Product Overview


  • Dietary Supplement
  • Hypoallergenic
  • Superior Hepatoprotective Herbal Formula with Flavonoid Phytosomes for Enhanced Absorption
  • With Siliphos (Silybin Phytosome) and Meriva (Curcumin Phytosome) for Better Absorption
  • Picrorhiza Protects Liver Cells from the Effects of Toxic Compounds

Silybum marianum (milk thistle) has been used for centuries to support liver function. Silymarin's hepatoprotective effects are accomplished via several mechanisms, including antioxidation, inhibition of lipid peroxidation, enhanced liver detoxification via inhibition of phase I detoxification and enhanced glucuronidation, and protection of glutathione depletion. Siliphos consists of the most potent flavonoid in silymarin (silybin) bound to phosphatidylcholine for enhanced hepatoprotection and bioavailability.

Curcumin, an active flavonoid from turmeric, has potent antioxidant, hepatoprotective, and gastroprotective properties. Curcumin is bound to phosphatidylcholine in the highly bioavailable phytosome complex – Meriva. Cynara scolymus (artichoke) has a long history of use in hepatic support.

Picrorhiza is used in Ayurvedic medicine to optimize liver function. In studies, Picrorhiza extracts and their constituents protected liver cells from damage caused by carbon tetrachloride, aflatoxin B1, and acetaminophen. Picrorhiza acts as an antioxidant and inhibitor of lipid peroxidation in cell membranes, and it also increases bile flow. The hepatoprotective effects of Picrorhiza may be due to its antioxidant activity – inhibition of oxygen anion generation and free-radical scavenging. Like silymarin, Picrorhiza can stimulate liver regeneration, possibly via stimulation of nucleic acid and protein synthesis.

Seems fine, no adverse reactions

My doctor prescribed T.A.P.S. as part of the heavy metal detox program I've been on for six months. I'm happy to say that even though I am allergic to some foods, I'm doing well with T.A.P.S. I also appreciate having the liver function support available in T.A.P.S. since heavy metal detox can overtax the liver.

Really keeps the liver in tip-top shape...

Posted by 5167523802085814753 on Aug 15, 2013 | Verified Purchase

I went to a kinesiologist some years ago, and he recommended this product to use daily to help to keep my liver healthy while taking several supplements and medications that all have to be processed by the liver, causing stress and some stagnancy. I truly believe that this product, which contains milk thistle, which is well known for its liver detoxification benefits, along with turmeric, artichoke, and picrorhiza (the ingredient that the kinesiologist said was the most potent here) keeps things flowing liver-wise, and that it is of great benefit to people like myself living with a chronic condition that requires lifelong treatment. The one suggestion that I would make for someone with stress factors on their liver would be to start slowly at first, taking maybe one a day, then slowly increase the dose over a couple of weeks or so. I recommended this to a friend who had been through breast cancer treatment, and she said it made her rather gassy when she first started taking it, which probably makes sense when someone starts treating a toxic liver condition. Giving one's body time to adapt to the detoxification process should help... BTW, you are very unlikely to find this in stores, and I think it's something of a well kept secret, usually requiring an alternative health care professional's recommendation to purchase. My doctor is always amazed that my liver enzymes are normal each time I get my numbers run, and I attribute it to T.A.P.S. I hope this helps others living with similar conditions.
