Sorry, No Rabbits, But the Choline in Hepasil DTX is Magical
Unless you’ve managed to somehow lead a fulfilling life while ensconced in a bubble, chances are you are exposing your body’s cells to an assortment of toxins every day. And every day those ick-tacular substances blaze a path through your body straight to your liver.
Your liver then goes to work breaking everything down and sending the good nutrients out through your bloodstream and packaging up the toxins and getting rid of them.
Your liver needs some fuel to make all this magic happen. One nutrient that is especially magical is choline.
We humans can synthesize choline naturally, in small amounts, but for the most part, it must be consumed in the diet so we can stay healthy.
Choline is found in foods such as beef and chicken liver, egg yolk, soybeans, beef, milk, and peanuts. USANA’s Hepasil DTX also supplies 375 mg of choline bitartrate.
Choline is the Liver’s ‘Lovely Assistant’
Aside from playing a role in maintaining cellular integrity and function, choline helps the liver metabolize fats and cholesterol. Without adequate choline, the liver can’t remove the fats as effectively, which, over time, could cause liver dysfunction if the fats continue to accumulate.
PrestoChango — Choline Turns the Harmful Into the Helpful
Upon entry into the cell, choline is oxidized to become betaine (which, according to the all-knowing Wikipedia, is pronounced BEET-uh-een). Betaine is important because of its role in methylation. Methylation is basically a repair process in which new, undamaged methyl groups are used to patch up damage in proteins and DNA.
During methylation, betaine donates methyl groups to the amino acid homocysteine to form a different, essential amino acid: methionine.
Elevated levels of homocysteine have been associated with greater risk for several chronic health conditions. On the other hand, methionine helps remove fat from the liver and protect it from toxins.
Voila! Thanks to the methylation process, which is powered, at least in part, by choline, the harmful homocysteine is converted to helpful methionine, so your liver can keep healthfully working at its natural detoxification processes.
The Trick is Getting Enough
Because of its role in the methylation of homocysteine, optimal choline (and betaine) intakes have been associated with lower homocysteine levels. Alternately, if there isn’t enough choline to support the process, homocysteine levels can begin to climb.
The Institute of Medicine has observed that many people’s dietary intakes are below their recommended Adequate Intake for choline, which is 425 milligrams/per day for women aged 19 and older, and 550 milligrams/per day for men aged 19 and older. So, make sure you get enough choline by taking your Essentials and Hepasil DTX every day!

USANA Malaysia | Health Benefits. I love Hepasil. It loves my liver!
I want to know if it’s ok to take hepasil DTX together with CoQuinone 30 and BIOmega
Paula, there should be no reason why you couldn’t take Hepasil DTX along with CoQuinone 30 and BiOmega.
does anyone know if hepasil can be taken while doing 5 day Usana reset?
Hepasil is good while doing Reset since it improves the metabolism through the Liver, thus improving fat burning in the body.. 🙂
Hepasil DTX shouldn’t have any negative affects with any of our products. In fact, Hepasil would probably be very beneficial during RESET to help your liver with moving fats out while you are eating a clean and calorie restricted diet. The only concern that I know of is for people with liver disease. They should speak with a physician before trying Hepasil.
Can hepasil be taken together with usana essentials?

Is it safe to take Hepasil with blood pressure meds?
You would want to take the bottle with you to a doctor to ask that question. They would know better how ingredients would interact with certain medications.
