Why You Should Love Your Liver


With the body relying on liver health, it is important that you do what you can to keep it strong. 

As the second largest organ in the body, liver health plays a significant role in the body’s overall health. The liver is a part of the hepatic portal system, which controls essential glucagon and insulin secretion throughout the body, monitors metabolism and digestion, acts as a detoxifying organ and produces cholesterol as well as blood-clotting substances. If the health of the liver is jeopardized, all other systems in the body are affected.

If you’re not careful, your liver health can be diminished. Alcohol, medications, pollutants and even viral infections can damage the liver. Symptoms of liver problems may include chronic fatigue, yellow discolored skin and eyes, nausea or loss of appetite.

With the body relying on liver health, it is important that you do what you can to keep it strong.

There are certain herbs and supplements that are known to provide essential antioxidants and other nutrients that support liver health such as milk thistle, N-acetyl cysteine, choline and SAM-e. Try our liver health supplements today to help ensure the strength of your hepatic portal system.

The American Liver Foundation recommends eating foods from all food groups (grains, protein, dairy, fruits, vegetables, and fats) and foods that have a lot of fiber while avoiding toxins from cleaning and aerosol products, insecticides, chemicals, and additives in cigarettes.1
