Description: Just the thing for the morning after the night before. St Mary’s Thistle has excellent role in healing the liver. Studies show it can protect hepatocytes (liver cells) from long term damage caused by chemotherapy drugs, alcohol and paracetamol.
Hepatitis and other conditions that damage the liver cause a hardening or fibrosis, which negatively impacts liver function. St Mary’s Thistle has been found to reduce fibrosis.
The only consideration with this safe herb is it may hinder iron absorption from food, so don’t have it at the same time as iron rich meals such as meat and green leafy vegetables.
Ginger, (Latin: Zingiber officinale) the tart knotty root spice, is probably the world’s most commonly used flavor additive.
Way back then, according to an essay published in China later on during the 3rd century BC, Shang dynasty rulers had already pinpointed the world’s finest ginger growing in Sichuan province. In those days ginger was also being widely consumed throughout India by the ancient Hindus. Both cultures thought very highly of ginger for both its use as a food ingredient and for its purported medicinal properties.
Its beneficial uses in this regard were thought to cover a veritable grocery list of common human ailments ranging from indigestion, to lack of appetite, the common cold, nausea, morning sickness related to pregnancy, leprosy, even restoring a low sex drive!
For many people, the thought of eating and drinking common lawn weeds is curious at best, but while Western society may not be known for eating and drinking herbs and plants, people have been doing so for thousands of years for their medicinal properties. The dandelion herb is one such useful plant, and its benefits have been utilized for generations to treat a variety of illnesses and promote organ health.
While many natural remedies utilize only one part of the plant (such as only the root) the dandelion is much more versatile in that dandelion leaves, the root, and even the flowering head can be used. It can be bitter tasting, which many people thoroughly enjoy. While the flavor can provide a unique beverage experience, most people enjoy dandelion benefits more than the tang of the tea. You may be very surprised to find out how very effective this tiny wild plant can be.
Starting with the liver, dandelion tea benefits can include both increased bile production (a great way to remove toxins from the body) and the manufacture in the liver of glycogen, which is great for diabetics. It also produces compounds that can help with constipation and other digestive organ health. This is why dandelion is considered useful for herbal colon cleanse regimens. An added bonus is that its nutritional contents are as high as some of the very best vegetables, meaning that essentials are not lost as rapidly through cleansing.
You’ll find dandelion benefits also include diuretic properties. This is because it stimulates the kidney function and can increase urine flow and output. Another added kidney bonus? If you have trouble with kidney stones, you may find that dandelion benefits can also include helping you pass the little buggers.
Dandelion benefits go way beyond these two vital organs, however, maintaining liver and kidney health will also have a domino effect on other organs and processes that benefit from the proper health and functioning of these two biologic powerhouses. So, enjoy a cup. Your taste buds won’t be the only part of your body to thank you! And remember that drinking even 8 daily cups of this powerful tea alone will not provide you with all the benefits unless you also adjust your overall lifestyle and switch to a low carb, moderate protein and fat diet, since incorrect nutrient balance in your body hinders the natural healing properties of home remedies.
