Your Liver Has A Tough Job To Do - Help It Along With These Foods

Garlic

Sure, it might make your breath whiffy if you eat too much of it, but garlic is sweet as for your liver - it contains sulphurous compounds which activate liver enzymes that help flush out toxins. Garlic also contains the nutrients allicin and selenium, which help protect the liver from damage.

Description: Garlic — known to some as the stinking rose — is used by many cuisines around the world to add flavour to food, but it's also been used as a natural medicinal ingredient for centuries, both in its fresh plant form and as a supplement.

Alternatives: other foods containing sulphurous compounds include onion, egg yolks and dark leafy cruciferous veg - egg, broccoli, kale, and cauliflower.

Turmeric

Turmeric contains curcumin - a pigment that gives this spice its orange colour. Curcumin is a powerful anti­inflammatory which helps to improve liver function and detoxification.

 

Alternatives: turmeric is also found in mustard and curry powder.

 

 Avocado

Avocados help the body to produce the antioxidant glutathione, which helps the liver filter out the bad stuff. Eating one or two avocadoes a week could help repair liver damage - research from Shizuoka University in Japan found that extracts of avocado may be able to lessen the liver damage caused by the hepatitis viruses.

Description: Avocados are a great source of lutein, a carotenoid that works as an antioxidant and helps protect against eye disease. They also contain the related carotenoids zeaxanthin, alpha-carotene and beta-carotene, as well as tocopherol (vitamin E).
