I cannot stress enough the importance of keeping this vital organ in optimal condition. The liver acts as a filter for toxins and waste products in the bloodstream, regulates metabolism, stores energy, and produces vital hormones and proteins.
Unhealthy Eating/Drinking Habits
Your liver may build up fat cells before excessive fat build up, or "fatty liver" and it will eventually reach the point of heavy inflammation. From there it can go into deeper liver diseases such as cirrhosis and end up with scar tissue. Yes, the liver has a miracle capability of regeneration, but you're not removing any sections of your liver by adding fat to it. You have to work the fat out of the liver methodically. And if you take care of your liver, your whole body will show it.
Over 80% of people in the world have fat in the liver and are unaware of it. This is astonishing news !
Here's some easy to spot signs that you may have noticed:
- Yellowish eyes (Jaundice)
- Frequently Nauseated
- Swollen ankles
- Beer belly
- Lack of energy, exhaustion
These are just some of the common things that might indicate you have a fatty liver...
