The liver and kidneys act as the body’s filtration system-helping rid the body of toxins as well as performing other necessary functions. In fact, the liver has over 600 functions it performs.
These organs can only function optimally when they are kept clean and provided with certain nutrients. In other words, the body’s filtration system can be compared to a water filter. When the filter is clogged with debris (toxins) it is unable to do the work of keeping fresh, clean water flowing through the filter. Similarly, when the liver and kidneys are clogged with toxins, they can’t protect the body from the onslaught of toxins.
When the liver and kidneys are not nutritionally supported or adequately cleansed, the body begins to store toxins in tissues. These toxins can produce myriad symptoms, including fatigue, headaches, insomnia, depression, poor digestion, allergies and skin problems.
The key to Optimal Liver • Kidney’s success is its ability to cleanse and fortify these organs at the same time without the side effects often associated when these organs are cleansed.

Milk Thistle is an herb that has been used for centuries as a natural remedy for diseases of the liver and bile duct. The active ingredients have been reported to work as antioxidants, scavenging free radicals and inhibiting lipid peroxidation. There are two main areas in which this herb is used. Research has shown that it promotes the regeneration of diseased liver cells and protects them against some poisons. This exciting find gives milk thistle a role in any chronic liver disease and especially those due to alcohol, drug or dietary abuse. It also aids gallbladder problems.
Barberry is an excellent remedy for correcting liver function and promoting the flow of bile. Barberry is suggested when there is an inflammation of the gallbladder or the presence of gallstones. When jaundice occurs due to a congested state of the liver, barberry is also suggested.
Dandelion Root is an example of how different parts of a plant can have a markedly different medicinal use. Dandelion root is a very powerful diuretic. With dandelion, we have one of the best natural sources of potassium. It makes an ideally balanced diuretic that may be safely used wherever such an action is needed, including water retention. The root is one of the most widely applicable, gentle tonics for liver function.
