6 All-Natural Nutrients to FIGHT Fatty Liver Disease
Silent but deadly. That’s how I’d describe an “invisible” disease that’s skyrocketing across the nation right now.
Cases of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) are through the roof.
And the condition drives up your risk of dying from ALL causes, including the usual suspects like heart disease and cancer.
NAFLD is frightening because many folks have it without a single obvious symptom. And, of course, that means it can silently worsen without you even knowing you’re sick.
Diet changes can slash your risk. Cutting back on carbs, ditching soft drinks, and avoiding added sugars are a great start.
And then be sure to add in some regular exercise. But don’t stop there!
For some extra protection, consider these six all-natural nutrients, which are PROVEN fatty liver fighters.
In the past, a liver disease diagnosis was almost always linked to alcoholism. But the rise of the unhealthy Western lifestyle has changed that.
These days NON-ALCOHOLIC fatty liver disease has taken over the top spot.
Poor diet and lifestyle choices lead to fat building up in the liver. This interferes with the hard-working organ’s many tasks, including food digestion, energy storage, and toxin removal.
Left untreated, the condition can progress to fibrosis, cirrhosis, and hepatocellular cancer.
NAFLD is most often associated with obesity. And over 50 percent of folks with type 2 diabetes and metabolic syndrome will go on to develop the disease.
After making some lifestyle changes to get the condition under control, consider these six supplements for some extra support.
A study found that taking a daily probiotic along with omega-3 fatty acids for eight weeks reduced liver fat, improved serum lipids, and reduced inflammation in people with NAFLD.
Curcumin supplements improve metabolic markers in patients with NAFLD. Plus, the spice extract impacts liver enzymes in folks with NAFLD, an indicator of the condition’s severity.
Drinking coffee is linked to a lower incidence of fatty liver. Coffee is a natural antioxidant and may help halt the inflammation that’s thought to contribute to NAFLD. Plus, animal studies show that coffee affects pathways in the gut and liver in ways that could head off NAFLD.
Milk thistle extract, or silymarin, has been used to treat liver conditions for ages. In studies, silymarin reduced markers of disease in patients with NAFLD. In fact, the extract may be MORE beneficial than the drug metformin. Plus, in one study taking milk thistle three times a day for 48 weeks reduced liver fibrosis in participants.
- Vitamin D
Low vitamin D is associated with NAFLD. But boosting vitamin D levels significantly improve metabolic, chemical, and inflammatory markers of the disease.
- Vitamin E
Vitamin E supplements significantly improves liver function in people with NAFLD. Plus, it improves abnormal liver enzyme levels.
