Detoxify the Major Body Systems. The kidneys and the liver are the major glands responsible for detoxification. Eventually everything that has passed through the blood and other lymphatic tissues will travel through one or both of these glands. When functioning properly, they allow our body to eliminate impurities from the system, allowing for better utilization and production of hormones and body chemicals, improved energy levels and resistance and recovery from inflections and disease.
Liver and Kidneys, 24 Hour Protection. The liver is possibly the most important organ in detoxification. All the blood in the body passes through the liver, which removes toxins, impurities and debris from the bloodstream. The liver also uses enzymes to transform these substances into water-soluble material that can then be excreted through the gastrointestinal tract or kidneys. The kidneys are sophisticated trash collectors. Every day, your kidneys process about 200 quarts of blood to sift out about 2 quarts of waste products and extra water. This filtering occurs within tiny units called nephrons. In the nephron, capillaries intertwine with urine-carrying tubes called tubules. At first the tubules receive a combination of waste materials and chemicals that your body can still use. Your kidneys measure out these chemicals and can release them back into the blood, thus regulating these substances.
Vinco’s Phase II Detox The ingredients found in Vinco’s Filter and Flush have been shown to be beneficial in helping to detoxify the liver and kidneys. It provides contemporary ingredients at full therapeutic doses, giving you a fresh approach for full system support.
Milk Thistle (Silybum marianum) The activity of Milk Thistle is reported to be derived from Silymarin, composed of three primary flavonoids (silybin, silydianin and silychristin). Silymarin reportedly alters the composition of hepatocytes, llimiting entry of hepatotoxins, and stimulates protein synthesis as well as hepatic regeneration. Silymarin increases hepatic glutathione by over 35% (glutathione is an important antioxidant in detoxification reactions. Milk thistle is also reported to inhibit inflammatory effects of leukotrienes which could contribute to hepatic damage. Antioxidant, liver diseases, hepatoprotective, stimulation of bile secretion.
Schisandra (Schizandra chinensis) Schisandra has demonstrated stimulation of hepatic glycogen synthesis, protein synthesis and to increase microsomal enzyme activity. Schisandra has been reported to prevent liver damage, stimulate liver repair and stimulate normal liver function. It is also an adaptogen, increasing the body’s ability to adapt to stresses from chemical, environmental, physical and psychological sources. Adaptogen, hepatic protection and detoxification, increase endurance, stamina and work performance.
Uva Ursi (Arctostaphylos uvi-ursi) Uva Ursi contains arbutin, a phenolic glycoside that reportedly demonstrates antiseptic and analgesic properties in the urinary tract. The disinfectant properties may be most prominent in alkaline urine. It may be useful in a variety of renal disorders including nephritis, nephrolithiasis and cystitis. Urinary tract infections and kidney stone prevention.
Bupleurum (Bupleurum falcatum) Bupleurum has been used in traditional Chinese medicine as a bitter and cooling agent that is useful in decreasing inflammation. It has anti-inflammatory and diaphoretic properties.

N-Acetyl-Cysteine (NAC) NAC is a nontoxic derivative of the dietary amino acid L-Cysteine. It is a dietary precursor to reduced glutathione (GSH). As such, it helps to increase the body’s stores of glutathione. NAC is a sulfhydryl (-SH) substance that functions as a powerful antioxidant and cellular detoxifying agent, making it a major protector of biological structures and functions. NAC is capable of detoxifying heavy metals such as mercury, cadmium and lead. In addition to its antioxidant activities, NAC also functions as an antiviral. Acetaminophen toxicity, fatigue, heavy metal detoxification, glutathione production, asthma.
