Liver Health: How it affects your brain

Liver Health: How it affects your brain
A:

The liver is a multitasking organ that is responsible for more than 500 essential functions. Two of the main functions of liver are detoxification and energy generation. The liver cleanses or filters blood by breaking down alcohol, drugs and other chemicals, and by neutralizing and removing toxins and poisonous substances. The liver also helps to provide the body with energy, and regulates the supply of body fuel. It is responsible for producing, storing and supplying glucose, i.e. energy, to keep us mentally and physically active. [1]

 

The liver is like a filter, when it has to process excessive amounts of toxins such as alcohol, drugs and unhealthy foods, its effectiveness lowers and as a result blood quality decreases. When the liver is not functioning at its best, not only are its own functions affected, other organs and functions in the body are also negatively impacted e.g. digestion, blood sugar levels, immunity, the heart and brain.

 

Among all organs, the brain is one that can be seriously affected by decreased liver function. The brain requires a lot of blood flow to function; therefore it is one of the first organs to be affected by increased toxins in the bloodstream. In addition, brain functions require a large amount of energy. The brain consumes approximately 30 percent of our caloric intake. When the liver’s energy production function is impaired, there may not be sufficient fuel for optimal brain function. [2]

 

Liver diseases can have serious effect on brain function, as harmful chemicals which are normally eliminated from the body by the liver can accumulate in the blood and pass through to the brain, causing brain damage. This is called hepatic encephalopathy (brain damage caused by the liver). Some of the symptoms include fatigue, behaviour changes, brain fog, poor sleep and slow speech and movement. Some people may also experience trembling hands, depression and anxiety. [3] Hepatic encephalopathy is particularly common amongst chronic alcoholics and patients with cirrhosis. [4] A study by the Scripps Research Institute also suggested that the liver, rather than the brain, is the source of the brain plaques associated with Alzheimer's disease. [5]

 

Blood runs through our whole body, carrying nutrients to all organs, therefore blood quality is important as dirty blood can affect their normal functions. To ensure high blood quality, the liver’s ability to detoxify and produce energy must be well protected. YHK, a natural liver therapy from Japan, supports the liver and provides protection against liver diseases. It has been scientifically proven to protect and enhance regeneration of healthy liver cells and recovery of damaged liver cells. Its anti-inflammation and anti-fibrotic properties can help to decrease the risk of liver diseases and liver failure. [6] In addition, YHK has been proven to enhance the immune system and have inhibition effect on cancer cells. [7] By ensuring liver health and optimal liver function through the use of YHK, health can be achieved in the long run.

In 2010, some 4.7 million people aged 65 years or older lived with Alzheimer's disease in the US.   Alzheimer’s is a common brain disease that causes progressive brain cell death that happens over a course of time. It will also cause a shrink in brain size as the tissue has progressively fewer nerve cells and connections. Alzheimer’s is thought to be caused by Protein Plaques building up in the brain cells, these Plaques are found between the dying cel

There are between 10 to 15 million patients in the U.S. with NASH, and among these patients, one-fifth to one-fourth are at risk for cirrhosis or chronic liver damage.   The major characteristic of NASH is fat in the liver, along with inflammation and damage. NASH can be severe and can lead to cirrhosis. The number of NASH cirrhosis patients is currently on the rise, and it is predicted (NAFLD & NASH) to be the number 1 cause of liver transplants by 2020.
