"Liver" comes from the Old English word meaning "life." Length and quality of life depend on proper liver function. A typical four-pound liver manufactures 13,000 different chemicals, maintains 2,000 enzyme systems, filters 100 gallons of blood daily, and produces 1 quart of bile daily. It sits on the right side of your abdomen under your ribs. You cannot survive more than 24 hours without a functioning liver. These facts make us aware of how important it is to support the liver's detoxification pathways.
