The Perfect Foods to Clean Out & Repair Your Liver
Welcome, everyone. Dr. Mandel here. Did you know that your liver is the main organ within your whole body that’s responsible for detoxification? Now think about all the foods that we ingest, including all the medicine and drugs, as well as all the things that we inhale.
Smoking, pollution, excessive sugars, excessive fats, refined foods that we eat every day. All this causes toxins to accumulate in our liver. You see, here is the problem. When those toxins accumulate, we get more free radicals. That’s what causes all that degenerative changes to occur within our liver.
And if we don’t get ahold of this early enough, we’re going to eventually have significant liver damage. Over 80 million people here, just in the United States, have fatty livers. When you look at the amount of carbohydrates, as well as processed foods that we take in that we ingest, and our liver is trying to take all of this sugar and convert it into fat, and it becomes so excessive that we start building up fat in the liver. Now, the liver’s metabolism has significant problems.
Just to show you how powerful your liver is, it produces bile, which helps carry away waste and break down fats into the small intestine. During digestion, it produces cholesterol and special proteins to carry fats through the body.
It stores and releases glucose as needed. It processes hemoglobin for use of its iron content. It clears the blood of drugs and other harmful substances. It regulates blood clotting. There are several liver healing foods that you need to start adding to your diet to help cleanse your liver. Coconut oil, like all natural fat, helps you feel satisfied and reduces that sugar.
Craving just a tablespoon a day can be a great asset. Start adding cruciferous vegetables to your diet. These will help raise levels of glutathione. It’s an antioxidant that’s a liver detoxifier and antiinflammatory your sulfurrich veggies. Like your onions and garlic, they help the liver produce bile to break down fat, which in turn makes it easier for the body to burn carbs and energy.
Dandelion greens help support better liver function. That’s another great bile booster. So if you’re a coffee lover, you’re probably going to love me for this one. One to two cups of coffee a day will keep the doctor away. That’s a great antioxidant to help preserve and heal your liver. And don’t forget your turmeric.
This spice is rich in the antioxidant curcumin, which is so good for the liver. This can actually help improve fat burning. One of the greatest herbs on top of my list is called milk thistle. There are multiple studies out there. The other name is called Silly Marin. This will repair damaged cells. It’s a major detoxifier, and this will do miracles for your liver.
Always keep those lemons around. Squeeze that lemon into a glass of water first thing in the morning on an empty stomach. It’s an amazing detoxifier and it will also help the liver emulsify fat eating your berries will help cleanse your liver it’s rich in polyphenols so eat your fatty fishes they’re great in omega threes your tunas, your salmons or mackerel.
Don’t be afraid to eat healthy fats. Your olive oils, your nuts. That’s what you need to help clean your liver. All these strategies will definitely help your liver. But please help yourself first. If you have bad habits of eating lots of refined foods, tons of sugars, not getting proper rest, not exercising or sleeping correctly, you need to change that first.
Make sure you’re hydrating with lots of fluids, eat your fruits and vegetables, and do everything right. I promise you, you will see great results.
