Liver and gallbladder disease and importance of detoxification

Adipose tissue is the fat-storing connective tissue of our body. Our adipose tissue functions not just as an energy reserve, but also as an endocrine organ and storage receptacle for toxins known as persistent organic pollutants (POPs). Where better to put these dangerous compounds than a place where they can be “safely” stored away from our essential organs? However, with weight loss, these toxins are released, and require the liver to increase its activities to metabolize and eliminate them from our bodies.
