The liver is one of the most important organs in the human’s body because it helps digestion and clears out toxins and chemicals. Its main role is to clean the waste of the blood it receives from the digestive tract. After the blood filtration, the liver releases the blood back in the whole body.

The liver detoxifies the body of harmful substances that come from internal sources (like sugars, fat, and protein) and external sources (such as medications, drugs, food additives, food colorings, preservatives, alcohol, polluted air, artificial sweeteners etc.). Most of the toxins in our bodies are fat soluble, which means that they can dissolve only in fatty or oily substances, and not water. The importance of liver is that it converts these fat-soluble substances into water-soluble substances, which allows the body to get rid of poisons rather than store them.

However, the work of the liver can be weakened or even stopped by certain lifestyle choices and medical conditions, which can cause severe damage to the whole body. For instance, low blood pressure can reduce the liver functioning by causing hepatic ischemia (a condition when the liver doesn’t get enough oxygen and blood). The over-consumption of alcohol and processed food can also reduce the liver’s ability to detoxify the body. These are just a few of the many negative factors that can cause harm to the liver, and lead to serious diseases and even death.

But, you should stay calm because there are also many lifestyle and diet changes that can help improve liver health and function. Probably the most important one is to drink more water. You can also eat more beets because there are many studies which show that the antioxidant properties of the beets can help preserve and improve the liver health. In addition, beets can also reduce inflammation prevent the cell damage in the liver.
