ARE YOU CONSIDERING GOING KETO?
If you are, be sure to consider a liver support product. Your liver plays a crucial role in fat metabolism and human protein creation, both of which are essential aspects of the ketogenic diet.
Some people suffer digestive upset when they begin eating the ‘keto way’ because of the sharp increase in fat intake. In order to avoid this, it’s important that your liver is in tip-top shape.
Normally, glucose is the primary source of energy for the body, when you eat carbohydrates the liver breaks them down into glycogen and this is stored in your muscles and in your liver. This energy supply is used by the brain and body when needed.
When you eat a high-fat and low-carbohydrate diet, your blood glucose levels become low, and fatty acid levels become elevated. As this happens your liver produces ketone-bodies that become your primary source of fuel.
So, your liver is not only working overtime to metabolize the increased fats your taking in through your diet but is also producing ketone-bodies to provide you with an alternate source of energy.
Did you know that the liver is essential for building lean muscle mass?
When you eat protein, it breaks down into amino acids and nitrogen. When you go to the gym and work your muscles, your muscle cells spill out amino acids that circulate through the blood. Both the amino acids from your food and those from the muscle cells get transported to the liver. In the liver, nitrogen is essential to create more human protein, but if too much nitrogen is lost through your waste products, such as your urine, your liver can’t do its job!
