“Your liver represents the human body’s primary filtration system, converting toxins into waste products, cleansing your blood, and metabolizing nutrients and medications to provide the body with some of its most important proteins.

As such a fundamental part of the body’s overall regulation, it’s paramount to keep your liver healthy and to limit overindulgence.”
