Q: I re­ally let my­self in­dulge this win­ter, and I’m start­ing to feel the ef­fects. I would love to do a green juice cleanse to re­set my liver for spring, but my sched­ule is so packed right now that I can’t risk be­ing tired and cranky for a few days. Could a sup­ple­ment help in­stead?

A: You’re smart to want to give your liver a help­ing hand. Ex­po­sure to en­vi­ron­men­tal tox­ins, pro­cessed car­bo­hy­drates and sugar can dam­age liver cells and im­pede the or­gan’s abil­ity to burn fat and flush tox­ins ef­fi­ciently.

For­tu­nately, sup­ple­ment­ing with

750 mg of milk this­tle (like Life Ex­ten­sion Euro­pean Milk This­tle, LEF.com/ffw) twice daily can help give the or­gan a boost if you don’t have time to de­tox. This plant ex­tract con­tains a group of pow­er­ful an­tiox­i­dants (called sily­marins) that heal and re­pair dam­aged liver cells, neu­tral­ize built-up tox­ins and heavy me­tals, and spur the growth of new liver cells. Plus, a study in the jour­nal Planta Med­ica found that milk this­tle in­creases the body’s lev­els of key detox­i­fi­ca­tion en­zymes by 35 per­cent. For best re­sults, con­tinue tak­ing for up to a month un­til you feel fully re­freshed and recharged.
