The summer social season is here and as you make plans for cocktails, coffees and other catch-ups, spare a thought for your liver.
While you’re out drinking the wine and eating those deep-fried bar snacks you can’t resist, your liver is on clean-up duty, working behind the scenes to help your body process it all.
How does the liver function?
Think of it as your biological waste-management system, if you will. Among the 500-plus functions it performs everyday, your liver helps process every single substance that comes into your body.
This includes food, alcohol and medicines, plus any chemicals that are absorbed through your skin or even from the air. It clears toxins from the blood and produces bile, which breaks down and carries away waste and fats during the digestion process.
When your liver is performing optimally, you’ll probably notice it in more energy; healthier looking skin; bright, clear eyes; and an all-round feeling of better health.
Show your liver some love with BYHEALTH
As the largest – and one of the hardest working – organs in your body, your liver deserves to be treated well. Eating a healthy, well-balanced diet; maintaining a healthy weight; and limiting alcohol and other drugs are all good ways to keep your liver ticking along in a healthy and supported way.
Now scientists are shining the spotlight on one of nature’s wonders: the seed associated with the milky leaf called Milk Thistle also known as Silybum marianum.
Amongst a myriad of health properties, the antioxidant-rich Milk Thistle has been shown to support a healthy liver function. This flowering herb has been used in traditional medicines for thousands of years. These days, it’s used in western herbal medicine to maintain and support liver health.
Milk Thistle from BYHEALTH
The bestselling Milk Thistle supplement that’s formulated by vitamin company BYHEALTH is no exception. It also has other noteworthy features.
A new name to know
BYHEALTH is still fairly under the radar here in Australia, but the China-based business is actually the largest vitamin and dietary supplements (VDS) company in the world.
It has a team of more than 500 scientists working on the research and development of new and cutting-edge products. And it regularly partners with some of the world’s leading scientific minds, like Nobel Prize winner Jeffrey C. Hall, and top institutions, including the Rowett Institute at the University of Aberdeen in Scotland; BASF in Germany and the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS).
The company is also committed to transparency and traceability. For example, BYHEALTH’s Chinese headquarters are also home to a dedicated Transparent Manufacturing Factory and Nutrition Exploratorium, where visitors are invited to walk through and view the entire manufacturing process.
That means visitors can see everything from raw materials in the warehouse, to the quality control and laboratory tests during manufacturing and the finished products at the end of the line.
With initiatives like these – and products like its bestselling Milk Thistle – we can expect to hear more about BYHEALTH in the coming months.
