What You Should Know
Many bodybuilding supplements are methylated, which means they have an impact on the liver. After a cycle of these supplements, the bodybuilder or athlete needs to take a post cycle therapy (PCT) supplement to help the liver recover. Organ Shield is designed to be taken 365 days a year as a protective barrier against damage. This is not a supplement designed specifically for the off-cycle. There are no ingredients in the formula to boost muscle mass or promote metabolism.
List of Ingredients
Milk Thistle, N-Acetyl L-Cysteine, Alpha Lipoic Acid, Beta-Sitosterol, Saw Palmetto, Quercetin, and CoEnzyme Q10.
Milk thistle is one of the oldest ingredients in the alternative medicine book. It is commonly used to protect the liver and boost liver health. It works by detoxing the liver and support healthy cell production.
N-Acetyl L-Cystine is an antioxidant. Bodybuilders often take antioxidants to fight free radicals. Free radicals are produced in larger quantities in bodybuilders than the average person.
Alpha Lipoic Acid is another antioxidant. This antioxidant is unique because it is both water- and fat-soluble. Along with fighting free radicals, alpha lipoic acid also supports the production of other antioxidants.
Beta Sitosterol supports healthy cholesterol levels. It may also prevent fat storage, though there are no clinical studies listed with the product description to this effect.
Quercetin and CoEnzyme Q10 are two additional antioxidants that help support healthy cell reproduction and energy production.
Everything about Organ Shield is positive. There are no negative side effects to worry about, but the dieter will not gain the support they are looking for from this supplement. It will not promote weight loss and it does not suppress hunger. It may, however, support overall health.
- Supporting overall health.
- May help maintain healthy cholesterol levels.
- Designed to keep organs safe during supplementation.
- Does not need to be cycled.
- Not designed for average dieters.
- May not help shield organs from the effects of steroids and other strong supplements.
New bodybuilders often jump into supplementation with one mission on the mind – getting bigger. They have no idea that the ingredients in some of the supplements they take will affect the liver and other organs. Typically, PCT supplements are taken after a methylated cycle to help the liver heal and prevent lasting damage, but Organ Shield is slightly different. It is designed to be taken daily, but that does not mean it is strong enough to fight off the effects of strong supplements. There are some supplements for bodybuilding that will cause organ damage and this supplement will not stop that effect. This is for daily use to provide organ support when taking common supplements.
