Liver Blood Cleansing Support
The liver is the primary detoxification organ in the body. The liver can neutralize many toxins, including many xenobiotics. Xenobiotics are environmental toxins that have been released into the environment as a by-product of modern civilization – primarily from industry and from artificial foods and drugs that enter our environment in water and air. Liver toxicity has undoubtedly always been a factor in aging and ill-health. But we are now exposed to thousands upon thousands of weird chemicals that nature did not really plan on. Fortunately, the human body is prepared to destroy some of them. The body can also store toxins away in the liver. Even when some very harmful xenobiotics are somewhat broken down, the pieces left over can still be toxin, if somewhat less so. These are often stored in the live as well. Chinese herbalism features many great herbs and herbal formulations that help detoxify the liver, effectively and safely. In fact, there are more liver detoxification formulas than any other kind of formula in Chinese herbalism. At Dragon Herbs, we feature two categories of herbs and formulations that help detoxify the liver: tonics and Bupleurum-based formulations.
Tonic Herbs for Liver Detoxification
Among the top tonic herbs discovered and used in Chinese herbalism, many benefit the liver. The most famous and important liver tonic herbs that help detoxify the liver are:
- White Peony root
- Polyrhachis Ant
Schizandra eeTee® - Schizandra keeps the blood clear of toxins even when they are being eliminated from the liver. The technology used to produce Schizandra eeTee® is the most advanced extraction method in the world, and thus costs more. Schizandra eeTee® maintains the same chemical profile as the raw herb straight from the vine – it is like eating the fresh fruit in a Changbai Mountain forest.
Schizandra Drops - Schizandra Drops may be the best way to use Schizandra to directly detoxify the liver. It contains about 30% alcohol. Alcohol is tropic to the liver – it goes there quickly, carrying the Schizandra molecules with it. The very small amount of alcohol will do no harm to the liver.
Goji and Schizandra Drops - Both Goji and Schizandra constituents migrate to the liver automatically by their very nature. This is a top-level formula for daily use to keep the liver and blood clean on an ongoing basis.
Ron Teeguarden’s Liver Tonic - This formulation contains 6 of the greatest tonic herbs, and all are considered completely safe and non-toxic. All 6 herbs in this formulation support the body’s natural ability to regulate the liver functions while supporting the tissues of the liver. This formula can be used both as a liver tonic and as a general tonic. It may be used throughout one’s lifetime. This formulation does not result in rapid detoxification. Over time, the liver becomes more efficient at self-cleaning.
Cellular Detox Formulation - This classic formula is also called “Bupleurum and Rehmannia Combination.” It is very specifically designed to detoxify the blood. It also helps detoxify the liver and helps clear stagnant lymph glands. It is considered a remedial formulation, but it may be used for several months to restore blood purity. Thereafter, I can be consumed in lower doses or one week per month.
Super Ant - Manchurian mountain Polyrhachis Ant (Mountain Ant) is a superb liver detoxifier and tonic. A 2018 study has shown that an active fraction from Polyrhachis Ant can significantly decreased the level of serum uric acid, serum and hepatic xanthine oxidase, serum creatinine, blood urea nitrogen, and malondialdehyde (MDA) as well as increased super oxide dismutase (SOD). Also, a unique set of aldehyde compounds, such as geranicaldehyde, found in Mountain Ant has been demonstrated to have a stronger tonic action than ginseng. These aldehydes compounds play a key role in liver and blood detoxification.
