How To Have A Healthy Liver


I was guilty of living a somewhat unhealthy lifestyle in 2017. I used to have a regular check up to monitor my health but I deliberately avoided going to the doctor in the past months. February of 2018 when somehow I felt like something's wrong with my health. The doctor had my blood chemistry test done and the result was depressing. My cholesterol was high and my triglycerides was three times higher than normal. 

A good cholesterol level is very important and the liver has something to do with cholesterol. Are you familiar with fatty liver disease?  It is a fat build up in the liver and the most common cause is excessive intake of alcohol. Those who have an unhealthy diet of high fat and high sugar can also cause fatty liver. 

How to have a healthy liver


Watch what you eat.

You don't need to starve or deprive yourself of the food you want to eat. The key is eating in moderation. Limit your intake of saturated fats, food high in carbohydrates and sugar. Eat food that are rich in fiber, vegetables and fruits.

Be physically active.

People who are overweight usually have fatty liver. Exercising can help reduce triglycerides and liver fats.

Drink alcohol in moderation.

The liver works overtime to break down the alcohol. If you are taking too much alcohol than your liver could handle, it produces a toxic enzyme that could harm the liver cells which may lead to cirrhosis, a scarring of the liver caused by alcoholism and hepatitis.


Take food supplements that are good for the liver.

Milk thistle is a medicinal plant where silymarin is extracted. It has been known to help prevent and to treat liver diseases. 

It took me three months to achieve a normal blood chemistry result. Aside from religiously following a healthy diet and exercising three times a week, I also took HepaNorm for one month before my most recent blood test. The silymarin helped in maintaining a healthy cholesterol level. 

I'll be having another check up in two months and hopefully I'll be able to maintain the good blood test result. I'll keep you updated!
