Weighing in at around three pounds, the liver is the heaviest and second largest organ in the body.

The liver has more than 500 functions to perform that are crucial to sustaining life; yet most people fail to realize how important the health of this organ is!

The liver's functions include:
  • Synthesizing blood proteins
  • Filtering blood
  • Purifying and clearing waste products, toxins and drugs
  • Metabolizing old hormones, internally-produced wastes and foreign chemicals
Supporting this crucial detoxification and waste elimination in the body is one of the key functional cornerstones of the PeakBio nutritional model.

The liver, kidneys, lungs, lymph system, bowels, and skin all work 24 hours a day to constantly filter every substance the body is exposed to and systematically attempts to catabolise and eliminate the waste products. If these waste products can’t be eliminated they are stored and eventually negatively affect metabolism and cell respiration.

Additional key functions the liver performs are:
  • Assimilating and storing fat-soluble vitamins
  • Metabolizing fats, proteins and carbohydrates
  • Storing important nutrients (such as glycogen glucose), vitamins and minerals
  • Producing urea (a primary waste product, flushed from the body in urine)
  • Regulating and secreting substances important to maintaining body functions and health
  • Production of bile
Bile is responsible for fat breakdown as well as toxin elimination. Its formation and flow is one of the most important detoxification vehicles available to the body and MAX LIVER has been specifically designed to optimize this amazing detoxification machinery.



If the body is choline deficient, fats become trapped in the liver (fatty liver) and block correct metabolization of our foods. Fatty liver is a condition associated with obesity and alcohol consumption and often leads to cirrhosis of the liver or liver failure.


Bupleurum is one of the most widely researched Chinese herbs and one of the most useful in delaying or even preventing liver cancer. Bupleurum’s traditional role as a liver tonic and protector has been substantiated by decades of clinical research that prove its ability both as an anti-inflammatory and an anti-viral. Bupleurum has also been shown to speed the healing of an injured or otherwise unhealthy liver.


L-Taurine supports proper bile production as it lowers serum cholesterol by combining with cholesterol to form bile. L-Taurine is also very effective at thinning bile in the gallbladder. L-Taurine is a key component of bile acids and plays a major role in optimal liver function and is required for the removal of toxic chemicals and metabolites from your body.

Cynara aerial parts

Cynara (the Brazilian name for globe artichoke) has a remarkable ability to regenerate liver cells and protect the liver against potent liver toxins. Cynara also increases bile production in the liver, and has been shown to reduce blood lipid levels. It is also increases the flow of bile from the gallbladder as well as the contractile activity of the bile duct, which makes this herb indicated in conditions where there is liver cell damage or chronic liver dysfunction.


Tumeric has been proven to protect the liver against damage due to is ant-inflammatory properties. It has also proven effective to shrink engorged hepatic ducts, so it strongly indicated to treat liver conditions such as hepatitis, cirrhosis, and jaundice.

Taraxacum (Dandelion) root

Taraxacum root gently tonifies (tones) and detoxifies the liver as it has a diuretic effect that can help rid the liver of toxins. It provides Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin D and Vitamin B complex, as well as zinc, potassium and iron, which is why Taraxacum is widely used as a remedy for liver ailments.


Bioperine® is the only source of piperine to obtain patented status for its ability to increase the bioavailability of nutritional compounds. When Bioperine® was administered orally to healthy humans in a dose of 5 mg per person per day, the serum levels of different tested nutrients significantly increased by up to 60%.
