Together, this herbal/mushroom blend creates an excellent detox to use short term or long term for prevention/maintenance:
Milk thistle- This is one of the best liver detox herbs. It acts as a liver tonic to protect and support the actions and repair of the liver. It supports both Phase 1 and Phase II of liver detox, thus making toxins less toxic in the body. It also protects the gallbladder and helps promote the flow of bile through the digestive tract. Milk thistle helps protect and repair the liver from damage caused by alcohol and environmental toxins.
Reishi- This is a medicinal mushroom that supports detox with the liver and kidneys. It supports the immune system and is high in minerals. It also acts as an adaptogen, which means it helps the body deal with stress and adrenal fatigue.
Nettles- Nettles is an excellent kidney supportive herb. It helps to increase the flow of urine and to alkalinize the kidneys. Using nettles is great to replace minerals, which is an important part of a detox.
