Milk Thistle is a powerful liver-protective herb with a long history of traditional use to support healthy liver function. Milk Thistle contains a special antioxidant compound known as silymarin, which helps to protect antioxidant levels against free radical damage associated with stress and environmental pollutant.
Detoxification is important because of the many common pollutants and toxins our bodies are exposed to everyday. If the liver and digestive tract become overloaded, cells that line the intestinal wall can become damaged and more permeable. This can lead to the reabsorption of toxins and disrupt the delicate balance in the gut, causing constipation, bloating, excessive flatulence, irregular bowel movements and overgrowth of harmful bacteria. You may also feel tired all the time, irritable, nauseous and be prone to allergies and other immune disorders caused by an imbalance in the digestive tract.
Globe Artichoke is a bitter tonic with liver-protective and restorative properties. It is used as a cleanser in cases of skin problems and body odour; and as a liver-restorative in cases of liver insufficiency and damage, liver disorders, fatty liver, poor digestion, gallstones or chronic constipation.
Dandelion Root enhances liver and gallbladder function, and has traditionally been used to help with liver problems and congestion. This herb helps to improve digestion by stimulating bile flow. It is also beneficial for skin conditions, as it stimulates the excretion of toxins and acts as a blood purifier.
Burdock is a herb which contains bitter constituents within its root. It is the bitterness that stimulates digestion. This cleansing herb provides nourishing support for the blood and the liver, and helps rid the body of metabolic wastes.
Schizandra fruit contains active ingredients known as lignans. Isolated from the seed oil, at least 13 of these lignans have a protective effect on liver cells and regenerate damaged liver tissue. Lignans activate the enzymes in liver cells that produce glutathione – a powerful antioxidant that detoxifies harmful substances so that they can be excreted through the bile. Multiple studies
support its liver- protective and antioxidant properties.
Taurine is an amino acid which plays a major role in the liver via the formation of bile acids and detoxification. Abnormally low levels of Taurine are common in those with chemical sensitivities and allergies. Taurine is the major amino acid required for removal of toxic chemicals and metabolites from the body.
