Major Key to Health and Longevity Often Totally Ignored
Most of us want to live to a ripe old age (120 would be nice), have full use of our mind and body, and be active and healthy until the night that we pass in our sleep.
Tens of thousands of anti-aging proponents spend hundreds and even thousands per month to realize that dream. And yet, with all the different life-extending therapies that are constantly being developed and promoted, very little attention has been paid to the one organ in the body that plays the biggest role in our health and length of life- the liver.
Second in complexity to the human brain, the liver performs over 500 vital functions. A poorly functioning liver can adversely affect nearly every other organ, every gland and cause a myriad of metabolic disorders. (Note: You'll find a short but impressive list of some of the liver's vital functions in the next section of this article. A list of sluggish liver symptoms appears at the end of the article.) Feeding your liver plenty of Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs), choline, and lots of Vitamin C coupled with an annual or semi-annual liver cleansing regimen are essential in any meaningful and effective anti-aging program.
The EFAs, choline and phospholipids in Lypo-SphericTM Vitamin C help the liver metabolize fat, create amino acids, breakdown toxins, build and repair hepatocytes (liver cells), repair blood cells, create bile, eliminate excess fat, and repair red blood cells among other things.* The Vitamin C helps in detoxifying the liver, relieving oxidative stress, and aids the liver in several of its construction processes.*
You have already taken an important step. Your daily intake of Lypo-SphericTM Vitamin C will provide a superior source of essential fatty acids, choline and Vitamin C. If you do not currently have an effective detox program to renew the health of a clogged liver, there are several good books as well as some good sources on the internet that can help you. Some of the Vital Functions of the Liver
* Filters the blood - about a quart per minute - removing harmful chemicals and pathogens. * Supplies majority of body's energy and nutrients through metabolism of proteins, fats, and carbohydrates. * Manufactures carnitine from lysine and other nutrients. Carnitine is the only known bio-nutrient which can escort fats into the mitochondria where they are used to generate ATP energy. The mitochondria generate 90% of the ATP energy at the cellular level. * Converts lactic acid from a toxin to an important energy source. * Regulates blood sugar between meals due to its manufacture, storage, and release of glycogen. * Regulates protein metabolism. * Converts different amino acids into each other as needed. * Converts essential fatty acids into the lipoprotein forms necessary to allow transport via the bloodstream to the 50 trillion cells requiring fatty acids. * Breaks down every substance toxic to the body. * Governs the body's metabolic activity through the construction of over 50,000 enzymatic systems. * Converts thyroxine (T4) into its more active form triodothyronine (T3). Low conversion may lead to weight gain, poor memory and other debilitating conditions. * Assimilates and stores vitamins A, E, D and K. * Manufactures gamma globulin - essential for the immune system. * Vital in the control and maintenance of blood pressure. * Manufactures and repairs several hormones like estrogen and cholesterol. * Breaks down lethal toxins (such as ammonia) which are created in the colon. * Creates bile. * Functions as the body's blood bank by storing excess blood until required. * Constructs blood protein. * Maintains electrolyte and water balance. * Breaks down and eliminates excess hormones. * Essential role in the control of blood sugar. * Biotransforms nearly every nutrient before it can be stored, transported or utilized.
Conditions that have been linked to a Sick or Clogged Liver
* Anger, frustration, irritability * Poor digestion * Dizziness, Vertigo * Eye problems * Red flushed face * Ringing in the ears * Bitter taste in mouth * Weak tendons and ligaments * Occasional constipation * Excessive mucus * Breathing difficulties, respiratory distress * Fatigue * Skin problems * Cholesterol problems
NOTE: If you experience any of these symptoms or conditions for more than two or three days you should seek medical attention.
