DANDELION & THE LIVER

Dandelion (Taraxacum officinale) is a common meadow herb of the Asteraceae or sunflower family. It's rich in vitamins A, B complex, C and D, minerals including iron, potassium and zinc, and has been used for centuries in traditional Native American and Chinese medicine.

However, this common weed we call dandelion is one of nature’s most healing herbs, known to help remove harmful toxins from the liver. 

Taraxin is the most active compounds found in dandelion, helping to stimulate bile production in the liver. Bile is a digestive fluid that helps break fats into fatty acids that the body can absorb.

"HOWEVER, WHEN THE LIVER IS NOT FUNCTIONING WELL,

IT IS UNABLE ADEQUATELY PRODUCE BILE

AND ALSO REMOVE HARMFUL TOXINS." 

Your liver produces bile from a byproduct of the breakdown of red blood cells (bilirubin). Promoting the production and flow of bile helps your digestive system function optimally, as well as helping to keep cholesterol levels low.

However, when the liver is not functioning well, it is unable adequately produce bile and also remove harmful toxins. This is important, as when the body is in this state, it can become more acidic, with poor health and illnesses growing in an acidic environment. 

Another good reason why Dr. Laubscher included just enough of this special nutrient-rich ingredient in THE SUPER ELIXIR Nourishing Protein.
