Love your Liver

Natural Cleansing Support for optimum health

One of the most popular questions which our customers ask is – What can I do to detox my body on a daily basis?

Fortunately, our bodies are moving chemicals and waste through our detoxification systems and eliminating toxins regularly. In our modern day lifestyle, there are often more toxins going in than our detoxification organs can deal with combined with diet choices which are low in required nutrients.

Let’s take a look at your everyday choices which may need extra processing by your liver.

  • Are you regularly consuming caffeine and sugar?
  • Are you consuming foods high in artificial colours, preservatives and sweeteners?
  • Does your personal products such as deodorants, shampoo, body wash and hair colours contain chemicals?
  • Stress hormones also must be broken down in the liver.
  • Are you a smoker?

Once the liver has processed everything we eat, drink and put on our skin, any residual toxins need to be eliminated by the kidneys, lungs, skin and intestines. To support the elimination of toxins, the following guidelines are recommended daily:

1. Drink plenty of water to help move waste through the body.

2. Include ample fibre to feed good bacteria which can help with moving toxins out of the body via the stool. Good fibre sources include nuts, seeds, beans, lentils, psyllium husks and oats.

3. Aim to include liver supporting foods in your diet which include onions, garlic, broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower and pak choi. You can add these foods to stir fries, roasted vegetable dishes, salads and side dishes.

Good digestion is key to helping all organs of elimination work efficiently. Be aware also of taking time to breathe deeply to support lung function which will help oxygenate the body. Skin brushing is also recommended daily before a shower to help move lymph fluid. Our bodies can send us signals that it needs an extra boost to help with the cleansing process. We can take a look at supplements that can really help relieve symptoms such as sluggishness, constipation, bad breath, low energy and skin flare ups.

An excellent supplement to take as an overall boost for liver and digestive health is New Nordic Active Liver. It combines Milk Thistle, Artichoke, Turmeric and Choline in one combination. Milk Thistle protects and supports liver cells and promotes liver cell regeneration. Artichoke helps production of bile which is linked with improving cholesterol levels. Turmeric is well known for its anti-inflammatory properties. Choline is all about helping with fat metabolism.

I highly recommend this product as a natural boost especially if you are trying to change daily habits such as cutting back on caffeine or eating healthier. It will support the body’s cleansing processes and give an overall lift to mood and energy.
