The liver is a vital organ in the human body. It filters the blood that exits the stomach and intestine and then breaks down, regulates, and produces nutrients in the blood, as well as digesting drugs into forms that are easier for the human body to use or are harmless. As a result, it is critical that we take good care of our liver.

Every year on April 19th, World Liver Day is observed to recognize the importance of a healthy liver and to raise awareness about it. The liver is a vital organ in the human body.
