6 Foods That Naturally Cleanse the Liver


6. Nuts

Nuts get a bad reputation because they are relatively high in fat and are often prepared with a lot of salt and sugar. But the natural fat in nuts is primarily the good, unsaturated variety and in their raw form, nuts can justifiably be classed as a superfood due to their high protein and antioxidant content.

And because nuts generally grow within a shell that is cracked and removed before eating, the nut meat is shielded from pesticides. Since the liver is responsible for neutralizing toxins in the blood stream, eating nuts is a good way to protect your liver by minimizing exposure to these environmental poisons.

And finally, studies done on people with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) have shown that daily nut and/or seed consumption improves liver enzyme levels. A nut habit may also reduce your risk of ever developing NAFLD.
