Fight inflammation


Allergy season is likely to come in with a bang in many locations, thanks to a deluge of moisture in many locations. Be ready with a strong immune system. One of the key components of your immune system is your liver, your person filtering system. It helps keep you healthy.

One of the liverís job is to remove harmful material from the bloodstream. It also helps our immune system fight infections and removes bacteria from the blood. The liver protects the immune system from becoming overloaded.

Insure your liverís health by avoiding excessive consumption of tobacco, alcohol, coffee and white sugar, adding in daily walks or other low impact exercises, and drinking lots of water.

Eating certain foods may help keep your liver performing well. Here are the top 15 fresh foods for your liverís good health.

Garlic:

Garlic helps your liver activate enzymes that can flush out toxins.

Grapefruit:

Eating or drinking grapefruit juice can help your liver flush out carcinogens and toxins.

Beets and carrots:

High in plant-flavonoids and beta-carotene, beets and carrots can help stimulate and improve overall liver function.

Apples:

Pectin-rich apples help the body cleanse and release toxins from the digestive tract which makes it easier for the liver to handle the toxic load during the cleansing process.

Olive Oil:

Cold-pressed organic oils (olive, hemp and flax-seed) help the body by providing a lipid base that can remove harmful toxins in the body.

Alternative Grains:

Grains that contain gluten are full of potential toxins for those who are sensitive. Try alternative grains like quinoa, millet and buckwheat.

Cabbage:

Cabbage stimulates the activation of two crucial liver detoxifying enzymes that help flush out toxins.

Leafy Greens:

Spinach, lettuce and other leafy greens neutralize metals, chemicals and pesticides that may be in our foods, which provides protection for the liver.

Green Tea:

Green tea is full of plant antioxidants which improve liver function.

Avocadoes:

Avocados assist with the production of an antioxidant called glutathione, which is needed for the liver to filter out harmful materials.

Cruciferous Vegetables:

Broccoli, Brussels sprouts and other cruciferous veggies increase the amount of glucosinolate (organic compounds) in our bodies that helps create enzyme production for digestion.

Lemons and Limes:

Lemons and limes, full of Vitamin C, help cleanse the body of toxic materials and aid the digestion process.

Turmeric:

The spice, tumeric, has been known to help the body digest fats and stimulate the production of bile, and detox the liver.

Walnuts:

Walnuts are good sources of glutathione and omega-3 fatty acids, which can support liver through its cleansing process.
