14 Foods for liver health


The liver is our largest internal organ. It filters our blood, removing harmful material from the bloodstream as well as helping to digest food.

The liver flushes toxins we put into our body (such as alcohol, white sugar,  coffee and tobacco) to regulate our health and ensure an optimal balance.

To ensure this organ remains healthy and in working order, because it is working hard every minute of the day around the clock, be sure to stay away from processed foods and keep it whole. 

  
 

It is the food that grows directly from the earth that can improve the overall functions of your liver.

Eating or drinking grapefruit can help your liver flush out toxins. Great fruit is high in both vitamin C and antioxidant properties.

Beats contain plant flavonoids, which can improve the overall functions of your liver.

Leafy greens like arugula, spinach and lettuce have the ability to neutralize metals, chemicals and pesticides. Since these may appear in our food, eating greens protects our liver.

Green tea contains plant antioxidants known as catechins, which help to improve liver functions.

Cruciferous vegetables like broccoli, cauliflower and brussels sprouts produce organic compounds to help create enzyme production for digestion.

Not only do you lemons give us high doses of vitamin C but also cleanse toxins and aid the digestion process.

Walnuts are high in omega-3 fatty acids, which helps support the liver to cleanse our body.

Tumeric, a natural anti-septic, helps our bodies digest fats and stimulate the production of bile. It also acts as a natural form of detox for your liver.

Keep it whole, and keep it real when it comes to food. Be nice to your liver! It is working so hard for you every single day.
