Phyllanthus amarus (Detox 1)
Supportive studies on liver protective features of the plant were carried by independent researchers; Kumaran and Karunakaran (2007) detected antioxidant activities of Phyllanthus amarus ; Jeena and Kuttan (1999), Kumar and Kuttan (2005) and Naaz et al (2007) examined liver protective potential of Phyllanthus amarus in laboratory animals. The efficacy of Phyllanthus amarus was tested by liver injury markers including morphology of liver tissue and levels of enzymes. Independent studies showed the same results; Phyllanthus amarus showed a capacity to protect the liver.
Triphala (Detox 1)
Amla, Emblica officinalis
Studies conducted by Rafatullah (2002), Suryanaraya et al (2004), Rao et al (2005) and Yokozawa (2007) demonstrated Amla’s healing efficacy in cases of stomach ulcer and carcinogen-induced liver ailments.

Terminalia chebula (Harada)
TC extract administration in liver toxicity that are triggered by antibiotics for tuberculosis treatment prevented biochemical and histological alterations. The study was carried out by Tasdug et al in Division of Pharmacology and Natural Products Chemistry, Regional Research Laboratory, India (2006).
Citrus Bioflavonoid Research (GenKi)
Hesperidin, a citrus bioflavonoid, inhibits bone loss and decreases serum and hepatic lipids in ovariectomized mice. J Nutr. 2003.
The purpose of this study was to examine whether hesperidin inhibits bone loss in ovariectomized mice (OVX), an animal model of postmenopausal osteoporosis. Hesperidin administration did not affect the uterine weight. These results suggest a possible role for citrus bioflavonoids in the prevention of lifestyle-related diseases because of their beneficial effects on bone and lipids.
