Detox better: Empower your liver!
Without toxins being regularly removed from our system, we would not be able to survive. With partial or poor elimination too, the quality of life takes a serious blow… Read on to understand the role this vital organ plays and how to support it to stay healthy and active.
One of the most important organs in our body, the liver carries out more than 500 functions to keep us healthy! However, it’s most significant task is to clean blood through detoxification – the bile produced helps rid our system of waste through excreta and urine (via the kidney). Essentially, the liver is our inbuilt detoxifier. A poorly functioning liver can spell grave health issues - from fatty liver diseases and jaundice to chronic hepatitis, cirrhosis and liver cancer.
Alcohol is the largest contributor to liver related diseases in our country, but the high level of environmental pollution and other lifestyle excesses too contribute significantly to pulling down the health of your liver.
Do your liver a good turn. Here’s how…
Eat more of these foods
Certain foods are particularly good for the liver – they help in pushing up production of liver enzymes and are anti-toxic themselves. Believe it or not, your morning cup of joe does your liver a good turn. Coffee helps prevent the build-up of fat and collagen – key markers of liver disease. Garlic is a great liver cleanser. Green tea, broccoli, berries, grapes, beetroot, nuts, fatty fish and olive oil are some other foods good for the liver.
Another factor which is particularly relevant in today’s times that also works in favour of the liver, is boosting one’s immunity. In fact it’s a symbiotic relationship as liver cells are responsible for the production of immunity proteins in the body, and the organ itself contains in-house immune cells.
Following a lifestyle that pushes up your immunity levels supports and strengthens the liver’s role in the immune system.
