Thorne Research MediClear Benefits
Our external environment has become increasingly more polluted in the last 50 years, causing a greater cumulative toxic burden in humans than ever before. Unavoidable exposure to thousands of toxic chemicals in the environment has delivered up the daunting task of detoxifying and eliminating these substances from our bodies. Added to this are the many internally produced substances (hormones, biochemical metabolites) the body must detoxify on a daily basis. The result is a serious challenge to our organs of elimination, particularly the liver. In addition to this ever-increasing toxic load, the over-consumption of fats and sugars &ndash and our reliance on nutrient-depleted vegetables, grains, fruits, and antibiotic- and hormone-laden meats &ndash adds to the toxic load while providing inadequate nutrients for many metabolic processes, especially detoxification.
The liver carries the greatest share of the detoxification burden, as it is the liver’s job to change potentially harmful substances into non-toxic, water-soluble compounds that can be eliminated by the kidneys or intestines. The liver and other tissues participating in the detoxification process must have available the proper nutrient cofactors to efficiently accomplish this task.* In addition, specific botanicals are useful in assisting detoxification by the liver.*
What is Phase I/Phase II Liver Detoxification?
In phase I of liver detoxification, fat-soluble substances are converted to intermediate metabolites mainly by a group of enzymes called cytochrome p450 enzymes. The intermediate molecules are often more reactive and potentially more toxic than the original substance. Phase II detoxification involves the attachment of other molecules onto these intermediate metabolites to make them non-toxic and water-soluble and allow their elimination via the urine or intestines.
MediClear Provides Liver Support*
Providing essential nutrient cofactors, while supplying an adequate amount of low-allergenicity protein, can be very beneficial to liver function.* Health-care practitioners know that many challenges to health can arise when a patient’s liver is not functioning as it should, including poor digestion, imbalances in intestinal bacteria, and fatigue. MediClear includes beneficial detoxification nutrient cofactors,* as well as an array of extra nutrients and botanicals in powder form that can be added to water, or fruit or vegetable juice, resulting in a pleasant-tasting beverage.
Why Rice and Pea Protein?
Rice and pea protein are used in MediClear because of their low incidence of allergenicity. It is far more likely for dairy or soy protein to initiate an allergic reaction. Using rice and pea proteins allows you to eliminate most allergenic proteins from the diet, yet maintain high-quality protein intake.
MediClear contains vitamins and minerals necessary for detoxification and liver support.* These nutrients are provided in the most absorbable, best utilized forms, such as calcium and magnesium citrate-malate, pyridoxal 5′-phosphate (active vitamin B6), folinic acid and L-5-MTHF (active forms of folate), methyl- and adenosylcobalamin (active forms of B12), and UltraChrome (Thorne’s patented chromium).*
MediClear is different than most similar beverage mixes. MediClear contains more protein, fewer carbohydrates, more accessory detox cofactors, special nutrients, and a probiotic for gut health – and it’s more affordable than other detox formulas.*
