Love Your Liver: 10 foods you can add to your diet to cleanse your liver
Here are 10 foods you can add to your diet to cleanse your liver:
Garlic contains selenium, a mineral that helps to detoxify the liver. It also has the ability to activate liver enzymes that can help your body naturally flush out toxins.
Fruits like grapefruit, oranges, limes and lemons all support the liver’s cleansing ability. Even consumed in small amounts, citrus fruits help the liver to produce the detoxifying enzymes that flush out pollutants.
Vegetables like broccoli, kale, Brussels sprouts, cabbage and cauliflower contain glucosinolate, which helps the liver to produce detoxifying enzymes. Dark green leafy vegetables are high in chlorophyll, which helps to neutralize heavy metals to protect the liver.
Sulphur Rich Foods
Such as onions, garlic, leaks and eggs that aid another important liver detoxification pathway.
The active ingredient curcumin works wonders for the liver—it helps the enzymes that flush out toxins and contains antioxidants that support liver cell rejuvenation. It also assists the liver in detoxing metals, while helping bile production.
Walnuts are high in the amino acid arginine and assist the liver in detoxifying ammonia. They’re high in glutathione and omega-3 fatty acids, which all provide support to natural liver cleansing.
Beetroot is considered to be a blood cleanser, supports the liver detoxification pathways. It helps to stimulate bile flow (that carries toxins to the gut for excretion).
Carrots are very high in plant-flavonoids and beta-carotene, which support liver function overall.
Apples contain high levels of pectin, a wonderful soluble fibre that helps the body cleanse and release toxins from the digestive tract. With fewer toxins in the digestive tract, the liver can better manage its toxic load, being able to better cleanse the rest of the body.
Herbs and Spices
Oregano, sage and rosemary are rich in polyphenols, plant compounds which have a powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effect.
