What does your liver do for you?
While your liver performs hundreds of tasks, here is a summary:
Produces bile for fat digestion
Converts excess glucose to glycogen and fat for storage
Provides immunity against infection
Regulates blood clotting
Stores and activates micronutrients
Excretes wastes such as metabolic end products, contaminants, microorganisms, pollutants, food additives, pesticides, drugs and alcohol
A healthy liver is vital for just about everything to do with health.
If your liver is not well you may notice:
Moodiness or irritability
Trouble digesting fats or chronic indigestion
Bitter taste in your mouth
Poor skin tone
Trouble losing weight
What you can do to love your liver
Eat whole foods prepared from fresh, preferably locally grown produce, preferably organic.
Keep sugar and starches very low overall and give preference to starches from root crops and produce such as taro, pumpkin and parsnips.
Avoid rancid foods, especially rancid fats and oils.
Avoid food colourings, stabilisers, emulsifiers, flavour-enhancers and preservatives - basically any additives that are not obviously foods.
Avoid snacking between meals. Have 2-3 wholesome meals per day and little between.
Practice delayed eating: wait until you feel hungry then eat.
Bearing the last recommendation in mind, eat at the same times each day, within reason.
