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 do the work to protect the body from the onslaught of toxins.
In today's environment, virtually every individual-especially if they work around toxins, drink alcohol or have a history of kidney or liver problems- needs the added liver/kidney support that can come from Optimal Liver/Kidney.
When the liver and kidneys are not nutritionally supported or adequately cleansed, the body begins to store toxins in the tissues. These toxins can produce myriad symptoms, including fatigue, headaches, insomnia, depression, poor digestion, allergies and skin problems. Over time, the storage of these toxins may even lead to chronic illnesses such as cancer, arthritis, and Alzheimer's disease.
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. This simultaneous cleanse and fortification make Optimal Liver/Kidney the choice for many professionals.
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 will also aid gallbladder problems.
