0 Comments

The liver performs over 500 different functions, making it one of the most overburdened organ in your body. So it’s necessary to save liver. Here are few ways to give your liver a boost.

We devote plenty of time and energy into spring cleaning our homes but what about our bodies? Every day we encounter high levels of chemicals — from the food we eat to the personal care products we use each morning. Our bodies remove some chemicals through its natural waste system, but because we live in such a toxin-laden world, this system can get bogged down.

Your liver is arguably one of the most important organs in your body’s natural’s natural detoxification system. To prevent our fat tissues and cells from absorbing them, the liver turns fat-soluble toxins into water-soluble toxins, from which point our bodies can easily flush them. This is just one small role that liver plays in our body, however; the liver has more than 500 functions, from metabolising fat to regulating hormones and if it spends too much time working to remove toxins, your health can falter.

To support your liver and aid your body’s natural detoxification process, follow these tips.

Don’t overburden your liver:- Your liver works hard enough without having to process things like alcohol and over the counter painkillers, which are unnecessarily hard on this vital organ. In fact, taking regular, small doses of painkillers is the leading cause of drug-induced liver disease and failure.

Drink plenty of lemon water:- Water is important to the natural detox system; it’s one of the methods by which our bodies remove toxins. The citric acid in lemon juice encourages the liver to produce bile, which is another vehicle that our bodies use to excrete toxins.

Eat cruciferous vegetables:- Broccoli, cabbage, kale, arugula, collard greens and other cruciferous vegetables are recommended foods when doing a liver detox. Be sure to eat at least one serving a day.

Get enough minerals:- Minerals are essential to the liver detoxification process, so make sure you’re eating plenty of mineral-rich foods or taking a good mineral supplement.

Avoid oral hormones:- Anabolic steroids taken for bodybuilding, the birth control pill and drugs such as Permarin taken for menopause place stress on the liver.
