Liver Support Vegan
The liver is the second largest organ in the body (after the skin) and is best known for its role as a detoxifier. All food, alcohol, medicine, and any other toxins are filtered by the liver, which then disposes of these toxins via urine and stools.
The liver also plays an important role in regulating blood sugar, storing nutrients, and breaking down fats, so it's vital to keep your liver healthy for overall wellness.
Overloading the liver with too many toxins, such as alcohol, can lead to liver damage, or even liver disease. Similarly, a diet high in unhealthy fats paired with little exercise can result in non-alcoholic fatty liver disease. Both conditions can be fatal, so it's important to eat well, maintain a healthy weight, and avoid excessive drinking where possible. Taking a targeted supplement can also be helpful.
