Most people understand the benefits of doing a colon cleanse.
Waste builds up inside you and it’s good to remove it.
You get why that is a healthy thing to do.
But why should you cleanse your liver?
Allow me to explain…
Your Liver Keeps You Charged Up With Energy
When food enters your body it’s your liver that turns it into energy.
When your liver is healthy your body will produce a constant flow of energy that can last all day without the side effects you get from stimulants like coffee and energy drinks.
When your liver is toxic you’ll feel slow and tired. Finding motivation becomes a problem.
The spark that helps you get up and go just isn’t there when your liver is sick.
Working out, meditating, getting enough sleep, even eating ultra-healthy won’t energize you when the organ (your liver) that’s responsible for turning food into energy is too sick to do its job.
Fortunately, your liver has the ability to regenerate and heal itself when you stop abusing it and start caring for it.
The liver is a unique organ. It is the only organ in the body that is able to regenerate. With most organs, such as the heart, the damaged tissue is replaced with scar, like on the skin. The liver, however, is able to replace damaged tissue with new cells.

How To Heal Your Liver
In the coming days we’ll be sharing more about how to heal your liver. But for now there are three foods you can start eating today that will help keep your liver in tip-top shape.
Here they are…
- Dandelion: Tea made from dandelion root can help break down visceral fats and aid in the production of amino acids. Breaking down fats makes it easier for the liver to do its job of detoxification.
- Garlic: Garlic is high in sulfur which traps harmful free radicals. It also contains selenium and allicin which can help in liver cleansing.
- Turmeric: Turmeric is a great spice for keeping your liver healthy. It contains curcumin which helps reduce inflammation in the body. It also assists the enzymes that flush out carcinogens from the liver.
Dandelion tea and garlic are easy to get a hold of. You can find them at any grocery store.
Turmeric is a bit more challenging to track down. Which is a shame because of the three foods, turmeric is probably the best at healing your liver.
If you can get your hands on fresh or even powdered turmeric there’s also a little something called “low bioavailability” you have to worry about.
What low bioavailability means is that turmeric isn’t absorbed well by your body.
It goes in your mouth and right out your… well you see what I’m getting at 😉
The best way to heal your liver with turmeric is by using a high-quality extract that’s formulated to be absorbed by your body.
Caring for your liver can enrich your quality of life.
Many problems we blame on getting older such as achy joints, always being tired, and a sluggish metabolism can often be caused by a sick liver.
Try eating a little cleaner, cut back on alcohol, and start using these three foods every day. When you stop abusing your liver and allow it to heal you may be surprised at how revitalized you feel.
