Liver Juice is a blend of herbs that support the elimination of waste products through the body's detoxification pathways. Supporting your liver pathways can help with the appearance of healthy skin (think blemishes) as well as hormone balance and energy levels. Optimizing phase I & II detoxification pathways is essential to our overall well-being, so supporting the body in its natural processes can make a difference in the way that we feel each and every day.
About the Formula
Back to basics: why the liver?
Today’s modern lifestyle exposes us to a variety of environmental pollutants that can affect everything from our skin to our energy levels. The job of the liver is to help us eliminate and neutralize the effects of these substances, all while metabolizing and detoxifying our very own hormones and byproducts of metabolism.
If you are experiencing feelings of occasional sluggishness, occasional gas and bloating, or want to support healthy hormone balance, one of the first things to consider is how well you’re supporting your liver. Certain botanicals, especially roots, help to encourage healthy elimination through our phase I & II pathways, thus supporting this hard working organ.*
Benefits & Uses
- Gently supporting liver detoxification pathways may help with:
- Improvement of mild blemishes
- Healthy energy levels, mental clarity and metabolism
- Digestive support, especially when it comes to occasional gas and bloating after consuming fats
- Healthy bile flow and normal toxin metabolism*
When it comes to the “how” of detoxification, we can think of the liver like a factory with two shifts.
The first shift (Phase I) receives raw materials, processes them into more complex and often unfavorable substances, then sends them to the second shift (Phase II). Phase II typically increases the polarity and thus water solubility of these substances for easier clearance from the body, and therefore needs to be functioning optimally for normal detoxification to be completed.
This is happening all day, every day. If the liver’s pathways become overwhelmed during their shift, whether due to occasional stress, environmental exposures, hormonal fluctuations, or even gut imbalances, this can affect how we feel and function. Liver Juice contains herbs like Dandelion and Burdock which support phase I, as well as Turmeric and Milk Thistle which help to maintain a healthy balance when it comes to phase II.*
Glowing skin from within
Used for thousands of years in Traditional Chinese Medicine, Burdock Root supports healthy detoxification, especially as it relates to the skin.
This nourishing, gently moving root is known in the herbal world as an “alterative,” meaning it encourages the smooth flow of elimination channels, supporting not only liver health but kidney and lymphatic health as well. Because the skin often takes on eliminatory functions, Burdock is a valuable tool for happier skin from the inside out.*
