Detoxing is something your body does all the time. But sometimes the detox system needs a little boost. Your liver is a vital part of the detox process. If it does not function well, toxins accumulate and your health declines.
Liver performs many important functions in keeping you healthy so give it the support it needs.

Adrenals and Liver
Liver is the second largest organ. It detoxifies chemicals. It also produces bile which helps carry away waste and break down fats. And it plays a part in the immune system too. Additionally it serves as a storage for vitamins and minerals.
Adrenals produce the stress hormone, cortisol. This important hormone affects liver function. In the early adrenal fatigue stages the high cortisol promotes fat deposits in liver. Thus the liver function is compromised and toxin levels increase.
In the later adrenal fatigue stages the cortisol levels drop which also has a negative impact on your liver.
Liver problems also seem to go hand in hand with multiple chemical sensitivity. I had a severe sensitivity to chemicals. Everything made me sick.
Liver and Acne
I had never had problems with acne but all of a sudden I began to get pimples on my chin, forehead and the sides of my face. Around that time I had some labwork done and my liver enzymes were high: AST 84 U/L and ALT 172 U/L. My liver needed some serious help.
I began taking Liver Support II (recommended to me by my integrative doctor). And within a month my liver enzymes went back to normal and my skin cleared up.
A few months later I noticed the pimples coming back. I went back on the Liver Support II for a couple of months and the pimples disappeared.
Since then (it’s been four years as of 2017) my liver enzymes have been good and I have not had problems with skin breakouts. Well, an occasional hormonal thing.

Listen to Your Body
As always, listen to your body. Don’t overdo detox. If you have adrenal fatigue, it is important to practice caution with detox. It can crash your adrenals. I didn’t have that problem with Liver Support II though.
