Natural liver cleansing

The liver is the main organ responsible for processing, converting, distributing and maintaining the body’s ‘fuel’ supply and  liver problems are the main impediment to acquiring and maintaining good health, youthfulness and vitality.  Lets discuss some natural liver cleansing approaches. In the second part we describe, in detail, the Liver Cleansing process.

Liver functions

The liver is the biggest organ in the body and the most important outside the brain and heart. The liver performs a variety of tasks, including:

  • Processing and eliminating toxins and drugs from the body.
  • Producing bile that is used to break down fats.
  • Fighting infection and disease.
  • Storing vitamin B12, copper and Iron.
  • Storing glycogen, the body’s glucose storage.
  • Producing and regulating cholesterol.
  • Cleansing the blood.
  • Processing digested foods and their nutrients.

Gallstones in the liver might be the reason people become ill and have difficulty recuperating from illness. Most people who have a physical complaint of sorts have perfectly normal liver enzyme levels in the blood, despite suffering liver congestion. The majority of gallstones in the liver and gallbladder consist of the same ‘harmless’ constituents as are contained in liquid bile , with cholesterol being the main ingredient.
