The Liver - Your Body's Powerhouse
Research has shown that the high incidence of obesity in Malaysia is linked to a high risk for fatty liver disease. Fatty liver is a term used to describe a build-up of excess fat in the liver cells. While it is commonly thought that fatty liver disease results from of overconsumption of alcohol, the liver can also retain excess fat through other causes such as a diet rich in fatty and starchy foods coupled with a sedentary lifestyle. This more common occurrence is classified as non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD).
NAFLD is becoming disturbingly more prevalent around the world, with 15% - 30% of adult Westerners being diagnosed with it. In Japan, around 18% - 30% of the population were found to have NAFLD and 14% in Thailand.
The liver is the body's largest internal organ, shouldering a wide range of significant tasks. A few of its crucial responsibilities include:
- Regulating the composition of blood
- Controlling levels of sugar, protein and fat that enter the bloodstream
- The breakdown and removal of toxic compounds (eg: chemicals, food preservatives, alcohol, drugs)
- Converting vitamins into usable forms for the body
- Storing nutrients such as Vitamin A, iron and minerals
- Producing cholesterol
- Creating clotting factors that help the blood to clot
Along with affecting the functions of the liver mentioned above, NAFLD contributes to:
- Cardiovascular disease, linked with high cholesterol and high blood pressure
- Metabolic disorders such as insulin resistance and diabetes
- Scarring of liver tissue (fibrosis)
- Liver inflammation
- Liver disease and cancer
Fatty liver usually does not cause any symptoms or signs, but when it does, it includes fatigue, and pain in the upper right abdomen. While it is commonly found in people who are middle-aged, overweight or obese, many people who do not fit that description are also at risk because of their high cholesterol, triglyceride and blood sugar levels.

"I've had Pro LX continuously for 1 week plus but had a missed dose for 2-3 days, but caught up on it as you have suggested. So far I've noticed the changes are: my BP have regained normal, last reading 115/87 as compared to 179/120 before PRO LX. I've also noticed that my eyesight have cleared and have gained my normal 20/20 vision not requiring reading glasses. I only require reading glasses under extreme stressful condition during work which I've identified to my blurry vision due to stress and BP increase. My thumbs up to PRO LX for the positive aspect of my health but would love to see an improvement on the solubility of this product in water. Currently, it needs an effort to mix it into warm water. Further more my metabolism have also increased as I've noticed that I'm hungry more often, very much like when I was in my 20's. Craving for food that are higher in fat content and calories."
