After a season of being merry, you may feel like it’s time to give your liver a break.
This hardworking organ is the biggest gland in the body and has the important task of keeping you well, store vitamins and iron and produce bile to help break down and digest fats, among many other things.
Alcohol, as well as processed and fried foods can affect how your liver functions. So it’s important to make sure you give it a good detox after a busy festive month.
8 ways to help you cleanse your liver
1. Avoid alcohol as well as caffeine for a while
Why not try having a dry January? Even cutting out caffeine, which can also cause your liver damage for a month or so.
2. Give up the greasy food
Processed foods, drinks as well as food that is high in trans fats and sugars can also damage your liver.
3. Up your vegetables
Veggies such as broccoli, kale, cabbage, cauliflower and Brussels sprouts have been proven to help give your liver a boost.
4. Sleep well
Sleeping is the way for the body to recharge itself and remove toxic waste.
5. Drink more water
Water helps detox your body, release waste and boost your energy – which will be needed if you’ve cut out caffeine.
6. Eat food high in antioxidants
Berries, fruit, nuts, spices and green tea are jammed packed full of antioxidants and can help restore any damaged cells in your liver.
7. Eat foods that flush out toxins
Meanwhile, turmeric, citrus, beetroot, garlic, walnuts and olive oils also help flush out toxins.
