5. Removes of Toxins
The liver receives blood through the hepatic portal vein. It, then, takes any toxic substances and effectively renders them harmless. From there, the liver ensures that these substances are taken to the organs that excrete them from the body.
This organ further filters excess hormones, such as estrogen and aldosterone, from the body, also sending them to the organs that successfully eliminate them from the body and its systems. Ultimately, this prevents imbalances, disease, and dysfunction.
6. Synthesizes & Regulates Various Hormones
The liver plays a major role in ensuring your body is functioning as it should, including synthesizing certain hormones. Your hormones act as regulatory substances that stimulate or inhibit specific functions. In fact, the liver is involved in the balance of your sex hormones, thyroid hormones, angiotensinogen hormone, and more.
