milk-thistle-300x199 Need a Summers End Detox? Mother Nature Has the Cure!

Our health is endangered by so many toxic threats some we are not even aware of. This toxic onslaught is responsible for chronic health problems even cancer. Toxic threats come in many forms from unfiltered tap water full of chemicals, excess alcohol consumption, prescription drugs, junk food, even slathering on chemical laden sunscreen.

So whats a person to do?

Living in a bubble is not the solution! Fortunately there is one thing we can all do to protect ourselves daily from the bombardment of chemicals that come our way. The SOLUTION is to minimize your exposure by living a healthy lifestyle and PROTECT YOUR LIVER.

Your LIVER is the chief organ responsible for neutralizing toxins and escorting them out of your body. The liver is also needed to boost immunity and protect the body from viral and bacterial infection. When the liver is bombarded constantly with toxins it turns hard and ineffective and eventually over time stops working. You can not survive a day without your liver.

The good news is that the liver is known to rejuvenate itself if it’s taken care of properly. This is done by living a healthy lifestyle, getting off prescription drugs, and using a natural supplement to help strengthen and detox the liver.

Mother nature have provided us with a detox cure for the liver called MILK THISTLE

Milk Thistle works in 3 Distant Ways to Protect Our Health

  1. Once ingested, the active ingredients bind to the squishy membrane of our liver cells to form a protective “shield”. This keeps foreign molecules out and essential nutrients in.
  2. It acts as a potent antioxidant. As an antioxidant, milk thistle is equally powerful to other important nutrients like vitamin E or Vitamin C, which help fight free radical damage and slow the aging process that can lead to disease development.
  3. Milk Thistle attaches to foreign molecules (aka toxins) and carries them out of the body, keeping the liver from the accumulation of toxic threats.

Milk thistle is shown to decrease, or even reverse, damage to the liver that’s been caused by excess alcohol consumption, prescription medications, antibiotics, pollution, pesticides, heavy metals and so on.

Milk Thistle itself is non-toxic. It is a weed that grows mostly in California that is turned into extract or supplement form in order to reap its cell regenerating benefits. You can find the supplement at your local health store.  Adults will want to get 190 to 380 milligrams per day , split into two servings.

BOTTOM LINE: Whether your a health nut or not doing your best to avoid today’s toxins and supplementing with milk thistle can go a long way in preserving your health.

Be Well 🙂
