Seven ways to keep your Liver healthy

Liver is an essential organ as it plays a vital role in ensuring the smooth functioning of the body. Tucked under the ribcage, liver filters blood coming from the digestive tract before it travels to the rest of the body. Additionally, liver metabolises medications, detoxifies chemicals, secretes a bile that helps in digestion of lipids in the small intestine and is also crucial for the transformation of food into energy. Ancient Chinese believed that a physician who knew how to keep liver in control  knew how to treat the various other diseases and conditions. That’s the importance of liver in the human body.

If you want to keep your liver stronger, healthier and cleaner, here are 7 tips that must follow. 

  • Eat a lot of vegetables: Leafy greens, collard greens, beets, arugula, carrots, kale, onion, garlic and cabbage increases the liver’s detoxification ability. These vegetables provide the required amount of nutrients to the body while undergoing liver detoxification. Remember, a deficiency of even a single nutrient can interrupt the natural detoxification processes seriously. 
  • Exercise regularly: Your physical activity is directly linked to a healthy cardiovascular system, healthy body weight, and normal blood sugar levels in the body. In fact, regular exercises promote healthy and strong liver. According to the Centres for Disease Control and Prevention, an adult between 18 and 64 years of age must aim at 150 minutes of weekly activity, or 30 minutes of workout five times a week. 
  • Choose herbs: Traditionally, many herbs have been used to promote natural detoxification processes of the liver. Milk thistle, globe artichoke, greater celandine, dandelion root, Schisandra and turmeric have the rich history of traditional use. They are protective and also helps in stimulating liver bile production for healthy fat digestion. In addition, its active constituents support detoxification process and promote normal cell regeneration in the liver. 
  • Choose organic crops: The quality of your diet plays an important role in keeping the liver stronger and healthier. Many times, conventional crops are sprayed with chemicals which are more likely to carry toxins. To avoid exposure to unknown substances that the liver would have removed, choose fresh produce or organic foods. When consuming conventional produce, ensure to scrub thoroughly, and peel the skin.
  • Reduce alcohol consumption: There are many causes that lead to liver damage, one of them is excess consumption of alcohol. Although scientists are not certain why alcohol is directly linked to liver damage, it is reported that toxins get into the gut while hurting the intestine. Further, alcohol releases toxins in the gut and travels into the liver. Therefore, excessive consumption of alcohol and its damage caused to the liver is described as “alcoholic liver disease”.
  • Chemical-free products: Use chemical-free body care products to minimize the chemical load that liver has to deal with. As skin and hair can absorb everything that is applied on to it, chemicals end up in the blood stream which is further cleared out by the liver. Therefore, make sure to use liver-friendly products like natural shampoo and conditioner. 
  • Supply your body with enough minerals: Minerals are very important for liver detoxification process. Important minerals for liver detoxification include magnesium, potassium, sodium, calcium, copper, iron, zinc, manganese and selenium. Ensure to consume foods that are rich in minerals. Opt for liquid-based supplements as they are easily digestible.

The above-mentioned are some easy tips which can be easily incorporated into your daily life. Simply choose 2-3 options and implement into your lifestyle. You will certainly witness the changes within a few days. 

* Use of herbs and other suggested products must be done under medical supervision.
