Whenever you suffer from any skin problems, there's a high chance that your liver is involved too. Being the largest internal organ and yet the most crucial organ in the body, it breaks down the toxins and filters out the waste products.

While there are many ingredients out there that could help you out to achieve a healthy liver.

The word tulsi means 'The incomparable one'. Well known for its spiritual significance in India, it has enormous health and skin benefits too. Just like any other herb, tulsi is also packed with vitamin A, C and K, minerals like calcium, manganese, iron, zinc and most importantly phytonutrients and volatile essential oils. Tulsi helps in detoxification by helping the body in getting rid of the toxins by improving the liver function. It also fights inflammation and works as an antibacterial, antifungal and antiviral agent.

This herb reduces blood sugar levels, prevents weight gain and protects the organs such as liver, kidneys, and pancreas.
