Anti-Alcohol Antioxidants with HepatoProtection Complex
100 capsules
Item Catalog Number: 01440

Consuming alcoholic beverages results in the generation of free radicals. People who drink a lot of alcohol often suffer because of massive free radical-induced cellular damage. Alcohol-induced free radical assault can wreak short-term havoc throughout the body, and these same damaging free radicals are associated with accelerated aging.

Reactive oxygen species (ROS) have been associated with acute ethanol-induced liver damage. A study published in the journal Artery confirmed a specific toxic metabolite of alcohol (acetaldehyde) and identified an antidote (N-acetyl-L-cysteine): “All known pathways of ethanol metabolism result in the production of acetaldehyde, a highly reactive compound. N-acetyl-L-cysteine (NAC), an analogue of the dietary amino acid cysteine, binds acetaldehyde, thus blocking its damaging effect on physiological proteins.”82 NAC is a glutathione precursor and direct antioxidant. Co-administration of NAC helps to inhibit acute ethanol-induced liver damage via counteracting ethanol-induced oxidative stress.83,84 NAC also attenuates the progression of the abnormal retention of lipids within liver cells by decreasing development of oxidative stress and subsequent increases in TNF-alpha.

Thus, when people are exposed to a known substance such as alcohol, it makes perfect sense to take a proven antidote — namely, antioxidants.

Anti-Alcohol Antioxidants with HepatoProtection Complex is an improved formula containing additional antioxidants designed to suppress free radicals, neutralize toxic alcohol metabolites such as acetaldehyde,85-88 and support healthy liver function. In addition to vitamin B1, vitamin C, N-acetyl-L-cysteine and benfotiamine, this formula’s HepatoProtection Complex provides therapeutic doses of these novel antioxidants:

  • Chlorophyllin — an agent that protects the body from oxidative stress89-91
  • Leucoselect® grapeseed extract, silymarin (from milk thistle), and trans-resveratrol  —  three hepatoprotective agents that aid in reducing compounds from potentially harmful xenobiotics and protecting cells from free radical-induced oxidative stress92-94
  • Picroliv® Picrorhiza kurroa root extract — contains antioxidant kutkin that scavenges alcohol-induced excess free radicals and stimulates regeneration of cells (hepatocytes)95,96

Taking the proper supplements before and after drinking can substantially protect liver cells from the free-radical damaging effects of alcohol consumption.

          As a health and wellness professional, I do not drink heavily or with regularity, and I recognize the impacts that even daily drinking -- which some advocate for health reasons -- can have on the body. When I *do* indulge, I always take this supplement, in which I feel very confident, given the research behind it. I really appreciate the protective boost it gives me, paticularly when I'm out with friends for a drink.

            I know this product works because the results are immediate. There is a huge difference in how you feel the morning after a few drinks- with this product you won't feel foggy or slow. Of course, you still need to drink water, and not go overboard imbibimg. But you can go to a party and still feel good enough to hit the gym early the next morning.

              Comments about Life Extension Anti-Alcohol Antioxidants with HepatoProtection Complex, 100 capsules:

              i am amazed that Life Extension offers us such helpful & healthy solutions to help us live longer & healthier. I have been using this product for about 4 months. I simply take a pill before I drink alcoholic beverages. Sometimes I take it after if I don't have one handy. I keep them in my purse. It makes me feel better knowing that I can choose an alternative method to save from the harmful affects of alcohol.
              I will continue to use this product as long as I drink responsibly. Thank you, Life Extension for yet another beneficial product that I can put in my arsenal for a healthier choice. I would recommend this product to anyone who wants the same.

                          This is a well-conceived supplement. When I take alcohol, I usually like to take NAC and vitamin C, and sometimes milk thistle and lecithin, as well as borrow a Life Extension Mix tablet from the next day's allotment just for a little thiamin. But before this my choices were limited to multiples of 600 mg NAC, as well as multiples of the others. If for example I had a drink at eight o'clock and another at twelve and wanted to take some with each, it would mean 1200 mg NAC etceteras, overkill for the amount of alcohol involved. This formula makes it easy to calibrate the amounts and timing of what is taken to what is warranted and keep them in the desired proportion, greatly simplifying the whole exercise.
