Why We Must All Look After Our Amazing Livers

Talking about livers is not a very sexy topic, yet they are the largest, most overworked and undervalued internal organs we have. Even more amazing is that recent research shows they can completely regenerate themselves in 8-15 days if we look after them.

Our liver not only plays an important role in metabolising any alcohol we drink but has many other important functions. These range from processing all our hormones, stress levels, and any medication we may be taking. 

Livers work particularly hard at night. If you are often waking between 2 and 4 am this maybe a sign you have a sluggish liver and it could do with some support. In turn this could improve your sleep quality.

Symptoms of a Sluggish Liver

  • Waking between 2 & 4 am.
  • Darker urine

  • Fatigue

  • Mood swings
  • Enlarged breasts in men

What foods can improve Liver Health?

You may be surprised to hear that research shows drinking more coffee and tea and adding more olive oil into your diet can improve the health of your liver. Eating more nuts, fatty fish, blueberries and cranberries and cruciferous vegetables can be helpful too. 

What else can I do to help my Liver?

  • Keep alcohol, junk food and toxins to a minimum
