The Importance Of Looking After Your Liver. Ever wondered why you keep on waking up at 3 in the morning?? Ever wondered which part of your body is doing all the ‘processing’ when you go to sleep at night? Well here is a special article on the importance of looking after your liver for these and many more reasons….
The Liver and Gallbladder spring into action between 11 pm to 3 am. In fact the liver is called your 2nd brain, after of course the gut, your first body brain. The gut is a master of all systems during the day but takes a break at night and then that’s when the liver takes over, well deservedly so!!
Those nights when you can’t sleep at this time means that waste is not being processed by your liver and it acts as an irritant to your body causing insomnia. Your brain stays switched on… why??
Well the livers’ job is to store and to cleanse the blood. It’s the liver’s responsibility to process nutrients absorbed by the intestines so they’re more efficiently absorbed. The liver also regulates blood composition to balance protein, fat and sugar. Finally, it removes toxins from the blood, and breaks down both alcohol and medications.
The timing of the liver’s peak activity runs parallel with your timing in consuming the last meal of the day. It SHOULD be as early as possible for this very reason. The liver’s daily programming starts after an early dinner and then into bedtime.
When this organ(liver) is at its peak energy & production, the organ(gut) at the opposite side of the clock, 12 hours away, is at its lowest production and v.v. this means that between 1-3 am, the liver reaches its peak, doing its work to cleanse the blood, while the gut, the organ, responsible for the absorption and assimilation of many key nutrients, is at its lowest. Similarly for the gut just in reverse.
What does this mean? Basically, it means that you are taxing the system when it has to deal with late night meals and constant snacking. The body is not programmed to accommodate the modern habit of late-night continued stimulation and the eating habits that go with it. When we eat late at night, food is not well absorbed by the small intestine and the liver has little opportunity to do its job that the gut was supposed to do.
So other than doing lifestyle changes, it always a good idea to assist the liver in working optimally. How do we do this? Well simply put, cleanse it regularly. Do a liver flush; a type of a liver detox. You need 1 night and 1/2 a day to get the best results and to see the results. And believe you me the results are spectacular. Not just viewing the results as waste is dumped but the spike in energy thereafter is spectacular as well to say the least.
It is tough but worth it!! I know!! I try to do one every 6-8 weeks.
And if in doubt optimise functioning with a little milk thistle, dandelion tea or simply eating bananas. Remember this needs to form part of a lifestyle plan for best results optimally ongoingly!! Milk Thistle is almost like a ‘conditioner’ and with the work that the average liver needs to do with modern day toxic overload it probably needs a little help!!
