Description

LIFE SHIELD Revolution™ is the ultimate Organ Health Support System. Providing advanced antioxidant & immune system benefits from carefully selected ingredients, Life Shield Revolution™ will keep your entire body shielded during the high-stress cycles in life.

N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine (NAC) – A potent antioxidant that functions by increasing glutathione levels. NAC has also shown efficacy for improving liver health after exposure to insults such as alcohol.
Idebonone – A derivative of CoQ10 that reduces free radical levels by promoting healthy metabolism.
Policosanol – Aids in maintaining healthy blood lipid levels by breaking down bad cholesterol, LDL.
3, 4 Divanillyltetrahydrofuran – The active component in Stinging Nettle Root, this compound helps to activate testosterone by liberating it from sex hormone binding globulin.

We all go through cycles, and some create much more stress on the body than others. Stress can manifest in multiple forms, such as liver damage or heart complications. LIFE SHIELD Revolution™ can help blunt the negative effects of stressors to promote good health.

Ingredient Profile

N-Aceytyl-L-Cysteine:

N-Acetyl-Cysteine is an acetylated form of L-Cysteine that is more bioavailable. It is often used for its high antioxidant content to reduce inflammation and counter oxidative stress.

  • It also works to bind various free radicals and poisons in the body so they can be removed through the digestive process and expelled.

Policosanol:

Policosanol is a mixture of lipophilic (fat-soluble) compounds derived from the waxy coating of Cuban Cane Sugar.

  • Policosanol seems to decrease cholesterol production in the liver and to increase the break down of LDL (low-density lipoprotein or “bad”) cholesterol. It also decreases the stickiness of particles in the blood known as platelets, which might help reduce blood clots.
  • Several studies suggest that policosanol is about as effective as statin therapy in reducing cholesterol levels.

Saw Palmetto Berries:

Saw Palmetto is a fatty acid mix from Serenoa repens that may increase testosterone and suppress prostate growth.

  • Saw Palmetto has the ability to block an enzyme that converts testosterone into dihydrotestosterone, a more androgenic form often associated with the negative side effects of testosterone.
  • In vitro studies have shown that components of saw palmetto impair the ability of ligands to bind to the α1-adrenergic receptor, inhibiting downstream signaling.

Celery Seed:

Celery seed  is a supplement containing a high amount of volatile compounds known as phthalides. These compounds as well as the major component Sedanolide appear to have general antioxidative properties and have traditionally been used as a diuretic.

  • Celery seed may help improve overall wellness, joint support, and digestive health.

3,4 Divanillytetrahydrofuran:

Divanil (aka 3,4-divanillyltetrahydrofuran, DVTHF) is an extract from the stinging nettle root (Urtica dioica). DVTHF exerts its effects by acting on testosterone transport proteins.

  • Testosterone in the human body exists either in a free circulating form or in inactive form bound to transport proteins. The transport proteins to which testosterone binds are albumin and sex hormone binding globulin (SHBG).
  • DVTHF binds with very high affinity to SHBG. It’s hypothesized that by binding to SHBG, DVTHF will increase the concentration of free testosterone.

Hawthorne Berries:

Hawthorne is a berry traditionally used to improve heart health and may have anti-inflammatory and anti-allergy effects.

  • Hawthorn contains many substances that may benefit the heart. These antioxidant flavonoids, including OPCs, may help dilate blood vessels, improve blood flow, and protect blood vessels from damage.
  • Hawthorne may also control lipid levels by blocking lipid absorption in the intestines.
  • Both animal and human studies suggest hawthorn increases coronary artery blood flow, improves circulation, and lowers blood pressure.

Milk Thistle:

Milk thistle is an herb that may be a liver therapeutic compound.

  • Milk thistle may increase the rate of protein synthesis in liver cells and encourage subsequent repair after injury to the cells.
  • It may also decrease LDL, triglycerides, and heart burn.
  • Limited evidence exists, but milk thistle may also have anti-obesity effects.
