Protect your liver as you prepare to party

As the party season approaches it is important not to abandon your health in favour of a good time!

Drinking enough water every day is essential for a healthy liver, and keeps your whole body functioning at peak performance. Besides preventing dehydration, consuming a sufficient quantity of water is also necessary to help your loyal liver fulfill its duties.

Your liver is the largest internal organ in your body and performs more than 400 tasks to keep your body running smoothly. It removes or chemically alters toxic substances that you ingest, such as drugs and pollutants. Your liver also turns food into nutrients, produces proteins for blood clotting and stores vitamins and minerals for your body to use in the future.

Water is largely responsible for the fluid content of blood. As the liver filters your blood, its viscosity impacts the liver’s detoxification abilities. Accordingly, not drinking enough water will increase the blood’s thickness and make it harder to filter.

Dehydration can make your liver less efficient in filtering out toxins like alcohol, leaving you more vulnerable to poisoning. In fact, you will have a higher blood-alcohol concentration if you drink alcoholic beverages without getting enough water.

If you don’t drink enough water, the following possible consequences may result:
• You may not get the full benefits of the healthful nutrients ingested.
• Toxins will build up in your body, which can hinder kidney, liver and bowel function.
• You are more likely to quench your thirst with beverages full of sugar, questionable chemical additives or calories.
• Your cognition might be impaired and leaving you feeling foggy and sluggish.

To avoid all of these dangerous symptoms it is best that you drink around 8 glasses of water each day to keep your body adequately hydrated. Aussie Natural’s water comes in a huge range of uses from 600ml bottled water to 15L water cooler bottles. There’s something for everyone!
