WHAT HAPPENS WHEN OUR LIVER NEEDS HELP?
Do you often feel tired and sluggish...are your memory and vision not as sharp as they used to be...are you having a difficulty to lose weight no matter how hard you try...?
If the answer is yes, please read this blog.
There are many different cause problems for it, but the most overlooked cause is a fatigued liver.
You will ask, what does it mean fatigued liver?
You see, our liver is one of the hardest working organs in the body. Every day, it has to perform over 500 essential functions which include, but are not limited to:
Producing more than 10000 crucial chemicals and regulating over 50000 vital enzymes
Balancing sex hormones
Filtering almost 100 gallons of blood a day
Producing a quart of bile daily to break down fat and help with food digestion.
Maintaining healthy cholesterol, blood sugar, and amino acids.
Converting glucose into energy your body can use.
Storing essential nutrients, such as vitamins A, B, D, and K.
Detoxifying waste products so our body can get rid of them.
Can you imagine how much work it is for one organ?
As we get older our liver becomes less efficient. Moreover, decades of exposure to pesticides, heavy metals, chemicals, and air pollution cause our liver to age even faster. It can't keep up with its heavy workload. It no longer can heal itself and regenerate quick enough, which leads to liver deterioration and shrinkage.
As a result, our liver is unable to convert glucose to energy quick enough and we may feel tired all the time. We start accumulating more and more pounds around the waistline, and get more cellulite, as our liver is clogged with fat deposits. We may also suffer from sex hormone imbalances and poor sex drive.
The good news is, that we can rejuvenate our liver and help it heal itself. When we do that, we'll feel younger, healthier, and stronger.
Liver does not function in isolation. Its performance depends on the support from other systems of the body, especially adrenal glands. When our adrenal glands aren't working properly, the liver struggles. That means that for the liver to work optimally, we need to boost our adrenals.
One of the best ways to boost the adrenals is with Licorice Root.
Licorice is rich in a compound called glycyrrhizin which slows the breakdown of adrenal hormones like cortisol, progesterone, and aldosterone. This takes a lot of stress off the adrenal glands and helps them function properly. Glycyrrhizin defends against liver inflammation and injury, prevents drug toxicity, and boosts our immune system.
Another nutrient that can help unclog our liver is called Brain Nutrient. Our brain uses this nutrient to produce "messenger chemicals". We need them to be able to learn a new information and recall and remember past events.
This brain nutrient called Phosphatidylcholine or PC. PC is more than just a nutrient for the brain and memory. It is also essential for liver health. It helps remove cholesterol and fat deposit in the liver. PC also reduces liver damage caused by alcohol, viruses and toxins, helps a damaged liver regenerate and grow new cells.
A bioflavonoid called Quercetin is another super antioxidant for the liver. It protects our liver from free radical attacks and DNA damage. Moreover, it can delay aging and help prolong our life.
But that's not all. Quercetin also protects the liver against inflammatory damage, prevents fat accumulation in the liver, and can reduces abdominal fat. As a bonus, it improves our cholesterol.
N-Acetylcysteine or (NAC) is another antioxidant that plays one of the major roles in the liver health. NAC is a precursor to glutathione, one of the most powerful antioxidants on earth. Glutathione neutralizes free radicals, and protects our body from oxidative damage. It is also a "vasodilator" of the liver. That means it boosts blood flow to the liver, delivering vital nutrients to our liver.
Glutathione is called "Major Detoxifier and Antioxidant". When the body has low levels of it, there’s an increase in vulnerability to toxins or risk of disease. This detoxifier neutralizes metabolic wastes, prescription drugs, and other toxins and carcinogens. Additionally, it also plays a vital role in DNA repair and the immune response. Glutathione depletion is also associated with various diseases and signs of aging.
Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA) - does all sorts of great things for the body and has been known to be a miraculous potent antioxidant supplement. It is found in the body and within every cell. It can neutralize toxins and protect against any DNA damage. ALA helps with the treatment of liver damage, diabetes, cancer, and other diseases. Not only does it fend off harmful free radicals, but it also helps recharge vitamins C and E which means ALA doubles the effectiveness of these vitamins.
It is believed that Alpha Lipoic Acid administered intravenously will assist in the detox of the liver and its regeneration. ALA has shown to decrease the amount of hepatic fibrosis associated with liver injury. In multiple studies it has demonstrated to trap harmful free radicals, chelate toxic heavy metals, and help in mutations in gene expression. Alpha-Lipoic acid also enhances the effects of other essential antioxidants, including glutathione.
ALA is both fat- and water-soluble. This allows it to bind with free radicals in a liver that's clogged with fat deposits. Plus it prevents triglyceride build-ups in the liver... protects the liver from damage caused by a fatty meal... and even helps with weight control.
Selenium - is a trace mineral that helps produce an enzyme called glutathione peroxidase which protects the liver against oxidative injury. Selenium also helps preserve our liver tissues and keeps them elastic. This is very important, because hardened liver tissues can lead to severe liver problems. On the other hand, resilient liver tissues promote healthy blood circulation in the liver.
Selenium also helps to detox heavy metals like mercury, lead, cadmium and arsenic... and prevents them from damaging cells and tissues inside the body.
NAD or Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide - is an essential substance that every cell in our body needs in order to be healthy. When NAD levels get too low, the aging process speeds up, mental processes slow down, and an individual’s general health can decline.
NAD has significant detoxifying effects. Individuals who have over-stressed their liver due to alcohol over-consumption or a high-fat diet can benefit from NAD Therapy to support healthy liver function.
If you're serious about your health... if you want to protect and rejuvenate your liver... and if you want to reap all the benefits of a healthy liver - more energy, improved cholesterol levels, a reduced waistline, and much more…
