Do you have a sluggish liver

Do you have a sluggish liver?

Your liver is the hardest working organ in your body! It performs thousands of functions every minute of every day to keep you alive; let’s take a look at the most vital:

•    Fat metabolism – this helps with your weight and cholesterol levels
•    Detoxification and filtering of your blood.  This helps your energy level, plus ability to think and concentrate
•    Destruction of unhealthy cells and bacteria
•    Manufacturing of essential proteins which are necessary for healthy immune function
•    Maintaining hormonal balance; especially breaking down excess estrogen
•    Generating the energy and warmth to keep you alive

If you have 4 or more of these symptoms, your liver needs help.

The most common causes of a sluggish liver include:

  • Incorrect diet, especially too much sugar
  • Exposure to toxic chemicals
  • Excess alcohol
  • Diabetes
  • Overuse of pain killers or taking many prescription drugs
  • Viral infections
  • Autoimmune disease

No wonder liver dysfunction is so common today.

The most common problem we see today is fatty liver and it can affect people of all ages, especially if they are overweight. If you have a fatty liver you will find it very hard to lose weight, unless you improve your liver first. Please follow the eating plan in my book Fatty Liver: You Can Reverse It.

To support your liver function we recommend St Mary’s Thistle which is a herb with a proven track record, combined with selenium and taurine; these things are required by the liver for detoxification and production of healthy bile and are found in Livatone Plus capsules or powder.
