Liver Health

Liver Health

Modern living has us rushing around like never before. The first thing to suffer is usually our diet, with less fresh ingredients and more highly processed ‘convenience’ food. Not surprisingly, our digestive system is often affected.

  • The extra burden on our liver can mean toxins build up in the body.
  • Toxins are everywhere – in the air, in our food, even in our clothes.
  • They include chemicals, pesticides, bacterial compounds and waste products of our own metabolism.
  • The body normally expels them through urine and faeces, but if liver function is reduced, our health can be compromised.

Symptoms of Liver Problems

  • Headaches
  • Digestive complaints
  • Nausea
  • Skin conditions
  • Fatigue
  • Irritability

How to manage liver health

The best way to help your liver function properly is a regular detoxification. A proper diet, adequate water, daily exercise and sufficient rest and relaxation will all help your body to remove toxins naturally.

Milk Thistle

This herb is a well-known liver tonic that’s been used for centuries in traditional European medicine and shown by modern clinical research to enhance liver function and detoxification.

Dandelion

Dandelion herbal extract has long been used in the Ayurvedic medicine of India as a tonic, to tone and strengthen the liver and improve detoxification.

Globe Artichoke

This enhances gall bladder function and bowel regularity. It also stimulates the liver to increase its output of bile and helps to maintain healthy cholesterol levels.

If symptoms persist, seek advice from your healthcare professional.
