How Does The Liver Affect Hormones?

Hormones are substances that are normally associated with the endocrine system, and these chemicals are involved in literally all metabolic processes in the body both on cells and tissues. In fact, life would not in itself be possible without the presence of hormones.

The liver is one of the hardest working organs in the body and a healthy liver is important for many aspects of wellness.  Most people are aware that the liver is the body’s main filter.  It is true that play an important role in the management of nutrients and removing wastes from the body, but did you wonder if the organ is also a key player in the process of hormonal regulation in the body?

Hormones are substances that are normally associated with the endocrine system, and these chemicals are involved in literally all metabolic processes in the body both on cells and tissues.  In fact, life would not in itself be possible without the presence of hormones.

How does the liver, the hormonal system?

Although the liver can not really do most of the hormones – and it is mainly the work of various endocrine glands – the liver is how many hormones are synthesized.  This means that the liver is like a laboratory in which hormones are released in conjunction with other compounds, and the body is able to obtain essential nutrients and other ingredients that are necessary for us to flourish.  In a way, the hormones are agents that make life that gives possible chemical reactions, and much of this activity occurs in the liver.

The liver secretes hormones or waived in the blood in different parts of the body to call them.  Thus, the liver as a hormone reservoir that is available to provide the necessary hormones at appropriate levels where necessary.  Some of the important activities of the metabolism that is made possible by these secretions is the right level of blood sugar, levels of amino acids, circulatory functions, strengthen the immune system, blood clots and the formation of bone marrow, among many others.

hormone suppression is one of the main tasks of the liver.  As the body filters many impurities and toxins from the body, also sees hormones useless outside the body, mainly through urine or bile.  These rights of emissions and disposal, as well as compromising the regulatory function of the liver hormone.

This regulation of liver function is essential for both women and men to maintain adequate levels of hormones in the body.  Here are some specific types of hormones that are regulated by the liver:

* Estrogen.  One of the main female sex hormone estrogen levels balanced is important for many reproductive functions.  In women, if the liver is unable to eliminate excess estrogen can cause malfunctions, such as abnormally heavy menstrual bleeding, cysts, breast pain and gain unwanted weight in the midsection (hips, thighs and buttocks).  This increase in body weight can produce a “bulb” or the “gynaeoid” as it is called officially.  Too much estrogen is a very unhealthy, which may increase the risk of heart disease, cancer, reproductive harm and other serious health problems.
* Testosterone.  This is another important hormone (even for women), and also maintains a satisfactory level of efficiency in the liver.  Women have testosterone levels are too high to grow unwanted hair on the face, have concerns such as acne or oily skin or ovarian disorders such as polycystic ovary syndrome.  They can also gain experience with an emphasis on upper body, the development of an “apple-shaped” body type “robots.”
* Insulin.  Produced by the pancreas, insulin is a hormone primarily involved in regulating blood sugar and metabolism in general.  It also helps control the level of fats and carbohydrates in the body.  Again, the liver is responsible for regulating insulin levels.  If this is not done properly (usually because of toxic liver) can lead to excess insulin.  This can lead to increased risk of diabetes and other debilitating conditions.
