Imagine a killer which can claim millions of lives without making a sound. A ruthless assassin that strikes without warning, leaving destruction and devastation in its wake. This is the reality of Alcoholic Liver Disease (ALD). It has become a public health crisis. With the popularity of alcohol, eager to consume it and feel the euphoria, is grabbing the attention of young youth as well. But is everyone aware of the consequences? 


In this blog, you can read all the information regarding Alcoholic Liver Disease and how it affects your liver. Also, gain knowledge about herbs that can help in liver cell rejuvenation and reducing effects of alcohol on the liver.   

Uncovering the Truth About Alcoholic Liver Disease (ALD)

Alcoholic Liver Disease (ALD) is a progressive condition that damages the liver causing it to become scarred, inflamed and eventually, non-functional. The excessive alcohol intake damages liver cells, causing inflammation and scarring. The liver tries to repair itself, but repeated damage leads to permanent scarring (fibrosis). As scarring progresses, liver function declines, and toxins build up in the blood. If left untreated, ALD can lead to liver failure.

It's A ruthless assassin as:

  • It often shows no symptoms in its early stages.
  • Symptoms can be vague, such as fatigue, nausea, and abdominal pain.
  • It can progress slowly, making it difficult to diagnose.

But all Alcoholics do not have ALD or Alcoholic Liver Disease…
