Liver Function 101
Our liver is located underneath our rib cage towards the right side of our body. Weighing around three pounds and about the size of our brain, the liver is our largest and most complex body organ, performing over 500 known functions that help to keep our body in balance. Some of the more important liver functions are listed below:
• detoxification — removes harmful viruses, bacteria, yeasts, drugs, metabolic wastes, and environmental toxins
• cholesterol production and control, including the conversion of cholesterol to bile acids
• balances blood sugar by releasing glycogen when blood sugar is low
• stores nutrients such as vitamins A, D, E, K, B12 and the minerals iron and copper
• digestion and metabolism of the fats, protein, and carbohydrates from our diet
• produces proteins crucial for tissue repair, immune function, and blood cells
• breaks down and detoxifies excess and old hormones and neurotransmitters to maintain balance
• produces crucial body hormones and enzymes
• helps maintain healthy circulation and blood pressure
Unfortunately, life in the modern world is not kind to our livers. Modern chemistry has created a situation where we humans are virtually swimming in a sea of synthetic chemicals that our livers were never meant to deal with. At the same time that our liver is working hard to perform hundreds of critical functions required for our health, it is often being assaulted by fear and other negative emotions, wi-fi, pesticides, GMOs, alcohol, pharmaceutical drugs, caffeine, food additives, cigarette smoke, xenoestrogens, six or more types of hepatitis, and a host of other potent environmental toxins like atmospheric pollution. Over time, most people’s livers become overwhelmed and overloaded with toxins and liver health declines, along with the efficiency of the 500+ functions that our liver must do to maintain health and balance in our body.
Clearly, if we want to live a long and healthy life, keeping our liver in good shape has to be a top priority. Since our liver is the clearinghouse for all the nutrients we consume, no nutritional supplement is going to be able to help us in a significant way unless our liver is functioning optimally. Understanding and supporting the detoxification functions of our liver is one of the most important things we can do to keep our liver and, thus, the rest of our body healthy.
Liver Detoxification Pathways
Each minute, nearly one-third of all the blood in the body passes through our liver. Being the principle organ responsible for detoxification, our liver constantly monitors our blood for compounds that might pose a danger to our health. Our liver has two enzyme modulated detoxification pathways called Phase I (oxidation) and Phase II (conjugation). Most of the dangerous toxins we are exposed to are fat soluble, which makes them very difficult to eliminate without our liver’s help. In Phase I, our liver uses over 50 different enzymes to oxidize toxins into a charged state that can potentially be eliminated by our body. If the toxin coming out of Phase I is in a water-soluble state, it will be eliminated from our body via the bile fluids or urine. If it is still fat-soluble, however, it must go through Phase II. Phase II uses a variety of different enzymes to attach the oxidized toxin to another molecule, thereby producing a water-soluble compound that can easily be excreted through the kidneys or bile.
It is very important to have a balance between these two systems. Some of the modified toxins coming out of Phase I are highly reactive free radicals that are even more damaging to body tissues than the original toxin. Phase II needs to be functioning efficiently so that toxins coming out of Phase I are quickly moved into Phase II. Otherwise, these modified toxins will linger within our liver for a time and do significant free radical damage to liver cells. Based on this understanding, you can see the importance of quality antioxidants for liver health. It is also very important to not choose a product simply because it says it improves “liver health,” because it might significantly increase the Phase I systems in our liver only, which is unwise unless our Phase II systems are working well enough to keep up with the increased load.
Unfortunately, it is highly common in modern humans to have these two detoxification systems out of balance. Some of the toxins we are exposed to put our Phase I enzyme systems into overdrive (tobacco, alcohol, dioxins, refined vegetable oils, pesticides, and charbroiled meats), and the Phase II systems can start to fall behind. This slowly causes free radical damage in liver cells, and eventually, both the Phase I and Phase II systems become sluggish. When Phase I detoxification is inefficient, we will notice that it takes a long time for the effects of any drug that we ingest (alcohol, pain medication, or caffeine) to wear off. Symptoms of sluggish Phase II detoxification have been correlated with various chemical sensitivities and inflammatory diseases like hepatitis and arthritis. In general, whenever our body is attempting to remove a lot of toxins, such as when we are doing a cleansing program or are simply exposed to a lot of environmental toxins, our liver needs to have efficient and balanced Phase I and Phase II detoxification systems in place or we may experience what is known as a “cleansing reaction.” In this unpleasant situation, our body begins to throw off toxins through other organs in order to get them out of our body ASAP, producing uncomfortable symptoms such as diarrhea, mucus discharge, rashes, fever, headaches, nausea, brain fog, or fatigue. Cleansing reactions are often a sign that our liver is not functioning optimally and needs support.
