Disinfection of toxins is a function of the liver
Toxins and mucus that are released into the circulatory and lymphatic systems, as soon as the detoxification regime is turned on, should be neutralized and removed from the body. Why? Because they contain free radicals - electrically charged molecules, which, upon contact, corrode tissues and damage cells. In addition, they disrupt various functions - cell division and reproduction, hormone production and release - and receptor sensitivity. As already mentioned above, they affect even the manifestation of genes. Since toxins, especially man-made ones, like fats, lingering without neutralization for a long time in the blood and lymphatic systems, they find fatty tissues and are introduced into them. Their main goal is the brain, a significant part of which are fats.
Not surprisingly, neurological disorders are a consequence of accumulation of toxins.
Because fat is difficult to get rid of (as everyone knows), the released toxins must be converted from fat-soluble molecules to molecules that are soluble in water and which are easier to remove from the body. The liver plays the main role here. The chemical reactions of detoxification occurring in the liver are carried out in two phases. In the 1 st phase, the structure of the neutralized toxin changes, and it is converted into an intermediate metabolite. In some cases, this intermediate product is more toxic than the toxin from which it originated. Intermediate metabolite should be transferred as soon as possible into the 2 nd phase of hepatic detoxification, where its toxic properties are neutralized and it turns into a water soluble product that can be directed back into the circulatory system and through its vessels to the kidneys.
The kidney cells recognize it, take it from the bloodstream and remove it to the urethra along with the urine.
To perform detoxification, the liver needs energy and constant supply of antioxidants (to neutralize free radicals) and other minerals, vitamins and nutrients. If all this is available, detoxification is accompanied by success.
The transition between phases occurs so quickly that the intermediate compounds do not have time to escape. However, if the liver does not receive such support, the implementation of the 2nd phase is under threat. Partially transformed toxins return from the liver back to the circulatory and lymphatic systems and through them further to the tissues and cells that damage, re-infiltrating them. Other organs that perform detoxification may try to make up for this failure, but none of them has the capabilities of a liver. Different systems undergo a series of stresses, resulting in an even greater strain on the body. Knowing this, you will understand why fasting itself, although it speeds up the removal of toxins from tissues, can be harmful to health. It blocks access to the body of nutrients that facilitate the implementation of the processing and neutralization stage, which should then occur.
You will see the beneficial effect of detoxification in the third week: the skin will become shiny, the whites of the eyes will become whiter, the clothes will sit on you more freely, and friends will be wondering if you were on vacation and whether the face lift

Disinfection of toxins is a function of the liver
- Functions of the liver Synthetic function
The liver synthesizes: - Many high-molecular proteins, which have the main role in maintaining the oncotic blood pressure, and they are the main carriers of bilirubin, some hormones and a number of drugs. Therefore, liver disease leading to hypoalbuminemia, can cause peripheral edema, ascites, hydropericardia and hydrothorax (anasarco), so
- Laboratory evaluation of liver function
Unfortunately, the sensitivity and specificity of most of the laboratory tests used for liver function is not very high. For example, the serum aminotransferase concentration reflects the integrity of hepatocytes more than the function of the liver. Only two standard tests allow to evaluate the synthetic function of the liver: serum albumin concentration and prothrombin time (PT). With cirrhosis
- Digestive system. Liver function
In pregnancy, hypotension of the gastrointestinal tract is noted as a result of the corresponding neurohormonal changes, and as a result of topographic influence from the uterus increasing in size. The enlarged uterus causes displacement of the stomach and intestines. The stomach, unlike its natural horizontal position, acquires an upright position, shifts to the top and
- Structure and function of the liver
For a proper understanding of hepatobiliary pathology, knowledge of the anatomy and ultrastructure of the biliary tract of the liver is necessary (Figure 7-1). Hepatocytes are located in a single row, forming a dense cellular plate. Hepatocytes are separated from the bile capillaries by the basolateral membrane, and from sinusoids - sinusoidal. Due to the difference in the structure of the sinusoidal membrane and the membrane facing the bile
- Vascular functions of the liver
Regulation of hepatic blood flow In normal hepatic blood flow in adults is about 1500 ml / min; 25-30% of it is provided by the hepatic artery and 70-75% by the portal vein (Figure 34-2). The need for a liver in oxygen is 45-50% satisfied by the hepatic artery, for the remaining 50-55% - portal vein. The pressure in the hepatic artery is equal to the systemic arterial pressure, while the pressure in the portal vein is <10
- DISTURBANCY OF THE FUNCTIONS OF THE LIVER AND BREATHING WAYS
The liver plays a leading role in the metabolism of proteins, fats, carbohydrates, hormones, vitamins, minerals, and many exogenous compounds. In the liver, the synthesis of albumins, fibrinogen, prothrombin and some other factors of blood coagulation occurs, heparin, a- (3- and (partially) globulin, a number of enzymes are produced.) The liver carries out the synthesis of glycogen, its deposition and decay
- Disorders of liver function in the postoperative period
Dysfunction of the liver is not so rare in the early postoperative period and can occur as a transient enzyme or liver failure of varying degrees. Actions of surgeons can cause compression of the biliary tract or hepatic ligament, leading to liver ischemia. Most often this is a consequence of the long standing turnstile on the hepato-duodenal
- Effect of anesthesia on liver function
Hepatic blood flow During regional and general anesthesia, the hepatic blood flow decreases. This effect is mediated by various factors, including the effect of anesthetics, the nature of respiratory support, and the type of operation. All inhalation anesthetics reduce blood flow in the portal vein. The most significant decrease is caused by halothane, the least pronounced is isoflurane. Moreover, isoflurane is

Jaundice and dysfunction
- Diseases of the liver and biliary system. Hepatitis. Cirrhosis of the liver. Liver cancer. Cholelithiasis.
1. A woman of 40 years complains of weakness, jaundice. In the anamnesis for 2 months. before the disease - blood transfusion. The examination revealed an increase in the liver, an increase in the level of hepatic transaminases. Conclusion 1. steatosis of the liver 3. mechanical jaundice 2. Botkin's disease 4. acute viral hepatitis 2. Viral hepatitis C is characterized by 1. high frequency of chronization 2. parenteral transmission 3.
- Weakness of the liver, blockages in it and all that is associated with pain in the liver
Weakness of the liver Galen says: "Liver is a person whose liver actions are weak in the absence of an external cause - a tumor or ulcer." In fact, liver weakness accompanies liver disease and [occurs] either from a disorder of simple nature without matter, or from [disorder] with matter. The source of [the disorder] is either the liver itself or other
- Liver cirrhosis ("curing" of the liver)
Causes Inflammation or poisoning of the liver, resulting in healthy cells degenerating into scar tissue. With the development of pathology, the liver decreases in volume, the number of healthy cells decreases, the portal vein that carries blood from the digestive tract narrows. As a result, blood pressure in the liver rises, fluid accumulates in the abdomen and possibly varicose veins in the esophagus.
T-2-toxin is a product of the life of fungi of the genus Fusar-ium, so until the late 60's the toxicoses caused by this mycotoxin were diagnosed as fusarotoxicoses. Many authors have been studying the fusarotoxicosis in our country (A.X. Sarkisov, 1948, MI Salikov, 1956; NA Spivtseva, 1966; IA Kurmanov, 1960-1971, etc.). A fusariotoxicosis clinic was described in a large
- What is a toxin?
Toxin is something that disrupts the normal course of physiological processes and has a negative effect on the body's functions. Toxins are divided into many different types, having completely different properties, originating from many different sources and possessing different mechanisms of destructive effect. Regardless of how you feel about this problem, knowledge of what is
- BACTERIAL TOXINS
Classification of bacterial toxins. Louis Pasteur in 1887 conducted experiments proving that substances that are formed as a result of the life of microorganisms and are found in nutrient broth, you can cause the same clinical signs of the disease, as well as when infected by the causative agent of the disease. E. Ru and A. Yersin in their experiments in 1889 confirmed this conclusion.
