Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease (NAFLD)
Roughly one-third of the American population suffers from non-alcoholic fatty liver disease or NAFLD.1-3 Many of its victims do not know they have it. NAFLD can go undetected for years and may eventually progress to inflammation and scarring of the liver (cirrhosis) and, in some cases, full-blown liver failure.
A formerly rare condition, its rapid emergence has been linked to skyrocketing rates of metabolic syndrome and “diabesity,” the term many experts use for co-occurring diabetes and obesity.3-5
While poor dietary choices are often to blame, cutting-edge research suggests that hidden genetic factors may also play a role, as some people do not metabolize polyunsaturated fats properly, resulting in fatty deposits in the liver.6
As mainstream medicine continues to struggle in the search for drugs to manage this widespread condition, emerging scientific evidence has shed light on effective natural interventions that may halt or even reverse its progress.
