I confess that out of all the tricks of the digestive system, liver flushing is my favorite. It fascinates me. The more I study it, the more it surprises me with its capabilities.

The liver may be compared to an intelligent “central processing unit” that filters, controls, and cleans a liter and a half of blood per minute and simultaneously processes around 500 vitally important biochemical metabolic reactions. Some of these processes involve the division and breakdown of chemical substances (catabolism); others, involve synthesis (anabolism), primarily of protein.
