Our built-in detox system.

by Herbs, Etc.

The main organ that helps in the detoxification process is the liver.

Everything you breathe or swallow that is broken down and absorbed into the bloodstream passes through the liver, which is the largest internal organ in your body. In fact, the liver is about the size of a football, weighs about 3 pounds, and sits on the right side of the belly just above the gallbladder.

The body depends on the liver to regulate, synthesize, store and secrete many important proteins and nutrients and also to purify, transform and clear toxic or unneeded substances.

Many detoxification products claim to "cleanse" the liver, but in healthy individuals, the liver is not a place where toxins are stored. Rather, the liver turns potentially harmful chemicals into water-soluble chemicals that can be sweated or excreted from the body. The liver typically does a "superb job" of detoxing your body.

With the help of vitamin K, the liver produces proteins that are important in blood clotting. It is also one of the organs that break down old or damaged blood cells. The liver plays a central role in all metabolic processes in the body. In fat metabolism, the liver cells break down fats and produces energy.
