Bel Marra Health, who offers high-quality, specially formulated vitamins and nutritional supplements, is reporting on new research that says the value of a healthy lifestyle on liver function is becoming increasingly important.
As Bel Marra Health reports in its article (http://www.belmarrahealth.com/general-health-2/avoid-weakening-your-liver-function/) for decades research has supported the thought that liver health depends largely on lifestyle. Whether it’s a healthy diet, participating in regular exercise, getting enough fresh air, and avoiding unhealthy vices, it has been heavily implied that lifestyle can determine the long-term outcome of liver function.
Gastrointestinal specialists say the standard American diet is not very good for the liver. Fast food is a no-no. A recent U.S study shows that fast food consumption can lead to a condition called, “fatty liver”. The research demonstrates that after just 4 weeks of consistently eating fast food, there are big changes in the liver; changes that resemble hepatitis and can lead to liver failure. Eating foods that are rich in flavonoids, iron, magnesium, selenium and B-vitamins is a way to ensure good liver health.
These nutrients can help your liver detoxify the body. Consuming more fruits, vegetables, beans, seeds and nuts can help to achieve better liver function. Foods rich in antioxidants such as, broccoli, cabbage, and brussel sprouts can help stop free radicals and help detoxify the body.
Over the last few years more research says that carbohydrates are a killer. Too many carbs are causing fatty build-up in the liver of thousands of Americans. This can lead to liver dysfunction. According to a study by UT Southwestern Medical Center, cutting carbohydrates is more effective in reducing fat in the liver than reducing calories.
The study, published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition did point out that if a doctor says that fatty build-up in the liver is an issue, most of the damage can be reversed within a month by changing eating habits. The key is to catch the problem.
One of the leading causes of liver failure in both the United States and the United Kingdom is drug induced liver problems. Drug induced liver injury is caused by either physician prescribed medications, over-the-counter medications, illegal drugs, over-use of vitamins and herbs or even environmental toxins. Long term use of medications when closely monitored by a doctor shouldn’t cause problems, but when directions are not followed properly serious problems can arise.
Misuse of acetaminophen is one of the biggest causes of drug induced liver injury in the U.S. Studies show that 50 per cent of excessive drinkers experience some or all of the symptoms associated with alcohol induced liver damage.
