Experts warn: fatty liver is becoming an “epidemic”! What are the signs and natural solutions?
Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease is nearing epidemic proportions. Studies show that 20-30% of Western population has already been affected. Since the phenomenon of fatty liver is closely connected to the development of type 2 diabetes, abdominal obesity and hypertension, the future doesn't look too bright.
Fatty liver disease damages the liver, preventing it from removing toxins and producing bile for the digestive system. When the liver is unable to do these tasks effectively, it puts you at risk of developing other problems throughout the body.
Recognise the symptoms
Fatty liver disease is known as a silent disease - you may not feel any pain at all.
Keep an eye out for the following symptoms:
- Abdominal fat
- High level of cholesterol and triglycerides
- Lack of energy
The most important therapy for fatty liver is a healthy diet
A healthy diet that helps stave off fatty liver disease includes a wide variety of foods. There are many lists of specific foods that should be eaten, and foods better avoided.
Check out the most accurate and updated list with what you should and should not eat if you suffer from fatty liver:
- FRUITS: fresh and dry fruit
- VEGETABLES: fresh vegetables, vegetable juices, chestnurs, fresh mushrooms, cabbage...
- DAIRY PRODUCTS: non-homogenized milk, probiotic yogurt, kefir
- GLUTEN-FREE GRAINS: buckwheat, quinoa, millet, amaranth, oats, rice...

But sometimes just eating the right food is not enough!
Changing eating habits helps and protects the liver, but, in most cases, it does nothing to reduce damage that was already done, especially if you also carry some extra weight. This is why we recommend you start consuming quality plant-based dietary supplements that stimulate the regeneration of liver cells.
Bostjan tried natural remedies, too, and he didn’t regret it
"At first, I didn’t feel anything for 8, maybe 10 days, I almost gave up. I’m really happy that I didn’t! After the initial uneventful period I felt a miracle, overnight.
All of a sudden, I wasn’t exhausted after coming home from work. I could play with the kids to my heart’s desire. My weight started to go down, as well as my stomach size.
Since starting Hepafar in beginning of January, I lost – believe it or not – 8 kilos (almost 18 pounds). Now I can wear the pants that I’d been keeping in my closet just in case I ever lost weight. Trust me, they were in there for a long, long time – they’re almost completely out of style!" - Bostjan Urnault, Slovenia*
