What are the worst foods for your liver?

Added sugar and High Fructose Corn Syrup

 To make them taste better processed foods are usually loaded with added sugar and High Fructose Corn Syrup. According to the American Liver Foundation Up to 25% of all people in the U.S. are believed to have non-alcoholic fatty liver disease. Part of your liver's job is to covert sugar into fat, high blood sugar increases the fat build up on the liver. When 5% to 10% of the liver's weight is fat it affects its ability to function normally, mostly common in people who are overweight, obese, or have type 2 diabetes. Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease is the most common cause of chronic liver disease in the United States. Stay away from sugary foods and drinks such as fruit juices, soda, candies, cookies, and doughnuts.

Fried foods are high in fat and calories  

Ever wonder why fast food restaurant fries are so tasty and golden crisp?

Not only is salt added to the fries but sugar is added to. Part of your liver's job is to convert sugar into fat. Before fries are cooked in saturated fat oil they are soaked in sugar water which results in the fries being golden crisp. Saturated fats have a negative effect on your liver as it works harder to detoxify the body and over time becomes inflamed, which can cause scarring of the liver known as cirrhosis. Another unhealthy condition side effect is elevated bad cholesterol and lowered good cholesterol. Eating fried foods is a poor choice when to come to keeping your liver healthy. 

 

Sodium plays a key role in your body.

 A normal amount of sodium helps to maintain fluids in your body and normal blood pressure. If you are a healthy adult the American Heart Association recommends a daily consumption of less than 1500 mg or 0.75 of a teaspoon, which includes the sodium already in your food, Some research indicates that in addition to damaging the liver, over-consumption of sodium also contributes to high blood pressure, Keep in mind that salt is 40% sodium and 60% chloride. As 40% of salt is sodium, you can actually eat 2.5 times more salt than sodium. Canned foods, including soups, canned meats or vegetables, and your alcohol cocktails can be high in sodium. Eating too much salt can make your body retain excess water.
