It only takes a few days of drinking in a row to feel like you’re liver probbbbably needs a little break, am I right?
I mean I know that everyone always goes on cleanses from alch but I feel like if you’re going to do that then you might as well spend your time also actually CLEANSING your liver while you’re at it.
Last time I went on a cleanse from alch I spent the week drinking dandelion root tea everyday and loved knowing that it was helping me out. Dandelion root has nutrients that help stimulate bile production and cleanses the liver to keep everything moving smoothly so you also get better digestion.
I definitely noticed that I felt better which made me want to dive deeper into HOW to actually cleanse my liver and figure out what else I could take to really make a difference.
I learned that I was on the right track with the dandelion root tea but I also found out that there are 3 other main liver cleansing ingredients:
- MILK THISTLE
- CHANCA PIEDRA
I’ve heard of milk thistle, I was surprised by artichoke because I LOVE artichokes and I’ve never heard the word CHANCA PIEDRA before in my life.
So MILK THISTLE is a herb that has been used for thousands of years and it helps with liver disease as well as liver diseases caused by toxins.
The CHANCA PIEDRA has been used in ayurvedic medicine to help with the removal of kidney stones and it has a special protein that helps the liver with oxidative stress PLUS it stimulates bile production and may have additional benefits for the kidneys.
So it’s basically EXTREMELY important for digestive health.
Last but not least, ARTICHOKES, apparently have extremely great benefits for digestive health which is why it is recommended to people with upset stomachs and indigestion. The liver benefits in artichokes are most likely due to a substance called cynarin which also helps increase the production of bile which speeds up the movement of food and waste.
You’re liver is the largest and heaviest internal organ and it is SO important that it functions properly because it processed anything you eat and drink, helps your body store vitamins and helps to detoxify your bod.
So if your liver isn’t functioning properly then you’re probably not digesting foods very well and not absorbing your foods vitamins and minerals which leads to constipation, bloating, low energy and indigestion.
These are just a few of the things that are negatively effecting your liver on a daily basis:
- SOFT DRINKS
- PERSCRIPTION MEDS
- BEING OVERWEIGHT
- and more…
Luckily though we can help our liver by consuming the 4 ingredients that I talked about earlier!
Now, like I said, when I did my cleanse I drank GALLONS of dandelion root tea for three days.
I made a huge batch of it and then put it in a 1/2 gallon jug and kept it in the fridge so that I could have it chilled whenever I wanted.
BUT now I know that I can add in all these other herbs that will help. The bad news is I have no effing idea where to buy Chanca Piedra or if it even comes in the form of tea.
The good news is that I found this product which is a liquid form of advanced liver support and it contains ALL 4 ingredients that we we’re talking about earlier!
I like the idea of liquid form because we can absorb it quickly compared to pill form.
