Love Your Liver Herbal Tincture

Urban dwellers should consider an herbal liver tincture as part of their daily routine. When living in an environment where air quality, pollutants, and water quality are more of a daily challenge, it’s vital to ensure that your liver is functioning in tip-top shape. The liver carries over 500 functions in the body and is considered the “master filter,” responsible for processing and filtering the blood in addition to helping detoxify chemicals from the body (Bhatia, et al., 2014).

All four herbs in this formula (burdock (Arctium lappa) root, dandelion (Taraxacum officinale) root, milk thistle (Silybum marianum) seed, and reishi (Ganoderma lucidum) mushroom) work to protect and restore the liver while helping promote healthy and natural liver detoxification (Holmes, 1989).

Living in an urban environment (and in certain rural areas as well) can become more taxing on the liver through frequent exposure to chemicals in the air and water, in addition to other pollutants the liver helps filter. Adding a simple, daily liver-supportive herbal tincture formula is an easy way to help promote healthy liver function amidst all of the additional challenges it faces in an urban environment. Yield: 60 ml


10 ml dandelion (Taraxacum officinale) root tincture
20 ml burdock (Arctium lappa) root tincture
20 ml milk thistle (Silybum marianum) seed tincture
10 ml reishi (Ganoderma lucidum) mushroom tincture

  • Combine all of the tinctures into a 2-ounce glass dropper bottle. 
  • Shake the dropper bottle lightly to combine.
  • Enjoy 30 drops 2 times per day.
