The liver is a critical cleansing organ. The liver is responsible for creating Glutathione, the endogenously made antioxidant, which is important for fighting free radicals. Supporting liver function with ingredients like milk thistle may help the production of glutathione. The liver carries the most burden of detoxifying all of the environmental and internal toxins like alcohol, tobacco, prescription and non-prescription drugs, hormone laden meats, mercury in fish, fruits and vegetables that have been sprayed with pesticides, toxins in beauty products, the hormone disrupting chemicals found in synthetic fragrances, off-gassing furnishings and interior finishes, cleaning products, particulates and more. Without supporting the liver, potential toxic substances in our bodies can build up causing inflammation. The liver has to go through an intricate dual phase of detox (phase 1 and 2). Most cleanses only support phase 1. Cleansing the liver and the body on a cellular level can take years and most people tend to give up just as they’re about to have a healing breakthrough.
