Your liver is amazing! If it gets damaged, it can regrow healthy cells, but it takes time. Continued use of harmful drugs and alcohol, or eating poorly can scar your liver. It can slow healing, or your liver may not heal at all. If liver damage results in cirrhosis, the damage is not reversible. As a result, even a liver cleanse won’t heal it. Better to help your liver to stay healthy.
Your liver performs more than 500 different functions. It detoxifies and neutralizes toxins. So what can you do to improve your health and support your healthy liver function?

Milk Thistle and Turmeric
Milk Thistle or silymarin is a plant related to daisies and ragweed. For years, people have used it to treat the liver for cirrhosis, jaundice, and hepatitis.
It may not treat disease caused by alcohol abuse, autoimmune disease, or viruses. But it may prevent their damaging effects. Silymarin has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory power, and increases cell vitality.
Milk thistle targets oxidative stress and liver fat accumulation. As a result, it slows non-alcoholic fatty liver disease. More information
