12 Natural Ways To Liver Cleanse


Think of your liver as your body’s housekeeper and handy-person. Really, your liver is responsible for cleaning the body of toxins (i.e., processed foods, chemicals in body care products, alcohol) to keep your internal organs running effectively. Basically the more toxin you take in; the more stress your liver suffers.

Perhaps it’s time to give your hard-working liver a well deserved break by implementing the following twelve naturally cleansing foods…

1. Lemon Juice

Lemon has naturally cleansing abilities. Just look in your kitchen to see just how many cleaning products have lemon as an ingredient. In fact, if you use green or DIY safe cleaners, you don’t need much more than lemon to give your kitchen a clean, lively, refreshing smell. Well, the same things goes for the inside of your body.

I do this one first thing each morning—a squeeze of lemon juice in a lukewarm glass of water. This is a well-known and natural kick-start to your body’s elimination organ. The acidity in the lemon wakes up the nerves in the digestive system and liver to encourage healthy digestion, and more optimal bowel movements.
