Detox Dieting


certain foods in your liver detox diet will improve the effectiveness of that diet.

The liver helps the body detoxify everything you eat and drink. However, the liver itself

occasionally needs to be detoxified. If you don’t regularly detox your liver it have a

buildup of toxins and fat, which inhibits its ability to help the rest of the body.

In a sense, this buildup of toxins and fat overwhelms the liver. Imagine the oil tank in

your car. Occasionally, you need to change the oil because the oil becomes dirty from

being used so much. If you don’t change the oil your car will eventually start showing

problems because of the buildup of used oil. The same holds true for your liver and the

rest of your body. When the liver has too much fat and toxins in it you could develop

fatty liver disease or cirrhosis of the liver.

Fortunately, there are certain foods out there that aid the liver in detoxifying itself,

which up the workload of the liver to help detoxify the rest of the body.

Green tea – and tea in general – contains antioxidants, a small amount of caffeine, and

lots of nutrients. Green tea helps detoxify the liver significantly. The antioxidants help

support a healthy immune system, which in turn helps support a healthy liver. This is why

green tea can play an important role in any liver detox diet.

Adding green tea to your diet can help cleanse the body. Its antioxidant properties

benefit the liver and many other parts of the body!
Your body is composed of a network of organs and other systems. It’s important to keep

this in mind as you focus on your health. If your liver, kidneys, or immune system are

malfunctioning you experience symptoms in other parts of your body. Thus, if you want

to detoxify your liver it’s also important to ingest nutrients that help the other organs

in the body. This will help your liver detox diet have a stronger and longer lasting

effect.

If you aren’t getting a healthy amount of leafy green vegetables your body could be

lacking in chlorophylls, certain important vitamins, and other minerals which support a

healthy body. Some studies show that heavily cooking vegetables could reduce the amount of

nutrients those vegetables provide. That’s why eating these vegetables raw is preferred,

but you don’t have to have raw vegetables 100% of the time..
