A Complete Guide to Liver Complex Methylation Support Supplement

Posted by Karalynne Call on

Welcome to the gateway of vitality and well-being - your liver. Nestled beneath your ribcage, this unsung hero is not just a filter for toxins, but a metabolic marvel - orchestrating a symphony of detoxification, metabolism, and nutrient storage. But, in today’s world, inundated with pollutants, processed foods, and stress, our livers bear the brunt of the burden. 

And why does it matter? Burdening our livers makes it harder and harder for them to accomplish their necessary tasks. Because of that, we need extra help. That’s where our Liver Complex Supplement with Methylation Support comes in.

In this article we’ll go over methylation and its role in your health, what a liver complex supplement is, its benefits, ingredients used, who should use it, and how to use it.

Let’s get started!

Understanding Methylation and Its Role in Liver Health

Methylation is a process crucial for different body functions, like detoxification, turning genes on and off, getting rid of arsenic and mercury, breaking down histamine, dopamine, and epinephrine, and supporting a developing baby.

In the liver, methylation plays a significant role in processing toxins, hormones, and neurotransmitters. However, this process can become compromised due to factors like stress, poor diet, and environmental toxins.

Because of these toxins bogging down our livers, we may not be able to detox as effectively as we need to. Changing our diets, swapping out questionable beauty and home products, and supplementing with Just Ingredients’ Liver Complex Supplement can help.

What are Methylated Vitamins?

Our liver complex includes methylated B vitamins - vitamins that are essential to brain function, cell metabolism, and energy levels. Methylated vitamins are in their active form, which means they can be directly and immediately used by the body.

If you struggle with:

  • Insulin resistance
  • Pre-diabetes
  • Stubborn weight gain
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Insomnia
  • Low energy

Methylated B vitamins can help. 

Introducing the Liver Complex Supplement

The Liver Complex Supplement is formulated with herbs, vitamins, and minerals that help the body detox, specifically the liver. It can also help lower histamine levels, balance hormone levels, and protect against inflammation, which provides support for your overall well-being.

Benefits of Liver Complex Supplements with Methylation Support

1. Help With Detoxification

This supplement aids the liver in processing and eliminating toxins effectively. The Liver Complex Supplement helps with Phase 1 and 2 of the detoxification process:

  • Phase 1 Detoxification: This is the first line of defense against toxins. It contains a group of enzymes that neutralize different substances. In this phase, the liver will change a toxic substance to a less toxic one.
  • Phase 2 Detoxification: Phase 2 makes it so that toxins from Phase 1 aren’t able to build-up. In this phase, byproducts of Phase 1 detoxification are neutralized, as well as other remaining toxins. Here, toxins become water-soluble so that they can be excreted from the body.

2. Help Balance Hormone Levels

Methylation is involved in hormone metabolism, contributing to hormonal balance within the body. 

Detoxification also helps with balancing hormones. For example, estrogen is one of the substances that is removed from the body during detoxification. 

If our livers aren't functioning correctly, they may struggle to effectively break down estrogen and eliminate it from the body as needed. This can result in estrogen dominance.

Estrogen dominance can look like:

  • Mood swings
  • Irritability
  • Decreased sex drive
  • Worsening PMS symptoms
  • Irregular menstrual periods
  • Heavy periods
  • Bloating
  • Weight gain
  • Anxiety
  • Hair loss
  • Trouble sleeping
  • Fatigue
  • Fertility issues
  • Memory problems and mental fog
  • Hot flashes and night sweats

3. Help Protect Against Inflammation

Homocysteine is an amino acid, that can become harmful when its levels are elevated in the body. Elevated homocysteine is associated with inflammation and cardiovascular risks. Methylated B vitamins aid in the conversion of homocysteine into vital molecules for cellular function, which can help prevent homocysteine from becoming elevated.

Plus, the herbs used in our supplement possess anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, which help reduce liver inflammation and oxidative stress. 

4. Help Lower Histamine Levels

Histamine regulates many bodily functions and plays a key role in your body’s inflammatory response. 

Histamine intolerance happens when you have a high amount of histamine in your body, and can cause:

  • Bloating
  • Diarrhea
  • Low blood pressure
  • Flushing
  • Shortness of breath
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Headaches or migraines
  • Runny or stuffy nose
  • Seasonal allergies

The Liver Complex can help break down histamine levels by the process of methylation.

5. Help Promote Clear Skin

One of the liver’s roles is to process toxins and bacteria that can wreak havoc within your body. When those toxins build up, they can cause redness, irritation, inflammation, and acne. 

So, if you are struggling with breakouts or having other skin issues, your liver may be the culprit. Liver detoxification with our Liver Support Complex can help promote healthy, clear skin.

Key Ingredients and Their Benefits

  • N-acetyl-cysteine (NAC): NAC (a precursor to glutathione, a that acts as an antioxidant and plays a crucial role in liver detoxification) and L-methionine work synergistically to replenish glutathione levels, the body's master antioxidant and an antioxidant essential for detoxification and reducing oxidative stress. This potent combination not only supports liver health, but also bolsters the body's defense against toxins and environmental pollutants.
  • Milk Thistle and Dandelion Root: May help enhance the liver's function by stimulating bile production and flow. It can also help promote the regeneration of liver cells, and aid in the elimination of toxins
  • Methyl B Vitamins: Can help enhance the liver’s ability to detoxify and are crucial in the methylation process.
  • Betaine Anhydrous: Betaine anhydrous, also known as trimethylglycine (TMG), provides methyl groups necessary for the conversion of homocysteine to methionine, a precursor to S-adenosylmethionine (SAMe). SAMe is critical for numerous methylation reactions involved in liver detoxification and gene expression. It can also aid in fat metabolism and supports healthy cholesterol levels.

Who Should Take a Liver Complex Supplement?

Anyone can benefit from a liver complex supplement, but this has been especially formulated for those with methylation issues. Around 40% of Americans have an MTHFR gene variant, which is linked to problems with methylation and detoxing. 

MTHFR is one gene in the human body. Its job is to make the number one form of folate in the human body, called methylfolate. 

Methylfolate should consist of over 80% of the circulating folate in your blood, but many of us have too much folic acid (a synthetic) in our bodies and not enough methylfolate. If you have an MTHFR gene variant or a methylation issue, your body may struggle to convert folic acid into the useable form methylfolate. 

For more information on MTHFR and methylation, listen to episode 145 of the Just Ingredients Podcast.

Potential Risks and Side Effects

While the Liver Complex Supplement is safe for most people, it's always best to consult with your healthcare provider before starting a new regimen, especially if you have underlying health conditions, are taking other medications, or are pregnant or breastfeeding.

Takeaway

Just Ingredients Liver support supplement with methylation support offers a comprehensive approach to nurturing liver health. It can help with detoxification, balanced hormones, lower histamine levels, and protection against inflammation

By understanding the role of methylation and choosing supplements wisely, you can support your liver's vital functions and promote overall well-being.
