Support Your Liver Over The Silly Season

As a holiday mantra “eat, drink and be merry” has a great ring to it. What’s the year-end festivities, social get-togethers, celebratory parties, long weekends, and holidays, if not to feast on the food, alcohol, salty snacks or treats, fizzy sodas, energy drinks and sugary beverages with family, friends, colleagues, and loved ones. And while occasional overindulgence shouldn’t be cause for concern, it’s important to consider the role of your liver in managing all the excessive alcohol, tobacco, caffeine, sugar, salt, fats, and preservatives coming its way whilst you enjoy that fourth atomic jäger bomb shooter or a third bowl of double-cream Belgian chocolate ice-cream for the day.

Overeating, binge drinking, excessive smoking, lack of sleep, dehydration, and even stress puts additional strain on the liver and over-working the liver for a prolonged period may cause it to be overloaded and to function sub-optimally, which in turn means it has difficulty breaking down, detoxifying, and removing all the toxic waste, pollutants, and harmful chemicals from the body.

This is the reason why after you have overindulged, you may experience early warning signs or symptoms from your overburdened liver such as nausea, loss of appetite, fatigue, weakness, generally feeling unwell, bloating, gas, stomach pain in the upper right side of the abdomen, and jaundice, or yellowing of the skin and eyes. Is your liver in distress and crying out for help? 1
