The liver is responsible for detoxifying our body. Not only medicines, poisons and alcohol afflict it, so does inappropriate food with excessive levels of protein and lack of exercise. So, it is not just too much alcohol which gives rise to bad liver values.
If toxic metabolic products are insufficiently excreted due to liver function disorders, they can also damage brain metabolism and its signaling substances. This starts to be felt, for example, as
- lack of drive
- lengthened reaction times
- concentration and memory disorders
Such symptoms often occur long before a liver function disorder can be verified by means of blood liver values.
