1 BEAN…HEAL the LIVER and Keep it Clean | Dr. Mandell

Coffee lowers the risk of liver conditions including fatty liver, fibrosis (scar tissue that builds up within the liver) and cirrhosis. Drinking coffee can slow the progression of liver disease in many patients.

The major functions of the liver include:
-Bile production: Bile helps the small intestine break down and absorb fats, cholesterol, and some vitamins. Bile consists of bile salts, cholesterol, bilirubin, electrolytes, and water.
-Absorbing and metabolizing bilirubin: Bilirubin is formed by the breakdown of hemoglobin. The iron released from hemoglobin is stored in the liver or bone marrow and used to make the next generation of blood cells.
-Supporting blood clots: Vitamin K is necessary for the creation of certain coagulants that help clot the blood. Bile is essential for vitamin K absorption and is created in the liver. If the liver does not produce enough bile, clotting factors cannot be produced.
-Fat metabolization: Bile breaks down fats and makes them easier to digest.
-Metabolizing carbohydrates: Carbohydrates are stored in the liver, where they are broken down into glucose and siphoned into the bloodstream to maintain normal glucose levels. They are stored as glycogen and released whenever a quick burst of energy is needed.
-Vitamin and mineral storage: The liver stores vitamins A, D, E, K, and B12. It keeps significant amounts of these vitamins stored. In some cases, several years’ worth of vitamins is held as a backup. The liver stores iron from hemoglobin in the form of ferritin, ready to make new red blood cells. The liver also stores and releases copper.
-Helps metabolize proteins: Bile helps break down proteins for digestion.
-Filters the blood: The liver filters and removes compounds from the body, including hormones, such as estrogen and aldosterone, and compounds from outside the body, including alcohol and other drugs.
-Immunological function: The liver is part of the mononuclear phagocyte system. It contains high numbers of Kupffer cells that are involved in immune activity. These cells destroy any disease-causing agents that might enter the liver through the gut.
-Production of albumin: Albumin is the most common protein in blood serum. It transports fatty acids and steroid hormones to help maintain the correct pressure and prevent the leaking of blood vessels.
-Synthesis of angiotensinogen: This hormone raises blood pressure by narrowing the blood vessels when alerted by production of an enzyme called renin in the kidneys.

    Please be aware of all the excessive refined processed sugars. Too much sugar will get converted into fat and will cause a fatty liver. Be aware of eating a very healthy diet. Blessings. 😊

  • Adlih Kristopher says:

    Good morning Dr Mandell. Thank you for being a blessing in our lives. Have a great day ❤

  • Rick Cormier says:

    I started enjoying a hot cup of coffee loaded with cream and sugar in my 30’s. For various minor health reasons, I made adjustments over the years and now look forward to my 2-4 cups of black half caffeine coffee in the morning. I usually use an Aeropress to make my coffee and look forward to mostly filtered coffee. I also drink my iced and hot tea, both black and green, with no creams or sweeteners.

  • Mariza Ayala says:

    I’m drinking my black coffee ☕️ right now 🥰 no matter how many people say it’s bad I’m still drinking it but not all day just the morning and sometimes a latte in the afternoon

  • xx Hamburgboy says:

    I appreciate your great videos very much Dr. . Thanks for helping us to be aware of the hazards of unhealthy nutrition in our modern life.🙏😊

  • Blue Haired Witch says:

    I was diagnosed with fatty liver two years ago. My liver doctor had said that drinking coffee could be beneficial but that to be really effective you needed to drink a lot of coffee – four to five cups a day. It also needed to be the caffeine stuff, not decaf. Unfortunately for me, I loathe coffee and this wasn’t for me. Iced coffee in the summer is about all I can stomach. Instead, I make a point of drinking dandelion root tea. I just got a followup scan and it helped! There’s still room for improvement but it’s great how small dietary changes can make big changes.

    • Corinne Yeager says:

      Thank you‼️‼️‼️
      Don’t like coffee either 🤮
      I know a yard FULL of dandelions and no artificial crap too‼️thank you again❣️

    • J Franklin says:

      The dandelion tea was probably even better for you, but most people find it easier to drink the coffee. (Look at all those Starbucks.)

  • BabyBear says:

    I completely cut out coffee and alcohol 12 days ago and drink black tea now. 2 cups during the day and switch to herbal after 5 pm and I feel great! And have lost weight ☺️

  • Green Sombrero says:

    it would be interesting to see a comparison of how the world makes coffee – and its influence on health. I like Greek coffee – I like Mexican coffee – Brazil too and Peru/Colombia – Italy probably the best in the world to me – Scandinavians drink a lot of coffee – Finnish people a boat load.
