- The Most Comprehensive Formula On The Market
To those of us that live the lifestyle, no sport is as great as bodybuilding. However, the bodybuilding lifestyle can be hard on such critical organs as the liver, heart, prostate gland, and kidneys. The demands of increased eating, aggressive supplement choices, and a rapid gain in mass can all have an impact on the body’s organs. As well, skin health and the prevention of acne is an important concern for many bodybuilders, as hormone levels tend to increase which in turn can wreak havoc on the skin.
This is where Liver and Organ Defender by 5% Nutrition comes in – we know the critical importance of supporting healthy organs and skin so we have created an extremely well-dosed, comprehensive formula that covers the fundamental health needs of bodybuilders and other elite athletes. It makes a lot of sense to take care of your health and the Liver & Organ Defender helps you do that no matter if you are on a cycle, post cycle or just want overall health support.
The liver weighs in at a little over 3lbs. At roughly the size of a football, it’s the largest vital organ in the body and regulates hundreds of chemical actions. Compared to the average person, bodybuilders put a great deal of stress on their liver due to aggressive supplement use and a higher than normal protein intake. The liver still must filter everything despite the increased stress. Liver and Organ Defender promotes liver health and function with a comprehensive ingredient complex that goes beyond anything offered by the competition.

The importance of a healthy heart is obvious. After all, your heart is largely responsible for keeping you alive, from pumping blood to oxygen transport to immune system health and function.
