Milk Thistle

Your liver is one
incredibly important organ. Not only does it clean your blood and
essentially serve as a checkpoint for everything that enters our body,
but it also stores glycogen (used for energy) and other minerals, and
even helps in clotting your blood if you are bleeding. With so many
roles that are required to keep your body functioning properly it is
important to take care of your liver. One way to do so may be to add a
supplement called Milk Thistle. Milk Thistle’s main ingredient is known
as Silymarin, which has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant
properties. It is thought to not only remove harmful toxins from the
liver but potentially block these toxins as well. Along with great liver
benefits, Milk Thistle may help lower cholesterol and even regulate
blood sugar levels. Typically dosage is 140mg taken 3 times a day. You
can find Milk Thistle at your local health foods store and even some
grocery stores. You only get 1 liver so why not take good care of it?!
