Detoxing Your Body Using A Natural Liver Cleanse Is
The First Step In Achieving Radiant Health
The liver, located on the right side of our bodies, just below the diaphragm, is the largest gland in our bodies. The liver is responsible for a multitude of different functions, including regulating, synthesizing, storing, secreting, transforming and breaking down many different and distinct substances.
Liver functions include:
- The synthesis of lipoproteins such as cholesterol.
- Synthesis of bile, which is necessary for fat digestion and absorption.
- Manufactures carnitine for use in cell mediated fat transport.
- Regulation of the amount of cholesterol circulating in the blood.
- The storage and releasing of glucose.
- Converts lactic acid into glycogen.
- Converts B vitamins into their active co-enzyme form.
- Coverts ammonia into urea, which is excreted by the kidneys.
- The production or synthesis or specific proteins such as albumin and blood clotting factors.
- The storage of substances such as glucose, fat soluble vitamins, including A, B12, D, E & K, foliate, and minerals such as copper and iron.
- Modification and inactivation of hormones, i.e., the breakdown of hormones that have served their function.
- Detoxification of chemical elements whether ingested or inhaled.
- Removal of harmful substances from the blood and converts them into less harmful substances that can be eliminated.
The Miracle Organ – The Liver
Virtually every nutrient we consume, must be transformed by the liver into its proper biochemical form before it can be stored, transported or used. What is amazing, with all of the different biochemical functions performed by the liver, the liver is the only organ in the body that regenerates itself. Believe it or not – even if 25% of the liver is removed, it will grow back to its original size and shape.
In today’s society, with the ingestion of fast foods, over use of chemical agents and environmental pollutants, it is easy to understand how the already busy liver can become overworked, leaving you feeling tired, fatigued. Liver problems may also be responsible for health concerns such as digestive disturbances, increased allergy sensitivity, PMS or constipation, to name a few. With all of the functions the liver performs, here are some ideas you can use to keep it healthy and working at its highest capacity. But the first place to start is with a natural liver cleanse.
