Health Tip | Foods That Detox the Liver

September 9, 2019


Hi. Today were going to talk about 14 foods
that cleanse the liver. When the liver is taxed it can’t process toxins and fat in an
efficient way. There are many foods that can help cleanse the liver naturally, by stimulating
the natural ability to clean toxic waste from the body. Eating the following foods is the
best way to keep your liver healthy and functioning the way you need it to. Number 1, garlic.
Just a small amount has the ability to activate liver enzymes, which help your body flush
out toxins. Garlic also holds high amounts of allicin and selenium, two natural compounds
that aid in liver cleansing. Number 2, grapefruit. It’s high in Vitamin C and antioxidants, and
has the natural cleansing ability to support the liver. Grapefruit juice helps boost the
production of liver detoxification enzymes, and helps flush out carcinogens and other
toxins. Number 3, beats and carrots. Both extremely high in plant flavonoids and beta-carotene.
This helps stimulate and improve overall liver function. Number 4, green tea. This liver
loving beverage is full of plant antioxidants and catechins, a constituent known to assist
the livers overall function. Number 5, leafy green vegetables. One of the most powerful
allies in cleansing the liver that can be eaten raw, cooked, or juiced. High in plant
chlorophylls, greens literally suck up environmental toxins from the blood stream and the body.
They eliminate and neutralize chemicals and pesticides and are powerful protective mechanisms
for the liver. Number 6, avocados. This nutrient super food helps the body produce glutathione,
which is necessary for the liver to cleanse harmful toxins. Recent studies show that avocados
greatly improve liver health. Number 7, apples. They are high in pectin, apples hold the chemical
constituents needed for the body to cleanse and release toxins from the digestive tract.
This makes it easier for the liver to handle the toxic load during the cleansing process.
Number 8, olive oil. Cold pressed organic oil such as olive oil, hemp seed oil, flax
seed oil, are great for the liver. When used in moderation they help the body produce a
lipid base that can suck up harmful toxins. In this way it takes some of the burden off
of the liver in terms of the toxic overload that many of us suffer from. Number 9, whole
grains. Grains such as brown rice, which are rich in B complex vitamins, improve the overall
fat metabolization and liver function as well as liver congestion. Number 10, cruciferous
vegetables will add necessary enzyme production in the liver and support it. These natural
enzymes will help flush out carcinogens and other toxins from the body. Number 11, lemons
and limes. These citrus fruits contain high amounts of vitamin C, which aids the body
in synthesizing toxic material into substances that can be absorbed by water. Drinking freshly
squeezed lemon or lime juice mixed in water in the morning will help stimulate your liver.
Number 12, walnuts. Holding high amounts of the amino acid arginine, walnuts aid the liver
by detoxifying ammonia. They also support glutathione production in the liver. Number
13, cabbage. Much like broccoli and cauliflower, eating cabbage will help stimulate the activation
of two crucial liver detoxifying enzymes that also help the liver flush out toxins. Number
14, turmeric, the livers favored spice. Turmeric helps boost liver detox by assisting the enzymes
again that actively flush out known dietary carcinogens. Other liver cleansing foods are
artichokes, asparagus, kale, and Brussels sprouts. Eating the 14 foods listed above
is a great way to keep your liver functioning properly. However, for best results, I would
recommend doing a liver cleanse. Doing a liver cleanse at least 2 to 3 times a year will
eliminate any foreign substances that you may have trapped inside of your liver. To

    Eat garlic, grapefruit, beets (high in sugar), green tea every day. Kale, spinach, eggs every day. Cinnamon, tumeric, avocados every day. No msg or carbs. Eat one apple a day cut up into small pieces eaten at 3pm, breakfast. Olive oil teaspoon before dinner. Avoid all grains. Eat small qty of brocoli, onions. Lemons and lemon juice every day. Been doing this for over 3 years now. Walnuts, cashews throughout the day. Am I healthy? What else can I do? Coconut oil, butter bkst with eggs and spinach and kale. What else can I do?

    Grapefruit and grapefruit juice interact with a LOT of medicines people take today. Check with your Doctor. Eating healthy foods is great as long as you can eat organic, and avoid. GMO foods. I think GMO is our problem with toxic liver!!!

    glad someone is finally promoting garlic, lemons, walnuts, grapefruits, and small amt of pure olive oil. things my 98 year old grandfather ate all his life lol…and idiots here claiming garlic and onions are bad for health – many vegans say that, I think its foolish. Esp. ones that do or at some time in their vegan life drank their own urine ugghh…urine is a product of your body ELIMINATING waste materials, you are not suppose to drink it. Another good food for liver and overall health are ginger and hot peppers, if you can tolerate it. My grandfather ate hot peppers a lot, for me its really hard but they are good for the liver and for joint inflammations. My grandfather grew dark purple grapes and made his own homemade wine, probably not great for you but with all the other good stuff he ate every day, it doesn't seem to have hurt him, probably compensated. He's a natural food eater without calling it that – he just calls it "food" and never ate a processed anything ever, except occasional home made sweets/desserts but that is on rare occasions. Other things he ate a lot of (all fresh, not dried): parsley, mint, sage, apple bananas, figs (tons of figs), apricots, dark purple plums, peaches, pomegranites, cactus fruits, grapes – tons of grapes and figs, his favorite fruits. He ate rice all his life probably 3 or 4 days a week, chick peas, fava beans, raw olive oil and pickled olives, turnips, okra, cauliflower. he also ate non-vegan foods too like chicken, lamb couple days a week, and home made goat's milk yogurt. I think he had one of the best diets all his life but didn't realize it, processed food to him was the same as eating plastic, never happened.

    Dandelion root and leaves is the bomb for treating the liver as good as Milk Thistle I have heard

    "Dandelion helps to detoxify the liver and promote increased bile production, says Andrew Chevallier in his book, "Encyclopedia of Herbal Medicine." In the folk medicine of many countries, dandelion is used as a liver tonic to stimulate a sluggish or congested liver. The roots provide a mild laxative effect and are used to improve digestion and relieve stomach upsets like flatulence, constipation and fullness. Additionally, dandelion root may relieve headaches and treat skin disorders, boils and other ailments related to liver dysfunction. Because dandelion helps to clean the liver and gallbladder, it is believed to be important for the removal of toxins deposited in the liver from pharmaceutical drugs. There is some indication that the root of the plant may boost the production of natural, healthy bacteria of the gastrointestinal tract, according to the University of Maryland Medical Center. ""
