It never seems like we have enough time in the day between balancing work, family and friends. Your liver is probably the last thing you think of over the course of an average day.
When you stop to think about it, everything you drink, including medicine, passes through your liver, and it’s the liver’s job to rid your body of any harmful chemicals. If you don’t take care of your it, how can it take care of you?
Who Needs a Cleaner Liver?
You do, if any of these sound like you:
• Difficulty concentrating from time to time.
• Random bouts of sleeplessness or oversleeping.
• Occasional, unintentional overeating.
• Tiredness or listlessness. Even after a good night’s rest.
• Needing too much coffee or too many energy drinks to get you through the day.
Supporting your liver’s detox process won’t necessarily make all those things go away, but if you see a little of yourself in the list above, it’s a good sign you may need to listen more closely to your liver, and find new ways to support it.
There’s nothing tricky about keeping your liver healthy. Here are a few tips that can help.
Cheers! Detox After You Drink
As food, drinks and anything else you consume passes through your body, the liver is there to try and cleanse your blood of any harmful chemicals absorbed from these substances.
When alcohol is consumed, it is mainly converted into acetaldehyde by the liver. The buildup of acetaldehyde in the liver results in that “not so great” feeling the next morning.
PartySmart® is clinically-studied plant-based herbal formula with herbs like Chicory, Andrographis, Amla and Date Palm designed to specifically help your liver after drinking.
PartySmart® also supports the liver and a better morning by speeding up the eradication of the acetaldehyde from the liver. It’s even been clinically studied in four double-blind, randomized human clinical trials for safety and effectiveness.
Going out with your friends? Having wine with dinner? Don’t forget to bring the PartySmart® along.
Know What Your Meds Do
Some medications may affect your liver performance even if they’re prescribed. Also, certain over-the-counter medications, such as cholesterol drugs, often list side effects that can negatively affect the liver. This issue isn’t limited to pharmaceutical drugs. Even common painkillers can hurt your liver if you take too many, too often.
The tip here is to always be aware of what you put in your body and be sure to openly talk to your doctor or pharmacist about how the medicines you take might affect your liver.
Move Your Body
Since it’s the liver’s job to store and process your blood while removing harmful chemicals, increased circulation allows for its cleansing powers to operate better. So, let’s get you moving!
During physical activity, the heart pumps more blood, and the liver is allowed to more easily release that clean blood to our brain and muscles. An active body is just plain healthier.
And as gross as it sounds, sweat more. Sweat is an important detox route, so treat your body to a regular treadmill date and a trip to the gym. Walk around the block. Enjoy a steam bath.
Go a Little Greener
Clean up your cleaning supplies. The stuff we use in the kitchen and bathroom exposes us to unnecessary toxins all the time. Trade them out for something green.
• Shop organic when possible.
• Reduce meat consumption. Start a Meatless Monday tradition.
• Eat more dark-colored fruits and veggies. They increase your antioxidants.
• Drink water instead of soda. Limit alcohol to 2-3 drinks a week.
• And if you do drink alcohol, remember your PartySmart®!
A liver that’s well taken care of can provide numerous health benefits such as increased energy, clearer skin and a well-supported immune system. It’s your body’s ultimate multitasking organ. Make sure you learn how to love it!
