The liver regulates almost all the metabolic processes of the body. It is responsible for getting rid of toxins from the body. But what if the liver gets infected with toxins? To regenerate the functioning of the liver, a full liver cleanse is a must. Let us take a look at some ways to detox your liver.

1. Milk Thistle

Milk Thistle is a herb that is commonly used for treating liver problems such as jaundice, cirrhosis, hepatitis, etc. Silymarin is an active ingredient that has antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties. Apart from detoxifying the liver, it is also known for lowering bad cholesterol.

2. Juice Cleansing

The best thing about fresh fruit juices is that they are entirely fat-free. To carry out the elimination of toxins from the body, consider mixing raw egg yolk with the juice. Juices enable easy absorption and assimilation of nutrients by the body. Although you should avoid processed juices as they contain additives and preservatives which can further contribute to the presence of toxins in the liver.

3. Get Sufficient Sleep

When we are asleep, we are in a parasympathetic state. Detox can only occur while we are asleep. The body heals and restores when the body is in a complete state of rest. Therefore, to carry out the detox in a hassle-free manner, it is necessary to get sufficient sleep, at least 7-8 hours.

4. Say No To Alcohol

As far as the improvement of liver health is concerned, cutting down the alcohol intake works well. But here we are talking about a full liver cleanse. For a total liver detox, it is essential that you eliminate alcohol by following the required steps under the supervision of an expert.

5. Avoid Toxicity In The Environment

If you are a regular user of room fresheners and other aerosols, insecticides, pesticides, spray paints, or anything that can cause the entering of toxins in the body through respiration, consider taking precautionary measures like wearing a mask.

6. Consume Vegetables Meant For Detox

Raw or boiled vegetables such as beets, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, carrots, cucumber, green leafy vegetables, etc. are known for successfully eliminating toxins from the liver. If you want to spice it up, consider adding some herbal spices, mint, lemon, or parsley for some extra flavor.

7. Cut Down On Visceral Fat

Visceral Fat is also referred to as ‘deep fat’ which is responsible for imparting an overweight or flabby appearance to the body. It rests under the skin and is known to increase the inflammatory cytokines levels in the body. The most critical step to reduce visceral fat is to cut down the intake of carbs.

8. Enhance Vitamin B and C Intake

Maintaining an optimal level of vitamin B ensures the efficiency of cells to break down the fats into a soluble form quickly. This way, fat does not accumulate around the liver. Vitamin C protects the body from free radicals as well as fat accumulation and strengthens the immune system.

9. Consume Healthy Fats

Even though a fat diet is to be avoided at any cost, complete elimination of fats is not an option as it is an essential requirement of the body. Since bile is responsible for breaking down the fats, it is necessary to consume healthy fats that are readily soluble. Some excellent sources of healthy fats are almonds, walnuts, coconut, hemp, flax, chia, olives, avocado, pumpkin seeds, and sunflower seeds.

If the functioning of the liver is compromised, the entire metabolism of the body gets disrupted. Keeping in mind the number of functions the liver performs, it is essential to maintain optimal liver health.
