Heart 2 Heart’s List of 3 Liver-Healthy Superfoods

Anti-inflammatory drugs like Advil or Aleve can have an effect on your liver. Our livers act as our own personal body guards. They clear toxins from our system, and keep our bodies from becoming lethargic or sluggish. Damaged livers can bring on allergies, migraines, and stomach problems so it’s important to keep this vital organ healthy. Whole body health is important to Heart 2 Heart, so here are a few foods you can eat to help improve the health of your liver:

 

Avocado

What’s not to love about guacamole? This green mexican pear shaped fruit helps your body make an antioxidant known as glutathione. It helps our livers eliminate damaging and dangerous substances from our bodies within our bloodstream.

 

Green Tea

The benefits of green tea are plentiful. It can reduce the chance of you getting type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease and has even been found to reduce body weight. The antioxidant, catechin, in this drink are what help improve the health of the liver.

 

Grapefruit

This sour but sweet bright orange and pink citrus fruit encourages the liver to rid itself of bad toxins and carcinogens. Carcinogens are a main contributor to many forms of cancer. An extra reason to eat more grapefruits is to get your daily dose of vitamin C!
