MediClear Plus® is a vegan protein powder with multiple vitamins and minerals and more for support during an elimination or detox program.*

Benefits - GI Support, Liver/Detox
The liver and other organs of elimination in the body are challenged by environmental and diet-related toxins, as well as the inability of nutrient-deficient vegetables, grains, and fruits to provide all the nutrients that are necessary for detoxification. MediClear Plus® is a low-allergenic, rice-and-pea-protein-based supplement that is formulated to support liver and colon detoxification.* This unsweetened, unflavored member of Thorne's MediClear suite provides essential detox nutrients and botanicals along with a complete range of vitamins and minerals in their most absorbable, tissue-ready forms.* MediClear Plus includes well-absorbed curcumin phytosome, grape seed phytosome, and green tea phytosome to help maintain the body's normal inflammatory response to toxic insults.* MediClear Plus is provided in a powder form that mixes easily with water, juice, or nut milks.*
Health-care practitioners know that many challenges to health can arise when a patient's liver is not functioning as it should, such as poor digestion, imbalances in intestinal bacteria, and fatigue. MediClear Plus includes beneficial detoxification nutrient cofactors, as well as an array of extra nutrients and botanicals.*
MediClear contains the vitamins and minerals that support the liver's detoxification actions.* These nutrients are provided in the most absorbable, best-utilized forms, including pyridoxal 5'-phosphate (active vitamin B6), L-5-MTHF (active folate), methylcobalamin (active vitamin B12), and well-absorbed mineral chelates from Albion Laboratories.*
In the liver's phase I detoxification process, harmful and unwanted fat-soluble substances are converted to intermediate metabolites by a group of enzymes called cytochrome p450 enzymes. These intermediate metabolites are often more reactive and potentially more toxic than the original substances. The liver's phase II detoxification process involves the attachment of other molecules onto these intermediate metabolites, which makes them non-toxic and water-soluble, thus allowing their elimination via the urine or intestines.
Rice and pea protein are used in MediClear Plus because of their low incidence of allergenicity. It is far more likely for dairy or soy protein to initiate an allergic reaction. Using rice and pea proteins facilitates the elimination of most allergenic proteins from the diet, while maintaining high-quality protein intake.

5-methyltetrahydrofolate (5-MTHF) supplementation is not recommended concurrent with methotrexate cancer therapy, as it can interfere with methotrexate's anti-neoplastic activity; however, this folate source has not been shown to interfere with the anti-inflammatory activity of methotrexate. An individual taking methotrexate for psoriasis or rheumatoid arthritis can safely take a supplement containing folate.
Curcumin has been shown to reduce the therapeutic efficacy of cyclophosphamide (Cytoxan) in animal studies. In vitro research revealed that curcumin decreased camptothecin-induced death of cultured breast cancer cells. Curcumin might also interfere with the absorption and efficacy of the chemotherapy drug irinotecan, used to treat colon cancer. The concurrent use of curcumin with these agents should be avoided.
