Shaklee DTX Complex
DTX Complex is uniquely formulated with milk thistle seed extract, reishi mushroom, Schizandra chinensis, dandelion, turmeric, and artichoke.
According to Shaklee, this product helps to:
Maintain bile flow, an integral part of digestion
Protect liver from toxins
But frankly, that is just being a little modest. This product contains some of my favorite herbs I’ve experienced as an acupuncturist- in combination!
Milk Thistle is the core ingredient for Liver DTX. Silymarin is the main active ingredient in milk thistle, which is both an anti-inflammatory and an antioxidant. It has been used for thousands of years to support liver function and treat liver and gallbladder disease.
Reishi is a powerhouse mushroom used to tonify the qi and help the body adapt to stresses (physical, mental, and environmental) Scientific research has shown that reishi improves the cardiovascular system by lowering bad LDL cholesterol and blood pressure, and by improving blood circulation.
And of course, turmeric, is the ultimate ayurvedic herb. Turmeric and its key component, curcumin, is one of the most researched herbs out there, due to its wonderful effectiveness. Turmeric has anti-inflammatory, anti-cancer, and anti-oxidative properties. It is a safe effective food to promote a healthy life.
Lets keep going:
Artichoke extract may play a role in reducing cholesterol levels in individuals with elevated cholesterol levels. It has been suggested that Artichoke may work as an antioxidant to reduce liver damage.
Schizandra has been used in traditional medicine as an adaptogen for energy, immune support, and various conditions involving the respiratory, endocrine, and nervous system. It has been suggested that Schisandra may also benefit liver health. Schizandra is my favorite chinese herb and is used to tonify the heart and kidney and calm the shen.
And last but not least, dandelion has traditionally been used for loss of appetite, constipation, bloating, upper abdominal pain, and infections as well as treating problems in the liver, kidney and spleen.
All in all, Shaklee’s Liver DTX is bringing it when it comes to supporting health and detoxification.
