Your liver is like the maid of your body, cleaning up all the toxins you put into it. The liver keeps all internal systems running smoothly. The modern diet, environmental pollutants, and our increasing dependence on toxic personal care products have put our livers on serious overtime.

So, what can you do about it? Well, you could try a quality liver detox supplement, or you could use some items found at your local health food store, your grocery store, or even some that are already in your kitchen. Here is how to clean your liver with 5 common food items.

How To Naturally Detox Your Liver

1. Warm Lemon Water – Warm lemon water is a great way to detox your liver every single morning. This isn’t lemonade, so don’t add sugar or anything else. Just purified water and a healthy dose of fresh lemon juice. Some experts, like author A.F. Beddoe who wrote the book Biological Ionization as Applied to Human Nutrition, also believe that the liver produces more enzymes in response to water with lemon than to any other food.

2. Garlic – Add some garlic to your cooking or thinly slice a clove into your next salad. Garlic contains sulfur compounds that can help activate enzymes in the liver. It contains allicin and selenium, which are both good for liver protection.

3. Avocados – As if you need another reason to add avocados to your diet, a Japanese study found that avocados contain compounds that can protect the liver from damage. When compared with 21 other fruits, avocados had the most promise in protecting the liver from galactosamine, a “powerful” toxin that has been shown to produce a liver damage much like human viral hepatitis.

4. Cilantro – This versatile herb can be added to just about any dish, including salads or smoothies. This herb can help remove heavy metals from the body, something your liver could be struggling with right now.

5. Turmeric – Another powerful spice with a long list of benefits, turmeric is said to not only protect the liver from damage, but also encourage regeneration of liver cells. In addition, it increases natural bile production and aids in keeping the body toxin-free.

  4. I use Milk Thistle every day, and many other supplements many people wouldve never heard of. It activates the enzymes in youre liver that detoxify youre body but by ten fold. Vitamin E oil will take out all the bad oils in youre body.

  5. With no gall bladder, this must work harder. I three of us, only two blood related, had the gall bladder surgery within a couple years of each other. I rarely ate fatty/greasy foods, so when I did, oops, severe pain. The 2nd time was when I bought a large bucket of fried chicken [not naming co.] for company. Huh! That was bad. I didn’t want any more of that. Now without it, i try to stay away from that kind of food, as I don’t, of course, have a g.b.to process it for the liver.

  6. why doesn’t the liver detox automatically? Isn’t the body continually trying to purify? To remain strong and healthy? Even with the added load of new pollutants, why can’t the liver cope automatically?

  8. Or, you could get some ‘Fall’ dug Dandelion Root, wash it, cut it up and steep it (along with some young dried leaf from Spring)… then fill a liter or so and keep it in the fridge, sipping about 4 to 6oz. morning and same evening for a few days every month. Root cleans the liver (and therefore blood, also strengthening the arteries etc.). Leaf detoxifies the urinary tract and strengthens the bladder, kidneys and all! (It really helps rid the lymph of all the toxins built up there, also! Too easy, friends! 😉

  9. This is so true – animals, too! Feed your pets well (like the BARF or Raw Food Diet) and have an animal acupuncturist give them a liver cleanse once a year – they will live twice, even three times as long and be super healthy, active, and responsive. Try it!!!!!
