influence the functioning of the liver.
I don’t drink a lot of alcohol. Do I need to take NutriClean HepatoCleanse?
No one is excluded from the harmful chemicals, pollutants and hidden preservatives found in everyday life that can wreak havoc on an otherwise healthy liver. The liver is a precious organ and deserves the best treatment in the way of maintenance. The herbs found in HepatoCleanse support the liver in its efforts to cleanse the blood, and filter out substances that can have an impact on all body systems and organs.
How does NutriClean HepatoCleanse support normal liver detoxification?
HepatoCleanse contains herbs and botanicals that promote the liver’s normal detoxification of toxins. The function of the liver is to eliminate a variety of substances from the body. Toxins enter the body and are then transformed by enzymes into molecules that can be eliminated from the body via the digestive tract. These enzymes that help in breaking down and eliminating harmful toxins are primarily activated through ingesting certain things through the diet or through supplementation. NutriClean contains milk thistle seed, which contains silymarin that works to promote liver health through its free radical scavenging ability and its ability to support normal liver cell regeneration. Alongside milk thistle, N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine protects the liver from free radicals and when incorporated into the tri-peptide glutathione, acts as a powerful antioxidant and conjugating agent for eliminating toxins. The herb schizandra cleanses and detoxifies the liver. It supports the body’s ability to make glutathione and helps promotes the health of the liver. Garlic, rosemary, ginger, berries and green tea are included in the HepatoCleanse formula, also helping to cleanse and detoxify the liver. The powerful blend of herbs and botanicals in HepatoCleanse goes a long way in supporting liver health, promoting the cleansing and purifying of toxins out of the body, and supporting optimal liver functioning.
How do I take NutriClean HepatoCleanse?
One should take two capsules a day with a full 8 oz. glass of water.
What is glutathione and how does it support the health of the liver?
The herbs found in HepatoCleanse help support the body’s natural ability to generate glutathione. Glutathione supports the enzymatic reactions that promote the proper filtration and elimination of bodily toxins. Glutathione is also known as a Phase II enzyme in that it bonds with separate Phase I enzymes in making the filtered products more soluble for elimination through the bile or the kidneys.
What is the significance of the digestive tract?
The digestive tract is of utmost importance, although many of us fail to notice this fact. The main function of the digestive system is, of course, to process and eliminate food and food by-products. It is an active organ that is also involved in immunity, acting as a barrier between you and the outside world with 60 percent of the lympathic system interwoven into the intestines. It is the home for healthy flora that helps to maintain proper balance. The digestive system actively transports nutrients into the body and helps to maintain the water/electrolyte balance. It serves to aid in the elimination of wastes through daily bowel movements, urination, perspiration and the breath. The consequence of second-rate digestive functioning may actually result in separate health concerns that may seemingly have nothing to do with the digestive system itself, yet flow from the system’s large involvement in a plethora of other processes. Various health issues can stem back to poor digestive health. One huge health concern related to digestive system health is constipation. Sixteen percent of all Americans experience occasional constipation. More women are affected in a ratio or 2 to 1. Elderly Americans experience over twice the rate and poor diet, poor hydration and lack of exercise all contribute to suboptimal bowel performance. With a prudent cleansing with NutriClean, one can be sure they are doing the most for their digestive system health - crucial in overall good health.
How do I use NutriClean?
You need to be sure that you are able to fully commit to the system for seven consecutive days. In the mornings, two hours after your first meal of the day, take two Release tablets (from the blister pack.) Also, drink eight fluid ounces of the NutriClean Advanced Fiber Powder Drink Mix (mixing as directed). Throughout the day, be sure to drink plenty of water and other fluids (a minimum of 32 ounces, optimally 64 ounces per day). At bedtime, take the entire contents of one daily packet, which includes two Release tablets and two HepatoCleanse capsules. You repeat this cycle for seven consecutive days, taking the tablets/fiber/capsules at the same time each day.
What can I expect from the NutriClean Seven-Day Cleansing System?
Everyone’s body will react slightly differently to the NutriClean System. Results (changes in bowel movements) should occur within 24-48 hours. If you are satisified, then continue on as directed. If you begin experiencing significant diarrhea, discontinue the two Release tablets in the morning but continue taking the NutriClean fiber powder in the morning and Daily Packets at night.
Should I do anything special for my NutriClean Seven-Day cleanse?
To enhance the effects of the NutriClean seven-day cleanse, you should INCREASE your intake of fruits, vegetables and whole grains. Eat more natural foods and increase your exercise. You should LIMIT caffeinated beverages to one serving or cup of coffee per day. Cleansing tends to boost energy levels. Reduce your protein intake. Protein contains ammonia, which must be filtered by the liver. Limit your intake of eggs and meats (especially red meats) to decrease strain on the liver. Refined sugars should be avoided, including cookies, crackers and other foods in a bag or box to decrease stimulation of insulin secretion during the cleanse. Also, stay away from artificial sweeteners and MSG, a common additive, and any other ingredients that do not occur naturally in foods to avoid additional stress on the liver. You must eliminate the following things from your lifestyle during the seven-day cleanse:
- Processed foods — such as luncheon meats, boxed meals, white bread and cheese foods
- Smoking — cigarettes contain thousands of toxic chemicals. Please refrain from smoking if at all possible.
- Soft Drinks — phosphoric acid can upset the pH balance in your body in addition to pulling much needed calcium from the bones when consumed in large quantities. Soft drinks can also be high in sugar.
- Hydrogenated oils — foods are hydrogenated to increase their stability and storage time, but this process increases the saturation of the fats in these foods. Margarines, spreads, cooking fats and commercially baked foods contain hydrogenated fats (or trans fats), which can increase cardiovascular risk.
I now have diarrhea. What should I do?
Everyone reacts to the ingredients in NutriClean slightly differently. You may experience diarrhea if the balance of the Fiber Powder, Release and water are not right for you. To relieve diarrhea, add an additional serving of Fiber Powder to your daily routine and stop taking the two Release tablets in the morning. If this does not relieve the diarrhea within 48 hours, discontinue use of this product and consult a physician.
I haven’t had a bowel movement in 48 hours. Am I doing something wrong?
Constipation may also occur if the balance of Fiber Powder, Release tablets and water is not right for you.

If the constipation persists, discontinue use of this product.
