There are many foods and drinks that a person can consume to help protect the liver.
Coffee: One 2014 review suggests that over 50% of people in the United States consume coffee daily. Coffee appears to be good for the liver, especially because it protects against issues such as fatty liver disease. The review also notes that daily coffee intake may help reduce the risk of chronic liver disease. It may also protect the liver from damaging conditions, such as liver cancer.
Cruciferous Vegetables: These vegetables include broccoli, cauliflower, kale and mustard greens. They contain carotenoids and other powerful phytonutrients that help detox our system. Vitamins and minerals present in this group of vegetables help our liver.
Fruits: Apples, Grapes and Citrus Fruits
Fill your fruit basket with apples, grapes and citrus fruits like oranges and lemons, which are proven to be liver-friendly fruits. Consume grapes as it is, in the form of a grape juice or supplement your diet with grape seed extracts to increase antioxidant levels in your body and protect your liver from toxins. Having apple slices releases toxins from your digestive tract, easing the functioning of your liver. Including citrus fruits provides your liver with enzymes that help in liver detoxification.
Nuts to help reduce inflammation
A diet rich in nuts is associated with reduced inflammation, insulin resistance, and oxidative stress, and a lower prevalence of NAFLD. A large study in China found that increased nut consumption was significantly associated with a lowered risk of NAFLD and research found that people with fatty liver disease who eat walnuts have improved liver function tests.
