Your liver is the largest organ of your body and is also one of the most important. The liver does many jobs, including changing food into energy, cleaning alcohol and poisons from the blood, controlling the production and removal of cholesterol, restraining clotting factors to stop excessive bleeding after cuts or injuries and producing immune elements that removes bacteria from the bloodstream to combat infection. Your liver also produces bile, a yellowish-green liquid that helps digestion and absorbs important nutrients.
Liver disease causes more agony than any other disease. The most common factors that cause liver disease are obesity, prolonged intake of alcohol and drugs, changing food habits and a low immune system. Fortunately, the liver functions even if 75% of it is diseased or removed. This is because it has the wonderful ability to create new liver tissue from healthy liver cells that still exist.
Prevention is better than cure could be an ancient adage, but it couldn’t be truer in the case of Liver diseases. Liver is one of the vulnerable organs in the body that takes many years to be restored to its initial wellness once infected.
Nutrition and liver are interrelated in many ways. Unhealthy lifestyle and faulty food habits are the primary reasons for liver disorder and damage of liver cells. This takes shape as fatty liver disease, hepatitis, cirrhosis and the like. Only 25% of American adults are engaged in aerobics, physical activity and in maintaining a regularly balanced diet which aids in the health of the liver, what about others or what about you?
