Despite reduced disposable incomes, consumers are putting their confidence in nutritional supplements and other condition-specific health supplements to maintain health and avoid the high cost of conventional healthcare.
However, alcoholism, consumption of fatty food and ill-supervised medications are rampant in society today. In addition to these maladies, a constant attack from toxic substances like pesticides, industrial chemical residues, synthetic hormones and preservatives on our bodies have taken a toll on the well-being of the nation.
An international survey conducted reveals that alcoholism in Sri Lanka is rated as the second highest vice in the region and it has become imperative for one to be accountable and act responsibly for the sake of loved ones and dependants. The much misunderstood and under-rated organ that is under heavy attack is the liver which performs more than 500 functions each day to keep the body healthy.
The basic functions are aiding digestion of food and vitamins, distribute nutrients found in food, purifying blood and removing toxins while fabricating vital proteins that affect the blood, converting food into nutrients the body can use, storing fats, sugars, iron and vitamins for later use by the body and producing proteins needed for normal blood clotting.
The WHO estimates that over 10% of the world’s population has liver diseases such as Hepatitis, alcoholic and non-alcoholic liver disorders leading to cirrhosis or liver cancer. In Sri Lanka, the bulk of liver related deaths occur due to high alcohol consumption making Sri Lanka only second to France in terms of liquor consumption. Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease is another common condition which is fast becoming a major public health problem due to the rise in obesity levels.
Livolin Forte – a supplement introduced by Mega Lifesciences – can play a major role in reducing the ill-effects and help promote rejuvenation of the liver.
