The liver is one of the most important organ in our body. Not only it process fats but produce hormones in our body that can influence our mood, digestive system and definitely our weight.. The liver is the organ in charge of producing and processing fat. When fat is not processed it is accumulated in the abdominal periphery. The liver get overload of fat when we do not mind what type of foods we eat or when we drink too much alcohol or consuming other type of substances.

A sick liver can increase risk of gallbladder stones, ulceration complications due to the high levels of bilirubin, diabetes and overweight.

The main function of LEPTIN is to tell the brain that you have enough fat stored and that you do not need extra calories to burn (food). LEPTIN is also commonly know as the "satiety hormone" because is the hormone of controlling desires to eat.
