Herbs for Detoxing!

I always get a ton of questions about different cleanses , what should be in them, and how they work! So today, we’re going to talk about some herbs that are great and should be incorporated in a natural detox!

My favorite herbs for detoxing are: Milk Thistle Seed, Dandelion Root, Hawthorn Berry, Yellow Dock Root, Burdock Root, Rosemary Leaf, Ginger Root, Green Tea Leaf Extract, Turmeric Root, and Buckthorn Root! Let's get into some of the benefits of these great herbs!

Milk Thistle Seed is a great herb that promotes liver and gallbladder health by providing free radical scavenging activity and support of normal liver cell regeneration. Milk thistle has been observed to demonstrate strong, supportive activity when liver cells are challenged by a variety of toxins. Milk thistle supports the normal regeneration of liver tissue, healthy liver and bile cholesterol. Milk thistle contains a compound called silymarin, a potent antioxidant that scavenges harmful free radicals. Additionally, it has been found to promote kidney health and may also support the prostate gland. Dandelion Root: Dandelion leaves substantial amounts of Vitamin A, as well as, moderate amounts of Vitamin D, Vitamin C, Vitamin B, iron, silicon, magnesium, zinc, and manganese.Dandelion root is regarded as a "liver tonic," a substance believed to support the liver in an unspecified way. The bitter properties of dandelion help to support healthy bile production in the gallbladder and bile flow from the liver.

Hawthorn Berry: Hawthorn has been used in China for centuries for digestion and in Europe to promote a healthy heart. Hawthorn supports healthy vessels of the heart by promoting normal blood flow and maintains normal blood pressure. Hawthorn contains a group of chemicals known as flavonoids, the main group of components in this plant, thought to work together to support the heart in several ways. First, hawthorn extract can support healthy vessels of the heart by promoting normal blood flow. Second, hawthorn helps maintain normal blood pressure. Lastly, as an antioxidant, hawthorn helps to maintain healthy collagen matrices of arterial walls so that the vessels maintain elasticity.

Yellow Dock Root: Yellow Dock Root functions to promote skin and liver health and is a mild laxative. Yellow dock also helps support a healthy digestive system. It supports the appetite and promotes normal bile flow, which supports normal digestion. Like other popular herbal laxatives, yellow dock contains anthraquinone glycosides, contributing to the herb’s frequent usage as a laxative to support healthy bowel movements. The tannins in yellow dock also give it a digestive bitter quality that could support appetite and bile flow, which promote normal digestion.

Ginger Root: Ginger is a shoot-like plant with a single purple-green flower that contains a thick root from which uses for this plant originate. It is native to coastal India, but it now grows and is harvested in Jamaica, China, Africa and the West Indies. The root is the source of ginger’s aroma and is also the source of the spice. Ginger has been used for years to support healthy gastrointestinal health and to support healthy bowel movements. Ginger also supports a healthy cardiovascular system.

Turmeric Root: Turmeric is part of the ginger family. Its stalk is used in both food and medicine, creating the common yellow ingredient that colors and adds flavor to curry. In traditional Indian Ayurveda, turmeric is thought to support general body strength, vision and normal milk secretion. Within dietary supplements, turmeric is found both alone, and in combination with products created to exert antioxidant activity and provide gastrointestinal support. The primary active compounds in turmeric are the flavonoid, curcumin and related “curcuminoid” compounds which deliver potent antioxidant properties.
