4 Ways to be Kind to your Liver

Maybe you don't know, but your liver is your bussiest Vital Organ and the filter of your body, cleaning your blood and recycling blood cells.

Your liver has some 500 critical jobs. This one, removes all toxins, clears medication from your body and metabolizes [breaks down] all your food. In fact — you can’t live a week without your liver.

Unfortunately, the standard American diet, which often includes fried foods,  sugars, and alcohol, isn't ideal for supporting liver health. The liver, also adjust cholesterol levels, builds proteins, and produces bile, which helps you absorb fats, stores sugar for when you really need it, and regulates hormone levels. For your liver, that’s all in a day’s work. 

What could possibly go wrong?

Liver disease doesn't always cause noticeable signs and symptoms. Liver problems that can occur include fatty liver disease and cirrhosis. The liver and its cells change dramatically when a normal liver becomes fatty or cirrhotic. 

Cirrhosis: in which liver cells are replaced with scar tissue, can prevent your liver from doing its critical jobs. 

Nonalcoholic Fatty Liver Disease: Fatty liver disease is sometimes called a silent liver disease. This is because it can happen without causing any symptoms. Fatty liver disease means that you have fat inside your liver that can, over time, affect liver function and cause liver injury. About 10% to 20% of Americans have NAFLD. If your liver stop working, toxins would accumulate, you couldn’t digest your food, and medications would never leave your body.”

So here’s a list of 4 ways to avoid liver disease and be kind with it:

1. Be careful about alcohol consumption:

Don’t be wrong thinking only lifelong drunks get cirrhosis of the liver — you’re mistaken. Just four ounces a day of hard liquor for men or 2  for women can begin to scar your liver

2. Eat Right:

Eating "clean" is the best way to support your body's natural detoxification efforts. Include in your diet  grains, fruit, veggies, whole-grain bread, rice and cereals. 

3. Skip foods that burden your liver:

Reduce sugar, salt and foods that are high in fat—moderation is key. 

4. Watch out for medications:

The number one reason clinical [medicine] trials are stopped or drugs removed from the market is the liver.
