One Herb That Helps Rebuild Liver Cells

The liver detoxer.

How often do we come across ads for detox- teas?.

But technically, ‘detoxing’ is the liver’s job. So as long as you take care of your liver, you do not really need a ‘detoxing’ tea. What if I told you that one particular herb boosts the production of new liver cells itself.

It is Milk thistle!

Milk thistles are widely used as a herbal supplement for liver issues. The white lines that strew across the green foliage give this plant its name. A milky white liquid pours out when the leaves are cut or crushed. It's also known as silymarin, which is one of the main components in these plant seeds.

Silymarin is an antioxidant as well as an anti-inflammatory. It helps the liver process the toxins out of the body by helping the liver function better.

For almost 2000 years, milk thistle has been an essential part of traditional medicine. As a result, this herb has earned the moniker "liver protector"!

Who should avoid Milk thistle?

Although milk thistles are beneficial healthwise, and there are little to no side effects of the herb, diabetic patients on medication should avoid taking milk thistles. Milk thistles might lead to hypoglycemia which is deficient blood sugar levels. So, if you have diabetes, you should use this herb with caution.

Also, if you are on blood thinners, you should avoid milk thistles. Apart from that, milk thistles are beneficial. Try milk thistle tea; it does wonders for your body and has nothing to do with dairy milk.

What does science say?

Milk thistle protects the liver from oxidative stress and free radical damage. Milk thistle has been shown in studies to help repair damaged cells. Silymarin also helps to protect the liver from the effects of alcohol and some prescription medications.

Many individuals assume that the liver detoxes itself and doesn't require any assistance. While this is a convincing argument, if the liver is not properly cared for, it will continue to incur harm.

Trust this helps,
