Milk Thistle Seed Extract (Silybum Marianum)
Used since ancient Roman times, milk thistle seed is the best-known and most-used herb for maintaining and supporting the liver. Milk thistle is one of the few traditionally used herbs that has been widely accepted by conventional science to have significant medicinal value. Milk thistle generally supports the immune system through its powerful antioxidant, free-radical scavenging action, as well as direct effects on immune cells. Milk thistle reaches high levels in the liver, but is also helpful for other healthy inflammatory response associated with certain conditions.

This kitchen spice has gained world-wide fame as a detoxifying and antioxidant herb. It has excellent liver-supporting effects, and is thought to be helpful in many disease conditions involving the liver. Turmeric supports cleansing the liver, maintains clean blood, and supports proper digestion and elimination.
Bupleurum (Bupleurum Chinense)
Widely used in traditional Chinese medicine, Bupleurum root is known as a "harmony" herb, and is specifically indicated to support a weak or poorly-functioning liver. It maintains a strong inflammatory response, and has a nourishing and cleansing action on the liver, gallbladder and spleen.
Catnip (Nepeta Cataria)
It’s not just for cats anymore! Catnip has a soothing effect on the entire digestive system, and is a good source of stress-fighting B vitamins and crucial trace minerals. Catnip supports the healthy flow of bile and detoxifies the liver and gallbladder.
Astragalus (Astragalus Membranaceus)
This root has a long history of use as a general tonic and liver supporter. It increases and balances internal energy; supports resistance and maintains immunity; and supports digestion and assimilation.
