LSA Caps helps you take care of your liver, so it can take care of you. Generally considered the hardest working organ in the body, the liver performs more functions than any other. Most commonly known for detoxification, it also helps maintain fluid and electrolyte balance, supports proper glucose metabolism, assimilates numerous vitamins and nutrients efficiently, enhances cellular energy production, and much more. LSA Caps supplies nutrients to nourish the liver, and to protect and support its optimal functioning. Use LSA Caps daily to experience widespread systemic health improvements while warding off potentially serious health consequences.
Artichoke Leaf Extract 10:1 (Cynara Scolymus) – The compounds that make up artichoke leaf—primarily cynarin—have demonstrated antioxidant action and the ability to help maintain healthy digestion and liver function through promotion of healthy bile flow.
Broccoli Extract 20:1 – Broccoli, like all cruciferous vegetables, contains an organic sulfur compound called sulforaphane, which helps increase levels of detoxification enzymes and protect the liver from damage.
Milk Thistle (80% Silymarin) – Silymarin (pronounced SILL-ee-MAR-inn) is a flavonoid extract from the seeds of the milk thistle plant and is touted as one of the most potent liver-protecting substances known.
N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine (NAC) – N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine is the nontoxic, bioactive form of the amino acid cysteine and is readily assimilated into the body from the intestine. NAC itself has antioxidant properties and is a precursor for the endogenous production of glutathione, arguably the most potent antioxidant there is.
BlueRich® Blueberry Concentrate 36:1 – Blueberries contain a number of compounds—namely anthocyanins and pterostilbene (pronounced terro-STILL-bean)—that have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, both of which help protect optimal liver function and aid in preventing liver cell damage. BlueRich® is a super-concentrated (equal to over 1/3 cup of whole blueberries), all-natural and GMO-free standardized blueberry extract.
Vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid) – Has liver-protective capabilities, and works with NAC to help boost bodily levels of glutathione. Vitamin C also helps maintain the stability of NAC.
Selenium (L-Selenomethonine) – This trace mineral, chelated to the amino acid methionine for superior absorption, is involved in the endogenous production of glutathione. Low selenium levels have been shown to correlate with increased risk of liver cancer risk.
Molybdenum (Molybdenum Glycinate) – This trace mineral, chelated to the amino acid glycine for maximum bioavailability, plays a significant role in the production of a number of important enzymes and enzymatic reactions, including xanthine oxidase/dehydrogenase and aldehyde oxidase, which are involved in the liver's detoxification of environmental toxins, alcohol, and certain drugs.

So this is a bit more difficult to rate say in comparison to Race Caps or Anti-Fatigue Caps. I will tell you I am 58 years old and just had to renew my Life Insurance and my Blood Test results showed Liver Enzyme Levels like a 19-year old according to my Physician. I think I'll stick with the LSA caps.
Hi Alex, we're glad the LSA Caps are helping you stay lean and mean! Keep Hammering
All Hammer Nutrition Products are awesome,!!, If you are a serious, athlete , this is for you!!
Been taking for about a week now, and the differences are subtle but noticeable. Blood sugar seems to be much more stable especially in the morning. Overall energy has gone up a bit and is much more stable throughout the day. Will definitely purchase again.
Taking this product in hopes of improved liver function.
Is LSA Caps a long term supplement, such as Mito Caps /Race Caps Supreme, which I use, or should it be cycled?
- Asked by Lou
- Verified Reply - SteveLSA Caps is best used as daily, long-term supplement. One of the reasons is because some of the nutrients in the product--especially N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine (NAC), broccoli extract, and selenium--supply benefits that go beyond supporting liver health.
Can this help if you have nonalcoholic fatty liver disease?
- Asked by Amy
- Verified Reply - SteveWhile all of the nutrients in LSA Caps have benefits for liver health, three in particular are especially helpful for someone with NAFLD… 1. N-Acetyl Cysteine (NAC). A molecule that supports and replenishes the natural antioxidant glutathione, N-acetyl cysteine (NAC) is a versatile sulfur-rich compound that prevents liver damage following acetaminophen poisoning (Millea et al 2009). It rapidly restores depleted glutathione levels, sparing liver cells from the effects of oxidant damage (Bajt et al 2004, Mehta et al 2002, de Oliveira et al 2006). NAC improved liver appearance and reduced fibrosis in patients with NAFLD (de Oliveira et al 2008). And, given to rats with NAFLD, NAC stimulates regeneration of healthy liver cells in animals that have part of their livers removed (Uzun et al 2009). 2. Silymarin (Milk Thistle). Extracts of milk thistle have long been used for liver protection. Silymarin is composed of six major active molecules such as silybin, which are known as flavolignans, having exceptional antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activity (Schrieber et al 2008, Feher et al 2008). One very effective combination is silymarin plus vitamin E and phospholipids (such as phosphatidylcholine); this approach improves the overall antioxidant activity of the compound (Loguercio et al 2007). In animal studies the combination limited liver depletion of the natural antioxidant glutathione, and reduced mitochondrial stress damage (Serviddio et al 2010). Human trials have shown that a preparation providing 376 mg silymarin, 776 mg phosphatidylcholine, and 360 mg vitamin E produces therapeutic effects in patients with a variety of different forms of liver damage, improving insulin resistance, reducing liver fat accumulation, and reducing blood levels of markers of liver scarring (Trappoliere et al 2005, Federico et al 2006, Trappoliere et al 2005). 3. Selenium. This trace mineral is incredibly important in helping protect against liver cancer, which NAFLD is believed may lead to if untreated. Another Hammer Nutrition product that would extremely beneficial is EndurOmega (https://www.hammernutrition.com/products/daily-essentials/enduromega/), our omega-3 essential fatty acid fish oil supplement… A meta-analysis reported this year in Gastroenterology Research and Practice found a benefit for supplementing with omega 3 polyunsaturated fatty acids among individuals with nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), a growing global health concern. Researchers at Tongji University School of Medicine in Shanghai selected ten randomized, controlled trials concerning the effects of omega 3 that included a total of 577 participants with NAFLD or nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH)--a more serious condition that can develop from NAFLD. The median dose of omega 3 was 2.85 grams per day consumed for a median of 12 months. The control groups received placebos or no treatment. Ultrasonography of the liver evaluated the change in liver fat in five studies. The team found over three times the odds of improvement in liver fat levels in association with omega 3 intake in comparison with the control subjects. Omega 3 supplementation was also associated with significantly greater reductions in serum gamma-glutamyltransferase (GGT, which is elevated in liver damage) levels compared to the controls. Additionally, high-density lipoprotein (HDL) levels increased to a greater extent in omega-3 supplemented subjects compared to the controls and triglyceride levels were reduced. "Currently, NASH is rapidly increasing as a cause of end-stage liver disease and hepatic carcinoma," Wenxia Lu and colleagues observe. "At present, there is no registered drug for the treatment of NAFLD, and there is a need to improve therapeutics for this condition." "In this meta-analysis, omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids improved liver fat, GGT, triglycerides, and high-density lipoprotein in patients with NAFLD/NASH," they conclude. "Therefore, omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids may be a new treatment option for NAFLD."
