Most people don't think about liver health to increase metabolism, but the liver is responsible for helping metabolize fat, produce bile and clean toxins. All of these functions contribute to converting food into energy.

In fat metabolism the liver cells break down fats and produces energy. It also helps insure that the level of sugar in your blood (aka blood glucose) stays constant. 

Bile is primarily well-known as a digestive secretion that helps to digest fats. Bile also breaks down nutrients from food to produce energy and converts inactive Thyroid Hormone (T4) to active T3 that the cells can use. 

And when harmful toxins and substances enter your bloodstream, your liver acts fast to detoxify and destroy them. 

So keeping your liver healthy is crucial for overall health.

Cleansing your liver can also affect your pancreas and help produce normal levels of insulin. You could also see improved blood pressure and better cholesterol numbers. 

In today’s podcast, we discuss 10 ways to cleanse your liver naturally to increase metabolism. 

I am going to begin this 2-3 week liver cleanse to increase metabolism on June 3. Hope you can join me. Please join our health and wellness community on Facebook to track our progress.
