Give Your Liver a Little Love – Understanding Liver Health
The liver is one of our most vital organs, so taking proper care of it is equally vital. The liver is the body’s leading toxin-removing organ and plays a pivotal role in metabolism. Nearly everything you consume or put into your body, at one point or another, is processed by the liver. The liver, however, is susceptible to damage from a range of diseases that can decrease its function and ultimately lead to liver failure.
Join us for this noontime webinar to learn how to maintain liver health based on the latest science. We will discuss the new, lower guidelines for daily alcohol intake for liver health, weight-related metabolic liver problems, including fatty-liver disease, and viral infections of the liver, including viral hepatitis and COVID-19. You will also learn lifestyle changes you can put in place today to improve your liver health and increase your overall well-being.
