What each ingredient does?
Celery. Animal studies suggest that celery seed extracts may help reduce blood pressure and cholesterol, as well as protect the liver from damaging substances like Tylenol (Acetaminophen).
Also, it has diuretic properties, which helps remove toxins from the body.
Cabbage. The active compounds found in cabbage (glucoraphanin) fixes the imbalances in lipids, liver enzymes, and renal osmolytes caused by a cholesterol-rich diet.
Also, it prevents inflammation and cell death within the liver to speed healing of liver injury
Ginger. Ginger has positive effects on biomarkers of liver injury in patients suffering from Nonalcoholic Fatty Liver Disease.
Also, it treated fat deposits in the liver to reverse the underlying cause of the condition.
Lemon. Lemon and lemon peel are rich in naringenin, hesperidin, and eriocitrin, which protect the liver against inflammation and oxidative stress. Also, hesperidin reduces cholesterol levels in the liver and blood.
Pear. Pears are rich in pectin, which can regress gallstones by up to 52 percent when compared to a placebo.
The gallbladder, where gallstones occur, stores bile produced by the liver. When it is filled with stones, the liver can experience a backup of bile, which causes injury and stress.
Mint. People suffering from cirrhosis (liver scarring) typically have a problem with bruising or bleeding caused by enlarged veins.
The high levels of vitamin K, which mint contains can help manage these symptoms.
Also, peppermint lowers the effect of immobilization stress on liver enzymes.
