Your liver is one of the hardest working parts of your body. It’s literally keeping you alive right now.
But you probably haven’t thought about this often-overlooked organ even once this past week. Heck, your liver may not have even crossed your mind in months.
It’s time to change that. Because this unsung hero is under assault right now.
In fact, the liver is quietly becoming a major source of chronic health problems here in America and other parts of the Western world.
Liver problems are becoming so common that Big Pharma executives—never ones to pass up a potential cash cow—are working on meds to treat them at this very moment.
They see it as their next potential goldmine. So I’m guessing they’re also hoping you don’t see the latest liver research.
Because it reveals one simple way, you can protect this vital organ entirely on your own. No drugs needed.
THIS blood fat helps protect your blood filter
You know how badly the filter on your air conditioner or vacuum cleaner gets all gunked up. Pretty gross, right?
Now imagine a similar but unreplaceable filter in your own body that has to pull toxins and other junk out of your blood.
Well, that’s pretty much what your liver is. But given all the junk we’re exposed to in modern life—especially in our food—our poor livers are working harder than ever before.
And, frankly, they can’t always keep up.
All of those toxins produce an inflammatory compound called lipopolysaccharides. Also known as endotoxins, lipopolysaccharides lead to liver inflammation and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, which is quietly becoming a leading source of chronic health problems in the United States.
But the new study finds a surprising solution. It’s a form of cholesterol that can help protect the liver from that inflammation.
Animal tests found that HDL3 can slip into the liver through the portal vein, which is how most blood enters the organ.
Once inside, however, it doesn’t get filtered out. It gets to work, instead.
The HDL3 joins forces with a protein, and together the two head out on a mission. Their goal is to hunt down those inflammatory endotoxins and pull them out of the liver before they can trigger that inflammation.
Raise your HDL to reap the liver benefits
This was a study on mice, of course. But the researchers believe it’s a sign that HDL3 might be a future treatment for liver problems and even liver disease in humans too.
But why wait for the future? You can raise HDL3 right now and perhaps get all that protection and then some.
It’s easier than you think. Most of your HDL is already HDL3, so raising one will also increase the other.
For example, olive oil—especially extra-virgin olive oil—can raise HDL. Plus, at least one study found it can also enhance the antioxidant and anti-inflammatory powers of that HDL at the same time. Talk about a GOOD side effect.
You can cook with olive oil, drizzle it on salads, and toss roasted veggies in it, and so much more. I’ve even read some people put a little on their ice cream (seriously). You’ll have to let me know how that goes if you ever try it.
About 2-4 tablespoons of olive oil a day should help bump up those HDL numbers.
Fatty fish, coconut oil, and even some decadent dark chocolate can also help boost your HDL to protect your liver. A daily walk will help too. Plus, you’ll find even more HDL-boosting tips right here in this free report.
