There are foods that can help cleanse your liver naturally. The consumption of processed foods and fried foods loaded with harmful cholesterol filled cooking oils is one of the biggest challenges we all face every day. The preservatives and additives in our foods contribute heavily to our early demise. Not to mention all the pesticides used to grow our foods. Our livers become over-worked and not as efficient. So every once in a while we need to give our bodies a break to recover from the bombardment of poisons it receives daily. This helps the body remain healthy.

The liver is the key organ that helps our bodies remove toxins from our bodies. It is the liver that allows our bodies to absorb nutrients from the food we eat. To help detoxify our livers it is important to include certain foods in our diet. There are many foods that can help cleanse the livers.

Garlic contains selenium, a mineral which enhances antioxidants to detoxify the liver. The essential B6 vitamin which is an anti-inflammatory that helps your liver stay healthy and an enzyme that helps the body flush out toxins are in garlic also. Garlic delivers the essential amino acid arginine to the liver - which relaxes blood vessels and lowers blood pressure.

Grapefruit is full of vitamin C and glutathione, the latter an important antioxidant. Glutathione is important because it produces proteins and chemicals that are important to the body for the repair and rebuilding of tissues as well as building a stronger immune system. Fresh grapefruit juice will boost the production of liver detoxification enzymes which aid in the removal of both toxins and carcinogens.
Turmeric is a helpful spice, from the ginger family, that assists enzymes to remove carcinogens thus aiding in the detoxification of the liver.
Leafy Green Vegetables siphon off toxins from the blood stream - they neutralize metals, pesticides and chemicals. Eating more of these foods offer a potent means of protecting your liver and will increase the flow of bile from your body.

Carrots and beets are high in plant flavonoids and aid in cleansing and purifying your blood - which will boost liver function and enhance the production of body nutrients. Eating both carrots and beets will improve your overall liver function.

Cruciferous Vegetables like cauliflower and broccoli aid the production of enzymes by increasing the quantity of glucosinolate (a bitter sulfur-containing glycoside in cruciferous plants) in your liver. These enzymes remove both carcinogens and toxins in general from your body which reduces the risk of getting some cancers.

Avocados help the body produce glutathione which helps cleanse toxins from the liver. Other helpful foods include apples, lemons, limes and cabbage which aid in having a healthy liver. Look them up on the internet to learn about their particulars. For more information on how to cleanse your liver go to internet sites like:
