As the largest solid organ in the body, our livers have a huge amount of work to do and if they are over-taxed then we feel tired if not exhausted and mentally far from cheery and happy! In fact, a burdened ineffective liver can make us feel low spirited and lacking in energy both mentally and physically.
Milk Thistle is a plant that can help the liver help itself. It will clean, protect and repair the liver through its detoxifying biochemistry.
There have been many studies linking Silibinin (one of the main active Milk Thistle biochemicals) to helping prolonged periods of stress and anxiety. All conclude that Silibinin will increase levels of serotonin and inhibit the decrease of dopamine. Equally, removing toxins will de-burden the body of components that tire us and finally, Milk Thistle prevents the depletion of glutathione, which is essential for the liver detoxing processes. [All excessive alcohol intake depletes glutathione].
But there are other liver herbs like dandelion, burdock, barberry, artichoke and more. All have been used for many centuries to help the liver work better and process more efficiently.
