So what's all this talk about this , this liver thing ?

Is it is it that important ?

Do we really need a liver ?

Yes , you need a healthy liver .

And the problem is the majority of population has a fatty liver .

And a lot of people don't even know that they have fat in the liver until they get an ultrasound or they get a CAT scan .

And then they're , they're shocked .

So I think it's number 1 important understand about the liver and the importances as well as how to get the fat out of the liver .

There's a great simple thing that you can do , which I'm going to talk about .

And there's also a drink that you can make every day to reduce fat on your liver and with some pretty good science behind it .

And I'm gonna put those links down below with each of the ingredient that I'm going to talk about .

The first thing I want to mention about , the liver is that people don't realize that bile is made by the liver , they think it's made by the gallbladder .

Now , the gallbladder is just a sack that holds the bile .

But I want to talk about the importance of bile for a second because the liver makes the bile .

And the more you understand about what bile does , you'll appreciate , the liver much , much more .

Now bile is a detergent that helps you break down fat .

But exactly what does that mean breakdown fat ?

Let's say for example , this is some fat , okay .

And this is traveling through the stomach , you just ate some fat , and it's going to be now going down into the small intestine .

So the stomach will kind of break it down to a certain level .

But then we need help from the gallbladder releasing bile to act on this , this big clump of fat .

Right ?

So the problem is that , bile needs help to break this thing down , and it uses help from the pancreas .

There's an enzyme and the pancreas called lipase .

Okay ?

Lipid meaning fat , ace meaning enzyme .

The problem is that in order for lipase to do its job , it needs the biles help .

And what the bile is going to do , it's going to break down this significantly so there's more surface area for the enzyme to act on .

So this is what bile does .

So the bile starts to break this down into small little pieces here .

So let me just kinda break all that down right here .

So now we have a much greater surface area of fat for the enzyme lipase to do its job .

Okay .

So simply bile increases the surface area of fat , so you can get more of a complete digestion of that fat in the extraction into the small intestine .

That's where it gets absorbed .

So without enough bile , then the enzyme can't do its job , And now you don't get enough vitamin a .

The first symptom of a vitamin a deficiency is like night blindness .

So you're you're driving at night , it's raining , and you just can't quite see .

It's hard to see at night .

Okay .

Night vision .

That's vitamin a .

I mean , vitamin a also , counters , bad sinus problems if you have an immune system issue .

So if you have really bad sinuses , chances are you could be deficient in vitamin a .

But vitamin a does a lot of other things as well .

Then we have a lack of vitamin e .

Well , that could show up in your heart .

So maybe you get more inflammation in the heart , in the , coronary arteries , which shows up as calcification , higher levels of cholesterol plaquing , things like that .

Other than that , it probably won't do anything else .

I'm being very sarcastic .

Then we have vitamin D .

Let's say you can't absorb vitamin D .

Well , that's a big problem because you need it for , getting rid of pain .

You need it for decreasing blood pressure .

You need it for the formation of calcium in your bones , and as well as the absorption of calcium in the small intestine .

So if you don't have vitamin D , the rate of absorption of calcium is like way , way lower .

With vitamin D , you absorb 20 times as much calcium as if you didn't have it .

So now you have all sorts of calcium problems like bone loss and problems sleeping at night and you name it .

Then we have vitamin k with vitamin k 1 and vitamin k 2 .

If you're deficient in vitamin k 1 , then you you get bruising easily .

You bleed easily .

You can't clot as well .

And with vitamin K 2 , a deficiency of that , you have a calcium building up in the arteries , as well as the joints .

Then we have , other fats like omega 3 fatty acids .

You need that to keep your inflammation really low .

And with fat enough omega 3 fatty acids , you have all sorts of inflammatory conditions , arthritis , heart problems , even dementia , because of the involvement in your brain .

Your brain apparently needs a lot of omega 3 fatty acids .

Now , the other thing that bile does is it helps get rid of the excess amount of cholesterol .

Let's say , for example , you decide that you're gonna lose weight and you get on the ketogenic diet .

And now all of this fat cell is releasing its triglyceride and its cholesterol .

That's what's in a fat cell , the combination of triglycerides , which is can be used for energy , and also cholesterol , which can't be used as energy .

So we need bile to help eliminate that excess amount of cholesterol .

So if you don't have enough bile , because you don't have enough capacity of liver function , then you end up with gallstones .

Gallstones are created by a super concentrated cholesterol situation because there's not enough bile to emulsify and break it down .

So we get this crystallization of cholesterol .

So when people have gallstones , they actually need more bile .

They don't need necessarily less cholesterol .

And then you also have people that are on statin drugs , which basically block the production of cholesterol .

And guess what bile is made out of ?

Cholesterol .

This is why the risk goes way up in getting gallstones and all these other issues if someone's on a statin .

And then the other big important , purpose of bile salts is to help eliminate toxins .

And now your body becomes instantly more toxic because you don't , you can't get rid of the toxins that are floating to the liver .

Because the purpose of the liver is not to store toxins .

It's to break down toxins into harmless particles .

So if you can't break them down , then , and you're taking medication and you're being exposed to planet Earth , boy , you get a lot of extra poisonous things that are flooding to the bloodstream and to your body .

So we really need this liver to work correctly .

Another symptom of a fatty liver is that , you start getting a heavier liver , it becomes enlarged .

And that pressure , doesn't fit in the cavity anymore on the right side .

So it backs up and it puts pressure into the right side of your neck up to here to the shoulder .

So you get shoulder pain .

You get a lot of tension in your right trap , and that can create a fullness underneath the right rib cage is one of the symptoms .

And , you know , people say , well , I need to , flush out my gallbladder .

Well , you know , you need to get rid of the fat in the liver .

It's a little bit different than fleshing out , anything which I'm gonna explain .

The other important part about the , the liver is its conversion function from t 4 to t 3 , your thyroid .

Without a good liver , you can't convert the thyroid hormones .

So you might have hormones there , but they're not activated because they can't be converted .

80% of all the active form of t three , the thyroid hormone , works through the liver .

So without that liver fully functioning , maybe you get , 70 or 60 or 50 percent of it being converted .

And here you are wondering , why do I have a thyroid problem , there's no reason to have a thyroid problem .

The problem is not the thyroid , it's your liver , it's the conversions .

Okay .

Very important .

The other very important function of the liver is to buffer , certain excesses of , sex hormones , like estrogen and testosterone .

It's not good to have too much testosterone or too much estrogen .

And so without the liver working right , you cannot form the proteins to buffer those hormones .

And so then we have , issues like , polycystic ovarian syndrome in women , which is , too much androgen .

And we also have too much estrogen in even men .

They start getting all sorts of problems with , breast tissue and low testosterone .

And the list goes on and on and on .

Now , because I talked a bit more on bile , I do wanna mention some other symptoms to , to try to identify if you have low bile .

Okay .

Number 1 , do you have an intolerance to digesting fat ?

When you eat fat , do you find that you get more bloating ?

That would be an indication that you need more bile .

Do you find that your stool is light colored , like pale or even gray , Or does it float ?

Or does it leave skid marks ?

That could mean that you're low in bile .

Do you find that after you eat , you're just not satisfied ?

Well , maybe because you're not extracting the fats to be absorbed to then tell the brain like , okay , I'm done eating .

That could be a sign that you need more bile .

If you have , nausea or you have indigestion or bloating , those can be signs , bloating , burping , belching are classic signs of low bile as well .

Alright , so now that you have some basics on the liver and the importance of bile , Bile is really important into keeping the fat out of the liver .

So anything you can do to increase bile reserves is going to help you get rid of a fatty liver .

So some people even take purified bile salts .

And I did put a link down below for more information on that .

But today I want to talk about , a really simple shake you can make to to help reduce fat on your liver .

Now , I just want to let you know that being on the ketogenic diet , as well as doing intermittent fasting together can reduce the fat on your liver by 50% in just 14 days .

If you haven't seen that video , I put that down below .

So I just wanted to give you that foundation first because it's essential to go on keto and you're doing intermittent fasting if you have a fatty liver .

But this shake I'm gonna talk about next is a really simple thing everyone can do to keep fat off your liver , and it's backed by some pretty good science .

So the ingredients are simple .

You're gonna use kale , you're going to use blueberries and you're going to use kefir .

Okay ?

I would use organic kale and organic blueberries and I would keep them in the freezer .

Okay , keep them in the freezer , they're much easier to blend .

So you just take your blender out , and you take 2 cups of kale frozen , and you can break it up into little chunks .

Just put 2 cups of kale in there because it blends really nicely when it's cold and it tastes better too .

And then you put 1 cup of blueberries .

Blueberries not only have quercetin , but so does kale .

Quercetin is the ultimate , weapon against a fatty liver , not to mention its involvement in many other aspects of your health , including having a stronger immune system .

But quercetin is a is a fabulous phytonutrient to target a fatty liver .

But there's many other things in kale and blueberries that also help you with fatty liver and liver function in general .

So we take 2 cups of frozen kale .

Okay , put in the blender , we take 1 cup of frozen blueberries , okay , we put a cup of water .

And we also put 1 cup of plain whole fat kefir .

Okay , don't get the flavour kind don't get the sweetened kind .

Get the organic if possible , grass fed if possible , whole milk , plain kefir , that's going to give you the probiotics that you need to reduce fat on your liver .

So we have the water , the kefir , the cow , and the blueberries .

And then you're gonna simply blend this up for a couple of minutes .

Okay ?

And blend it up really nicely and then shug it down .

It tastes really good , and it's extremely effective in reducing fat on your liver and do that every single day in combination with a healthy keto diet , as well as intermittent fasting .
