Who Needs :: Liver Cleansing ::  Everybody needs to cleanse his or her liver periodically – either for prevention or recovery since chronic disease often begins with toxic overload of the liver. An annual or bi-annual liver cleanse can do much to help maintain or regain good health.

Cleansing the Liver: There are three basic approaches to liver cleansing: liver/gallbladder flushes, diet, and herbal/antioxidants formulas. A liver/gallbladder flush can be useful to stimulate the flow of bile (a carrier medium for the elimination of many toxic substances from the body) and soften and eliminate stones from the gallbladder and liver. Such a flush should however, only be performed under the supervision of a health care professional.

What Foods Help Cleanse the Liver? Eating fresh fruits and vegetables is very important while on a liver-cleanse because they are high in fiber, water, vitamins and minerals. Water (one-half ounce for every pound of body weight) will help to dilute toxins, and fiber will escort them out of the body. Certain vitamins and minerals are needed for Phase I detoxification. Especially important are copper, magnesium, zinc and vitamin C. Other important nutrients are riboflavin, niacin, iron and certain phytonutrients (plant compounds) such as sulphur from cruciferous vegetables and the bioflavonoid quercetin. (2) An abundant intake of cabbage, broccoli and Brussels sprouts, as well as foods rich in B vitamins (whole grains) and vitamin C (peppers, tomatoes and citrus fruit) will ensure that the Phase I enzyme system is working well. Brightly colored fruits and vegetables contain powerful antioxidants that help combat the damaging free radicals generated from toxins and Phase I liver detoxification. Juicing these foods can be especially beneficial because in this predigested state, 100% of their food value becomes available to the body. Good vegetables to juice to support the liver are beets spinach, carrots, cabbage and cucumbers. Nutrient dense super foods in the form of green drinks are an excellent addition to the daily diet, providing the full spectrum of nutrients in a usable form.

The amino acids glutathione, glycine, cysteine, glutamine, methionine, taurine, gluatmic acid and aspartic acid play vital roles in Phase II liver detoxification. Glutamine “plays a chief role in ammonia detoxification, as well as helping to maintain mucosal integrity of the gastrointestinal tract.” (3) Fish organic chicken and eggs are excellent sources of these important amino acids.

While fried, greasy foods are to be avoided, we want to get plenty of good oils, especially those rich in essential fatty acids. Flax oil is heat sensitive, and should not be used in cooking. Use it in a salad dressing or take it in a capsule. Unrefined varieties of sesame and olive oil may be used for cooking.
