"Give the body what it needs to produce energy... Only then can you see what herbal medicines really do!"


For centuries, herbal medicine prevented diseases and healed chronic health issues. Over 80% of the world relies on traditional herbal care, per the World Health Organization. Today, more healthcare practitioners are recommending professional-grade herbal remedies as a necessary dietary supplement for disease prevention and as alternative/complementary medicine. (1) (2)

Let’s explore Burdock Root, Milk Thistle, and Dandelion’s healing properties. These herbs promote liver health, a key organ for digestion, metabolism, and growth. Yet, modern stress, pesticides, and processed foods challenge it.

Your liver filters about 540 gallons of blood daily, cleaning it around 409 times daily! As your largest internal organ, it handles over 500 vital functions. It manages amino acids, clotting, fights infections, stores nutrients, removes glucose, makes bile, and is the only regenerative organ in the body. (3)

Boost the healing potential of each herb, promote energy production and vitality, and achieve balanced healing through the use of professional multivitamins, high-quality supplements, and a plant-based diet.

Milk Thistle is part of the Asteraceae family and hails from Southern Europe, the Middle East, and Northern Africa. It’s linked with protection and strength, boasting a history of over 2,000 years. It’s celebrated for its liver-revitalizing abilities. (4)

Milk Thistle has been used for various health issues, like liver problems gallbladder disorders, and even promoting milk production for breastfeeding. Native Americans relied on it for liver, kidney, and skin conditions. In the past, it was known to help with emotional well-being and liver health. (5)Liver disease disrupts blood filtration and can lead to harmful substances building up. Unbalanced blood pH affects digestion, immunity, nerves, and heart health. (6)

Silymarin, extracted from milk thistle seeds, is packed with antioxidants like flavonolignans. These support the liver, combat inflammation, and even have potential anti-cancer properties. The plant also contains fatty acids and phytosterols that aid liver fat metabolism and lower blood triglycerides. (7)

Global research led the German Commission E to endorse milk thistle seeds and extracts for supporting cirrhosis and chronic liver issues. (8) This herb aids Cytochrome P450 in liver detoxification. For better results, consider using it with complementary herbs like Burdock Root. (9)

BURDOCK ROOT (Arctium Lappa)

Family:  Asteraceae

Burdock root is a versatile herb with bitter, sweet, and cooling properties. Its bitterness helps balance stomach pH and boosts digestive enzymes. It contains essential nutrients like vitamin C, calcium, magnesium, and iron. The root also has inulin, a starch that aids carbohydrate metabolism. Acting as a blood purifier, burdock clears congestion in circulation, lymph, respiration, and urine, making it an excellent detoxifier.

It was also widely utilized by Native Americans for various skin conditions. Burdock is particularly valuable for liver health, skin, and arthritis. It supports elimination by aiding kidneys, lymph nodes, colon, and skin. Its known ability to remove toxins from the blood contributes to hormonal balance.

Burdock root has been used for liver disease, bladder infections, joint pain, acne, and more. Combining it with herbs like milk thistle can enhance their effects, as seen in studies.
