Did you know that the liver plays a key role in regulating blood sugar in the body? It produces, stores, and controls the level of sugar (glucose) in the blood.

Fatty liver is the result of fat accumulation in the liver and is not as effective as a healthy liver in removing harmful substances. Furthermore, it increases the likelihood of diabetes complications such as chronic kidney disease and retinopathy.

Statistics show that non-alcoholic fatty liver affects as many as 34% of the general population, 55% of individuals with type 2 diabetes, and 75% of overweight individuals.

The causes of fatty liver and elevated blood sugar are intertwined.

The most common causes of fat accumulation in the liver are obesity, alcoholism, and diabetes.

Lack of physical activity and an unhealthy diet rich in “harmful” saturated fats, refined carbohydrates, and fructose contribute to the development of this disease. The accumulation of fat in the liver can lead to very serious conditions, such as cirrhosis and liver cancer.

Food and dietary supplements are key to the treatment of fatty liver and elevated blood sugar

Research shows that the Mediterranean diet reduces the prevalence of non-alcoholic fatty liver. This type of diet also contributes to better blood sugar regulation and a reduction in oxidative stress, which can lead to insulin resistance (our body cells do not respond adequately to insulin).

Where and how to start the changes? 

Let’s be honest: none of us make changes until “the water reaches our neck”. We live at a fast pace, with a hundred obligations every day, throughout the year. So don’t feel guilty, but be honest with yourself. If you’re eating fast food, okay – change it. Are you compensating for the need for quick energy with cookies, chocolates, and other sweets? Okay – change it. For yourself and your health.

My personal advice: start with a conversation with a food expert, a nutritionist. Every body is different, we don’t all react the same way to the same causes of illness. That’s why an individual approach is necessary, so that the energy and effort spent on change won’t be in vain. Carry out exercises under the guidance of a trainer.

The plant milk thistle has long been known for its protective and regenerative effects on the liver, thanks to its main active ingredient silymarin.

Numerous studies have confirmed that milk thistle, either alone or in combination with vitamin E and other antioxidants, can reduce inflammation and damage in fatty liver. It has also been confirmed that milk thistle contributes to reducing blood glucose levels in individuals with type 2 diabetes.

Our digestive system actually has difficulty utilizing milk thistle, which is why phytosomal extracts are better (simply put, milk thistle is enclosed within microscopic oil droplets).

Phytosomal form demonstrates better absorption and more efficient intracellular penetration compared to conventional extracts on the market. Due to its higher bioavailability, phytosomal milk thistle extract is effective even in smaller doses.

DAMASALIS has developed a product for the health of your liver, with a unique composition and a 7-in-1 action:

SILYSMART® contains a phytosomal form of milk thistle extract that our body can better utilize, resulting in a 7 times stronger absorption compared to conventional products on the market – it regenerates and protects the liver, cleanses the body from free radicals and toxins from medications, supports the liver and gallbladder in fat digestion, slows down the growth of tumor cells, protects against oxidative stress, reduces fatigue, and restores energy.

  • Reduced glutathione, the strongest antioxidant in our body, which further protects the liver from accumulated toxins 
  • Choline bitartrate promotes fat breakdown and supports liver function 
  • Vitamin E protects liver cells from oxidative stress

The liver doesn’t cause pain, but we cannot survive without it! Pay attention to the symptoms of an overloaded liver and take immediate action
