The liver …. Your best friend or worst enemy!!!
The liver is your primary filtration system, converting toxins into waste products, cleansing your blood and metabolizing nutrients. It stores precious nutrients for future utilization. It is a hard-working organ. THE HEALTH OF OUR LIVER IS PARAMOUNT IN MAXIMUM WELLNESS! Without a well-functioning liver, every other bodily process and organ will suffer.
We often associate liver problems with alcohol. Over the years helping clients in Emagenes, we found lots and lots of people with liver problems that do not drink alcohol. The common evil was sugar!
Too much SUGAR causes a fatty build up that can lead to liver disease and yes, sugar can be as damaging to the liver as alcohol!
IT EVEN HAS A NAME NOW!!! Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD)
Sugar is children’s alcohol. Alcohol soothes emotional pain. Sugar is addictive. Alcohol is addictive! Drinking too much alcohol can wreak havoc on your liver. Over time it can lead to cirrhosis. Even occasional binge drinking- four drinks in one sitting for woman and 5 drinks for men- can be harmful too. Try to limit yourself to one drink a day if you are a woman and two a day if you are a man.
In short…SUGAR MAKES ALCOHOL IN YOUR STOMACH AND FAT IN YOUR LIVER!!
A healthy liver means a healthy body and the opposite!
Your liver is a forgiving organ and can rebuild itself. But!!! There is always a line …and if overstepped and pushed too far it might be too late to reverse damage done.
Two of the best things you can do for your liver is to keep a healthy weight (eat healthy) and exercise!
A HEALTHY LIVER WILL REDUCE YOUR RISK OF CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASE, DIABETES, CANCER…
