Your liver and the festive season
One of the largest and most important organs of the body. It acts like a giant filter to remove waste and toxins from the blood. The liver also produces bile for fat digestion and toxin neutralisation, metabolises alcohol, pharmaceuticals and chemicals, supports the immune system and stores vitamins. It is therefore important to keep the liver functioning and healthy especially during this time of year where alcohol consumption is higher and foods are richer and eaten in large quantities. Terranova Nutrition has developed a formula which can supports you during this time.
Terranova Nutrition is a multi-award winning supplement company with a range of more than 60 different nutritional and botanical products. Formulated and manufactured in Britain, Terranova is one of only a few large-scale supplement companies in the industry that does not use fillers, binders and other manufacturing additives in its products, and one of even fewer such companies that is 100% suitable for vegans.
