In small amounts, acidic foods like sugar, food additives, meat, rancid oils, trans fats, and fried food can be handled by your body’s detoxification systems like the kidneys as well as its mineral reserves – Over the time, acidity can have many damaging effects on the body.
Though our body is like a chemical factory, most of us do not know how the body works. Worse of all, many people unknowingly torture their own body cells everyday.
Are you one of them?
Caring for your liver
Take liver for example. Why do you need to sleep before eleven at night? This is because from eleven at night to three in the morning, your liver undergoes detoxification processes.
According to medical research, when you are standing, the rate of liver blood flow is three times lesser than when you are lying down.
Your liver organ is like a chemical factory almost 1.5 kg in weight. It can accommodate almost 500 types of chemical reactions.
When you are growing and participating in activities, your body produces various chemical reactions that require detoxification. There are more than 2,000 types of chemicals in your body and liver can produce about 1,000 types.
When toxins enter your body, your liver will automatically undergo detoxification process through chemical reactions. Some heavy metals and bacteria from the intestines will be excreted via the bile.
This operation is indeed a very complicated process. Man-made organs such as man-made lungs and kidneys can function more or less like the natural organs. However, man-made liver cannot function like natural liver to perform hundreds of chemical processes.
