Support for the metabolism, liver and kidneys

Plants and fungi that are more than just weeds

In a month's time it will be that time again: Christmas. For most people, this also means enjoying Christmas sweets, good food and alcohol. 

During this time, our liver and kidneys have a lot to do to remove the excess toxins from our body.

Fortunately, Mother Nature has provided for us and given us some plants and mushrooms that support our metabolism, liver and kidneys. 

In Europe in particular, we have many plants that are often seen as annoying weeds and yet seem to survive everywhere. Nettle and dandelion seem practically indestructible and that should tell us something about these two plants.

In China and Japan, on the other hand, certain plants and medicinal mushrooms have been used to promote health for several thousand years. It can be seen that there are regional differences in which inhabitants are significantly more or less affected by certain diseases. Researchers attribute this to the increased intake of certain mushrooms that grow and are eaten in these regions.

Here are some plants and mushrooms that support the metabolism, liver and kidneys. Of course you can also order them from Plants2Market.
