If you are struggling with poor digestion, acne, hormone issues or are thinking about transitioning off of hormonal birth control, your liver health should be a top priority.

 

Our liver plays a very important role when it comes to detoxifying our bodies and if it isn't functioning optimally we can start to notice many different symptoms.
 
 
Potential symptoms of a sluggish liver:
