3 Herbs That Detox, Repair, and Regenerate the Liver

The liver might be the most vital internal organ in the human body. Not only is it the largest, but it also performs the most basic and essential tasks - over 500 tasks, to be exact. It's a sort of processing center that regulates and redistributes.
The liver takes a lot of abuse, from alcohol and medications, to stress and poor diet, so it only makes sense to do all we can to reverse this damage and ultimately protect our bodies and prevent further damage and disease.
For as serious as liver damage is, the treatment is stunningly simple. Incorporating 3 herbs into your diet is all it takes to detox your liver and stimulate regeneration.
o Milk Thistle is proven effective in the treatment of almost every liver disorder and disease, including hepatitis, cirrhosis, necrosis, and hepatotoxicity. It's also used to treat liver damage associated with substance abuse.
The active phytochemical in milk thistle is silymarin, a powerful antioxidant that heals liver damage and simultaneously promotes liver cell regeneration and protects the liver against future damage from toxins and poisons. In clinical trials, silymarin has proven extremely effective and pharmaceutically unmatched.
o Dandelion cleanses and purifies the blood. This powerful herb increases bile production and flow, and it promotes healthy kidney and gallbladder functions as well. Like milk thistle, dandelion has no pharmacologic equal. Research shows benefits to the entire digestive system.
o Artichoke is a serious natural herb (and again, like milk thistle and dandelion, has not been pharmaceutically reproduced). Artichoke's active phytochemical is called cynarin and is found primarily in the plant leaves. Like silymarin in milk thistle, cynarin promotes liver recovery and protection.
Artichoke, like dandelion, also increases the production of bile in the liver and promotes bile flow from the gallbladder to the rest of the body. This makes it essential for the detoxification and health of the entire digestive system, since bile is what digests, breaks down, and flushes poisons, medications and toxins out of the body.
Milk thistle, dandelion, and artichoke, along with simple changes in your diet and lifestyle, are all the body needs to cleanse, purify, detoxify, and regenerate the liver. Because they work in tandem, they can be found combined in herbal supplements. It's incredibly simple.
