Nobody wants toxins in their body. These herbs will help you get rid of them naturally.
Milk thistle: This helps protect the healthy cells in the liver from free radical damage or inflammation caused by toxins. It also stimulates the regeneration of new healthy cells and aids the body in mopping up toxins. It helps to increase glutathione production, the body’s major antioxidant substrate. This herb has no adverse side effect, though it may loosen stools slightly as it increases bile flow.
Tumeric: Tumeric protects the liver from incoming toxins through potent anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. It has a particular affinity for the liver and is therefore used in most detoxification programmes. Like milk thistle , it may soften stool. Turmeric has been shown to increase the production of bile by over 100 percent, making a powerful aid to toxin excretion (phase two). Note: If there is any indication of bile duct obstruction, this herb should not be administered.
Dandelion: Dandelion is beneficial for both the kidneys and the liver. Although its mechanism is not thoroughly understood, dandelion has diuretic properties (to flush out toxins) with potassiusparing effects, and helps protect against kid stones.
Burdock: Burdock is high in fructo-oligo-saccharides or FOS, which will eliminate the bacterial pathogens that can build up in the gut. Additionally, burdock increases saliva and bile secretions to help bring down, bind and excrete toxins from the body.
Fibre and Bentonite Clay: Fibre and bentonite clay are both used to help remove toxins and excess fats from within the bowel. During detoxification, toxin load on the bowel is increased considerably so, to ensure they do not accumulate in the gut, fibres and/or binding clays can be used to help attract, move and eliminate the toxins directly.
