2. Add Certain Foods to Your Diet
Removing certain foods from your diet isn’t enough, however. You must then incorporate healthier choices in order to boost the liver’s function and maintain it over time. Consume plenty of fruits and vegetables, preferably fresh, which contain valuable vitamins and minerals that the liver needs to perform its functions.
Fruits and vegetables—along with whole grains, rice, and cereals—are also high in fiber, which Livestrong.com says help the body “efficiently eliminate toxins” by increasing “the frequency and quality of bowel movements.” Dr. Axe adds that it’s important to choose organic whenever possible, as these foods are free from the harmful pesticides and toxins that are present in traditional crops and meats, which the liver has to work hard to remove from the body.
