Supplements to Assist with Sauna Detoxification

I wrote here on the health benefits of sauna in general, and here on infrared vs dry heat saunas.

Sauna, therefore, is helpful for [...]

How the Liver Detoxifies

Your liver is quite the multi-tasker. Its most important job is to detoxify foreign chemicals, but it also does a number of other important tasks, including regulating blood sugar levels, making bile to help digest fats, making your blood’s carrier proteins and clotting factors, acting as a repository for a [...]
