Easy Ways to Keep Your Liver Healthy

Have you ever wondered how important role does our liver plays in the overall well being of our body system? From  neutralizing and disposing of toxins, feeding your body the energy it needs to function, fighting against viruses and infections, regulating sex hormones, to processing cholesterol levels and vitamin and mineral supplies in your body, liver manages almost 500+ functions to channelize our day in day out health.  So loving your liver becomes pretty pertinent. And it gets easier when you know the right technique to care. Read here few easy to follow tips for good liver health:

Maintain a healthy weight: If you carry any excess weight around your middle, it can cause insulin resistance which often leads to fatty liver disease. Measure your middle and  keep it at a healthy circumference. Men should maintain a waist of less than 102cm and women, less than 88cm. Exercising and eating a diet that’s low in fat and high in fibre, vitamins, antioxidants and minerals will help you maintain a healthy weight and liver.

Avoid fad diets: Foods to avoid or decrease in your diet nonorganic foods in general, but especially meats, poultry, eggs and dairy, refined sugar, alcohol, and coffee to name a few.

And try to increase your intake of sprouts, collard greens,  cauliflower, leafy greens such as spinach, dandelion greens and foods that are high in fiber such as pears, apples, oats and cinnamon.

Drink Clean Water

Replace any soda, juice or coffee you drink with clean water. Getting enough water in your system is very important for detoxification.

Drink alcohol in moderation : Alcohol is critical to your health. While alcoholism is more common among men, women are more susceptible to the adverse effects of alcohol on the liver. Reason is it takes as little as 20 grams of alcohol daily (only two standard drinks) for women to develop liver problems. So you have a good reason now to cut back your drinks. To seek help talk to your doctor.

Go for regular blood tests

A blood test is the best way to keep a keen eye on the levels of fat, cholesterol and glucose in your blood – all of which are associated with fatty liver disease. Too much glucose can be an indication that you have Impaired Glucose Tolerance or Diabetes – in both cases you’ll need to carefully control your blood sugar levels through diet, medications and/or weight loss.
