BE KIND TO YOUR LIVER





The liver, the manufacturing hub of the human body is responsible for filtering the blood coming from the digestive tract before passing it to the rest of the body. It also makes proteins that are important for blood clotting and other functions of the body.

When the liver is affected by toxins, the metabolic process is disturbed and leads to several health problems. The fats and toxins that build up in the liver slow down the metabolic process and the fat starts depositing in other body parts which leads to weight gain.
