These may be warning signs from your liver

Liver is also called the ‘silent organ’ because it rarely shows signs of having problems and it is difficult to check in detail even in a medical examination. The liver is good at self-recovery so it fixes itself soon after taking alcohol, additives and drugs, but there are limits on how much it can fix.

The liver plays an important role in our lives

The liver resolves, synthesizes and stores the nutrients digested in the stomach, and provides them to our body in a useful form. One of its functions is to convert bad cholesterol in the blood into good cholesterol. In addition, the liver has more important roles such as breaking down harmful substances like additives and drugs and converting them into harmless substances, producing bile and synthesizing hormones. The liver has many roles in our body and is working very hard every day.


Things that put an additional burden on our liver

Drugs, alcohol, margarine (antioxidant), cup noodles, sausages (artificial colors), ham (additives), soy sauce (preservative), tofu (bactericide), and fish cake (preservative). Each of the above puts only a little burden on our liver but can cause significant damage if we consume them every day.


One important role for our liver is to produce bile

One important role for our liver is to secrete bile. Most of the bile produced by our liver is stored in the gallbladder. There are hormones that are secreted from the duodenum as food has contact with it. The gallbladder then secretes bile with the stimulus of the hormones. Then the pancreas produces pancreatic juice and the juice is combined with the bile, and finally they are sent to the duodenum. Bile acid contained in bile emulsifies fat, which improves digestive enzymes such as lipase. Therefore, it can be said that bile is very helpful for digestion and absorption.

What is a gallstone?

A gallstone is formed of hardened bile. Factors such as modern eating habits, fatty food, high cholesterol food, obesity and stress disturb the balance in the components of bile. As a result, cholesterol is crystallized into gallstone in our body. Other factors are overworking, drinking too much alcohol and a low fat diet, which uses less bile. As a result, the bile is left unused in the gallbladder or bile duct and is crystallized into gallstones.


Nothing can substitute the liver

Because the liver is responsible for many roles, it becomes complicated once the liver gets sick. If the liver gets very sick then it can lead to complications, which can be life threatening. If the stomach gets sick the small intestine can take over some of its roles but there is no organ that can take over the liver’s work.


Don’t miss the warning signs from your liver

We live in ‘the age of plenty’ so our liver tends to get overworked.

Good hints

① To have a good balanced diet.

② To eat foods that help ease our liver.




Customer’s Voice


What our customers are saying about Alco-Bio


When I take Herba’s Alco-Bio, I feel great the morning after drinking!

photo_alcobio_shiI’m quite sensitive to alcohol, but if I take Herba’s Alco-Bio I can enjoy a few drinks. Usually I take three tablets of Alco-Bio before drinking, and take another two if I drink more than usual. On one occasion I happened to be at an event where I drank all day long, but I didn’t have a hangover the next day because I took ten Alco-Bio tablets. That time I was really impressed by Alco-Bio.



Two years ago I was diagnosed with swelling in the cartilage of the first joint of my left ring finger, but as long as I was taking Herba nutrition I didn’t feel any pain and was even able to play golf. If I stopped taking it regularly it was sore to even hold a club, which really brought home to me the importance of nutrition. My father and brother also take Alco-Bio when they drink alcohol, and we use Herba’s nutrition to keep us all healthy.

My liver function value (γ-GTP) improved!

In a blood test ten years ago it was found that my γ-GTP was high so I had been taking medicine to treat that since then. However in an examination last year my γ-GTP was as high as 300IU/I, though it should be between 0 and 60IU/I. I was prescribed some medicine at the hospital and the γ-GTP temporarily decreased. Still, I was worried about the damage that the medicine might be having on my body so I started taking Herba five times a day. Because I was still worried about the side effects of the medicine I spoke to the Herba staff about my situation. They told me to take more Herba foods, for example two tablets of Alco-Bio at a time instead of one. As the result, the γ-GTP value improved. It was quite impressive to see how well Herba worked for me.
