Liver is one of the human body's largest and most vital organs. The liver performs over 500 functions, holds about 13% of the body's blood supply at all times and filters over 1 liter of blood each minute! It is involved in the production of over 13,000 different chemical compounds and maintenance of over 2000 internal enzyme systems. It makes blood proteins, clotting proteins, lipoproteins, and 80% of our cholesterol. It filters blood, makes bile, makes and breaks down hormones, regulates blood sugar and changes harmful toxins into substances that can be safely eliminated from the body. That is just for starters! We simply cannot live without the liver! So let us take good care of it.
We are exposed to toxic chemicals in food that we consume daily. The exposure can be from residue of pesticides on the vegetables or fruits or from sugar substitutes or artificial sweeteners and myriad of other additives in the processed food. For most people, the daily liver cell damages are so great that it exceeds the rate of liver cell renewal by a significant margin. Liver hepatocyte cells grow extremely slowly and renew themselves at rate of six months to twelve months. Therefore, daily liver cell damages from toxic chemicals contained in our food supplies(both processed and unprocessed) can result in serious and permanent liver damage that is very difficult to reverse. When cell damages of the liver reach a certain level, metabolic disorders begin and can cause inflammation and chronic diseases such as diabetes, heart diseases, and even cancer. Daily cleansing of the liver can reduce the toxins in the liver and is the key to protecting the liver and maintaining a healthy metabolism.
