Take Care of Your Liver with USANA® Hepaplus™
Keep up your energy levels and manage your body’s detoxification with USANA InCelligence Technology®, which helps to support liver function.
Give your liver the support it needs.
Your liver does one heck of a job helping to process all the substances it comes into contact with throughout the day. It’s working constantly to keep you healthy and does a great job. So why not show your liver your appreciation with USANA Hepaplus.
Why Should You Support The Liver?
There are some very powerful ingredients that help with liver function, which is linked to your body’s metabolic processes.
The production of these substances are required to give your body energy, and assist with the removal of some toxins. Hepaplus also can boost antioxidant activity, which serves to protect cells from stress. Hepaplus is a supplement specifically researched and manufactured by USANA to help support the liver and the detoxification processes.
Is This Just Another Typical Cleanse?
Cleanses often involve crash dieting or drinking juices or teas to help cleanse your body. The thing is, these so called ‘Tea and Juice type cleanses’ don’t neccessarily help the Liver cleanse.
To detoxify, the liver doesn’t need a cleanse! The Liver is designed to do that itself and that’s what it’s supposed to be doing in the first place! However, Hepasil DTX gives it the quality nutrients it needs to work effectively.
How Does Hepaplus Work?
HepaPlus is specially designed to support your liver in several ways. USANA InCelligence Technology stimulates natural detoxification, and InCelligence Detox-Support Complex contains Olivol®, which USANA scientists derived from the olive fruit, in order to help remove your body of toxic substances.
In addition, HepaPlus is produced using Nutritional Hybrid Technology, meaning it offers a superior formula at a strength that other products may not be able to offer.

The Liver: Your Body’s Primary Processing Plant
Now we’ve got the base fundamentals down about the Liver. lets take it back to the beginning. The liver is one of your body’s major organs and weighs more than three pounds. It’s located just below your ribs and under the lungs on the right side of the body.
After the skin, the liver is your body’s second-largest organ and is responsible for keeping you healthy in a number of ways.
Almost everything you ingest passes through the liver after it has gone through the intestine. The liver then breaks down nutrients so the body can use them. It filters toxins and waste out of the blood and then alters them so they can then be eliminated. After it has processed everything, it returns the compounds to your blood and sends waste to the bowels and kidneys for elimination.
Did You Know The Liver Can Re-Grow Itself?
Not too many organs in your body can boost about this. The liver is a powerful organ that is capable of regeneration. Even when just twenty-five percent of the liver’s tissue remains, it can still regrow!(1) However, you can’t take your liver for granted, and it’s important to keep this powerhouse happy.
Alcohol, sugar, fat, misuse of medications, toxins, and pollutants can cause stress to your liver.
Avoiding these types of behavors that would endanger your liver would be an advantage and also take a positive step by adding Hepasil DTX as part of your daily routine to help with the detoxification processes.
HepaPlus Can Help Your Liver Convert Food into Energy
Your liver has the important function of breaking down all that you ingest, which then gives you energy. To do this, the liver needs nutrients such as biotin and choline, both of which are in HepaPlus.
Biotin is for generating metabolic enzymes, which break down nutrients into compounds that can be used by the body. In addition, they assist the liver in the production of substances the body requires for energy.
The body uses choline in metabolic processes that help to get unwanted cholesterol and harmful fats out of the liver. Choline also helps in the detoxification process. While your body can produce choline, it also requires more than it can make on its own so supporting it with high quality nutritional supplements could be beneficial.
Most people don’t ingest enough choline, and this is even more of a factor to be considered for those who engage in endurance activities such as marathons. Such activity can lower choline levels by 40 percent.
HepaPlus provides the biotin and choline to ensure that your liver has the optimal amounts to carry out its vital processes for your body.
HepaPlus Could Help With The Removal of Toxins
The liver produces and houses many enzymes that help convert toxins into other less harmful substances. The liver has two pathways for detoxification, and the process is generally broken down into two phases.
Phase I Detoxification Of The Liver
In Phase I, enzymes start converting a toxin by combining it with other molecules that make it unstable. This process is referred to as oxidation. In some instances, this process can actually intensify a toxin’s damaging properties, but in Phase II, these effects are counterbalanced.
Phase II Detoxification Of The Liver
In Phase II, the molecules combine with different detoxification enzymes. In the process, the Phase I by-products turn into substances that the body can then eliminate. For the detoxification process to run smoothly, it’s important for these two phases to be in balance.
HepaPlus provides the body with the right amount of nutrients to maintain a balance between the phases. Ingredients in the InCelligence Detox-Support Complex like milk thistle, turmeric, and broccoli concentrate support the liver’s detoxification processes. They do this in part by aiding the liver in the production of liver enzymes.
Glutathione’s Role in Your Health and Fighting Free Radicals
Glutathione is a Phase II detoxification enzyme and helps the liver regulate the body’s use of lipids, glucose, and amino acids. It also supports healthy liver cells in its antioxidant role. During the process of detoxification, there may be free radicals generated, making antioxidants all the more essential to protect the body.
Glutathione is present in food and supplements, but the body frequently does not absorb it. In the InCelligence Detox-Support Complex, there are nutrients that assist the body in the production of its own antioxidants, such as glutathione. When the body makes its own detoxification enzymes, the liver can work much more efficiently and maintain your health at optimum levels.
The InCelligence Detox-Support Complex serves to boost the production of free glutathione in the body and, along with it, boosts antioxidant properties to maintain your overall health and fight free radical damage.
All in all, HepaPlus increases the ability of the body to protect the liver and cells from free radicals.
Think You May Need A Superior Liver Support Formula?
In an increasingly toxin-laden world, supporting our natural detoxification processes is more important than ever. HepaPlus promotes healthy liver function and the InCelligence activity delivers a highly effective blend of nutrients that actively support the body’s natural protective processes.
These processes include enhancing healthy liver function and normal detoxification process, and supporting body’s endogenous antioxidants, such as glutathione, which is most concentrated in the liver. With two patents pending, the Hybrid technology of HepaPlus allows USANA to formulate a truly unique nutritional supplement that gives your liver what it needs to function at optimal levels.
