The Liver has over 500 functions making it a super important organ designed to help you live a happy healthy life. after all, the word “live” is in the word “liver”. It’s near impossible to live a happy, healthy life without a happy, healthy liver.
The liver helps in eliminating toxins that damage the liver cells. Feeding the liver foods that boost the detoxification abilities is key to healing a toxic fatty liver.
Below are 6 foods that can help heal a toxic fatty liver.
Lemons – When you wake up of the morning you want an 8 oz glass of warm water and a fresh lemon that’s been washed. Cut a quarter of the lemon into a wedge, squeeze that into the warm water then droop the whole lemon wedge in the water. There are oils on the lemon which helps reduce inflammation.
Cruciferous Vegetables – Kale, cauliflower, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, and red cabbage are excellent Sulphur compounds for healing a toxic fatty liver. If you have autoimmune thyroid conditions such as Grave’s disease or Hashimoto’s or you have hyperthyroidism cruciferous vegetables are ok for you to eat.
If you have primary hypothyroidism you want to limit the number of cruciferous vegetables you eat. Asparagus or green leafy vegetables are a great alternative for those with primary hypothyroidism.
Apples – Apples contain malic acid which thins the bile. The reason that’s important is that your liver dumps toxins into your bile, the bile moves the toxins into the small intestines which are then excreted out of the body.
Pickled and Fermented Foods – These foods aid in the digestive process. Toxins from the digestive process are filtered through the liver. Adding fermented vegetables increase your ability to digest your food and makes your digestion much cleaner which means less stress on the liver.
Berries – Strawberries, raspberries, and wild blueberries help aid the body’s detoxification pathways. Berries are rich in antioxidants which help in preventing damage to cells caused by free radicals that compromise liver function. Wild blueberries can also help pull heavy metals out of your body.
