Liver, Part 2

In our last blog, featuring Pure Body Institute’s Liver Balance Plus supplement (based on traditional Chinese Medicine), we discussed some of the liver’s 500 functions.

In addition to breaking down sugars and helping you maintain a healthy blood sugar level and removing toxins from the body, the liver performs a number of other important functions.

When you are an infant, your liver performs the important function of producing blood cells. As you grow into adulthood the liver recycles your blood, breaking down old or damaged blood cells and storing the iron and vitamins to use when needed. The liver also is essential in releasing the plasma proteins necessary to clot blood. So, healthy blood flow depends upon a healthy liver!

Your liver is also a fat factory of sorts. The liver breaks down fats that are eaten, converting excess carbohydrates and protein into forms that are stored for later use. The liver synthesizes other fats, like cholesterol. If you drink alcohol or consume excess fat, the liver works hard to process it all but sometimes grows fatigued! Central to this processing of fats is the bile the liver produces, which is held in the gallbladder and released into the digestive tract as needed. The bile helps break down and absorb those fats, while also removing waste and toxins.

Our livers may need support after times of overindulgence or when your digestion shows signs of being sluggish. Try one of our liver support supplements to keep this workhorse in tip top condition!
