2. Milk Thistle Herb
This herb has an extensive history as a natural booster for liver health. Milk thistle contains the compounds silymarin and silybin, which both feature potent liver detoxifying properties. These lignans repair liver tissues, slow the growth of existing tumors and prevent new tumors from occurring in the liver.
Milk thistle is typically available in capsule format in health food stores around the world. However, we recommend that you search for a liquid milk thistle supplement. Liquid products are more efficient and have higher bioavailability in the body compared to powder forms of the supplement.
Milk thistle is an effective and efficient liver cleanser. For this reason, doctors will recommend that you use it 12-hours apart from any oral chemotherapy medications you are using. If you take the herb with your chemotherapy drugs, the potent lignans may absorb the beneficial compounds in the medicine before they find their way into your liver cells.
