Did you know that the liver is not only the largest solid organ in the body, but it is also the largest gland? Maybe, but what we bet you didn’t know is that the liver carries out more than 500 individual roles in the human body. Not only that, but it is the only organ that can regenerate itself. And while that is certainly impressive, it is no excuse for causing harm to your liver, especially if you know that your habits are hurting it.
So what are those habits? Glad you asked!
Few things are as good as an adult beverage after a long day. It helps to relax, take the edge off, and usually forget if ever so briefly about the problems of the day. However, it should be understood that while drinking in moderation is fine, alcohol is still the most harmful element for your liver. So while a glass or two is completely within reason, going overboard on a regular basis can cause damage that not even your liver can bounce back from.
