Fat Metabolism in Liver
- The build-up of excess fat in liver is due to inability of liver to breakdown and metabolize fats.
- It is NOT a life-threatening disease, but, sometimes it may cause inflammation. An inflamed liver can hardened over time. This will cause liver failure.
- Causes of accumulated fats in liver:
High Fat Diet
WAYS TO IMPROVING LIVER FUNCTION
- Healthy diet (try incorporating GTF into your daily diet)
- Regular exercise (minimum 30 min daily)
- Limit & if possible, avoid alcohol
GTF is an excellent dietary chromium-containing supplement that is clinically proven to serve as a hepatoprotective agent for better liver health.
- Reducing glucose (“sugar”) & fat level in the blood & liver
- Reduce inflammation
Journal of Life Science (2009): It is confirmed that chromium group confirmed it can raise the antioxidant capacity in liver thus protecting it against cell damages. Besides, it also helps in reducing inflammation and speeding up the recovery of damaged cells. While concurrently regulating blood glucose and fat metabolism, it also reduces the burden of liver by reducing the sugar and fat, thus improving the function of liver.
Journal of Biochemical and Biophysical Research Communications (2010): Dietary Chromium supplementation prevented progression of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) and the beneficial effects were accompanied by reduction of hepatic triglyceride accumulation, elevation of hepatic lipid catabolic enzyme, improvement of glucose and lipid metabolism, suppression of inflammation as well as resolution of oxidative stress.
