Tomato juice and molasses at Small Intestine Time (1:00-3:00 p.m.) is a bodacious Liver Tonic.
At Small Intestine Time, the Liver Meridian’s glycogen cycle is at Low Tide and its biliary cycle is at High Tide.
It’s exactly the opposite at Liver Time: its glycogen cycle is at High Tide and its biliary cycle is at Low Tide.
Liver Time (1:00-3:00 a.m.) is the Master Control Time for the body’s Food Clock.
Lung Time (3:00-5:00 a.m.) is the Master Control Time for the body’s Exercise (and Sex) Clock.
Large Intestine Time (5:00-7:00 a.m.) is the Master Control Time for the body’s Light-Dark Clock.
X. Tong & L. Yin (“Circadian rhythms in liver physiology and liver diseases,” Comparative Physiology, April 2013) wrote …
“The circadian clock system in the liver plays important roles in regulating metabolism and energy homeostasis. Clock gene mutant animals display impaired glucose and lipid metabolism and are susceptible to diet-induced obesity and metabolic dysfunction, providing strong evidence for the connection between the circadian clock and metabolic homeostasis.”
