Isn’t it nice when someone asks you if you need help with your work? Shouldn’t you do the same? Rather than asking someone else, why don’t you ask your own body and especially your liver? The liver, which is responsible for more than 500 functions, could use your help. One of the many responsibilities of this organ is to help detoxify the blood and get rid of harmful toxins, such as pollutants, prescribed drugs, viruses and natural by-products of metabolism. While your liver can bust natural by-products all day very easily, other taxing elements (refined sugars, tobacco, alcohol, and nicotine) are hard to remove. For removing these extra harmful elements from the body, it needs the help of micronutrients like vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. By incorporating a few super-foods in the diet, you can naturally clean your liver, regenerate cells and provide it with the required nutrients at the same time.

Green Tea

Vegetables

Vegetables like broccoli, cauliflower, brussels sprouts, cabbage and kale are rich in glutathione (antioxidant), which has been linked with stimulating liver cleaning enzymes.

Apple


An apple a day will help keep the doctor away from your liver! Packed with pectin (a chemical compound), apples can assist the liver in cleaning toxins from the digestive tract of the body. This reduces the toxin load of the liver, giving it time to clean the rest of the body.

Turmeric

Turmeric contains high amount of curcumin (chemical compound), which helps in removing toxins and repair liver cells. It also increases the production of bile juice, which assists in removing harmful metals from the body.
