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.

In addition to that, take a capsule of Milk Thistle daily. If I've been eating crummy, my skin will tell me that my liver is tired. A doctor I know also says that if you regularly wake up between 1 am and 3 am, which is when your liver is doing the most work cleansing, it's telling you that your liver is working too hard and needs help cleansing. Stop any sugars, even natural ones, and that will go a long way towards helping the problem.
