Extra chocolate. Christmas cake. Those late-night parties with tempting drinks – who could resist?
This Christmas and New Year your liver will probably be working overtime to filter out toxins from your body and keep you thriving. Of course, it's difficult to live a completely toxin-free life – especially when you’re celebrating with family and friends. That's why a supporting your liver is so important, starting with a probiotic.
As the body's largest internal organ, the liver performs over 500 essential functions to keep you fit and healthy. It is a hub for removing toxins from the blood, filtering what you consume and converting food into energy. Since it is downstream of the gastrointestinal tract in the digestive process, research suggests that the composition of bacteria in the gut affects the functioning of the liver and that probiotics can protect your liver from drug and alcohol induced damage.
Our microbz detox (previously Bio-Live Liver) is a natural supplement designed to maintain healthy liver function. It's enriched with 15 families of live active cultures and fermented with 10 liver supporting herbs such as milk thistle, dandelion root and artichoke.
How does microbz detox help clear the liver of toxins?
Probiotics are beneficial microbes that cleanse the system and reduce the liver’s workload to help you get that fresh start. These bacteria live in the intestines where they improve digestive tract health and have positive health benefits for your liver. The most common groups of beneficial microbes in microbz detox are Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium. Each of these groups of microbes has many different species which in turn has many different strains. Bifidobacterium supports waste removal and sanitation occurring in your liver. Other bacteria create barriers that prevent toxins from passing from your intestines into your bloodstream then going into your liver.
And we add traditional herbs that are specially selected to boost liver function, in particular:
Milk thistle - Several scientific studies suggest that ingredients in milk thistle (especially a flavonoid called silymarin) protect the liver from toxins. Silymarin has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.
Dandelion leaf and root – You may think of it as a stubborn lawn weed, but in fact it is a highly nutritious plant, an excellent source of vitamins and antioxidants.
Artichoke – is loaded with powerful nutrients and antioxidants It also increases the production of bile, which helps remove harmful toxins from your liver. One trial in 90 people with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease revealed that consuming 600 milligrams (mg) of artichoke extract daily for 2 months led to improved liver function.
The billions of beneficial microbes in microbz detox will deliver these and other ingredients to help your liver stay strong over the holiday season.
We wish you a very happy Christmas time.
