- Is losing weight hard for you even when you eat reasonably well?
- Are you tired even when you get enough sleep?
- Is it hard for you to focus
- Does depression creep into your life even when things are going pretty good?
Many people think their sluggish metabolism, lack of energy, trouble staying focused, and lack of joy are “part of getting old.”Rubbish!
If you’re in your 30s, 40s, 50s, and even older you should not feel horrible all the time.As you’re about to discover your liver can be secretly causing these problems…
The medical community calls Fatty Liver Disease a silent epidemic.
Harvard Medical School says up to 20% of Americans have a fatty liver.
Most of the time Fatty Liver Disease goes undiagnosed because the symptoms mimic health issues many folks blame on exiting their teens and entering into adulthood.
You know what we mean, when people say things like “I don’t have the energy I had back in high school.”
What causes a fatty liver?
A fatty liver is typically caused by drinking alcohol or a poor “Western diet” that we’ve been conditioned to eat.
As fat begins to overtake your liver this vital organ is no longer able to perform its job of detoxifying your blood and regulating your metabolism.
Toxic waste that should be broken down by the liver floods your body. It can enter the brain and cause a disease called “Hepatic Encephalopathy” which can affect your mood and ability to concentrate.
One of your liver’s primary functions turning food into energy.
When fat deposits start to build up in your liver it struggles to perform like it should and the food you eat starts getting stored as fat instead of turned into energy.
If the food you’re eating isn’t properly metabolized by your liver it doesn’t matter how “clean” or healthy you eat – you’ll always feel burned out.
If you’re dropping a fortune on grass-fed meat and organic fruits and veggies and not feeling a difference, it could be a sign you need to give your liver some care.
Do you have sugar cravings that gnaw away at you until you’re forced to give in to sweet temptation?
Even tiny sugar cravings can sabotage your diet. Ravenous sugar cravings can literally be a death sentence.
Good news… Researchers have discovered something residing in your liver that has the ability to shut down sugar cravings.
It’s a hormone called fibroblast growth factor 21 or “FGF21” for short.
FGF21 tells the brain to cut off sugar cravings. With a simple signal from this magical hormone your body instantly says “no more sugar”
This is a big deal…
For the first time a single process has been discovered in the liver that stops sugar cravings.
As Matthew Potthoff, an assistant professor of pharmacology at the University of Iowa puts it, FGF21 “shuts off that reward pathway.”
Wouldn’t it be nice to have a healthy liver sending out the FGF21 hormone and shutting down your sugar cravings?
This is one of the ways nursing your liver back to health helps you automatically lose weight and protects you against diabetes without willpower.
Smooth, Clean Energy Bursting From Every Cell In Your Body
The artificial boost of energy you get from stimulants like coffee creates a nervous rush.
It also triggers the release of a stress hormone called cortisol that can cause anxiety.
Using stimulants for energy is like plugging your nervous system into an electrical socket and shocking your body to keep it alert.
It might do the trick, but at what cost to your long-term health?
Wouldn’t it be better to heal your liver so that your body becomes better at producing its own energy?
When you get rid of the built up fat that’s stopping your liver from doing its job your metabolism will function like it should and supply your body an abundance of fresh energy.
Natural energy generated by your body is smooth not jittery.
It gives you the ability to power your body and mind without burning you out the way stimulants do.
