 Vitalabs' Drug Free

Description


Vitalabs' Drug Free features potent detoxifying botanicals including milk thistle, yellow dock, red clover, burdock root and goldenseal root. This nutrient complex eliminates toxins from the body and promotes liver, gastrointestinal (GI) and skin health. Drug Free contains a synergistic blend of "blood purifiers" or "alternatives" - traditional herbs believed to remove toxins from the blood.
Milk thistle (Silybum marianum) and burdock root enhance the liver's natural ability to eliminate toxins. Milk thistle contains a flavolignan complex called silymarin, a potent antioxidant that blocks damaging free-radical activity in the liver. Burdock root contains polyacetylenes that have anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory effects on the liver and GI tract. Burdock also contains inulin and mucilage that help improve digestion.


Burdock root is traditionally considered an alternative herb, along with red clover and yellow dock. These blood purifying or alternative agents have beneficial effects on the GI tract, liver and skin. They also help improve digestion and are traditional remedies for skin conditions such as psoriasis and eczema. Red clover contains genistein isoflavones, which have weak estrogen-like properties. Studies suggest that red clover can help reduce menopausal symptoms in women.


Goldenseal root contains beneficial alkaloids, including berberine and hydrastine. These potent alkaloids give goldenseal its therapeutic properties and are anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory, a digestive stimulant and a mild laxative. Goldenseal is used to treat inflammation and infections of the mucous membranes and GI tract and to maintain a healthy immune system.



Pros


Since DHEA levels decline with age, supplementation may be useful for middle-aged adults with low DHEA and hormonal levels. If DHEA levels drop below 180 ng/dL in women and 220 ng/dL in men, DHEA supplementation may become necessary.


Drug Free's detoxifying blend of herbs supports the body's natural cleansing process and liver health by removing toxins that build up due to drug use, pollution, stress and hormonal based products.


The nutrients in Drug Free have the following benefits:

  • Promotes liver, GI and skin health
  • Eliminates toxins
  • Improves digestion
  • Reduces menopausal symptoms in women

Cons


Certain people may experience mild, transient diarrhea with milk thistle, yellow dock and goldenseal. Goldenseal may also cause nervous excitement, decreased blood pressure and difficulty breathing.


Goldenseal should not be taken long term. Goldenseal should be taken at intervals of 3 weeks on and 2 weeks off, to avoid possible alkaloid toxicity.


People who are allergic to inulin should not use burdock root.


Pregnant or lactating women and people with pre-existing medical conditions or on medication should not supplement with Drug Free without consulting a physician.
