Your liver is one of the largest organs in the human body. Its main job is to filter the blood that comes from the digestive tract before it is passed to the rest of the body. It converts the nutrients in our diets into substances that the body can use, stores these substances, and supplies cells with them when needed. It also takes up toxic substances and converts them into harmless substances or makes sure they are released from the body. But sometimes these toxins are not released.
Most people struggle with overburdened livers due to an unhealthy diet or lifestyle. This means their bodies are ineffective at digestion and fat breakdown, resulting in weight gain, feeling heavy, bloated and sluggish. The liver’s role is therefore crucial for efficient circulation, metabolism and fat breakdown.
Having a healthy diet will help optimize your liver. Despite the liver being able to break down most chemicals in the bloodstream, it can be damaged because of them. Constant exposure to harmful chemicals can put your liver in harm’s way.
The following are signs that your liver could be full of toxins and a trip to see your doctor is in order.
