Learn how to support your liver’s natural ability to cleanse the body of toxins.
Detoxification diets and “cleanses” may be all the rage right now, but there are simpler and safer ways to keep your body free of toxins.
Take Care of Your Liver
The liver is the body’s natural waste-purification plant. It takes in blood from the digestive system, and filters out toxins before they can do harm. The liver also helps you maintain healthy energy levels by turning fat into energy and stabilizing your blood sugar.
Is Your Liver Overtaxed?
Some people argue that liver detoxification is necessary because modern-day life exposes us to more toxins than our bodies were designed to handle. It’s true that modern medications, food additives, air pollutants, and other toxins add to the liver’s workload; but this doesn’t necessarily mean you need a “cleanse”. What you do need is to stay away from the toxins you CAN avoid, while also stocking up on liver-friendly nutrients. Your liver is a self-cleansing organ; you just need to give it the resources and space it needs to do its job.
Tips for a Healthy Liver
Eat a Balanced Diet: One of the reasons people feel better after a cleanse diet is because they have stopped eating chemical-filled processed foods. You can get this feeling any time by changing your diet to incorporate more natural whole foods, and by eliminating processed foods.
Exercise: Building and maintaining muscle mass can lighten the load on your liver. This is because muscle tissue plays a role in clearing toxins from your system.
Cut Back on Alcohol: While the occasional drink can have health benefits, repeatedly overindulging in alcohol can damage your liver.
Supplement Antioxidants: Antioxidants like our Renew Youth Alpha Lipoic Acid and Renew Youth Melatonin Liposomal Spray can support your liver’s ability to flush out toxins. Or talk to us about injectable glutathione. Glutathione is often referred to as the “mother of all antioxidants”. It’s also an amino acid that the liver needs to do its work.
Boost Your B Vitamins: Low levels of folate and B Vitamins have been linked to liver damage and liver cancer. When supplementing folate, it’s important to take a methylated form of this supplement. Try our Renew Youth Folate 5-MTHF. For other B Vitamins, try our Renew Youth B-Complex. Or talk to us about injectable forms of the B Vitamins like B12.
Add Liver-Friendly Minerals: Supplementing zinc has been shown to prevent oxidative liver damage. It can also help with liver function, even in individuals with liver diseases. Selenium is another important mineral for liver function. It has antioxidant properties, may help mobilize cancer-fighting cells, and helps combat the tissue rigidity that can occur due to liver disease.
