Liver protection - Natural support for the detoxification center

Liver: Metabolic and detoxification center

The liver is responsible for detoxifying our body. Not only medicines, poisons and alcohol afflict it, so does inappropriate food with excessive levels of protein and lack of exercise. So, it is not just too much alcohol which gives rise to bad liver values.

If toxic metabolic products are insufficiently excreted due to liver function disorders, they can also damage brain metabolism and its signaling substances. This starts to be felt, for example, as

  • fatigue
  • lack of drive
  • irritability
  • lengthened reaction times
  • concentration and memory disorders

Such symptoms often occur long before a liver function disorder can be verified by means of blood liver values.

Liver strength is vitality

Liver function is a key, but often neglected, component of psychological health. In ancient times the liver was already considered to be the seat of the soul and well-being. In traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) the liver also symbolizes the balance between tension and relaxation. If this balance is disrupted - such as by too much stress - the body responds with despondency or anger. In Western culture we would say: It reacts cholerically or melancholically - either with exuberant or deficient "liver energy". Both words contain "chol" designating the "juice of the liver", bile.

The milk thistle (Carduus marianus) is also known by the names blessed milk thistle, Mary thistle, Saint Mary's thistle, Mediterranean milk thistle, variegated thistle and Scotch thistle.

Preparations made from the seeds of the milk thistle were already in use in ancient times - e.g. to counter the toxic effect of snake bites, to drain bile, for jaundice and constipation.

How does milk thistle act?
The active substance Silymarin is largely responsible for the efficacy of the milk thistle fruit.

Silymarin:

  • stimulates the regenerative capacity of liver tissue
  • supports liver protection
