About the Liver and Body Detoxification
The liver’s vital functions include the removal of harmful waste products from the body as well as the storage of nutrients for energy release, it is also crucial for maintaining vitality and well-being. It's a primary detox organ of the body.
Vital for cleansing and cleaning the blood of toxins and impurities as well as keeping the body working well; it performs over 500 functions, including cleaning the blood of toxins and chemicals, excreting wastes via bile, acting as a 'factory' for proteins and cholesterol, converting excess glucose to starch and excreting bile for fat digestion.
Whether eaten, inhaled or absorbed, every toxin we are exposed to arrives at the liver. Such toxins include metabolic end products, contaminants, micro-organisms pollutants, food additives, drugs and alcohol insecticides and pesticides. Working alongside the body’s other detoxification systems, the liver helps to convert these toxins into a form that is more easily excreted.
The liver works in harmony with the body's other detox organs
Waste products are eliminated from the body via the:
- gallbladder: using bile and bowel actions
- skin: through sweat
- kidneys: through urine.
If one of the body’s detox systems is over-burdened, this also places a strain on the other systems, which include the digestive system, urinary system, lymphatic system, lungs and skin.
Top tip: Alcohol is a hormone disruptor because it taxes the liver, which is responsible for eliminating excessive or waste hormones from the body. If the liver is busy dealing with breaking down alcohol, it is unable to fulfil the important role of ridding the body of waste hormones.
