The liver is the cleaner of our organism, known as the “quiet organ,” because it doesn’t react, but once you’ve poisoned it, chaos occurs in the body.
These are the symptoms which indicate that your liver is burdened:
– Chronic fatigue
– Frequent headaches
– Mood swings
These things happen if you do the following to your liver:
Excessively and frequently eat fast food, greasy and fried. Food such as potato chips, donuts, French fries, i.e. food that has a lot of fat, is too burdensome and toxic to the liver. It contains lipid peroxides which damage the liver cells.
Excessive consumption of coffee
Excessive consumption of coffee mostly harms the liver of older people. Decreased kidney function joins this, so the elderly are not recommended to consume more cups of coffee a day.
Alcohol is decomposed in the liver, and its excessive amount leads to various damages, including damage to the brain, pancreas and the entire nervous system. The toxic effect of alcohol on the liver includes deposition of fat, the possibility of developing hepatitis and cirrhosis.
Cigarettes have many toxic ingredients inside, including benzopyran, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, cyanide, tar, acetaldehyde, acrolein… All this can come in the blood of smokers and the task of the liver is anything but easy.
Traces of pesticides in the food accumulate in the liver and can cause chronic diseases. Also, various types of medicines, pills and other substances badly affect the liver, which you already know.
If you want to clear the liver, doctors recommend eating more healthy food, namely the following products:
– Legumes (beans, lentils, peas)
– Green and bitter vegetables
Bitter vegetables, which includes arugula and asparagus, which contains bio and polyphenols, food that cleanses the blood of toxic products, encourages the work of the liver and kidneys.
