What do the Total Detox assets do?
Milk thistle is used in phytotherapy for the protection of the liver. It also supports the liver functions.

Silymarin, extracted in 1968, is considered the active substance responsible for the therapeutic effects of this plant.
Artichoke is used in phytotherapy to help relieve digestive problems and stimulate the secretion of bile. Artichoke has been used for its therapeutic virtues since Antiquity. The active ingredient is cynarin, a substance from the polyphenol family.

In China, Idia, Europe and North America (Amerindians), burdock is often used as a medicinal plant for all sorts of problems; respiratory infections, joint pain, cancerous tumors, etc. Traditionally, Herbalists used burdock to “purify” the body from impurities that might cause illness.
Boldo is used in phytotherapy to soothe difficult digestion, and to stimulate it. Archeological studies carried out in Chili have shown that culinary and medicinal use of boldo leaves goes as far back as 12 500 years.
