A patented version of D-Glucarate acid that promotes holistic well-being by enhancing detoxification, liver health, cholesterol balance, inflammation control, and reduction of heavy metal toxicity.

Natural Detoxification Support

Preventium® aids in removing fat-soluble toxins through the glucuronidation process, part of the body's Phase II detoxification pathway. This enhanced detoxification support, equivalent to the amount of D-Glucarate found in 225 servings of broccoli, 177 servings of apples, and 100 servings of carrots, was demonstrated in controlled studies with adults with liver disorders [9][10]

Liver Health Promotion

Preventium® plays a crucial role in the removal of excess steroidal hormones via the glucuronidation pathway, offering potent support for liver health. It can lead to significant improvements in liver function, a claim also supported by the aforementioned studies. [9][10]

Contributes to Healthy Cholesterol Levels

By enhancing liver health, Preventium® may also contribute to lower serum cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, and triglyceride levels. A study involving adults with metabolic syndrome found that D-glucarate significantly reduced LDL cholesterol levels, likely due to its inhibitory effect on cholesterol synthesis in the liver. [11]

Anti-Inflammatory Properties

Preventium® may help maintain a balanced inflammation response in the body by decreasing pro-inflammatory cytokines IL-6 and TNFα, while increasing anti- inflammatory IL-10.

Toxicity Reduction

A crossover trial involving adults with diagnosed heavy metal toxicity demonstrated that Preventium® can significantly reduce the body's burden of these toxins, potentially aiding in their elimination through glucuronidation. [12]

Kudzu Roots

Renowned as the 'Miracle Root' in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), Kudzu root promotes comprehensive health and recovery from alcohol-induced discomfort.

Post-Alcohol Relief

Kudzu root soothes upset stomachs, curbs nausea, and boosts energy levels. This adaptogenic power allows for more rapid recovery from alcohol-induced discomfort and swift restoration of vitality. [13][14]

Liver Protection and Cognitive Clarity

Known for its hepatoprotective properties, Kudzu root helps maintain liver health, accelerating alcohol metabolism, and reducing alcohol-induced inflammation. It also shields brain cells from alcohol-related damage and lifts brain fog, contributing to cognitive wellness. [15][16]

Antioxidant Power and Inflammation Relief

Kudzu root is rich in isoflavones, including puerarin, daidzein, and daidzin, potent phytochemicals known for their antioxidant properties. They help mitigate the body's inflammatory response to alcohol and its byproducts, alleviating associated symptoms like headaches and body pains. [17]

Enhanced Absorption and Efficacy

Utilizing an optimized extraction process, Kudzu root supplements increase the bioavailability and effectiveness of their active component, puerarin, providing more robust results than consuming raw Kudzu root. [13]

Metabolic Health Support

With the potential to optimize insulin resistance, Kudzu root's active components could offer significant benefits to overall metabolic health. [20]

Licorice Roots

With a rich history spanning thousands of years in use within Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), Licorice root is known for its anti-inflammatory and liver-protective properties, a holistic aid for recovery after alcohol consumption.

Liver Protection and Detoxification

Licorice root is known for its liver-protective properties that bolster the detoxification process, which is crucial for alleviating hangover symptoms and promoting overall wellness after alcohol consumption. Its active compound, glycyrrhizin, aids in detoxifying harmful alcohol metabolites and accelerates recovery. [21]

Inflammation Relief

Glycyrrhizin found in licorice root exhibits potent anti-inflammatory properties. It works by inhibiting the production of pro-inflammatory cytokines and blocking the activity of certain enzymes involved in the inflammation process. These actions can control the inflammatory response induced by alcohol and its byproducts, thereby potentially mitigating symptoms such as headaches and body pain [21]

Immune Boost and Speedy Recovery

Licorice root, fortified with glycyrrhizin, enhances the body's immune response, aiding in faster recuperation after a lively night out. [21]

Cellular Stress Management

Licorice root stimulates the adrenal gland, which is crucial in regulating cortisol, the body's primary stress hormone. This makes it a powerful adaptogen that can help manage oxidative and cellular stress, promoting overall vitality. [22]

Energy Boost

Licorice root has been used in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) for over 4,000 years to combat fatigue, aiding in a more energized morning following alcohol consumption [21]
