Without a properly functional liver, your health is in huge trouble. A liver disease can cause complications, lots of them. Ultimately, those conditions become untreatable and can become fatal too.

The bottom line- you need to take care of your liver. Even if it is in no danger that you know of, it is not an organ that you want to take lightly.

How to Take Care of Your Liver

Good question- one that has many answers. So let’s pick organic care for this space.

There are many ways to take care of your liver, to keep it healthy for longer. However, making slight changes in what you eat and how you eat it on a regular basis can do many wonders which will last longer than others.

Now, you must understand that this isn’t a diet renewal for you. You are not being asked to throw away all your refrigerator contents and empty all your kitchen drawers. These suggestions are about assistant food items that you can involve in your daily meals and make them more liver-friendly.

  1. Garlic

Garlic is a powerful antioxidant. It expels the toxic substances away from the body, ensuring that no other organ gets affected.

Garlic has allin, and when it’s chopped, minced, or crushed, this allin gets converted into an active ingredient called allicin. Allicin helps the liver in numerous ways as it is an antioxidant, antibiotic substance with anti-fungal properties.

Garlic also has arginine and selenium. Arginine is good at relaxing blood vessels. Selenium facilitates the action of antioxidants.

If not for the sake of the proverbial relationship between apples and doctors, then you must eat an apple a day because it relieves your liver of some load.

Pectin is a natural constituent of apples that helps in cleaning the digestive tract of harmful elements.

  4. Green Tea

It's rich in antioxidants like catechin. It can remove free radicals from your liver which in turn can stimulate the overall liver functional efficiency.
