The best herbs and spices for better liver health
Maintaining a strong and healthy liver benefits our bodies in a number of ways. It is the largest organ within the human body, and it supports over 500 functions, including bile production, protein digestion, and supplying the blood with glucose when needed.
An easy way to improve your liver health is with simple ingredient teas that include dried herbs like dandelion, or spices such as turmeric. Dandelion flower, specifically, helps to detoxify the liver with its antioxidant properties. Studies have shown that turmeric can aid in bile production, which also helps the detoxification process of the liver.
Citrus fruits, primarily the compounds in the peel of an orange could prevent non-alcoholic fatty liver disease or NAFLD. Everyday spices like black pepper, can increase urination and sweat which helps the liver rid the body of toxins more efficiently. Chicory root and cacao nibs are also great healthy liver resources.
Catalyst Tea Company’s handcrafted tea blends include many of the ingredients listed above, and today we’d like to introduce you and your liver to our Spicy Dandelion herbal tea blend. This special mixture of roasted dandelion root, ginger root, orange peel, and green cardamom has an earthy flavor. And it’s sure to set your well-loved liver on the right track!
