The Best Herbs For Liver Cleansing, Including Liver Tonic Recipe

Post by AlleyRose on Sun Apr 27, 2014 11:21 pm



The liver is one of the most vital organs in our body. It has a wide range of functions, including detoxification, protein synthesis, helping to regulate hormone activity, and production of biochemicals necessary for digestion. Everything we eat must be processed by the liver before it can be distributed throughout the body.

The liver is necessary for survival – currently there is no way to compensate for the absence of liver function in the long term.

This organ plays a major role in metabolism and is the master detoxifier – it cleanse the system not only of environmental toxins, but also of metabolic waste. So as you can see, the health of our body is directly related to the liver functioning at its peak.
There are some herbs that are particularly good for liver cleansing:
Burdock – one of the common uses for this herb is as a liver detoxifier.  When studies looked at what effects burdock might have on livers that have been damaged by alcohol consumption, the results seemed to show that burdock helped the liver to heal and acted to protect it from further damage. The conclusion was that burdock’s powerful antioxidants may be responsible, at least in part, for the results.
Dandelion – the root is the part that helps cleanse the liver. The roots are mainly used to stimulate the appetite, and for liver and gallbladder problems. Compounds in the root cause an increase in bile production and this helps to improve digestion. It also helps the liver to digest foods and remove toxins quickly and efficiently.
Wild yam – wild yam root has been known to be very effective for liver health. It lowers the cholesterol and blood pressure levels and thus helps the liver by reducing the stress in the body and increasing the efficiency of the liver.
Yellow dock – traditionally, yellow dock root has been thought to be a blood purifier and general detoxifier, especially for the liver.  Yellow dock root stimulates bile production, which helps digestion, particularly of fats. It also helps prevent any toxins from entering the gallbladder, bloodstream and liver, which in turn reduces these  systems’ overall workload. Yellow dock root can also effectively help in getting rid of foreign substances, which could create access burden on the liver, in general.
Milk thistle seeds – the seeds of milk thistle are known as a powerful cleanser of the liver. They contain phytochemicals that stimulate the secretion of bile from the liver and gall bladder. Click here to learn how to make Liver Cleansing Infusionwith milk thistle seeds.
Garlic – garlic contains many sulfur-containing compounds that activate the liver enzymes responsible for flushing out toxins from the body. This vegetable also contains allicin which is a powerful compound proven to help protect the liver from toxic damage, and helps it in the detoxification process.
Liver Cleansing Tonic Recipe
2 parts dandelion root
1 part wild yam root
1 part yellow dock root
1 part burdock root

Use 4 tbsp of herb mixture per 1 litre of water. place the herbs in a small saucepan and cover with cold water. Heat slowly and simmer, covered for 20-45 minutes. The longer you simmer the herbs, the stronger the tea will be. If the flavour is too bitter for you, you can add stevia, honey or natural maple syrup to taste. Drink 2-3 cups a day.
