9 Simple Ways to Boost Your Liver

 

The liver is the body’s main fat-digesting and detoxification organ.  Every molecule of fat that you eat must pass through your liver, but if your liver is overburdened by its more than 500 other essential activities, it can become sluggish.  Here are ways to boost your liver function:

1.  Since the liver requires high amounts of vitamins and minerals to perform its many functions, your diet should be high in fruits and vegetables and nutrient-rich foods.

2.  Because food additives and preservatives need to be filtered by your liver, your diet should be free of processed foods, artificial food additives, colors, and preservatives to take the load off your liver.  Additionally, choose to eat a diet low in refined sugar and synthetic sweeteners.

3. You should definitely be avoiding margarine, shortening, commercial oils (choose unrefined oils from the refrigerator section of your local health food store).  Avoid eating animal fat and fried foods as well.

I eat lots of raw fruits and veges in the form of juices (actually depend on them) and water of course. It has shown a lot of change to my health and I hope it helps in the long run too. I am sure it will.

Low carb diets are sensible.
