Herbal Support for Kidney and Gallbladder
dealing with the elimination of waste and toxic substances from the
body, the kidneys, liver and gallbladder can, over time, become
overburdened. Planetary Herbals offers you Stone Free, a unique blend of
turmeric root, coin-leaf desmodium, lysimachia, dandelion root extract,
ginger root, lemon balm leaf, marshmallow root, parsley root, dandelion
root, and licorice root. These herbs have been used historically to
support the kidneys, liver and gallbladder and promote healthy organ
This comprehensive formula is twofold - it aids normal
fluid elimination and bile production and assists with the body's
natural cleansing processes. Primarily detoxifying botanicals, the herbs
in Stone Free act to flush, cleanse and detoxify, ridding the body of
mineral and other waste and fat-soluble toxins.
Purifying Support for the Kidneys
kidney function involves the filtration of waste products (including
various minerals) from the blood, and the excretion of liquid waste
through the urine. Primary kidney supporting herbs - such as parsley
root, and marshmallow root - have been used to aid normal fluid
elimination and general genitourinary health, thereby helping to ensure
the smooth passage of urinary waste through the urinary tract.
desmodium and lysimachia's flushing and cleansing action helps to rid
the body of mineral waste. Classified as a tonic, parsley root
stimulates and improves the eliminative function of the kidneys and
assists in the balance of fluids in the body. Marshmallow root, in
particular, is rich in mucilage; its coating action is known to soothe,
moisten, and protect the genitourinary tract.
Bitter Substances and the Normal Flow of Bile
of the liver's main methods of detoxification is in the manufacture and
secretion of bile - a carrying agent for the elimination of toxic
substances from the body. Stored in the gallbladder and then released
into the small intestine, bile also serves in the digestion of fatty
acids and absorption of fat-soluble nutrients; it emulsifies fats, and
therefore is essential in the proper health of the gallbladder. However,
if bile is not properly metabolized, it can mix with excess minerals,
affecting its normal excretion functions.
Herbs that support
liver and gallbladder health have been used for centuries in traditional
herbology. Known as cholagogues, they stimulate the production of bile,
or promote the discharge of bile into the duodenum, and also flush and
detoxify the gallbladder; this in turn helps to emulsify fat deposit
build-up common with high fat, low fiber diets.
and turmeric, two such cholagogues, are bitter substances that support
digestion and help facilitate the body's normal flow of bile. In
addition, turmeric's cleansing action helps to detoxify the liver.
Licorice root, another cholagogue, is a soothing lubricant that assists
the body's natural cleansing processes and the excretion of toxins and
waste. Ginger root and lemon balm leaf further aid in digestion and
To support liver
and gallbladder health avoids the excessive consumption of saturated
fats and supplement with Planetary Herbals Digestive Grape Bitters. For

consumption of foods high in oxalates or oxalic acid, such as coffee,
chocolate, cocoa, tea, rhubarb, spinach, and other plant foods.
