Podcast #57 – How To Increase Metabolism By Cleansing Your Liver

May 28, 2019

Most people don't think about liver health to increase metabolism, but the liver is responsible for helping metabolize fat, produce bile and clean toxins. All of these functions contribute to converting food into energy.

In fat metabolism the liver cells break down fats and produces energy. It also helps insure that the level of sugar in your blood (aka blood glucose) stays constant.

Bile is primarily well-known as a digestive secretion that helps to digest fats. Bile also breaks down nutrients from food to produce energy and converts inactive Thyroid Hormone (T4) to active T3 that the cells can use.

And when harmful toxins and substances enter your bloodstream, your liver acts fast to detoxify and destroy them.

In today’s podcast, we discuss 10 ways to cleanse your liver naturally to increase metabolism. 

I am going to begin this 2-3 week liver cleanse to increase metabolism on June 3. Hope you can join me. Please join our health and wellness community on Facebook to take part. Or join our private group.

  1. Hello,
    My name is Hannah and I’m from the Yorkshire Dales in England. I have been a vegan for nearly three weeks and listen to your podcast everyday to learn how to be the best version of me.
    I am going to do the Liver Cleanse starting April 1st, I think you should relaunch it this year as the pubs are closed for Covid-19 and there is no excuse not to have the time to make new recipes.
    You have inspired me massively and helped me see that my new eating habits have touched my soul and made me a more conscious, compassionate person in a matter of weeks.
    Thank you

    1. Hi Hannah – Thank you so much for your listening and for your kind generous words. I really appreciate it! Hope you like the liver cleanse and hope those pubs open soon. Stay strong and well!
