Using a high potency formula, Livatone Plus is said to promote new and improve detoxification for better health, better digestion, and from the other product ads I’ve seen, better weight loss along the way.
After all, if you flush out toxins, one would assume that you would automatically lose weight while possibly increasing metabolism.
Can it live up to these claims? Let’s take a closer look to find out!
Inside Livatone Plus
While I couldn’t find a supplement fact label for Livatone plus, liverdoctor.com was open about the ingredients found inside the formula, but not necessarily the concentrations. Here are a few of the more effective ingredients found inside Livatone Plus:
Milk Thistle Seed Extract: This ingredient has been used for years as a natural treatment for various liver problems, including cirrhosis, jaundice, hepatitis, and gallbladder disorders. While it does offers some antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects, there is insufficient evidence proving that Milk Thistle is an effective treatment.
Taurine: An amino acid that might be able to improve liver function in patients with hepatitis, Taurine requires 4 grams, 3 times daily for 6 weeks. It is unknown whether or not Livatone has enough Taurine to produce results.
Green Tea Extract: The only effective fat burner in the formula, Green Tea can increase energy levels, decrease appetite, and even eliminate toxins from the body. Unfortunately, Green Tea is part of a 379 mg blend -and most experts recommend that dieters use 300-400 mg in order to see weight loss results. Since the blend consists of 9 other ingredients, I doubt there’s enough green tea to do anything at all.
L-Glutamine: Another amino acid, Glutamine has shown to be an effective ingredient for HIV patients due to the fact that it improves the absorption of nutrients. However, the studies showed that L-Glutamine was responsible for healthy weight gain – not weight loss – and it requires at least 40 grams in order to be effective.
It also contains a wide selection of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants to promote a better immune system and improve your overall health.
Livatone Plus Side Effects
Since there are unknown amounts of green tea found in the formula, you might want to be aware that this ingredient can cause the following problems:
• Stomach Upset
Consumers should note that Livatone Plus does contain the herb Pysllium which may cause allergic reactions.
While Livatone should be safe to use with other medications, you’ll want to consult your doctor before making any changes to your diet.
Livatone manufacturers specifically warn that Livatone Plus has an unusual and distinctive smell – which is supposedly normal due to the ingredients found inside. According to Dr. Sandra Cabot, “This is intentional and not surprising because in order for these ingredients to improve liver function, they need to smell (emphasis added). There is a similar analogy with garlic, as if the garlic is strong and unprocessed it will work much better, but it well smell.”
Because Livatone Plus contains large amounts of B Vitamins, sulphur rich amino acids, and broccoli powder (also high in sulphur) it smells, well, odd.
Supposedly the smell won’t give you bad breath or gas, but just in case, I’d watch out.
Combining Livatone Plus With Other Supplements
Considering all the unusual quirks associated with this product, I’m not sure why you’d want to bother combining Livatone Plus with anything. However, manufacturers say it’s perfectly find to use Livatone and Livatone Plus at the same time because they work “synergistically” with each other.
While this may be true, I can’t help but think that this is simply another way to get you to buy more of their products.
Livatone Plus is fairly affordable, so even if it’s not a good weight loss supplement, it can still be a good source of vitamins and minerals. You can buy Livatone Plus in various sizes for the following prices:
240 capsules: A 2 month supply that costs $25 a month
120 capsules: A 1 month supply that costs $30 a month
200 grams powder: A 40 day supply that costs $40 for little over a month
Currently there is no money-back guarantee or return policy associated with this product.
How to Use Livatone Plus
Livatone Plus is an all-natural product that can be used on a long-term basis. In order to get the best results, you should start with a smaller dose of Livatone (about 1/2 teaspoon or one capsule daily), for the first week of use.
Then as your body adjusts, you can work your way up to the recommended dose of one teaspoon (or capsule) twice daily. If you’re taking the powder, you can mix it with juice to hide the taste.
Additionally, Livatone Plus can be taken by children under ten (supposedly) – but in much smaller doses, about 1/4 to 1/3 teaspoon.
Surprisingly enough Dr. Cabot stated that Livatone and Livatone Plus can be ground into powder and mixed with pet food.
For small-sized dogs, you can combine 1 teaspoon daily
For medium-sized dogs, you can combine 1 1/2 teaspoons daily
For large-sized dogs, you can use up to 2 teaspoons daily
For cats – 1/2 to 1 teaspoon daily.
I guess if you want to use Fluffy as your test dummy for the supplement and see if it works for him, then by all means go ahead.
Livatone Plus – Conclusion
Livatone Plus may sound exciting, using a technique that most assume will promote weight loss (even though Livatone Plus does everything but deny any weight loss results). But as it turns out, Livatone Plus doesn’t even count as being better than the original produced by the same company!
