The liver and its role in staying young and healthy
The bowel operates in close relation with the liver, one of the most important components of the GI system. The liver may be considered a vast metabolic factory. It processes proteins, carbohydrates, and fats, and synthesizes bile, glycogen, and serum proteins that the body uses for metabolism.
Certain liver-friendly nutrients and botanicals can be used to periodically cleanse and mildly purge the body of accumulated toxins and potential toxins. This is an ideal way to jump-start a weight management program, revitalize a weight- management program when you are hitting a plateau, jump start a new fitness program, revitalize energy, synergize with a smoking-cessation program and generally feel better using HGH.
The liver’s role in detoxification is activated through the coordinated effort of two families of enzymes, known as cytochrome p450s and conjugation enzymes. By activating these enzymes, we can assist the liver in its job to detoxify and excrete toxins from our bodies. Common factors that cause a sluggish liver include smoking, excessive alcohol consumption, poor diet, genetics, chronic stress and aging.
Not only do cytochrome p450s and conjugation enzymes need to be activated but they have to be balanced as well. The enzymes families work together as a team to progressively detoxify the body. The cytochrome p450s actually generate free radicals in order to accomplish their task. Left unchecked, these can become harmful. The conjugation enzymes capture these free radicals, and inactivate them and prepare them for excretion.
