Liver Kidney formula nourishes, supports and rejuvenates both the liver and the kidneys. These two vital organs work together as a powerful detoxification team, reducing toxicity, cleansing the blood, and regulating fat metabolism. Liver Kidney formula protects the body from free radical damage and stress, and promotes normal, healthy liver and kidney function.
From Haiti to Fiji and all throughout India, Bhumyamalaki has been used for millennia to support liver and kidney health while supporting a myriad of other aspects of wellness. Punarnava has a “fountain of youth” reputation in it, in fact its very name means that. And Katuki is considered by many of the best herbalists to be the best liver herb they know, as it directly improves liver function and also increases innate liver allies like glutathione and superoxide dismatase. Where many herbs depend on polyphenols and antioxidants, these herbs can offer that as well as many potent alkaloids which significantly “ups the ante.”
