05 Mar Can Milk Thistle help cleanse your liver?
The weather is getting warmer, the days are brighter and the evenings lighter for longer – spring has almost arrived! It’s the season of regeneration and new beginnings and, traditionally, time for a spring clean! While you’re clearing out the attic and sprucing up your surroundings, it’s also a fantastic time to spring clean your body with a Milk Thistle liver cleanse too.
When the weather is cold and grey, we tend to choose more comforting foods, which are often high in carbohydrates and fats. In addition, there are plenty of occasions where we might overindulge with lots of seasonal celebrations over the festive period. That’s why spring is a great time to think about adapting your diet so that you can help your system run more smoothly.
When we eat or drink too much, the liver has to work harder to remove toxins from your system. It’s the only organ in the body that can regenerate, and it’s extremely important that it does so, because it performs so many essential functions in the body.
Not only does it neutralise and destroy all toxins, it also converts food into energy and fights any infections. So keeping your liver in tip-top shape is crucial to maintaining good health.
A helping hand to cleanse your liver with Milk Thistle
Milk Thistle has been used traditionally for millennia as a natural way to help detoxify and protect the liver. Traditionally used as a natural treatment for liver disorders, it’s a trusted herbal remedy that people choose to help relieve the symptoms of overindulgence in food or drink. In tablet form, Milk Thistle is sometimes referred to as ‘hangover tablets’ because they’re often used following a night out with a little too much alcohol.
Also known as ‘Holy Thistle’ or ‘Lady’s Thistle’, it can grow as much as ten feet tall and has distinctive red and purple flowers. It’s referred to as “milk” thistle because the plant leaves secrete a white, milky substance when they are crushed.
Milk Thistle is a great liver cleanser and natural antioxidant with anti-inflammatory properties and is traditionally used to help recalibrate the body after overindulgence.
