Where there is a history of regular intake of foods, beverages, and medications that are burdensome to the liver, I often recommend taking organic milk thistle tea once daily to support optimal liver function.
Regular intake of acetaminophen, alcohol, and sugary foods are common causes of liver dysfunction, as marked by elevated liver enzymes (AST and ALT) on a routine blood test, as well as subjective symptoms of a stressed liver, such as:
- General skin itchiness
- Unexplained fatigue
- Ill-defined pain in the upper right quadrant of the abdomen
- A yellowish tinge to the eyes
Milk thistle (Silybum marianum) is a plant that is native to the Mediterranean region - it's named for the milky white sap that is found in its stem and leaves.
Milk thistle has long been used to support liver health, with many studies conducted in Europe, some up to five years long, showing that people with cirrhosis (fibrosis and scarring of liver tissue) experience improved liver function and decreased mortality when taking milk thistle.

Please note that we use a set shipping table to calculate shipping fees plus processing costs at our warehouse. For example, for all deliveries in the continental United States, the set fee for all orders up to $200 is $12, which covers UPS Ground plus packaging and labor costs with our warehouse. We understand that for smaller items like a box of one of our organic teas, the shipping cost is high. We suggest ordering multiple items or waiting until you can use more than one of the items at our catalogue to reduce the per-item shipping cost. Thank you for understanding that we don't bake shipping costs into higher product prices; we prefer to have a modest profit margin on our products to maintain fiscal viability, and be transparent about our shipping costs.
