Marin Plus helps provide support for the liver with silybin (from the milk thistle plant), vitamin E, zinc, medium chain triglyceride (MCT) oil, and curcumin (the active ingredient in turmeric). When liver function is compromised, the exact reason can often be difficult to determine. Supporting the liver, regardless of the reason, is essential to help keep it working properly. The liver participates in many activities within the body. It helps the digestion of food through production of bile and helps change digested foods into substances used by the body for energy and growth. The liver stores vitamins and minerals and works with sugars (carbohydrates, glucose), fats, and proteins. The liver also helps to filter the blood.
