Supplementing for Liver Health is Vital
Environmental toxins are a major concern in our modern world, and sadly they are unavoidable. Pesticides and other pollutants sprayed on crops don't just affect the food we eat, they contaminate the air we breath and leach into our drinking water. Even when choosing organically grown crops, the soil is almost always contaminated with these harmful chemicals, organic soil is becoming a rare commodity.
Our body cannot keep up with the increasing toxic burden of our world. Environmental toxins aside, it also has to deal with the endogenous toxins that are a byproduct of cellular energy production. Pharmaceutical medications can also impair liver function, with an enormous amount of the population taking some sort of medication, if not many, this is a problem.
Comment: In addition to environmental toxins, the spiraling consumption of dietary sugar has caused non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, which barely existed three decades ago, to become the most common liver disease in America.
Eating healthy is important for our health, but it isn't enough to maintain optimal liver and cellular function anymore. The foods we eat just don't contain the same nutritional value as they did even 50 years ago, making it virtually impossible to achieve the recommended nutritional intake through diet alone. This is where supplements come in, they have become a necessity in this day and age.
