AntiAging Central Liver Cleanse & Detox Formula
60 Herbal Capsules – 1 Month Supply (2 servings daily)
Liver Support Supplement with Milk Thistle Extracts
Your liver is your largest internal organ as well as the heaviest. It’s a reddish-brown color, rubbery to the touch, weighing about 3 to 3 ½ pounds or 1,560 gm. It’s also the most metabolically complex of all the organs in your body, performing 500 vital functions.
Located on your right side, over the belly, your liver is divided by the falciform ligament into two large sections known as the right and left lobes. The smaller, left lobe extends over the stomach. Directly beneath the liver is the gallbladder, large intestine and pancreas. These organs work together to process, digest and assimilate your food.
Of the 500 major operations your liver performs regularly, its main function is to filter blood passing through the digestive tract before it goes out to the rest of the body. It detoxifies chemicals, metabolizes drugs, and produces bile and proteins for blood clotting and other functions. It also fights off infection and controls blood sugar along with a host of other jobs.
How Your Liver Keeps Busy:
- Metabolizes alcohol and chemicals
- Neutralizes poisonous substances
- Produces bile to eliminate toxins and aid digestion
- Regulates fuel supply for the body
- Produces, stores and supplies glucose (quick energy)
- Produces, stores and distributes fat
- Manufactures proteins associated with transporting substances in the blood, resistance to infection, clotting, etc.
- Regulates sex hormones, thyroid hormones, cortisone and adrenal hormones
- Regulates body cholesterol
- Produces cholesterol, excretes and converts it into other substances
- Regulates the supply of essential vitamins and minerals
The Miracle of Regeneration
Imagine if you could grow a new finger to replace one that was cut off, or a new toe. It would be amazing if an arm would grow back, wouldn’t it? Of course, we know it can’t. But, there is an organ that can regenerate itself. Your liver! How amazing is that? In fact, it’s the only organ that can perform this feat. That means when one person donates a part of their liver to someone else, it will regenerate back to its original size. Meanwhile, the donated portion will also grow to the appropriate size in the recipient’s body.
Let’s Face it, We Eat Too Much Sugar
One out of every five calories we consume comes from sugar. Most of us take in about 26 teaspoons of sugar daily. A lot of that comes from processed, packaged food. So, how does your liver respond to that? It turns sugar to fat and starts building fat up. This can eventually cause the liver to swell and develop scar tissue. This is called cirrhosis. You don’t have to eat fat to bring on fatty liver.
Excess abdominal fat is one indicator of an unhealthy liver. When a woman’s waist circumference is over 102 cm or (40 inches), they are at greater risk of health problems. For men, a waist circumference of more than 102 cm (40 inches) puts them at greater risk. Doesn’t that inspire you to want to go measure your waist?
The Mediterranean Diet
One of the most important ways to support liver health is a healthy diet and exercise. Remember, it’s that all-important waistline that we’re focusing on here. —Not to mention giving the liver a break from all that sugar. Food that can reverse cell damage and enable the body to utilize insulin is best. It so happens that the Mediterranean diet combines the type of foods that support liver health. It includes healthy fats, antioxidants and complex carbohydrates. All winners. Basically, it is:
- Olive oil
The Good Fats
The right fats in your diet can help improve your body’s ability to use insulin effectively. When your cells take in glucose, your liver doesn’t need to make and store fat. The Omega-3’s in fish, fish oil, krill oil, vegetable oils, nuts, (particularly walnuts), flaxseeds and flaxseed oil are good fats. Olives, nuts and avocados are full of monounsaturated fats. Also, good. However, we should stay away from saturated fats found in pork, dairy products, butter, and meat, etc. Also avoid baked goods loaded with sugar and processed flour.
When nutrients fail to break down in the liver, the liver’s cells can be damaged. Antioxidants found in fruits, berries and vegetables can actually protect the liver’s cells from this damage. Two vitamins in particular can also help support liver health. They are vitamin C and E.
A Tough Job
Your liver has a tough job to do. All day every day, it’s busy filtering out the toxins in the foods you eat and liquids you drink. Thousands of chemicals are added to food and water. Plants are sprayed with toxic chemicals, animals are injected with potent hormones, and antibiotics and a significant amount of our food is genetically engineered, processed, refined, frozen and cooked. All this can lead to destruction of delicate vitamins and minerals, which are needed for the detoxification pathways in the liver. The liver must try to deal with every toxic chemical in our environment, as well as damaged fats that are present in processed and fried foods.
Many of these filtered toxins remain in your liver because your body can’t easily flush them out. That’s where our Liver Detox with Organic Ingredients can help.
