Importance of a Liver Detox

Your liver is one of the most important organs in your body. Its job is to filter your blood and to metabolize nutrients that keep you healthy.

Unfortunately, however, the modern world is filled with toxins – including heavy metals, synthetic chemicals, pesticides, pollutants, plastics, etc. – that make it harder for your liver to function at optimal performance.

That’s because many of the toxic substances which are processed by your liver are fat soluble and, thus, are difficult for your liver to fully metabolize. Instead, these toxins cling to fatty cells and membranes in your body where they remain for days or weeks, if not years.

What Can a Toxic Liver Cause?

In times of stress, these lingering toxins can trigger negative side effects – causing everything from headaches or nausea to fatigue or memory loss.

Your liver produces bile that digests fat and breaks it down to water-soluble chemicals that can be excreted from your body. However, your liver may not be able to process all of the environmental toxins you are exposed to on a daily basis.

In fact, this exposure can slow down your liver’s functioning, which can lead to an increase of toxins in key organs such as your brain, breasts, and adrenal glands.

This, in turn, can lead to hormonal imbalances, fatigue, cognitive issues, and even infertility or cancer. That’s why liver detoxification can play an important role in restoring and maintaining your overall health.

How a Liver Detox Can Help

There are numerous liver detoxification methods that can work for you, depending on your individual needs and as recommended by your physician. Many of these programs follow a seven-day protocol since it takes your body that long to clean your blood and liver.

The first phase of liver detoxification usually involves fasting on liquids for two days. That phase is followed by a pre-planned, five-day diet that allows your digestive system to rest while toxins are flushed from your system.

Once the detox process is complete, you can help keep your liver clean and your body in good health with diet supplements and beneficial lifestyle practices, such as:
