Herbs in this green blend give your liver the love that it needs so that you can feel your best.
Working as a practitioner in the world of holistic healthcare has taught me a lot. One of those things being the importance of an optimally functioning liver. Our liver is responsible for detoxifying excess hormones and filtering impurities out of our bodies, processing fat and protecting the pancreas, glucose and glycogen storage in the body, vitamin and mineral storage, screening and filtering the blood, among other things. This blend of herbs helps to support the liver in functioning optimally so that we can feel more energized, clear, and in balance. This blend is also extremely nutritive (lots of vitamins and minerals), and may help eliminate excess water retention and improve lymphatic drainage.
1.5 tsp dried herb per cup filtered water. Pour boiling water over herbs, cover, and let sit for 10-15 minutes for maximum effectiveness. Drink 1-3 cups per day to support liver function.
