LIVER, LIVER, CHICKEN DITHER...
Ah, the liver. The Gland Canyon of organs. The organ every glandmother hopes her glanddaughter will settle down with. When Chuck Norris eats a hamburger and turns it back into a cow, he thanks his liver. The only body part to double-bill as a gland and an organ, the liver acts as one of the primary lines of defence to process mild toxins that may include alcohol, excess amounts of sugar, etc. Because it bears the brunt of the unhealthy things we do every day, it needs to be kept happy or it can become as dangerous as handing a toddler the wrong-colored sippy cup. By supporting the liver and keeping it healthy before concerns arise, LiverClean™ can help promote healthy liver function throughout your life.
HERBS IN LIVERCLEAN
Barberry Root Bark
Barberry root has been used in folk medicine from Europe to Africa for hundreds of years. Modern studies have shown it to have antioxidants and alkaloids, which have far-reaching remedial uses. The most potent alkaloid it contains is berebein, which has been studied for its immune-supporting effects in test tubes and is used to support the body's natural, healthy state free from excess inflammation.
Blessed Thistle Herb
This herb comes from both the European and Ayurvedic herbal traditions and was believed to be holy or 'blessed' because of its power. As a "bitter" herb, it is believed to help stimulate the production of gastric juices for healthy digestion. It was also often used to support lactation in nursing mothers.
Native to Chile, Boldo leaves are a common addition to yerba mate drinks in the region. Introduced to Europeans in 1875, it was often used to calm the belly. Comprised of 2% essential oils and numerous isoquinoline alkaloids, the herb may have a mild diuretic effect and may help stimulate the body's normal excretion of uric acid.
A bee's first food in spring, dandelion is not just a weed that grows in your lawn. Every part of it is well known in herbal circles to have beneficial health properties. The root supports healthy functioning of the liver, thyroid, and urinary tract, as well as the kidneys, spleen, and gallbladder. Often used as a support to the cellular removal of toxins, the dandelion root was first known in TCM but quickly spread to Arab, Welsh, and Native American herbalists.
An ancient Chinese proverb says, "When white radish is in season, doctors should take a break." That should tell you everything you need to know about this superfood. Rich in nutrients, antioxidants, and other health-boosting components, radish root has a positive effect on almost every bodily system.
Wild Yam Root
A herbaceous twining vine, wild yam contains steroidal saponins, which studies have shown may help protect the body from free radicals. This can be beneficial for the eyes, as blue light damage can increase free radicals. In TCM it was used to promote positive bile flow and to support the digestive system.
Fennel, today used as a natural breath mint, was used in Medieval times by the poor and rich alike. Symbolic in Greek mythology, this seed was used in early Egyptian, Chinese, and Indian civilizations as well. Rich in a myriad of vitamins and minerals, it is still a popular spice today, and packed with antioxidants and can help support the body's natural, healthy state free from excess inflammation.
A particularly aromatic spice, cloves have a rich and fascinating history of ancient trade patterns. Used to freshen breath before audiences with Chinese emperors, they were extremely valuable and profitable and were believed to have magical powers. They contain high amounts of eugenol, which makes them particularly useful as carriers to increase the effectiveness of other herbs.
