One of the most important yet often overlooked major organs of our body is our liver. It detoxifies our blood, synthesizes essential proteins, and produces chemicals that are needed for digestion. It also plays a key role in the production of certain hormones and the storage of glycogen, which serve as our long term energy stores. As important as our liver is, though, it can be vulnerable to damage and disease brought about by a large number of factors. Viral infections, and hepatoxic chemicals absorbed through the consumption of large amounts of alcohol, food toxins, environmental factors, and even the very medicines we take can all harm our liver in the long term, leading to potentially dangerous conditions later in life. These hepatoxic chemicals lead to the formation of lesions on our liver, which can over time severely impair its functions. Fortunately, there is an effective and all natural remedy for this kind of liver damage: Moringa.
Moringa has been observed by scientists to contain unique compounds and enact mechanisms that help purge the liver of these toxins and even reverse the damage that they cause. Silymarin is a flavonoid or specialized molecule found in moringa that has been shown to help reduce the effects of hepatoxins on the liver, improving its resiliency. It also protects the liver from the toxic effects of rare earth metal salts such as praseodymium, cerium, and indium, which are known to cause the degeneration of the liver. Scientists theorize that moringa somehow causes the body to get rid of these poisonous compounds in a more rapid manner. This same mechanism also helps make moringa effective against several known poisonous compounds such as a-amanitin and phalloidin. Moringa prevents such toxic cell damage from occurring in two ways. First, it somehow alters the composition of our cell membranes, which only allow a small amount of toxin to seep into our cells. Secondly, the same cell regeneration mechanisms that moringa employs to reduce aging also ensures that there is a large number of healthy cells to replace those that do succumb to the toxins.
Moringa has also been observed to be an effective treatment against a wide array of liver diseases, such as both chronic and acute hepatitis, cirrhosis of the liver, fatty degeneration of the liver, and the metabolic liver disease brought about by alcohol and drug use. This is because moringa not only stops the toxicity that causes these diseases, but also helps reverse it. On its own, the liver is a very resilient organ, able to regenerate its cells and grow back even after over half of it is destroyed or removed. Moringa accelerates this regeneration process by about four times the normal speed, eventually helping the liver regain full functionality.
The best part about moringa is that as an all natural health food, it can be used in conjunction with medication, and even help enhance its effects. The drugs and medication we normally take can place a lot of toxic stress on the liver, which prevents its optimum recovery. With moringa adding an additional layer of protection for the liver, these drugs can now work faster and more effectively. Moringa is safe for consumption for people of all ages. By adding some moringa to your diet, you can enjoy all of its other benefits of improved nutrition, a more youthful appearance, and the knowledge that your body is well protected against whatever toxins we may encounter in the air, on our food, and in the water.
