A few things need to be made clear as to why detoxing our environment can help boost our metabolism. First, everything we breathe or put into or onto our bodies needs to be detoxified and processed by our liver. This means fragrances, lotions, air sprays, residues from plastics, non-stick cookware, etc all need to be broken down and detoxified. What organ in our body gets the awesome task of doing this? That's right, it's your liver. If you think about how much of this sort of stuff we come into contact with on a daily basis, that means our liver has to do a ton of work all the time! Poor liver.
But detoxifying our body is not the only this our liver is responsible for.
Here’s what else our liver does:
1.) Makes thyroid hormone (which helps determine how fast our metabolism is)
2. ) Packages up the nutrients and cholesterol we eat and ships them out to our bloodstream to be used by other parts of our body
