The relationship between liver and aging

The onset of premature aging is predisposed more environmentally than genetically, and occurs under the conditions of a body exposure to a complex of adverse factors. These include: excessive long-term psychoemotional overload, stresses at work, leading to depletion of the nervous system, significant restrictions of an individual’s physical activity, environmental distress of the habitat where the person lives and works.

The factors that accelerate aging include toxic burdens on the body, primarily smoking, alcohol abuse, and work in hazardous industries. Unfavorable effects on the liver are exerted by unbalanced environmentally unfriendly food, radioactive substances, microwave radiation.

Finally, long-term chronic inflammatory diseases of the liver, gallbladder, and intestine, which are not systematically treated, and such treatment has no noticeable positive effect, contribute to a significant acceleration of the liver aging process.

Individuals suffering from excessive weight, endocrine disorders, having certain other diseases associated with disorders of blood circulation, respiration, and chronic intoxication of the body, are aging early.

Aging is not only a complex of external changes, understandable, alas, to every person, but also a change in the functional capabilities of all organs, including digestive organs.

Rapid aging is primarily a sign of poor quality of the liver function. This organ accumulates and produces the vitamins, trace elements, enzymes, and hormones necessary for our body, recycles toxins. If the liver does not cope with its functions, this immediately causes a chain of other disorders in the body.

In particular, endocrine organs suffer, for example, the thyroid gland and the ovaries producing hormones responsible for both the ability of propagation and maintenance of an attractive appearance. The liver has to recycle old and spent hormones. If it does not manage, they circulate in the blood, and consequently, endocrine glands stop producing new ones.

How are the liver and the aging process interrelated?

The mass of the liver and its dimensions decrease in the process of aging.

In hepatocytes, the area of energy-forming and protein-forming structures is reduced, fat is accumulated, and the activity of all liver functions decreases.

The area of the lumen of the bile ducts increases, their tone decreases, which helps to slow down the flow of bile. The level of free bilirubin increases as a result of deceleration of the pigment exchange process. With age, the protein-synthetic and detoxification functions decrease, the production of amino acids decreases, and toxins harmful to the body accumulate.

With age, the intensity of the blood supply to the liver gradually decreases, its supply with oxygen decreases, the number of hepatocytes, the main cellular structures of the liver tissue, decreases, and activity of the links of its functional activity decreases. Thus, the rate of protein synthesis by the liver in senile age is reduced by more than 30%, its involvement in fat, carbohydrate, pigment, water and electrolyte metabolism decreases, and antitoxic, vitamin-synthetic, and other functions are inhibited.

When the blood supply to the liver deteriorates, its detoxification properties are reduced, an insufficient amount of energy necessary for the body is produced – a person feels chronic fatigue, apathy, a decrease in sexual activity, a decrease in interest in life.

A person associates all these changes with age and additionally plunges into depression. A vicious circle is formed.

What do you need to do to return the liver to work at full capacity?

What can help to “renew” the liver, preserve the youth and health of the whole body?

Wise men called the liver “the second heart”, as it is responsible for many processes in the body. And, if we support this organ properly, we can significantly influence the premature aging of the body.


  • Betargin improves blood supply of both the liver and the heart.
  • Betargin enhances oxygen supply to the heart and liver – beneficial not only for the visceral function, but also for the skin condition.
  • Betaine is an excellent skin moisturizer, and it is widely used in European professional cosmetology. Intake of betaine in Betargin composition helps to improve the skin appearance.
  • Betargin enhances detoxification properties of the liver, ability to neutralize and eliminate toxins, free radicals, metabolic products of various substances, thus providing “cleansing” of the liver and improving both well-being and appearance.
  • Betargin enhances the protein-synthesis function of the liver, thereby contributing to the preservation of the body’s muscle mass, and prevents muscle slackening.
  • Betargin enhances neutralization of alcohol in the body, reduces the toxic effects of its decomposition products on the body.
  • Betargin enhances the production of energy in the form of ATP, which provides a surge of strength and energy, increases efficiency, elevates resistance to physical exertion, reduces sexual apathy.
