Modern way of living leaves little time for a healthy well-balanced diet. As a result, most people turn to convenience or ready-made food, which is not only depleted in nutrients (due to the fact that it’s highly processed), but also full of harmful additives. Unless the produce is organic, even the fruit and vegetables you buy at the supermarket are laden with pesticides.
Needless to mention, long-term consumption of such food can seriously affect the function of your liver – the most important organ responsible for eliminating toxins from your body.
How do you know if your body is unwell ?
Your digestive system will make you bloated and sore, your lungs will leave you breathless or lightheaded, and your heart will give you pain or start to beat in a strange way.
But what about all your other organs?
You don’t even notice your liver or kidneys until they’re diseased or in a critical state.
However, just because you don’t feel them, doesn’t mean you should ignore them. The liver, for one, not only detoxifies your body, it also stores sugar and nutrients, breaks down hemoglobin, insulin, and hormones, converts ammonia to urea, supports metabolism, and destroys old red blood cells.
