Liver X receptors (LXRs) are important regulators of cholesterol, fatty acid, and glucose homeostasis. LXR helps metabolize fat, decrease inflammation (especially in gut), fight infections, improve glucose tolerance and detox. LXRs may help combat:

  • Heart disease,
  • Fatty liver,
  • Alzheimer's
  • Diabetes,
  • Inflammation,
  • Immunodeficiency,
  • Toxicity,
  • Gut inflammation,
  • Prostate and breast cancer (R).

LXR plays an anti-microbial role and protects against Tuberculosis (R).

Gene is also known as NR1H2.
