In today’s show, “Caring for Your Liver,” we will learn about the importance of the liver and tips to care for it. Did you know that the liver is the only internal organ that can regenerate itself?

One of the major functions of the liver is to produce bile for the digestion and absorption of fats and cholesterol in the small intestine. Bile also helps with uptake of vitamin K, which in fact is a group of organic compounds essential for blood to clot normally. The liver processes bilirubin from spent hemoglobin and helps remove it from the body.

According to the Center for Disease Analysis (CDA) in Colorado, USA, about 89 million Americans have this condition without being aware of it. Such a pervasive lack of knowledge is actually understandable because the illness usually has no symptoms, but there is no lack of consequences.

In 2021, a research published in the Journal of Gastrointestinal and Liver Diseases showed that people with NAFLD have improved liver function and weight loss after following a vegan diet for six months. Other studies have found that a high-fiber plant-based diet can reduce liver fat, and the antioxidants in these foods help to limit inflammation. These are important takeaways from our presentation, since there are currently no pharmaceuticals available for fatty liver disease. By eliminating fast food, you can retrain your taste buds to appreciate and enjoy fruits, vegetables, beans and whole grains. Furthermore, establishing a good habit of regular exercise can reinforce the positive outcome of adopting a healthy vegan diet for maintaining a healthy weight.

We hope that our show has inspired you to adopt a healthier lifestyle. Take good care of your liver by switching to a vegan diet. Benefit your whole body through regular physical activity. And upgrade your future by making good decisions and treating others with kindness.
