Do you know the liver is the largest organ in the body? It is shaped like a triangle and is the size of a football in an adult. It has the ability to regenerate (create new tissues) after being damaged.
The liver cleans your blood and virtually everything that enters the digestive tract – foods, drinks, vitamins, herbs, medicines, and everything that is breathed in the air or absorbed through the skin must pass through the liver in an attempt to be purified and detoxified?
The liver also stores vitamins and minerals as insurance for later use.
Alcohol can destroy your liver so drink alcohol in moderation. Your liver would be considered the engine of the body or a giant filter that keeps the body clean.
If your liver is damaged you can be prone to bone fractures, have a pronounced tendency to bleed because the blood doesn’t clot, or ammonia can build up in the blood and brain.
Foods high in fiber, vitamin B, C, and E, omega-3 fatty acids, and foods rich in Beta Carotene protect your liver and keeps it healthy. Take care of your liver today, because if your liver fails your body fails.
