The liver is one of the body’s most important organs, and yet its role in overall health and wellness is often overlooked or misunderstood. In all, the liver performs over 500 functions that help to keep the body healthy and free from toxins.
Understanding the role of the liver in overall health, risks of an unhealthy liver and ways to maintain a healthy liver is critical to ensuring your clients are experiencing optimal wellness.
The Body’s Gatekeeper
Everything we eat and drink is filtered through the liver. After the stomach and intestines have digested food, what remains is absorbed into the blood and passed through the liver.
As gatekeeper, the liver pushes toxins out of the body through urine and stool and plays a vital role in maintaining the amount of sugar in the bloodstream.
The liver breaks down fats through the production of bile and stores excess carbohydrates and proteins that the body uses over time. Liver dysfunction stresses all of the body’s other vital organs including the kidneys, lungs, and heart.
A healthy liver is also a vital part of the immune system. The liver helps our bodies resist infections by removing bacteria from the bloodstream and producing key immune factors.
In addition, the liver stores vitamins A, D, E, K, and B12, all of which have essential antioxidant properties and play an important role in achieving optimum mental health.
Risks of an Unhealthy Liver
There are several risks of an unhealthy liver. When the liver is damaged or diseased, it affects the health of the entire body. Common conditions associated with an unhealthy liver include:
Hepatitis (inflammation of the liver)
Fibrosis (scarring of the liver)
Cirrhosis (severe liver scarring)
Ascites (fluid buildup in the abdominal cavity)
Hepatic encephalopathy (buildup of ammonia in the body and brain)
Cultivating a Healthy Liver
Prevention is key when it comes to liver health. It is encouraged that all clients follow a healthy diet, stay appropriately hydrated, exercise, eliminate or reduce alcohol and caffeine, and maintain a healthy weight.
In addition to these lifestyle recommendations, supplements can help detoxify, cleanse and support the liver.
QuantaSmodium+ contains desmodium leaf in a liquid solution used to support a healthy liver and assist with various liver conditions. It may also increase detoxification.
The desmodium in the QuantaSmodium+ formula is procured from the tropical African country of Cameroon. This unique, plant-based extract helps to bring balance to the digestive tissue and intestinal flora, may reduce the occurrence of infectious diarrhea, gas, inflammation of the lower GI tract, smooths muscle spasms in the intestines, and offer hepatoprotective properties.
It also may help:
Promote hepatocyte development to support a healthy liver
Offset the effects of hepatotoxic drugs (i.e. chemotherapy)
Assist with breathing disorders
Ease certain skin disorders related to autoimmune conditions
Support liver function in cases of acute, excessive, or chronic alcohol consumption
Assist with various other liver conditions
