As you may know, the liver has many vital functions, including removing harmful waste products from the body, the storage of nutrients for timely energy release and maintaining vitality and well-being.
In fact, the primary detox organ in the body is the liver. Vital for cleansing the blood of impurities and keeping the body working well, it performs over 500 functions, including cleaning the blood of toxins and chemicals, excreting wastes via bile, acting as a 'factory' for proteins and cholesterol, converting excess glucose to starch and excreting bile for fat digestion. That is a pretty impressive resume!
We are continually exposed to toxins - in the air we breathe, in the water we drink and bathe in and in the food we eat. Our bodies are therefore continually trying to remove these toxins through our natural detoxification systems.
Literally every toxin we are exposed to (whether eaten, inhaled or absorbed) arrives at the liver. Such toxins include metabolic end products, microorganisms, contaminants, pollutants, insecticides, pesticides, food additives, drugs and alcohol.
So, if you're anything like us, you may well enjoy a tipple or two - but unfortunately, alcohol taxes the liver big time. And if our liver is busy dealing with breaking down alcohol them it is unable to perform all of its other vitally important functions effectively and efficiently.
And if one of the body’s detox systems is over-burdened, this also places the strain on the other systems, which include the digestive system, urinary system, lymphatic system, lungs and skin. Therefore we think it's a jolly good idea to give our valued liver a bit of support so it can continue to do its job well and help keep us in optimum health.
