Why do we need to clean our liver? Your liver is responsible for cleaning up all the toxins you put into your body and keeping all internal systems running smoothly. Our diet, environmental pollutants, and our increasing dependence on toxic personal care products and exposure to toxics in general, are a few reasons why we need to CLEAN UP!
Your liver works to cleanse the blood and remove toxic substances that we’ve eaten, inhaled, or rubbed on our bodies. When it is overworked or when you are under a significant amount of physical or even mental stress, your liver can struggle to keep up.
LETS LEARN HOW TO CLEAN YOUR LIVER NATURALLY.
~ Cilantro ~ As a South American girl I like to use this herb in just about everything to add great taste to many dishes. Cilantro can also help remove heavy metals from your body which is something your liver could be struggling with. Add cilantro to your scrambled eggs, homemade pasta sauce and soup!
~ Lemon Water ~ This is my favorite morning drink for many reasons one being for its great ability to detox you liver. Try a glass of water with juice from a half lemon every morning. Don’t add sugar. The liver produces more enzymes in response to water with lemon than to any other food!
~ Garlic ~ Garlic has always been known to give you “protection”. Growing up in South-American you would often see kids wearing a homemade garlic necklace for “protection”. Although some believes it gives you spiritual protection Garlic contains allicin and selenium which are both good for liver protection. Add some garlic to your cooking for flavoring and overall protection.
~ Avocado ~ It contain compounds that can protect the liver from damage. Compared to other fruits avocados have the most ability to protect the liver from galactosamine which is a toxin that produces a liver damage much like human viral hepatitis.
Cleansing your liver is crucial. Keeping a health diet and avoiding exposure to toxic products including your personal care products are important for your overall health.
