Healthy Tips for your Liver – Part 1

There’s nothing difficult in keeping your liver healthy and in good shape as it’s all about a healthy lifestyle. Everything you drink and eat, including medicine, passes through it. You surely require treating it right so it can stay healthy and do its job rightfully. It helps in cleansing your blood by getting free of harmful chemicals that your body makes. It produces liquid called bile, which helps in breaking down fat from food. And also stores sugar called glucose, which gives you a quick energy booster when required.

Here are some healthy tips for your liver :

  • Say Goodbye to Bad Fat – Good fat is good, but bad fat is really bad. If the food is fried, it likely has unhealthy, oxidised oils. Skip it! Stick to good, clean fats like coconut oil, avocados, salmon and olive oil.
  • Skip the Late Night Snack – The liver’s regenerative cycle is between 11pm and 3am. If your body is busy digesting food at this time, it disrupts your sleep and the detoxification process. Aim for a 10pm bedtime and 10-12 hours between dinner and breakfast. (Small bedtime snacks allowed to support blood sugar balance).
  • Be a Toxin Avenger – Make it easier on your liver by reducing the toxins coming into your body. Buy organic foods, drink filtered water, use glass containers for food storage instead of plastic, and choose less toxic skin care products.
  • Fabulous Fibre – Food rich in soluble fibre help support your liver by binding toxins and moving them on out. Add in chia, flax, fruits, vegetables, beans and oats for a fibre furled toxic flush every single day.
  • Herb Alert – Milk thistle, with the active constituents of silymarin, has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties that support the liver. It may help the liver repair itself by growing new cells.

  1. Thanks for this! Really helpful information. There is a quote somewhere in my memory, not my own, “take care of your liver and it will take care of you” This post reminds me of that quote. Thank you.🙏

      Yes this quote holds true in so many ways Suzette. One of its main functions is to process nutrients from the food you eat and to flush out toxins. But that’s only the beginning. Your liver also builds proteins, makes bile, maintains blood sugar levels, and much more. That’s why a healthy liver is crucial for overall health and wellbeing.

      Yes. One serving of almonds equals one ounce, about 23 almonds or ¼ cup. It is a calorie-dense food but also nutrient-dense with the majority of its fat being monounsaturated. Check if you are sensitive to MUFA’s before consuming. If you not 6 almonds in a day are good.

      Excellent. This combination works well for detoxifying the liver and eliminating toxins from the body. In a glass of warm water and add the juice of half a lemon to it. Mix it well and drink it in the morning. Have 10-12 glasses of warm water daily.

    Great post! The liver is so important in detecting our bodies from the harmful chemicals that have infiltrated our environment. Keeping your liver in tip top shape is important. You can also do detox baths to help assist your liver in the detoxifying process.

      The liver is one of the largest organs in the body. It has many important metabolic functions. It converts the nutrients in our diets into substances that the body can use, stores these substances, and supplies cells with them when needed

      Yes Stewart. Thank you for reminding us that. According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), “tap water can reasonably be expected to contain at least small amounts of some contaminants.” Drinking water that has unsafe levels of these contaminants can result in both acute and chronic health effects, including cancer, liver or kidney problems, and many others.

    Its great that we inform each other about the importance of healthy lifestyle. Its the liver that processess every food we eat. So, absolute care must be taken for the liver. We sometimes do not care for what the liver does in order to sustain us. If we love and care for our liver, we must eat and drink what the liver loves only. Thanks for the insights you gave us

      I agree Will. As long as your liver stays healthy, it’s easy not to notice. Although your liver works “behind the scenes”, it’s also one of the largest and most important organs in your body. It performs more than 300 functions, and helps some of your other organs do their jobs.
