(The Best Years in Life) When it comes to maintaining good health, as well as fighting and warding off disease and illness, no organ is more important to us than the liver – the body’s toxic disposal plant. A healthy diet is essential for good liver health and there are also several specific natural food and supplement items which can help maintain and restore the liver to optimum natural function.

The liver is the largest organ in the body (besides the skin, which many do not realize is actually an organ) and is by far the primary way we eliminate dangerous toxins and other waste items, which are normally processed and eliminated via the bile ducts. The liver also helps process nutrients and stores vitamins and minerals.
When the liver or bile ducts become clogged, injured or otherwise impaired, some toxins can end up being stored in the liver while others are re-circulated in the blood stream. In addition, when toxins cannot be efficiently eliminated via the liver and bile ducts, the body tries to eliminate some of them through secondary routes, such as the skin. Skin rashes, spots and other skin problems are common in those whose livers are impaired.
An impaired or damaged liver may well turn into a fatty liver – a condition where the liver turns from its role as an organ to process and eliminate toxins to one which stores fats (and toxins in the fats). Excess consumption of alcohol and poor diets are primary culprits in causing fatty livers. Fortunately, damaged and impaired livers can usually be restored to good health. Of all our organs, the liver can regenerate itself – so much so that a liver can be damaged or impaired all the way down to 29% of original function and still regenerate to 100% – if properly taken care of.
