The liver is an incredible organ, serving over 500 metabolic functions. Liver imbalance often begins as digestive issues, due to low digestive bile production. Constipation, skin rashes, reoccuring illnesses, hormonal imbnalances, mood swings, poor circulation, acne and swelling at the joints are all signs of a "low functioning" liver.
NETTLE: This common weed, often gets over looked for its liver benefits. Nettle is loaded with key micro nutrients. Researchers believe that these compounds can boost lipid metabolism, increasing the oxidation of fatty acids, and reducing oxidative stress in the liver.
CALENDULA: is considered a mild bitter, thus supports liver function, which in turn encourages healthy, radiant, glowing skin. Calendula's compounds support the movement of lymph fluid, which enables better detoxification at a cellular level.
DANDELION ROOT: enhances digestive bile production, allowing for metabolic waste removal to occur.
MILK THISTLE:Several scientific studies suggest that substances in milk thistle (silymarin) protects the liver from toxins, including certain drugs, such as acetaminophen (Tylenol), which can cause liver damage in high doses. Silymarin has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.
