Can Sweating Up Detox Liver?
It is not unusual for people to have a misconception that sweating can bring out toxins and unwanted substances. The truth is sweating is not much more than one of the body’s temperature regulation mechanisms. Sweat is released to cool our body back down when our body senses we might be overheating. Sweat is mainly composed of water and a bit of salt.
Although sweating is not a direct detox mechanism, exercising is an excellent way to eliminate toxins. But how? The answer is simple. Exercise gives us a healthy liver!
Our livers work very hard to filter and detox our blood. Almost all the blood will pass through our liver! Although the liver has stronger regeneration power than other organs, it is not invincible. A very common damage to liver health is the build-up of fat in liver cells. It can lead to scarring of liver tissue eventually and bring serious health consequences.
In such cases, exercise is typically helpful. Research suggests that an exercise routine, whether aerobic or resistance training, reduces the amount of fat in the liver. Even without shredding pounds, reduction of liver fat is still observed.
In other words, regular exercise keeps the liver healthy and ensures it can work best for longer. In this way, our detoxification mechanism is supported! Don’t wait for Monday! Pick your favorite exercise and support liver health now!
