Located below the diaphragm and weighing more than 3 pounds, rests your largest internal organ. The liver. It is bigger than your brain, consists of 96% water and we cannot live without it. “Anything that is eaten or consumed, whether it’s food, alcohol, medicine, or toxins, gets filtered by the liver. Once we ingest food, it is digested by the stomach and intestine, gets absorbed into the blood and goes to the liver.” (healthblog.uofmhealth.org)
It is important to protect the liver and to help it detox when possible. Drugs and alcohol are known to cause cirrhosis of the liver. Fatty Liver Disease and Hepatitis may also cause life-threatening damage to the liver.
The liver has over 500 essential functions and is a vital organ in our body.
- The liver removes toxins out of the body through urine and stool.
- The liver knows when to store nutrients and when to release them back into the body.
- The liver produces bile which helps to break down and absorb fat.
- The liver makes and stores energy.
- The liver detoxifies chemicals and metabolizes drugs.
- The liver makes proteins important for blood plasma and other functions.
- The liver filters the blood that comes from the digestive tract, before it hits the rest of your body.
The liver and the neighboring organs work as a team, but when the liver is not working properly, you can begin to see signs of liver failure. Here are some signs to look out for:
- Abdominal pain and swelling.
- Itchy skin.
- Skin and eyes appear yellowish.
- Swelling in legs and ankles.
- Tendency to bruise easily.
- Loss of appetite.
- Nausea or vomiting.
- Chronic fatigue.

If you are experience some liver damage, it can sometimes be reversable. Here are a few things you can do to repair your liver.
- Change your diet. Healthy foods like coffee, tea, grapefruit, blueberries, beetroot, pears, and grapes are great for your liver.
- Stop drinking alcohol.
- Detox your liver.
HB Naturals has an essential oil that can help detox your liver.
HepaDetox is a blend of essential oils that are known to help the liver detox and also to regenerate and rebuild liver cells. The liver must deal with everyday toxins such as drugs, alcohol, food additives, and any other poisons that find their way into the digestive system along with toxins that we breathe in or are exposed to through the skin.
Hepadetox works because of these three highlighted ingredients:
- Carrot Seed has diuretic and purifying properties that make it an excellent detoxifier and liver support. It is extremely helpful in fighting jaundice and hepatitis, being most effective following, rather than during, an illness as it aids in regeneration by stimulating the growth of new cells and tissue.
- Peppermint encourages bile formation, which is essential for optimal fat metabolism, while regulating the liver.
- Lemon encourages bile secretion, aids liver function, and helps to decongest.
