A healthy liver slows down aging
My research shows that the aging process can be slowed, and to a significant degree, it can even be reversed, if we improve our liver function. Over 20 years of in-depth clinical research in more than 6000 patients, I have found that improving your liver function, or optimizing your liver function, can slow down the aging process.
This is very exciting news, as we are expected to live much longer than we did at the beginning of the 20th century, when the average lifespan of a woman was less than 50 years.
The aging process is caused by damage to our cells and especially a part of our genetic structure (DNA) which regulates the rate at which the cell will age. This part of our DNA is called the telomere and is the end part of the DNA. The telomere protects the DNA against damage from free radicals, so we want our telomeres to be long.
The telomeres can be damaged by a build up of toxins in the body which come from polluted air, cigarette smoke, heavy metals, pesticides and excess sugar. The liver is the only organ that will break down these toxic substances and it is working very hard today where toxic chemicals have become widespread. If the liver is fatty or infected by hepatitis viruses it will need even more help to strengthen all its functions.
My research and clinical experience has found that the most important things to improve your liver are –
The herb St Mary’s Thistle – you need at least 420 mg per day of pure silymarin, as this is the dose supported by clinical research.
The mineral selenium – you need approximately 200 mcg per day
The sulphur bearing amino acids such as taurine, glutamine, glycine and cysteine
The B group vitamins
These things are truly amazing in rejuvenating the liver when they are combined together in one formula.
My LivaTone Plus combines all these ingredients together in the right doses.
Your liver is the filter and cleanser of your bloodstream and just like a filter in any high powered engine it must be cleansed. If you do not look after your liver, your bloodstream will become overloaded with toxins and fat and these things will damage the DNA in your cells. The awful result is that you will find yourself aging too rapidly and putting on weight too easily. You will also lack the energy to enjoy your activities and social life. The liver is not only the most important anti-aging organ, it is the organ that generates the energy in your body! So many people feel and look old just because their liver is not producing enough energy – and yet very few doctors think about the liver!
My research has found that we need to focus on the liver to stay young and energetic. The Chinese are right when they call the liver the general of the army of the body.
I have a very busy medical practice and see many people with liver problems such as fatty liver, cirrhosis and hepatitis. Here is a case history for you to inspire you to take care of your liver.
Dear Dr Cabot,
“I am feeling so much better than I did 20 years ago – indeed it is just a miracle. I am now aged 62 and yet people think I am around 50. I remember back in my early 40s feeling most unwell with fatigue, wrinkly skin, brown liver spots on my skin and headaches and lots of aches and pains – I felt much older than I was and people would often comment that I looked tired and older than my years. I hated that and it made me very sad and depressed so I just ignored these insults and kept on working.
When I first saw you 2 years ago, you discovered that I had a sluggish liver and also had excess fat in my liver. My blood sugar was a little high and my liver enzymes were slightly raised. You told me to focus on improving my liver and that after 3 to 4 months I would see a big improvement. I must admit that I did not completely believe you, even though you are a famous liver doctor, but I was willing to be patient as I felt so unwell and my life was drudgery.
Well let me tell you after 6 months of being on your LivaTone Plus capsules, I am amazed – I am so pleased that I persisted. I had seen many other doctors before and tried vitamins and hormones and although they helped a bit, I still felt old and tired and I looked older than I was. This time it’s different and I feel so much better than I have felt for 20 years. My skin is now clearer and smoother and I have color in my face. Even better the awful brown liver spots have gone!
I have lost some excess fat around my middle, although I must admit I have been eating more vegetables and less sugar. I can now see how providing my liver with the ingredients you recommend has really changed my body dramatically.”
This testimonial is typical of many patients I see with poor liver function. If they provided their liver with the essential things they discover a younger, slimmer and happier person.
So my motto is ” Love Your Liver and Get Younger every day of your life”
