Love Yr Liver: Herbal Iron and Mineral Syrup
This delicious blend of roots and leaves is a potent and easily absorbable source of bio-chelated iron, as well as many other vitamins and minerals. It is also a wonderful support for your liver. As our body’s master detoxifier and processor of all we ingest, the liver is a very important organ to keep in balance. When the liver is congested or stagnated, it can’t process toxins and cleanse the blood, meaning toxins attempt to leave through the skin (resulting in acne, psoriasis, excema) or end up causing inflammation and other complications in the body. The liver also manufactures many of the building blocks needed for hormone production and helps regulate hormone activity. So, when addressing any imbalance, it is helpful to also support the liver.
You can take up to 6 Tbsp daily if you know you are iron or mineral deficient or need extra liver support. I recommend starting with 2 Tbsp and see how you feel. If you experience loose bowels, reduce the dose and gradually increase it over time.
