Fight Fatty Liver Disease with These 12 Natural Methods!
5. Lemon Juice
This sour fruit contains high levels of vitamin C, which is a vital antioxidant that encourages the liver to make more enzymes called glutathione. Glutathione neutralizes toxins. Lemons also contain a substance called naringenin, which helps to stop inflammation of the liver, according to a study done in 2014 and published in the journal Clinical and Experimental Pharmacology and Physiology. Simply squeeze the juice from half of an organic lemon into a glass of water and drink this two or three times each day. If you happen to be one of the rare people who really enjoy lemons, feel free to eat one every day, but be certain to rinse your mouth well with plain water afterwards to avoid damage to your teeth.
