Check It Out for a Party Season!  10 Good Foods for the Liver

In daily life, you probably have some occasions that you go for a drink with your close friends, colleagues, etc.  Especially in a party season, series of events like welcome party, farewell party, or year-end party would make you end up drinking too much.

The filtering system in your body is, as you know, the “liver.”  The liver is a vital organ that sits in the upper right portion of the abdomen protected by the rib cage.  The liver is often called the “chemical factory” of the human body due to its variety of functions.

Primary functions of the liver are:  “detoxification” of toxic substances in the body; “metabolism” converting nutrients absorbed into the body into biochemical form that can be used within the body; and “production of bile” necessary for digesting and absorbing fats.

“Detoxification” is the function activated when a person consumes alcohol.  The ingested alcohol is carried to the liver, where it is broken down to a toxic byproduct “acetaldehyde.”  Generally, the acetaldehyde is further broken down into water and carbon dioxide, and then, eliminated from the body.  With excessive consumption of alcohol, however, acetaldehyde will not be broken down and will accumulate within the liver, which is said causes liver diseases.

Still, maybe there are some events like a business party which you have to join.  Then, what is effective to protect your liver is, “taking good foods for your liver.”  Amongst the foods we usually eat, there are many that contain nutrients to assist the liver’s function.

Check the following “10 best foods for the liver.”  It would be a good reference for those you who have a series of drinking events lately.
