Why you should take care of your 'Silent Hero?'

Do you believe in "you'll realize something's important when it's already gone?" I do. Living in a fast-paced era sometimes we take our health for granted, abusing it until it's already late.  This quotes sparks on me during the event I attended a couple of days ago.

If you haven't been paying attention, well you should be because we're talking about the body's most important organ. You heard that right and it's not the heart & the brain, this is the one that you abuse when drinking alcohol and eating unhealthy food. 

It is also the biggest organ next to our skin. Liver, probably the most overworked and silent hero of our body. It converts the food you eat into energy, stores important vitamins, minerals and releases them to the blood. It produces immune factors to resist the infections and bacteria on our body, It also detoxifies by metabolizing and expelling drugs, alcohol, and environmental toxins from our body.

During the event, I learned that there's a misconception that alcohol drinkers are most commonly affected by liver disease. One that is called Alcoholic Fatty Liver (AFLD) symptoms can include fatigue, pain in the upper right abdomen, enlarged breast in men, red palms, and yellowing of the skin and eyes, a condition called jaundice.

However, there are many factors that can affect your liver health such a prolonged medication, viruses, parasite, and obesity. There is also a liver disease called Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver (NAFLD) in which a person has a fatty liver even with little or no alcohol consumption. What is alarming with NAFLD is that its symptoms usually have no physical manifestation.  

Taking care of your liver and checking if it's fully functioning is your responsibility. Remember that it gives your body the energy it needs. So, aside from eating and drinking well, you can also take a blood test to monitor if your liver is damaged. 

Healthy lifestyle, food like berries, oatmeal, garlic and drinks like green tea and coffee are good for your liver. Also taking medicine is a big factor it helps to improve your liver function. I recommend Essentiale Forte P it contains purified EPL (Essential Phospholipids) naturally-derived from soya beans. It can easily be absorbed by liver cells and is clinically proven to strengthen liver health by promoting the repairing function and regeneration of liver cells.

Act and protect the silent hero of our body now!
