For women (actually for all), the health of the liver is particularly important because it is tasked with breaking down and eliminates excess level of hormones such as estrogen, corticosteroids (stress hormones; that’s why stress can make things worse), and other steroids.
A ‘congested’ liver as a result of chronic stress, strong emotions, poor diet, poor sleep etc. is less able to deal with the peak levels of sex hormones, especially from ovulation through onset of menses.
Discomforts such as water retention, acne on chin area, swollen breast, cramps, mood swings, headache, migraine, irritability, depression etc. are associated with this liver imbalance.
My herbal formula Phyto-nzyme is designed with the above in mind, besides being a digestive aid.
You take 5ml mix with 20ml water and drink at least 15 minutes before each meal. It also helps to increase stomach acid, thereby improves absorption of nutrients (such as calcium etc.) and prevent unfriendly bacteria such as helicobacter pylori (associated with stomach ulcer and cancer).
