Organ Shield by Purus Labs
Purus Labs maintains its focus on bringing you safe, anabolism-inducing
product stacks by engineering the most pivotal protection compliment to
any “pro-anabolic” cycle. Purus Labs Organ Shield™ was specifically
designed to support, protect, and restore hepatic (liver), prostatic
(prostate), and cardiovascular (heart) function during times of high
stress, such as when using “pro-anabolics.” This blend of specific
antioxidants, flavanoids, and phytonutrients scavenges free radicals
preventing them from attacking healthy cells as well repairing damaged
cells. 365 days a year, whether ON-cycle or OFF-cycle, this is a must
for any serious athletes’ arsenal!
The antioxidant milk thistle has been used since Greco-Roman times to
treat an array of liver ailments. Several studies suggest milk thistle
protects the liver from damaging toxins such as alcohol and certain
drugs. The active component most responsible for milk thistle’s
detoxifying effects is called silymarin. This substance, comprised of
several flavonolignands, helps repair liver cells damaged by toxins as
well as protecting healthy liver cells. It has also been purported to
have cholesterol lowering benefits as well.
NAC, arguably the pinncids, Saw Palmetto has been used in treating BPH
as well as male pattern baldness. This is largely due to its supposed
ability to inhibit 5-alpha reductase, an enzyme responsible for
converting precious testosterone into DHT, and interfering with DHT’s
binding ability to androgen receptors.
Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA)
Alpha Lipoic Acid is quite possibly the most novel, multifaceted, and
important antioxidants available today. It neutralizes free radicals in
both the aqueous and lipid portions of cells, is a key player in the
synergism of other antioxidants extending the metabolic life of
glutathione and Coenzyme Q-10, repairs liver damage, has blood lipid
modulating properties lowering risk factors associated with
cardiovascular disease (CVD), and enhances insulin function speeding the
removal of glucose from the bloodstream and ushering it into muscles.
Beta-Sitosterol is one of many phytosterols, phytochemicals naturally
occurring in plants, whose structure closely resembles cholesterol. It
has been shown to significantly lower cholesterol and has been used to
treat hypercholesterolemia. Its major mechanisms of action are thought
to be by preventing the absorption of dietary fat in the intestines
where fat is digested and by increasing the flow of cholesterol binding
bile acids in the digestive track excreting it in the feces.
Beta-Sitosterol has also been proven effective in many studies in
treating BPH (benign prostatic hypertrophy).
Rich in phytosterols and fatty acids, Saw Palmetto has been used in
treating BPH as well as male pattern baldness. This is largely due to
its supposed ability to inhibit 5-alpha reductase, an enzyme responsible
for converting precious testosterone into DHT, and interfering with
DHT’s binding ability to androgen receptors.
A highly active flavonoid, Quercitin, is yet another fierce antioxidant
scavenging free radicals within the body. It most notably improves
cardiovascular function by preventing the oxidation of LDL thus lowering
cholesterol, lowering blood pressure, and also possesses
Coenzyme Q-10 (CoQ-10)
CoQ-10 is a fat soluble, vitamin like antioxidant found in cells. The
biosynt:" ":h all cellular function depends. It is highly concentrated
in the heart due to the high energy requirements of this muscle and has
been studied due to the link between people with congestive heart
failure and their corresponding low levels of CoQ-10. It also aids in
healthy cholesterol levels because it inhibits the oxidation of LDL.
