The liver is always at work. It performs a wide range of functions, including removing toxins from the bloodstream, balancing macro-and micronutrients, and regulating hormones.

You don't even realize it's operating most of the time. Even if it ceases to perform properly, you might not notice anything unusual. However, untreated liver problems can lead to liver failure, which is a life-threatening condition.

There are several things you can take to prevent liver disease, fortunately. Detoxes, you may have heard, are a good method to keep your liver healthy.

1. Exercise regularly.

Physical activity benefits the entire body, not just your musculoskeletal and cardiovascular systems. It's also beneficial to your liver. Exercise's impact in non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), now one of the most common liver illnesses, was investigated in a 2018 study.

Both cardio and resistance training, according to the researchers, aid to reduce fat development in the liver. NAFLD is linked to fat accumulation. To gain the benefits, you don't have to run marathons. You can begin exercising now by going for a quick walk or riding your bike.

2. Consume alcohol in moderation.

Every alcoholic beverage you drink, including wine, beer, and spirits, is processed by your liver. The more alcohol you consume, the more work your liver has to do. Excessive drinking can harm the liver over time, causing liver cells to die. The term "alcohol-related liver disease" (ARLD) refers to a variety of liver disorders, including:

1. Fatty liver disease caused by alcoholism

2. Alcoholic hepatitis (acute)

3. Cirrhosis due to alcoholism

Follow the 2015–2020 Dietary Guidelines for Americans' alcohol recommendations to avoid alcohol-related liver damage. For women, this equates to one drink per day, whereas for men, it equates to two drinks per day.

3. Eat balanced diet or liver-friendly diet.

It should come as no surprise that your diet has a major impact on your liver's overall health. Try the following to guarantee that your diet benefits your liver in the long run:

Consume a wide range of foods. Whole grains, fruits and vegetables, lean protein, dairy, and healthy fats should all be included in your diet. Grapefruit, blueberries, almonds, and fatty fish are all recognized to provide potential liver-health benefits.

- Reduce your intake of fatty, sugary, and salty foods.

Foods heavy in fat, sugar, and salt can have a long-term impact on liver function. Fried and quick foods might also harm your liver's health.

4. Keep yourself hydrated.

To maintain your liver in good form, make sure you drink plenty of water every day.
