    We all want to love our livers, right? I mean, they are a really important organ! This love your liver herbal coffee is not only delicious, but it helps support healthy liver function. Some of you may remember awhile back when I shared my recipe for cinnamon vanilla herbal coffee. I love that stuff. I drink it hot, iced, and frozen. But, as I’ve continued to expand my herbal research and work on giving my liver and digestion as much support as much support as possible as I work on healing my gut, I have developed a new recipe that I want to share today. I call this my “happy liver herbal coffee“. But, why does it make my liver happy? Because of the herbs that are in it! There are four herbs that go into this coffee: chicory root, dandelion root, milk thistle seeds, and burdock root. Let’s look at how each of these herbs benefits the body.

    Chicory Root Chicory is related to the dandelion. According to my affiliate partner, Mountain Rose Herbs, the root of the plant has been used as a coffee substitute for generations, especially in times where coffee beans may have been scarce or unavailable. In Egypt, it’s been cultivated along the Nile river area for thousands of years. Even Charlemagne required that it be grown in his garden. In the 18th century, it was brought to North America from Europe. Chicory is high in vitamin C and also has the highest concentration of inulin of any other plant containing inulin. Inulin acts as a prebiotic in your gut. Chicory has long been used for liver support, as it is a natural detoxifier and also promotes bile flow.

    Dandelion Root To many lawn owners, the poor dandelion is considered an enemy that needs to be slaughtered, but it is actually a very nutritious food and serves a very important role in the ecosystem. Dandelion roots have been used in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) for thousands of years, and are known as an herb that helps “cool the blood.” There is a lot of folklore surrounding dandelions, and a simple Google search will yield countless articles about the mystical and magical aspects of dandelions. According to Mountain Rose Herbs, dandelion roots are unusually high in potassium. They also contain substantial levels of vitamins A, C, D, and B complex, in addition to crucial minerals like iron, magnesium, zinc, manganese, copper, choline, calcium, boron, and silicon.

    Milk Thistle Seeds Milk thistle is a member of the sunflower family and it native to the Mediterranean. Over the years, it has become naturalized throughout Europe and now is found in Oregon and California (most people consider it an obnoxious weed). The leaves of the milk thistle are edible and can make a delicious addition to salads, with a taste that is similar to lettuce.

    According to Mountain Rose Herbs: “Three of the active compounds within milk thistle seed are collectively identified as silymarin. This constituent is credited for much of milk thistle’s medicinal value, particularly that which is associated with healthy liver support. The German Commission E has approved an extract of 70% silymarin in supporting healthy liver function … milk thistle seed can cause mild diarrhea by stimulating the release of bile.
