The liver is the largest internal organ of the body and is involved in more than 500 different functions including digestion, metabolism, nutrients’ storage and removal of toxins.

Liver functions -
Production of bile, which helps carry away waste and break down fats in the small intestine during digestion
Production of certain proteins for blood plasma
Production of cholesterol and special proteins to help carry fats through the body
Store and release glucose as needed
Processing of hemoglobin for use of its iron content (the liver stores iron)
Conversion of harmful ammonia to urea (urea is one of the end products of protein metabolism that is excreted in the urine)
Clearing the blood of drugs and other harmful substances
Regulating blood clotting
Resisting infections by producing immune factors and removing bacteria from the bloodstream
Clearance of bilirubin (if there is a buildup of bilirubin, the skin and eyes turn yellow)

Symptoms of liver problem -
Loss of appetite, vomiting and nausea (sensation of unease and discomfort in the upper stomach ) are a few common symptoms of liver damage

Protein the building block -

An average healthy person requires 0.8 to 1.0g of protein per kilogram of body weight. e.g. If your weight is 60KG, you need 60gm of protein everyday just to suffice your basic needs. 

*What is PDCAA* - Protein Digestible Corrected Amino Acid Score (If the score is 1 => It is 100% digestible)
Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO) and World Health Organization (WHO) Joint Expert Consultation recommend PDCAAS as an acceptable and valid procedure for protein quality evaluation.

Protein is made up of Amino acids which is the building block of our cells in body. Higher the gap, higher the cell->tissue->Organ level damage.

There are 22 amino acids:
- 9 are considered as essential (Body Can’t create) - Have to get from external source.
- 13 are Non essential (Body can create)

To fulfill the basic daily need of a *60 KG person*, one has to consume *4 litres of milk or 8 whole eggs* which is hard to digest.

One complete solution -
*Nutrilite All Plant Protein*
- PDCAA score 1, i.e. 100% digestible.
- Has 80% protein concetration compared to any other brand of 30-40% maximum.
- Contains all 9 essential amino acids.

*Taking protein will increase my weight is a myth*
The ONLY situation in which protein will make one “GAIN WEIGHT” is when it is included in a WHOLE nutrition program designed for muscle gains paired with a heavy-duty strength training program.  This nutrition program includes Carbohydrates, Un Saturated plant-based Fats AND lean proteins.
Four Secrets to Good health
1. Eat good quality nutrition
2. Exercise daily
3. Adequate rest - 6 hours of uninterrupted sleep
4. Positive attitude (Positive Association)

Why Nutrition supplements?
When we take supplements we don't do symptomatic treatment. As we are exposed to SRPW (Stress, Radiation, Pollution, Wrong Habits), so our needs are very high which can't come from only food, so nutritional supplements are required. We are eating a lot of food, but under-nourished. 

What is Bio-availability - How much is there for the body to use.
Dietary supplements can be of two types -
- Plant extracts - perceived as food to the body - Bio-availability is 100%
- Synthetically produced i.e. drugs - perceived as foreign bodies - Bio-availability is 40%, so rest can cause side effects.
