Your liver is the major detoxification organ in your body. Its many roles include cleaning the blood, manufacturing the bile needed to absorb fat, breaking down hormones, regulating fat and sugar metabolism and storing essential vitamins, minerals and iron. The liver supports almost every organ in the body and is essential for survival.
However, it is becoming increasingly common for people to get a fatty liver, which occurs when fat accumulates inside our liver cells causing the liver to becomes enlarged and swollen with fat. Fatty liver is associated with insulin resistance, and if left untreated can progress to liver cirrhosis, diabetes or even liver cancer.
