The liver is a crucial organ for the body since it has more than 400 functions overall and filters every small thing we ingest or receive. It deals mostly with the toxins among other things.
It breaks down the fats and stores the vitamins and minerals too. But also it processes nutrients and we must keep it healthy all the time.
It has 2 paths for detox and you can see below.
In the first stage this organ gets the enzymes and makes the toxins less toxic then in the other stage these changed toxins are water soluble so they could get removed more easily from the body.
We all get exposed to such toxins and even with healthy habits we cannot stop this. That is why a detox is always a good idea. 2 times per year is enough.
Do you have a lazy liver?
If the liver is too much exposed with toxins it stores them as fat. So, this makes it lazy in a way to deal with them all at once. Many signs can indicate if the liver needs a detox soon.
Bad emotions, fatigue, headaches, muscle and joint pains, allergy, depression, anxiety all point to this. To be healthy, you need a good diet. Cook the meals yourself and avoid eating out.
Lots of water!
Half of your weight is daily intake of water. 150 lbs would be 75 oz water.
