Get to Know Your Liver

Get to Know Your Liver

As October is recognized by The American Liver Foundation as Liver Awareness Month, now is a great time to learn about the liver—what it does, how it functions, and why it is important. A basic understanding of your liver and how it works is necessary so you can take better care of yourself.

The second-largest organ of the body (second only to your skin), the liver weighs in at about three and a half pounds and is located just below the diaphragm. It is responsible for the filtration of almost everything that goes into your blood stream. Every medicine, toxin, and natural supplement you put into your mouth is filtered through your liver, broken down, and dispersed to your other organs. The liver also breaks down carbohydrates, fats, and proteins in order to maintain a proper water balance in the body.

An unstable liver that isn’t functioning properly may cause a buildup of toxins in the body that could cause a wide variety of long-term health issues. However, with the proper knowledge, and perhaps a few changes in your lifestyle habits, you’ll find that sound liver function serves as a major step toward True Health.

Want to give your liver a boost right away? Start by taking USANA’s Hepasil DTX™. Made using USANA’s Nutritional Hybrid Technology (NHT), Hepasil DTX is a comprehensive liver support formula designed to help maintain your body’s natural detoxification processes*.

More information on Hepasil DTX and the importance of maintaining a healthy liver can be found in the Product Information Booklet (Item #502) and an extremely informative downloadable flyer that you can share with your prospects found here:

  1. Pete, Would like to say to all your readers what a brilliant product HepaPlus is. My mum has a degenerative liver conditon called primary billary cirrhosis. Essentially most people with this condition will require a liver transplant after steady decline in liver function. Most of what you are told by specialists regarding this is basically that your condition will get worse, not better and at best will be a slow decline.
    Since USANA introduced HepaPlus I have had mum add this into her USANA program. Prior to this she was on the USANA essentials, calmag, biomega. With just these products she was able to maintain her results consistently which is better than all the other patients this specialist sees (however according to him this has nothing to do with high quality supplements). Within 6 months of taking HepaPlus, her results actually improved quite a bit - basically this is unheard of. To this day she continues to maintain her results and this is after nearly 10 years of being diagnosed and taking USANA. No liver transplant required here at this stage, she is active and healthy.
    All thanks to USANA!
