A More Lively Liver

Supplements

Turmeric root

The liver is the largest gland in the body. It’s what the body relies on for filtration and other metabolic functions. Here’s how to keep your liver healthy.

Quit drinking alcohol or reduce the amount you drink. Drinking alcohol can contribute to a fatty liver.

Eat raw vegetables, especially those high in Vitamin K and sulfur compounds like kale, broccoli, cauliflower and cabbage. Sulfur compounds help improve liver function.

Incorporate foods into your diet that support the body’s natural detoxification processes. These include garlic, apples, beets, brown rice and grapefruit. Also, drink plenty of water! It flushes out waste.

Add turmeric to your diet. Turmeric is a powerful antioxidant that promotes liver function and increases bile production. Side note: Turmeric is being studied as a potential cancer blocker and also for treating Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s patients.

Add milk thistle too, as it is a strong anti-toxin.

*Check with your doctor before making changes to your diet.
