Liver friendly foods - Try to do Organic when possible
« on: October 27, 2015, 10:24:21 pm »
This is a list I complied through my own Internet research

Skim milk
Chamomile Tea
2 Omega 3-rich eggs
Sparkling water
Green Tea
Leafy Greens
Brussels sprouts
V8 vegetable juice
Brazil nuts
Flax seed
Pumpkin seeds

Herbs and Spices are generally good for the liver- these include jalapeno pepper, celery seed, celery leaf, peppercorns, chervil leaf, anise and aniseed, chili, ginger, coriander (cilantro) leaf, coriander seed, curry, cayenne, bay leaves, caraway seed, lemon grass, thyme, marjoram, mustard seed, turmeric, basil, chervil, parsley, paprika, nutmeg, lemongrass, dill leaf and seed, thyme, oregano, sage, garlic, cloves, chives, fenugreek, cardamom, poppy and sesame seeds, horseradish, wasabi, mace, stevia, cloves, cassia, pimento, cumin seed, galangal, cinnamon, saffron, rosemary, mint, fennel leaf and seed, green tea and others if they are natural.
Chemicals and hormones in water buy a water filter or filtered water.

Olive Oil – Cold-pressed organic oils, like olive oil, coconut oil, or hemp-seed oil, can help remove toxins that dissolve in fat instead of water, but these should be used in moderation as they are high in calories and make the liver work to use them.

Thank you for this information. I've attempted to ask this question to my medical team and was told to eat healthy and stay away from alcohol. I already knew that and was looking for more info and relevant to my issue.  Thank you for this list.

Great list, Bricksnsticks!

Turmeric (which is on your spice list) is especially important. It is anti-inflammatory, which can help both with liver inflammation and with extrahepatic manifestations, many of which are inflammatory.

Also, artichokes are GREAT for liver. And with steamed leaves dipped in lemon/yogurt mix - that's good for liver too. :)
