In this video, we’re going to talk about your liver. Many people think that the liver stores toxins—your liver does NOT store toxins.

The liver works by filtering out toxins—but it does not store them. Instead, it converts toxins into non-toxic particles. This is a process called biotransformation.

Many toxins are fat-soluble. Through the liver’s phase 1 and phase 2 detoxification mechanisms, your body converts fat-soluble toxins into water-soluble toxins.

Rather than store these neutralized toxins, your body gets rid of them through your urine and feces.

So when you come into contact with drugs, alcohol, poisons, pesticides, etc., your liver neutralized them first and then pushes them out of your body.

Cruciferous vegetables actually help support the liver’s natural phase 1 and phase 2 detoxification stages by stimulating enzymes. Other types of vegetables do not have the same effect.

The liver does store nutrients, including vitamins B12, A, D, E, and K, along with iron, copper, and folic acid.
