The liver is one of the body's most important organs. It helps to protect other organs from toxic compounds by filtering your blood to remove toxic substances you consume or inhale. It's also involved with immune function by helping fight off infections and blood clotting. The liver produces bile, enzymes, and insulin, which are essential to breaking down the food you eat.
A Poor Functioning Liver Has Serious Consequences
A poor functioning liver can contribute to mood disorders and is associated with mental health. It can develop scar tissue from damage, become inflamed or depleted, or fall victim to a number of diseases.
When your liver struggles to function, you may feel it in your body's overall health. According to the MayoClinic, these are the symptoms of poor liver function:
- Skin and eyes that appear yellowish (jaundice)
- Abdominal pain and swelling.
- Swelling in the legs and ankles.
- Itchy skin.
- Dark urine color.
- Pale stool color, or bloody or tar-colored stool.
- Chronic fatigue.
- Nausea or vomiting.
If you experience these symptoms, you'll want to seek medical attention immediately as poor liver function can cause serious permanent health issues.
How Moringa Supports Your Liver Health
We've already documented how moringa can help support your heart, your joints, & your digestive health, but it can also protect and support your liver as well. In fact, there are four primary ways moringa helps to support a healthy liver:
1) Reduces Liver Damage
Several studies have shown that moringa can protect and help reduce liver damage. While studies have been primarily done in animals, researchers believe humans still likely experience the same benefits.
2) Restores Liver Enzymes
Liver enzymes are needed to carry out various important functions related to digestion, waste removal, & more. One study found that moringa could effectively restore healthy levels of liver enzymes so that the liver could operate more efficiently.
3) Reduces inflammation
Inflammation is the root cause of a significant portion of disease and internal organ damage. Moringa is one of the most powerful anti-inflammatory compounds available, with over 40 antioxidant compounds and dozens of anti-inflammatory agents.
Moringa helps to protect the body from inflammation and when already present - it helps to remove inflammation. This enables the liver to perform its' main important bodily functions, which likely will improve your overall health.
4) Helps Balance Hormones & Reduces Stress
Ask any of our customers that drink our moringa tea and they'll tell you, moringa can be an effective stress reducer. Moringa tea in particular, has natural calming & stress reducing effects, although all forms of moringa can possess these abilities.
Moringa's anti-inflammatory nature helps protect the pituitary & adrenal glands, which create hormones. These hormones affect your mood, digestion, metabolism, energy levels, and just about everything else.
Keeping a healthy hormonal balance helps prevent stress, which in turn protects the body from experiencing a "stress response" in the form of damaging inflammation.
