Liver is the human body’s largest organ. (Forget about the skin).
Liver is the main filter of the human body. It is also the main organ that regulates the digestion. It is the master weaver that controls the metabolism. Immunity is dependent on its health. Liver sick, Immunity down, man sick. It stores Nutrients.
It is a pivotal and important organ that controls the supply of energy and nutrients to the tissues.
The Liver is a tenacious organ. It is capable of regrowing dead or damaged cells/tissues and becoming healthy in a short time.
Liver produces Bile. The function of the Bile is to regulate digestion by breaking up fat into small pieces so that they can be absorbed by the Intestines.
Bile Ducts carry bile through the liver and gallbladder. Bile, then travels to the Duodenum of the small intestines.
Functions of the Liver. The Liver has countless functions. Some of the major functions are :--
Store Vitamins and Iron
Store sugar glucose
Convert stored sugar to usable sugar
Break down Hemoglobin and Insulin
Convert ammonia to urea
Destroys old red blood cells
Produce Proteins for Blood plasma
Production of cholesterol and special proteins to help carry fats through the body
Regulate blood clotting
Resist infections. Produce immune factors. Remove Bacteria from the bloodstream
Old dead red blood cells are the waste product that gives our stools brown color. Discoloration of human excreta may be a warning that something is wrong with your liver. Darkened urine bears the same message. Jaundice is the name of the disease when the skin and the eyes become yellow. Jaundice means excess Bilirubin. All these are the consequences of malfunctioning of the Liver.
If I abuse myself by consuming alcohol, my Liver will harden and Cirrhosis will set in. The same will happen if I am infected with Hepatitis C.
