How to Clean the Liver:
The foods described below should become an integral part of your diet because they are the best for cleaning and restoring the liver.
The active agent in turmeric, curcumin, has numerous health benefits, including prevention of liver damage. It also restores the liver function with its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Note: curcumin is absorbed most efficiently when consumed in combination with black pepper.
Also known as Marian thistle, this plant is very efficient in protecting the liver. It contains silymarin, a powerful anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antiviral, and anti-fibrotic agent who protects the liver against damage caused by alcohol, drugs, toxins and viruses.
Even cooked, artichokes are richer in antioxidants than broccoli, raw garlic, and asparagus. They help reduce the levels of ‘bad’ LDL cholesterol and promote the production bile, alkaline fluid that aids digestion.
