What are the benefits of Cleanse and Build?
Supports Liver and Kidney Function
Helps Remove Ammonia from the Blood
Supports Growth Hormone Release
Helps Build Muscle and Reduce Body Fat
Combats Chronic Infections
Cleanse and Build was originally formulated by Lidtke Technologies for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (Lou Gehrig’s Disease) patients.
These patients suffer from severe liver dysfunction that results in elevated blood ammonia levels and free-radical damage to nerve cells. Although ammonia is a normal metabolic byproduct of protein metabolism, and the kidney produces ammonia as a means of alkalizing the blood, severely elevated ammonia levels are neurotoxic, and in the ALS patient this eventually contributes to paralysis. Although Cleanse and Build is not a stand-alone solution to ALS, it is designed to be of benefit to individuals who have diminished liver function, persistent infections, or poor musculature.
How Does Cleanse and Build Work?
The chief ingredients in Cleanse and Build are the amino acid, L-Arginine; the amino-acid compound, L-Ornithine alphaketoglutarate (OKG); and the amino acid, L-Lysine. Both L-Arginine and L-Ornithine are components of the livers urea cycle and work by converting blood ammonia (NH3) into urea. This results in excess nitrogen being eliminated through the urine. Additionally, L-Arginine is the major source of nitric oxide (NO) in the body. Nitric oxide has been the object of intensive medical research in recent years and is known to be one of the main weapons used by the immune cells, macrophages, to kill parasites and foreign invaders.
Eighty percent of the bloods excess ammonia is normally disposed of by the livers urea cycle, so the importance of the urea cycle cannot be overestimated. The remaining twenty percent of excess blood ammonia is largely handled by the Glutamine cycle. In this cycle, alphaketoglutaric acid picks up excess ammonia and, in so doing, becomes L-Glutamate. Although L-Glutamate is an important brain neurotransmitter, when too much becomes concentrated in neural synapses it, too, becomes toxic. It is currently believed that excess L-Glutamate is one of the more damaging biochemicals in the brain of ALS patients. The bodys solution is to convert L-Glutamate to L-Glutamine by picking up another ammonia group. As you can see, L-Glutamine is essentially a compound of alphaketoglutaric acid, plus two ammonia groups. L-glutamine is therefore a carrier of excess ammonia that leaves the brain and passes through the blood to the kidney, where the ammonia is removed from glutamine and is eliminated through the urine. The entire Glutamine cycle is driven by Alphaketoglutaric acid, a component of OKG.
What do Doctors Think about Cleanse and Build?
A medical researcher and former professor of medicine at the Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, Texas, calls L-Ornithine alphaketo-glutarate (OKG) the best liver cleanser I have found. It should be understood, however, that not all OKG is the same. European research demonstrates that a two-to-one (2:1) ratio of L-Ornithine to Alphaketoglutaric acid is the proper ratio by which to manufacture OKG. This is the ratio with proven clinical benefits. Unfortunately, nearly all OKG sold in the world today is manufactured in the less expensive, and less effective one-to-one ratio (1:1). Cleanse and Build is made exclusively with 2:1 ratio OKG.
The Build part of Cleanse and Build comes first from the fact that the amino acids, L-Arginine, L-Lysine, and L-Ornithine all stimulate the release of growth hormone, as proven by clinical studies. When using growth hormone releasers, after a few months consumers may experience a reduction of body fat and an increase in muscle. Muscle growth, of course, depends on the absorption of nutrients, and one of the finest promoters of nutrient absorption is silica, as found naturally in the herb known as Horsetail. For more than one-hundred and fifty years homeopathic physicians have recommended silica when food is poorly absorbed. Cleanse and Build only uses the finest European Horsetail extract, naturally high in silica, extracted without toxic solvents.
To complete the formulation, a host of ingredients in Cleanse and Build. . . beginning with mixed natural carotenoids (including beta carotene, alpha carotene, lutein, and lycopene), Ester-C, and other macrophage and immune promoters . . . are appropriate for individuals with fungal or bacterial infections. Cleanse and Build was conceived after repeated clinical trials and represents our most advanced and targeted formulation when diminished liver function, persistent infections, or poor musculature are present.
