Liver Herbal Tincture
This Liver herbal tincture is made from high quality herbs and ingredients — some of which may have grown in my garden! If you are suffering from a sluggish liver and gallbladder, this tincture is for you! The herbs in this tincture help to gently detox your liver and gallbladder.
Milk Thistle: Research has shown that it promotes the regeneration of diseased liver cells and protects them against some poisons. This gives it a role in any chronic liver disease and especially those due to alcohol, drug, or dietary abuse. It will also aid in gall bladder problems.
Oregon Grape: Oregon grape is bitter, and can also be used for sluggish digestion, which might manifest as constipation, bloating, tongue coating, dental problems, gastric reflux (heart burn), and other GI symptoms. It can also be used for diarrhea-causing infections like Giardia. As a bitter herb, Oregon grape can also serve as a hepatic or liver supportive herb. Several studies support its use in regulating bile acid metabolism.
Burdock: This herb is most often associated with supporting the liver and skin. Burdock is a bitter digestive stimulant and also is a supporter of kidney function. Burdock can soothe inflammatory skin conditions like psoriasis, eczema, dandruff & acne. It is said to help purify the liver, lymph & blood.
Dandelion Root: This is a tonic bitter diuretic & detox herb that relieves liver & gall bladder congestion and works with the waters of the body (lymph, blood, urine). The root works with the lymph, supporting breasts, lactation, & swollen glands. Dandelion root also addresses liver “fire” & bile stagnation & thus a good remedy for sinus allergies, frustrated anger or extra fatty food. It can aid blood circulation & disorders, hemorrhoids, varicose veins, jaundice, skin eruptions, muscular rheumatism & more.
Yellow Dock: This herb is most indicated in chronic toxic conditions with debilitation, tendency to tissue stagnation (lymphadenopathy, ulcers, glandular enlargement), chronic sore throat, irritated dry cough. Yellow Dock is especially indicated in chronic skin conditions with G.I. complaints (especially psoriasis with constipation). It will benefit sluggish digestion, flatulence and liver problems.
Cleavers: One of the best remedies for swollen glands, cleavers can help with many lymphatic issues like edema or swelling. It combines well with urinary demulcents to relieve painful bladder & urinary irritations, stones & gravel, or other obstructions.
Herbal tinctures as medicine
Why are tinctures a preferred method of taking herbs? Because tinctures are potent! You don’t waste your money on pills that have been in the manufacturing process for months / years and lose potency! With an alcohol base, the tinctures pull out all the medicinal benefits of the plant, and preserve them naturally for you! They don’t lose potency over time.
With that being said, they are in a non-gmo vodka base. Which is fine for most people. But some people prefer to avoid alcohol in all forms. (even by avoiding real vanilla extract) and we support that choice. These tinctures aren’t for those people. Because of the potential for bacteria to reside in glycerine tinctures, we have decided to only offer vodka based tinctures. These herbs are edible and considered safe for most people. Some people may be allergic to certain herbs and should not use them. It is always best to consult your doctor before using any herbal product if you are taking prescription medications or have a health condition.
