2:20 Tips to maintain liver function

How much liver does a person need to function normally and maintain normal liver function? You actually only need 25% of your liver to maintain normal function. The liver is very robust. Apparently, we can live without about 75% of the liver if necessary. However, of course, this isn’t ideal. 

You might think you can eat whatever you want since you don’t need all of your liver to survive. However, pushing the limits could lead to needing a liver transplant or needing a living liver donation. Both of these options come with many hurdles and potential side effects. 

However, if a person gets a new liver and the liver is not rejected by the body, it can actually regenerate at an accelerated rate. The liver is the only visceral organ that can regenerate. 

Tips to help maintain liver function:
• Avoid triggers that can cause liver damage 
• Establish a new eating plan (the healthy keto liver body type plan)
• Do intermittent fasting 
• Take key nutrients (vitamin D, tocotrienols, bile salts, and probiotics)
