Plan your Spring Detox with Chai Hu

Herb Chai Hu has stood the test of time, having been used in Chinese Medicine for its detoxification abilities for over 2,000 years!

If you know your Liver could do with a little Spring Clean, look no further than a herbal formula containing Chai Hu (Bupleurum) available now at Northside Health.

Liver health is such a vital part of our well-being. It is the organ most responsible for converting nutrients and eliminating toxins from our systems. It also produces bile, which is the body uses to utilise fats and fat soluble vitamins. When we help out our liver, our digestion and energy levels improve markedly too.

There is so much in our external and internal environments that take a toll on the Liver; pollution, medications, alcohol, processed foods and stress, just to name a few. In Chinese Medicine, Liver Qi stagnation (stuck energy) is a key reason why depression, anger and stress arise. This is especially true in terms of PMS (premenstrual syndrome). Chai Hu in a herbal formula can effectively allow for free flow of Qi, easing the load on the liver and creating a less emotionally intense time leading up to menstruation.
