Love Your Liver - Live Longer

My Doctor Says My Liver Is Fine

Yes, your liver enzymes may be normal and you have no liver pain but that does not mean your liver is functioning optimally. Hey, you could be walking around with blockage in your coronary arteries, normal heart enzyme levels and feel fine. Liver blood tests reveal  liver issues after the liver  has been so damaged that the cells actually release their enzymes into the blood. Your liver cells have enzyme inside of them and that is where they are supposed to stay. If your liver enzymes were elevated then you have had liver damage. There is a difference between liver damage and sub-par liver function.

You know what a lock is. You also know that in order for a lock to function you need to put a key in it. Think of your liver enzymes as locks. Think of the nutrients in your food as the keys. You need to eat the keys (nutrients) in order for the liver enzymes (locks) to function.

Where Do I Get These Special Keys?

In vegetables there are vitamins and minerals. However, there are also many of other nutrients that are equally if not more important then the vitamins and minerals. These nutrients are called phytochemicals, phytonutrients, or for the technical people out there biological response modifiers. Whatever you call these powerful essential nutrients (keys) if you don’t eat them your liver enzymes (locks) will not function optimally.
