Our liver is a remarkable organ. It’s able to regenerate itself after damage or injury and protects us from toxic substances we face each day in our food, environment and medicines. Our liver deserves some love. What’s the best way to do this?
We read about how important our liver is when we realize that social times are upon us. Christmas, birthdays and celebrations place an increased workload on this largest organ in our abdomen. Alcohol and other medicines are altered to safer forms in our liver.
It needs proper nutrition. Garlic, grapefruit, green tea, green leafy vegetables and avocado are the best liver foods by far. Try and enjoy a number of these delicious options every day and your liver will thank you!
Liver “detoxifying” is a common marketing phrase enticing us to seek a magic solution to liver health. Enjoying food just mentioned, along with plenty of water, cutting back on alcohol and sugar, watching our intake of paracetamol (the most common cause of dug-induced liver damage) and staying regular are things on which to focus.
Start your morning with a glass of water with perhaps some lemon or apple cider vinegar added. Eggs for breakfast are a better option that highly processed cereals. Learn to enjoy herbal tea as an alternative to coffee. High sugar desserts make the liver work harder at night.
The liver herb of choice is milk thistle. This safe and gentle herb offers significant protection to the liver against hundreds of potent toxins. It’s a herb to use for any liver disorder as well.
