The liver is the primary organ responsible for expelling and breaking down toxins entering the body as well as playing a vital role in hormone balance particularly in the removal of excess hormones such as estrogen.
Dandelion root stimulates the liver and is often used by herbalists to help fight fatty liver disease, cirrhosis, estrogen dominance, and even acne. Peppermint stimulates bile flow and relaxes bile ducts, helping to break down fats. It also helps reduce bad cholesterol, which makes the liver’s job of filtering toxins easier. Peppermint also inhibits blockages in the kidney and gallbladder and calms the stomach for optimal digestion.
