The liver is a fascinating organ and in order for our bodies to function optimal we need to keep it healthy ! Let us now focus on the metabolism of proteins.
Your liver is the main organ responsible for detoxification. Let’s have a closer look at how to maintain and support your liver.
It seems like a good idea to DETOX – don’t you think? But what does it mean? Surely it is a good thing to get rid of unwanted chemicals in the body.
You might think that it is as old as you are, but it is not. Most of your body is completely regenerated on average every 8 years. Your small intestine is regenerated every 2-4 days, and your liver is completely regenerated (new) every year.
We have established that our body needs nucleotides.
Nucleotides are the basic building blocks of our genetic material. Every time a cell divides nucleotides are needed. Weather it is an immune cell that needs to duplicate and then divide in 2 in order to join in the fight against bacteria and viruses.
Remember that we said earlier about being what you absorb and not what you eat? Let’s continue along those lines…
The surface area of an average human’s skin is approximately 1.5 – 2sqm, the surface area of the lungs are 50-75sqm and the surface area of the villi,
The clever people say that you are what you eat, but the wise say that you are what you absorb
Are you preparing your gut lining for maximum absorption, making sure your gut lining is healthy and has no interruptions (leaky gut) ?
Would you like to boost your immune system? It sounds like a great idea but it’s more important to maintain and strengthen your immune system by providing it the correct vitamins like the B-Vitamins, Vitamin C and E which are powerful anti-oxidants.
We have touched on what Nucleotides are and why they are important to us. The next element is where we get Nucleotides from.
Nucleotides are finally being recognized as essential nutrients needed for the production and repair of all cells in the body.
