The Benefits of Milk Thistle on Your Liver

Have you noticed the increased interest in liver health these days? There are so many liver detox plans/diets. And of course there are many views about these detox plans. One of the greatest issues surrounding liver health is fatty liver disease.

What is fatty liver disease and who has it?

Simply stated, fatty liver disease happens when your liver stores fat.  Who has it?  Many people, predominantly those in middle age, though we are seeing a trend growing with young children, due of course, to poor diet.  Fatty liver disease should not be confused with alcoholic fatty liver, which is induced with too much alcohol intake and results in a far more serious fatty liver disease.

Treating Liver Disease with Milk Thistle

Fatty liver disease is not necessarily curable, but it can be treated. One of the most simple things you can do is diet alteration, removing sugar and also flour.  Another simple step is including Milk Thistle in your diet. Milk Thistle can be purchased in pill or liquid form. The liquid form tends to be the most advantageous to take. You should take it once daily, preferably at night before bedtime, in water.  If you want to, you can also take it in the morning.  Remember to follow the directions on your bottle. Taking Milk Thistle to help the liver has been a popular method for the last 2,000 years. Indeed, in various studies, scientists have discovered that Milk Thistle has the ability to help the liver regenerate healthy tissue. It also has been shown to remove toxins from the liver.

So, what are you waiting for? Go get a bottle of Milk Thistle and give your liver a healthy treat!
