Your liver is the largest solid organ in your body and does an incredible job working hard to keep you in tip top health.
It’s responsible for cleaning blood, storing vitamins and minerals, breaking down, balancing and creating nutrients for the body to use and helping your immune system fight infection.
Poor treatment of the liver can increase the risk of obesity, cardiovascular disease, headaches, digestive problems and allergies.
There are certain things you can do to keep your liver nice and healthy - avoiding drinking too much alcohol, maintaining a healthy diet, taking regular exercise to keep your weight under control and drinking plenty of water.
Ray Chung, Medical director of the liver transplant program at Massachusetts General Hospital says: ‘Taking care of your liver is far more about avoiding what’s bad than it is about eating or drinking things that are particularly nourishing to the liver.’
While there are no magic foods to protect your liver from disease and damage, incorporating these cleansing superfoods will help support a healthy liver function.
