The liver is the body's natural filter, everything you ingest passes through your liver, filtering toxins to protect your body. As resilient as the liver is, it isn't invincible. Even those who follow a healthy diet, regular exercise and lead a healthy life - their liver still takes on a serious workload!
Daily life forces your body to filter an extreme amount of contaminants on its own, but that demand is exacerbated when drugs, alcohol or medications are thrown in the mix. Additionally, factors outside our control such as environmental toxins and pollutants can cause additional stress on your liver.
Without proper care liver damage and diseases like cholestasis, non-fatty liver diseases or cirrhosis can occur.
