As I mentioned in my last post on Detoxing, you need to be cautious before going on a detoxification program. Check with your doctor first, especially if you are overweight, if you are on any type of medication, if you have blood sugar problems or any other health problems. The information I provide here if for reference only ... always check with your doctor if you have questions or concerns.
At Henry’s, we have many products that can assist the liver with the detoxifying process.
One of my personal favorite products for detox is milk thistle (silybum marainum), which helps to protect the liver from damage and enhances the detoxification process. Some other herbs that assist the body with the cleansing process are:
Burdock: a gentle liver and blood cleanser*
Yellow Dock: improves absorption*
Dandelion: a cleansing herb for toxic skin conditions, mild diuretic*
Red Root: assists the lymph glands*
Ginger: increases circulation, helps digestion*
