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.
