The liver is thought to be responsible for over 500 reactions in the body.  I have listed a few of the major functions:

  • ·       Protein synthesis and metabolism
  • ·       Carbohydrate metabolism and weight loss
  • ·       Cholesterol production
  • ·       Proper fat breakdown and absorption
  • ·       Insulin degradation
  • ·       Proper platelet and clotting functions
  • ·       Fetal red cell production
  • ·       Detoxification of environmental toxins and pharmaceuticals
  • ·       Aids in blood pressure control
  • ·       Enhances the immune system response

The liver is a “Store House” for many important vitamins and minerals:

  • Vitamin A
  • Glucose
