The liver plays a crucial role in keeping the body and the bloodstream free of all toxins besides performing a host of other important functions. It supplies glucose to the blood whenever one has low blood sugar or hypoglycaemia. It stores glucose in the form of glycogen, vitamins A, D, and B, and minerals such as iron and copper. It acts like a ‘washing machine’ and is the main organ involved in the natural detoxification process. A healthy liver eliminates toxins efficiently by either deactivating them or by adding a chemical substance to the toxin to get rid of it. Unless the liver functions properly, we cannot lose excess weight and gain health.
Here are a few things that tell you that your liver needs a wash:
Feeling of bloatedness after a heavy meal
Feeling bloated after heavy meals is one of the first indications that your liver needs cleaning.
Suffering from indigestion, mood swings, bad breath, a coated tongue, and memory loss are signs of mild liver dysfunction and may occur even though all your liver function tests are normal.
Raised liver enzymes
These are found only when the liver cells are damaged. Don’t wait for that stage of abnormal liver function. If your bloods fats are high, showing high cholesterol, triglycerides, low HDL and high LDL, or if you get frequent headaches, suffer from fluid retention, high blood pressure, chronic fatigue, excessive body heat, constipation, flatulence, inability to tolerate fried and fatty foods, reduced tolerance to alcohol, hypoglycaemia, excessive hunger, frequent colds, reduced immunity, increased allergies – it’s time you started cleansing your liver ‘one of your most vital organs of your body’.
