“Holiday Detox” Could REVIVE Your Liver

It’s pretty easy to overindulge during the holidays.

Whether it’s the trays of snacks and appetizers you find irresistible, or the dessert table, one way or another, you soon find yourself stuffed to the gills… and maybe wishing you’d made better choices.

And as a result, it leaves not just you, but also your liver, exhausted.

Thankfully, there’s an easy way to help REVIVE your liver… it’s all thanks to this natural “holiday detox.”

You may have never heard of tartary buckwheat liquor, but it’s a famous drink used in Chinese medicine.

Previously, scientists discovered it has powerful antibacterial and antioxidant properties.

And now they’ve found that it could help REVIVE your liver.

In a recent study, researchers found that buckwheat liquor jumpstarts autophagy.

You see, in order for your cells to be healthy, they must go through a specific life cycle. They grow, live, and then die – to be replaced by other cells.

Your body has a way to clean up those dead cells, called autophagy (or programmed cell death).

Researchers understand that autophagy plays an essential role, not only in health, but in many diseases, including cancers, Alzheimer’s, heart disease, and more…

Which is why they’re CONSTANTLY looking for ways to encourage the process.

To test the effects of buckwheat liquor on autophagy, they added an extract of it to skin and liver cells.

And it worked!

The buckwheat liquor extract encouraged the growth of autophagasomes, the cells that kickstart autophagy, and began to revitalize both the skin and liver cells.

This means that we potentially have an aid to CLEAR OUT all the “junk” in our bodies and remove all the old, useless cells.

I’m guessing you probably don’t have any tartary buckwheat liquor hanging around your house, but don’t worry… you can STILL get all the benefits without going all the way to China.

First, you can find tartary buckwheat as a tea online here.

But there’s something else… the researchers also found that quercetin is the active ingredient in the buckwheat liquor.

Interestingly, quercetin is one of the most common flavonoids found in food.

There are high levels of quercetin in tea, wine, kale, broccoli, and olive oil. You can also find quercetin as a supplement.
