We tend to work on skin and hair health, immunity, and other such aspects of health and fitness when it comes to diet. But how often do we think about liver health? It is rare—the liver is the organ that performs multiple tasks right from processing nutrients to removing toxins. Therefore, it is important to keep your liver healthy. There are many active ingredients that help protect the health of the liver.
Beetroot helps to improve liver activity. It enhances the secretion of bile (liver enzyme), which helps in the digestion and removal of toxins from the body. Further, beetroot is a source of potential antioxidants, such as vitamin A and vitamin C, that protect the liver from damage.1
Nuts are a rich source of healthy fats that protect the liver from damage due to inflammation. Nuts such as walnuts are rich in an amino acid called arginine that plays a significant role in removing toxins through chemical reactions in the liver.1–3
Green leafy vegetables, such as spinach and kale, are rich in chlorophyll (green plant pigment). Chlorophyll helps the liver with the efficient removal of toxins and heavy metals. Thus, it acts as a detoxifying agent for the liver.1,2
Garlic is rich in antioxidants, such as vitamin A, vitamin C, and allicin, that protect the liver from damage. It also contains selenium, which acts as a detoxifying agent and assists the liver in the removal of toxins.1
Herbs and spices, such as dandelion roots, ginger, and turmeric, are powerful antioxidants and detoxifying agents. They help the liver in removing toxins, processing nutrients, secreting digestive enzymes, and protecting the liver from damage.1–3
