Functions Of The Liver

  1. Circulation: The liver stores and helps in regulating blood. It is thus responsible for nourishing the body.
  2. Excretion: Liver helps in the formation and secretion of bile and is thus useful in digestion and cleansing of the blood. It also helps remove ammonia from the blood.
  3. Metabolism: It helps in the metabolism of proteins, lipids, carbohydrates, minerals, and vitamins.
  4. Protection and detoxification: It has an active role in natural detoxification and removes impurities from the blood.
  5. Production: It plays an important role in the formation of serum albumin, glycogen, urea, and blood coagulating proteins such as prothrombin, heparin, and fibrinogen.
  6. Regulation of hormones: Estrogen and androgen are both growth hormones that stimulate cell division. Improper liver function could elevate these hormones in the blood, which may lead to abnormal growths such as ovarian cysts, uterine fibroids, endometriosis, breast cancer, breast cysts, and prostate cancer. Excessive estrogen may cause painful menstruation.
