Love to Liver Detox

Your liver is responsible for processing toxins in the body, so you’ll want to keep it working at its best. Sometimes, though, diet or lifestyle can catch up to us, and, if that happens, a liver cleanse becomes necessary. With a cleanse, you’ll certainly get rid of all that toxic buildup, but there are lots of other perks as well.

6 Benefits of Liver Cleansing

Many people disregard liver cleansing, but there are some benefits associated with the practice. Not only does it jump start a healthy eating program, it may also help you lose weight. Just what can liver cleansing do for you? Well, here are just 6 pretty great benefits.

1. Weight Loss

Your liver produces bile, which the digestive systems use to break down fat. And since liver cleansing promotes bile production, detoxing your liver might be just the place to start if you want to lose weight.

2. Immune System Support

Since the liver reduces toxins, among other things, it makes sense that a healthy liver is crucial to a strong immune system. [1] [2] Cleansing your liver could even give your immune system a boost.

3. Discourages Liver Stones

Liver stones, a product of diet, form because of too much cholesterol. [3] The extra cholesterol makes bile harden into tiny stones that can block the liver and gall bladder; you could even have up to 200 to 300 of these affecting your liver’s ability to detox. When you cleanse, though, somewhere between 100 to 300 of the stones could actually be purged from your body.

4. Supports Whole Body Detox

Since the liver removes toxins, turning them into harmless byproducts, there are usually small amounts of toxins in your liver. This is generally not a problem. Issues start, however, when there’s a buildup of too many toxins. That’s when you need to detox in order to get your liver working exactly as it should.

5. Boosts Energy

Some of the harmless byproducts the liver makes are actually nutrients the body will use. Whether from liver stones or too much toxic build up, some of those nutrients simply won’t make it back into the bloodstream. When that happens, your energy levels will likely drop, so liver cleansing will make you feel better because not only will you have all of your nutrients—but also all of your energy.

6. Increases Vitality

Remember that by cleansing the liver, you’re restoring it to peak efficiency. Reducing all that toxic buildup will make your skin look brighter and healthier. And since promoting bile production helps with fat breakdown, you’ll also tone your body easier and could even look and feel at least five years younger!

A great way to begin the liver detox is with LiverActive homeopathic oral spray. It’s simple to use and highly effective at removing toxins for a healthier, less smelly you!

Drink a Juice or Two

Natural minerals and vitamins from nutrient rich food is the key to improving your overall health. Detoxing from refined foods, alcohol, meat and dairy products can dramatically assist in clearing out toxins, weight loss and of course body odors!

Increase the amount of raw fruits and vegetables in your diet and aim for at least 30% of your diet to consist of raw foods. This will boost the immune system, flush out the body of toxins and impurities and help to keep those smells at bay!

Good choices of raw foods include fruit, vegetable salads, raw nuts and seeds and sprouted legumes and seeds. Raw juicing can also help a lot to reduce inflammation and increase immune and gut health. A juice machine is a worthwhile investment! We love cold pressed juicers the most. They slowly extract and preserve the minerals/vitamins from the fruit and vegetables, making your juice far more beneficial.

Good things to juice are citrus, cabbage, kale, beet, carrot, apple, ginger, celery and fresh green herbs such as mint, parsley and cilantro. If you are super busy you can make a week’s supply of juice and freeze it in glass jars. If you freeze it immediately after making it, the healing properties will be retained. You will find benefit from drinking 7 to 8 ounces (200 to 300mls) of juice daily.

*Cold pressed/masticating juicers, will crush your ingredients in order to extract the greatest quantity of juice possible without compromising the nutrient quality. While you will need to cut your fruits and vegetables up into smaller pieces to enable the crushing to happen, unlike traditional juicing methods, cold pressing won’t generate nearly as much heat to significantly affect the juice.
