For October, since we are giving discounts on our liver tests and it is healthy liver month, we thought of what better way it is, then to give you guys 9 tips to keep your liver healthy and alive.
Below are a few tips that will allow you to keep your liver healthy and active for this up and coming fall season.
Avoiding Alcohol or Caffeine
Overall, don’t drink or take anything that you are intolerant to. These can have adverse effect to your stomach and liver. Chew your food well to aid in the digestion process.
Drink plenty of waters a day. At least 2.5 liters is considered ideal. If you can, cut down on stimulants like tea. Nothing beats pure water in cleansing you from within.
Eat foods that are rich in natural detox substances like cabbage, broccoli, kale, Brussel sprouts, and soy bean products. These are rich in vitamins C, E, B, zinc, and magnesium. Antioxidants stop free radicals from damaging your tissue.
In tea or tablet form, try taking Echinacea, milk thistle or dandelion root. These are great blood cleansers, as well as skin tonics.
Avoid Antibiotics or Antacids
If possible, try to take these when it’s really necessary. Antibiotics destroy good bacteria that helps your gut eliminate toxins. Antacids reduce your body’s natural acid that helps in proper digestion.
