How Benefits Herbal Remedies For Liver?

Liver is responsible for digestion of food, hormone production, metabolism, detoxification of the body, maintenance of the volume of blood, regulation of the factors affecting blood clotting, production of bile juices and regulation of glucose, cholesterol and proteins. Liver also produces enzymes and proteins which make new tissues and repair the damaged ones. Cirrhosis, fatty liver, fibrosis, hepatitis, jaundice, hepatoma, cholestasis, and cancer are some of the diseases that affect liver.
