The liver is the largest organ in the body. It has multiple functions including the breakdown and decomposition of products received from the blood from the intestines like fats and converting glucose to glycogen. The liver produces certain amino acids and converts them to protiens like albumin. It acts like a filter, removing harmful toxins from the blood. Vitamins and minerals are stored in the liver. Also the liver make eighty percent of the cholesterol in our blood. These are just some to the functions of the liver and why it so essential to our overall health.

Numerous scientific studies have explored Milk Thistle and a group of its constituents called silymarins. Many of these clinical studies have demonstrated that this herb supports healthy liver function and provides powerful antioxidant protection, particularly from free radicals and other toxins that normally enter into the liver and cause damage. A primary constituent of silymarin called silibinin also helps to support healthy liver function, encouraging healthy cholesterol synthesis by the liver.* In addition to its well-recognized role in promoting liver health, key constituents in Milk Thistle also help to maintain normal kidney function and promote optimal immune function. Limited research suggests that this herb may also support healthy prostate function, and encourage a vital gastrointestinal tract by protecting it from free radical damage. More research is warranted to support the use of this herb for supporting its role beyond enhancing healthy liver function.
Most of the clinical research has been conducted in-vitro and primarily on animal cells using the isolated constituents. Turmeric extracts have shown considerable pharmacological activity, but the exact modes of its actions are not yet fully understood. Most researchers agree that the basic mechanism of action within Turmeric is its potent antioxidant action. Curcuminoids seem to scavenge for damaging particles in the body known as free-radicals.
This plant is very chemically complex and is full of antioxidants known as flavones. The flavones of particular interest are Baicalin and Baicalein. These antioxidants appear to downregulate the effects of oxidative stress on various tissues in the body including the liver. It also supports the body in having a healthy inflammatory response and promotes normal cellular growth.
Schisandra Berries provide powerful antioxidant protection, particularly from free radicals and other toxins in the environment that may cause cellular damage. Regarded as a popular adaptogenic agent, schisandra berries are unique in that they hold a remarkable blend of five distinct flavor properties collectively serving to promote overall health and vitality. Namely, bitter, sweet, sour, salty and hot. Schisandra berries function to enhance the bodys natural resistance and adaptation to stressful influences, support mental endurance and promote overall metabolic efficiency.* Much of the clinical research has focused on the effects of Schisandra on liver function, especially its effect on the production of various liver detoxifying enzymes as well as the antioxidant activity of the extract. More research is needed to fully understand the exact biochemical activity of this tremendous plant.
Licorice is covered by a positive German Commission E monograph and can be used for catarrh of the upper respiratory tract as well as gastric and duodenal ulcers in Germany as an OTC medicine. Although there have been numerous studies conducted on animals and humans involving both isolated chemicals from licorice and various preparations, more research is needed to determine the exact mechanism of the various actions of Licorice. That being said, it remains one of the most widely used and trusted herbal medicines among traditional botanical practitioners. It has also demonstrated important immune modulating effects in studies.
