It never seems like we have enough time in the day between balancing work, family and friends. Your liver’s probably the last thing you think of. But everything you eat and drink, including medicine, passes through your liver. It’s the liver’s job to rid your body of any harmful chemicals. If you don’t take care of your liver, it won’t do a very good job of taking care of you. There’s nothing tricky about keeping your liver healthy, it’s all about living a healthy lifestyle. Here are a few tips that can help you take care of your liver from Himalaya Herbal Healthcare.

Look Out for Certain Medications
You may not realize that some medications may hinder your liver performance even if they’re prescribed. There are some over-the-counter medications, such as cholesterol drugs, that will list side effects that can negatively affect the liver. This issue is not limited to pharmaceutical drugs. Even common painkillers, like acetaminophen, can hurt the liver if too much is taken. The tip here is to always be aware of what you put in your body, and be sure to openly talk to your doctor or pharmacist about how the medicines you take may affect your liver.
Move Your Body
That’s right, it’s time to start exercising! Since it’s the livers job to store and process your blood while removing harmful chemicals, increased circulation allows for it’s cleansing powers to operate better. During physical activities the heart is pumping more blood and the liver is allowed to more easily release blood to our brain and muscles. Exercise also helps circulate blood to the digestive organs to improve healthy functions. An active body is a healthy body!
