9 Simple Ways to Boost Your Liver

8.  Detoxification in the liver requires considerable amounts of nutrients to function properly so be sure to take a high quality multivitamin and mineral supplement.  Even a single nutrient deficiency can seriously disrupt natural detoxification processes.

9.  While lying flat on your back, you can gently massage the liver/gallbladder area, which is located along the lower rib area on the right side of your body.  This helps improve circulation to the area.

Always consult your physician prior to making dietary changes or taking nutritional supplements.
