The liver is a miraculous organ that supports digestion and detoxifies most of the waste products, toxins, chemicals, and pollutants that bombard our bodies on a daily basis. Liver cells produce a large amount of free radicals in the process of detoxification, and if these go unchecked, they lead to damage, degeneration, and aging. The whole body suffers when liver cells become strained in their function. Liver Support is a combination of botanicals that supports and protects these vital liver cells while benefiting other body systems.

Milk Thistle (Carduus marianus) seed extract
Milk thistle heals and supports the liver with silymarin, an active ingredient used to help alcoholic and nonalcoholic fatty liver disease, hepatitis, and poor digestion. Silymarin also slows aging and degeneration by supporting glutathione, one of the body’s most powerful antioxidants. Milk thistle combats liver-damaging inflammation, and it aids in the digestive process by supporting production and secretion of bile. By affecting bile flow, milk thistle also reduces the formation of gallstones. Its chemical compounds called flavonolignans prevent DNA damage and protect against several types of cancer. In addition, milk thistle has long been used by nursing mothers for its ability to increase production of breast milk.
Papaya (Carica papaya) leaf extract
This fruit is high in antioxidants and vitamins like carotenoids and Vitamin C, and it aids in digestion by supporting the liver. Papaya leaf has strong antioxidant properties that protect cells against damaging free radicals produced in the liver’s detoxification process. Enzymes in papaya leaf decrease constipation by breaking down proteins and carbohydrates. Papaya relieves menstrual pain and supports normal periods by balancing prostaglandins, chemicals related to hormone balance, inflammation, pain, and circulation. In addition, papaya protects against malaria and dengue fever, and it supports the healthy growth of skin and hair.
Yarrow (Achillea millefolium) leaf and flower extract
Named after the Greek mythological hero Achilles, this herb can easily be found in streams and backyards, and it has been used medicinally for thousands of years. Its chemical compounds flavonoids and alkaloids give powerful support to the digestive system. Yarrow relieves stomach and menstrual cramps by relaxing smooth muscles in the intestines and uterus. By enhancing proper bile flow, yarrow supports gut motility and proper breakdown of nutrients, which in turn relieves indigestion, diarrhea, and constipation. As an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory herb, it contributes to accelerated wound healing and tissue regeneration. Research has also shown that it can decrease blood sugars, support mental health, and fight cancer growth.
Recommended Dosage: Two capsules up to three times daily
