This powerful liver-protective formula helps to prevent the free-radical damage to liver tissue that is generated during stressful engagement with so-called toxins. When a substance is metabolized in the liver, free-radicals are generated; this is a simple fact of Nature. There is an evolving understanding in modern Naturopathy that it is the free-radical response to a toxin that does the damage, rather than the toxin itself. What this formula endeavors to achieve, is a reduction in the damage that might occur as a consequence to the generation of freeradical molecules. By direct antioxidant action, as well as by enhancing the function of the liver, this formula exerts a powerful influence. The building of healthy tissue is also relevant for a number of herbs in this formula.
Milk Thistle seed has a long history of traditional use; primarily as a support to liver health. In modern times, we understand its ability to protect liver tissue from the free-radical stress generated during liver metabolism.
Schizandra berry is a valued kidney and male tonic of the Traditional Chinese system of healing. Within this system it is often referred to as a ‘king’ or ‘harmonizing’ remedy, alluding to the broad-reaching influence of this small ‘five flavored’ berry. It is also deserving of great respect as an adaptogen (increasing non-specific resistance to stress). In fact, the power of its adaptogenic influence has been compared to the highly regarded Siberian Ginseng. The depth of modern research compiled over the years on its use attests to Schizandra’s validity.
Licorice root claims more than 3,000 years of use. Its early use to promote respiratory health is now being ‘rediscovered’ by modern scientific research.
Chinese Skullcap has a long list of traditional applications to its credit, including use as a detoxifying and soothing herb. It is valued here as a powerful and soothing antioxidant.
