The liver is one of the most important organs in the body. It is constantly cleansing your blood; maintaining your blood sugar levels; digesting fats, proteins, and carbohydrates; and producing bile and other enzymes…amongst many other functions (like storing vitamins, minerals, and glycogen). Once white adipose tissue has too much in storage, excess fat builds up in the liver, and eventually in arteries and organs. The liver is the primary metabolic factory in your body. Once it starts becoming clogged with fat, metabolism goes away at the primary point of calorie distribution for your body. This causes many problems, including a higher risk for cardiovascular disease.
