In this episode of the Holy Gut podcast, we discuss liver health and the effects of alcohol, diet and medication can have on the liver. Dr. Nathan Connelly explains in detail the four types of liver test you can take - blood test, ultrasound, FibroScan® and needle biopsy.
The liver, where it's situated, is very important for helping you digest your food. Indeed, the food comes into the liver from the gut and very raw, full of toxins and very difficult to process. So, the liver processes at all into more useful food substances, which then gets distributed to the body.
Any toxins and other unwanted parts get excluded out evenly in either the kidneys or in the bile. So, it a very significant detoxifying effect and a very important metabolic function. It also makes lots of proteins for things like blood clotting and albumin, which is the major protein in your body. So, it is absolutely vital to human health.
