The job of the liver comes with so much responsibility, strength and
resiliency. We believe we must do our best to protect, support and
strengthen this very important organ as much as we can and that’s why we
have chosen the following herbs to do so:
Artichoke Leaf may protect your liver from damage, reduce
liver inflammation, lessen fat deposition and promote the growth of new
tissue. Research shows that certain antioxidants found in artichokes —
cynarin and silymarin — are partly responsible for these benefits.
Burdock Root helps prevent damage to the liver and has been
shown to be effective in treating liver damage. A gentle herb that
improves liver function and elimination while decreasing the amount of
lipids deposited into the liver. Studies have also shown that burdock
increases the amount of glutathione in the liver, an antioxidant that
helps protect the liver from harmful chemicals.
Calendula Flower is antiviral and long been prized for its ability to clean and detoxify the body, in particular the liver and gallbladder.
Chicory Root has a beneficial antioxidant effect that provides
functional support to the liver and has a promising role for halting
oxidative stress and improving conditions within the liver. Research
shows that it can help protect against free radical formation to prevent
possible toxicity to the liver. It also has the ability to detox the
liver and supports the breakdown of fats by increasing the flow of bile.
Dandelion Root has long been held as a liver tonic. Studies
suggest this is due, in part, to its ability to increase the flow of
bile. The increased bile production also helps the liver to digest foods
and remove toxins quickly and efficiently cleaning the liver. The
polysaccharides in dandelion are known to reduce stress on the liver and
support its ability to produce bile.
Licorice Root has been shown to have anti-inflammatory,
antiviral, and liver-protective effects. The main active component in
licorice root is the saponin compound glycyrrhizin. Glycyrrhizin has
been shown to help treat viruses that infect the liver through
Milk Thistle Seed has been shown to help the liver by keeping
toxins from attaching to liver cells due to its antioxidant properties.
Studies show that it may help ease inflammation, promote cell repair
and lower key liver enzymes that allow a more normalized functioning
Peppermint Leaf has been shown to promote the production of
bile that helps digest fats and encourages normal cholesterol levels.
Normal cholesterol levels reduce the liver’s total workload.
Additionally, compounds in peppermint leaf may protect the liver against
Turmeric has many beneficial effects derived from its
anti-inflammatory, antiviral, antibacterial, and antifungal properties.
Studies suggest it’s antioxidant activity can improve liver health by
behaving as a detox agent in the body. Turmeric also ensures the
natural and smooth flow of bile and prevents the build-up of more fat in
