Liver Rescue Version 5 30 VeganCaps You Only Have One Liver And You Can't Live Without It! Keeping the liver healthy is essential to good health. And most peoples livers are quite challenged and weakened with a toxic overload. One of the livers functions is to filter toxic materials from the blood, and if it is not functioning at optimum levels, your health is compromised. The healthier you live your life, the less stress there is on any organ, including the liver. It is our experience (using iridology and live blood cell analysis) that a large number of people have a significant level of liver stress. Usually the older and/or more toxic someone becomes, and the further away from a Vegan whole food diet emphasizing raw foods they go, the more liver stress there is. Nearly all medical drugs can AND DO cause liver damage! Continued liver damage leads to widespread body system failures and eventually death! And these toxic substances are supposed to heal us? Poor dietary choices such as excess protein (especially from sources that were once living, feeling creatures), alcohol, over the counter drugs/medications and anything else that is bad for us can cause liver stress as well. For more information on a healthful diet, Milk Thistle can help the liver because it nutritionally supports its functioning. It can help to increase the flow of bile (which emulsifies fats and is an avenue that the liver uses to dump poisons and wastes into). When the liver is toxic, it dumps toxins into your colon via bile. Then, if you colon is toxic, (which almost everyones is) these toxins get reabsorbed into the blood stream and much of them are sent back to the liver, and then back to the colon via bile, and then back to the liver, etc.
