Dandelion Root (Taraxacum officinale radix)
Dandelion root relieves congestion of the liver and is an essential part of a detox. Traditionally used both as a general tonic and a liver tonic, dandelion helps the digestive system and is especially good for the digestion of fats. Because of its effect upon the liver it also helps to clear the skin. Dandelion root contains components that have been researched and found to have many beneficial effects, such as the elimination of pathogens in the gastrointestinal tract, for example the roots contain up to 45% inulin, a complex carbohydrate (fructo-oligosaccharides).
Milk Thistle Seed (Silybum marianum semen)
Extensive research has shown the incredible effects of this plant on the liver; it increases the numbers of hepatocytes (liver cells) that are working on detoxification of your system. It is a powerful anti-oxidant and works to protect the liver from damage.
Agrimony (Agrimonia eupatoria)
Agrimony, or ‘church steeples’ has traditionally been used as a spring tonic. The astringent and mildly bitter actions tone and support the gut, generally calming things down while increasing liver secretions and stimulating digestion. There has been some recent research into this plant and it is thought that the volatile oils are the ‘active’ component of this herb.
Fennel Seed (Foeniculum vulgare)
Fennel seed is excellent for reducing flatulence and griping in the gut. The seeds contain volatile oils that stimulate good digestion and are anti-spasmodic. Fennel is extensively used in traditional medicine systems across the globe.
Turmeric (Curcuma longa)
Turmeric is now widely known and used for many health problems in the Western world and has been used in Ayurveda (traditional Indian medicine) for millennia. Turmeric is extensively researched: many studies have shown that it stimulates and protects the liver, helping it to regenerate.
Cardamom (Elattaria cardamomum)
This beautiful, aromatic spice grows in Sri Lanka and Southern India. It is calming to the gut and stimulates the flow of saliva, thus improving digestion. It is very useful for intestinal cramps.
