Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease (NAFLD) and Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease are the two forms of fatty liver disease, while non-alcoholic fatty liver disease is further classified into two subtypes: Simple Fatty Liver and Non-Alcoholic Steatohepatitis (NASH). In cases of NASH, liver inflammation can result in malignancy or cirrhosis.
Alcoholic steatohepatitis, on the other hand, is a condition that results from extensive alcohol consumption. While breaking down alcohol, the liver emits toxic substances, which injure the cells of the organ and cause inflammation.
Despite the fact that 25% of the adult population worldwide is afflicted by NAFLD, the prevalence rate in India ranges from 9% to 32%, according to reports. In an interview with HT Lifestyle, Dr. Shanmugam, Assistant Chief Medical Officer at Jindal Naturecure Institute, stated, “Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease can affect people of all ages. People between the ages of 40 and 50 who have certain preexisting conditions, such as obesity, type 2 diabetes, elevated cholesterol, PCOS, sleep apnea, and metabolic syndrome, are more likely to experience this condition.
NAFLD typically does not cause any symptoms; however, those with any of the conditions listed above may experience an enlarged spleen, abdominal enlargement, dilated blood vessels, yellowing skin and eyes, and scarlet palms.”
Dr. Shanmugam stressed that several everyday substances can aid liver recovery and create beneficial effects.
Curcumin in turmeric, when administered appropriately, protects liver cells from non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD).
Cinnamon has powerful anti-inflammatory properties that are effective at reducing hepatic inflammation.
Amla, also known as Indian Gooseberry, is loaded with antioxidants and vitamin C, which safeguard the liver and eliminate impurities.
Cider Apple Vinegar
Apple cider vinegar is a popular choice for home remedies due to its remarkable detoxifying properties. Apple Cider Vinegar aids the liver in eliminating impurities that can disrupt the body’s normal functioning.
