Your liver plays a big role in maintaining your overall health. You should eat healthy diet containing good amounts of nutrients. This will help your liver to work at its optimal levels. Nutrient-rich diet will also prevent this vital organ from getting overburdened. On the other hand, eating unhealthy foods can leave your liver sluggish because of the accumulation of toxins.

Liver works in 2 phases for removing toxins.

  • It uses enzymes for turning lipid-soluble toxins into compounds that cause lesser damage. These compounds are further passed through the second phase for additional detoxification.
  • In the second phase, the toxins are paired with other molecules in order to make them water soluble. This helps in easily removing them from your body.

Just eating healthy diet and leading a healthy lifestyle are not enough. You must also use toxin-free cleaning and personal care products. The environment, air, water, soil, factories, the plastics you use and many other things have toxins in them.

If your liver becomes sluggish, it will become difficult for toxins to move out of your body. Because toxins are soluble in lipid, they start getting building up in your fat tissue. And this is one way toxins cause weight gain.
