Learn how to support the health of the organ that you may have betrayed the most: the liver.
From unhealthy eating habits and having one too many glasses of wine to damage caused by hormones and indigestion, your liver is on the frontlines working to keep your body safe through its detoxification process.
But overtime, overindulgence and overuse can be harmful to your liver and begin a domino effect for the rest of your body. Luckily, the liver has the ability to heal itself, especially when you take the right steps to help it out!

Signs You May Need a Reboot
When you have chronically over-indulged in sugary foods like donuts and cake or alcohol, and suffer from conditions like obesity and diabetes, the liver can begin to accumulate fat within itself, and develop a process of inflammation that leads to scarring. This scarring means the liver can no longer perform its job of detoxification, and harmful substances are no longer efficiently cleared from the body. This is called fatty liver disease, and it does not usually show any signs or symptoms. In its advanced stages however, it can show symptoms such as swelling of the liver, pain and swelling in the abdomen, and jaundice.
