Milk Thistle! Defend & Rebuild Your Liver!

We live in a toxic world, no one can dispute that. But it's our liver that takes a great majority of the burden. And the stresses to the liver are caused by more than just the chemical pollutants in the air. There are those in our food, in the pharmaceutical drugs that we take and even second hand smoke.

But the liver has more to do than just filter poisons out of our body. In order for us to remain healthy our liver also performs (but is not limited to) the following functions:

  • Blood detoxification and purification
  • Metabolism of fats, proteins, and carbohydrates
  • Bile production and excretion
  • Enzyme activation
  • Excretion of bilirubin, cholesterol, hormones, and drugs

Care of the liver is key to TOTAL BODY HEALTH!
