About Liver Tonic

Given the lifestyles, diets and environments of people living in developed nations in modern times, it is not surprising that the liver has a great detoxification burden to deal with. For instance, alcohol intake, consumption of chemical additives through food and the inhalation of industrial chemicals all leads to the introduction of man-made chemicals into the body. The liver then has to package these chemicals up and make them ready for excretion from the body. 


Apart from detoxification, the liver has a lot of other important work to do, such as manufacturing hormones, stabilising the blood sugar and even synthesizing bile. In fact, it is said to have over 500 separate tasks, being the largest solid organ in the human body! Given the liver’s high level of importance, it’s no wonder that it is the only organ that has the ability to regenerate. The liver even has the important role of synthesizing cholesterol, which is then used the synthesis of hormones, such as estrogen and testosterone. 


There are many tonifying herbal medicines that aim to protect the liver from a number of chemicals, as well as support its numerous biological functions. Some of these herbs are St Mary's Milk Thistle, Globe Artichoke and Dandelion Root. Many of these liver herbs have quite strong beneficial effects in other areas of the body. For instance, St Mary’s Thistle is not only a liver protectant, but also supports liver regeneration, inhibits collagen deposits in the liver, and has antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and kidney protective effects. This was reported in The Journal of Evidence-Based Integrative Medicine in 2015.


Unless we plan to ascend to the top of the chilly Himalayas and live in serenity in an environment unaffected by the meddlings of human beings, then we could probably do with a liver tonic every now and then. Even the most “friendly” alcoholic drink, organic pinot noir (red wine with the highest resveratrol content) still contains alcohol, which, unfortunately, does need to be detoxified in the liver.
