16 Early Warning Signs Your Liver Is Sluggish And Toxins Are Being Stored In Your Fat Cells!
Liver is a vital organ that works hard everyday to filter out toxins and waste from the body, and carries out hundreds of other functions. The primary function of the liver is converting toxins into safe waste that can be excreted from the body through urine, sweat, etc.
The liver has more than 400 functions in the body, from storing essential vitamins and minerals such as iron, digesting fats, processing nutrients that have been accumulated in the intestines and breaking down drugs and alcohols.
If you are not providing the body with the right nutrients, you can burden your liver, which becomes sluggish and backed up with loads of toxic work.
How does the liver actually deal with toxic substances?
The liver, like the kidneys, filters out toxins and harmful substances from the blood.
The organ also produces albumin, a protein that helps keep fluid in the bloodstream. This prevent swelling and edema, an accumulation of fluid in bodily tissues.
When the liver is overloaded with fat-soluble toxins, it begins to store these substances in your fat cells.
In fact, one of the first steps in getting rid of toxins is the liver converting fat-soluble toxins into water-soluble ones so that may be expelled from the body through bile.
Of course, your health starts in the kitchen, so you cannot expect your body to thrive on supplements alone. You should create a healthy body through healing meals and habits. Keep in mind you don’t need to diet, restrict or remove entirely – but the key here is balance.
Eating healthy doesn’t have to be complicated, so just focus on the following steps:
Eat a balanced diet
Drink enough pure water
Avoid inflammatory oils
Choose foods high in fiber
Avoid refined sugars
Increase leafy green vegetable consumption
Focus on foods rich in sulfur
Limit or avoid alcohol consumption
Increase healthy healing fat consumption
Furthermore, the next three natural products can help you restore the liver’s function:
Curcumin, the active ingredient of turmeric, is a powerful anti-inflammatory agent that has numerous health benefits. It can assist the enzymes responsible for eliminating dietary carcinogens and thanks to its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, curcumin protects the liver against damage, regenerating the damaged cells. However, in order to increase its bioavailability, turmeric needs to be consumed with black pepper.
The active ingredient of milk thistle has powerful anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, anti-viral and anti-fibrotic properties which is why it is great for protecting the liver from toxic damage.
This vegetable is high in fiber that can improve bile production and protect the liver against damage. It also lowers the bad (LDL) cholesterol.
