Importance of Liver

Liver is the most important organ in our body. The proper functioning of many organs of the body depends upon proper functioning of the liver e.g Gall bladder, Lungs, Heart, Kidney, and Spleen. It stores fats, minerals and vitamins. It also removes toxins and destroys unwanted by-products. Further, it converts cholesterol into bile. The quality of life is rightly said to depend upon the liver. Working of liver is controlled by adrenal gland.

Problems of Liver

Liver produces bile juice which is stored in gall bladder and from there, whenever necessary, it is poured into the duodenum-part of small intestine and turns the acidic semi-liquid food into alkaline. Now, if the liver does not function properly (sluggish liver) and produce sufficient bile and if there is no free flow of this stored bile from gall bladder into the small intestine, acidity in the digestive system increases. This in turn leads to excess heat in the body; which in turn becomes the root cause of many serious diseases.
