The liver is a marvellously resilient and vital organ that plays an indispensable role in nurturing and protecting your body every day with clockwork precision. It has several key functions to perform - it helps filter and dispose toxic materials from the blood, feeds your body the energy it needs to function, wards off infections, produces blood-clotting factors, regulates sex hormones, cholesterol levels and vitamin and mineral supplies in your body. The liver performs over 500 and odd functions, far more than any other organ in your body.
