Ultimate Hangover Cure – Love Your Liver! PH 2

For The Second Part of Our Ultimate Hangover cure we cover:

Phase Two Detoxification Pathway…

As mentioned in my last post:, the liver works through two phases: Phase 1 & Phase 2.

This is How to Support Phase 2:

In phase two the liver now attaches these broken down intermediate metabolites (say that 3 times fast), such as Acetylhyde, to other molecules to be carried out of the body. This is called Conjugation and makes the toxins water – soluble so they can be carried out of the body.

The liver needs protein for this phase, which is why I don’t recommend juice only cleanses (that’s another blog). This makes the toxin or drug water-soluble, so it can then be excreted from the body via watery fluids such as bile or urine.

An important part of this phase 2 pathway is called Sulfation and the liver needs Sulphur containing amino acids & anti-oxidants to complete this cycle. Just a few of these are:

1. MSM (methylsulfonymethane) a natural sulfur found in soil and all living humans. It is most known for joint inflammation and is a powerful additive to your diet. For more info:

2. NAC (N-Acetyl-Cysteine),is so powerful, it is mostly known for heavy metal detoxification.

3. Glycine, Choline & Inositol, plus many other co-factors.

4. Methylated B vitamins. 40% of us do not break down our B vitamins so we need to take them pre-methylated (broken down) for the body to use them.

These all work together to create the ultimate detoxifier: Glutathione
There are opinions out there that Glutathione can not be taken, (because it is so unstable) it must be made in the liver with these ingredients.

Personally, I have found that taking a Liposomal Glutathione plus MSM & Glutamine Powders and Methylated B’s are what I need for this important and multi-faceted detox phase.

Cheers & To Your Health!
