Most of us don’t think about the foods that will keep our liver strong. But, if you have been using a diet that is good for your overall health, then, most likely you are helping your liver.
Oils for a healthy liver are flax seed oil or fish oil ands should be used every day. Stay away from margarine or any other artificial butter since they contain chemicals the liver cannot recognize as food. Sunflower, safflower, and other seed oils should be kept in the refrigerator to keep them from becoming rancid.
Fat accumulates in the liver. The liver is responsible for breaking down the fat and using it for energy. Accumulated fat in the liver can become rancid producing free radicals that damage liver cells.
People only need about 2-3 ounces of protein, but if you do physical labor you need more. If there this undigested protein it is decomposed by bad bacteria creating toxic matter. These toxins can be absorbed into the blood and cause the liver extra work in detoxifying them.
You can support liver activity by eating foods such as brussel sprouts, broccoli cabbage, seeds and nuts and Lecithin (ask your doctor first).
Reduce or eliminate the use of processed sugar since it interferes with enzyme activity throughout your body. Use fruits, whole grains, barley malt, rice syrup, dates, dried fruit, and honey instead.
Ask your doctor about liver health.
