Release the Fatty Liver

Concerned about your liver or pancreatic health? You’re not alone. 

The liver is the body’s primary tool for processing toxins. Some of these toxins occur naturally, but many come from our modern environment and lifestyles. Toxic compounds can come from alcohol, prescribed drugs, recreational drugs, hormones, and pesticides.

Unfortunately, given the critical role of our liver, estimates show that up to two-fifths of the U.S. population suffers from fatty liver disease. That’s roughly 100 million Americans. Even more of us are carrying around extra fat buildup in the liver without a diagnosis of disease. 

While it's well-known that alcohol abuse and lifestyle factors can lead to liver damage, it's less known that the pancreas can be damaged in similar ways.   

So, if you find you’re carrying a few extra pounds, or feeling fatigued beyond your years, it may be time for that liver cleanse you’ve been thinking about, or time to boost to the ol’ pancreas, which you probably haven’t been thinking about at all!  

Read on to find out more about why and how to release the fatty liver.

Really, the number of people with liver problems is that high? 

Really. Some 20% to 40% of Americans now have non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), whether its  simple non-alcoholic fatty liver (NAFL), and 3% to 7% of the population in the united states suffers from Non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH). 

That’s not good news, because excess fat deposits can cause inflammation and scarring of the liver. And these conditions are connected to metabolic syndrome—diabetes, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol. 

All of our products are designed to counter the effects of industrialized lives and to fight on behalf of our metabolism to fend off the effects of stress and meals high in refined carbohydrates and sugar. 


Causes of a Fatty Liver

Sometimes congenital or hereditary issues cause fatty liver, but often excessive alcohol intake, viral hepatitis, and obesity play a role. 


Our personal and societal environments play a huge role in this. The standard American diet today coupled with the typically sedentary, high-stress modern lifestyle means we’re creating the conditions for fat to deposit in the liver. 

Signs of a Sluggish Liver 

If you frequently experience any of these signs, your liver may be functioning at a sub-par level: 

  • Low energy; constantly feeling tired or fatigued 
  • Intolerance of alcohol and/or fatty foods
  • Feeling nauseous after meals high in fat
  • Weight gain, especially abdominal weight gain
  • Cravings and/or blood sugar issues
  • Coated tongue and/or bad breath
  • Headaches
  • Trouble with digestion
  • Intolerance for strong smells
  • Pain on your right side 
  • Skin breakouts like acne, eczema or rashes


As always, consult your doctor if you have acute or longstanding concerns with any of these symptoms.



How to Release a Fatty Liver

Good news! The most effective fatty liver treatments you can make include lifestyle changes… and that’s what the Almeda lifestyle all about. We advocate for the following action steps. 


  • Eat well--eat whole plant foods whenever possible. Seek out the right balance of protein, healthy fats, and hearty fiber from a mix of your favorite vegetables and fruits. 


  • Move often. Find fun and inspirational ways to stay active. Walk, bike, dance to music.... do whatever you feel called to do. Just keep moving! 


  • Check your key health indicators. Commit to getting help losing weight if you're overweight or obese. Lower your cholesterol levels if you face high or moderate levels of cholesterol. 


  • Avoid or reduce alcohol. This can be a tough one for some people, so if you do overindulge, you might want to look for ways to boost your liver’s capacity to rebound. 


  • Avoid other stressors on the liver.  Watch your blood sugar levels and take medications as directed. Consult your health care professional about herbal remedies. 


  • Take supplementation as needed to address any nutrient deficiencies. There are many ways to improve your liver health.

The Liver and Pancreas Work Together

While the liver's job is to digest food by breaking down fats, removing toxins and processing and storing certain vitamins and minerals, the pancreas produces enzymes that assist in breaking down proteins, fats and carbohydrates. 


Both the liver and the pancreas partner together to help you digest and process what your body needs. They both possess stellate cells, for example.



These organs work together to give you the components you need to maintain homeostasis and live a healthy, energetic life. 

We created Isle to support your pancreatic metabolism, too.  

The pancreas produces important hormones and enzymes that aid in digestion and help fuel your energy levels.  We’ve developed supplements that comprise easily absorbed amino acids 


Isle’s ingredients include lysine, serine, and isoleucine. Lysine is often referred to as a building block for protein. Serine is another amino acid used to synthesize proteins. It’s needed to metabolize fats, fatty acids, and cell membranes. It can help create a healthy immune system and affect muscle growth. Isoleucine, a branched-chain amino acid, helps support endurance and repair and rebuild muscle. It also appears to promote glucose consumption and uptake.


Basically, Isle supports Islet cell metabolism and digestion. Islet cells produce insulin. Our clients often take Thrine and Isle together for holistic healing of the fatty liver.
