When we think of detoxification, we have to think of the liver. There are many reasons behind this organ’s amazing functions and why people try to cleanse the liver for optimum health. Here’s a few reasons why:
1. Metabolic catalyst:
The liver is the main catalyst for all the metabolic processes in our body. All the nutrients we consume are processed by the liver after being digested. Carbohydrates, proteins, and fats are all processed in the liver and turned into readily usable form of glucose that is then distributed to all parts of the body. Glucose is the fuel/energy our bodies need to sustain itself.
2. Blood Detoxifier:
The liver is our body’s primary blood filtration system that filters the blood from the digestive tract before passing and entering through the rest of the body. In doing so it acts like a sieve to catch all the toxins that enter the body and into the liver. The body's primary source of toxins comes from the inappropriate foods we eat. Ex: processed foods, preservatives, stimulants (caffeine, sugar, salt), fried fatty foods, etc. Toxicity can also arise from drugs, lack of exercise, and even extreme emotions can impair liver function. When the liver function is impaired, food and seasonal allergies are often apparent as the liver’s ability to cleanse the blood is compromised.
3. Blood Storage:
Our entire blood circulatory system goes through our liver as many as 20 times a day. It is a major regulator of our circulatory system and releases vital nutrients, enzymes, and hormones into the bloodstream according to the needs of our body.
