7 Nutraceuticals That Will Boost and Detox Your Liver

7 Nutraceuticals That Will Boost and Detox Your Liver | Supplements Today | Scoop.it
Optimizing liver function helps ensure the body can effectively rid itself of pollutants, heavy metals and various other toxins...

Sandi Cornez's curator insight, May 4, 1:55 AM

Did you know that your liver is one of the main detoxification organs in your body? In Traditional Chinese Medicine, the liver was regarded as the seat of your emotions. Taking very good care of your liver is one of the best steps you can take to ensure optimum function. In today's world with the accumulation of environmental toxins, pollutants, pesticides, herbicides, fungicides, in the soil, the air you breathe, and the water you drink, it's necessary to take high quality nutraceutical supplements and organic herbs.to ensure that your liver is working at its peak performance. It's important to eat real whole  organic plant based food as much as possible to reduce pesticides. Growing your own produce, buying at a farmer's market, CSA, or your local food Co-Op does make a difference in relation to the amount of pesticides you ingest from the food you consume.

 

Health Tips: These herbs and supplements help your liver to function well. 1. The bitter principals in Dandelion (pictured) increase bile production and bile flow in your liver. This is helpful for those of you with sluggish liver function either due to poor food choices or heavy alcohol use. Dandelion helps the liver and helps reduce the risk of gallstones. Avoid taking if you already have gallstones. . 2. Burdock, a relative of the sunflower is another herb which is beneficial to your liver. The root is used for medicinal purposes. Burdock is a blood purifier. It clears congestion in the lymphatic, respiratory, and urinary systems. It can help eliminate excess fluids in the body and stimulate elimination of toxic waste materials, which relieves liver disorders and improves digestion. Burdock detoxifies the liver. 3. Milk Thistle, also known as Silymarin, an extract of milk thistle (the supplement form), is available in early spring is used in the treatment of liver diseases such as alcohol hepatitis, cirrhosis, liver poisoning, and viral hepatitis. There is no pharmaceutical equivalent, which is good. Milk thistle has other beneficial uses too. 4. Licorice is also beneficial for your liver as it purifies the liver and blood. 5. Wolfberry, Fo-Ti, and Schizandra are also liver protectors. 6. The supplement NAC,  N-aceytl-L-cysteine is a well known sulfur rich antioxidant which is a precursor to glutathione (master antioxidant). NAC  boosts the body's ability to handle free radicals and oxidative stress.  7. Glutathione, the master antioxidant supports your liver by eliminating toxic breakdown products of overdoses. Studies show that concentrations of glutathione in your liver are greater than in any other tissue in your body.  8. The mineral Selenium supports glutathione production.

F.D.A. Warns Supplement Makers of Stimulant Dangers

F.D.A. Warns Supplement Makers of Stimulant Dangers | Supplements Today | Scoop.it
The Food and Drug Administration sent letters to the makers of eight dietary supplements on Thursday warning them that their products contain a synthetic, amphetaminelike stimulant that medical experts say is potentially dangerous.

Pharma Guy's curator insight, April 24, 6:32 AM


Dr. Cohen called the F.D.A.’s announcement an important first step. But he said he was concerned that under current federal law, which allows supplements to be sold without premarket approval, it is all too easy for companies to hide other hazardous chemicals in their products, as many have done. “We have a regulatory framework that makes no sense,” he said.


FDA's regulatory framework makes no sense not only because of the law, but also because of the supplement industry/FDA revolving door. The agency is not effectively policing the $33 billion-a-year supplements industry in part because top agency regulators themselves come from the industry and have conflicts of interest.
