Liver is an organ, very vital for our survival. It is involved in various body processes like breaking down of nutrients and assimilation, protein synthesis, production of biochemical and detoxification or elimination of harmful foreign or toxic substances from our body. This organ plays a leading role in detoxification by means of a series of complex chemical reactions. The enzymes that participate in these reactions help in converting fat soluble toxins in to water soluble wastes that can be excreted through urine or in bile.

The detoxifying role of liver also involves the sorting out and destroying of a wide spectrum of micro-organisms like fungi, viruses, bacteria and parasites which could have otherwise contaminated the blood. Thirdly the liver neutralizes a wide range of toxins either produced in the body itself or coming from external environment.

To explain further, the metabolic processes going on in our body produce huge amounts of toxic chemicals and hormones which the liver neutralizes, and those coming from outside mainly come through the food we take, the water we drink, the air we inhale and the contents of our bowel.

Other detoxification procedures of liver include filtering of blood to eliminate large toxins, synthesizing of cholesterol loaded bile, and enzymatic disassembling of unwanted chemicals. Faulty food habits, laziness, overusing of body, too much smoking or alcohol consumption can put one’s liver at stake. To make things right, it is safe to go for a liver detox or cleansing. Liver cleansing helps the liver to function properly and it can be done through natural herbs.
