A Healthy Liver for a Healthy Life

Why is the Liver so important. Well according to Wikipedia read what it says.

The liver is a vital organ present in vertebrates and some other animals. It has a wide range of functions, including detoxification, protein synthesis, and production of biochemicals necessary for digestion. The liver is necessary for survival; there is currently no way to compensate for the absence of liver function.

This organ plays a major role in metabolism and has a number of functions in the body, including glycogen storage, decomposition of red blood cells, plasma protein synthesis, hormone production, and detoxification. It lies below the diaphragm in the thoracic region of the abdomen. It produces bile, an alkaline compound which aids in digestion, via the emulsification of lipids. It also performs and regulates a wide variety of high-volume biochemical reactions requiring highly specialized tissues, including the synthesis and breakdown of small and complex molecules, many of which are necessary for normal vital functions.

To put it simply the liver is the filter of the body. If the filter is not clean as in the air filter of a car the dirt gets into the fuel and therefore causes all kinds of problems. So it is with the liver of the body if it is not kept in good shape then toxins and poisons can get into the bloodstream and cause all kinds of problems.

Do yourself a favour and make sure you are eating lots of foods that are good anti-oxidants for the liver. Such foods include blueberries, blackberries, strawberries, raspberries, black grapes, watermelon and pomegranate to name a few. I personally love the ACAI Berry from Brazil as being one of the best anti-oxidants on the planet.

Remember whenever you drink too much alcohol and too much coffee you are harming the liver which is why it is so important to bring it back into good shape by eating foods and drinking juices that are full of antioxidants and phytonutrients and bioflavinoids.
