I’ve said this a couple of times. The liver is one of the most important organs in our body.
Consider it as a multitasking organ. Whatever the body needs, here is the liver to handle things.
It has more than 400 functions including filtering out the waste products and toxins from the body.
Like any other organ in us, liver too has the primary function. That’s converting toxins into the safe material so that it can be excreted later.
Protecting the liver means everything. You can do that by consuming a healthy diet rich in nutrients.
The food contains toxins. Some kinds less than other, but all of them are in the same cycle.
But first, let me check the symptoms of a weak liver and toxins full fat cells
Abdominal pain, constipation, gasses, diarrhea, bloating
Depression and anxiety
Lethargy/feeling drained/brain fog
Migraines/headaches behind the eyes/dull headaches relieved with rest
Chronic muscle or joint pain
Weight gain without any evident reason
Chronic bad breath
Acne or skin disorders
Issues digesting fats
Gall bladder removed
Now, after you notice these symptoms, you need to stimulate your liver to function better and eliminate the toxins.
Here is what you can do:
- Reduce your fructose consumption (20-25 gr. per day)
- Reduce your alcohol intake
- Remove GMO products and buying only organic foods
- Eat a balanced diet
- Use food sources of sulfur
- Increase the consumption of healthy fats
- Consume enough fiber
- Avoid inflammatory oils
- Increase the consumption of green leafy vegetables
- Avoid refined sugar
- Eat animal-based and plant-based sources of amino acids
- Drink sufficient amounts of pure water
There you have it. If you have these symptoms, please don’t panic. Check the health of your liver with your doctor before bringing any conclusions.
