The liver is our body’s most important organ after the heart, performing many important functions. It also filters, regulates and stores blood. Stress, poor diet, and over-medication are common problems in our modern lifestyle. These may lead to stress and functional damage to the liver. As a result, "sluggish" liver has become a common ailment. It may affect memory, sleep, thyroid, body weight, and other body functions.
Weighing in at just over one kilogram, the liver is a complex chemical factory that works 24 hours a day. It processes virtually everything you eat, drink, breathe in or rub on your skin and that's just some of its over 500 different functions vital to life.
Every day, your liver helps your body by providing it with energy, fighting off infections and toxins, helping clot the blood, regulating hormones, and much, much more. To give you an idea of the liver's critical roles, here are some of its functions:
Cleanses the blood:
- metabolizing alcohol and other drugs and chemicals,
- neutralizing and destroying poisonous substances.
Assists with Circulation:
- The liver filters, stores and regulates the blood and is responsible for nourishing every cell in our body. Every part of the body depends on blood from the liver for nourishment and sustenance.
Regulates the supply of body fuel:
- producing, storing, and supplying quick energy (glucose) to keep the mind alert and the body active,
- producing, storing, and exporting fat.
Manufactures many essential body proteins involved in:
- transporting substances in the blood,
- clotting of blood,
- providing resistance to infection.
Regulates the balance of many hormones:
- Sex hormones,
- thyroid hormones,
- cortisone and other adrenal hormones.
- Eliminates hormones through the bile or urine. Since estrogen and androgen are both growth hormones that stimulate cell division, the elevation of their levels in the blood due to the liver’s failure to remove them efficiently can cause their accumulation in tissue. This in turn may lead to abnormal growths such as uterine fibroids, ovarian cysts, endometriosis, breast cysts, and breast cancer, prostate enlargement, or prostate cancer. Excessive estrogen is also the most common cause of painful menstruations.
Regulates body cholesterol:
- produces cholesterol, excretes, and converts it to other essential substances.
- Carbohydrate, protein, lipid (fat), mineral and vitamin metabolism; manufacturing and storage of many nutrients such as glucose and vitamins; production of heat through metabolism.
