The liver and kidneys are the body's filtration system that rid the body of toxins as well as performing other necessary and vital functions.
These organs can only function optimally when they are free from toxins and have the necessary nutrients to operate properly.
Contributing to the difficulties of our body combating toxins is a poor diet and lifestyle factors, such as lack of exercise and stress.
The liver, the major “filter” for the body, uses a two phase elimination process called Phase I and II. Those processes require these specific nutrients: B vitamins, glutathione (amino acids), antioxidants, Carotenoids, Vitamin E, whole food vitamin C, amino acids, and sulphurated phytochemicals; garlic and cruciferous veggies such as broccoli, cabbage, kale, onions, and parsley.
To ensure you have all the nutrients required it is suggested you add a B vitamin complex and a whole food vitamin C and eat lots of garlic and cruciferous veggies, preferably raw.
In today's toxic environment every individual needs to add liver and kidney support supplement as part of their daily regimen.
When the liver and kidneys are not nutritionally supported or adequately cleansed of toxins, they become sluggish and cannot perform their function adequately, resulting in disease processes; fatigue, headaches, insomnia, depression, poor digestion, allergies, skin problems, poor concentration. Over time, the storage of these toxins may lead to chronic illnesses such as cancer, arthritis, and Alzheimer's disease.
Optimal Liver/Kidney provides a mild cleanse and fortifying action for these organs without doing a full scale cleanse protocol, making it ideal for daily use.
Milk Thistle is an herb that has been used for centuries as a natural antioxidant for the liver and biliary tract, scavenging free radicals and inhibiting lipid peroxidation.
Research has shown that milk thistle promotes the regeneration of diseased liver cells and protects them against some poisons. This exciting find gives milk thistle a role in any chronic liver disease and especially those due to alcohol, drug or dietary abuse. It may also aid with gallbladder problems.
Barberry is an excellent herb for improving liver function and promoting the flow of bile. Barberry is suggested when there is an inflammation of the gallbladder, the presence of gall stones or then jaundice occurs due to a congested liver.
Dandelion root is a very powerful diuretic and is a natural source of potassium, making it an ideally balanced diuretic that may be safely used without depleting the body of essential minerals. As a cholagogue (discharges bile) it may be used in inflammation and congestion of the liver and gallbladder.
Optimal Liver/Kidney also contains other essential nutrients for proper liver and kidney function such as zinc and lipase. Optimal Liver/Kidney is also a part of a comprehensive Cleansing Protocol. See Level 1-3 Cleanse, Half-Day, Ten Day, and Cleanse Pak.
