Your liver may benefit from support even without a diagnosed condition; for instance if you are experiencing any of the following signs and symptoms:
▪ Sluggish digestion and flatulence
▪ Feeling queasy after eating fatty foods
There are two important phases to liver detoxification: phase I and phase II. In phase I, toxins are neutralised or converted into intermediate forms that are then processed in phase II. These intermediate forms are often much more toxic than the original substance, so if the phase II detoxification systems aren’t working properly, these intermediates linger in the body and can cause damage.
In phase II detoxification the toxic intermediates created in phase I are bound to a substrate so they can be eliminated from the body. These substrates include sulphur-containing amino acids and nutrients like glycine, glutamine, and choline. In our diet these compounds are found in vegetables of the cabbage family, garlic, and certain dark leafy greens. If your diet is lacking in these foods, or if the liver isn’t functioning optimally, it can impact on phase II detoxification, the toxic load on the body can increase, resulting in many of the symptoms listed above.
Milk Thistle to support liver function
Milk Thistle has been used for almost 2,000 years in traditional medicine and remains one of the most important herbs to support liver function. Research suggests that Milk Thistle can protect the liver cells against toxic damage1,2,3 and that it supports liver detoxification4. Studies show that Milk Thistle also can increase bile flow and bile salt production. This can help relieve poor digestion, loss of appetite and digestive discomfort such as bloating5. Turmeric to support a healthy digestion Due to its high anti-oxidant content, Turmeric can help protect the liver against damage6.
Like Milk Thistle, it stimulates the production of bile acids to help support digestion7. Research has shown that Turmeric can help relieve colicky
abdominal pain, dyspepsia and flatulence8,9; as well as bring relief for those with IBS and IBD (inflammatory bowel disease)24.
