Natural ways to support a healthy liver


Natural ways to support a healthy liver
Summer is here and with it comes the potential for fun, frolics and a little
more alcohol than usual. Whether it’s festival beers, holiday cocktails or a few
too many Pimms’ at the family BBQ, with increased alcohol consumption
comes an increased workload for your liver.
Our livers are constantly working hard, filtering our blood, producing bile
essential for the digestive process and regulating our blood sugar level. Its
work is essential for keeping us healthy.
Here are a few simple diet and lifestyle tweaks that can help you support your
liver health and minimise the effects of your summer excesses.
Liver loving foods
Increase your fibre intake. Fibre binds to waste products and helps to remove
them from the body but many of us don’t eat enough. If we have a diet
lacking in fibre then it can prevent healthy elimination of waste from the
digestive system, closely linked with the liver. Fibre is naturally present in
many plant foods so base meals around plenty of vegetables particularly
good sources include broccoli, Brussel sprouts, avocados and kale. Vegetables
also provide liver protecting antioxidants.
Drinking green tea is good for your liver. Green tea contains catechins – an
antioxidant found to encourage healthy liver function and help to protect the
liver from toxic substances. In the summer months, try making a pitcher of
green tea and cooling it in the fridge with some slices of lemon.
Drinking optimal amounts of water supports the body’s natural processes of
waste elimination. Be mindful of your water intake as you may require more
during hotter weather. Aim for a minimum of two litres per day to support
your liver in effectively excreting toxic substances in your body.
Liver loving supplements
Turmeric is a bright orange spice which has been long used in Indian cuisine

and Ayurvedic medicine. Turmeric is reported to have the ability to protect the
liver from damage. Animal studies have shown that mice fed curcumin, one of
the active ingredients in Turmeric, suffered less liver damage over time
compared with those on a normal diet [1]. Curcumin has even been found to
have a beneficial effect in the treatment of liver disorders [2].
The beneficial compounds in turmeric are notoriously poorly absorbed by the
body, so opt for a supplement such as BetterYou’s Turmeric Oral Spray (RRP
£17.95) which has been specifically developed to guarantee optimal
absorption (via the inner cheek) and deliver maximum benefits faster than
tablets and capsules.
What to watch
We know that consuming alcohol to excess will increase the workload of the
liver and could eventually cause it serious damage. There’s a difference
between a little over indulgence every now and then and consistently drinking
to excess. Aim to keep within the government’s recommended alcohol intake
most weeks – this is 14 units, the equivalent to six small glasses of wine or
six pints of average strength beer.
Watch your sugar intake. The liver is responsible for converting excess sugar
into fat and if we consume sugar to excess it can end up becoming stored in
the liver. Your liver’s health is yet another reason to keep those biscuits,
cakes and sweets to a minimum.
Your liver is an amazing organ and is surprisingly effective at regenerating
itself. Support it by eating fresh, natural, whole foods and avoiding processed
foods where possible. Drinking plenty of water and minimising your intake of
toxic chemicals will keep your liver happy through the summer.
