How to Handle a Fatty Liver

Liver Functions

The liver, located under the diaphragm just above the stomach, is the largest organ in the body; and thousands of chemical reactions take place in it every second during life. When healthy, it inactivates hormones no longer needed, synthesizes many amino acids used in building tissues, and breaks proteins into sugar and fat when required for energy or eaten in excess. This liver also produces lecithin, cholesterol, bile, blood albumin vital to the removal of tissue wastes, prothrombin essential to the clotting of blood, and innumerable enzymes and
coenzymes. It converts sugar into body starch, or glycogen, stores it, and reconverts it to sugar when needed; and it stores iron, copper, several trace minerals, vitamins A and, to some extent, D, E, K, and the B vitamins. A healthy liver destroys harmful substances such as histamine, and detoxifies drugs, poisons, chemicals, and toxins from bacterial infections. Liver damage interferes with all of these functions and many more.
