Detox your liver to heal your metabolism and lose body fat.
It’s amazing how few women understand the importance of maintaining a healthy liver.
The Standard American Diet (SAD) has caused a rise in obesity, diabetes, nutrient deficiencies, and an overworked, and underappreciated liver.
Your liver is arguably your most important organ in the body, and if you are taking advantage of its resiliency, you’ll soon discover it’s also the most important organ for weight loss.
Find out if you need to clean up your liver and how you can lose fat and get healthy.
Why Is Your Liver So Important?
Your liver is extremely valuable to your body, metabolism, health, and ability to burn fat. It is directly responsible for over six hundred metabolic activities and indirectly involved with all of them.
Your liver’s main role is to identify and eliminate toxins from your blood by policing the blood looking for toxins that are dangerous to your survival and well-being.
On the other hand, your liver looks for beneficial substances like vitamins and minerals, preparing them for proper use. As you know, vitamins and minerals are used to enhance your immunity, produce energy, protect your cells from oxidation/free radicals, protect your body from viruses and bacteria, and building strong muscles, bones, and teeth
Your liver plays a vital role in digestion as it metabolizes all calories, especially proteins, which are broken down into amino acids to build lean muscle tissue (AKA metabolically active tissue).
The liver helps in regulating blood sugar, storing glycogen for later use, making sure muscles aren’t broken down, which can lead to a slowed metabolic rate and gradual weight gain.
Your liver is responsible for removing excess estrogens. If you liver is overloaded with toxins, this causes estrogens to build up in the body, causing estrogen dominance, low testosterone, and low progesterone.
Most importantly, your liver helps supply vital hormones throughout your body helping regulate your metabolism. Your liver is responsible for about 75% of your thyroid hormone production, making sure inactive thyroid hormone (T4) is converted to active thyroid hormone (T3).
