- Milk-thistle extract helps support the liver by stimulating liver enzymes.
- Also contains other beneficial extracts from green tea, olives, and turmeric.
The liver serves many important functions. It supports the body’s normal metabolism of nutrients, including fat and cholesterol, and helps synthesize glycogen for energy.
In an increasingly toxin-laden world, supporting our natural detoxification processes is more important than ever. Hepasil 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 supplement that gives your liver what it needs to function at optimal levels.
How Does HepaPlus Affect Cell Signaling?
HepaPlus contains a unique blend of ingredients that alter cell signaling pathways tied with glutathione production. This process increases both the body’s antioxidant and detoxification capacity, by increasing plasma glutathione and vitamin C levels.
USANA HepaPlus delivers a comprehensive array of phyto-chemicals, including green-tea extract, milk-thistle extract, broccoli concentrate, and USANA’s patented Olivol® olive-fruit extract.
HepaPlus utilizes patent-pending Nutritional Hybrid Technology, enabling USANA to manufacture a truly unique, comprehensive liver-support supplement by combining previously incompatible
but equally important nutrients into one bi-layer tablet
Used as a natural remedy to support liver health for more than 2,000 years, milk thistle is used by the liver to protect against oxidative stress. Additionally, it stimulates liver detoxification pathways and has strong antioxidant properties thought to help strengthen and protect liver cells.
As an antioxidant, milk thistle helps increase the amount and the activity of several antioxidant enzyme systems that are involved in the detoxification process, such as superoxide dismutase (SOD) and the glutathione peroxidase system. the active phytochemicals in milk thistle may also stimulate protein synthesis in liver cells, which helps to regenerate them.
This powerful antioxidant performs vital functions at the cellular level, such as energy production. Alpha-lipoic acid is easily transported across cell membranes to provide support to the important enzymes both inside and outside the cell, plus also providing antioxidants to protect against damage to the body’s cells.
Because it is both water- and oil-soluble, it is thought to help regenerate both water and oil soluble antioxidants.

Turmeric, the powdered root of the plant Curcuma longa L., is a member of the ginger family native to India and Southeast Asia. It contains curcumin and related compounds known as curcuminoids, which have significant antioxidant properties. It has powerful anti-inflammatory effects and is a very strong antioxidant.
Choline and the Liver
Choline supports healthy liver function by donating methyl groups necessary for detoxification reactions. Cholinephospholipids are extremely important structural elements of cells and are essential for the normal processing of dietary fat, a key function of the liver. In addition, adequate choline intakes have been associated with lower levels of plasma homocysteine, meaning choline can also play a role in heart health. Hepasil contains 125 mg of choline bitartrate.
N-acetyl-L-cysteine is an essential precursor for glutathione. Glutathione is an important antioxidant that scavenges free radicals inside and outside the cell and promotes detoxification. Its extra-cellular activity helps protect the liver from free radicals and toxins.
