Many complicated liver detox approaches exist, but eating four relatively common foods is a simple and easily accessible way to help the liver process toxins.

Every branch of natural healthcare seems to have its own perspective on how to help detoxify the liver. Ranging from juice fasts to herbal supplements to saunas to enemas, there is more than one route for helping the liver eliminate toxins from the body. Although several different approaches can be beneficial to the liver’s well-being, it is easy to overlook the fact that certain everyday foods aid in liver detoxification.

The practice of detoxifying the body to rid it of unhealthy toxins has been around for centuries. Technically, toxins are anything that can potentially harm the body, including waste products that result from normal cell activity, such as ammonia, lactic acid and homocysteine, and human-made toxins that we are exposed to in our environment, food, and water. The liver is the body’s first line of defense against toxins, functioning as a filter in preventing toxic substances from accumulating in the blood stream. Unfortunately, a sluggish liver impairs this organ’s vital cleansing function – causing a backup of toxins, a potentially harmful situation.

    Lemon peel contains limonene which activate several of the Phase I and Phase II liver detox enzymes responsible for clearing toxins. Good to include some rind when juicing or blending lemons into a green smoothie.
    The terpenes of d-Limonene can literally dissolve fat sludge in the liver too.

    Fine, but HOW MUCH? Juice of one lemon per day or one apple per day seems pretty easy but what about sea vegetables and broccoli sprouts?
