I’ve placed in their food groups so it is easier for your daily menu planning:
Root vegetables like carrots and beets are high in glutathione which is a protein and an antioxidant. It helps to prevent oxidative liver damage and also detoxifies.
Cruciferous vegetables like cabbage, brussel sprouts, broccoli, cauliflower are high in sulfur. They have a characteristic smell when cooked. They’re rich in antioxidant glucosinolate too. This helps the liver release enzymes to prevent damage and flush out environmental toxins.
Spinach is high in phytonutrients like saponins, flavonoids and pigments carotenoids. These are all powerful antioxidants and have anti-cancer effects on liver. Artichokes contain the nutrient cynarin that helps to improve bile secretion and offer protective effects.
Grapefruit is high in vitamin C and pigment lycopene. They’re 2 powerful antioxidants that help in liver cleansing. Citrus fruits like lemon and lime are rich in vitamin C — a liver protector. They also contain limonin, a compound that is a potent anti-cancer agent. Avocados contain glutathione, a powerful antioxidant that protects from oxidative damage.
Dandelion stimulates bile production and maintains liver function. Burdock root is often used in Ayurveda for liver cleansing. Milk Thistle contains the active ingredient silymarin that is often present in supplements. Holy Basil or Tulsi leaves improve liver enzyme production and function. Peppermint’s active ingredient is found to protect liver from arsenic poisoning.
Turmeric’s active ingredient is curcumin which reduces inflammation of liver and heals. Garlic’s pungent smell is due to the sulfur-containing compounds. Anti-inflammatory in nature, garlic supports liver function..
Quinoa, millet, buckwheat and walnuts provide healthy protein and fat content. This promote healthy liver function. Green tea is rich in catechins, and other powerful antioxidants. Being anti-inflammatory, green tea is a great liver-friendly drink.
