6 Signs That a Liver Detox is Working

There is a limit to how much the liver can detoxify. If your liver is overloaded, diseased, or damaged, it will have difficulty performing its functions.

Reducing the toxins you consume is essential to keep your liver healthy. Here are a few signs that your liver is working properly:

1. More Energy

Toxins impair physical functions. If little to no toxins are circulating in your body, you should feel lighter, refreshed, and energetic.

You might need a liver detox if you:

  • Nap frequently

  • Feel sluggish after 8 hours of sleep

  • Have sleeping problems

  • Have no energy

2. Improved Mental State

A calm physical feeling is tied to a person’s mental state. Detoxification clears the brain of toxins, improving mood and other aspects of mental well-being. This is one reason detox is integral to mental health treatment programs.3

3. Clearer Skin

Toxins produced by stress are a bad combination for the skin. Detox should lead to clearer skin.

Aside from toxins, the liver also deals with hormones. Hormonal imbalance can cause hormone-related symptoms like acne and skin rashes. If the liver is properly functioning, your hormones will balance out.
