Your liver works around the clock to cleanse and detoxify your body while performing vital functions for overall wellbeing. The liver also contributes to digestive function, helping convert nutrients so the body can use them, breaking down fat, and removing metabolic by-products. Experts estimate that the liver works to cleanse your blood at a rate of 1.5 quarts per minute!
The health of your liver and its detoxification pathways are at the core of total wellness. That’s why we created Swanson Pure Liver & Detox, featuring a trio of clinically proven herbal ingredients for liver health—milk thistle extract, artichoke extract and TrueBroc® broccoli extract—and here’s how they work to help keep your liver healthy.
Milk thistle has a long history of traditional use as a liver health tonic, and numerous scientific studies have confirmed its benefits. Milk thistle supports healthy liver function, liver cell production and cholesterol metabolism for individuals with blood lipid levels already within the normal range. The benefits of milk thistle are most often attributed to silymarin, a liver-supporting compound within milk thistle that may also guard against depletion of glutathione, a molecule made in the liver that provides important antioxidant benefits and stimulates immune health.
While often mistaken for a vegetable, artichokes are actually a thistle too—in the same plant family as milk thistle. And these two ingredients provide complementary liver health benefits. Artichoke extract helps activate the liver to promote healthy digestion and cleansing while reinforcing antioxidant activity.
Broccoli extract contains a high amount of glucoraphanin, a beneficial compound with many health applications and potent cellular-defending power. In the liver, broccoli extract enhances the liver’s detoxification capacity and acts as an antioxidant. Clinical studies indicate that the patented form of broccoli extract used in this formula, TrueBroc® increases the activity of enzymes that neutralize free radicals and reinforces the body’s natural responses to oxidative stress.
Clinical research on ingredients within this product indicates that it may take 4-6 weeks of consistent use to gain liver health benefits. Results may vary and benefits are best seen with consistent use.
