05 Apr Taking a Closer Look at Your Liver and Its Functions
Weighing in at around three pounds, the liver is a large and meaty organ situated at the right side of the abdomen. Reddish-brown in color, this important organ feels rubbery to the touch. Of course, most people are not going to actually touch their own liver, as the organ is safely tucked away behind the rib cage to offer it additional protection. Here, it rests near to the gallbladder as well as with parts of the pancreas and intestines, allowing the organs to all work together to digest, absorb and process the food that you eat.
Your liver itself is also divided into two large sections, aptly named simply the right and left lobes. These lobes work together to help the liver perform its main function, which is to filter the blood that comes from the digestive tract before allowing it to pass through the rest of your body. As the blood passes through the liver, it also detoxified chemicals while metabolizing drugs, during which time it also secretes bile back to the intestines. While performing all of these others tasks, the liver also makes proteins that are necessary for blood clotting and other bodily functions.
While the liver does an amazing job completing all of the tasks that it is assigned to do, it is also important to take steps to help your liver and to keep it as healthy as possible.
