These days we are becoming more and more aware of one of the most important organs of the body; our liver. Here are some facts about this concientious organ:
*Your liver is your largest internal organ. It weighs about 1.5 kilos*
Except for some fats, all the nutrients absorbed in the small intestine are carried to the liver where they are processed for use by the rest of the body.
* The liver is a "chemical factory". It is believed that it performs over 500 bio-chemical functions! *
It is also the largest gland in the body.
* The liver has the amazing capacity to regenerate itself under the right circumstances. No other body organ apart from the skin is able to do this. *
The fat soluble vitamins are dependant upon proper liver function for their absorption. Vitamins A, D, K and B12 are also stored in the liver. This is just a brief overview of this amazing organ and an invitation to treat it with the respect it deserves!
Milk Thistle Complex is a comprehensive formula containing traditional liver tonic herbs, including a massive 8000mg of Milk Thistle. Other herbs in this complex exert a mild laxative action and are a useful adjunct, helping to promote elimination of wastes.
A lesser known nutrient in this formula is Taurine, an amino acid which is involved in the metabolism of fats and the passage of minerals in and out of the cells. This formula may aid digestion and promote overall general health and well-being.
