Love Your Liver

July 14, 2022

Summer is an amazing time to appreciate the abundance of nature. Whether one is indulging in the bounty of summer harvests or cookouts, it’s the perfect time to take some time for self care. We recommend focusing on liver restoring and rejuvenating strategies.


Balance your meal plan

Aim for an anti-inflammatory meal plan that is kind to your liver. What does that look like? Eat more antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables (i.e. berries, beets, carrots, sprouts), lean proteins (i.e. chicken, turkey, small fish), healthy fats (i.e. avocado, eggs, walnuts), and fiber-dense carbohydrates (i.e. steel cut oats, cassava, okra, chia seeds). You can jumpstart this lifestyle with the Daily Benefit Detox set.

 

Stay active

Exercise regularly to burn fat (i.e. triglycerides) for energy and avoid accumulating liver fat. Opt for at least 30 minutes of moderate exercise 5 days a week.

 

Check your household items

The Environmental Working Group’s databases offer amazing tools to help you determine if your household products contain as few toxins as possible. You can check cosmetics, cleaning products, personal care products, and even food and water!


Supplements we recommend*

  • Detox Nutrients – This proprietary blend of nutrients and antioxidants provides comprehensive, high-level support for phase I and phase II liver detoxification - a necessary process for the body to maintain health and vitality. We recommend taking 2 capsules with dinner.
  • NAC – N-acetyl cysteine is a heavily-studied substance for its detoxification effects and role in protecting the liver from damage. Take 1 capsule twice daily or as recommended by your healthcare provider.
  • Advanced Tudca – Tauroursodeoxycholic acid (TUDCA) is a bile acid that can help stimulate healthy bile drainage and liver detoxification processes. We recommend taking 1 capsule with dinner.
  • Milk Thistle – This herb is a powerful antioxidant for the liver. It also helps the liver to heal itself. Take 1 capsules twice daily.
