Strengthen your Liver with Silymarin

The liver is a very important organ next to the brain. As our body's chemistry factory and second most complex organ, this glandular organ performs many vital functions to manage our nutritional needs. It is vital for survival.

While detoxification is the liver’s most important function, the liver also plays an important role in metabolism, blood sugar control, elimination, digestion and diet. It cleanses the body of damaging toxins before it enters the bloodstream. As the body’s natural purifier, it already deals with a lot of free radicals in its detoxification function so when a person eats too much meat the excessive amount puts a great burden on the liver causing impaired liver function.

While the liver is the only human internal organ capable of natural regeneration of lost tissue, we should arm our bodies with a way to combat the stressors and toxins around us by taking in supplements. Almost every organ in the body is supported by the liver hence it is also prone to many diseases. The most common liver diseases include alcohol damage, fatty liver, cirrhosis, cancer, cancer, drug damage and hepatitis A, B, C, D, E infections.

Fat may sometimes accumulate in the liver of people who drink little or no alcohol. This abnormal accumulation of fat in the liver cells or Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease (NAFLD) may cause the liver inflammation and scarring.

In 2010, Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease (NAFLD) prevalence in the Philippines was measured at 17.2 percent. The risk factors of NAFLD include Diabetes, Obesity, High fat diet, and certain medicines.

Pharmaceutical company, Trianon International, re-introduced Silymarin as its once-a-day food supplement for liver care. Silymarin can be taken to manageliver diseases specifically the NAFLD.

Silymarin is a unique flavonoid complex that contains silydianin, silychrisin and silybin, derived from the milk thistle plant - which carries the scientific name Sylibum Marianum. The milk thistle plant has been gaining popularity in the mainstream culture and fitness scene for quite some time, and it is mainly used for liver disorders. It is the number one recommended plant extract for the protection and detoxification of vital liver functions.

Dr. Katherine Arupo-Reyes recommends the use of liver protective supplements such as Silymarin, lifestyle modification such as regular exercise, eating in moderation, and avoiding fatty food, soda and sugar to manage NAFLD. "The first line treatment would depend on what is the cause. If the cause is obesity, weight reduction and exercise should be recommended. Sometimes, we will refer them to nutritionists for proper guidelines. If he has fatty liver, SGPT and the SGOT is high, that's the time we give hepatotrophic agents for whatever its worth".

I have chosen to spoil myself with the Cool Breeze package. Priced at P 700, it consists of Manicure, Pedicure and Foot Spa with Seaweed Wrap.

Comfy chairs in turquoise hue against a white backdrop createsa relaxing atmosphere for clients 

Pampering starts with a foot soak in warm water.  The attending staff moves on to give me a scrub to remove calluses.  Feet and legs are dried with a towel after rinsing. Then she applies the pinkish seaweed lotion on both my legs and feet, seals it with a plastic stretch film and wraps both legs in a dry towel for 30 minutes.

The nail technician starts working on my hands. The nails are trimmed, shaped and buffed. After the cuticles were cut, she applied a base coat, my chosen ORLY polish plus a top coat.

After the manicure, she goes on to remove the seaweed wrap and rinses my legs. The seaweed wrap made my legs velvety to touch!  Now, she goes on to do pedicure.

Get your hands and feet pampered at Nail Cocktales Blue Baywalk. It will surely be an awesome nail spa experience!
