    Thumbs up Protecting your liver - naturally

    A few ideas that mey help to protect your Liver.Found this on the web

    Here are a few natural supplements (and a little about each) that can greatly aid the liver and kindeys while on a cycle:

    1.Water: Pure water is the most important 1.5-2 gallons daily is a must while on a cycle!!!!!!!!

    2. Milk thistle:
    Effective dose 500mg-1000mg divided into equal doses twice daily
    Info
    This plant is native to the Mediterranean and grows wild throughout Europe, North America and Australia. Milk Thistle has been used in Europe as a remedy for liver problems for thousands of years. Its use was recorded in the first century (AD 23-79), noting that the plant was excellent for protecting the liver. Early Christian tradition dedicated milk thistle to Mary, calling it Marian thistle. In the 19th century the Eclectics used the herb for varicose veins, menstrual difficulty, and congestion in the liver, spleen and kidneys. Milk thistle has also been taken to increase breast-milk production, stimulate the secretion of bile, and as a treatment for depression.
    Milk thistle nutritionally supports the liver's ability to maintain normal liver function. It has shown positive effects in treating nearly every known form of liver disease, including cirrhosis, hepatitis, necroses, and liver damage due to drug and alcohol abuse. Milk thistle works due to its ability to inhibit the factors responsible for liver damage, coupled with the fact it stimulates production of new liver cells to replace old damaged ones.
    Milk thistle has been proven to protect the liver from damage. The detrimental effects of environmental toxins, alcohol, drugs and chemotherapy may be countered with this valuable herb. The active chemical component in the herb is silybin, which functions as an antioxidant and is one of the most potent liver protective agents known. Clinical trials have proven silybin to be effective in treating chronic liver diseases and in protecting the liver from toxic chemicals. An injection of silybin is a proven antidote for poisoning with the Deathcap mushroom (Amanita phalloides).

    Evening Primrose Oil
    this one works great when combined with Milk thistle
    Effective dose: 1000mg
    VALUABLE SOURCE OF OMEGA 6 FATTY ACIDS
    This natural vegetable oil is extracted from the invaluable Evening Primrose plant. This exceptional nutritional supplement provides linoleic acid, gamma-linoleic acid (GLA) and two Omega 6 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs).
    Your body requires significant amounts of these fatty acids for good health.
    HELPS FORM PROSTAGLANDINS
    These hormone-like compounds help reduce inflammation in the joints and also regulate blood vessels, salt and water balance, insulin secretion, nerve function and natural resistance. Evening Primrose Oil helps keep the skin, hair and nails healthy and protects the liver from toxins.

    3.Cranberry Extract:
    Effective Dose: 800mg-1600mg daily in 2-4 even doses
    Info:
    Historical or traditional use (may or may not be supported by scientific studies): Cranberry has been used to prevent kidney stones and “bladder gravel” as well as to remove toxins from the blood. Cranberry has long been recommended for persons with recurrent urinary tract infections (UTIs).
    Active constituents: Cranberry prevents E. coli, the most common cause of UTIs and recurrent UTIs, from adhering to the cells lining the wall of the bladder. This antiadherence action renders the bacteria harmless in the urinary tract.1 2 Recently, the proanthocyanidins in the berry were shown to have this antiadherence action.3 Cranberry has been shown to reduce bacteria levels in the urinary bladders of older women significantly better than placebo, which may help to prevent future infections.4 Other preliminary studies in humans suggest cranberry can help people with urostomies and enterocystoplasties to keep them clear of mucus buildup.

    Dandelion powder:
    Effective Dose 1000mg-3000mg
    Among herbalists dandelion is classified as a bitter herb with cool energy. It is valued mostly for its benefits for the urinary and glandular systems and as a liver and kidney tonic. Herbalists turn to dandelion for its ability to enhance the efficiency of the body's eliminative and detoxifying functions. It is a mild laxative and diuretic. It has traditionally been used as a tonic, blood purifier, for constipation, inflammatory skin conditions, joint pain, eczema and liver dysfunction, including liver conditions such as hepatitis and jaundice. As a tonic dandelion strengthens the kidneys and may be helpful for conditions such as water retention and high blood pressure. It does not deplete the body of potassium like many diuretics.

    It may help!!

    May want to add dessicated liver, which contains the P450 enzyme, responsible for many of the livers metabolic actions.
