The 9 Best Detoxifying Foods To Support Your Liver

The 9 Best Detoxifying Foods To Support Your Liver

Your overall sense of health and wellbeing relies heavily on the thriving function of your liver and its ability to function at optimum capacity.

The liver is your largest internal organ, and it’s running itself ragged managing hundreds of bodily functions, controlling your blood sugar, regulating your fat storage, supporting your metabolism, breaking down food, determining whether something is a nutrient to absorb or a toxin to eliminate. Basically, your liver is a multitasking machine and quite frankly, busy as hell.

Here are the 9 best foods you should be incorporating into your diet to show your liver a bit of TLC:

1. Cruciferous veggies

Broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, and Brussel sprouts are some of the most effective foods at removing toxins from the body. They’re brimming with glucosinolates, which will support your liver in ridding the sh*t that accumulates in your system.

2. Fermented foods

Aside from being gut-health gems and immune-boosting powerhouses, fermented foods like kimchi, sauerkraut, and jun tea also help your liver to banish any build-up of heavy metals in your system.

3. Dark, leafy greens

All of the major suspects should be your go-to’s here; kale, spinach, and rocket are all rich in plant chlorophylls, which do a stellar job at detoxing the body of chemicals. 

4. Coriander

The merits of its taste divide rooms, but the health benefits of coriander are utterly indisputable. It’s the real MVP when it comes to supporting the removal of heavy metals and clearing excess hormones from the body. Basically, if you hate the taste—suck it up, sista. 

5. Spices

The simplest way of enhancing all of your meals to support healthy liver function is by adding a sh*t ton of liver-friendly spices. Go crazy on turmeric, ginger, cayenne pepper, parsley, and cinnamon for a detoxifying boost. Better yet, sprinkle all of the above spices on some coriander. Kidding, we do a lot of weird stuff in the name of health and wellness but even we would probably draw the line there.

6. Seeds

Pumpkin, chia, hemp, and flax seeds are all super high in selenium and minerals, which are required co-factors for the detoxification process. Get greedy on seedy’s!

7. ACV

Okay, we could probably harp on about the health benefits of apple cider vinegar until the cows come home, but we’ll just say that it’s great for the ol’ liver. It’s super alkalizing and boasts live digestive enzymes, making it a dream for detoxing.

8. Berries

All of them! Blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, strawberries; need we go on? They’re brimming with phytonutrients that promote healthy liver function.

9. Beets

And beet greens, while we’re on the subject. They’re high in betaine which assists the liver and bile ducts to function properly. 

Incorporate some of these and we guarantee you’ll be well on your way to fixing your relationship with your liver in no time.
